WELCOME TO WINTER CAMP XVI
It's hard to believe that Winter Camp started 15 years ago as an unorganized gathering of six unusual Arrowmen. That it continues to prosper is tribute to its profound sense of past traditions blended with future ambitions. You presence and enthusiasm will make WCXVI a resounding success.
APPETITES MEET YOUR MATCH
The fare for this year's encampment is hardly suitable for a health food publication, but participants can be assured that they will have twice the recommended daily everything (including calories) for the energy necessary for an active program.
Some traditional favorites will compete with the exciting new edibles at Winter Camp XVI. One of the more interesting dinners will be the Willy Wonka Meal. Everything must be edible for this feast of which the theme is taken from the favorite movie of Steve Donohue.
Always a difficult task, predicting the weather becomes particularly challenging when done from 700 miles away and a week in advance. Yet, the weather forecasts for Winter Camp are as accurate as any and you can be assured that someone will always be disappointed with the end result.
For Winter Camp XVI- colder than average temperatures are predicted for the start of camp, moderating towards the end of the weekette. Precipitation will be scant as a ridge of high pressure is expected to dominate and make breathing difficult for any Tibetan Monks in attendance.
FRANKENSTEIN MEETS WINTER CAMP
Certainly, the monster of Frankenstein is one of the most notorious creatures of movie fame. But, what happens when he meets Winter Campers? You'll have a chance to find out when he makes his debut at D-A.
BIG BRO IS WATCHING
If you think Big Bro is a myth, think again. The U.S. (that's this country not some third world dictatorship) government is currently blocking technology aimed at expanding a digital cellular communications system. Its not for lack of a suitable bandwidth in which to transmit, but ... because it is not possible for the government to monitor the transmissions. Be careful! The thought police may be "hear" at Winter Camp.
QUEST FOR ADVENTURE
Winter Camp has for some time been an interesting blend of adults seeking to retain their youth and the youth rushing towards adulthood. As a result, most activities have provide all ages a chance to get involved on an equal footing. This year, the Quest will depart from the practice as adults provide the challenge stations and the youth pursue the activities. The adults will not escape competition, however, as the youth will evaluate each of the stations.
Winter Campers will want to explore the ever growing volume of literature in the Winter Camp Library. Several new pages have been added to the Word Book completing all the "B" words. The Winter Camp Activity Book makes it debut this year thanks to Steve Donohue and several new recipes have been added to the Food Book.
When you enter the domain of Winter Camp you enter a new time zone. While the official Winter Camp time is measured in flashes, jiffies, blue moons, and hell freezes, you can adjust you wrist timepiece by moving it ahead 17 minutes from Central Standard Time.
Appreciating a greater amount of rest at last year's Winter Camp, the publisher has opted to continue with one giant postcamp edition on the Winter Camp News rather than daily printings. Please submit articles, its your voice to future Winter Campers.
