This event will be held on
Saturday, April 7th 2012 at Sherwood Island State Park from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM
$5 per person entrance fee
Directions, courtesy of Google Maps
It is extremely easy to get to the park:
1. Get to I-95
2. Get off exit 18
3. If Northbound take a right, if Southbound take a left
4. Drive straight, but stop before you hit the ocean
This is a laid back show, but there are a few simple rules to ensure we can keep this show going:
- No alcohol is allowed at the park. Sorry!
- No hooning
- Obey posted speed limit. There's a lot of kids/dogs/geese/animals/DEP officers patrolling/etc.
We all know what not to do...
Club and Vendor setup starts at 10:00AM EST. We do not mark off reserved space, it's up to each individual's group to arrive early enough to claim an area.

*No vendor fees, just a flat $5 per person entrance fee. This is a laid back show and vendors don't need to be pressured to "make up" what it cost them to attend. Win-win!
PM your best picture that we can use as the official photo of DoD5. Whatever you have that best represents the show.
