Wow, it is the middle of the week already! A lot has been accomplished, but there are still things to do! After last night's 5 hour work session, I'm feeling more confident about my part of the weekend running smoothly. I know there will be bumps in the road, but at least at this time, I'm pretty calm.
My daughter (PhinsandGills) has been so much help! I just give her a job, and it gets done! She is busy making signs for queens' cars. Everyone is asking for signs, and she is working hard getting them all done. This afternoon the 2 of us will be finishing signs and loading my car with supplies. Our center of operation moves to the queens headquarters tomorrow.
The guys at the firehouse are anticipating people beginning to arrive tomorrow.
Some may ask "What happens if there is a real fire emergency?" The local department's trucks and rescue squads have been outfitted with different lights.
Staff will be wearing bright green t-shirts and cruising around in golf carts or ATV vehicles. Tight control will be maintained during the weekend. Each department registered will receive the rules and regulations regarding the activities of the weekend. Anyone violating these rules will be asked to return to the campground. It may sound strict, but over the years the NOVFA and sponsoring towns haven't had any major problems. Everyone abides by the rules for a great time. It is generally understood by members of the organization that they are responsible for the behavior of their firefighters. Let's call it "controlled chaos!"
Well, back to work for me! More signs to do, and last minute details to work out! Pictures will follow as soon as I find time!
