Grey Gargoyles Pennsic Camp
- Greetings!The Grey Gargoyles have a camp at Pennsic (of course), expected to be at our usual spot at the corners of Hedda's Road and Runestone Path in the W07 land block.This year, the themes for the camp will be participation and organization.Pennsic is a vacation time for everyone. We all have responsibilities and obligations to meet at Pennsic outside of the camp. But, nobody's time is worth either more or less than someone else's. Respecting your campmates by meeting your camp obligations in a timely and courteous manner is a must to make everyone's vacation that: a vacation.Last year, a core group of three campers set up the camp common-areas (with assistance from good friends who were camped elsewhere). These same campers found themselves performing the bulk of the tear-down of the camp, including the cleaning up of personal trash left by other campers and filling-in of fire pits, bridge tear-down and transportation of items to storage. During War, these same campers often found themselves performing camp maintenance items neglected by other campers. This needs to stop. Understandably, not everyone can attend setup week to perform the duties of setting up the basic camp items such as the bridge, general shade pavilion, camp tables (and fetching these items from the storage area), perimeter markers, and digging the fire pit. Most campers, however, are able to be present to perform duties such as emptying of the recycling bin during War, trash removal, kindling preparation, and tear-down of shared camp items (such as the bridge, general shade pavilion, camp tables) AND ASSIST WITH TRANSPORT OF THESE ITEMS TO THE STORAGE AREA.So, please, before pre-registering to camp with the Grey Gargoyles, be aware of the following:1) A general camp fee will be required of all adults of $25-$30 to cover general camp items. Remaining money from this fee (if any) will be used to help pay for future camp enhancements.2) All campers MUST be ACTIVE participants in either camp setup or camp tear down.3) All campers will have camp assignments prior to Pennsic.4) Failure to perform camp assignments will result in an increased camp-fee for the camper failing to perform their assignment (this increased fee may be used to pay for "imported" Lochac labor to perform that duty or to pay for alcohol or chocolate to dull the annoyance of the camper who found themselves performing the assignment).5) Repeated failure to perform camp assignments will result in not being allowed to camp with the Grey Gargoyles in the future.More detailed information about the Gargoyles camp will come once local events, such as Stone Dog Inn and the Ayreton Carnivale have passed.Thank you.Emmiken die WaeyerLand-Agent for Grey Gargoyles(NOT your mother)
