8 weeks

Wings & Wheels

Eight weeks from today I’ll be counting down to the end of the 2009 Wings & Wheels Heritage Festival.  If everything goes to plan, over 9000 visitors will have already come and gone and the place will be packed.

The planning is in full force with budgets being tweaked, vendors being contacted and the call is out for volunteers.  It’s been a struggle with lots of roadblocks and I’ve come really close to quitting more than once.  Managing a volunteer-run event is very much like herding cats.

For the next 2 months, most of the postings here will revolve around Wings &  Wheels.  Hopefully you’ll get a good idea of how something like this gets pulled off successfully. 

Or perhaps not.
