A HUGE shoutout to our volunteers today—you guys made the event rock!
GameFace Media was on-site all morning snapping photos which will be emailed to you within five business days. 
We are very sorry for the backup with traffic this morning. The farm received a lot of rain throughout the week and it proved to be difficult parking as efficiently as we would have liked. Our parking crew’s first priority was to get everyone parked safely. With that in mind, they slowed down to allow cars to enter safely, not get stuck, and park. We understand your frustrations and will work to have a better plan in the event of muddy field conditions for next year. Thank you again!
