    If anyone is going from the MB area and wants to carpool let me know on here. I can fit 4 others pretty comfortably. I'll check back in before I leave around 5:30.

    So I think there will be people trickling in all night depending on when folks get off work. I'll be there fairly early, and we will find some sort of permanent spot to sit down and call home base. If I recall there should be a food tent and we might try to grab a table. Check this page before you come for the exact location. I will also have this little blinky red LED light for anyone that is new to help identify the group; easier than trying to match faces to photos in the dark.

      There is an entrance/visitors area to start the gardens that could be a good meeting area.

    I have an extra ticket for whoever hasn't gotten one yet for $9. Anyone want it?

    I changed the time to 5:30. I HIGHLY recommend you get there at this time or before, if you can. The line of cars waiting to get in usually extends all the way out onto 17 and the police already have signs and things up and are out there directing traffic.

      I understand the traffic and line but we may have to do this in shifts. I don't typically get home from work until about 5:30.

    I am probably going to get there around 5 if anyone is interested in going earlier.

    Date is scheduled - Time can be changed if need be - I tried to make it a bit later for those who may work late or live further away - let me know if that is okay with everyone!

      We may want to plan for earlier because we may end up sitting in traffic if we try to go at 7:30.

      Traffic where? What time then? I was just trying to think of people's work schedules

    So it is getting closer. Any suggestions on a date?!
