    Going to the Grand this year for the first time and would like to know what vendors will be there and your location on "Vendor Row" I will be on a limited time schedule and would like to plan my time accordingly. If you could list as East end or West end, that would be great.

    I also have heard of ice cream and BBQ places that are NOT TO MISS,,,,even tho this violates my diet, thought I might give them a try.

    Thanks.

    bd,

    Despite what others have posted, it's not difficult to walk both the East side (tent vendors) and the West side (permanent vendors) in the same day.

    Typically what we do is walk the east side at lunch and the west after shooting.

    We usually do lunch at the Butcher's Block (far east end of the tent vendors) which has a variety of food for lunch (including very good sausage) in addition to homemade cobbler and ice cream. Most of the food vendors are from about bank 6 thru bank 8.

    I haven't tried the cobbler (it's not on my diet either), but I thought I might make an exception this year. It's gotten raves from everyone I know that's tried it. The home-made peach ice cream is supposed to be great too.

    Can't wait.

    Bigdog, you sold me a wall chart in 2009 for one of my AIM kids. You even reduced it for the kid. I told you I appreciate that, and i owed you one. So, I owe you one! Send me a pm of when you will be there. I have a camper and stay on the grounds. Rick Gibbs

    It sure would be nice to have a list of vendors and their locations before we get there. Likely that information is held by the IDNR and could be converted to pdf for posting here. I am not sure who to contact for that. Can anyone help us out with at least a list of vendors who plan to attend?
