Volunteer Parking

Volunteers receive two parking hangtags, a v-tag and a working hang tag. Volunteers should remember to always have the V- tag parking pass visible and, when on a committee assignment, have the working volunteer day tag visible, in addition to the V-tag.

Badges and parking permits are non-transferable and are for the exclusive use of the individuals to whom they are issued. The act of loaning, giving or selling badges or parking permits to other individuals is strictly prohibited and shall be considered grounds for the forfeiture of the badge and/or parking permit and may result in removal from committee service. Any member/individual found to be duplicating or attempting to reproduce badges, parking permits or other similar items without written permission from Show management may be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law and/or permanently expelled from Show membership.
