Have any of you heard form the overnight towns about HOST FAMILY’s yet?

I have not and was wondering when to expect to hear as well. I sent an email early last week to onawahousing asking about it and haven’t received a reply to that either.

I have not heard either. This is my first year applying so not really sure what to expect in terms of response. I have seen several of the towns aggressively trying to match requests with hosts on Facebook so that is a good sign. I guess we wait and see? What I was wondering is if we will get an email/note at some point that says, “sorry, we could not match you with a host home.”

I’ve been contacted the day we pull into town 😉 seriously, even the best case scenario is often a week or 2 before start.

I heard from a family in Sigourney over a month ago. I applied in 2 other cities. This is my first time also so I thought that having not heard anything by now it wasn’t going to happen. Reading the posts here gives me hope it could still happen in the other 2 towns. Thanks!!

Me too Cynthia B, I have been matched with housing as late as the Friday prior to the ride. Do not ever count on housing, look at it as a pleasant surprise, a gift in fact.

I also heard from Sigourney but not any other area I applied for housing. If it happens I will be very happy.

Hey There, My team and I apply every year and have been pretty fortunate to get placed most nights. We are a small group that just request a yard (no inside sleeping). In the past we have heard back as early as first week or two in June, but not a peep this year… yet. I wonder if the Register has instructed the towns to wait until a certain date to send out the notices? Also not uncommon to hear back later in July, so fingers crossed I guess. Always an adventure.

I just heard back from onawa Friday. They said they had 190+ housing requests. As far as the rest I haven’t heard anything.
