My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
A woman I spoke with as we were leaving, asked if that location was OK. I said it seemed pretty good. She indicated that they like to put groups back in the same place whenever possible. So, no guarantees. But likely to be there again.

Not sure I'm going to make it. That's pretty close to our fall get-together, which is going to be a full week-long trip for me. Finances and logistics get complicated when that happens.

"220, 221, whatever it takes."
I looked at getting a spot in your campground. I’m still worried if the road ranger would get in an out OK. The reason I mention it is it was $44 a night, and it looked like they only had one or two spaces left, so you may want to move quickly.
You might be able to leave the trailer at the Fairgrounds. If not, the campground has a trailer parking area at the entrance.
Tomorrow is payday so I plan to register.
Reminder if you register, select "Non-Judged Showfield" on Carlisle's site and in the drop-down for clubs scroll down and select The Ranger Station.

Yeah, why pay for the judging when we can provide that for free?!

What space are you in? I was going to try to get one of the electric spaces on the corner because they're flat.

It's 1,400 mikes one way for me.

I'll be in Kentucky for our gathering in September, and then I'll head up to Ohio for a while when I leave there.

I'll be visiting my mom up near Cleveland, my daughter down by East Liverpool, and my son that's not far from her in Beaver PA.

It's too far to go and then turn around and head to Kentucky a month later, but I'm not oppossed to meeting up with people when I'm up in Ohio and PA.

You'll be right in the area that Johnny and I live when you are in East Liverpool and Beaver. Depending on timing, we might be able to get together for a bit.

Give us a shout when you're in the area. I live in the next town across the river from Beaver.
I will be out of town on Sept. 27-28.
