Grafton Apple Festival 2013
« on: July 23, 2013, 05:15 PM NHFT »

Sunday 9/29/13


We were thinking....since that Johnson guy volunteered to lead the parade...how about a movable contraptions competition?  It could be anything from kids on bikes to special contraptions that people build.  We could have prizes and stuff for different categories.  We were thinking in could go on the rail trail, or we could get permission to shut down main st. or some such thing.  What say you?  I think Johnson would have to do the baton twirling.

My vote would be for the rail trail.  Have to contact the owners, but something on a private road would be cooler than something on a State-run road.

Only if it's not a marathon.  Some of us are old and feeble.

Different categories... coolest ride, youngest/oldest participant etc.

I was thinking around the town green so everyone could watch from the church.
And/or from the rec field down the rail trail to the church.
And/or down the road away from the church and down by the river. It is nice and flat there. Or back from the beach around the back to the green. :-)

yea
I was thinking we could start the prize packages by putting in a little cash for each prize and maybe we could buy pies off Becky to add. :-)

My bike is all tuned up and ready to go.

After all the back-and-forth about which was better, we settled on - always - the last Sunday in September.
This way folks can always know, from year to year, when it will happen.

And if ever there is weather so extremely bad that we have to postpone, we'd still have the equally-as-good-Sunday left for the "rain date."  8)
