Helpful Tips About The Event
ADMISSION BRACELETS AND PARKING
Admission bracelets will be mailed to tent holder prior to event.
Please note for this has been a problem. Please take the time and mail your admission bracelets to your guests or have them picked up from you.
Everyone tends to leave them all at the entrance area. Last year we had over 200 envelopes to pass out. Yes, we have always said if there was a problem to leave them BUT the situation is overwhelming.
Please distribute the admission bracelets to everyone in your group prior to the event so they may enter the grounds without waiting.
If there is a reason for not mailing, as last minute, just invited etc. you may leave them but only at ONE ENTRANCE which is upper lot (NOT the entrance that leads to tents). If you have a Tent Car Pass, you must leave envelopes at upper entrance then drive down to your entrance to access your tent.
There will be a $5.00 Parking Donation to park all cars at WCCC.
Please notify your guests. Not Mandatory. No Credit cards.
All proceeds will benefit Old Joe Club Charities, Inc.
ALL ADULTS must have an admission bracelet to enter the grounds and the bracelet must be worn throughout the event. Due to the open area and the large number of people attending.
ADULT TEAMS must register prior to the event $140.00 per team. Team starting times will be emailed to tent holder the week of the event. Please notify your guests of their starting time.

RESTRICTIONS Advertising signs are not permitted to be placed in ground around your tent such as “donated by”, “catered by”, or “advertisement and campaigning” signs.
Croquet makes a sign to hang in front of your tent with your business name or family name.
These signs all look alike.
You are permitted to hang a backdrop from the back side of your tent to go along with Tent Judging and Decorating. It may pertain to your business but in good taste.
This banner must be approved by committee.
