I think it is a joke if it's the "COW" I'm familiar with as a programmer. It is a tongue-in-cheek programming language that uses numbers which translate into "moo" codes for managing computer memory.

I'm sure there was something tongue-in-cheek about that in all caps since the Georgia National Fairgrounds is primarily used to host agricultural and equestrian events.

Yes, I guess it was pleasant for somebody on Sunday...it was 102 in the sun on my patio about 1:30 PM. I decided it was nap time 'till it cooled off. Shade temperature was 94. Perry is about 100 miles south of me and there is no telling what it was like in the middle of the state.

OH, so you work for THAT deathstar. I used to work for the old deathstar, well, until they sold us.

Does anybody know what the policy is for non-WBCCI visitors at the International? We may try to stop down there and visit with a few of you, time permitting.

To the best of my knowledge it is not a problem to visit folks at the International.But,to take in any of the entertainment etc a pass is needed and can be purchased at the site.

Haven't heard and I have been asking.

I plan to pop in over a long lunch hour where a few are meeting on the 26th that InSideOut is putting together. Looks like quite a few Forum members.

no doubt policy and practice changes yearly

at salem it was a PROBLEM for unregistered folks to visit inside the compound.

after check in at a guard post, they would carry a message from the visitor to the member, wouldn't let ya just go in.

day passes were available on the friday? of the vintage open house.

many folks did slip past the guards at other times....

cheers

It's my understanding that day-passes are available for the rally for a nominal ($10-15) fee. Not just for the Open House, but each day. Some people stay off-site in hotel rooms - this is how they are able to attend. The organizers typically do frown upon people just wandering the grounds without checking in though...in Salem there were several bikes stolen and they did "lock down" the site to protect the members more than I had seen before. I can't say that's all bad...especially if things were turning up missing.

Shouldn't be a problem if you check in for a day (or several day) pass.

If it aint the bed bugs its the sugar ants!

Read this on another list

"Just got a call from Gene Poast and he wants us to pass the word to all
that are coming to Perry. Thought you might be able to do a quick email.

They have been inundated with small sugar ants. "They are so bad
they are dropping from the ceiling." The ants have been rejuvenated
with the recent rain and everyone is having a problem Gene suggests that
you buy a product called Toro and bring it with you. Toro comes in a
small bottle and you put a few drops on a piece of cardboard and they
love it."

That product might be "Terro" which is a boric acid-sugar syrup solution. But it has to be set around on various surfaces so the ants take it back to the mothership and eventually all their little ant-stomachs explode.
It does work incredibly well--I use the traps every year--but it takes some time. If you place it outside at their portals of entry, it could keep them at bay. But it's not so good for the pets.
And it might not be the most effective technique for a short-term rally.
You might want to try some diatomaceous earth around all wheels, hose bases, etc. as a fairly non-toxic barrier.
Sounds like a terrific rally, with or without pesky visitors. Have fun!
Janet
