I like to sit under the cover because without fail it always rains one day or another. I normally try to shop Thursday or Friday and only get dressage seating for one of the days. Then I get seats for Sunday. A tailgate is fun for Saturday but they are pricey. I hope to be able to go this coming year too. Well see though!
We also get seats under the covered roof for Friday - Thursday is the best shopping day. For Saturday - rain gear, just in case. Get your hotel reserved, if you haven't already!
I organized a group of 18 for Rolex 2015- Trainer competed and we were all like "WE'RE COMING TO SEE YOU!". It was great, a good time was had by all.I liked watching dressage from the rail- front row. I couldn't get front row for the second day of dressage and was actually a bit annoyed once my group sat down for the day! Pre-order the headphones for dressage commentary. I wish I had. By the time I decided I wanted to listen, they were sold out.None of us paid to tailgate for XC day, we walked/stood on course before becoming too soppy (it poured) and then we went back to the main arena to watch the big screen coverage of XC and shop and eat.I forget which section of seating I got for SJ, but it was closest to the in gate and under the overhang... except if it had rained we would have gotten wet anyway. Those seats were OK, if I had to do it again, I'd sit at the same section level (with a chance of overhang shade with a chance of getting wet) but closer to the middle of the arena. Front row in whatever section is a must though!Shop on Thursday- stuff sells out FAST. Some things I went back for on Saturday, only to find they were sold out.
IM GOING THIS YEAR OMG CANT WAIT
Jealous, I want to go! If I could figure out some way to make it school related...
Buy the headphones for commentary. I really like having Kentucky Club for XC day, but it is expensive. I think it's worth it, but others may disagree.
I've been but I was technically media so I didn't really have assigned seats. It seems to me any seat is a great seat! It's Rolex!!!
