801 Gage Rd, Tunbridge, VT, USA (Map & Directions)
turtlegirl and I are having our annual bash on 18 August this year and wanted to extend an invite to MeFites who may be interested.
The party will be an all-day affair (2pm - ?) to let people drift by when it is convenient to them, but it also helps us as we have limited parking. Out-of towners are welcome to pitch a tent — or to crash on the floor — on a first-come, first sleep basis. We can provide a list of somewhat local lodging options if need be.

We'll probably have a couple of kegs of homebrew made by myself or by members of my local club, as well as some bottled beers, and other beverages. The propane grill will be available too. Locals are encouraged to bring side dishes, snacks, drinks, etc. Out-of-towners can something if they feel a need. Anything to share would be welcomed! Also consider bringing a blanket or a lawn chair. In the evening we'll make a fire so s'mores, etc. can be had.

For the second year, we will have a live band! Local bluegrass/folk/rock band, Wool (appropriate name!) will be playing a few sets throughout the day.

Still tentative, but we are also hoping to renew our wedding vows sometime during the day! 2012 marks our tenth year of marriage.

If you are interested in attending:
1) NO PETS. Sorry. With the llamas we can't have dogs around. Seriously, don't bring them.
2) Please carpool if you can.
3) Bring any acoustic instruments you may have!

Hope to see folks.

More information about us and the farm can be found on our website.

If we're not in California celebrating my brother's birthday while he works on The Sing Off, I will try to bring bahngerama (mrs. billtron) and dara, who will be 1.85 years old.

We'd love to see you all, billtron! Bring an instrument too, please!

Just a heads-up that all beds and couches are now spoken for. There is still floor space if folks bring sleeping bags and room for small tents on the property. Looking forward to seeing many of you!

If anyone is organizing a car from Boston I might be interested, but I have no way of getting there otherwise. Sounds fun though!

Congrats to Terrapin and Turtlegirl on the renewed nuptials! It was good to see everyone, enjoyed the fun and brews, and had a great time. We should definitely plan another meet-up in the fall.

Thanks to all who attended! turtlegirl and I really appreciated seeing so many familiar and new faces!

I never got around to taking any photos, so hopefully others did and will share them.

Eideteker, I am waiting for the epic songs. Maybe something about how you made my toilet overflow? And skorgu can write one about how he helped me go over my bandwidth limit? ;)
