(Yes, that's this Saturday! ) I will be at the site setting up at 9 AM, any of you who want to show up early to help set up will be greatly appreciated.

We'll be having our event at the 'Lion Lookout' location. The site is outfitted with lots of picnic tables. There's a playground for the kiddos. Bathrooms are conveniently located. Here's a map of the zoo showing the location of the site. Also! We now have Google spreadsheets set up for you to enter what you'll be bringing to the Chickenstock to eat- we'll be doing this year's event potluck style so please plan on bringing enough food items to serve at least 8-10 people.
