New Things to Note

We are trying something new to give us a better estimate of how many trucks will show up at each sale. Instead of each ticket being good for a 1/2 cord of wood, each ticket will now be good for one truckload of wood. So regardless whether your truck can carry a 1/2 cord or a whole cord, just buy one ticket for each truck you plan on bringing. You may bring up to 4 trucks, and must purchase a ticket for each truck. Trailers are not allowed.
