First of all, congratulations on purchasing a ticket to the first ever Lost Sierra Hoedown. The staff here at Lost Sierra would like to express tremendous gratitude for supporting our event and the Johnsville Historic Ski Bowl. We have been working hard to make sure this Hoedown is legendary and unforgettable. Here’s a couple last minute reminders to maximize your fun and minimize impact.
The Lost Sierra Hoedown is rain or shine. We are going to be dosey doein’ through the night even if we have to do it in our ski clothes. The weather is looking a little bit chilly, but what better way to stay warm than yoga, hiking, and dancing?! Please don’t sell yourself short on warm clothing and camping gear. Go nuts, go overboard, bring extra for your friends! Consider bringing wool socks, long johns, ear muffs, beanies, down jackets, rain jackets and gloves.
On-site Campers… If you’ve been diligent in your Hoedown research, you’ll note that you need to carry your camping gear about a 1/4 mile from the parking lot to the Ski Bowl. Don’t fret, we’ll have a pick up truck doing laps to help you with gear. We will be happy to transport neat and tidy duffel bags and coolers – last minute plastic bags from the grocery store, not so much. Please take time to prepare.
Speaking of preparing, take time with our website www.lostsierrahoedown.com There’s a lot of great info on there. This is not a music festival, it’s a Hoedown, a very unique event, plan accordingly. Help us minimize impact on the Plumas-Eureka state park, a historical treasure.
Also, a note on efficiency. We are all in this together. From on-site camping to parking spots, the better we can do with carpooling and filling up tents, the more room we will have for everyone. Gates open on Friday at noon, “Stake Your Claim” camping is first come first serve. So get there when you can to mark your territory. Read the website and stay in tune with Facebook to stay updated. Can’t wait to meet ya’ll, see you Friday! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions, (after thoroughly reading the website.)
