2012 Pickathon Work Party #3 this weekend (April 28) at Pendarvis Farm
Monday April 23, 2012

Please join us this Saturday, 4/28, for more trail maintenance and campsite leveling at the beautiful Pendarvis Farm! We are super impressed with the delicate touch on the land at our first two work parties and encourage more of the same! Our goal is to make camping at Pickathon comfortable and special while maintaining as little impact on the land as possible.

This will be byob potluck. . . any firewood (unpainted/treated) is appreciated for the hoedown later in the evening.

Please leave your dog(s) at home.

Carpooling is strongly encouraged as the fields are still quite soupy!

If you bring children, please be aware that the evening party becomes 21+.

Pendarvis Farm is located at 16581 SE Hagen Rd, Happy Valley Oregon. Check for directions!

Thanks a bunch, and hope to see y’all there!

Facebook? RSVP HERE!


Here’s the rundown-


-9:45am: Congregate at the Galaxy Barn (the red one)… please try to be on time, so we can all head up to the woods as a group. If you have to come a little late call Elwood at (315.796.0119) and he’ll let you know where we are.

-10am-1pm: We’ll head on up to the woods, tools in hand (and wheel barrows)

-1pm-2pm: LUNCH BREAK

-2pm-6/7ish: Back at it. We’ll continue until dusk.

-7pm-?: PARTY TIME!!! Head down to the Galaxy barn! Potluck, music, jamming, dancing and general merriment will commence during/after dinner hours…BYOB please!

Now, What to bring???

-Appropriate clothing- Boots, WORK GLOVES, rain gear, warm socks, etc.

-Tools- Bring ’em if you got ’em. Bow saws, loppers, axes, shovels, hard rakes, scythes, sickles, machetes, hoes. For liability reasons, please do not bring chainsaws. We may have a few approved folks getting some big stuff out with chainsaws, but most of the work is done by hand.

-Canteen/Water bottle

-Change of clothes- Unless you like to party in your work clothes. But hey, diff’rent strokes…

-Musical instruments- Guitars, banjos, sousaphones, musical saws, etc. We will set up an open mic/and/or/jam on the stage in the barn, and there are plenty of nooks for smaller jams.

-A designated driver- Please do not drink and drive!

-Food/Drink to share (if you wish)

-Your positive attitude, and witty charm

-A friend (or two)

*Since Pickathon volunteer slots are limited, volunteering at a work party will not earn you a free weekend pass for the festival.


Folks who volunteer at work parties WILL be given priority for a volunteer position at Pickathon, which WILL get you your free weekend pass. Volunteer positions include set-up/tear-down, brew crew, recycling, or other various positions. Pickathon work parties are a great way to make new friends, let off some steam from the work week, become part of the Pickathon/Pendarvis Farm community, help out, and get back to nature. We truly appreciate every drop of sweat that goes into making this festival happen.

Please RSVP for the work party by replying to this e-mail, or RSVP to the event on our Facebook page. If you plan on bringing some friends out, please include the number of people and their names (or have them contact me directly), so we can get a head count for party accommodations!

Thank you SO much, and look forward to seeing you!
