Mike:

You are right, we only pass this way once. I remember both of the Bloomsburg PA RPRU's, and I hope they get a 3rd. That would be closer .. but at some point I am going to have to bite the bullet and just go .. be a nice holiday for us :D Riding through the grounds is the only way we could do it ... not as mobile as I used to be even a couple months ago. :(

4 Days to Red Power Round Up 2013

I've been asked several questions about when you can start bringing your displays. Chapter 6 officially gets the Allen County fairgrounds Monday morning. The fairgrounds is allowing Chapter 6 to start to set up buildings that aren't being used Sunday afternoon. Part of the fairground is being used Sunday.
All vendors and camping spots are full.
Arrival time for campers is Tuesday after 1 PM per camping contract.
All the vendors should have received a vendor information letter telling when the vendor can arrive and start setting up their area. Contact your vendor chairperson if you haven't received your vendor information letter.
Gates open for all displays starting Tuesday, June 18 at 8 AM. All displays and vendors must enter the fairgrounds off Bowman road. Bowman Road is on the east side of the fairgrounds. There will be signs on the front side of the fairgrounds (State Route 309) and the back side (State route 117). Registration is in the south east corner of the fairgrounds. The plans are to have displays registered before you unload them and someone from Chapter 6 will escort you to the display area. There are different areas for campers, Cub Cadets and vendors to sign in.

There is co nstruction on I-75 around the fairgrounds exit(s). Chapter 6 will have a message board(s) on I75 before the road construction on the northbound and southbound lanes. The message board will say
RPRU
Tractor
Show

Exit
122 ( RT 65 Road Ramp)

Exit
130 (Bluelick Road ramp)

The message boards will be up by 9 am Monday.

Chapter 6 has directions to the fairgrounds on this site http://www.rpru2013.com Look under Map and Directions icon.

To help speed up the set up process, Chapter 6 is not allowing guests to come on the grounds before Wednesday, June 19 at 12 PM.

Thank You for your cooperation.

Merk,
This is a very concise statement of what participants should know and should do on arrival. If it isn't on the main RPR web site it should be. I wish something like this had been posted before some of the previous RPRs!

Where do the campers come in? As big as my rig is with the trailer I'd hate getting lost. Also, were there camping confirmations sent out? If so, we never received one.

There will be signs to tell you what entrance to use.

Camping confirmations were sent out a month ago. Contact Camping Chairman for information.
