    Not sure if I am going to make it. If not, Michael Stamm will be your host. (I posted this event per his request.)

      Last year, I believe there was one food truck, but it didn't stay the full time.

    You'll know me by my comfortable clothes. I try wearing tight jeans ... but just can't pull it off :-)

    Here is my $0.02 worth, as I kinda sorta suggested this to Cindy and Clark for posting to the group:
    One year there were food and drink vendors; Another year there were no food and drink vendors, but there are places nearby on 6th Street;
    one year it rained, the spectators left, and after a long delay they held the PunOff in the hotel across the street;
    City Park rules---I have seen coolers and dogs on leashes;
    Last year the light rail line did not run during the day (sigh, I can walk to the Kramer Station and the downtown station is right across the street);
    The early arrivals (myself, Valerie in years past) get spots in the shade (stage left); Lawn chairs are common, as are sitting on blankets; The bleachers be polite...bleachers.
    Last year I was able to save space for about eight people. I will wear my green Michigan State shirt for people who don't know me; and
    There ihas always been a used book sale.

    I have never been but I heard great things about it. It is rather long range but I'll put it down for now via RSVP, subject to any disruptions in the force.

    Two parrots are sitting on a perch. One says to the other, "Do you smell fish?"
