    Track Day Camping

    After shameless begging and talking to several different people, I have been unable to get onsite camping made available for those who want to do the track day.
    I am now in negotiations with another campground that is within 10 miles of Mid Ohio to see if I can secure a special rate for Wednesday night.

    So those who wish to camp prior to the Track day, and those who want to stay near The rally, (about an hour away) can have a place to pitch their tents Wednesday.

    update for camping

    OK, here is the scoop on camping for those who want to camp near the track for the track day, and for those coming in to the rally from the east.

    I got a special group rate from Yogi Bear's Jellystone park.
    The address is :
    6500 Black Rd
    Belleville, OH 44183
    Phone 419-886-2267

    I told them there would be upwards of 70 people coming from the BMWMOA and we would be staying Wednesday night. they have promised to rope off a special area for MOA members and charge a special rate of 7.00 per rider.

    Normally a night of camping is 25.00.

    If possible, please let me know how many will be interested in staying there so I an confirm to them we will have a good group and can really secure this special rate.

    Let me know if you need directions and I will supply them.

    I checked with the Sportbike track time and she said that we should go in at gate #3 (registration gate) and then she should be set up in front of garage #7. I can't wait.

    Thumbs up I'm in

    I'll be camping the night before the track day. I plan to be in the area by ~1800.

    See you then--

    Camping

    Seems pretty sad that MOA did not negotiate an eraly bird rate for those of us wanting to come in early to participate in the ERC or other activities that are part of the rally on Tuesday or Wednesday. But then they picked Lima (I am from Ohio so I think I can say this).
    Count me in and maybe my brother. Will let you know but it will be fun having a smaller group prior to the big one.

    As I remember last year some folks needed to be there first thing Thurs for the ERC and were told if they wanted to camp Wed nite they had to volunteer. Maybe the rally should officially start after dinner the night before and not first thing in the AM. I know I wasn't turned away Wed nite in Trenton, ON when I arrived after dark looking for a place to camp. Guess that was just Canadian hospitality.

    Made reservations yesterday at the campgrounds. For a full hook up pull through it is $33. We will be there around 6pm. We will be in a Thor Toy Hauler with a green Silverado pulling. See you all there.

    It looks like the plans have changed and I will now be camping at the rally site on Wed. night and heading to Mid-Ohio early Thursday morning.

    I tried to get a group rate with them, and they told me they dont have the space for a large group to camp. If you can get in that is a good thing, but They told me they couldnt accomodate more than 10 tents.
