The DIY package (Do It Yourself) is our most popular, affordable choice for parties and receptions. After reading this page and the Frequently-Asked-Questions page, use the Request a Date form to inquire about a rental.
You Do It: Provide food
& drink (by a caterer or your own refreshments, food,
containers); change the standard setup of 10 tables if needed
(see the photo at the bottom of this page); provide table
coverings, decorations, D.J. or other entertainment; then
afterward clean up (we help & provide materials) and
re-setup to standard.
(Standard setup is 10 tables with 10 chairs each, in a pattern of 5 along each side of hall - see photo below since the photo at the top is not the standard plain setup.) You are allowed to rearrange a bit, or pull out more tables and chairs if needed, and later put them back.
We provide the following: (for 100 or up to 170 people)
- 4 hour Hall rental time for guests (see price below).
Examples are 3-7, 6-10, 8-12, or 9-1 (1 is our latest).
+ You personally get up to 2 free hours sometime on day of rental (arranged beforehand) to have a cake delivered, bring drinks, non-hot food & supplies, change or add to the setup if needed, and to decorate (no small confetti of any kind, and no helium balloons unless anchored since they float up 22 feet and hang or tangle in our high-ceiling fixtures).
+ Additionally, you get ½ hour before your start time for bringing hot food and for D.J. setup (not guests).
+ And, following your rental end-time (guests are gone), you get ½ hour to finish cleanup, take out trash bags, re-setup furniture, and for you and D.J. to finish gathering & loading.
So, in effect, you get up to 7 hours for your 4-hour rental price.
- 1 Attendant at setup time and event time
- 10 tables already set up (30" x 96", or 2 1/2ft. x 8 ft.), with 10 chairs at each (you can add up to 7 more tables)
- Approx. 2300 sq. ft. floor space with mirror ball, plus large raised stage with curtain, projection screen
- Beverage area with 200 pounds of ice (you can scoop out for your coolers, glasses, buckets, tubs)
- Walk-in refrigerator/cooler (no kitchen, no freezer). Bring beverages and put in during your setup time.
- Cabinet warmer see photo, then click your browser's Back button to return here, 1 Large, 1 Small microwave oven, 2 tables in food area
- 2 LCD marquees with your event information running
