    VA, 3rd Annual Grayson Highlands Fall Festival, Sept 27-30

    Welcome all to the 3rd Annual Fall Festival Hang at Grayson Highlands State Park, Virginia. This begins the official planning thread. If you have not attended before, the Fall Festival is mountain music, crafts, old time living history activities, and LAST but not LEAST, the annual pony sale from the Grayson Highlands/ Mt Rogers area. The park has graciously provided the group camp site at no cost to HF members again. For that privilege, we provide hammock demonstrations on Saturday during the festival. Bring your extra stuff and help explain how we rock!!!!

    Depending on how many folks attend, we may have a RAFFLE again this year from which we donate proceeds to the Friends of Grayson Highland State Park.

    Once a few folks get on board, we will set up an attendees list and begin the food planning. Don't miss the great cooking and fellowship. Also, this year the Park has let us camp through Sunday night if anyone is interested in staying over until Monday.

    LD Cakes pray for sunshine this year.

    Update: Here's two Google Docs sheets for Attendees and Meal planning:

    Hope to attend. Made the first 2.

    Talked to a Ranger last year who told us about a person who bought one of the ponies and transported the pony home in their car, yes in the car....I would hate to see the inside of that car after that trip.

    Hope you can make it Tim. The hang there last year was my first and I really appreciated the help you and the rest of the group gave me as a NOOB. I was hooked on hammocks after that. I will be attending this year if at all possible.
