That would be great to have that stuff set up early. I am not sure what gott
cans are but in storage are the large jugs for waterbearing. I got the small
one for behind the thrones. HE Brian and HE DSD will be setting up
pavillions so get with them for placement.There is no map but there will
only be two areas for smoking. One by the showers which will be easily
visible from the ropes etc. we put around it and in Swein camp , around the
campfire ring. We need to stress 'THERE WILL ABSOLUTELY BE NO SMOKING AT THE
STONES'! Even on a midnight walk, no smoking at all. Smokers will just have
to deal with it.
  The list for waterbearing is-
lots of ice,
gatoraide, not red
pickles (if you buy them cut up , it is easier)
water bottles with water already in them for the start
  we would like to have cool wash clothes as well

In the water bearing bucket are the trays, bottle and jug covers,
tablecloths, knives etc. I bought new water bottles every time because of
the cleanliness factor  etc. Buy the ones with pop tops. Usually our
Baronial children help with waterbearing but we will be 3 short because of
Irial's dealing with her health issues right now. We sure hope she feels
better soon.
 We need to get with DSD on a schedule, and comp list, he mentioned it at
Populace. Everyone who works gate should stress the fire rules to everyone
who checks in!
  I will have a hug for who brings us coffee first thing in the morning Sat.
and Sunday!!! Maybe someone will be up early to do a kitchen coffee shift. I
will bring my camp stove and large coffee pot with supplies for the kitchen.
Any takers on this job? Hint, we get up early!!  ")
