Golf Carts

You may bring a golf cart to the show, however you must provide the following information:
     - Certificate of Liability (ACORD CERT) listing RRT as the Certificate Holder
     - Proof of handicapped status (permit)
     - Copy of Valid Driver's License.

     - You must register cart at RRT 1 and get a cart tag.

The vehicle must have a working muffler, and working head/tail lights should the vehicle be operated after dark. Additionally, you must read and sign our Safety Requirements to ensure you are aware of our policies, safety regulations and general conduct for operating a personal vehicle on show grounds.

Personal vehicles are the single most commented on distraction at our show. We understand the need for transportation around the show grounds and therefore have shuttle wagons that provide transportation around the show grounds during our show hours, and also shuttles to get you back to your vehicle at the end of the day. 

Due to the number of exhibits we have moving about the show, and our crowds, we simply cannot allow the general public to bring in personal vehicles due to the significant safety risk it poses, as well as the detraction to the ambiance of the show. We operate under the thought of “Our First Accident Could Be Our Last”. We apply this to all areas of the show, including transportation.

If you are found using a personal vehicle on our show grounds without proper handicapped status, you will be asked to provide it, or to park the vehicle until you leave the show grounds. Your vehicle may be impounded by RRT if these rules are not followed. Again, this is for the safety of both our volunteers and our guests. 

Transportation such as electric wheelchairs, Lark Scooters etc are exempt from this clause, however please exercise extreme caution while using these types of transportation.

Personal vehicles are prohibited from all of the Flea Market lanes. 


RRT does not rent golf carts.


Dogs
As a general rule, RRT does not allow dogs and we highly encourage you to leave them at home. If you have no other choice, you may keep your dog in the campgrounds, but NOT on the show grounds. Service dogs are exempt. You must keep your dog on a leash at all times, ensure they are not causing a disturbance to other nearby guests and you must pick up after them.  If your dog is not kept under control and is found to be a nuisance, you will have to remove from the grounds.  Keep in mind this is your dog and you are liable.
Dogs are not to be left unattended outdoors, or in your passenger car. If we spot a dog in danger from heat, we will take measures to ensure that dog is safe. (We will page the owner of the vehicle, and involve proper authorities to enter the vehicle if need be to remove the dog.)
