Friday, April 11 -

3-3:30 we will meet and establish a group area. I will bring 3 yellow ballons ( hope they let me?) I generally like to set up on the right towards the rear facing the stage. I will also email RSVP's with my phone number at 10 am Sat morning.

BRING BLANKETS,  CHAIRS ... I am bringing bottled water, soda and snacks in a backpack;  there is no mention that these irtems are not allowed?  I recommend that any staying throughout the day do the same.

NO... coolers, bicycles, pets, recording devices, or alcohol are allowed in the park. Also, no umbrellas or shade canopies may be set up in front of the main stage area.

3:30-4 those who want can walk around and check out the vendors, play frisbee...whatever ya want. 

I am hopeful that we will be able to retain the same spot as people come and go throughout the day. 

Feel free to go early, 1st show Selwyn Birchwood starts at 12:30 

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT INDICATING WHAT TIME YOU WILL BE THERE SO WE CAN LOOK OUT FOR YOU.
