All the more reason we need to fill the place. If there are no other guests it will be much easier to pull off stuff like music by the pool or outside in the courtyard.

Sam, I reached out to Alan for Thundersnow 2014 (as he requested at the first one), but never got a response.

I know the Blind Shake have a booking agency working for them, but if they're allowed to work around them have them get in touch if they're interested.

Everybody else- submissions will be open for another week or two so keep em coming.

Jeff, how many total rooms are there, including suites? Do you know? Not capacity, just number of rooms.

I am not joking.


Revolution Gospel Choir played the first year and Alan was TOTALLY into it, but i'm sure Low has booking agents to deal with and that BS.

Now, i mentioned it to Jim from the Blind Shake last night at Cactus Club, and his curiosity was certainly piqued...


I flat out asked them last year. They were into it, but two of the dudes had other commitments that weekend.

They missed playing PRF West by a day... a DAY. bummer!
But they ended up recording a new record, which i'm sure will rule the school.

Maybe we should think about setting aside the suite wing for people who don't plan on partying really loud until 7am? then the families can all book suites without worrying about seeing some beardo's nut sack. what do you think?


We booked a suite this year and last because Peggy has a lot of crazy dietary restrictions and has to cook pretty much all her own food. Otherwise we'd just get a room in the party wing.

That said, I'm pretty sure my best friend is coming and bringing his 15 year old son. Both top dudes.

Only 1-2 do. We were in a suite last year and no Kitchen.

Ah.

How did the meals go for vegetarians/vegans, if there were any? I should start thinking about stuff I can bring in lieu of their meals, or to augment their meals.

This is basically the one aspect of the weekend that I think could be improved. There were some veggie side dishes in the buffet but nothing much in the way of something more substantial. Don't get me wrong- I love mashed potatoes but they probably aren't best suited as a main dish. Even veggie dogs/ burgers would suffice.

There were a few veggie options available to order from the bar menu in the ballroom though.

Thundersnow 2015 Herbivore Recipe Share Sub-Thread!

I would totally go in on some veg cooking, or pack some veg food that could easily be prepped/reheated. I'll be coming from Madison WI about five hours away and could easily pack a cooler with goodies that we probably couldn't find in an Escanaba grocery store.

Accepting band submissions until this Sunday night!

Don't worry if you haven't gotten a response. I've been adding names to a master list as they've come in.

Heavy Hand, for those unaware, are Tony from LLTTTD doing super slop-ass noisy pop-punk with Isa on bass and our bud Chris on drums. Super basic, super good.

We got way more submissions this year than ever before. I'm trying to figure out a way to include as many bands as possible while preserving the laid back aspect. This could include having a side 'stage' set up for smaller/quieter bands where the PRF Improv ensemble was set up.

either way, music isn't gonna go into the wee hours or start uncomfortably early, because that's when half the fun happens...
