Oh, OK. 

It looks like I can book that 1 year in advance.  I will make a note on my calendar!  :)

I guess there are 2 group campsites at Arches:  Canyon Wren and Juniper.  I believe Juniper gets a bit more shade (I could be wrong), but other than that, I don't know them well enough to have a preference.

Unless someone else who is planning on attending has a preference between those or wants to suggest a different location I am good with you picking. Do you need deposits from people who are coming to make the reservation or are you okay to collect money on site at the event?

Man it would be nerveracking to be around a bunch of Mustachians in a way. I'd feel the need to explain how I had gotten everything I was wearing on sale and how I had brewed the ethanol to power the car to get to Moab myself.

I'll be there in my F150 clown truck riding a $7K mountain bike. Both bought new. So don't worry I'll draw away any Frugality Police. ;)

Oh good, I am pretty sure the frugality police would have a field day with me.

I personally am happy with either of the campsites so happy to leave it to whichever one will be available to book. :)

I'm OK with making the reservation and then extorting money from folks at the campsite later.  ;-)

I'll be there with my clown car Tundra and a $15K camper, no there will be no face punches from me!  :)

I've done a LOT of Mustachian meetups.

There's no judgement. Everyone has some anti-Mustachian things.

Don't worry about it. :)

I had never really looked at what the group sites cost as was never applicable to me. It definitely is a lot more affordable than the individual campsite at $25 per night.

Fees
 

Campground
Nightly Fee
 
Devils Garden $25

Canyon Wren Group Site 11-16 campers = $75
 17-22 campers = $100
 23-28 campers = $125
 29-35 campers = $160
Juniper Group Site 11-22 campers = $100
 23-33 campers = $150
 34-44 campers = $200
 45-55 campers = $250
Plans are useless. Planning is indispensable.

I'm just finding out about this thread. I'm tentatively interested in both a 2017 and 2018 gathering. There are quite a few of us who live in northern Utah who get together every 6-8 weeks already. I don't think any of them have seen this thread yet, so I'll put it out there for them, too.

If people do want to come to Utah for an Oct. 2017 gathering, there are certainly plenty of other parks, too. So the Arches construction doesn't need to kill that idea.

Hard to commit this far out but this would be awesome for two reasons:  1) I also plan to FIRE about that time, and 2) when younger I did mountain biking all over Moab and Canyonlands.

FWIW, I still ride the same MTB...
