The Arena will arrive by truck on Monday Oct 13th, orbs in tow Arena construction from Mon-Thurs Swamies must be present by Thurs but are welcome as early as Monday

All Swarmies are needed for Arena Teardown. I am told that "it sucks". Teardown is Sunday Oct 19--> Tues 21st. Long hours, physical labor, hundreds of tiny jobs helping the Arena crew.


As part of the program, Swarmies stay with the 5 Arena crew at a local B&B. Note, usage of the B&B's hot tub is encouraged.
