Anybody go watch take-off this morning? I'm hearing that it's dang near impossible to do because of the lack of access to the state park and parking etc... I went to the Classic when it was on the Red River and watching take-off was good. I'd love to go watch it at Roberts, but didn't want to make that drive if it isn't worth it.

TIA!

I hear they had a big turnout this morning for takeoff. Must not be that bad.

We went to the take-off this morning, it was great! We got there around 5:55am and were able to park without much trouble and had a very short walk. No problem getting in and right near the festivities.

I expect Sat and Sun to be busier, but we really enjoyed it this morning.

I went this morning and did not get there till 6:00.

Drive right up to where they were taking off and walked 200 yards at most and stood there and watched them take off.
