      That's so funny, Julie...those are the exact words I was going to write to you. But you warrant a compliment unique unto yourself, so I'll go w/the slightly dated, but still cool in a 'Mad Men' sorta way: "You're a gas!" :)

      1 · June 24, 2013

    • Julie

      I'll take it! As long as it's not "you smell like gas!" I'm good for any compliment! Hee Hee Hee!

  • Julie

    Fun! It's always a kick to hang out with this group and we had several new faces, so that made it even better! The band of course, is always spot on! I didn't really like having them so far above the dance floor (dirt) but dancing under the trees...pretty cool!

    June 24, 2013

    • Julie

      P.S. As I look at the RSVP's I realize how many people I didn't meet! Darn!!

    I hope you all are carpooling - parking is limited if I remember correctly. There may be a after party at the Half Penny - Flextone are playing tonight. They were a big hit at the Oregon Gardens Brewfest earlier this year. See you all this evening.

    • Shannon

    I was finally able to contact Ken at the vineyard. We have the 3 picnic tables reserved on the end when you first come in, by the fire pit, food tent, and wine/beer tent. The space is open so we can use lawn chairs. I encourage them because the tables will not hold us all. The picture on here is of the area. For you new people it will be easy to find us. ; )

    2 · June 19, 2013

    • simon

      sounds good, I can help keep the fire going. So I guess I need to bring my own lawn chair?

      June 19, 2013

  • Bobbi

    Do they provide firewood ? If not I can bring some

    June 19, 2013

      I called them last year about something, left my name and number and they called me back. Just a thought, in case you haven't left your name/number.

    I checked on their web page. It says the gates open at 6:30 and music starts at 7:00. I would suggest you get there by 6:30 for places to sit near the dance dirt...

    This venue is outside in the vineyard under big douglas fir trees. Aannddd last year they had bonfires at each event. No bad seats because the bands stage is about 10 feet up the hillside.
