I will be going down the day before to help if they want it. Lorie and i will be there Saturday as well. She will be seven months expecting in May so she may not stick around all day, but i'll be there for the entirety. We would be happy to spend SOME time in the booth!!

I'm not 100% sure about times either.

H'e not online, so can't post here, but his # is (616) 318-6754 if you'd like to give him a call.



See you there!

YES!!

This HAS changed.
I told him he was freaking NUTS and we settled on 7am.
Meet at the registration area.

That's around the block from the gas station at the M 37 north/M 115 intersection.
I don't know the name of the little side street, sorry.

I'm not sure there is a booth.
I think this year it's all about helping the CJs with the event and strengthening relationships.

But we could still use the help! :thumb:

I plan to come, but I'm not sure I'll be much help. I'll do what I can but I have no desire to be standing in a field parking jeeps either. I need to have some fun.

I'll check in and see what I can do, but I just can't make much for promises right now. lol

A couple of hours, a half day, whatever you can do will be more than we would have without you.

Thanks!

Is this list still valid?

Doug, did we get you the time and place soon enough?
Anyone need any more information?

I believe we'll be doing grunt work for the day freeing up the Jeepers for the tasks that involve a greater degree of Liability (yea, that nasty 'L' word).

I think it's just getting folks checked in and parked. Once that's done we're free, although we it would be appreciated if we could continue to help for longer too.

I have read it, just still not sure of my arrival time.

How late are we likely to be needed to work?
When are the festivities over?

Probably til noon or one pm.

Things are happening until after 4-5 pm.
Plenty of time to get in on the obstacle course and the parade.

It doesn't look like I'll be arriving until after 10am. Having to work Friday night doesn't exactly make me want to get up to leave much earlier than 7. lol
