Mine still says start time of 10 am, I think I have -5 one. Eh, close enough.

Those are the parking spots listed on their web site.

I've never done this event before and don't know how much I'll be with you guys because of my plunging.

I don't know how late this thing goes, I'm not planning on staying to long after my plunge because, well, I'll be freezing. Lol. I know that there are 2 main plunges 1pm and 3pm. I'm doing the 1pm but we're waiting until after the mad rush happens and the main crowd gets out of the way before our plunge. So prob more like 1:15. After that I'll really want to change and get WARM food. So we'll most likely be doing an early dinner.

This just in from Ray.

"The event organizers have been unreachable over the past week and are not returning my inquiries. Last I heard they were willing to give us extra passes for having a plunge team, but that has not been confirmed.

I don't think that trooping this event is going to be as successful as I had hoped, sorry to say.

Not to mention that I just learned of the return of alcohol sales at the event. I love a drink, but I don't like drunks around my costume.

I am, however, looking forward to hanging out an plunging with the team.

More on this story as it develops..."


So, since the Imps can't ride the shuttle buses in their armor, it looks like they won't be trooping this event with us. But because we can sit down, this troop is still open to us, (and any Imps who can sit down). Laughing

Re-posting from my post on OLG boards:

OK, so I went to the Team Captain Rally tonight at SOMD HQ.

Here's some good news! Kellie and Scooter both won random drawings for parking passes! Also, I won a door prize drawing for a third pass. The best news, however, is that I confirmed with the organizer that we will be given 4 parking permits for our troops to use to get personnel and gear in and leave our vehicles there. This is good news.

I will be having a conversation with Jackie tomorrow to try and lock-down a changing area and a booth or table somewhere.

As far as the alcohol situation goes, I do not anticipate it getting out of hand. There is a designated 'beer tent' which we will not be near. There is still not alcohol allowed into the park or in the lots (no tailgating) and DNR police will be on hand to cite for open containers and drunk/disorderly.

I think that if I still have people willing to troop, and if my demands are met tomorrow, we will be good to troop.

I need a confirmation now of those willing to troop. Also, I would like to know if anyone still has a van or bus available to move stuff around.

We will be able to get into the park at 8:00am on 1/28, so I want to waste no time setting up.

Questions? Concerns?

BTW,

You guys don't have to worry about letting me know who's trooping, but if there are still vans available to us, i really need to get with you. I also need to know if anyone has a table, a canopy or regular tent, heaters, etc.

Thanks!

I can provide a portable battery/inverter if needed. And my job is letting me borrow a couple of heaters!

My team plunge time has been switched to 3pm due to the scary number of plungers at 1pm. I still plan on getting there around 10am, but we have not been given a table or tentage. So, the heaters would be awesome, but we have no where to put them.

Ray won an extra parking pass, so if someone wants it, they can meet up with us somewhere before the event and we can fit more people into their car, instead of having to ride the shuttle. Let me know if anyone wants it.

I also have a parking pass with room for 1 more comfortably.

The Plunge is tomorrow, see you guys there. Smile Also, we're doing the group dinner thing afterwards. So please let me know if you are interested in doing dinner so I can add you to the list. Can't wait to see everyone tomorrow. I'm really nervous.
