While I think it will be cool as hell for the people watching, I forsee it causing issue.

The big problem I see happening is mass chaos at the fiargrounds. Friends don't all drive the same color cars, so people will be driving like crazies trying to park with their friends once they get in the gate. And that could get ugly in the small confines of the space we have to park.


And a personal preference: please put silver cars at the front of the caravan :lol: I don't want to deal with red lights and stuff even if we have a escort, and I want to park by the front of the group this year. Being parked at the back of the group and on the hill sucked!

There's also another portion to this, it will cause people to interact with each other that normally wouldn't.

True.

However, I think Dump Crew NEEDS to park together. Can I go in Friday and rope off a section? If I do will anybody move my stuff? :lol:

Well don't tell Brinton but I'm planning on dropping (and staking in) my tent this year on Thursday.

I say just drop your tent in on Friday and you'll have no problem :thumbup:

I feel Dump crew needs special concideration because if the spot we are trying to pull into might get us stuck well thats no good for anyone :p

I see your point, I will leave that to you guys to find a spot sometime before Saturday and mark it out with tents or whatever.

It's all about addition and not division of the group.

Yes if we said 'only cars below X" ground to fender can park here' I could see that causing issue, but that's not I was proposing (I just meant park the dumped members from FL, GA, MD, MI, NH, etc together..and I mean only the ones who are friends from last year. I'm not trying to rope in all the dumped cars, just the FLF/Dump Crew).

Or, let's go total elitist and have an FLF-only parking section :lol: I have a feeling Matti s going to make his own little slammed sedan crew section.




We'll just have to hash it out when we get there I suppose. Whatever happens, happens :thumbup:

The only problem with your suggestion Ken is I am not planning to lug a pop-up tent all the way up there to just save a spot.

Well, JUST the dumped cars from certain areas excluding others would be seen as MORE elitist.

Everyone wants to park next to someone they know, hell i wouldn't mind parking next to you, Ken, Jeremy, and a ton of other people. But honestly this year I think that most people will be hanging out under the large tent since we have decided just to use that as a central gathering place and not to put any cars under it. So I'll park wherever I need to, as long as my **** won't get snatched because I'm bringing some stuff to put on display. :lol:

Friday night we should find random spots that would work for a dumped car and mark those with cheap orange cones (like for soccer practice). Saturday morning we make an announcement to the roll-in that those spots are marked for dumped cars to ensure they won't get stuck. And we make sure all those spots are not all clumped together.

I think making an announcement like that at the roll-in would lead to an understanding why it was done, especially if we mention that there are spots in different places and not all in one area.

First off I did know this section wasnt available to everyone lol

Second, yea I understand not wanting to be all Elitist like. Theres noone I know going with a Sedan that I really care about parking next too, so like Jason as long as Im somewhere where my ****s safe and next to someone respectfull (aka not like the dbag kids out of CT from the Uconn show leaning against my car and sitting on it with their studded belts)

Color should be pretty cool to see from the general public although from the people inline they may not want to follow lol

I mean hell last year Dumpcrew went to the gas station to poop instead of staying in line LOL

Tarps are what works best, I know I'll pitch a cone if I have too but if someone stakes down a tarp I'll leave it.

Plus also incase the inevitable "R"-word happens on Thursday or Friday (as it ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS does) then you have a dry-ish spot
