Stump, BYOLC & Explorers Club Meeting

Marci Penner and WenDee Rowe of the Kansas Sampler Foundation will continue The Stump tradition at the Big Kansas Road Trip. For 28 years, Marci Penner would bring a tree stump to each festival location to stand on and then ask the audience questions about things to see and do in Kansas. The same rules apply this year. Those with the first correct answer will get a ticket, and at the end of the 15-minute game, someone will win a prize from a Stump Sponsor. It’s a fast and fun fifteen minutes!

 
For the BKRT, the stump will make appearances in different areas of the three counties all four days of the event. A Bring Your Own Lawn Chair (BYOLC) event and the annual Kansas Explorers Club meeting will also be held during the four days.
