    Territory

    What is with some of these clubs, groups or others that arrive early and stake out the best territory with yellow tape and do not allow anyone to camp within?? This is not in the best spirit of Rallying in my opinion.
    I talked with a couple who happened to set up a little too close to the Yankee Beemers conclave and were told to move somewhere else. They were told if they didn't, to not be surprised if they had food spilled on them. That is sure a nice way to start out the weekend.
    I'd like to hear from some of the Yankee Beemers for an answer.
    I realize my information is second hand.

    The Yankee Beemers, the Airheads and the BMW Riders of Baltimore Washingtion Area all had made arrangements to either bring trailers or rent tents at the National.

    The Yankee Beemers donated the use of their equipment to support and host the BMW MOA Foundations Camp Charleston event which is why they were set up early. There was one area on the campus marked with caution tape because the university was working in a manhole. The YB's did have a party Friday evening where free beer was served, to comply with beverage control policies there was some tape up during their party.

    To the best of my knowledge none of the three groups (Airheads, YB's and BMWBMW) ever told folks that they could not camp with them. I do know that the YB's try to make sure that everyone who camps close understands that there tends to be lots of noise late (party) and early (coffee).

    Thanks

    Thanks for the favor of a reply.
    I can easily see how misunderstandings can occur.

    The Yankee Beemers can tend to be a little, um, enthusiastic.

    Some bikes. Some with motors, some without.
