Hi all,
We have been invited to have a table in the DNR area again. It is on August 21st and as of last year we included a Meet & Greet to make it an event.

Andrewmcc will be in Scotland for 2 weeks, so I am looking for some volunteers to help man the table. We need 4 in the morning and 4 in the afternoon. This year the I believe the tickets to the fair that the DNR have usually provided will not be available, so you will have to take advantage of it being thrifty Thursday,

Please PM me if you have questions or would like to help out PM me.

Are you getting some good response for the State Fair booth?

I will not be able to volunteer.

I do have the MnGCA signage, pamphlets, misc handouts, etc.

PM and we'll arrange a transfer of stuff. (I will be out of town 8/1 - 8/11.)

Forgot the 21st is the first day of the fair & took day off to go to a Twins game with Son #1 (aka "He who shall not be mentioned on FB"). Hopefully next year stars/planets will align & I will volunteer again.

Sorry for the silence, I have been swamped with other projects.
I have the tent, the signage and some demonstration items and am planning to be there around 9:00. The DNR tent is open from 10:00 - 4:00 which is our official time too. We should be able to set up in 15-20 minutes so help just before 10:00 for setup and just after 4:00 for tear down would be appreciated. Many thanks for those who signed up for shifts at the booth. Mornings should be 9:30 - 1:00 and afternoons 1:00 to 4:30 but we have enough volunteers to be fairly flexible. Thanks again for all your interest and patience and I look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!!
