WINTER CAMP XIX NEWS
PRECAMP EDITION


Jeff Rand, Publisher

Welcome to Winter Camp XIX

The rest of your life begins today. Winter Camp XIX will affect your life in ways you can hardly imagine. After all, this may be the Winter Camp where we have a visitor from the future. Enjoy!

Take a Moment

Although the official unit of time at Winter Camp is the jiffy, don't forget to set your clocks ahead 77 minutes as you enter the Winter Camp Time Zone. This way you'll better adjust to the late hours known to be kept in these parts.

Uff Da!

Explorers will set sail for the new lands to the west of the shallow sea of St. Clair. Following the great traditions of the Norsemen, they will meet the challenges of Winter Camp XIX

Several thematic events will be held this year. Wednesday will feature Viking Olympics; Thursday will provide curling and Viking Explorers; and festivities will culminate on Saturday will the Viking Feast and Night at the Tavern. (Sorry, its not the White Horse.)

Arrowman are encouraged to dress and act the part for these Viking activities. However, indiscriminate sacking and pillaging will be discouraged.

How Many Times Have We?

The Winter Camp Almanac and Book of Facts has been expanded this year. It may just provide the knowledge you seek regarding Winter Camp.

Welcome World

Kyle Storm Howey entered conscious existence last summer. Kyle shares half of the genes of John Howey.

Karley Rae Annice Horn completed qualifications as a Tert this past month. Mister Horn participated in the creation of Karley.

A miserly recommendation has been offered for the two to marry in the future, thus avoiding the need for Karley to change her monogram.
