Just got our team pack in the mail:-D We are in space 945 stop by and say hi. This is our first time and we can't wait. We can pre-order ribs & butts from Farmland Foods. Any one have any experience do that? Or should I just bring it since I'm bring my brisket & chicken anyway

Thanks,
Tom

We got our packet today as well........Looks like we got a fair share of reading to do!
This will be our first year as well........if they don't change the location numbering on the map, I think we may have a pretty good space (watch it be one that all the water runs to if it rains...LOL)
We are in site 813..........Miller Lite products only.....and maybe a margarita or 4.....
Look for the Brethren banner.....see you there!

Did anyone's packet include a map? I have last year's but they seem to always be a little different from year to year.

Holy cow ... anyone read the sheet dealing with the fire codes?

- 200 sq feet (or more) tents and 400 sq feet canopies require fire permits
- No smoking signs should be posted in all tents, canopies and concession stands
- Hay storage must be a minimum of 20 feet from all tents and canopies
- Automotive parking must be a minimum of 20 feet from all tents and canopies
- Generators a minimum of 20 feet from all tents and canopies
- The minimum distance between tents should be no loess than 10 feet.

WTF? So everyone needs to set canopy/tents up 5 feet away from the lines and I need a permit to put up my carport if I drop the sides? Damn neer gotta get a G spot in order to comply if you have a tent or canopy.


Good luck enforcing that.

Yeah, these are pretty stiff rules. I think they are the same as last year though. I see that Don is selling his pit. What did he buy, an FE?

Hi John, Don't think we've met, we will. I'm your new neighbor in 917. There goes the neighborhood :-D I don't think anyone will bother your stuff from my camp, unless one of the boondoggle boys stops by.:wink:

Getting excited, only a few more weeks. We'll be in Dubuque at the Throwdown this week too.

We will be moving to 919. Hope no one steals my brisket.

Don't worry about all the fire code rules. The only one that they are interested in enforcing is the one for the $75.00 permit. Thanks Kansas City for making us feel welcome. If I sound a little bitter, it's because I AM!

When they come around looking for their money, DON'T PAY WITH CASH!
Tell them to leave you a form & you'll be happy to send them a check on Monday. They tend to lose intrest after they find out they're not getting extortion money.

I was told this only applied to the tents that you purchased from the on site rental company (the ones that they put up and took down for you). I may be wrong, but in four years I have never paid for a permit and used a 10X20 carport each year.

I don't think I'll be able to see it from the compound at 928, to keep an eye on it for you.

Just look at his Avatar... that is what I would bring...

FWIW for Plowboy.... It's not the brisket... I would worry more aobut the party until 3:00 am and then waking up and finding that they stole your entire site... then having to deal with the wonks that run the Royal... Oh, and then them blaming you for not ratting them out to the cops for how loud their party was... And not expect the party to come over and flip your RV...

Other than that. It's a great spot. Except if it rains, as the spot next to you is a drain... And guess where all the grey water will be flowing??? :eek:

Hey Brett - Someone mentioned Construction fencing - that orange stuff you see at all the road construction around here. Think you can get it at home depot. For the Jiffy John have Andy bring his spider. Those things are notorious for spinning their webs across the seat and sinking their fangs into anything that hangs down into it. As for your cooker... I'm at a loss. We're just hoping our neighbors food smells better and attracts the passers by. See ya in WV.

Put a lock on the john. In your spot, you should be fine without the fencing, but that is up to you. We didn't use any last year in that spot. You'll love it. You'll be in one of the most quiet spots at the Royal. We only moved because we wanted to get two trailers in our spot. Otherwise, it was a great spot.

No info for us yet. FINALLY got our invitational form returned today. Had a couple of huge questions that took two days to get a live person at the Royal to answer. I imagine they already have us mapped out as well. Long story short, we got Lee signed on as chief cook for the open and me for the invitational. I was assuming he was listed as chief cook at Warrensburg and thus would be for the Royal as well but after entering us with Lee as chief cook in the open, the invitational stuff came to me. I have NO idea how that happened.

Not to hijack this thread but its way too busy for a country bumkin like me to just even think about all the confusion at the Royal.

Will throw a bash at our place for the neighbors and friends.

I got our packet but before I could get it from the mailbox someone stuck an IED (Improvised Explosive Device, M-80, 1/4 stick, whatever) in our mailbaox and blew it and our packet to shreds. :icon_pissed I guess that is payback from when I was a kid. :icon_devil
