CANCELED Klipsch Museum Pilgrimage Events (REFUND INFORMATION)

Recommended Posts

Refund Information for Museum Events, Benefit Concert and Employee Appreciate Luncheon.

 

Dear Klipsch fans:

 

As you have probably heard the 2020 Klipsch Pilgrimage has been cancelled.

 

For refunds for Museum Events, including concert tickets, you have three easy choices:

 

1. You can request that your fees and charges be converted to a Museum membership;

 

2. You can request that your fees and charges be donated to the Museum's building fund which is being used to purchase, renovate and restore the Field House strategically located right next door to the Clinton National Historic Site in Downtown Hope, AR; or

 

3. You can request a full refund which will be processed on the credit card that was used to make the original purchase.

 

Options 1 and 2 are tax deductable to the fullest extent of the law as the Museum is an IRS recognized 501(c)(3) charitable entity. The unforeseen cancellation of Pilgrimage has put the Museum behind in its fundraising goals and your consideration of a donation would be greatly appreciated.

 

You can arrange for your refund for Museum Events and concert tickets by contacting me at travis@Klipschmuseum.org or a direct message here on the forum indicating option 1, 2 or 3. I will also be happy any questions you may have not covered by this post. 

 

For those not frequently this Fourm, an email be sent out to everyone who purchased events or concert tickets.

 

Refunds for the Friday employee appreciation lunch will be handled by the fans' organizer,  Christy and you can direct message her here for instructions on how to obtain a refund.

 

Thank you for your loyalty and enthusiasm in celebrating all things Klipsch and the Klipsch Museum of Audio History at the annual Pilgrimage. 

 

In the meantime, we will continue to work hard to make the 75th anniversary of Klipsch in 2021 the best Pilgrimage of all time and look forward to seeing you all next year.

 

Be safe and rock on!

Hi,

 

Is this a complete list of events? Are there any events on Friday between the Thursday early check-in, dinner, and socializing, and the Friday evening dinner and concert?

 

Thanks,

The Friday morning event is the tours of the plant and employee apreciation lunch which is run seperately by the fans and coordinated by Christy @dtel's wife. You go to this link to register for that event.

This post is respectfully directed to all Klipsch Forum members, Klipsch Group and to the KMAH Members:

 

As many of many of you may be aware, my wife, Verna and I have been constant supporters of the Klipsch forum, pilgrimages and now the museum for some 18 years. And as of last year,  we're proud to say that our son Bill is now a member of the forum (pickys son) and a pilgrimage attendee as well. We three had planned to attend this year's pilgrimage in Hope next month. However, for the past year, my wonderful bride has endured all of the horrors associated with going through breast cancer, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. I am thrilled to say she came through it all quite well. It was initially our belief that by this March, she would most likely be back on track physically. Unfortunately, such is not the case: Daily fatigue can sometimes overwhelm her days: Even though she might have gotten eight hours of sleep the night prior, by one or two o'clock in the afternoon, it's become commonplace for her to lay down in bed and sleep soundly for 3 to 4 hours, only for her again to need to retire early in the evenings. Therefore, yesterday morning, she and I discussed with seriousness, the notion of our attending this year's 2020 Klipsch Pilgrimage in Hope. We live in Michigan. Sadly, it is our belief that with the 14 hour-drive down and back, the exciting, activity-laden, early starting/late ending days that typically each pilgrimage in the past has brought to our experience, are something that Verna is simply not ready to negotiate just yet. We have both come to the realization that it could take up to a year for Verna's lifestyle to normalize. Because of this, it is with heavy hearts that we, together with our son, must announce that we have regrettably chosen to bow out of this year's pilgrimage. We shall miss seeing all of you and are sorry we will miss all of the events as well as the many trips out to Rodney's Farm. We do, however, hope to attend next year's 75 Year Anniversary Celebration, wherever it takes place! May God bless you all!

 

Kindest regards, Glenn, Verna and Bill

Glenn,

Tell Verna she will be in our prayers. My wife so enjoyed visiting (well me too) with her the past 2 pilgrimages.

  God Bless you both.

I found the schedule for those events in a different thread that I didn't notice before (the itinerary). Thank you.

I have just discovered this event, what a great idea. I was a Klipsch dealer in the 70's, knew Paul personally. Some old friends and I are planning to come. I have a Lance camper on an F250. I also will have a dog with me. Is there camping onsite? Perhaps at the airport?

I do not need hookups.

Hey Sam, the Super 8 is pet friendly. In addition, I believe there are RV spots at Newton Ranch if you wish to stay out there (Christy can get you more information on that) or if you want a spot in town (no hookups) let me know and I can get you set up.

Searching the internet, I don't come up with anything for Newton Ranch? I don't really need hookups, and since part of the event is at the airport, I thought there may be parking there?  (I am a licensed pilot, if that helps).

Hi, new question.

 

I've submitted payment to the Klipsch Pilgrimage PayPal account, and in the comment I gave my name so my registration could be recorded. I read that I should expect to receive an acknowledgement and a discount code for something, but I haven't received any email from the gmail account associated with the pilgrimage at the gmail account I use for my PayPal account, apart from PayPal's own confirmation. Will I receive a confirmation email from the event, and should I expect that sooner or might it come later as part of a bulk emailing?

Great questions.  @dtel's wife Christy can answer your questions about registration process for the Fan Events, and what confirmation you will receive. She can also advise you on how she is forwarding the discount code for free registration.

 

You can contact me directly at travis@klipschmuseum.org and I can walk you through the registration process.

I won't be able to attend but want to send in some money to go towards where ever things appear to be short.  (I'll leave it to the committee to decide where it's best spent) :)

 

 

What email address do I send the PayPal funds to?

 

Thanks

JJ
