      It's access to bathrooms/private areas for a whole host of medical procedures and using restrooms and taking meds. It's places to get out of wheelchairs if need be. It's making sure there's not only standing area but plenty of places for people to sit. It's making sure the grounds are all level and there aren't holes, hills, or big pits or something, or any other kind of blocks for chairs to get by.

      There are so many things.

        After a debacle with heat illness in Spokane a few years back, BMWMOA is getting very fussy. They're requiring indoor areas with AC, accessable facilities, etc.. I've been to BMWMOA rallies in recent years in fairgrounds that were as accessable as Minneapolis convention center and the adjacent hotels.

        BTW, before they built the light rail line it typically cost over $100 for a wheelchair user who couldn't transfer to get from the airport to downtown Minneapolis.
