This is my input. Pricing sucks. Get it right for next year. Camping $50 or I pay $15 to walk in for the two days.

Actually, you have that a bit wrong. Walk in cost was "$3 per person or 2 for $5" per the FB page.

$15/car for show admission for two days? That's a freaking bargain.

$25/night for tent camping does seem a bit stiff. Was that per tent or did they mark off each site? Might be something to consider. Like an actual campground that allows X number of tents and/or people per site. That would make it reasonable.

DNW is a nonprofit, so nobody is in this for the money, but at the same time, they have to cover their costs. Putting on this event is not cheap.

I don't think so... Yeah T shirts were $10 per the website but $15 at the event and the website quickly changed to $15.  So I doubt it's $3. I was told, and paid $10 a day $15 for the weekend.

 

It's always been (well for two years) $25 per night... period. If you have a camping spot... you're in.

it was $3 per person/$5 for pair at the gate mike, i took advantage of that myself. if they had asked me to pay more i would've turned and walked away as i didn't have more to spend on getting in the gate


Lol you really think he would tell anyone, ahh yes Mr. Peterson I was taken a piss and everything got dark like there was an eclipse, when I look back to see what was making the shade when WHAM!! Cock hit me right in the face. I don't know whose it was but we could match up the bruise.

Well they changed it then. Maybe Sunday afternoon was reduced. I was told $10 and $15 for the weekend (in addition to the $50 for the camping) and I did walk away. I went back and paid for the night I had already stayed and that day. Camped elsewhere that night and got a day pass for Sunday. Saturday and Sunday passes were $10 each... this is what I paid.

 

So obviously different people were charged much different amounts. Or more likely didn't know what the hell they were doing.

It was $3 a head for four of us to go in and I thought that was worth it. We walked in if that makes a difference.

It was $25 for Friday night camping and $10 for the day Saturday, paid Saturday morning. I remember arguing about the extra $10 for nothing. Sunday morning I was charged $10 for the day around 9 AM.  So either you arrived late Sunday and were given a better rate or I was over charged for no reason which is even worse.

it was 10 a day for drive in and 15 for 2 days drive inj plus 25 a night for camping but no extra car show fee wich i think was 40 for previous years 

I dont know what it costs to put this on but pre registration with said set costs would eliminate a bunch of fuck ups at the gate 

we paid a decent amount of money and had a great time 

i hope it continues next year and the car show rules go back to what they were 

if they dont so be it I will still be there

 I think the problem Mike is having was, they charge him the 10 dollars to park in the Corral. But his car never made it out front. It stayed back in the camping area and never was "ENTERED" into the show. But made him pay anyways.

I walked in Sunday morning through the gate, they saw me walk in, it was early.... $10. I don't bother with the corral, it's inconvenient and everyone knows what a 710 looks like.

 

I thought I was clear what I wanted, camping only.

Don't want to be in the show. Want to camp.... not subsidize some 'trophy' or cheaper Tee shirts. Fuckin' A I'll bitch about it.

 

Lets see... you put $25 of gas in your car but when you go to pay, it's $35. WTF? you say. They say 'Oh that's for the squeegee and water to clean your windshield'. Don't  need it and didn't use it, you say. They say $35 please. But that's 40% more for the same amount of gas I always buy here,!! you say. They say... $35 please. 

 

If you were paying $35 for $25 worth of gas you'd be upset.
