  • Dress warm! This is an outdoor event. Food will be served in and around the NYSEF Nordic Trailer inside a small sided tent. The emphasis is to be outdoors – something we can all do together safely. There will be fire pits for s’mores.

  • Once you arrive, a Dare To Dream parking attendant in a neon vest will greet you. You are welcome to drive around the John Brown oval to drop off your family and then park.

  • Please remember to stop by the NYSEF registration tent which will be located at the back of the oval and entrance to John Brown Farm – we would like to provide a warm welcome, check you in and give you a commemorative gift.

  • Beverages will be served under one of the NYSEF tents. Although we will have a Dare To Dream bartender managing the tent, please try and serve yourself. There will be beer, wine, water and soft drinks available.

  • We have a variety of lights highlighting the sky and the property but please feel free to bring your own headlamp for more coverage.

  • The John Brown site manager welcomes sleds – if young athletes want to sled around the property, bring a sled!

  • Bathrooms – there will be a port – a – let near the registration area.

  • There will be garbage cans around the food and bar area for trash. This is a historic site and everything we bring in, we must bring out.

  • The event permit goes until 6:30 PM and we will tear down shortly after. You are WELCOME to stay and socialize on the property at your leisure.

We are aiming to put on a safe event outdoors and we will be cleaning frequently touched items.
