  • GON 2009...anyone goin??

    Now with the gas prices down are you still going to go??

    Last year, I saw a decline and alot of cancellations due to the gas prices..... so now this year, things have gone down, wonder if attendance will be up?? The Balloon Fiesta and State Fairs saw a huge decline in attendance in 2008 so I wonder if its gonna effect GON this year.

    As usual, I will have my GON Hotel rates at the Townplace Suites near the 'pit'. I think GON has opted to go with the MCM Elegante which is pretty far away. Keep in mind the government rates in Albs was raised in October for 80.00 per night, so most of the rates are going to be that and above for a decent hotel.

    The daily rate for GON is 19.00 per day, dunno what the 2 day passes are goin for...*S*. Then you have to pay the parking fees on top of that, ugh. Then you have your 10.00 Indian taco's and 5.00 hotdogs...LOL.

    But I am going to have my booth again this year, so drop by. If you want low hotel rates at nice hotels near the pit, email me, I will have the rates posted by the end of this week. If you need airline or car rates, I have special rates for them too.

    Hope to see you there.... Nezzy

    I hope to go, but I am surprised that airfares don't seem to be going down. You would think that they would- or that airlines would at least get rid of the extra luggage fees or something, although to be honest, I seldom check bags.

      Passing on GON 09, saving $$ for NABI in Glendale. Hopefully it's cheaper. Check out Super Bowl Champs AZ Cardinals Stadium.

                Yep, we're going this year, and i do mean it! *LOL* We didn't go for the past 2 years, so I'm definitely going this year.

                $40 for 2 day passes?! Well, I guess I'll be busy having raffle and food sales until then. *ROFL* So stop by my house and buy something, will ya? *LOL* GON or bust for me. Aye!

                  GON prices & all things associated with it, are just getting too expensive. Food Vendors are out of control, etc.

                  Did I read it will cost $18 p/day for tickets to the Pit and it will cost $40 for a 2-day pass?

                  What's wrong w/that picture?

                  Hint: Just buy (2) separate daily tickets @ $18 a piece. It will be cheaper than a 2-day pass @ $40.

                    i heard it was 38 bucks?? and the braclet includes in and outs which is soo important cause if u go in with a one day theres no guarantee u can get back in. the pit is gonna fill up haha whether u like it or not. pulling an all day and nighter there at the pit is tough! totally tried it!

                    alot of nice drums there from all over, nice songs and the newest outfitss for the new year keeps me going back

                    one of the cooest things is when they do the hoop dance special, not really for the hoops but its a chance for a rocking drum to knock off eight to ten push ups haha MNX i think jammed and last year was TBZ. totally recorded that S***! total coolness
                    thanks dad for showing me the way, teaching me the language, and not leaving my mother...*L*

                                Yes, they are finally here!! So I have a little bit of options here for all of you. Of course, by recommendation and based on last year's response, the Towneplace Suites have been chosen to be the lead hotel. This year, I was guaranteed that all the 2 bedroom suites will be priority to Native Paths....

                                So...why are gas prices so high???
                                by Smokin' Ace
                                This may be a crazy question, but for the life of me, I can not understand why the gas prices are going thru the roof - and why the Government isn't doing something to alter the uprise...Am I alone in this questioning??? :dontknow: I just am trying to figure it out. Seeing the average gas prices across...

                                since the anniversary of my birthdate in July of this year, I have converted to drinking only Tim Hortons premium blend coffee.

                                i have since used up one 2-pound can already. thinking that i would be able to order online, i held off until i was down to the final scoops in a second can...
