WELCOME TO THE HAMILTON FAMILY FARM - PRE-ARRIVAL LETTER –
PLEASE REMEMBER WE ARE HAVING THIS EVENT OUTDOORS FOR EVERYONE’S SAFETY … WITH ALL THE TENT SPACE AND OUTDOOR SEATING AVAILABLE YOU CAN VISIT AND REMAIN A SAFE.
PLEASE DRESS FOR A CAUSUAL EVENT.
FISHING & SWIMMING AVAILABLE.
As you can appreciate, the planning of an event at your home for a 4-day event is a major undertaking.
PARKING…There is adequate parking…. look for signs WHEN YOU ARRIVE. We can handle 80 cars.
Please do not park on lawn directly in front of the house as it could easily damage the sprinkler system.
RV’S…As you enter the driveway from the street, immediately on the right is the RV parking area in the first field. Reg Bruce is handling that area and will provide the best “BOONDOCKING” experience possible.
As you come up the driveway, you may park on either side on the grass up to where the driveway split. AFTER THE SPLIT, PARK ON THE RIGHT.
Up at the LEFT split in the driveway, please do NOT park on EITHER SIDE as we do not want to impede PASSENGER DROP-OFF OR delivery/catering vehicle movement.
If you need to drop off near the main tent area, please drive up the driveway near the garages. We will valet park your car if needed. There will also golf cart to pick you up at your car or RV.
SUNDAY MORNING BRUNCH
Coffee available at 0800 with BRUNCH starting at 1000.
OBTW…. just to remind you…. THIS IS A FARM. It is a gentleman’s farm and pretty fancy by farm standards, but it still is a farm. As a result, there inherit hazards.
We have worked to resolve any issues, but he ground may be uneven on some places. Please be aware until you are familiar with the terrain.
There is also Poison Ivy around the farm. We have been working extremely hard to eliminate it in areas that will be in use during the reunion. In ANY lawn areas that are cut short, the Poison Ivy is gone. In ANY areas that the grass is not short you must consider the possibility of it being present. If you are not familiar with what it looks like, either get familiar PRIOR to arrival or have someone that is familiar show you what it looks like. Please understand that we have 42 acres and removing it from that vast an area is virtually impossible.
There are a total of 6 potties. There are two down in the RV parking area….1 Male and 1 Female designated potty.
The 4 potties located up near the house (a short distance from the tent) 1 handicap and 1 regular for males & 1 handicap and 1 regular for females.
The Porta Potty people will come and service the potties on Saturday morning and any RV’s that wish black/gray water dumping. Their charge is $35 paid to the driver.
PLEASE BRING A 3 x 5 PHOTO OF YOU WHEN YOU WERE YOUNG (MIDDLE SCHOOL OR YOUGER) AND PUT YOU PICTURE ON THE BOARD WHEN YOU REMIVE YOUR NAME TAGS
DRIVING AT NIGHT
We understand there are those that (for various reasons) do NOT wish to drive in the dark. Whether it be due to unfamiliar roads or difficulty seeing at night OR DRINKING… IT IS OK … WE ARE SETTING UP A “WE WILL DRIVE YOU TO THE HOTEL”
So, we are planning to drive your vehicle to the hotel with you in it and shuttle the drivers back to the farm. We hope this eases any concern you might have with events that run until it is already dark outside.
We have purchased some wine. Since there are so many different wines and wine drinkers there is a slim chance that we might have something you like. If there is a particular wine that is your favorite, then we would suggest you bring it with you. As far as hard liquor is concerned, we are not doing that…period. BRING YOUR OWN.
