This is a Private residence and small farm in a shady rural part of Mason County. City dwellers should be ready for fresh air, rural smells, and lots of trees and small wildlife (and maybe a deer if we are lucky!). The main animals on the farm are the Icelandic Horses, some of whom you can say hello to from the other side of their enclosures. You will be taking either the North or South turnings off Highway 3 between Shelton and Allyn on to E Grapeview Loop Rd. The turning to E Murray Rd North is about half way around the loop. Follow the Road until it turns in to an unpaved compressed dirt/stone track. You will be guided into the main parking area from there. There is a separate turn in 50 yards further on (after the "End of County Road" sign for disabled parking. Please indicate if you require this area on the Sign Up form as spaces are limited.

The Pot Luck element of the event always starts tongues salivating, especially if it is British style which you don't have the chance to sample that often. We love for you to bring homemade food, but this brings with it responsibilities to others when sharing. Make sure all food is prepared with hygiene in mind. Any hot food should be cooked according to recommended times and temperatures. Make sure you have the ingredients in your head, on paper or on your phone in case you are asked by attendees with food allergies.
There will be a propane grill if you want to bring something to grill yourself (as per safety advice above).
Alcohol is allowed and you should BYOB (Bring Your Own Bottle),but please drink responsibly and anyone aged 13-20 attending should stick to non-alcoholic drinks. Bring your own soft drinks and water too.
