    Hello peeps! updated with donators and directions to my house!!! 9/25/10 T-SHIRT PHOTOS AT BOTTOM OF POST-PLEASE READ!!! 9/17/10

    EVERYONE

    THIS IS NOT A TWO DAY FUNCTION PLEASE KEEP THIS IN MIND- THE CHICKENSTOCK TAKES PLACE

    SUNDAY ONLY 10-4. THERE ARE A FEW PEOPLE WHO ARE TRAVELING FROM OTHER STATES WITH MOST OF THE BIRDS THAT WILL BE PRESENT AND THEY ARE ARRIVING LATE SAT NIGHT-NOTHING IS GOING ON SAT- iM SORRY FOR THE CONFUSION--I dont know why people think this is starting sat 10-4 and Sunday 10-4---SUNDAY ONLY 10-4.....PLEASE DO NOT SHOW UP ON SAT THINKING THE SALES/SWAPS ARE GOING ON-THEY ARE NOT. I PROMISE -YOU ARENT GOING TO MISS ANYTHING. I THOUGHT I BETTER POST THIS AGAIN BECAUSE PEOPLE KEEP ASKING ME WHEN ON SAT THEY SHOULD COME????

    OCT 3RD -SUNDAY 10-4 THANK YOU FOLKS:)

    OK here goes I will have tasks and jobs for people too-so any help would be totally appreciated.

    I live in WAYYY northern NY in Onchiota 12989 ( Mapquest it to see how far you are from me)
    Sunday-Oct 3rd. Start at 10 am-ending 4pm

    ok all you cant get anymore specific than this here are the photos

    When you get to GABRIELS-you need to take a left/right towards ONCHIOTA--I will post a RED sign with black lettering on both sides of road so you can see it from both directions

    -turns towards ONCHIOTA-it is 6 miles -6- to my mother in laws antique store on corner of ONCHIOTA-we live in a tiny bumpkin town 200-300 people no stores or what not unless you go back to Gabriels-and Gabriels is just a corner store-so If you come into Lake Placid or Saranac Lake and need groceries or what not get it in those two towns ( they are only 15 minutes from my house)

    -You will drive straight-DO NOT TAKE THE BEND IN THE ROAD THAT TURNS TOWARDS THE RIGHT- you will pass a tiny blue house on right-GO SLOW as its right there-I have 2 driveways-please do not come down them unless you have arranged it with me-there will not be turn around areas as you would go through the crowd..LOL

    -First driveway you will see this garage-NOT OURS-our driveway is immediately after that on right
    [​IMG]
    what it looks like down that driveway
    [​IMG]

    you wil see this garage right after that driveway ( OUR GARAGE) yes the mess will be cleaned DH works up there for work
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    from our garage you wil see this-there's alot os road to park on sides please
    [​IMG]
    go a tad further ( 3 seconds) and you will come upon this flower set up at the top of our other driveway
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    There can be parking at the top of that driveway if you can squish as there are 2 turnaround areas up there
    There are miles of parking spots up at the road-since it is soo close to my house please park up there--and please dont block other driveways-my neighbors will hunt me down hahaha
    Heres where everything will take place-you can see where Dh spent the past 2 weekends clearing it out and maoving back the driveway a good 15-20 feet!!
    [​IMG]

PC I ORDERED MEATIES!!! They will be ready to be process chickenstock weekend!!!! 25!!! b]It can be a dirty job too so whoever wants to get their hands dirty should bring a set of junk clothes.

    There are rules about kids on my property-no one else has asked until now so this is perfect timing and Ill repost my rules on the first page 8/29/10
    [/u]

    NO unsupervised kids at anytime unless they are 10 and older-there is water everywhere around me and I dont care how good of a swimmer someone tells me their children are-that scares me and I dont need that uneeded stress of worrying sick over others children.

    There is an enclosed trampoline-no more than 3 children at a time-Supervised by their parents. If you see more than that-Please tell me and I will take care of it or FEEEL FREE to do so yourselves-more than that and I have had and seen children get hurt-

    There is a paddle boat-They may use with an Adult ( not a teenager-an adult)

    There are canoes and life jackets-you may use them-with an adult in it-anyone who goes out into water wears a life jacket- Thems is the rules on this pond-LOL

    There is a cabin with an old pool table in it-they may use that too-

    There is a mule ( quad) this will not be used it will be put away-but in sight

    There is a golf cart-this will not be used-put away but in sight

    No children opening my pens to see/touch/hold my birds-I will chop hands...LOL-seriously I cant tell you how many people who have come over and watched their children chase-trap-throw rocks-tease my birds and say nothing to them--I WILL speak up, without fear, to children and parents.

    Now those who know me know Im am REALLY easy to get along with and I love to have fun-but when it comes to jeapordizing the safety of a child or my birds-
    All my birds will be locked up for the duration of chickenstock so as not to cause any cross contamination or harm to them. So we really shouldnt have to worry about children getting into them:)

    Other than that-just repsect from them and my property-it is really easy as long as all the parents keep an eye on their kids and the kids understand the areaas where they can and cannot go-which I will show people as they come:)

    Thank you for asking and I hope I dont seem too harsh-but I have to be with this many people coming-


    -We need tents-large tents just in case the weather looks bad-Please tell me if you can bring one and we will wait until the last minute to look at the weather forcast deciding if we need all of them:)

    -I will get a sign in book too-I want to see how many came and get opinions for the next one for improvements and what they liked...

    -I will have a section where all animals can go-I DO NOT have a Safe place to house them over night :-( we do have lots of predators and Im so sorry-I do have an upper garage ( Hubby's work shop) I cannot leave that open though as all his tools and such are in there-so Ill make trips with people to put birds in there if needed:) and lock them up for everyone's safety:)

    Looks like you are about 7hrs from me. [​IMG] I'm pretty sure there is no way I can talk DH into driving that far. He'd likely kill me first. [​IMG]

    That's a beautiful area Natalie. I love Lake Placid in the winter, & Keen Valley is incredible. I use to snowmobile in Malone. Friends of mine have a farm house there. You must be pretty close to the Old Military Turnpike? I'd love to take the kids camping up there for the weekend. If my work schedule allows it. That's a great area for a weekend get away.......... For those of you that have never visited the area, Do your self a favor & Go!
