With all of the Jack talk and then getting our bung drawn I feel like I have been neglecting the American Royal. Got our packet in the mail today with our parking passes and wristbands. I have to admit it made be a bit excited. Look forward to seeing everyone and travel safe!

Man. I wish I had the time and money to go back this year. Last year was something that I never would have imagined.

I kind of wish my video skills were a year advanced but I think these shots tell the AR story well:

Looks like we are reversing rolls this year. I am glad we got moved over to lot B but it just won't be the same this year. It was nice being next to the Ice shot luge last year. I guess when you win a GC and get to do the invite you have to sacrifice a little partying.:sick:

Quick question for you AR veterans. Do I need to be concerned with putting up ropes or something around my site? I have heard storys of folks wandering in, messing with cookers, etc. Not other teams...just general folks enjoying a few drinks.

KC_Bobby
09-17-2010, 03:45 PM
Kinda depends on location, but mostly I'd say some fencing or rope is a good idea. Many teams use orange construction fence or yellow caution tape.

This is from accuweather.com. The only difference the local weather stations say is that Sat & Sun will be highs in the 60s with lows in the upper 40s. Bring the blankets!

Perfect fall/BBQ weather. Lets hope it doesn't change between now and then.

We are leaving in the morning! been a crazy week prepping for the trip. 5 solid days getting trailer ready and im bushed.

now we see if we can get the pictures of welcome signs this time around. Scotts allteady making rules for the 1300 mile road trip. No belting out show tunes and no farting with the windows closed.

Note to self: Wife must avoid site 918, and my balding Italian Grandma Phil.:shock:

Edit: Phil, if you change my ringtone to some really obnoxious show tune I could call at irregular intervals without violating the edicts from the Family Truckster driver.

Does anyone know if the fire permits on the tents over 200 sq ft are strictly enforced?

Pretty much. In the past some folks have been able to agree to mail a check. I've heard second hand stories that, that approach didn't fly in recent years. Others may be able to offer more accurate firsthand experience. Life is a lot easier with a 10x20, or multiple smaller canopies.

Yes, the KCFD is in full effect (or is that affect) during the event - and for good cause. With the many different fires, straw and vehicles so close to each other, the FD is doing due diligence.

Two years ago the team next to me had teenagers throwing straw on an open fire pit and getting flames well over 10' high near what I can only estimate was 150 bales. I called security - things could have gotten really ugly really fast.

We are getting a couple of really awesome rooms. Full amenities, deluxe accomodations entertainment nightly, International attractions, playsite, plus access to BBQ`s and local shopping. Just down the road from the Royal. We are bringing the owners Crown Royal, Rum and some cigars. I really think we are getting the better end of the deal.

Don't think they will shut gates all night, so you could get there anytime and I'm sure you could stay there, but you won't have power.

Hello All,
I posted about the fire permit. I talked to them today they said they will not accept cash on site but they will take a check.

Another question: Is the Price Chopper Tent going to be there? I didnt see it on the map.

Thanks,
Becky

I spoke with the gentleman that runs the Price Chopper tent, NEGATIVE. No Price Chopper tent this year.

Sam's does not carry parsley or green leaf normally. It can be special ordered if you talk nice and develope a relationship with the store manager. STRICTLY plutonic.

This is my first royal go around and will be pulling in Friday morning. this may sound stupid but what entrance do we come in at? The map they have on arbbq.com drives me nuts as it doesn't sit north and south like it should. Will we pull in gate A? Also I don't have room on my site to leave my truck, so I need to take it out to the liberty lot, is this common or a pain in the a$$?

Jorge
09-29-2010, 09:22 AM
Being in Lot B I've always used the gate at the end of Wyoming. If you are in lot A then gate A may work better for you. You should have a contact # in your packet where you can get the official answer.

Your vehicle has to be out by 3 PM on Friday. There is usually a little shuttle running from the Liberty lot back to the grounds. It's not that much of a hassle.

Dropping off our trailer tonight! Then back home to continue chicken prep and pack coolers.

I'll be back out there Thursday after work for the duration.

The only work left is what my wife is currently finishing up... trimming her ribs! All the other meat for both comps is trimmed and buried in ice, van and smoker trailer loaded and ready to pull out in the morning. I gotta get some things done at work for about four or five hours then off to the Royal around lunch time! I'm finally excited for it!

The clock won't be able to move fast enough for me tomorrow - I'm working all day. I just finished packing, the trailer is on site. If anyone's around tomorrow evening, I could use a hand getting the smokers out so I can make room to sleep.
