    We have finalized details.

    Date: June 13

    Time: 10-3

    Where Cedartown, Ga

    We will post directions a little later.

    We will be offering Hamburgers, Hotdogs, Chips, Drinks, Snacks at a modest cost for lunch.

    If you have a tent/canopy it would be a good idea to bring that to set up.
    I will be getting some items to Raffle and possibly do a Silent Auction. I will look into a Charity to donate proceeds too.
    I have a couple tables we can set up too.

    I would like to get a rough head count, it would be nice to let James know how many of us Chicken Nuts he can expect, also for food planning purposes.

    I have already Spoken to a T-Shirt Maker (the Transfers) about coming and setting up, she would need electricity, so I will leave that up to James, if he wants to allow us to suck up some watts.

    Any suggestions/feedback is welcome.

    I personally would like to see this be a success and enough participation so that we can do this at least twice a year.

    We have talked about it and would like very much for some of you who craft to bring your handi-crafts and set up for people to browse. We think this will add to interest and more to enjoy [​IMG]
    Let us know ahead of time and you will have to provide your own tent and table.

    I am working on putting together items for a Raffle and a Silent Auction. We are looking for a Rescue for Chickens/Animals of some sort to donate proceeds to.

    We will likely have some feed, also putting together some "baskets" of items, Gardening, Chicken related, Cooking

    Any suggestions for items you wouldlike to see in the Raffle and Auction let either me or Pumpkinpup know.

    If enough interest, I might see if the Purina Reps would come and do a "seminar"

    I am very excited about this! I'm making some hand painted chicken decor items and will try and think of some other things I can take.
    I made this plaque/key rack for another BYC member. It is a good example of the type things I plan on bringing.

    I will also have some tubs of Food Grade DE to sell.
