Planking Time is Here!

Details have been released for the 61st outing of the Shad Planking, a benefit put together by the Wakefield Ruritan Club. During the Byrd Days the gathering was an exclusively white Democratic affair that was essentially used to anoint the next Governor. However, over the years the event has evolved in to a day of binge drinking and political theater as campaigns on both sides put themselves through a rigorous organizational test, mostly in the form of epic sign wars on the road leading to the Planking grounds. This year the main event will be the speeches by McDonnell, Moran, McAullife, and Deeds, the contenders for Governor. 

I’ve never been, but this might be my year. Tickets are $20. 

When: Wednesday, April 15, 2009
  The afternoon event will begin at 2:00 pm and end at 6:30 pm, rain or shine. The formal program will begin at 4:00 pm. The meal will be served when ready.  
Where: Wakefield Sportsmen’s Club
12205 Brittles Mill Road 
Wakefield, VA 23888
