    • Ali ☀.

      Thanks! Richardson's typically has a tent and table on the left hand side of the entrance for us to check our group in.

      September 21, 2013

  • Ali ☀.

    Hey folks,

    If bringing guest/s, please VERIFY that they show up on your RSVP as a +1 or however many you are bringing.

    WHY? It's important since we have a hard limit as to how many we can have at our bonfire site AND I need to order and pay for the catered chicken and rolls, a week in advance. FYI - Many MU members in various groups are experiencing issues trying to update their guest count for pay in advance events since MU.com made some recent software changes. Thanks!
