    Volunteers are needed for both days, so please register if you are interested in representing NELG at this event.  We will need to notify the organizers by early October so that a complementary entrance ticket can be sent to you in the mail.

    Entrance is through Gate 9 and parking is $5.  Bring your lace table.  The organizers will provide chairs and a large table for our display.  There are limited food vendors, so you may want to pack a lunch.
