Anyone going? Has anyone been before. This is our first time. Any suggestions?

We're going....

It's a fun contest, but make sure you arrive before the festival opens to the public. They will not let you drive in once the gates are open. Huge crowds...

lunchmeat will be there.

Merrimac is a fun one. Big festival, lotsa stuff going on, and it is a qualifier for Jack.

Like Ted said, they WILL NOT let you in once those gates open, unless you walk your stuff in. It doesn't matter you miss the load-in window by 2 minutes, you won't get in... trust me on that.

If you're bringing kids, bring money. There is a ton of things for them to do/eat/buy. Personally, I spend ALL my money at Dr. Gonzo's. Good stuff there.

Also, bring your galoshes, just in case, and sunblock. Merrimac has had everything from heavy rain and DEEP mud to 100+ temps.

Would they be able to handle a rv that needs 40' of space?

HUGE CONGRATS on your first GC Mike and Kris! That gets you to Tennessee!!!!
Ye-HA!
A 'wicked good' time, despite the rain, cold and mud. Great event, people were still coming in at 2p.m. Sunday, even with the constant drizzle.

They raised the prize money, went out to 5th on both days I think, and the trophies were great too! They really did a nice job in working to make this year better in that respect. I applaud the efforts.

I also applaud the retirement if Joe Dionne. (maybe he will go to MC school now) :>

That guy is the worst....almost made me glad I didn't get any calls to the stage. Well, maybe not....

But Mike and Kris are the best! Was a great moment when they won.
