In case you missed my post last night, the meet is ON! 

Here are a few notes that might help your visit more fun!  


Rain Cover- with the late decision to proceed, unfortunately I wasn’t able to rent canopies as they were all reserved, so if you’d like to bring a pop up canopy or a tarp to put over your table in the yard, please feel free. I’ll have a handful of tarps just in case, however it’s not supposed to rain here

When you arrive- enter our back yard using the gate to the left of the house. Look for a silver and bright orange Pedestal fan in the front yard. 

Parking- we live in a residential neighborhood and each year all of our neighbors put up with this huge influx of cars in front of their homes, so PLEASE be respectful!  Don’t walk on their lawns, don’t part in front of their mailboxes, don’t block their driveways, don’t litter. THANK YOU!

Unloading- There will be no parking in our driveway. It is to be used for unloading only. Please be courteous and move your car as soon as it’s empty. Please save your socializing and wheeling/dealing until after you’ve parked your car. I’ll have orange cones across the driveway- just move them to unload and then please replace them when you’re done

Dutch Auction- last year the Dutch auction was a blast and a LOT of fans changed hands! Here’s the deal- there will be 2 tables dedicated to these fans. Anyone can put fans in the auction. Generally these are the ones you don’t wish to take back home. They must start with a price that’s realistic (no padding the prices). Your name must be on the price tag. Starting at noon, the price drops 10% each hour until they’re all half price !!  So buyers, pick your strategy. Either buy it while it’s there, or gamble that it’ll be there later and buy it at up to half off. 

Food- We’ll be providing food for lunch. Some folks have asked if they can bring anything. The quick answer is YES, we all love sampling your favorite recipes. Specifically we can always use sides, especially if they’re not milk based and won’t spoil in the heat. Also if you have special food needs or allergies, please feel free to bring something you’d like to eat. 

Chairs and tables- we have a lot of seating areas around the yard, and I’ve rented a few folding chairs, but if you’d like to bring your own folding chair please feel free. I’ve rented 15 banquet tables so there should be plenty of table space. If you’d like to bring your own, feel free

Sunscreen and bug spray-  this is an outdoor event and it is still bug season. I plan to spray the yard, but there may be some mosquitoes, though they haven’t been too bad this year. 


I think that’s it!  See you all on Saturday!   Good weather, great friends and tons of fans. Doesn’t get any better than that! 


Cheers, 

Lane and Jeanie
