I will be bringing two large blue plastic tarps to ensure dry seating for attendees but if you have a tarp, mat or blanket of your own then please feel free to bring along as I am unable to gauge how much space my two tarps will cover or how many UOB members will show up wanting said space. The temperature does drop a bit during the movie so please plan for that by bringing along a jacket or blanket to help keep yourself (and/or those around you) warm. I will not be providing water or snacks for the group, but you are welcome to bring if you are so inclined.
THE MOVIE BEGINS AT DUSK (9:00pm), AND I WILL HAVE THE TARPS ON THE LAWN ALONG WITH AN "URBAN ON A BUDGET" SIGN STUCK IN THE GROUND ON A STICK ALONG WITH TWO SMALL LANTERNS BY 7:30PM IN ORDER TO CLAIM A DECENT SPACE FOR THE GROUP. FEEL FREE TO JOIN ME EARLY AND HAVE TIME TO SOCIALIZE WITH OTHER UOB MEMBERS.
I will try to save as much space as possible, however, I can not guarantee spaces for folks who show up after 8:00pm. The lawn just fills up way too fast! I WILL BE SENDING OUT A CELL NUMBER TO MEMBERS ON THE ATTENDEE LIST (by 4:00pm) SO THAT YOU ARE ABLE TO CALL IF YOU ARE LOST AND UNABLE TO FIND OUR GROUP. THAT PHONE WILL BE TURNED OFF AT 9:00PM SHARP.
