    Could we possibly see how much it is to reserve. And if it’s not to expensive to do so?

    Unless we can bring some kind of canopy thing.If we are allowed.

    Update. Beach house is a flat rate I safety of $1,000. We get it from 4pm to midnight tho.

    Do i think that is out of the question…

    lol, yeah. I looked it up on the earlier post, but it’s way too expensive. Might be worth it if we were going to have like 80+ people, and everyone chipped in for it.

    Well if park point is full we can always roam around canal area also.

    In trying to remember prior posts here and in the old thread, Park Point did not require any type of reservation prior to 4:00, is this correct?  If so, I am going to suggest that the person in charge of this (and your co-head if you have one) show up 20-30 minutes early and setup what you can.  Once the rest of your attendees show up then everything else can be setup and you can do your 12:00-4:00 event.

    Also, do you have a backup plan for another park if the current one is full or does not work out for other reasons?  Mainly inquiring because of attendees bringing food/beverage items.  This is also something that needs to be planned out.

    Beach houses and any other park pavilion can have high costs attached to them…It’s the same way here in the cities and sometimes more expensive.

    Going back to Spidy’s comment above, if Park Point is busier as it could be a possibility if it’s a nice day and people want to hang out there, then Canal Park is a nice idea for roaming, stopping in shops, restaurants, etc.

    This is all very good practice for everyone assisting with this now and for future event setups!  😀

    I was the one who said Park Point didn’t have reservations prior to 4 PM, which is what it said on their website. When Toru and I went to check it out in person to figure out all the rest of the details, we found out that they have a separate system of reserving pavilions prior to 4 PM that they don’t talk about online.

    From what we saw when we were there last Saturday, it should still work out on Saturday, but it’s a sure thing for Sunday. However, I’ve only gotten responses from three people so far as to whether or not Sunday works, so it’s looking like we’ll still aim for Saturday, and, as of today at least, the Weather Channel says it should be nice out on both days. I’ll give it until Saturday (the 22nd) to confirm, though. And Toru and I are planning on being there by 11 to stake out the unreserved pavilion and to start setting up.

    Agreed on Canal Park being an easy option if Park Point doesn’t work out, though it seems unlikely that it wouldn’t. There’s so much space there, even with one of the pavilions reserved we should have no problems.

    From experience, you will get different attendees on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday with the many different work and life schedules.

    Yeah, it’s an easy fall back plan if something does happen.  As an event planner you have to examine every aspect and the ‘what if’ scenarios.

    Everything else aside, it sounds like you and whoever else is assisting you have this under control.  I am glad to see a big event in the Duluth area as there have been requests in the past for events there.  I look forward to hearing how everything went afterwards as I am not going to be able to make it.

    That’s too bad, but I’ll be sure to let you know how everything goes, and hopefully you’ll be able to make it next year if all goes well!

    Me and kotten can be there at 11 to help set up and stuff. As of right now this is more of a meet up. So I don’t think to many peeps will show up for this one. Maybe next year when it’s more planned it will grow.
