Can anyone direct me to an RV spot that is close to the activities at SWC? I need a spot that is not dirt/gravel and can accomidate a 38' truck and trailer ( not mine, my parents are looking to meet me there) Thanks for any and all help. PS if possible I would like to be as far away from Shrederman as possible. I've heard rumors of his late night parties and guitar playing. my parents wouldn't approve... Thanks

I'm looking for a place w/ hook ups if possible... You don't want THIS outfit on any of your
grass... it would sink right up to the axels... It's for my retired parents with nothing better to do than drive around the country & play golf... they would be there a week or so before the festivities. I'm just trying to help them out with a reserved spot. Thanks... I'll also check w/AAA for any ideas. They tow a car as well so a short drive to the field would be fine

The spots at the field would handle there rig. There are spots toward the back that are gravel. So they could camp on site. And Schrederman is a no show this year so your safe.

Please see first post for updated information on group rates for local hotels.

Also, shirt sales will be halted on the 4th of February. You can buy a shirt and not enter if you choose. But why? Come on out and enjoy the beautiful weather we have ordered

There will be plenty of people to time for you at the event. Only reason you would put down a timer is so they don't put you and your timer in the same flight group.
