A planning committee of local officials, citizens and University personnel has been formed to organize the drawing.

Preference will be given to outdoor-related businesses and organizations.
All space display areas are: 9’3” x 6’3.” Rental fees are $25 per space, and include one 8-foot table. Electrical access is limited to the outer perimeter of the Sports Center.
Doors to the UMFK Sports Center will open at 10 a.m. on the day of the drawing for vendor set-up.
