Some fine print on Registration Policies:

To work within the space available at Eden Valley, we must limit the number of attendees to 700 individual attendees.  We are limited on the space available for parking vehicles.  Please help us reduce the number of vehicles on-site by arranging to car pool with friends and/or family.

There are limited in-and-out privileges for vehicles parked around the main telescope field. If you park in this area, we ask that your vehicle stays there until you vacate your campsite. If you plan to or need to make trips off-site, please plan on parking or camping elsewhere. We will have a designated parking area off the main field for attendees to use. If you are unsure of your needs, please inquire when you arrive with one of the Parking Staff or a Director - we will make every reasonable effort to accomodate your needs.

Vehicles are prohibited from driving accross the main telescope field. If you need to drop off equipment for setting up on the main telescope field, please coordinate how to accomplish this with one of the Parking Staff or a Director.
