For those who have been before, the plan is the same as past years. For those who have not, or if you need a little refresh…

  • Upon arrival pay committee member at the gate before picking your parking (and picnic) spot for the day in the field.
  • Setup camp however you want – picnic tables, gazebos, garden umbrellas are all fine.
  • Food and drink can be whatever you choose to bring. If you choose to bring a BBQ please ensure you light and look after it safely. Please do not place BBQ’s directly onto the ground as you may scorch the grass.
  • Bocce rounds and which teams need to be ready as well as other events will be announced via loud speaker so keep your ears open for any calls.
  • Unfortunately, dogs will not be permitted in the field.
  • Please remember to park close together, we want to make sure there’s room for everyone!
  • Finally, when you leave, please take all litter with you.
