The tremendous volunteers are much refreshed after a night to rest. Usually they assist people at the entrance and on an as-needed basis within the campground. For the past two days, they have extended their shifts and individually escorted many people to campsites, and also tended to those who have been parked off-site in the big camping rigs and motorhomes.
Sorry about any inconvenience that shutting off registration last night may have caused. As I mentioned last night, the admissions group was at the end of its limits, and we preferred not having campers trying to find their way through the dark, especially if it's in a location where they might not be familiar. It's a unique year, and the folks out there are going the extra mile to accommodate as many people as possible. Most attendees have been incredibly patient and understanding, as we know EAA members are. The volunteers and staff appreciate that.
Also, EAA staff and volunteers will be going through some of the off-site areas later today and tomorrow with information on the most frequently asked questions, such as dump station options and other key info.
This morning, the Country USA grounds across the highway from EAA have been opened to the Class A rigs and heavy units. That will add considerable territory and allow us to move more units into position.
One item that was passed along -- if you brought a four-wheeler or other extra vehicle and are in Camp Scholler, please be considerate and don't use that vehicle on the turf roads. Those ATVs chew up turf in a hurry, and it may mean your car (or your neighbor's) gets stuck later. When the roads become impassable, it also means things such as port-a-pottie pumping and maintenance is delayed. Not a good thing.
