OK folks, we've been chattin' this up in the Donkey thread for a while and, by popular opinion, it looks as though DOD II is all but set... here are the details:
Date: June 10, 11 2011
Location: DuBois, Nebraska
Event: ABATE of Nebraska, District 11's Annual Spring Bash
Details: This is an annual event held by ABATE of Nebraska's District 11. It is just a couple miles out of the small town of DuBois, Nebraska, just a few miles north of the Kansas/Nebraska border. It is a 2-3 day event that starts on Friday and ends when ya get up and make it outta there Sunday. It costs $20 to get in for the entire weekend. And, for that $20, you get free camping all weekend, free all-you-can-drink ice-cold-out-of-the-tap beer all weekend and live entertainment both Friday and Saturday nights. The live entertainment? Who else for DOD but Southern Reign! There is at least one food vendor and a few other vendors there.
Folks, we played this event earlier this year and it flat rocks! It is the most fun I've had playin' at an event since DOD I. Here are a couple pics of the stage:
There are a few motorcycle events during the later part of the day Saturday (slow race, wienie race, ring toss and keg push) and it's just a real laid back, fun time. The folks that show up are awesome and love to party. I guarantee ya, this is a major party just waitin' for the Donkeys (and anyone else interested!) to arrive!
We (the band) plan on camping there, just like last time. It's a great place to camp, lots of shade, and fairly flat. Here are a few pics of the campgrounds:
There just a bit of gravel road to get to the site but not much and it's not bad (they've been holding this event at this site for years). I've heard tell of motels in a nearby town but have no info on that at the moment. If anyone needs that info, let me know.
Deb is already playin' around with some t-shirt designs and Suzie had the great idea of havin' Donkey lookin' out of a tent on the shirt. I'm pretty confident we'll be incorporating that and many other ideas.
Quite a few of you have said you plan on goin'... if so, please post it here so we can get some ideas on how many are gonna make it. The more the merrier!
I realize this is pretty far in advance but I figured I'd let everyone know now... I'm am soooooooooooooooooooooo ready to do this!
