Hello Fantasy Campers!
We are close to a month away from our hopeful opening ceremonies to Fantasy Camp 33! We have been very tentative around whether it is happening or not, but I think it’s time we move forward and officially give this a shot. If you guys will show up, we’ll make it work! Below are the details. Please take a couple minutes and read this whole email so we are all on the same page.
The 33rd Fantasy Camp
Thursday August 27 – Sunday August 31
This only works with your commitment. So if we can get at least 30-40 guys locked in by Monday August 10th
, we will be a full go. By locked-in, we mean filling out the enrollment google form
and paying (if you have yet to). This isn’t a trust thing I promise. I rarely have to chase anyone down for payment after the fact, but if we start planning and purchasing (specifically in the kitchen) it would, frankly, really screw us if we got to a week out and large groups of people who said yes started to bail.
Guys, this year has been weird, and it has been a strange summer for all of us. As such we just ask that you are flexible with a few tweaks to the normal FC routine as we look ahead to that weekend:
Schedule: The Commish put together a potential modified schedule that I’ll share with anyone who would like it. At the end of the day, we’ll do as much or as little as everyone is comfortable with. The ultimate goal is for everyone to be up here together enjoying camp for a few days as a group.
Cabins: This year we will need you all to tell us who will be in your cabin. We highly suggest no more than 4 or 5 people in each cabin. If you don’t have a group you are comfortable staying with, please reach out so we can discuss a solution. Here are the cabins that we have had open and are maintaining this summer: 4, 6, 7, 9, 12, 13, Senior Cabin, Health Center, and the 2 new staff cabins. Our staff have been living in 1 and 2. They will be out of those cabins and have them cleaned so they should be usable for FC as well.
We will assign cabins on a first come basis. When you fill out the form and your group is paid up, you get your cabin.
Linens: Ok here’s our biggest ask for the weekend. We are going to be pretty short staffed and most of our support will be departing Sunday evening after FC has ended. It would be a HUGE help for us if you could bring your own linens for the weekend. We’ll add that as a part of the form.
Testing: We are not going to require any of you to get tested before you come, but it’s not the worst idea. Might be nice to know that you and your cabin mates are COVID free so you can come up to camp and enjoy yourselves. It’s an imperfect system, but its the best we have right now. Totally up to each of you.
One last thing: the enrollment form is not a survey. So please only fill it out if you are in. This way we can track who we have signed up. Remember, the sooner you are able to commit, the easier this will be for us, but we need everyone’s commitment by Monday August 10th.
Thanks everyone and we’ll see you all for opening happy hour.
