The numbers are down from last year but not by much. It is going to be a great event!
Thanks

Craig,

No the gates do not close at 10:00 p.m. but it may be difficult to get set up after that time. They are welcome to come later, if they need to. It will just be easier to get set up prior to that.

Thanks
Marti

Just  looking out for the late comers here.....


Is there more light in the sky at 9:30 pm than 10:30 pm, in Nelson County ???  Or will it be dark, just like @ 8:00 pm ?   ;D







Don't be mad!   :o

Craig,
Keep it up and you will take Big Daddy's place.

Yes, the light is the same at 8:00 and 10:00 but I was thinking of disturbing folks if they were trying to sleep if they were setting up really late, like after midnight, which is what it would be if they showed up much later than 10:00 to set up.

Ya Craig, don't wake me up trying to set up after dark.  It's rude.   ;D

Looking forward to this! I do have a question regarding camping and such, we will be trailering the Jeep in, will we have to park the trailer elsewere or will we be able to keep it attatched to the truck at the camp site? Reason being, we have a camper on the truck, and our grill is attatched to the trailer  ;D (interesting set up actually)  This will make a difference in what we bring to eat, I would much rather cook on my grill than my camp stove....

And is it too late to buy an additional meal ticket? The registration check I sent in Dec just cleared the bank last week. Was waiting for that before I bought the extra ticket just incase something went wrong with the registration.
Thanks!
Michelle

Yes, you can have a fire as long as it is a firepot and off the ground.

Thanks

Yea but if you use the NOAA version you have to do it in the voice they use.
