THE GOOD NEWS>>>

Kids Art Space needs:

plastic grocery bags
milk jug caps
rubber bands

if you have any of these, let me know and I will come get them from you, or you can bring them to ComFest.

Programs will start being distributed tomorrow.

Volunteers are still needed for clean-up and recycling, safety, and First Aid. If you are CPR certified, please consider volunteering for First Aid.

and some good new for volunteers:

For the first time ever, there were be a volunteers only beer line!! with volunteer tokens, you can go to the Jazz Stage Beer tent and go to the park street side.

Bike Corral info: if you park your bike in the corral you must be out by 11:30. If you are a volunteer and are working, you can keep your bike there till 2:00 a.m.

THE BAD NEWS: (and the part that will make this thread go on forever)

ComFest has adopted a NO BYOB policy. You should start to see some ads tomorrow in the other paper and alive. I will give you the gist of it, it violates our permit, violates some city ordinance, but mostly, it is the trash. The trash and recycling people removed something like 40,000 lbs of recyclable materials last year. Plus, BYOBers for some reason, seem to not be able to find their way to a trash can or recycling bin. The trash and recycling people were there until 6 a.m. or later everyday last year, trying to clean up the park.

So, in a nut shell, if you bring in BYOB, you will either be asked to dispose if it, or be asked to leave the park.

It is what it is.

BYOB
policy

edit: apparently I need to play with my BBCode settings.

seriously, I don't think I'd ever interperet BYOB as Bring Your Own Bottle...o.k. I polled some co-workers and the consensus is Bring Your Own Beer (read:no alc.) is the common interp of BYOB. Clarification RR :?: Who is managing Offramp Fri am :?:
Volunteer beer line :!: :!: :!: :!: I am fukkkkkkkd :!: and by fukkkkkkkd I mean that without a 10 minute wait for beer I have no chance of sobering up slightly in line. ooooooh boyzzzzzzzzzz :shifty: :drool: :whistle:

I'm manning the "Chug Booth" in case you BYOB. Kill it quick and feel the drunk running through your veins. There will be a few beer bongs and Guitar Hero. It will be located at Kevin's apartment (I forget the address), he also goes by "Macguyver of Drugs". Ask around, you'll find it.

You can bring in other beverages, but, if you can, take your trash back out with you, or put your beverages in a reusable container. :idea:

We actually have a station for volunteers to fill water bottles and we will be selling reusable containers with the comfest logo on them at cost for volunteers to reuse.

We are talking about BEER.

Felix opens up on Friday.

Mr. String, you get it! That is a reusable container :wink: But, seriously. I know the beer is pricey and the lines suck, but we have added more taps and changed how the beer tents are being run to try and make them more efficient :pray: , but comfest makes its money from beer sales and we need the $ to put on the party and we also now give grants out to other community organizations with what we have left. Comfest is a good cause.

Uh, yeah. I was quite confused by all of this because I thought the rules have always been this way. That might be why the responders jumped to the strange conclusion that B = Bottle.

ComFest has never enforced the policy. This year, you will either have to dispose of what you brought, or take it out of the park.

So, in other words, Security has been given a directive to enforce the policy?

Here are some helpful orientation videos.

Seriously, though, it's a perfectly reasonable rule that ComFesters should have already been following. It's a real tragedy of the human condition that common courtesy has to be legislated. Such a shame, such a shame.

At the meeting I suggested turning the park into a dump so no one has to haul trash out. You have to cut costs somewhere since this pay to play thing has turned into a goddamn canned food drive.

wow, I just crapped my pants..thats funny..tears man, real tears

Nothing says Community like Zero tolerance and a club to the head.

Should also dictate that no boob should be bared that sits on top a belly of greater size.

No pooping in the yards surrounding the park.

Does anyone know how to clean a mixture of dorritos and snot from your computer monitor?
