Published by the underground for a free Winter Camp, the Brothers of the Allogagan (BOA).
FAKE MINISTRY OF TOURISM
Yesterday, members of the BOA learned the truth concerning the Ministry of Tourism. This government agency is nothing more than a front for the secret police. Arrowmen are encouraged to offer no aid or assistance to this agency. It seeks only to repress free thought, speech, and activity at Winter Camp.
A free society should never have a secret police force to watch it citizens. When any government engages in this activity it breaks the spirit of its peoples. Ultimately this will spell its end and cause anarchy.
BOA TAKES ASSAULT
The BOA which represents freedom for Winter Camp has implemented its campaign against the government. Yesterday, the movement began to spread the word of freedom causing widespread anti-government activity. As the interest continues to grow, the BOA fully expects to topple the bureaucratic socialist government.
FOOD SHORTAGES ANNOUNCED
In order to combat its continuous labor problems, the government has announced austerity measures in its food allocations. Tomorrow, Arrowmen will be imprisoned during breakfast and forced to beg for grits in a tin cup. The allocations department has determined that the Winter Campers should receive no more than 500 calories during this meal. Research conducted in World War II prison camps demonstrated that meals such as this eventually erode the spirit of the prisoners and leave them as virtually mindless slaves.
WINTER CAMP WEATHER
Expectations of snow for Winter Camp usually mark the hopes of its participants. But todays weather may not be as expected. A moving frontal system may provide some precipitation.
Over the years, weather at Winter Camp has been quite variable. Winter Camp VII was the coldest, with a low temperature of -6 degrees. The warmest was Winter Camp VI at 57 degrees. The following is a summary of the weather at Winter Camp:
CAMP HIGH LOW PRECIPITATION I 30 10 3 in. snow II 30 15 8 in. snow III 38 16 5 in. snow, rain IV 40 15 4 in. snow, rain V 36 12 6 in. snow, rain VI 57 15 rain, 2 in. snow VII 16 -6 8 in. snow VIII 57 16 4 in. snow, sleet, rain IX 34 -3 10 in. snow X 37 26 1 in. snow, sleet, rain
WINTER CAMP ECONOMY IN TURMOIL
The government controlled economy is already in turmoil as productivity has dropped 25%. It would appear that a "black market" economy is taking form to fill the void and provide much needed services.
The government's policy on currency poses some question as to its integrity and may encourage counterfeiting.
Currency has for some time been a problem at Winter Camp. Winter Camps I, II, and III had no currency and therefore involved a strictly bartering system. Currency was introduced at Winter Camp IV, but its unusual denominations made trade difficult. At Winter Camp V, $55,000 were printed, yet too much circulation caused production shortages in a price controlled environment.
Less currency was issued for Winter Camps VI, VII and VIII, but "old money" still plagued the system. Winter camps IX and X reverted back to the barter system.
LET FREEDOM RING
Brothers, stand together so that Winter Camp can be a place were free men can think, speak, and act with true conviction.
