Wow. So you know exactly how it feels, and then some.
So far, with the exception of the very small class reunion we just had here for free, all of the events have been put on and paid for by other people, including insurance. I don’t know if you read the story about the wedding, but they are taking care of all tents, seating, food, porta-potties, as well as insurance. All we have to do is provide the place, which is, I’m sure, much less than you had to deal with. Also, they were here for one of the fests, and know what kind of mess they can look forward to if the weather takes a turn for the worse… which is a relief to me.
We have not looked into any of those details yet, but know we’ll have to if we decide to do this long-term.
