RULES: 

1) First and foremost: NO violence - This is a loving event. 

2) Soft pillows only. No zippers, snaps, anything. Just regular pillows. (Tip: Pillows in pillow cases allow for better swinging arc) 

3) Swing with love 

4) Do not swing at anyone without a pillow or holding a camera 

5) Remove your glasses before you jump in 

6) NO FEATHERS. Let's not make a mess.
