We welcome anyone who wants to come and ride and have never restricted any attendance. In past years we began to have guests who said they were just coming to ride and then proceeded to come and bring large trailers that were essentially a rolling billboard. Some even went down to the camping area and set up what amounted to a booth to promote their products. This is not a good situation for several reasons, the primary one being that there are many vendors paying for display space and it is unfair to them for these people to draw guests into the park rather than to the vendor areas. As always, everyone is invited to come out and ride and have a great time. If competitors and other vendors wish to come and bring their ATVs and ride, they are also welcome. However, if they want to come and set up to promote or sell their products they aren’t unless they have an approved booth. We would respect whatever rules other rides establish and we only ask for the same.
For these reasons, we reserve the right to refuse admission at the gate to representatives of any business, competitor or not, where the pursuit of which is obvious from vehicles or trailers. In the event that one gets in unnoticed and is found later to be objectionable in our discretion or is found performing business operations without being an authorized vendor, will be asked to leave without refund.
If you or someone you know is coming, with the intention to sell product, and does not already have a booth space, we will be glad to discuss your situation in advance. We do not want to waste anyone’s time or travel expense, but are very serious about this.
Flashing Strobe Lights or Emergency Style Lights
Therefore this year displaying flashing emergency style lights will not allowed by non-emergency personnel. You do not have to remove them, just leave them turned off while at Mud Nationals. Violators will be asked to disable these lights by removing bulbs or disconnecting wires or leaving the premises.
If there were only going to be a few hundred or even thousand people at Mud Nationals it wouldn’t make much difference; however, with large crowds to get through, this could be the difference in EMTs getting to someone promptly or not.
Please assist us by leaving yours off and asking others you see to turn them off.
I hope everyone understands and respects these policies.
