Default Park next to your series buddy at the Rally

Ok so I checked with Kevin and he is hoping we are all willing to park in the series row of our vehicle this year...

-1st few rows would be for 40 series

-then a row for 60 series

-then a row for minis/tacomas/4runners

-then a row or 2 for 80 series, save a few spots for 100 series

-then the last few row for FJ Cruisers

Still folks can take up additional spots for swaping parts, just like in years past.

Maybe trailers that deliver rigs can be parked in an open row behind the FJCs?

If no one has any real objections, we can give this a shot this year and see if it makes for good pics.

no way i'm parking next to an ugly 55

we've tried this before. Unless you tell every person specifically where to park it won't happen. I mean most of us will but the people that aren't on this forum everyday will park where ever.

True it has been tried before. However, we are attempting to get the word out early so people can plan accordingly. Further, we will mention this as people are coming into the Rally. If you see someone intermingling series, please ask them to move the designated row. This is a great chance to get pics and we will try to make a play to have a write up in TT. Everyone's help is appreciated.

And why do the 80 and 100s have to park toward the back? Is it 'cuz all the guys driving the old iron need to be closer to the front because they'll already be worn out just driving to the Rally?

Jeff you should bring your 40 out to the Rally. Hearing the blow; not seeing the go!

The problem is if you get there at 11:00, you can't find a spot in your designated model row.
