Big Changes for 2013:
- Rain Plans! We will have space for events to be held in the event of rain. We will also post tips for camping in rain for those planning on staying overnight in their tents. 2012 has taught us all well...
- Fireworks! We're going to plan them in for 2013: fireworks on both Friday and Saturday night!
- Lower Cost! To encourage more participants in the weekend, and thus more fun for everyone, the new cost of the event will be $10 per person for the entire weekend! This means we're no longer providing food or a feast on Saturday, so please plan accordingly. The whole weekend for $10? Sounds awesome!
