Default How far ahead do you book events?

I have people inquiring about events for next summer, I usually get a signed contract and a $250 to reserve a date. This is my first year and I am booked the rest of the summer but with people wanting to reserve us for next year I am not sure how to handle it. I am thinking it is too early to quote something so I wondered how others handle this.

Nice problem to have. The first issue that comes to mind is who the hell knows what meat prices might be next summer!?! Could you work out something where $250 reserves the date with maybe a ballpark estimate, then a firm quote 60 to 90 days in advance?
