JMC Jamboree, Johnson Memorial Hospital, CT
We decided to try another spot and see what happens. This gig came about from our Springfield farmers market location. A person who had bought our kettle corn wanted us to pop at their hospital employee event. We were kind of skeptical because we’ve done events like this and you don’t get the kind of traffic you need to make it a worthwhile day. I guess we weren’t skeptical enough.
The people running it were certainly nice, but this was their first time doing it. When I first arrived, the woman in the video just pointed me to the far end of the parking lot. I’m standing there in the middle of all this asphalt, wondering exactly where I’m supposed to pitch my tent. I’m looking at this large group of tents all bunched together, figuring I’ll be on the end of them, but she then PLACES me on the outer edge of everything. I’m thinking, “wow, this event must be huge, since I need to leave all this room in front of me.” I then get crap from a bikey guy who thought I was cutting into the motorcycle parking. He was trying to get me to move into the dirt. Cripes.
