strawberries and disorganization

The date of the Topsfield Strawberry Festival has finally been announced: June 14, from 10 to 3. I had thought I might be able to avoid it by moving Essex a week later than last year, but I'm once again conflicting. I found some good new roads in Topsfield which I'd planned to use towards the beginning of the rally, which runs from noon to 6. I guess I'll just have to move those roads to the late afternoon instead.

I had sort of been thinking of doing that anyway, to solve some unrelated scheduling issues with the break locations, so this isn't all bad. Just another example of it not paying to do too much work on the rally too far ahead of time.
