Marble rules are posted: here's the link: http://www.landofmarbles.com/marbles-play.html

There are suppose to be porta poties and tables by the weekend.

I have badminton supplies, will set up a marbles playing area, and have board games. I'm sure I can find other lawn games too, but would appreciate it if others bring their own.

I have a barbecue grill and will be bringing it. It looks like the weather is going to cooperate!

Ben found a bag of marbles while we were packing that he'll bring, but we don't have any outdoor games to contribute. We'll bring Apples to Apples in case there is a freak storm that forces everyone inside for board games, lol.

No horseshoe pit. But I am bringing a badminton net and stuff. If this wind keeps up, everything is going to blow away!

Can you fire those things in the city and not get arrested?

How about lawn darts? I used to have a set around here somewhere. I used to love those things.


OK, I am joking about bringing them but I did have fun with them when I was a kid.

Why would that happen. Lawn darts are great fun. Or am I missing some innuendo? It's hard telling with you people.

Probably not. I do an occassional blast from my home here on 3 Mile Pond. One time I did it a friend of mine who lives on the Albion/China line called to tell me he heard it "loud and clear" so I certainly won't bring it tomorrow!:)

I think probably somewhere in the world some kid once took one to the top of the head so they got banned by big brother. The world used to be so dangerous ya know. so many people killed by lawn darts and baby turtles before the gubment put a stop to all those dangerous thing.

LT you are right. Folks did get injured and the CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) recalled them ages ago. Can't sell recalled items.......

Not to mention the ones who are now geocaching. I heard there are a couple in the Bangor area but that may be a rumor started by a thread hijacker.

I went down to check on the pavilion and area that we are holding the event. There is a porta-pottie and tables, as promised, but there are only 6 picnic tables. I recommend bringing your own chairs if you wish to lounge.

I am bringing a barbecue grill.

We had a good time too. Would have liked to stay longer but it was a long weekend for both of us!

Sorry I didn't make it. 50 new kayak caches were published up in Guilford so I spent Saturday and Sunday getting them all. Sunday I kayaked 16.7 miles in 9 hours for 39 caches. I will try to get to the next event though.

The event was great but I can see your desire to get out on the water on such a nice day!

Lee and I really had a great time at the four events we went to. We really have a great group here. Really great - everyone give yourself a pat on the back! Lee really appreciated all the kind comments she received. As a rule I would say so many events at one time is overkill but it gave me time to catch up with people I missed at the event just before, so it worked out very well! It would have been fun to meet up at Portland and Manchester, too, but I'm all wore out as it is!
