Well, This is my 32'nd year. I was a vendor for about half of them. I missed one year due to a serious illness. Myself and quite a few others were kicked out of our spots in the name of "Traffic control" last year. So I, And most of them did not come back as vendors. Most did not come back at all since it had become more of a social event than anything. When I got there last year I find a half million dollar RV parked in our spots that we were ousted from in the name of "Traffic control". And another very large vendor blocking the rest of the road. This year one of those vendors is back in those spots that we were kicked out of but I never got any notice that they were opened up again and neither did the others. Many of the long time big vendors are tired of being bounced around to different spots also. I know of one who told me this was going to be his last year. Just poor management is what is doing it in. The club got a BIG cut on the rental of the lot many years ago but never passed that along to the vendors. This is the highest cost per spot far and away. And every year people have their tents and canopies blown away because they cannot be adequately tied down. This year even the organizers finally got a taste of what everyone has had for years when their tent was moved around by a storm. They are no longer sheltered by the hill that was always blocking the wind for them. NOW they will see what everyone else has to deal with and that a bucket of water just does not cut it. Friday morning I saw a LOT of damaged goods from Thursdays nights storm. So there are a few more reasons vendors are not wanting to come anymore.
