Yay this one worked!

It's never too early to think about Falcon Ridge! It's a mere 6 weeks away. Who's going to be there? If all works out according to plan, I'll be arriving on Wednesday afternoon, wandering around with the Camp Dar banner and wondering where the heck I will be camping.

Also, assume that the "Nope!" Option should read "Nope! I will be skipping it!" (unless Josh can work his magic and change it).

My family of 4 will attend again this year as volunteers as long as Kate can get the time off from work. She got Clearwater off so hopefully she will get FR off as well.
Songbill · 17 years, 8 months ago
I'll be there-- in Camp Shelly, wherever that will be. TIme once again to spend over $200 on gas to drive there.
Andrea Krause Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
But we'll give you more than $200 worth of lovin'.
lawrence · 17 years, 8 months ago
I know I definitely won't be there. Where's my option for that?
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
Ah. Crap. This is why I should not write polls when I'm half awake at work. Assume that "Nope! I will not be skipping it!" means "Nope! I WILL be skipping it!"
Mamalissa! · 17 years, 8 months ago
Where the hell will I be camping? Will there be an upstairs and a downstairs? I'm so confused!
Kat Kunz · 17 years, 8 months ago
flying in (!), which is a first. thank heavens for my fambly, who will be bringing my tent and other sundry supplies. Plus, all the trauma of "where to camp??!!111one" will have been sorted out by the time I arrive! hooray!
ChrisChin is Getting Old Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
yaye! I get to see Kat, Jillmom, and Julius again! Whee!

Once we are there and see how are cell phones work we can have a Falcon Ridge Telephone Poll.
John J. Ryan Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
Maybe someone can head up and see if cell phone service will actually work there ahead of time.

skipping this year to save for the wedding and to attend school and to work and all of that. feel free to do a celebratory dance.
Misch Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
We will not celebrate that. We will find other things to celebrate.
Talcott · 17 years, 8 months ago
I'd love to go this year, but seeing as I'll be in the midst of moving to the mythical land of Ohio, I don't quite think I'll be able to pull it off (both for time and money).

Once again, FRFF should be in late October.
And Ohio ;-)

um, as far as 'Camp Shelly', we don't know if -i- will be there yet; i'm all set up with my usual 'early crew' status and such, i've just yet to get my time off approved. the glitch is that we're now a department of 4{and helpers} and my supervisor requested off a month earlier than i for the same week.... our manager doesn't have a problem as long as my work's done/caught up/everything needing done while i'm out is done the week before i go, but our grand poobette boss hasta sign-off on it and she hasn't yet.{which is making me stressy} so please say LOTS of prayers, chants, cross ALL crossables, etc and let's hope i can be there! if not, i'll hafta figure out how to get 'the lobby', the flag & flagpole, my plethora of EFO tarps, and other camp staples that always reside with me through the year to someone. eeeeek!!!

but, man, i HOPE it's all good; i hate to even think of missing it, especially the fun of my early crew family....not to MENTION our family reunion!!!

Would it help if the Mayor of Shantytown spoke with your boss? I have a surprising amount of political power even though my town is so economically disadvantaged.
Gordondon son of Ethelred · 17 years, 8 months ago
I bought my clearwater tickets and I'm going but there are a ton of conflicts that Saturday. Billy Jonas is playing at my friend's coffeehouse series and ice cream is going to be served. Red Molly is playing at another coffeehouse and they have make your own sundaes. Melissa is having her going away party. I bet they serve ice cream. Can I clone myself?
Paul Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
That is a tough call passing up ice cream and music! Cloning is still illegal I think. How about altering the time space continuum so you can attend them all?
Speaking of alternate we are attending this event today in Amherst, MA.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
the big question is how this ended up on the frff forum. It was supposed to be on teh clearwater one.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
I just check out the event, The alt.newengland picnic:
Pagan? Gamer? Goth? Queer? Poly? Kinky? Trans? All of the above? Some of the above? None of the above - but really, some of your best friends are? There's probably somebody else in you flavor of freak here.

You really aren't paranoid enough. This is clearly a clever ruse to get all the "wrong thinking people" together and get their names on The List
Shelly · 17 years, 8 months ago
so i got approval for my time off for falcon ridge{along with a 2-paragraph signed-in-red-pen 'this must be done or no deal disclaimer from my boss!!}

but WOOOOT!!!!

-AND- i just bought my new tent and waterproofed it.

let the planning commence!!!
Kat Kunz Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
yaaaaaay shells! A FRFF w/o Shells and her Advance Team of Ninjas is like no FRFF at all. w00t w00t w00t indeed! (See above post about me, mom and daddy all coming, and please reserve our tent space accordingly.)
Kris 'engaged' Bedient · 17 years, 8 months ago
I'll be there. I'm coming up Wednesday afternoon. I'll be doing stage crew again this year, but I promise to be around more.

I don't know if there will be upstairs/downstairs like previously, but I'll be downstairs if there is one.
john r · 17 years, 8 months ago
I will definitely be there camping at the GFP, wherever that will be. i think we will put up some road signs. we are adding a mist canopy this year in case it is really hot. last year a few budgiedomers came up to the GFP for a drum workshop led by cadence carroll. she is willing to do this again, but she will not be there until friday. we have to take a good look at the final schedule to see if we can fit it in. (last year it was on a thursday afternoon when the schedule was light. i will let you know if we do have it.

Slightly off topic but I've acquired a couple of solar panels, a battery and an inverter so we will have a couple of lights hanging from the roof (still need to figure out the best way to do this). I will be able to supply a modest amount of AC or DC power should anyone need it.

Sorry still no airconditioning.
Gordondon son of Ethelred Back · 17 years, 8 months ago
As long as the hot tub is working I'm fine with it.
Phoenix · 17 years, 8 months ago
I'll be there :)
Expecting Baby #2 in Octo · 17 years, 7 months ago
JJRRutgers and I will be in attendance, unlike last year when I cried for a week afterwards looking at all the fun pics. POOP ON THAT! We're coming back (with more tattoos....well, me anyways....John's a wussy)! YAYAYAY
John J. Ryan Back · 17 years, 7 months ago
Along those lines, looks like we're aiming to camp in lower camping again.  Is anyone saving space down there?  With no Shelly to help us ahead of time, it looks like it may be a little more choatic than usual...
Kris 'engaged' Bedient Back · 17 years, 7 months ago
Ummm, but Shelly will be there ahead of time, as she got the requested time off. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
Andrea Krause Back · 17 years, 7 months ago
I believe Shelly took a new job and the training for it necessitated her not going to FRFF this year.  Now we have a bit of chaos. :)
Kat Kunz Back · 17 years, 7 months ago
Yeah, it's basically a we-won't-know-what-we-can-get-till-we-get-there situation. The goal is to have some kind of Lobby/Pavilion setup that we can congregate under, and if people have to tent elsewhere, so be it--at least we'll have a gathering space. Ideally, we'll all be tenting and hanging together, but... *shrugs*

Heck, I'm flying in on Thursday, so don't ask me. :) My 'rents are going to do their best, and some other folks said they'd try to get there early, but we can't make any guarantees. Once we do have a camp, I think my mom said she'd mark it on a printout of the .pdf map and put it on the bulletin board for later arrivals.
Expecting Baby #2 in Octo · 17 years, 7 months ago
When are you guys expecting to get there? Maybe someone can attempt to "save" a couple spots at lower camp or do a rope-off kinda thing? :::Envisions Fruheads with big water guns ready to fire at intruders::: LOL!
