California Tractor Show

:shock: :( :o

Our big show is at the Ag center in Tulare Ca. in April. For me that's a 400+mile round trip. Up until this year exihbitor's RV parking was free. Just received the show info for this year. Exhibitors will have to pay a $80.00 RV camping fee(no hook ups), $10.00 fee for an atv, golf cart or anyother means to get around the show and a $10.00 fee for something else. That's $100 out of my pocket for the pleasure of showing my tractor. Spectators will only pay a $30.00 camping fee for the three days of the show. Doesn't make a lot sence to me. The exibitors are what make the show. It's going to be interesting to see if there's an impact on the number of exhibitors that show up.

Brent, those dollar numbers are insane. Please call and speak to the event management regarding your thoughts on these charges and of your displeasure. If they persist with these fees, I see an end to this otherwise great event. Thank you for showing your Cub in the past, it was always a pleasure in speaking to you at this event. I doubt I will go this year as for these last several, I have been trying to recoup from additional surgeries. Steve K.

That is a shame. Doesn't seem fair to the exhibitors at all.

I understand, we have the same kind of mentality up here with our snowmobile trail system. It is nutz. :(

:( :roll:
Found out today that the last $10.00 fee I mentioned was to recoup the administrative costs associated with sending the show info and exhibitor sign up sheets out.
