It's January: DAMENTOFEST month!
- Hello Damentos, friends, fellow jugglers et al...
January is here! Happy New Year!
Mike Brown and I went on a little tour of the festival
site yesterday (at Cosumnes River College) and
environs and it all seems so perfect for our little
juggling festival! The gym is SO huge and beautiful!
It�s such a great place with very easy access right
off the freeway, exactly 10 minutes from downtown
Sacramento! ...Ten drinking fountains, spacious
classrooms for workshops, showers, and...we found out
that there will be a mexican flea market in the
parking lot Sat and Sun with fresh tamales, atole,
tacos, quesadillas, fresh fruit and vegetable stands
and trash and treasures for those inclined to shop for
trinkets! One mile from the college entrance there�s
a new shopping center with movie theatres, thai,
sushi, jamba juice and original pete�s pizza! Just a
little further, you find a 24-hour huge supermarket
with bakery, bulk foods, pharmacy, (you can get your
Coleman fuel here!) plus a small very cheap pizza
place that sells pizza by the slice! A Carl�s Jr. is
also there. And about a mile going in the other
direction, there�s Togo�s and Baskin Robbins and
several gas stations and mini-marts....also on campus,
within short walking distance from the gym there�s a
NO FEE ATM!
We will post all this info on the website and also
have specific directions available at the fest
registration table. Remember, entrance to the fest is
on Center Parkway, Parking lots A and B.
Our Damento Mementos arrived last week...I was so
thrilled!!! they are SO BEAUTIFUL!! (thanks to
Johanna Thaxter for the idea) And I�m working on
soliciting donations for our hospitality table (to be
set up by Friday at 5:00pm) and, hopefully, kept
stocked with drink, food and snacks throughout the
for more info, to participate and volunteer email me
