We objected to the parking volunteers and Bob before setting up but in the end didn’t want to make a scene. This might be a deal-breaker next year.
We were blocked in for the week by Berkshire rigs and had to wait until several RVs left before we could leave Saturday.
We had a short space and couldn’t use the ramp to get the bike in and out of the garage. With all the rain, that was not optimal.
FYI - Apparently there was no "XLR group" nor was there a Berk "group" this year. Last year we tried to park all the longer XLRs together on the northeast part of the outside ring around the track due to the DEEP spots. There are 9 spots there; all were scheduled for long XLRs. So I did some checking and 8 of the 9 spots were used for XLRs (one was a late no show and the spot was used for a Columbus that needed to go to the Factory on Tuesday.
There were a few XLRs parked in the Grove and in the Meadow and one was parked alongside the Dairy Barn. There was a group of Berks who wanted to be parked together and they were parked along the back fence in the Grove and there were a few Berks in the Meadow. There were Berks scattered all over the fairgrounds.
How long was your XLR? The 30 foot models should have had plenty of room in the Grove.
