dates for the 2004 Hepfest are: Friday, Aug. 20, 2004 to
23, 2004. This would mean if you plan on staying from Friday
you need to plan on making sleeping arrangements for 3 nights.
B has been reserved for Friday and Sunday. We will also
be able to
use it for part of Saturday since the people who have already
are celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary and don't plan
on being there the
whole length of the day. They have graciously told Phatress
that we may have
it for the remainder of the day on Saturday after they have
BASIC campsites, for those who are planning on pitching
camping out for the weekend and wish to reserve a campsite
are $8.50(a one
time fee for each campsite that is reserved in advance),
plus $8.00 per
night. In addition...if any changes are made to reservations
a $5.00 fee
will be added. If not reserved the price for a basic campsite
is $8.00 per
night. Following are charges for campsites that have a few
$14.00 a night for a campsite with electric hookups, $15.00
a night for a
campsite with electric and water hookups, $17.00 a night
for a campsite with
electric, water, and sewer hookups. The maximum number of
persons on a
campsite is six, unless the unit is indivisible. Also, there
are limits on
the number of sleeping units you may place on each campsite.
Check with park
staff for current camping policies. A camping day is from
3 p.m. until 3
p.m. the following day. You must arrive within the first
reserved or your reserved site will be released. You must
reservable campsite on your last camping day by 2 p.m. All
are to be paid directly to the campgrounds main office.
Pay by credit card,
debit card backed by major credit cards, check, or money
are currently 3 cabins reserved. Check out times for the
11:00 a.m. Each cabin will sleep 6 people. The price per
night for each
cabin is $150.00, which breaks down to $25.00 per person
each night. They
do not guarantee specific rooms, so what cabins we get will
kind of bed arrangement there is in each one. All three
cabins reserved are
together. The cabins will be on a first come first served
basis, so those
who send in their money will be the first to be guaranteed
a bed. We are
keeping a list of monies received to ensure that this happens.
will be one "planned" meal each day, in the evening.
Each person is
responsible for bringing any food and drinks they will need
day. Phatress had to pay $70.00 out of her pocket to reserve
for the two days we can have it. I have sent her $25.00
to help pay her
back for that out of pocket expense. Anyone who can afford
to pitch in a
few dollars to pay her back the remaining $45.00 would be
Those dollar bills add up quick! In addition to bringing
all food and drink
I feel I will need over the weekend I am bringing a few
extra things to add
into the evening meal kitty. Am going to bring a pound or
two of hamburger,
and a few packages of brats or hotdogs. It would be great
if anyone who can
would bring a little bit extra, like maybe bags of chips,
hot dog and/or
hamburger buns, things like that. We really feel that too
planning would be a pain in the rear to carry out. Other
than the things
listed above, that HAVE to be taken care of, we feel the
only other plan we
all need to arrive at the hepfest with is to plan on having
like the best times are things that just happen....to many
plans seem to be
a setup to fail. Any other ideas would be gladly taken into
so feel free to put forth any suggestions you might have.
clarifies things a little bit, and we will add more info
as it becomes
available, or if necessary.
