Goshen Rally 2016 Banter Thread

Hello all, though a concise place for all at or attending the Rally to discuss the 2016 Rally.

Arrived Saturday and the Fairgrounds look great. The fair is all cleaned up with a few touches left to complete. We are part of the parking and registration crew. Said hello to some fellow frogs yesterday. Had a nice dinner with dblr and his DW last night. More fun to come!
If crossing at Port Huron from Canada there might be a delay due to painting. We went through Saturday at 10 am and spent a total of 15 minutes from Toll to US Customs exit.

Great idea for this thread. The other one you started at last years rally I believe is getting enormous
We are heading to Goshen early Monday and following your exact tracks. Any road or construction issues?

French, we took 401/402/I69/I84 then US 131 to Indiana 13 to SR 34 to the Fairgrounds.

Somes construction on I 69 but clear sailing, safety lanes for workers and reduced speed a few places. Aforementioned border delay could add some time.

Our travel time total was 8 hours including a lunch/fuel stop in Burton MI Birthplace of SYE Famous Tiki-Hut.

Last year I emailed to volunteer but never heard back. I ended up volunteering again when I got there. I helped at the factory tour sign up table for a few hours. As stated above check in with FROG Bob or again when you check in.

In contacting volunteers, I particularly scanned for those that had mentioned parking in their messages. We still have ample opportunities for golf cart shuttle drivers, staff for the FROG office in the vendor area, folks to help load buses, and others.

Please stop by at registration or at the FROG office during the week.
