Sugar and I are already working on this, so stay tuned for official Run-A-Muck wake info for Hippie. However, we encourage every camp to host their own wake/memorial as they see fit for Hippie Jerry. Some people will want more of a somber experience than the send-off we are planning. Also, Hippie was well-loved by all so getting everyone to say a word or two about him at our memorial would take all week.
The finer details are still being worked out, but the Hippie Jerry Memorial Picking Party at Run a Muck (not an official title yet) will be on Tuesday. That much is known. Probably around 2:00 PM or so, but that isn’t set in stone yet.
The key word is definitely Party. As Hooch said, ours is not going to be a somber event. We’re going to throw down in Jerry’s honor. More details will follow.
Posted elsewhere, too. But wanted to throw this here.
A further note on the Hippie Jerry Memorial Picking Party and general celebrations of Hippie.
Hippie touched a lot of lives and left a giant legacy. We know that he is loved and missed by many. Hooch and I appreciated all of the mementos and photos and everything else people brought to us in Run a Muck in 2019. We understand they all came from a place of love. But we’re going to ask that you check with us before bringing us anything this year. It simply got to be a lot of items that we had to keep track of and find places for and became a bit overwhelming.
