Hello all.

I just had a nice talk with Eileen. What a nice person! She told me that there would be no problem for us to have a 20x20 foot place for our maze. And she has hundreds of feet of that rubbery tape. Carolyn and I will buy some wood stripping to make stakes to attach that tape to. I would guess that we'd want about 3 foot stakes, so we'll cut the stripping into 3 foot lengths. And maybe about 5 feet between stakes?? Depending on how many switchbacks we set up, we'll need 100 or more feet of barriers, which works out to about 20 stakes. To be conservative, we'll make 25 or 30.

Carolyn and I will drive past the park to be sure the ground is amenable to having those stakes pounded in. Don't know what else to look for.

Eileen will try to get us a map of the booths a few days before the event. Depending on time and quality of that map, we will make an IVEO map for people to see/feel/hear. Hopefully my Surface computer has a battery that lasts four hours. That would be pretty cool.

Finally, we will have a couple of sighted volunteers helping us. And she really wants us to see the event as well as present. I suggest that we divide into an early group and a late group. The early group will tend the store from noon to 2:00 and then participate. The late group will participate until 2:00 and then mind the store from 2:00 to 4:00. Thoughts?
