Default American Royal Open questions

I was just on the AR webpage and I admit that I'm a bit overwhelmed at the number of decisions that I will need to make. I have no idea about lot spaces and all that jazz. For those of you who have been there - is there anything you can tell me to help me fill out these forms? Do I really need to hire a porta potty? Should I be specific about which lot I want? Why would I want straw bales? etc. Thanks in advance

I would defiantly suggest a porta-potty. Its always clean and nobody else can use it, You should see what the public ones look like after Friday night. If this is your first time there you probably wont have much of a choice of lot or spot for that matter. I would stay away from the straw, some people use it to line there spots but the stuff gets everywhere and our neighbors caught on fire last year and the fire department had to come put it out.

Yes, get a port-a-let. We got one last year and was glad we had it. If you want an
experience, stay on the darkside, otherwise I would stay closer to kemper.
Straw bales are to keep the flow of people and drunks from entering your site. They also start picking up the water, urine, vomit and what ever else is flowing down the lot.
Good luck on your search.

Don't forget a lock for your port-o-pisser. If not kept locked up, passer-byers will use it.

Go with the porta-pot, bring a lock. Get some straw to block off your site, unless you will have enough stuff to do it yourself.

It's not as bad as some of the stories that you will probably hear, but it can be a challenge on Friday night.

It's hiding in the back. I'll give it a cleaning and move it back out front in a day or two.

also, if you have a large canopy (I'm not sure, but I THINK bigger than 12x12) you will be forced to buy a permit from the fire department (or take it down).

IMHO, Port-o-poty is a MUST unless you have a rig with a bathroom, and holding tanks big enough for 4 days.

After hearing your story I'm bringing my Hank Aaron wooden baseball bat as well!

I'm not 100% sure, but I believe it's larger then 10x20.

Rules said over 200 Square foot needs an inspection and permit.
