Minor site problem for game 6.4
on Thu Jan 16, 2020 1:54 pm
I just heard from the camp and they let me know that they are still having a significant problem with the mens shower building.
"The pool bathrooms, staff bathrooms, and woman’s shower house will be available."
Gentlemen, that means you can shower in the staff bathroom which is in the building next to Cabin 4. (aka The Other Side). If you don't know where that is, I am happy to help you find it.
ACTION REQUIRED FOR SHIFTER CHARACTERS: Renown
We are working very hard to update our renown tracking system. During this process, I would like to cross-check our records with your knowledge of your own character! If you have a shifter character (or characters), please fill out this form for each of them!
Please do this ASAP!!! I would like to get this tracker up and running before next game!

Game 6.2 Update
As you may know power has been on and off at the camp in October, currently it is on and expected to stay that way looking at weather projections stay on during our game weekend. But circumstances can change so we would like to remind everyone to be prepared for a power outage.
Some ideas on being prepared is to bring extra lighting, for navigating the site and lighting the cabins. Since the smoke hood can not be turned on we will not be able to cook in the kitchen and would want to minimize the fridge access. So pack some backup food that does not need cooking or cooling. We believe that the furnaces in the cabins do not require power so we should be good for heat at least in them but it would be good to have extra warm items like blankets and jackets.
Again we do not expect there to be a loss of power and game is still on this weekend. We look forward to seeing you all at game.

Season 6 Dates!
on Wed Jun 12, 2019 10:28 am
Today I spoke to the new Camp Director and I was able to get tentative dates for season 6.
However, that came with a big caveat that I need everyone to understand. Going forward, all Prospects Dates are to be considered tentative until at least 60 days out. The camp will not secure our dates until 60 days out in preference for larger groups.
The XOs will inform everyone when we have confirmed dates so you can make appropriate plans.
Without further ado; here are the Season 6 Dates.
Game 1 - September 13-15
Game 2 - November 1-3
Game 3 - December 13-15
Game 4 - January 24-26
Game 5 - March 6-8
Game 6 - April 17-19
Let me know if you have any questions.

I'm stickying this post here because it's recently been brought to our attention. It looks like sbcglobal.net currently has our registration emails blocked. I'm working on fixing the problem, but in the meantime, please use emails from other providers to register - we'll hopefully get this fixed soon, but *just in case*...
