So, bad news is that I won't be competing. I agreed to judge the event but will look to see some of these legends before I step into closed sessions.

Good luck to all...I know it's going to be a great competition!

When did arriving on Thursday become an option? Had I known we would have been there with our generator. Could have taken yesterday off and been out there at noon today.

Website said nothing about early arrivals. Said they'd be open at 8 am tomorrow.

Been waiting 2 years to get back....it'd be nice to have the same info as other teams?
Do we need to know a secret handshake or something?

I asked. We did it two years ago.

Default Sorry RonL

Having been through too many "exceptions" at comps, you should NOT need to ask if you can set up earlier than the posted times. EVERY paying entrant should be informed of that, perhaps with a time restriction.

As of now, it's just total BS . . . Please define who's so much more "special".

If everyone is not notified of the opportunity to arrive when it bests suits their schedule, it automatically creates an unfair advantage and a sense of entitlement.

I don't think its an unfair advantage or any sense of entitlement. All it takes is to ask. I do it at just about every contest. I'd rather get my rig in before the cluster starts in the morning. East peasy

Good to know. Wish they'd posted that possibility on the barn burner site. It said check in was this am.

See u when we get through traffic.

I'm sorry that you feel that way. I certainly don't feel entitled. When I saw the site layout that Kathy sent out a couple of weeks ago I figured that it would be tight getting parked with the trailer so I asked it it was possible to drop off on Thursday night. It's really that simple. No special treatment or entitlement involved.

Just would have been nicer had it been posted. As I said, had we known we'd be set up as well.

Missed a couple years but didn't recall being able to do this in the past. But then again, early set up of the pop up wouldn't have been an option.
Its all good....maybe we'll see you on 294 this morning. :-).

You guys crack me up. If you ever need something from me it is best to ask. The organizers can not guess every possible scenario. I bet they have actual day jobs.

They didn't have it listed. When I actually emailed Kathy, she didn't have a clue what I was talking about (rookie organized) and had to check. I explained that is how I usually did it in the past and she said OK. The only year that I didn't drop off and/or stay for the night was last yesrand I pulled in at 7:30 am on friday so I could pull my RV in without getting blocked
