    Is the meeting spot at Redwing picnic area or Buzzard's Roost? Still between 8:30 and 9:00? I doubt I will make the 7:30 breakfast - would have to leave my house by 6:15. I'm on the web site and it says there are free shuttles from either the bath house parking lot or Whipp's Ledges parking lot. There are also bus tours of Hinckley ledges on the hour, but it doesn't say where they originate.

    March 16, 2013

    • Becky

      We're meeting at Buzzard's Roost, Pam.

      March 16, 2013

      I'd have to leave by 6:15, as well. Someone Please email me with a ph # so I won't get lost. Haven't been there in years, never for festival. Thanks.

      March 3, 2013

    • Becky

      I'm probably going to do the Buzzard's Roost. If there's no green beer there then I might gravitate over to the Dougout! LOL We'll leave it open to both places and see where the wind blows us!
