    we cant leave out the tin men....they take hours to get into the outifts..its a full on metal outfit..once they are in it..they can do very little ...i think it takes 2 hours to do the full outfit...and about 45 minutes to get them out of it

    i am always in total awe of the people that come together for one weekend a year and do this...it doesnt matter how cold..how rainy or how hot....the only objective is that the wee ones have a great time...
