Celia et.al. are providing the charcoal, you bring food to grill and sides.
Rhododendron Park is a great place - there's a wonderful slide and stuff for kids, a ball field, plenty of room to run around. We have the picnic shelter.
I'll be there too - so those of you who have questions about Polycamp or want to hand in your registrations, this is your chance.
Come and have fun
Tree & Celia
On June 15th there will be a pre-camp meeting - send me an email at polycampgoddess AT gmail DOT com and I'll send you the address. The schedule, menu and other hot topics will be discussed and decided on.
Hope to see you there!
June 15th - Polycamp Meeting in Wedgewood
July 31st - Pre-camp Registration ends (if you want meals at camp this is very important!)
August 27th, 2pm, site opens (you can attend camp without pre-registering, just no meals available)
Karaoke, Mad Hatter Tea Party, cool arts n crafts with Woosi Wildwood and Sue Tinney, games...
There's the lake, boats, boffers, hiking, maybe some lawn bowling or croquet???
Workshops in Poly 101, advanced Poly, a discussion with Rosann Hannon, PhD and Dave Hall, PhD on sexuality, poly and families...
This year I'd like to highlight the intersection of Poly & Kink and Poly& Queer and explore these aspects of our overlapping communities....
What would you like to do?
I would like to schedule a large Polycamp Planning meeting (and board meeting) hopefully for the upcoming Sunday evening at my house. I will make a pot of veggie chili for folks to munch on.
The purpose of this meeting will be to delegate a lot of the planning for camp this year - my personal life has blossumed some big problems and I need folks to step up and take over planning of the food, the schedule...pretty much everything but the registration which I want to keep in my hands. And I won't be checking up on folks - we're going to need people who can really follow-through on their commitments and take charge of their areas.
If you'd like to come to the meeting but Sunday evening around 7pm will not work for you, PLEASE email me back with three suggested days and times in the next two weeks. This will give me an opportunity to find a day and time that the most people can attend. We may have two meetings if its necessary.
Please leave any questions in the comments or email me with with your RSVP (polycampgoddess at gmail) then I'll send you address and directions (I'm in Lake Forest Park).

Under the cut tag is more info and ways to take action. Time to mobilize the Poly Community. If Millersylvania closes that's the end of Polycamp.
( How to keep our Park Alive:Collapse )
The State Parks Commission will not make any final decisions until the Legislature approves a 2009-11 budget.
The Legislature is scheduled to adjourn April 26, and a special meeting of the commission will be called a week or two afterward.
That's at least 8 weeks to make a difference.</div></div>

YAY for State Park!

They've given us August 27th - 30th (which is a Thursday thru Sunday. I'll be publishing more details soon. I've got a call into the Ranger's office there to set up a meeting with the Environmental Learning Center so that we'll be on top of what our resources are and responsibilities.
( The ELC comes with the following resources:Collapse )
Where is Millersylvania? Why it's here. In the Olympia part of the world, just 5 minutes off of I-5. Very convenient, yes?
I'm really excited about this folks. This is a great opportunity to make Polycamp really accessible to all aspects of the Poly community around here. After I meet with the Park Rangers I'll be putting out a "Town Hall" meeting for folks who want to chime in on potential changes to Polycamp. Things like providing meals or expanding some activities. We'll have the opportunity now that we're scheduled in From Thursday onward to have two full days of activities on Friday and Saturday. We'll need to discuss carpools and transportation and I don't know what all.
Please drop me a line anytime if you have any suggestions on moving forward.
hugs to all!!!
