2017 Spring Fling Sign-Up!

7 years ago

Time has gotten away from me so I
apologize for the delay in this sign-up thread but the upside is…..IT’S ONLY 3

Our Spring Swap for 2017 will be held
Saturday, April 29, 2017 from 11:00 AM (or when you get here) until 2:00 PM (or
whenever you need/want to leave). Please mark your calendars!! This
get-together is to exchange extra plants, materials, share stories and tips,
attach a name to a face and share a pot luck lunch! We hold a drawing for a “door prize” exchange
which can be ANYTHING garden, growing, yard or landscape related. It can be
purchased or handmade. Those that
contribute are eligible for the drawings.
Participation isn’t mandatory, but it’s a LOT of fun. We draw for gifts
by numbered ticket.

Children are welcome (including 4-legged
ones) but please note we have no fences and the road on which we live is a busy
thoroughfare. It’s okay to bring your
besty or other family too. I also suggest you wear comfortable, sturdy shoes.
We have LOTS of sand out here…as well as stickers.

What do you bring? Any extra plants,
rootings or seeds, extra pots, seed trays, bulbs, etc. If you’re new and don’t have anything, don’t
worry - just bring yourself! Bring a
chair for yourselves or blanket, sunscreen
and your contribution to the meal if you’re going to join us for lunch. We will provide the tableware (plates,
napkins, cups, eating utensils, etc.) as well as pulled pork, , ice, tea and
water. Arrangements have been made for the delivery of a Porta-Potty. Same
company so you know it’s clean. Any contribution to help off-set that cost is
very much appreciated. We will have a
“Potty Fund” can nailed to a tree for that purpose.

Where? Same place as the last several years.
We have a couple of acres in rural NE Norman with plenty of parking. Gathering
will be out under the Redbuds. We are about 10 to 15 minutes from either I-35
or I-40, out between Lake Stanley Draper and Lake Thunderbird. I have tables
for the food and other needs. There will be clearly marked areas for
“Offerings” to share, “Door Prizes” and “Pre-arranged trades” for those that
arrange for specific items. In fact,
those signs are still up!

So if you’d like to attend, hoover your
cursor over my name and you will see the option to “follow”. I will be notified
by e-mail and then I will “follow” you. This is how I’m going to gather everyone’s
e-mail so I can send you a map to the event.
If we are already “following” each other and you need a “refresher map”,
speak up too! I will only be able to
send PDF maps to personal emails. They
can’t be sent from here. As before,
please do not disclose the exact location publicly. It’s one thing if someone joins us by
mistaking the event as a yard sale….but let’s not encourage any “crazies”.

Use this thread to let us know you’re
planning to attend along with what you might be bringing as far as things to
share and things to eat. Speak up if
there’s something in particular that you’re looking to find because chances are
– someone has it!
