Editor’s note: Click here for the official SBIX map!
Not to be confused with the official Super Ball IX festival map, it seems some clever sleuthing by some fans has turned up what appears could be a legitimate layout map of the festival grounds.
A rudimentary SBIX map(below) was found on emsvending.com, the website of the company responsible for managing at least some of the beverage vending at the festival. The map is used on their site to show vendors where they can arrive, park and camp at Super Ball IX while they work for the weekend.
PT’er and HoodStream moderator Jonny Schaefer took a closer look at the map and found each section of the festival site by reading small print while zooming into the image. The map at the top of this article shows his labels for different areas laid over a Google map satellite image of Watkins Glen International. It should be known that the sections for RV and Family camping are not so evident on the map, but other areas should be legit.
This new map differs slightly from other versions of layout maps that circulated soon after Super Ball IX was announced in March.
Sure, you might want to use a big grain of salt when using this map to make any plans, if there are any plans that even could be made at this time. But all things reconsidered, it looks like the map could be mostly correct. We’ll all know in a week anyways.
