Sorry, Maine Dog. I don't and even Seamus is not attending this Saturday - too many people and I actually plan to have the place vacuumed.

Luigi will attend and be accompanied by the sweetest little Kung Fu Hamster. Wonder if I should drag out all of the singing dancing annoying animals I own?

There is a "Lobster Festival" happening in Rockland this weekend. For some reason, this event has attracted lots of dogs, and all the kennels around here are fullll. If anyone knows of one in S. Portland, please let me know

I may be able to bring a pie (depending on how wild things get here), if Kendall would like one. He might choose to share it, but that's his call. I'd keep in a cooler in the car unless Mary wants me to come by her place first to drop it off Saturday morning?

Jacqui and I made the rounds of all the hotels, motels, libraries, etc. with fliers. We met with the museum folks. All systems are go. Micca arrives tonight.

We expect some press coverage before, during and after the event. A reporter is scheduled to arrive at my house to do a post game wind up. I expect you all to be on your best behavior.

More tomorrow.

There are signs all along Broadway directing people to the museum...just keep an eye out for the signs as they're not huge.

There might be a little confusion when approaching Broadway (in South Portland) after crossing the Casco Bay Bridge; you're really be veering left when you turn onto Broadway and then you'll want to stay in the center lane so you don't end up somewhere else such as Cape Elizabeth (to the right) or downtown South Portland (to the left).

Another landmark at the Festival site is the Spring Point Light House, at the end of a long breakwater. The Portland Harbor Museum (a low brick building) is also adjacent to the Festival Site.

We're planning to bring our Blue Peter flag to plant at the Festival site as well.

Don't forget to bring an oar, so we can muster a marching inland troop!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Sounds like you're planning on arriving early, Tami ;o))

And this sounds like just the place to be, too. Such a pity I can't be in two places at the same time, I'll try to have a good time in Sidmouth instead :-)

Have fun, everybody!

Hi Eric
Is there a chance you'll be coming??
Here you go:

For more information, contact the museum at (207) 799-6337 or by email: info@portlandharbormuseum.org


Directions
From the Maine Turnpike (I-95)

Exit from I-95 onto I-295 (I-95 Exit 44 from the south and I-95 Exit 52 from the north). Take I-295 Exit 6A (Forest Avenue South). After exiting, follow the signs to Route 77, which becomes State Street. From this point, follow the directions from Downtown Portland (below).


From Downtown Portland

Take State Street (it's one way) and go over the Casco Bay Bridge. At the traffic signal at the end of the bridge, proceed straight onto Broadway. (Broadway also goes to the right, but straight will take you to the museum.) Continue on Broadway until it ends at Spring Point Marina (approximately 1.5 miles). Turn right at the stop sign onto Benjamin Pickett Street and turn left at the next stop sign (Fort Road). Follow Fort Road through the SMCC Campus until it ends at the water. The museum is on your right.


Eric, I'm not sure what's the best route from NYC to Porthsmouth, NH but from Portsmouth Rt 95 is your best route north to Portland.
Portsmouth os just about 15 minutes north of where 95 & 495 intersect so if there's a better route coming up from NYC & it puts you on 495 it's an easy drive from that intersection.

Now if you're coming up Friday, there's alway the Press Room session in Portsmouth which starts around 4:00 & goes till 9:00 pm.

That goes for any other folks attending the festival, the Press Room session would be an ideal take & way to warm up for the following day. Maybe some kind of arrangments for floor or bed space can be found.

Actually I'm surprised that no one has metion the Press Room session seeing that there are so many performers attending this event.

Barry

Relax. I have been in charge of the Working Waterfront at Clearwater's Revival for the past 10 years.

The best you can do is set up contingency plans, get good volunteers and relax.

This year, when the weather packed us in, my cocoordinator and I were at lunch. I got on the walkie, called my crew and told them to get the area shut down. People around us were amazed that we did not go rushing down to our area but simply finished our lunches.

The point is the competence of your people. 99% of everything is prep.
