I remember last year they said no pop-ups. But then they saw how many people
were collapsing from heat and they let us put them up. Could you get away
with a large free-standing umbrella? Guess we just wait and see. :pirate:
Who's got the rum?

Thanks
Seats, 8 rows
Is there any reason not to sit in the pit vs. the 100 sections?
I think it's personal preference but this year I have Section 102 first row, center. I like the section seats because you are a little elevated from the floor and are almost even with the stage. Plus, you can always sneak down towards the pit if there are empty seats if you want to be adventurous :)

Let's hope for tents this year, Jimmy should make a stand, especially with the new margaritaville tent out! Hoping for parking lots to open at 10-11 this year. By closing the lots they just cause more traffic and problems for themselves. They are not going to stop the phlock from coming early. At least not this one! We have a full 40 person us this year.

Fins up!

Camden, the city and the parking authority are run by idiots.

Don't get your hopes up for EZ Ups. All Camden wants is our money they do not care about us. Maybe when somebody dies from heat exhaustion and sues??? They did not even have the decency to reply to my letters last year after the complete cluster outside and inside the parking lots. There's no consistency to the enforcement of the rules. You would think after hosting as many Buffett concerts as they have they would have a clue. NOT!!!

In a nutshell - Camden is a joke.

The only reason we're going to Camden this year is cuz MK got a bus. If I had to sit through another traffic jam caused and mismanaged by those morons I would shot somebody!!! Friends of mine who left their house on LBI after reading my FB post that I was stuck in traffic waiting to park were in the parking lot set up and partying AN HOUR before even got in.

This year don't care. Just chill on the bus....

What is everyone's take on the parking and tent situation this year? Is Jimmy going to speak up and tell them we need tents in the hot sun of August? Will parking lots be one before 12 this year?

My take is it will be a nightmare as (recently) usual! They will charge an outrageous fee to get in a lot, miles away from the venue.They will hound you to take down your canopy, they won't open the lots until every street in Camden is impassable (probably closer to one) and just cause general unhappiness. . . . BUT WE'RE STILL GONNA GO!!!!! :wench:

On another note, I had to go to the general forum to find this thread! I know we're all on FB more and more, but really??? We've all become friends on BN, we can't abandon it completely!

Check into Philly, and taking the Ferry over and back. Then you can either choose a hotel closer to the ferry dock or take a cab in Philly which is pretty efficient.

I love taking the ferry.

We stay in Philly, bar hop until lunch, and then bar hop back to the hotel to load up for the ferry and the parking lot.

The trick is hooking up with a tailgate when you get over there. We've missed the BN tailgate the last few times, but still managed to meet up with some transplanted New York friends.

usually a week or two before the concert, someone sets up a cellphone list, try to get on it this year, that way when you get to the lot you will have a list of phone numbers to find out where the BN groups are
but my friends just call me RAGZ; so feel free.

I just punched in 4 tickets/lawn on ticketmaster for Camden and 4 tickets popped up! Can't believe it. Usually, lawn are taken the day they are released. Crazy! More room in the parking lots for us! ;)
