EARLY REGISTRATION IS OPEN!
O’Leary Group Campground, Flagstaff AZ
September 16 – 19, 2021
Preliminary Summary (Rally Details and Schedule TBD)
Pre-Payment of the Registration Fee (campsite reservation) is required with Early-Registration; the three-night total is: ($67.00) (includes processing fees and non-refundable reservation fee).
In light of the current situation (Covid-19 Pandemic), we are “cautiously optimistic” that time and circumstance will allow this rally to be held. Of course, we will adapt to the reality of the situation as the date of the rally approaches.
Early-Registration is the process of Registration and collection of payment for campsite reservations significantly far in advance of the rally, which will allow the club to recover the advance funding that was required for the reservations.
Arizona Airstream Club has advance reservations for seventeen (17) O'Leary Group Campground campsites.
Approximately two to three months prior to the rally, when all event/rally fees are known, Early-Reserved site holders will be notified of the need to either submit a Cancellation Notice or complete a second Confirmation of Attendance and Event/Rally Fees Payment in order to remain on the Rally Attendee List. Any early campsite reservations not reconfirmed will be refunded and the campsites will be made available to wait-list participants in order (if there is a wait-list).
A wait-list will be established in the event all campsites are Early-Reserved.
Finally, if there remain any unreserved campsites two to three months prior to the rally, normal Rally Registration/Payment for rally campsite fees and rally event fees/rally fees, etc. would be opened to all WBCCI members for those remaining sites, just as in a normal rally schedule to fill any non-reserved sites.
We know that we are asking for your commitment to a rally that is significantly down the road and due to circumstances, might present multiple challenges. The Club will continue to plan for the future, fully acknowledging that we are clearly planning for events in an unprecedented and unknowing future. As always, we are appreciative and grateful for your support.

“Sunset Crater National Monument Cordless Rally”
Sunset Crater National Monument preserves the largest vent of an eruption that occurred in 1085. Sunset Crater is the youngest volcano on the Colorado Plateau. The volcano’s red rim and the dark lava flows seem to have cooled and hardened to a jagged surface only yesterday. As plants return, so do the animals that use them for food and shelter..
O'Leary Group Campgound:
The O’Leary group facilities offers many amenities for hosting large group gatherings, such as trash collection and drinking water. Our campsites are dry and shaded; bring your generators.
O'Leary Group Campground is named after O'Leary Peak and was constructed in 2001. This group campground offers large groups the opportunity to camp and explore the nearby national monuments.
This area of volcanic activity is so unique that much of it has been set aside as the Sunset Crater National Monument. Wupatki National Monument is nearby and is a four-story masterpiece of Native American stone masonry. Construction of that stone-age condominium began around A.D. 1120. At one time it contained as many as 100 rooms and housed as many as 125 people. Both Sunset Crater and Wupatki National Monuments have visitor centers and feature self-guided and interpreter guided tours.
