TACKLE THE TAR
5K Obstacle Course Race & Family Fun Day
May 13-14, 2022

Thanks for interest in Tackle the Tar and for your willingness to help Send a Kid to College!  Below are our most frequently asked questions and answers to better assist you as you prepare to participate in this year's race.  Should you have further questions, please feel free to contact us.  

What does "all-inclusive" mean?


With wedding venues, most places use the term "all-inclusive" for only items that are associated with the venue itself. We're taking a different approach and offer a true "one stop shop", to make things ultra-easy for your special day. Our packages do include venue, ceremony site, tables, chairs and linens, but we also include string lighting, uplighting, dancefloor lighting, cake spot, photography, DJ/MC, sound equipment, catering (food) and photo booth. The only items that we do not offer are floral, decor and cake.




What is your alcohol policy?


We do allow alcohol service with any licensed and insured bar-tending service of your choice. Outside alcohol, brought in by guests are never allowed.




How many people can your event building hold?


Our event building will easily accomodate 200 guests. If you require more, we can add outdoor or tented seating as needed. Our standard packages come with seating for 200 (tables & chairs included).




When can I get in the building for setup and decorations?


Our standard packages begin at 9am, the morning of your event and run through 11p, when guests (and vendors) must be gone from the premises. You may purchase the day before (if it's available) for setup/decor/rehearsal. You are welcome to decorate as you wish but we do not allow nails, screws or duct tape to be put into the building structure. We recommend the use of zip ties.




How much does it cost to get married here?


We have three packages available, ranging from $3500 to $8500, all of which can be customized as needed; Silver-Bundle - Venue, tables, chairs, ceremony site, sound system(s), DJ/MC, uplighting and string lighting. Gold-Bundle - Venue, tables, chairs, ceremony site, sound system(s), DJ/MC, uplighting, string lighting and adds photography and photobooth. Diamond-Bundle - Venue, tables, chairs, ceremony site, sound system(s), DJ/MC, uplighting, string lighting, photography, photobooth and adds catering (food).




Do you take care of cleanup or do we?


We take care of all cleanup on the Diamond-Bundle package only (where we provide the catering). If you're providing your own food then you are responsible to take care of cleanup. Cleanup must be completed by 11p. There is a $500 security deposit required, which is returned to you once the property is left in clean condition.




I'm worried about having to cancel because of Covid-19. How do you handle those situations?


I know this is a hot topic right now. Virtually everyone is asking that same question. The answer is simple; you will never lose your deposit with us. If your date has to be moved because of another shutdown (God forbid) then you simply pick a new date and we'll apply your deposit to that date (up to 2 years out). The package deal you get will be the same for the new date, no increases at all. The same rule applies in the case of military deployments. Just pick a new date, and we'll do it then. You also have the option of going ahead with a private ceremony, with another staged ceremony and your reception at a later date. We care about you and your special day and we'll do everything possible to make sure it happens, just as you dreamed.
