GET READY kids, parents and performance leaders to showcase your talent to DFWMM community

Annual Camping 2015

Bonham State Park, 1363 State Park 24 Bonham, TX 75418

Dear Members, we are cancelling this camping event due to rains. Safety of our members is of utmost importance to us. We apologize for any incovenience this causes you. 

Committee will start processing ticket refunds in next few days. Since the state park cancellation policy doesn't allow refunds on short notice, Mandal is bearing the penalties on behalf of all the members. However, we understand that most of you anxiously wait for this event all year long! So we are exploring alternate options for camping/GBM and will announce rescheduled plans soon. Please watch this space for more information. Thanks.

 

Please read below instructions before purchasing your tickets.

NOTE: Please do not purchase tickets for/on behalf of non DFWMM members! This is a member only event. Annual membership is pro-rated for remainder of the year (and very reasonable price).  Please encourage others to become DFWMM members and help us build a stronger local marathi community for you!

BYOW -Water:

We are going green this year! We are requesting all attendees to get their own water bottles/cups AND bulk drinking water. Our logistics team is preparing delicious lunch, breakfast, dinner and snacks. But we will NOT BE ARRANGING for WATER for anyone. Please plan appropriate amount of water for you and your family for your entire stay. You can buy bulk water cans from grocery store or get it from home in containers. In the past years, we had to make arrangements for massive amount of water for 250+ attendees but there was lot of wastage and huge pile of disposable water cups littered everywhere! Certainly there is a better way....lets try to be good citizens and stewards of our environment. Help us be more conscious and do the right thing :) Thank You.
