Wanted Speyfair workers

Tolt McDonald Park Carnation Washington

I will need some help staring at 9:00 am Friday October 27, 2006 I will have my Hospitality trailer set up adjacent to the service road at the south end of the park. To avoid confusion please park where we park for Saturday on the River and walk though to park on service road to the campground.

The two major jobs will be putting up the canopies for the vendors and laying out the distance-casting course in the river. Some people will need waders.

We would hope to have all the work done by 1:00 P.M. so we can start qualifying rounds for the Speycasting Competition.

Attached find pdf map of the Campground

The Hospitality Trailer will be located on Spot 11
Vender will be under Canopies in front of spaces 10 and 11.
All and all it looking to be a good show.

Thanks for the Support
