While loading, unloading or waiting in line in your vehicle,
the event steward team would ask that you turn off the
ignition and respect the “no idling” policy.  Idling
your vehicle contributes to both noise and air pollution, so
please while entering, loading, unloading or exiting the
campsite, please “muzzle your dragon” and turn off the
ignition until you are ready to drive!
