It's definitely become more difficult since the move to the fairgrounds. My group always reserved two spots, this year we could only get one. I might need to stash my trailer in the back lot, not much different than Barber. We always end up in area A. I don't think they want tents in the other areas except maybe across the road. I don't know how some people seem to get the same spots every year. Not much choice for campgrounds to host large events. Most of the locations with enough space cater to RVs only, or permanent spaces.
Wade, there's only one way to find out! If you haven't been to the area, I'll issue the invitation. We've got space, and I've got bikes. Unfortunately, not British, at the moment, but ridin' is ridin! If you'ld like to bring the better half, we also have a house on Air BnB that I blocked out for that weekend.

GAMBA started out as a local chapter of TIOC. At least one year this rally was also the Triumph National. I remember that John Healy and Jack Wilson gave the tech presentation on Saturday night. Good times!
