How early can I setup camp?
I am working on the assumption that Thur 7/21 is the early registration day if one is not helping with setting up Beemerville. How early on Thur morning can I register and set up my tent? I want to go over to the laps and lunch, but I want to unload all my gear 1st. I have to work until 4:30 Wed. Any suggestions?
On Volunteering and coming in early
[QUOTE=tnk12lt]If I want to arrive early and set up on Wednesday, don't I need to sign up to be a volunteer? [/QUOTE]
Here is the long and the short of it.
The long answer is that we will need several thousand man-hours of volunteer time to run the national rally. We would prefer that [B]everyone[/B] who takes advantage of arriving on Wednesday and setting up camp, would step up to the plate and volunteer somewhere at the rally.
Without the assistance of all of the volunteers, this rally would be 4 times as expensive and not nearly as much fun. BUT -- last year we learned that people who sign-up at the gate just to gain early admission, are njot necessarily honorable enough to [I]actually work[/I] at the shift they signed up for.
However -- and here is the short answer: We won't make anyone turn around and go away if they don't volunteer.
Where can you sign up? Bouncin' Bob is the guy. He can hook you up with something you will enjoy, and your contribution will be appreciated by all of us.
