Dustin Kelm will be performing in New Jersey on Saturday, April 8, 2006. This is a rare opportunity for riders in the New York City metro area (and eastern PA) to see Dustin perform.
The event takes place at the Green Pond Bible Chapel in Rockaway, New Jersey, which is about an hour west of Manhattan. “Spring Day Celebration” is an annual church event geared for children 5th grade and under. It takes place from 9:00 AM until 1:00 PM on Saturday, April 8th. I am waiting for the church to call me back regarding when Dustin will be performing (because if you are not bringing kids, there won’t be much else to do for four hours). I will post that information when I have it.
The event is free but donations are encouraged. They also request that you register, but it’s not required and I think it’s mainly to get a “kid count”. If you plan to attend, please let me know in this thread. I will call the church with a headcount on Friday as a courtesy to them.
Here is a MapQuest link to their address. Click “Directions To” on that page to get driving directions. Keep in mind that there is some seriously confusing and congesting construction work at the Rt. 46 / Rt. 23 / Rt. 80 interchange. If coming from the city, avoid directions that take you to Rt. 23 unless you are familiar with the route.
From the GWB - follow signs for Route 80 West. From Lincoln Tunnel - 495 to 95 South to 280 West, which merges into 80 West – or 495 to 95 North to 80 West
From Route 80, take Exit 37 - Hibernia/Rockaway. At end of exit ramp, turn left (towards Hibernia) onto Green Pond Road. Go 9 miles – church is on the left.

This event is in a few days. Sorry about the short notice. Again, please post here if you plan to attend. Maybe I’ll see some of you there!
P.S. - I just noticed that Dustin is also performing in New Providence, NJ on April 7th and April 8th (according to his site). I don’t have any further info about those events, but I just wanted to note that he has a dual appearance on the 8th. You can probably meet Dustin at the Spring Day event, but don’t expect to go for a ride with him later – he looks pretty busy that day.
