8:31 am - Camp 2008!

Hey campers!!

Are you ready for this year's camp?! I certainly am. ^_^ Camp starts on an early date this year-- the solstice is the last day of camp-- so be prepared! I've heard that the TA mailings are going out soonish-- does anyone have any more info on this?

Also: does anyone know what this year's theme is? If we have no theme by now, does anyone want to suggest one?

Does anyone still need a ride to Oregon? Now is the time to figure that out-- I don't think we want anyone left behind!

-S, your friendly mod.

12:40 am - This year's camp(s)!

So, as y'all know, there are in fact TWO camps this year. I know that there was already a facebook thread about this, but:

Who's coming to teen camp?

Who's going to Oregon?

I think my car's full for the Oregon trip-- as far as I know, I'm taking Rachel F., Rio, and Laurel. Is this correct? Who still needs rides/who can give them?


We are TOTALLY in pre-camp now; it's AWESOME.

Also, one of my students is coming to camp this year, at least in theory. PLS treat him kind! Kthxbye!

12:56 pm - TWO WEEKS!!!

CAAAAAAAAAMP is in less than two weeks. This is your friendly community maintainer reminding you that if you have not registered for camp by now, DO IT (because it might already be too late).

TAs, if you're worried, the mailings should have either gone out today or yesterday, from what I hear.

Also, in theory, my brother and I are running the Solstice ritual. Any requests? (Also, we may need a Holly King-- any takers?)

See you all there!

4:31 pm - Calling all TAs!!

Hallo, campers!!

This is a reminder that all TA-wannabes need to write to Shelley before the first of April to tell her how much she wants to hire them. This also applies for people doing work-study who are over 18 but don't meet the TA requirements (which are school or independent living). IM/e-mail me if you need the address.

Also, it looks like Eilis will be back this year, and David will not. *happy/sad face.* I think that's it, and I'll see all of you at camp, if not before!

Oh! And I assume that everyone actually does want a TA hunt this year-- Laurel, can you talk to your mom and make sure it gets on the schedule? We'll need an hour or two, probably after ensemble, to do it properly. Thanks!


(p.s.: who wants to come busking with me on Saturday? I kind desperately need money.)

Shelley and Barry Phillips have a photo blog up of their current trip to the UK, and it's just fantastic -- I'm sitting here looking at it with my jaw dropped and wanting to tell more people about it. So enjoy!

So, here it is:

At camp, we have no shameCollapse )
This is from the original text that I wrote down at Hillary's party, so there may have been some changes made.

Feel free to link this to other camp-ites.

....and on a related note, who would *you* slash at camp? No one who's actually gone out/is going out, please.

Hi Everyone!

As most of you know, camp starts TOMORROW. *pause for squee*

T.A.'s should show up around five, campers after six, or around nine on Monday morning. Don't forget your permission slips or contracts!

The dinner theme this year is pirates! YARRR!1!!1!!11eleventyone. This means COSTUMES!!

Right, well, I am off to buy said pirate costume. See you all at camp!

As most of you probably know, neither Éilís nor David will be at camp this year, as far as I know.

I will be heading over to Dingle one more time before I leave Ireland, so if anyone wants me to say hi/other things to Éilís, this is most likely your last chance before next year. ^_^


p.s. If anyone wants Irish/British food or other items, let me know! I'm bringing back as much Barry's tea as will fit in my suitcase, along with Toffee Crisps, Jaffa Cakes, and Curly-Wurlys, but if there's something specific you want...

current mood: nostalgic

Hallo, campers!

As most of you probably know, the camp mailings go out next weekend! Aah!

Just in case you haven't heard it yet, the info for the Winter reunion is behind this handy cutCollapse )

I'm probably going to go to Kerry this weekend and see Eilis. If anyone wants me to say hi for them or tell her anything, let me know!

Also, the requirements for TAs have changed-- e-mail Shelley if you want to know what they are or want to be a TA.

See you all in June!


current mood: eeecamp!

Doesn't look like this community gets much action. I'm in Columbia, SC and one of my hobbies is playing the tin whistle. One of my friends plays the hammered dulcimer and I am very taken by that insturment. You can listen to some of his original dulcimer tunes on his Pure Volume site.
