    Bob

    The mail in rally preg reg form has a space to check if you will be “dry” RV camping.

    Go to the rally page on the BMWRA website [url]http://www.bmwra.org/rally/[/url]

    and click on “Email the BMW RA Rally Coordinator”

    That should get you the info that you need.

    It’s NEVER too late to volunteer.

    Send your prefered dates and times to the email on the volunteer page for the rally.

    Or show up at the rally and add your names at information central.

    We’ll still issue a ticket. We’ll have these marked on the spreadsheet and we’ll not pay for their pass. They will still have to fill out the info for awards.

    I think we’ll only have around ten of these folks total.

    This is great because Tanya and I have season passes.

    BUT, I thought we were going to use the number on the Biltmore badge for
    door prises and other awards. How will this work?????

    [QUOTE=oilhead05rt ยป]I’m not familiar with “restroom/shower trailers” but I assume they will be clean and with hot water.[/QUOTE]

    These are shower stall/dressing room booths mounted on flatbed trailers with built in water tanks generator and source of heat. They are commercially available in limited numbers and are used most often in the western US for large forest fires to support the hundreds of firefighters called in to a wilderness area to fight the fires. They have been used ar BMW rallies in the past and are great.

    They will be as clean as the people who use them in front of you [And BMW people are always considerate, aren’t we?] ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜‰ ๐Ÿ˜€

    [QUOTE=Bicyclist ยป]You’re right, it isn’t cheap! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ Got any recommendations for someplace with safe parking downtown that is a bit more reasonable?

    George[/QUOTE]

    Nothing right downtown cheep but a little less expensive is the:

    Extended Stay Hotel | Rate $62.99 to $72.99 |
    Quality Inn & Suites Biltmore South | Rate $70 |
    Sleep Inn Biltmore | Rate $70 | Located one block from Biltmore Estate entrance

    These are all good values and clean. I have stayed in the Quality inn and have reservations for the Sleep Inn. The extended stay is closest to the dawntown area, about half way between downtown and biltmore.

    Anton is right. They have to keep the gate open for Inn guests, so we will have access after the house closes. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Just have to show your arm band to the guards. :rolleyes:

    There are VERY few electrical hookups.
    if you have a medical need for electricity, you might want to email the rally chair direct. :confused:
