DSES Participation in the Annual Eads Bash

DSES will have two or three tables at the 10th annual Maine Street Bash on Maine Street in Eads, Colorado on Saturday, July 30, 2016. Please come join us. This will be our 7th time as a part of this fundraiser that benefits the Crow-Luther Cultural Events Center, which is this event’s organizer. The Crow-Luther Cultural Events Center is a dynamic non-profit that that has saved the historical Plains Theater in Eads. They are giving DSES the foyer of the theater for the duration of the Bash, along with use of the stage and their big screen projector for up to 1 ½ hours of presentations between 5:00 p.m. and 6:30.

Festivities run from 5:00 p.m. until midnight. The vendor fee is waived for DSES and entrance to the theater is free for DSES members. Our display area is in air conditioned space in the theater’s foyer, where we will display our photos, drone videos, and various Power Point based presentations.

Summertime in Eads means the Maine Street Bash, a street festival on Maine Street in front of the Plains Theater. This festival gets bigger every year. It includes live music, both local and professional, a beer garden, a movie festival, the Kidz Zone, a Food Court, vendors, a horseshoe tournament, and a street dance that starts when the sun goes down!

We can gain access to the Bash as early as 4 p.m. and you can stay as till late as you want. We will pay individually for our entry tickets, cost is $10 each.

PLEASE, will some members come over to Eads for the Bash? You don’t have to worry about a big clean up — maybe a dry shirt if it is typically hot. Lots of good food on sale on the street – rock and roll band on a 40″ flat bed – Good old small town, fun street fair. Some of our friends there are going to bring some County Commissioners and, hopefully, a couple of the Power COOP board members by to say hi. Now that we have made such tremendous progress out at the site, and with all the work on the science program, it could really help us to show off some of that hard work and the people behind it all, to these officials.

I will go to the dish Saturday morning for a while, and John Doran is flying Wayne Green and our presenter down from Denver to Eads around 1 pm. We will get the display set up before the event opens. They will start our presentation at 5 p.m. and will fly out around 8:30 p.m., assuming the weather fits. I am planning to stay at Dolores Eickenbergs guest house and spend at least most of Sunday at the site. If bad weather comes in, they will stay there and I will get them to the airport in Eads in the morning.

Thanks and see you Saturday, the 30th. Please call or text me if you can come for at least part of the show.
