This year’s Fennboree is just over a couple weeks away. Sacha has kept everyone up-to-date on the Saturday activities, and here’s the latest for Friday and Sunday:
The group pavilion is not available to reserve for Friday. Unfortunately, a youth group has it reserved for the day. EEKs, kids! But do not fret. Thomas Walker has graciously agreed to host the Friday evening campfire and social at his site, which is #47 along the main road. We as a group are really in luck because this is a giant, over-sized site with oodles of parking along the road. You can see in the photo below there’s a ton of space around the fire-pit. I will provide firewood and ingredients for smores. Those of us who have lawn chairs will bring as many as we can. This event is open to everyone…all campers, local Santa Feans, and those out-of- towners who are staying in hotels. Alcohol is allowed (and suggested by me), but once again NO GLASS anywhere. Tom and I have generators for anyone who needs power for a blender, coffee maker, etc. (There’s a picnic table under the roof.) Everyone must bring there own beverage… and any snacks you may like to share. (And lawn chairs if you have one.) Forrest will try his darnedest to attend…I asked him to tell tales of his youth and he said NO. We’ll see…Let’s all gather here starting around 6:00 pm, if you are interested, or show up whenever.
Sunday morning’s brunch is still scheduled from 8 or 9 am until whenever. The #2 group shelter has been reserved for our group so plenty of parking for those who would like to attend. Once again, this event is open to everyone…I’m supplying the bacon, pancakes, syrup, orange juice, and 3 bottles of champagne for mimosas (will not be in glass bottles, and each person over 21 yrs of age has to pour their own champagne so I’m not legally accountable). I don’t know how to make coffee, so anyone who wants coffee, tea, hot chocolate should bring their own. There is water available at the shelter, and once again, Tom and I will provide generators if power is needed. We can boil water in pots on top our gas stoves, as well. Forrest isn’t saying for sure whether or not he will attend this event.
I have been in a sign-making frenzy lately so I can place signs strategically where needed to help people find us: Since the campsite I will be staying at is first come, first served, I won’t know until the last minute what site I will have, so look for this, if you try to find me:
Hopefully, I can get one of the three sites beside the Group Shelter #2 where most of the events will take place.
I also made a couple signs to direct people to the Group Shelter #2 (pavillion) for the Saturday Pot-Luck and Sunday brunch so look for these:
I also will make one for Thomas Walker’s site #47 to direct folks there for the Friday night campfire and social.
If anyone plans to attend either of these two events, could you please make a comment, and if you are bringing anything (like a lawn chair), or if you have any ideas to make it better.
Also, Forrest has requested we cancel the hat contest since we believe there isn’t enough interest. Maybe something else will pop up in the meantime…
And don’t forget about the Fenn Shrine that DesertPhile created for the very first Fennboree. It will be staged first thing Saturday in the Group Shelter for persons to contribute to, or just contemplate, and ponder…
See some of you soon. Cynthia
