FPF 18 Load in and Parking Videos!
« on: October 11, 2018, 10:42:50 PM »
Heya everyone,

We figured with a whole new venue and so many changes from last year that we'd make a couple of videos to help show you how easy getting games in and out will be.

We have a loading dock this year..  a real genuine dock with room for up to 6 trucks at one time in addition to ramps for games by dolly.  Once you get your games off the truck onto the dock it's about a 15 foot roll until you are actually in the ballroom!  Plenty of doors, plenty of room and likely no real waiting for your opportunity to load and unload.   Parking is just as easy, there's a few machines that scan the ticket you get on the way in and give you a receipt to scan on the way out.

There is a special lot for large trailers and trucks to make that process smooth too.  Hopefully if you're on the fence about bringing a game due to the hassles of the last venue having one way in and one way out this will help.

Please, feel free to ask questions and if more videos help we'll make em.

I remember having to do quite a bit of vehicle shuffling/directing to get games in last year. This looks so much better and I’m looking forward to a better experience.

the loading dock itself is designed fro regular 50ft trailers, you would have to pull the uhaul ramp and go "up" into the loading dock, or pull in straight and load out at the end of the ramp.

If you're like most of us without a semi then just go down the ramp slightly and offload out the back and go up the ramp like Hamster shows.  The cool thing about the large space is a half dozen dudes with trucks or trailers can pull up now and unload simultaneously versus 1 or 2 trucks taking up that tiny space at the last place.

+1

You can also get to this loading dock WITHOUT going thru the parking lot and paying parking fees.  So for those "Not" Staying on Thursday night, and are just dropping off, here is the way in. ( this is actually the best way in for access )

my statement was how to avoid paying parking to just drive to the load in dock, you can come around the backside without dealing with any parking or checking in to get free parking etc.
