PARTICIPANT  PARKING
Where you will be parking  
Music must be kept at a level appropriate to respect the others around you.
We park them as they come in the gate, if you want to park with your friends, then you need to arrive with your friends. It's first come first park. There is a reason for this.. see FAQ
More questions about organizing cars, classes, etc in FAQ
When you arrive at the gate tell them you want to go to the car corral and they will direct you all the way around the track to the correct section.
 
TENT SPACES
  • NEW as of 2012 -Due to the shortage of space - All tents “sun shelters” are to be placed behind your car (not beside the car). We tried this in 2012 and it worked very well. Almost everyone co-operated.
  • If you would like to put your tent beside your car, you need to purchase a tag for your tent. You can do so in advance by phone. 519-342-1284
 
WELCOME PACKAGE– goodie bag, plaque
