Topic: Newb questions about the social goin'-ons around a Lemons rally.
Thinking about doing the Retreat this year
I would guess that it's really worth it to attend stay at the recommended hotels and attend the pre-event car show, so to have more opportunities to bribe the judges and revel in other competitor cars?
If we don't stay with the herd are we missing out on a lot? Or do participants mostly go their own ways most of the time anyway?
Just trying to figure out much of the overall experience we would miss if we didn't do all the above. I'm asking because we are local to the starting point and not sure if we should spend the money on the first couple nights of hotel, or save that cash for junkyard parts?
Also, for those teams that wear costumes, when do they wear them? Or do they wear them for the whole trip?
