Chris and Shauna Meyer are natives to the Placerville area and met in high school where Chris attended El Dorado High School and Shauna went to Ponderosa. They have been married for 22 years and are the parents of two children. After graduating high school, Chris and Shauna worked at G&O Body Shop and Towing for the better part of fourteen years. Chris ran the towing end of the operation and Shauna liked to keep herself busy in the auto body side of the business.
They both decided to go into business for themselves and Chris started High Sierra Industries which provides line lunches in support of all the fire service personnel putting their lives on the line all summer long, as well as keeping the service vehicles fueled up and ready to go. High Sierra Industries also helps up with the fire cleanup after everything is out.
Shauna left G&O and started helping a close friend book parties and events and really took to it. She liked the aspect of decorating, setting up themes and creating an environment that the people feel comfortable in and can express and enjoy themselves. Shauna really wanted to get into the equipment rental side of the business when an opportunity arose for her to take over a party rental equipment company and the rest is history. She launched High Sierra Events and is ready to take care of all your event rental needs.

Size Guide & Tips
Table Seating Guide
For standard/comfortable seating we recommend that you reserve 2’ of space per person. Please note this may be adjusted smaller if you have smaller chairs/guests, however you may need to reserve a little more room if you think your guests may need it. A typical chair width ranges from 15” - 20”.
Table Setting Guide
Linen Size Guide
All our tables are the standard height of 30”, with the exception of the cocktail tables which are 42” high. Within this size guide you will see # drop - this indicates how far the linen will hang down the sides of the table. Reference the diagram below.
Dance Floor Size Guide
Determine what size floors you will need:
Consider First: How much space you have available?
It has to be able to fit to be able to use it. Precise measurements of the area you are wanting it installed in are important to make sure we provide you with the right equipment.
Consider Your Guests: A good base point for most events, is to assume that 40% of guests will be on the dance floor at any given time. This may vary depending on the group of people, but is a good rule of thumb. We would recommend 5 square feet per dancer for casual dancing.
How to Calculate?
By Guest Count: Take your total number of guests (A) and multiply it by the decimal form of the percentage you think will be dancing at any given time (B) i.e. 40% of guests would be 0.4 (find the decimal by dividing the percent by 100) to find (C) the estimated number of guests dancing at any given time (A)x(B)=(C) fo example: 150x.4=60. Then take (C) the estimated number of guests dancing at any given time and multiply it by the recommended square footage per dancer (5). 60 guests x 5 sqft=300 square feet needed. Then find the size/style that would best suit your needs. Please note the square footage will not match exactly and that is okay.
Size and Square Footage:
The numbers on the outside, indicate how big the dance floor will be in feet, the numbers on the inside indicate the square footage provided.
Please Consider When Sizing:
Our oak dance floor comes in 4’x4’ sections so the size can only be made in 4’ increments.
Black, White, or Black & White
Our black, white, or black & white dance floor comes in 2’x4’ sections so the size must be an even number of footage.
All dance floors require edging pieces that go around the perimeter to provide a fluid transition to the floor. These are not accounted in the size or square footage as they are not used for dancing. Allow 5” for oak flooring on each side. Allow for 3” for black, white, or black & white flooring on each side.
