Are these yours?

A couple of guitar stands were left behind, back stage on River Stage, after the Kispiox Valley Music Festival.  We’d like to reunited them with their people.

Another Festival Successfuly Concluded

Our 20th annual festival is done and, by all accounts, it was a success.  We’re not quite done yet: Monday is the big clean-up day.  We’d really appreciate anyone who can come out to help put things away and make sure the grounds look great.

(I’ll try to persuade the President, Vice President, or Conductor or someone to write a better concluding blurb for the web site.)

Maximum number of large RVs has been reached

This information was provided this morning by the relevant coordinator, Kathy Clay:

Billets Needed

The Performers Committee is looking for billeters for festival :) Let us know if you have space for performers to lay their heads. Preference given to those living in the valley. Length of stay could be from Thursday evening to Monday morning, and we ask that folks give the performers a lift to and from festival during the weekend. You will be fairly compensated with a weekend pass and/or family pass.
Please email or call Ryan at 250-842-6913. Thanks!

Urgent General Meeting: Wednesday, July 9

The Kispiox Valley Music Festival board of directors requests that all members of the Kispiox Valley Music Festival attend an urgent general meeting dated Wednesday July 9th 2014 at 7pm.  The meeting will be at Hazelton Mental Health and Addictions (portable behind the hospital).

We ask for your attendance in order to make an important vote.

Open and Excessive Alcohol Consumption

We’ve added a note about open and excessive alcohol consumption to the Admission Page.  Formally, it is as follows:

The Kispiox Valley Music Festival is a family friendly event.  We have zero tolerance for open consumption of alcohol.  Anyone openly consuming alcohol and being disruptive will be escorted from the grounds.

Less formally, one could put it this way:

Our festival is meant to be a family event.  If your main motivation for coming is to be drunk and stupid all weekend, we’d prefer that you did not come at all.  It’s a music festival, not a pit party.

P.S.  In an email, our Security Coordinator added that, if people are seen openly drinking alcohol outside of their camp sites, it won’t be “drink or dump”. It will just be “dump”. The “no glass” rule will also be strongly enforced.
