    Smile Billville Hiker Feed

    Hi All,
    The list above is from an email I sent. It shows the plan for the food. I have got a lot of food donations from businesses in town and a few cash donations from locals. However, more funds are needed or the menu will have to be adjusted. You can contact me if you are willing.
    Bag of Tricks is working on the Obstacle Course contest which will be The At in 10 minutes or less. I just read his email which describes it. It is going to be great.
    I am not sure where I am getting a dvd projector yet. Please let me know if anyone can bring one.

    If any outfitters out there would like to donate a prize for the hiker obstacle course that would be greatly appreciated.
    A lot of food preparation will be done from July 2 to the 6 as I would like to have all the food prepared ahead of time and then just reheated to serve. That preparation will be made at my home and/or in one of the kitchens where I work. I live above the Pub (2 Ann St.) Come on up.
    I am excited but getting a little nervous because time is ticking away!

    Love to all,
    P.S. Takoma Ted, if you read this, can you come to perfor
    m
    ?

    Billville is a group not a place. It started with a group of hikers of the class of 2000. It has grown to include a large group that loves the hiking community. Jester is the "Mayor" of Billville. If you have the right state of mind you can be a member, too!! Ha! Ha!

    I'm writing from Waynesboro.....lots of folks zeroing today as it's supposed to get up to around 95 by noon.

    The buzz on the Duncannon weekend is very strong on the Trail and I think the turnout is going to be tremendous; in fact we may get more folks than we originally planned.

    I hope lots of Whiteblaze folks drop by for any or all of the weekend, but if you do, I hope some of you might consider helping out. If you know fer sure that you're coming, you might want to write trailangelmary a note to see if there's anything she might need. Or you may just want to bring something small with you.....good ideas are drinks, snacks, chips, ice, fruit, etc. Or check in with Mary, Jester, Trix, or me when you arrive in town to see if there's anything we may need or anticipate running out of.

    We're hoping for a tremendous weekend, but it may turn out to be a bigger event than we first anticipated. Hope to see lots of you there, and thanx in advance to anyone who wants to give us a hand.

    Billville and associates DID NOT serve alcohol at last years feed in Duncannon. It won't be served this year either. The young man that was killed made adult choices and decisions. It had nothing to do with Billville.

    THIS IS BAG O TRICKS PLAN FOR THE OBSTACLE COURSE

    Here is my take on, "SPRINGER to KATAHDIN in 10 minutes or less, MAYBE"

    The "HIKE" (OBSTACLE COURSE) will have monitors or Trail Angels (really Billville volunteers) to mantain stations and assist with stunts.

    The Hikers/Contestants must do the entire course with their backpacks on, containing, so far, only their sleeping bag, a miniture snickers bar, 16oz bottle of water and a 10 pound bag of sand.
    I'll supply the miniture snickers bars, bottled water, and 10lb. bags of sand. Do they have a sand box at the park?

    NOTE: At various points along the course water guns and baloons will be trained on participants by spectators representing
    unexpected storms.

    The "START"
    1 - SPRINGER & HIKER CHECK/SIGN- IN - Contestants must sign register, take off pack, eat dinner (snickers bar) and hydrate (drink water), and
    sleep (get into your sleeping bag zip up count to ten outloud, unzip bag, squeel like a pig, put pack on and continue your journey through GA.
    2 - "Ah"! , NEEL GAP - Contestants take the 10 lb bag of sand out of their pack, but pick-up new piece of gear (yet to be determined) then yell,
    "I hear Banjo Music" and continue their hike into NC/TN and the Smokies.
    NOTE: The ten pound bag of sand will be used later in to represent 10lbs of food for the "100 mile wilderness"
    3 - "TREAT THAT BLISTER - Contestants STOP apply a bandaid to any part of their body or take off a shoe / boot and apply to foot, it must stay on
    the entire course, they can use duct use duct tape if necessary to secure it.
    4 - SMOKEY'S IN THE SPRING - Contestants run across a bed of ice and dry ice (for fog).
    Mary do you know of anyone who may be willing to donate ice or that has an Ice business or machine maybe the fire house?
    5 - "PUDS" - Contestants run up and down the park steps, hill, or bank, representing the Pointless Ups & DownS or "PUDS" for the entire trip.
    (This can be done any number of times throuhout the course)
    5.5 KINCORA - we need something with trail building here
    6 - "WELCOME to DAMASCUS" - Contestants get sprayed with water guns. We need water guns
    7 - FEED THE WILD PONY - Contestants STOP, pickup a carrot, pet and offer carrot to a wild pony in the Grayson Highlands.
    I have a fake horse head I''ll bring, all we need is a bag of carrots.
    8 - "VIRGINIA BLUES" -contestants will run across the entire length of the Park simulating the never ending hike through VA,
    9 - ATC Headquaters in Harpers Ferry WVA, Contestants STOP, print their Trail Name and # and have their picture taken, by ATC volunteer.
    10- The "HALF GALLON CHALLENGE"- Hikers take off pack sit at table and eat a spoonful of ice cream out of container. We'll need a table and
    chairs and a to buy a couple tubs of ice cream and plastic spoons.
    Are you laughing yet?
    11. - ROCK & ROLL your ankles that is. Contestants walk over a dozen or so rocks - representing PA/NJ/NY Maybe stop and drink a small cup full
    of beer -representing all the bars on the way.
    12 - "BEWARE OF BEAR" - Contestants STOP, must throw rope & carabiner over designated pole / branch hook up and raise pack to top,
    then lower, unhook pack and continue journey. (I'll supply carabiners and rope for this).
    13 - WEB BREAKING - Contestants must duck under or avoid spyder web(s) we'll use the lowered volleyball net or get silly string for this.
    14 - STYLE CLIMBING - Contestants must climb over a style - (ladder over a fence) - We need about six "two by fours" to make the style.
    15 - PUNCHEONS, ROOTS & BIG ROCKS - Contestants walk over a slippery bog bridge (we make), avoid roots - sections of rope anchored in
    ground, climb over big boulders, any large obstacle(s) in park. We need around about (6 )"two by fours" and a long piece 10 or 12'ft length of
    2'' by 12'' to make the style and bog bridges see if anyone can donate , Jimmy at The Doyle
    16 - "THE 100 MILE WILDERNESS" - Contestants STOP, put 10 pound sand bag back into thier pack, representing food suppy for wilderness.
    17 - STREAM CROSSING - Contestants take off shoes / boots (maybe) or just run through a small water filled infaltable swimming pool.
    18 - SUMMIT KATAHDIN - Contestants climb rock wall or run up park hill /steps and back down for finish.
    Wildware Outfiitters may donate climbing wall.

    HITCHING A RIDE - I don't have an idea for that yet.

    NOTE Contestants must finish with snickers bar wrapper, empty bottle of water, sleeping bag, and the 10 pound bag of sand in their
    baclkpack and the bandaid on their body. There will be time deducted (TBD) for any missing items.
