Mary E camping question-saving spots?

Hey all,
This will be my first time at Telluride, along with my band. We have a few friends arriving to the campground on Monday, but the rest of us won’t get there until wednesday mid-day. What is the protocol on saving space for other members of your group? There will be a decent amount of us, but also don’t want to be “those people” if its not cool. Any suggestions for ways to camp near friends without causing problems would be much appreciated!
