If we get 50 teams that would probably be the limit. Last year we had like 47 teams I think

For those that haven't been there before this is a large park with a nice lake and plenty for the family. Fishing, kayak rentals. There is a family festival going on at the same time with rides for the kids, games a craft fair....all free! Plenty of food vendors.
Plenty of parking and always a good time.
Oh there's a car show Saturday as we'll TS a great cause as well. Liberty USO does soo much locally for the troops.

Their are a lot of hotels within 5 miles of the grounds. You just need to decide your budget. The comfort inn on 13 is close and clean and if your coming from NY it's right by the turnpike exit to the comp

Let me make a few phone calls tomorrow and see if I can get a special rate.
One of the local hotels sponsored the event last year.

39 teams registered so far!

I'm working on a special rate with the ramada inn which is right at the turnpike exit. I will have details ASAP and update.

Anyone needing a room can get a reduced rate from the ramada inn. Just a few miles from the park and right at the entrance/exit of turnpike.

The room rate will be 109$ at the ramada for those needing a room.

We have 50 teams, I'm going down to the park to see if we can squeeze in a few more. We have plenty of space providing water and electric becomes a problem.

FYI, for us old farts the AARP rate is even better!

No worries you're still there. I don't think it was ever alphabetical he just lists them as he receives them.

The guy that sells the shirts isn't vending this year but I did get some extras so let me know what you need

The park has plenty of room the problem is power and water distribution. Judges become a problem as well.
I'm trying my best to accommodate everyone.
