From Jan the Show Chairman.
Wed afternoon about 4:30 PM Dee, Randy Brown, Rusty and I meet at the show site at Marymoor park to stake out the locations of Rings, Canopies, etc. This takes about 2 hours.
Thursday morning about 9am we all meet at the show site along with the workers from the Lynnwood High Band and begin setup. BaRay usually shows up about then and Abbey actually comes earlier along with the golf carts.
I'm there about 7:30AM to make sure this is all under control. The Sammamish trailers with the equipment get there on Wed night so we have everything at hand. This setup will take all day and I do provide pizza for all the workers for lunch. We usually are finished about 6:30PM including all the signage & fire land marking.
Also on Thursday the parking crew mark out the parking spaces and get the incoming overnighters parked. Stan and Barbara Etienne arrive along with Brian Kingery and Marc Saunders to accomplish all this.
Friday morning Randy Brown will arrive at 7AM along with the crew from the Band to make sure all is set and clean and no problems. The specialties will usually begin about 9AM and go until 5 or so.
Saturday is also a specialty day and Saturday evening is the Sammamish kennel Club judges dinner at the host hotel, the Marriott at Redmond Town Center. This is usually over by 9PM
And of course Sunday is our big day!
