The best advice that I can give is:

FORGET ABOUT IT!!!! :x

Referencing the published rental rates at the Springfield Park District web site ( www.springfieldparks.org ), renting our old site at the Washington Park Pavilion would cost us about $750 for a 12 hour event, renting the Lincoln Park Pavilion would cost us about $1200 for a 12 hour event, and renting just one section of the Main Hall of Erin's Pavilion at Southwind Park for a 12 hour event would cost us $650. [Having a skittles space would double the rental fee!]

Back in the day the club had been there and done that.

The park district thought the local non-profit chess club should have been their cash cow.

If it was me I wouldn't play at the park if it was free. But I'm pretty much inactive as far as chess goes as I roam the Astral plane hunting for Tiamat.
