Last year because of the weather, CAMAROCROSS and drag finals happened at the same time. This year they want to get CAMAROCROSS finals done first so we can fill the stands to watch the drag finals.

Thanks for posting the schedule.

I would like to discuss the opening day and setup on Friday on behalf of all trailer attendees (not that there were many, but still).
There needs to be some improvements made from prior years.
Please direct me to whom I should speak to.

Thank you
Tim
Send me a PM with your ideas.

Has any group reservations been made at any of the surrounding hotels? I noticed the Meet & Greet at the Springhill...are they hosting/offering a group discount?

There is not one specific host hotel. Here is a link to all the hotels that are in the area.

Since Vendor's trailers for their displays are left at track, is the drag strip area where parking is secured/locked up up at night like Indy was? I'm assuming so, but as in work "assumption is the mother of f*** up's". So best to ask.

I would rather leave my truck/trailer there -vs- at the hotel area.

Thanks

Tim

HRD_WRK nailing it. Good post. I'd love to drop a trailer at the track Thursday night or at least Friday. 28'.

It is hard to say, but based on the white truck in the VIP parking lot it looks like it would comfortably fit 16 of those wide and 4 deep.

Yes, this is my home track and very familiar with the layout. The picture is old and I'll take it down as it probably brings up more issues than are really necessary and it will probably change.

The grassy areas are perfect for any size trailer or truck. At the end of the grandstands along the 1/4 mile track is motor home and 18 wheeler parking so plenty of room. The boxed out area for trailers easily holds 2 rows of regular size trailers and is right next to the staging lanes which we will definitely not be using much of except for traffic in and out.

I have no problem with anyone starting a trailer thread and keeping track of the count for us.

There is a fence that separates the entrance gate from the lanes, no issues as far as accessing the lanes, where they are setting up the autocross track depends where they can park those of us with trailers, also where the car show will be, the "VIP" lot is for employees and people attending an event in the tower club. Any other questions? This track is a 2nd home to me.

Thanks mlee, the corral at the end would be a good deal if we don't have too many trailers coming

You actually raise a good point. We rarely use more than a couple of staging lanes, so maybe the larger trailers can pit in the outside three lanes (closest to the road).

That was the plan. It was just an easy place to keep them lined up and super close the staging.

This area is also where they typically park the really large ones.

Keep them clean

We had contemplated doing a pre-pay through the store site to help speed things up and we'd hand out wrist bands to those as they pull through the front gates as ID's were presented for wrist band pick up. However, that could end up being more time consuming than simply taking cash/card. The plan is to have two lines entering the gates and yes, I know the feeling of sitting there in line for a LONG period of time trying to get everyone in those gates. Valdosta was a pretty big learning experience for us and we don't want a couple hours to pass just trying to get everyone in.

I'll clarify with Mike on this, but I'd like at least 4 people (two per line) collecting payment as people come in (and four more for signatures on liability waivers). Moving people in through those gates is a priority. We want to get it done as quickly and efficiently as possible.

It would be certainly preferred to be able to park on hard surface in lieu of grass for using jacks , changing wheels, and inclement weather (NOT fun hanging out on sandy mud). Looks like there should be extra room on various cement areas.

We'll get you a trailer count if possible as it gets closer.

We'll assume for now someone will be working on responses for early arrivals to the track, early trailer drop, and leeway on early entry.
Im sure many of us have spent Long times for initial event entry. This will be the most frustrating item to start the Cfest experience. There should be at least two groups taking in money at the gate.

Thanks again.
There is not fencing on both sides of the staging lanes. It's wide open on the track side. The grass areas are also perfect for parking on and it is very hard ground. This doesn't mean you have to jack cars in the grass, if you just put the tow vehicle part off the concrete to save room. Plenty of concrete for pits behind the trailer if this method is needed.

I will say one of the cool fest memories I have is hanging out in line with 300 other Camaros. Don't think anyone was upset at all, however as TAG said we are taking measures to ensure this isn't the case at RPR.

I had thought of suggesting pre pay.
- this is year 5, yes we have discussed this
it could work if the bands were handed out at the meetngreet hotel thursday night. Not everyone would be able to do it, but it would speed things up at the gate. - Yes, we are all over this
not sure if id seen it, but if its not a cash only entry-that slows things down too. - Yes, this will be strongly encouraged, but not mandatory
it could be done via pre pay or by pay at the hotel(easier so no 'lookup table needed). Hotel will not be handling any of this. There are many of them
The waiver form could be signed prior to receiving the band.
then at the gate, those with bands get in one line and drive thru with quick stop to show security their band (same as what then happens on saturday for returning paid participants). Yes, way ahead of you on this one

Mike
please draw lines where all the secured fencing is.
(300 cars is cool, but could take 1.5+hrs at a quick 20 sec per. I wouldn't recommend sleeping in late. )

Thanks
Thousands will be attending NHRA Spring Natls just a few days before the fest. Yes lines will be long, but they will move quickly. Not the first rodeo out there. We spend the entire day before setting things up to run smoothly and we have plenty of volunteers to help. Tks for the ideas.

ive had to explain this Normal long wait occurrence this past year after a event to several that were so upset that they ended up leaving and not participating. Weve all seen some of those reasons be controllable and uncontrollable (ie credit card reader not working well-could of had a backup). Just adding another outside view.

Just trying to help to increase others Fest experience ( I'll just enjoy being in Texas first time and not working).

See y'all there.
I have a feeling you'll have your wristband Thursday night and ready to bypass any line.
