    Hey there - good morning! Just wondering if there will be a hang at the Fall Festival at Grayson Highlands this year? Thanks!

    What Hickery said!
    The group site already has our name on it!

    It wont be long until we start the official planning thread with lots of fun information and the sign up sheets.

    Also, we have been talking about a few ways to improve the Hammock Demo on Sat and even in camp.
    Ideas appreciated.

    For one I plan to make a poster for camp central with the week end's time line...

    Thurs... a few will arrive early to set up. Some may go out for day hikes or overnight backpacking over the weekend
    .
    Fri... many more will show up.
    We do our own meals unless otherwise noted.

    Big Saturday... Group Breakfast
    Festival starts at 10am. A few will go early to set up for the Hammock Demonstration, some will hang around to help clean up after breakfast.
    Some may day hike.

    During the Festival, it's good if at least 3 or 5 hang around the Hammock Demo to answer questions about hammocks from those that stop in and relieve those that spend most of the day at the Hammock Demo.

    Pony Auction at 2pm

    The festival ends at 5pm but some will go back to the group camp to start preparing for the
    Group Supper.

    Following the group supper will be the Raffle
    Lots of fun during the raffle!
    Proceeds will go to Friends Of GHSP and firewood. (unless otherwise noted)

    The group site is provided free because we contribute to the Festival in the Hammock Camping Demo.

    Sunday
    A few leave early but most stick around to eat breakfast, talk and clean up around the group camp.
    Usually, some will go to the restaurant (about a 15 minute ride from camp) to eat breakfast/brunch/lunch.
    From there some will head home while others will go back to camp and the Festival for a while.
    Some will stay Sunday night and leave Monday.

    Let me know if I overlooked anything.
