I appreciate Greg's comments. As a Senior Citizen, I also appreciate the decision by Pioneer Power to allow conveyances during shows. I'm sure I speak for others that, like me, are not "handicapped" in the usual sense of the word but can no longer spend an entire day on their feet. I can't attend shows that don't allow me to ride. People of all ages attend shows like this - but I think older people are especially appreciative of them. Like Greg, I think "Pioneer Power" is one of the best - if not THE BEST! - show in the midwest - and I want to attend as often as is possible. The only way I can do that is on my "4 wheeler" - my lawn tractor. Perhaps a little thoughtfulness by drivers is in order - as is a little patience and understanding by others. I'd be the first to agree that those who don't exhibit those traits should lose the privilege. May I suggest that conveyances be "tagged" by the show? As it is now, we just drive them in - no one checks them over. It's too "easy" - there's no emphasis on courtesy and privilege. I'd suggest a gate that conveyances would have to go through where a worker would not be harsh but would check the drivers age and make sure the rig had a muffler - then put a "license" (tag) on the unit and give the driver a "must read" paper regarding courtesy issues while on the grounds. Ramping up the "responsibility" side of things would strengthen the "privilege" side of things so that, psychologically, people would pay more attention to courtesy - and keep in mind having a ride is a privilege to be respected. If my suggestion causes legal worries, at least hand out the paper and require drivers to read it. That's my two cents worth. Thanks. Bill
