That’s easy, hang out on the awesome Mad Gravel patio, watch your friends come in, drink a beer, listen to music, enjoy food and relax!
What if a bad storm or foul weather moves in?
We will make immediate decisions to postpone the start, shorten the course or make a last minute cancellation if it gets really bad. We hope you can understand we won’t be able to offer refund. Party still happens though!
