1. If I understand there is NO benefit to arriving early in terms of preferential RV parking locations. EG full hook ups etc
2. People who do elect to arrive early will be located (if at all possible) at their assigned location for the rally and need to arrange/pay the fairgrounds for the days camped before the official start
If these statements are true how and when do they determine your parking location for they rally?
For those that have attended in the past what is a reasonable arrival time and date?
hoping to not arrive and the busiest most hectic time and day along with 740 of my newest friends
Any Dos and Don'ts would be most appreciated
LOOKING FORWARD TO A GREAT EVENT
From frog Bob's mouth.
Time to chime in, I guess.
Parking is not in order of registration. Early registration, as we've been saying all along, does not guarantee a full hookup site, since I'm assuming that's the real issue here. Early arrival also does not guarantee a full hookup site, as we've also been saying all along.
Here's the situation, which can vary occasionally by whim.
There are four club groups that I've told will be parked together -- Cedar Creek, Cardinal, Columbus, and R-Pod -- the world-famous "R-Pod Village." Some of the sites being used for these groups are full hookups and some are not, with a mix involved. For example, where we're putting Cedar Creek (108 of them), there are full hookup permanent sites and W/E only temporary sites. Same with Columbus.
I'll be using some full hookup sites for medical situations that I know require them. I'll be using some for other handicap situations. Some will be for people that I'm asking to come in almost a week early for parking (e-mail will FINALLY be out this week). Some will be luck of the draw or benevolent dictatorship.
Before you arrive, you'll have been assigned to an area, but not to a particular site. When you arrive, you'll be escorted to that area and parked in the next available site. If you want to park next to someone, please plan to arrive together
So -- park by registration order? No. Park by arrival order? Yes, but in a pre-designated area. "But Bob promised me that I'd have a full hookup site"? No, I did not. I wish we had 700 full hookups and that they all had 50 amps, but we don't.
We'll probably be parking at least 350 units just on Sunday. Just like in Smokey and the Bandit
, "we've got a long way to go and a short time to get there." Getting everyone parked will require patience, cooperation, and understanding, and we'll appreciate it a lot.
