Default Sturgis

Hello all,
I have a good chance of vending in Sturgis at the rally. I have done some small vending jobs and I am in no way thinking this is even remotely similar. I am asking if any of you all have vended there? What can we expect to take for food quantities? How much help might be needed? What type of things can I expect. I believe we will be just outside of town on the main drag.
I know this is a huge job but it sounds like an awful lot of fun and a great experience.
Any help, tips, and suggestions would be appreciated,
Thanks,
Joe

A buddy of mine took this photo at the Playboy mansion in SoCal at a charity fundraiser for Parkinson's Disease. He also sponsors my wife & I for our Team In training cancer functions (marathons and century bike rides to raise money for cancer victims).

I think this thread may need to be moved to the wood pile after that photo. OOPS. Sorry!

Make sure you have your canopies, I don't know how hot it will be, but believe me they are worth it.

I will have a 30' trailer with an FE500. A lot of the meat will be pre cooked and vacuum sealed. We will probably rent a refrigerated truck also.
