Winter Camp XI - 1987
SUNDAY, DECEMBER 27, 1987
VOLUME 1 ISSUE 1
Published by the underground for a free Winter Camp, the Brothers of the Allogagan (BOA).
BROTHERS SPEAK OUT!
A repressive socialist regime has assumed power at Winter Camp and now controls the official Winter Camp press.
The Brothers of the Allogagan (BOA) believe that a free press is a fundamental right in "any" society and seek it to be so at Winter Camp. Unfortunately the government has not reacted favorably towards peaceful attempts to use this right. The only means left to the BOA is to go underground and publish "The Allogagan" as a free voice of the people.
Brothers, you can speak out and spread the news of the BOA. As the movement continues to grow, your support will help achieve victory.
WINTER CAMP ADVISOR IS ALIEN
Reliable sources from within the government have told the BOA that the Winter Camp Advisor is an alien. Yet, he continues to hold vicious control over the lives of Arrowman citizens at Winter Camp. While he proceeds to profess the virtues of socialism, one can only liken him to the powerful leader of Nazi Germany, Adolph Hitler, who also was a secret alien.
WINTER CAMP FAMILIES MAKE CHANGES
During the period between Winter Camps X and XI several Winter Campers have taken strides towards changes in their family structures.
Roger Horn in conjunction with his wife Jamie, produced a new daughter named Kelsey Lynn. Kelsey was born on May 30, 1987. She is said to be somewhat disappointed, however, that her birth occurred indoors.
Mike Osvath and Mark Bollman have announced their nuptial plans. Many were quite shocked when Mike developed wedding plans last summer.
WINTER CAMP FUTURE SOCIETY FORMS
During some discussions held at the last Winter Camp, the Winter Camp Future Society was formed. Members attending three or more Winter Camps are entitled to join.
Besides establishing a set of bylaws, the society prepared some predictions about Winter Camps 20, 50, and 100. Some of the more interesting predictions include: weight gain for Mike Osvath, a female to attend Winter Camp, and the survival of the cayenne pepper.
HOWEY AWARD QUESTIONED
On October 9, 1981 during a Court of Honor held at the Lincoln Park Band Shell, John Howey was presented the Environmental Science Merit Badge. Recent evidence indicates there to be some question that he spent the required number of hours performing field observations for requirement number 3. While John received his Life Badge at this Court of Honor, this merit badge is required for Eagle and he may be asked to surrender his Eagle Award.
TIME CHANGE COMING
On December 31, 1987 one second will be added to the day. Due to the dampening effect of the tides, the rotation of the earth has been slowing at a rate of 1 second every century. A second will be added this year to account for the accumulated error of the past 100 years. Interestingly, at this rate the earth will stop spinning in 315,569,520,000 years.
Since the official Winter Camp Time is based on the flash which always remains constant, there will be no need to adjust your jiffy clock or blue moon calendar.
When converting flashes or jiffies to earth standards, it will be necessary to account for this extra second. For Example: 10:00 am. December 27, 1988 is 33 blue moons, 5778.334970 jiffies instead of 5778.333906 jiffies.
WINTER CAMP ATTENDANCE RATES CALCULATED
The average Winter Camp participant has attended 2.77 Winter Camps. Of those who are attending for their first time 58.7% return at least once, 50.8% come back at least twice, and 46.8% return three or more times.
