    Chickenstock 2010!
    Saturday, August 7th, 2010!! This is an all day event. Last year we had some people that showed up around 7:30 am and People started leaving around 5 pm or so. Please plan to be here early if you are selling birds. And for those shopping for birds, the earlier you are here the more birds there will be to choose from.
    This year, I think things will go much smoother since we have 2009 under our belts.
    This could very well be the biggest Chickenstock in the country, make sure you get signed up!

    Please be sure to post things you will be bringing, selling, swapping, donating, etc so the main page can get updated. I think this will make it easier since people won't have to read through the entire thread to see what will be here. Last years thread was quite large![/i]
    Rob will be shuttleing everyone's stuff back to the woods with his little tractor and pbirdhaven's 4x6 trailor if you need help. Just pull into the field and park and Rob should be able to meet you at your vehicle to load up, Just notify the parking attendants or flag Rob down. We are doing this because of limited accessability to the woods and our driveway is very narrow.

    -Hog Roast-
    Hays and Sons Complete Restoration has graciously donated a hog and one of my co-workers is letting us use his hog roaster

    Nifty has offered the use of the BYC Banner!!! [​IMG] I would like to thank him for BYC's generosity!

    Everyone keep in mind this will be a family event and a great way to meet fellow chicken addicts!

    Please feel free to bring eggs, chickens, ducks, rabbits, plants, seeds or anything else you would like to swap, sell or donate!

    I would like to be able to serve the main menu food by 2pm, drinks and snacks will be available all day.

    Swap/sale/free items
    If you are bringing swap or donation items, I would like you to be here as early as possible so that we can get those setup for everyone to see.

    Please bring lawnchairs for you and your family, I have a lot of tables just not many chairs!

    Games, Contests and Activities to be announced
    If you would like to host a contest, please PM me what contest it is and what time you would like to have it, who will be involved and if a prize will be donated.
    Greatest distance traveled challenge

    Raffle Tickets can be purchased at the raffle table

    Each item will have a container for tickets, tickets will be purchased and will be placed in the container specific to that item. When it is time to announce the winner of that particular item, one ticket will be pulled from the container and the winner will be announced. You must be present to win or have someone stand in for you but they MUST have your ticket in hand.

    as well as many suprises!

    Please keep in mind, some items will be for the raffle and some as prizes!

    I have decided that anyone wanting to bring a chicken related item will be either auctioned off or if we have several items, we will hold a silent auction. All proceeds will benefit the American Cancer Society. Monetary donations welcome.

    I encourage everyone to bring a camera if you can. I will have mine and plan on taking a lot of photos. We will also have nametags so we can put a face with a name. We will have a guest sign-in area so please stop there first!

    Anyone wishing to camp will have access to our restrooms and kitchen! We have 4 acres which is mostly wooded and ideal for camping. There are firepits and plenty of wood. Rob can run electricity if needed. Make sure you PM me so I know how many to expect or if you have questions.

    1.) pbirdhaven
    2.)Carole AM
    4.) emvickrey

    As a safety and bio-security measure, all animals must be in cages! We will provide ground covering to make sure everyone is safe. Dogs that you wish to swap are welcome but please make sure someone is interested first. All animals will have a shaded area and access to water, make sure to bring food and waterers for your pets. You may also want to make sure, in advance, your animals are free of lice and mites. For those looking to take animals home, please make sure you are prepared. Hand sanitizer will be readily available to those inspecting animals.

    Depending on the number of people attending, I may need help with organization, feel free to PM me if you would like to volunteer and thanks!!
    Here are a few areas we need help with
    Parking-We need a few guys to voulunteer to help Rob get folks parked. It will only be for one hour per person until the traffic dies down.
    Sign In Booth-We need a few volunteers to take turns at the sign in table to get folks signed in, give them a nametag and direct them to the festivities.
    Secondary Grill-We need 1 or 2 people to volunteer to cook items on the secondary grill.
    Food Organizer-We need 1 maybe 2 people to volunteer in directing folks where to put food, drins and paper goods.
    Pinata Organizer-I need 1 person to volunteer to gather the children for the pinata and allow each child 1 swing until the pinata is toast!
    Clean up-Any volunteers for clean up will be accepted and greatly appreciated. Many hands make light work and last year went great!!Videos-I will need 1 maybe 2 volunteers to keep a few videos going throughout the day.

    Keep in mind, you won't miss a thing by volunteering and it will help us out a great deal.

    Chickenstock, for us, requires a lot of work and planning, there is a lot that goes on that no one sees or knows about. I don't want to sould like we do it all, that is impossible but we want to make sure we can enjoy the day just as much as you!

    Parking will be in the lot next door! I know I said not to park there but we have resolved all issues with the neighbor and they graciously insisted that we use their lot for parking! We will have signs up and an event organizer assisting with parking. If you would also like to set up a tent or booth to sell items, please feel free to do so. PM me if you have questions. Anyone needing to drop off items, birds or people, please pull into our driveway for unloading only and park your vehicle as soon as your vehicle is unloaded.

    I know there are quite a few dog enthusiasts out there that want to bring along their pets but I have come to the decision that it may not be best for the meetup. I am sure you all have nice friendly dogs but things happen and I would hate that it could have been prevented so I ask that you please not bring your pet dogs. This is not only for your dogs protection but for the protection of the other guests livestock. Also, everyone who brings livestock must have them in cages at all times unless your animal is being inspected. I hope you all understand that this is not a personal decision but it is a decision that would be best for everyone. I hope this doesn't keep anyone from attending, that is not my intent. I just want to have a good time and focus on our chickens!! Feel free to PM me if you have any further questions!

    [​IMG] Count me in for this year's Chickenstock! I'll bring my pasta salad again, and start working on the candy jars.

    If Shelley has her car fixed she can meet up with me in Louisville and we can go from there. If she doesn't have her car fixed by then, guess I'll just have to go down there and get her. Can't have her missing out on all the fun! [​IMG]

    I'll bring the three coolers again as well.

    Got it on my calendar! Let me know what you need me to do--you'll probably have a better idea as time goes by. Food is a given, so that will definitely be on my list. Last year I brought several 2-liter sodas, cups, and party mix; those seemed to go pretty well, so should I plan on that again?
