I didn't really give it a good look before but I'm sure this question has yet to be answered:

How are we setting up the parking on the day of the actual show (saturday)? Is it a predetermined formation or first come first serve? and when is everyone showing up to start this formation? I wanna make sure I get there early enough, and can do that by telling my friend either he does his morning run really early or he doesn't go at all, cause last time I was late because he claimed he would fall drastically out of practice even missing one day... so we got there 10:30-ish after some people at our good old Flemington Shop Rite tried to get us into a raffle for some crappy ass 6-banger Mustang when all we wanted was ice!

ANYWAY! Is there any form of an itinerary of events with times or is that coming out closer to show time? Thanks.

Well, last year we all met @ Bruce's place (alot of us) at like 7:30-8:00am and then we drove down there for around 9:00am (I don't remember exactly for sure) There's not really a formation, but I think that we should do that. It would be easier for the voting (300M/DI.Net contest) At least have the 1st gen. on one side and the 2 gen. on the other side. That's just a suggestion though......

Bruce is correct ..i am goin to stake off a spot on thursday night if i can, friday morning at the latest ..i would prefer to be right near the road so that i can have a little extra room so i can open my doors, i will probally have a big tent to go over my car also that day. it just depends on how i feel.....i am not trying to be picky but i have spent a **** load of money over the past several months and would like to be in a spot where i can A. watch my car from the tent and B attract some traffic...please dont think i am only there for the show but i refuse to go home for the third straight year without making it to the winners circle. ....but mostly i am there to meet everyone and have a good time

Some folks are there as early as Thursday Morning getting a spot. We are talking about a field with probably 5,000 - 8,000 cars overall. Last year there were about 25 Intrepids and 25 300M cars in atendance. Of those 50 about 45 were members of one of the two clubs. Sadly 2 of the top three Intrepids places went to non-club members. We need to make sure we ALL vote this year.

Of course. But within THAT area it is first come first serve.

I agree...I was too mad when I heard that 2 non-members won out against the club. My spot last year was horrible...I was next to a Caravan. LOL :)

yeah, that's what i meant, when you get to the area it's first come first serve

gorm:
at least you got a spot on the grass, mine was the car on the road between the treps and the jeeps, between 11:00am and 4ish pm, granted that was my fault for not getting up early enough :icon_cry:
