Dry/Wet: The site is absolutely Dry, no exceptions at all, and anyone caught with alcohol will be removed from site.
Ground Stakes: Due to shallow irrigation lines, the site owners ask that no stakes be driven into the ground. Mundane popups are ok, but period pavilions cannot be set up. Sandbags, or other alternatives to stakes, must be used if setting up a shelter on the grounds. We apologize for any difficulties this may cause.
