I will probably show, but only because it is only 30 minutes from my house.

IMO... Grapevine, TX in the middle of summer is a double bad. 1.) The riding around Grapevine is horrible. Literally a 1 or 2 on a scale of 1-10. 2.) It will be miserably hot.

Add to this fact that the Gaylord is charging for parking and the hotel is already pretty pricey, and I think attendance will be way below average.

This being the case, if I was a vendor with limited funds, I don't think I'd go to Wing Ding unless I was pretty sure I had a product that would really sell a lot. (like maybe cold water or beer )

WingDing Vendor

They sell a wheel cleaner that seems to work very well.

We'll be there even though last year was a much, much longer and much, much better ride destination.

I've been to two wingdings would like to go to another but the wisdom of one in southern Texas in the summer borders on kickbacks and payoffs, if not down right stupidity. GWRRA you should know better, and could have done much better.
