I find it offensive for ANYONE to try to save ANY space for someone who isn't there yet. I was at the Flagstaff rally in 1991. I arrived Wednesday evening and, when I thought I'd found a camping spot, I was informed that "All these spots are reserved for the Detroit Touring Club" and at the next nice spot, "All these are reserved for the Chicago club," etc. I finally pitched my tent away from everyone, far from where campfires were permitted. After my experience there, I wanted nothing to do with BMWMOA rallys and didn't attend one until Rhinebeck in 1999. The rule should be hard and fast, NO SAVING SPACES FOR ANYONE! Anyone who attempts to save a space should first be asked to remove the tape, etc., and if (s)he persists, should be escorted from the camping area. There should be NO reserved areas except for special needs (cpap, etc.) or the Sherpa Mayberry area. That's my $.02.
