    Camping At CPX

    About half of the group going with me is going to go for the CPX camping - We will need space for at least 4 pretty good sized tents -

    I will not be arriving until late Afternoon Friday and would like to try and camp relatively near some AOers I can finally put names to faces with until the alcohol kicks in.

    Can someone flag off 4-6 good sized sites for my crew?

    Can you park near your camp site or are all vehicles sent to the parking lot?

    Thanks for any assistance

    Assuming a Tent + personal space area to be roughly 10X10 I will try and keep a running tally based on replies to this post to how big a chunk of real-estate we need-

    StygShore - 6 tents 1 raised fire ring/pit
    BTAutoMag - 2 tents
    Skipdogg - 2 tents
    Andrum85 - 1 Tent 1 Pop Up Canopy
    BBotts77 - 2 Pop up Canopies for common area
    Syko89 - 2 Tents



    everyone who knows Wyn1370 - contact him and harass him until he commits to going

    Good call. We also need to know how many tents they will be bringing.

    how big are the camping spots? or is it just a big open field? Can you park vehicles at the camping area or do they have to stay in the parking lot? Currently we need enough space for 4-6 decent sized tents, and we are going to try and bring along a raised fire ring so we can have a campfire at night.

    It's just a big open field. Fires are only allowed in grills and portable fire pits, but I think that's what you're talking about when you say "raised fire ring."

    Camping areas are large, they are open spaces. But they are not sectioned off into individual campsite areas. Its first come first serve. They fill up quick though. You have to park in the parking lot with your vehicle. The only exception is if you have a RV. then you park in the RV area, and could have your vehicle nearby too. We can rope off a AGD campsite Thursday for everyone. We need a accurate tally of tents before then.

    Do we stage out of the camping area or is there a staging area up closer to the action?

    Prior years their was staging. This year, the prior staging area is in the field of play. So staging this year is out of the campsite or parking lot
    We can get the campsite area closest to field of play if everyone wants to do that.

    * closest may not have decent shade though. So distance vs. shade may be something to consider.

    That would make the most sense to me - I always hated Michigan Monster game and the hike/ride back to the campsite if you forgot something or needed to load up more paint.

    Maybe a spot close to the field of play, but not right on the main road so people are not cutting through our site. Is there a map of the field layout already?

    I'll have two pop-up canopies and a couple of tables that we can use as a common area/staging, since I'm not camping.

    There's usually at least one camp that has a generator, projector, and video games. It really wouldn't be a problem if you guys seriously did want to bring all that stuff.

    Don't forget camping chairs, even if you don't plan on camping. It's always nice to have a place to sit. They'll be safe over night in our common area.

    They will have concessions there according to Sean Scott - But doesn't hurt to bring a few snacks and extra waters. I assume the concessions will have "captured audience" type pricing
