Bonfire on a horse farm

(pic from last year, click here for high res)

All are welcome. Look for an old red barn and white fences. Please park around the U-shaped driveway, or on the north shoulder of Joy Road. Bring a folding chair and dress warmly. We'll start the fire around 8:00!!!

Call if you get lost:[masked] (*delete extra 1).

Optional: bring drinks and snacks to pass around the fire, or something to cook on a stick (hotdogs and buns, s'more stuff). I'll have a table setup. If you bring anything to share, please set it on the table.

If you have a carrot or an apple to spare, one of the horses will love you. Don't go in with them, you will be trampled. Also, please don't touch the high-voltage fencing!

There is a porta-potty alongside the barn.


I could also use a few people to show up early for Tough Mudder practice. Here are some events we can try: http://toughmudder.com/obstacles/

ELECTROSHOCK THERAPY
To practice for this we will form a human chain, then I'll grab the 10,000-volt horse fence (joking).

FIRE WALKER
On second thought, let's not practice this one... and please stay out of the pond too!

HOLD YOUR WOOD
There are a bunch of logs I need moved closer to the bonfire area. As a bonus, I'll instruct you in the use of a splitting maul and sledgehammer. Please wear boots and gloves, and safety glasses.

BERLIN WALLS
We actually do have a wall to practice on! It's only 6' right now, but I can quickly make it 8-10' if that's not challenging enough. I can barely scale it at the current height. Wear gloves and watch out for splinters!

If you can show up around 6-6:30 to help get things ready, or to climb the wall, please leave a comment.

    Well, we all know Dylan is a terrific organizer, this time he outdid himself. I can only imagine how much time he must have spent preparing his family property for the event and how much more time he would have spent the day after cleaning up the mess we left. He was up till midnight with rest of us. Thank you Dylan!!!!

    A few lost-and-found items... one pair of sunglasses, one folding chair, two pairs of work gloves, and a black ladies top.

    Not sure if I'm able to attend, but I have a question about dogs. I have a friendly, energetic lab, and I wanted to know if it'd be okay if she came along. She's been in the company of horses before and mostly tried to avoid them.

    • Dylan C.

      On a leash is fine. There may be other dogs, and high-voltage fences. Hope you can make it.

    April 26, 2013

  • Dawn

    Hi Dylan. My rsvp is for my friend Laura just so you know I didnt double book. I may be able to come early to but not sure yet.

    April 26, 2013

  • Dylan C.

    Can anyone come out early? I could use some help moving logs and dragging branches, setting up tables, etc...

    April 25, 2013

    • Dylan C.

      How about 6:30?

      April 25, 2013

    • Vladimir

      O.K.!

      April 26, 2013

  • William L.

    is it ok if me and my girlfriend bring a 6 pack of beer, no biggie if not.

    April 24, 2013

    • Dylan C.

      Yup, you can bring beer for yourself or to share, but everyone needs to be sober when they drive home.

    April 23, 2013

    • Dylan C.

      This will be much hotter than a campfire... might not work out. There is also a grill and plenty of charcoal.

      April 24, 2013

    • Vladimir

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
