Camp Jordan is owned and operated by the city of East Ridge, TN. It's a large complex with lots of baseball/softball fields, several soccer fields, a walking/bike track, a fishing pond, a R/C Air Field, and a large arena in addition to the fenced field that we use. They have parking to support several events at once and the entire complex is patroled on a regular basis by the East Ridge City Police. If you park outside of the fenced-in area where we hold the show, it's an "at your own risk" deal, but the entire park is pretty secure. Inside the show grounds it's still an "at your own risk" deal, but personally, I feel a lot better about parking one of my vehicles inside the fence at the show than I do in my own back yard! Like Herb said, we've done this for several years and I've never heard a complaint about anyone messing with anyone else's car.
If you want to park inside the fence and leave your car there unattended overnight, you've got 4 options . . .
1- Enter the show. $15 pre-registered . . . gets you a reserved spot in the thick of the show and also puts you in the running for some cool door prizes. And you never know . . . even if your car isn't "show ready," you might end up in a class without a lot of competition and take a trophy home to boot!
2- Set up as a vendor. Also $15 pre-registered.
3- Join the club. $15 for a one year membership. You can display your car in the non-judged member area all weekend. The downside . . . we'll probably put you to work! :lol: The upside . . . you'll be a Volksfolks member!
You'll also get free pizza after the show . . . before we put you to work again helping us clean up the field. :wink:
4- Camp. $5 per person. You can park your car in the camping area.
On the motels . . . see the "sticky" in the "Events" forum.
