:lol: I remember that guy. As soon as he opened his mouth I just walked in the opposite direction as quickly as possible.
Oh crap - what will I do if he objects to my parking my Cossie with the Merks then :lol: :lol:

Wuss.... :haha

As for Wilky... I'm afraid you'll be instructed to hand over the keys, title and registration to the ummm, parking attendant.

Sincerely,

The Parking Attendant :twisted:

He was pretty determined that was his parking spot. No need for me to have to listen to him - thats why the MCA head honcho's get paid all the big bucks to deal with guys like that - I know you guys are just rolling in all those $20 membership dues we send in faithfully. :lol:

Ray, I know a few Merkur guys who are camping there so you will be in good company. They hang out at the hotel with the rest of us until late then head over to the showfield to sleep.

Brad can add further insight to the parking spots alloted, but I'm guessing they use the # of pre-registered and then add a bit of breathing room on top of that #. However an event like last year with 100+ cars not pre-reistered you can see why we quickly outgrew our space 8)

No, you don't. You just roll in on Friday evening, hand $20 to one of the firemen running the campground, and go on in. There were TONS of spots available last year.

Whoa... I wonder if I should drive the old Jayco van-camper. :lol:
