Thank you for signing up for the Silicon Valley Tour De Coop 2016.
Please carefully read the event information below. To get the coop tour maps, please read the liability release and click the link at the very bottom of the page.
We hope it is a fun and inspirational event for you, and your friends and family.
Before we take you to the final coop tour maps, events and on-line coop guide, we are asking for a few simple items from each tour participant:
(1) Coop owners have graciously opened up their gardens and coops for this event. Be sure to personally thank the coop owners for their sharing and generosity. Please treat their yard and property with the same level of care and respect you would for your own garden and property.
(2) For the health of our feathered friends at the coops, the tour will be practicing some simple steps to prevent cross coop contamination by spraying the bottom of shoes with a diluted Lysol solution or another method selected by the coop owner. This is to prevent spreading of diseases from chickens to chickens and not for your (human) safety. For more information on why and how, please visit the Chicken and coop safety document.
(3) Restrooms will not be available at coop stops unless it is a public facility. Coop owners have been asked not to provide their bathrooms for tour participants for several reasons, but the route includes some public restroom stops at parks, or business, schools that can offer restroom services. You must provide your own food and water for this event but the tours go by business districts. Many coops will also be offering or selling snacks and providing water.
(4) Please do not share this link with other persons who have NOT registered for the event. The event is limited to the persons who have registered for the event through Eventbrite. If others wish to join you, please have them register for the event so we can get a good count on the number of participants. It is FREE!
(5) Get into the spirit of the coop day and identify yourself with a Tour De Coop Chicken accessory to your Helmet.
(6) All participants in the Tour De Coop Event must read and agree to the Release and assumption of risk form agreement below.
