[Fwd: [themecamps-announce] TC Annc #2, 01/Greeting/Playa Information] (fwd)
- The second announcement for themecamps from the BM officials-
So, is a meeting tommorow night good for ya'll?
> Hello Theme Camps,
> This is our second theme camp announcement. (If you did not receive
> the first one let us know!) Please pass this information along to
> your other camp mates.
> Every year we find a camp or two that seemed to miss the critical
> point that this is a completely non commercial event. That means that
> no commercial ventures or products should be mentioned in camp names
> and no commercial products can be sold, bartered or distributed at
> all. Hope that is pretty clear.
> AGAIN, please do not email or call asking for your camp location,
> ESPECIALLY if you know us personally. You should no better by now.
> Honestly, we have not begun mapping yet so there is no information to
> be had. Our email volume is over the top. Please refrain.
> GREETER SHIFT SIGN UP:
> Do you have what it takes to be a Greeter? If so, what better way is
> there to kick back to your beloved community than to help out WITH
> YOUR FRIENDS!! Do a shift greeting with your other camp mates.
> Last year the Greeters would not have had the bodies they needed to
> make it happen without theme camps. It was a miracle and we are
> hoping it will happen again. Check out what all of the varying levels
> of participation entail at:
> Check out the URL below to see what shifts are still available. the
> "Request a shift Here" button is a the top of the page. We will get
> you in, but sign up quickly for your ideal shift!
> Also, do you need training for your camp? We will send out some
> Rousting Roosters to give you an On-PLay-Quicky-Training PRE shift.
> Later in the year, after your placement is confirmed, you can
> schedule an appointment from our head Rooster.
> FINDING A CAMP OR EVENT:
