I agree with everything that Tom, Marty, and Bob said. There's not much within walking distance (although as Steven Wright says, "Every place is within walking distance if you have enough time.") There's a WalMart Super Center about two miles away on US33 South, and several good restaurants between there and the fairgrounds. Das Essenhaus is in Middlebury, about 12 miles away.
On the two nights when we don't serve dinner at the fairgrounds, Tuesday and Thursday, there will probably be some potluck dinners. There was a huge one last year, plus several others organized by brand groups -- Cedar Creek, Cardinal, R-Pod, and probably others that I don't know about.
On tours, six of the original seven are filled -- two were filled on the day that registration opened. Tour #1 is the one that has some openings. We've also added Tour #8, another Boat/Bison/Bar-B-Q, on Thursday to handle the fact that we accidentally allowed #3 to overfill. Tour #8 also has a few spots still left.
To add tours, please DO NOT go to the FROG website and re-register. Go to www.frogrally.com
, where you paid for your registration, and enter as a returning customer. If you don't know the password you used to get in, call me and I can reset it for you.
In the next few days we should have the service request forms available on the FROG website. I sent them over to IT on Monday, so that should be up soon.
Finally, in the next couple of days you'll be getting a LOOOONG e-mail from me asking you to confirm all of the information on your registration. We want to make sure that everything is accurate to make your arrival and check-in quicker and your stay at the FROG Rally more pleasant.
