      Yes, we will again be laying the bricks at the Vietnam Memorial in Angel Fire over the Labor Day weekend 9/3/22 (Saturday). We are always needing help with this task Thursday and Friday. This cannot be done without your help. Make sure you have reservations as we will still be meeting Friday night and dinner after on Saturday. Menu and price is not set yet but make your reservations ASAP. SCOOTER

      Are group rates established at Angel Fire Resort or other hotels yet?  Anything we need to tell them when making reservations (group rate code or??)?

      Thanks,

      thanks,

      Brick ordering for this year has reached the limit. The gift shop at the Memorial takes orders for the Bricks online. Any Bricks ordered now will be layed next year.

       

      NOTE: This is not an official Run for the Wall event. This is an gathering of individuals to support the Brick Laying and to gather together. Riders and supporters from all Routes are Welcome.

      Made reservations at Angel Fire Resort today.  They do have discounts if you ask for “brick laying”.  Still quite a bit higher than last year though.

      Myself and two others from Madras, OR plan to leave here August 27th or 28th and arrive on the 1st of September.

      It’s been 3 years since we have stayed in Angel Fire/Eagle Nest. Things have changed business have closed or changed hands some have passed. Prices will be higher so is gas. The Laying of the Bricks is not sponsored/supported by the RFTW so there are no negotiated room rates.

      I know the question has been asked but haven’t seen an answer…Are there group rates for hotels?

        Since this is not an official Run for the Wall event, there are no group rates available. The Angel Fire resort may give a discount if you mention Run for the Wall, but no guarantees.
