I'll be there. Don't know what I'm traveling in yet but I'll be there.
Just need a spot to pull a Car or Van into.

If my old and worn memory is still working there were not that many committed to the meet in January last year and you had a ton show up unannounced as spur of the moment attendees. By now you have got to have figured out that many on this forum are very impulsive ;D ;D ;D

I'm really hoping to go, but life threw a bunch of variables at me. I can't commit until the last minute.

I've been setting aside a little money, and will make every effort to go. Bring a couple springers to shoot or sell, and do my best to embarrass myself at the firing line  ;) Looking forward to shaking some hands and put a face to a name.
If anyone is coming from the west, going thru Nebraska, maybe we could drive together? Not relishing driving 2 days and 1000 miles by myself, each way.

The campsites/RV parking sites are good size. Two tents at least will fit. Maybe you can get an idea of the size from a few of these photos.
The first photo is taken at the concession building looking down the drive.





And take a look through 18 pages from Fun Shoot 2015 (the first one at the venue) and Fun Shoot 2016 for more photos.

http://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=77828.0

http://www.gatewaytoairguns.org/GTA/index.php?topic=100747.0

When you enter the fairgrounds, there is a winding driveway up toward the main concession/event area. As you drive up the estimated 200 yard or so driveway, the camp/RV sites are on both sides of the gravel drive. The camp/RV sites continue up to the concession building and on the right side of the building there are a few more sites. The first year we set up the firing line tents directly behind the concession building. Last year, due to the soggy weather, we were forced to set the firing line up on the gravel road beside the concession building. The camp/RV sites are just a few yards from everything. It's a pretty neat setup IMO. Everything is close and compact yet enough room for all.

You know, If OleTomCat's site was next door to mine, I have no doubt there would be room for 3 tents.......

Okay, just off the phone with Jeff at Ramada Sparta. We are set up for the discount code so you can start calling for your reservations.
Be aware that they are 100% non-smoking rooms. They have offered us rooms at $69 per night which is excellent. It's a better rate than any advertised on their site.
https://www.wyndhamhotels.com/ramada/sparta-kentucky/ramada-sparta-ky/overview

Don't make reservations online,. please call. Tell them you are with the GTA group and you have a choice of a king size bed or a room with two queen size. Your choice.
Call (859)567-7223. If the person on the phone has any issues or problems, ask to speak to Jeff, the manager.
See you guys there!!!!
