Overnight Buggy Parking


In years past the legendary Kite Fort has been standing vigilant guard over our buggies for overnight parking. I know the Kite Fort is long gone, but is there any way we could set up some sort of overnight buggy parking for the event?

Pretty sure thats a negatory good buddy... we have not done that in the past couple of years unfortunately. If I remember correctly, the last time YOU were at JIBE was the last time we were able to do that, but not 100% sure on that.

It wasn't a matter of losing access to an RV. If I remember correctly the JIA stopped granting permits to park the RV in the lot.

That stinks too! Glad I booked a place on Jekyll that isn't too far from base camp. Got the new buggy today (most of it anyway lol) And it shouldn't be too bad to toss in the back of the truck with some tie downs.

I have offered my 40' RV with 20' awning and night time service for the cause. A different kind of Kite Fort, just bigger.

I believe its past time to sit down with JIA and explain our needs!

Every other Event there leaves their CRAP all over the park for 3-7 days, why not us!
Last year I counted 7 RV's parked overnight for 5 days!

I believe that if JIBE had a CONTRACT with JIA, our EVENT would have RELEVANCE and our needs would be on paper.

WE NEED A CONTRACT rather than a wink and a handshake to lock in JIBE for several years into the future and have some of the park for ourselves. All State employees are subject to position changes, but contracts are a business deal with the State and the Event. Law.

As it is now, JIBE keeps getting pushed out of the park each year.
