We will have a free hearing test booth provided by Advanced Hearing Center.  Plus, we will have Noisy Planet booth.

  1. I realize that I should have asked for this info before the ‘last minute’, but was certain that I could easily locate this info in my neatly organized on-line messages.

    I am unable to locate the e-mail message that gave the detailed instructions re: arrival time for booth set-up, extension cord power outlets, etc. Tom is getting a bit stressed as I told him I was certain that I could locate that original e-mail message but have been unable to do so.

    I did receive my maps, and schedule, etc., via USPS; but I don’t know my booth number. However, I’m quite certain I will have easy access to that in the a.m. I do need to clarify what time I should plan to arrive to set-up and organize my booth…. It seems as though the festival begins at 10 a.m.; so I’m thinking that arriving at about 8:00-8:30 would allow enough time.

    I would copy & paste this to avoid sending it flying through,cyberspace on the coattails of Chelle’s message, but I-pads do have their limitations 😉

    Hope to see y’all tomorrow, Rose

    • I know there is parking across the street from the Sanderson Center for people with booths. You should have had a parking pass mailed to you this week and that will get you in the lot. I’m not sure where individual booths are located but it shouldn’t be too hard to find in the morning. We will see you there.
