  • Re: Eggtoberfest 2012 Notes for the Future

    JustEggit,

    There are 2 options for camping (unless they change it) at Eggtoberfest. The first is infield camping which is mostly for tent campers or motorhome or TT with generators. There are no amenities on the infield although there are bathroom facilities nearby.

    The other option is full hookup on the back straight away of AMS at the Trackside Terrace campground. This is where we have camped the last 2 years and we love it. There are 61 + spots with full hook ups. This year there were 10 of our group (North GA Eggers) who brought campers. We partied and cooked at the end unit with lots of folks joining us.

    Hope to see you next year.

    The M & G is always fun as it is less crowded (they limit it to 500 folks) and you can get the tag for your BGE if you are cooking and locate your spot for cooking on Saturday...again this is good for us as our group tries to cook together if possible...

    Hic,

    Who were the folks on the infield campground who were whooping & hollering all night Friday night? Was it the Canadian Team??? Whoever it was they can sure yell...we heard up on the hill real well...LOL

    books,

    Honestly the weather has been great all 3 years at AMS..prior to that there were a few rainy & cold Eggfests...we just hope it stays perfect like this past weekend....

     

    And plenty of restrooms, sinks, showers even...and porto potties.... :+))

    books,

     

    Great notes for sure. I will add a few thoughts.

    1. The camping registration is on the page with the Eggtoberfest tickets when you sign up for Meet-n-greet ecetera. We have camped up there 2 years in a row and it is a blast.

    2. Most of the cooks get going at 7AM so by 2-3PM we are beat. There will always be a few cooks who go to the very end. Yes you are right we usually breakfast items, a few entrees & desserts..I did cookies for 3 hours straight. It was fun

    3. Yep get the swag & tshirts...take your tickets out & take it back to the car...if you are going to go to the store to buy something do that 1st thing then take that to the car also.

    4. You can bring your own drinks (no bottles) and get them there as well.

    5. Demos are good & on video.

    6. Glad you enjoyed the cooks & food...that is why we sign up to cook...tons of fun..Long cooks like pork butts & briskets are hard to do at feasts. Even though our buddy brought his large BGE to the campground & did 4 butts for Saturday...I hope you got some as they were deeelicious.

    7. Do the car rides Friday night at the M&G...less people.

    8. Yep the store is open

    9. Enjoy yourself...do not eat before arriving...pace yourself...there is a lot of food...

    10. Approx 3000-3500 people including 250+ cooks...lots of room for everyone...

    HAVE FUN!!!!
