:: Do I have to drum for the entire event? ::

No, you don’t have to drum for hours continuously – there WILL be continuous rhythm happening, but not necessarily from any one source. You have the whole Drum Circle timeframe to play within to satisfy your personal pledge goals. We would love for any Teams to coordinate 'round the clock drummin' so there is always Team  representation through members playing.

There are drums and percussion (and fun stuff to bang) everywhere and available to borrow. We have some pretty cool drums available for purchase. Small, fun percussion instruments and hand drums. Some of our quality artisans will have a variety of drums for $5. to $375. for sale. Or bring yours. If you bring your own, we recommend hand percussion (consider the weather for wood & skins) – we drum rain or SHINE!
