Sat night:
Back to camping under the stars with friends! Talking about the fun of the day around the campfire and kicking back!

PLEASE READ:
Sunday, Oct 5th 2014: We must be OFF the church property by 7:30 am , As every year we have to pack it up and leave due to the church having services that day and they need the parking area. Those dragging a bit that morning have to at least move to the far north east corner of the lot..

That is about it! Keep in mind ....
October in New Mexico can be interesting weather wise. Hot days and chilly nights are not uncommon. Be prepared for weather changes. Bring sunscreen but don't forget your jacket. Nights can dip into the low 40's or even 30's! If campfires are your thing, please bring your own firewood, and all fires must be above ground and contained (fire pits, portable fireplaces, smudge pots...etc). There will be metal trash cans for all ashes. please do not leave your ash on the parking lot. if you need a hand dumping your fire pit, let someone know.

This show is all about having fun, hanging out with friends, and raising money for good causes. There are, however, a few rules.

No glass containers.
No animals off leash or in the show area.
If you bring animals, please control them, and clean up after them.
Please be mindful of other people, and don't impede their good time.
No on-ground fires.
No burnouts. Especially during the slow drag races.
Quiet time from 10pm - 6am.


Although everyone is welcome to attend, we reserve the right to remove anyone from the campout at any time (with good cause) without a refund. Please understand this is to help keep the event fun and keep it going for next year.
