Just strap on their floaties and put 'em in the pool. No family hates a pool vacation...

I would definitely come (to see Dr. T's shirts...among other things), but my wife probably wouldn't allow it with a newborn (due August 7th).

...Next year...

That would be perfect. The entire group can make a blanket, booties, onesie and hat for the little chap. Very Happy

*sigh* So my west coast vacation, while wonderful, ended up costing me a lot more than I'd expected (especially the freaking car rental in Portland. Never rent a car in Portland!) so now I'm doubting my ability to afford to drive to NY. *double sigh*

Ok, so unless something unexpected comes up between now and then, I should be able to make the drive out there. http://goo.gl/maps/y5mi8
As well as maybe stopping by a couple of other places and people on the way. There are a bunch of people in Chicago. I'll have to see about contacting a few.

I will have to check with the rental car company first, but I was planning on going through Ontario on the return trip. Possibly come and visit a few of you canadians in the toronto area.

In addition to some of the maille, I'll bring a Ringinator EZ for folks to play with. Bring some coils Very Happy

Now for the knowledgeable ones, is it a wooded camping area? Big trees? Can I use something like this: http://www.hennessyhammock.com/ or is it the more traditional stake-in-ground tents?

Yes, it was a wooded area. Assuming we have the same spot at last time i would guess that would be fine.

I wouldn't be comfortable in a hammock, but if you would, then there are plenty of trees to hang your "tent" from.

OK, so, final details!

Prices have not changed:
Camping: $20 per person (two nights! Sorry, it's required even if you only use one)
Event: $37 per person (Under 12 free)

It would be great if everyone could get their reservation in for camping in the next few weeks, to ensure we have enough spots. You can get this reservation by sending your full amount for the fest & camping!

I can take PayPal at: blaise@hsyst.us
or you can send a check/money order/cash/firstborn child/blood diamonds to:
Blaise Hartley
270 Pawling Ave.
Troy, NY 12180 USA

If you are just coming for the day of the event, it would be great if you could still send the money ahead of time, but not an absolute requirement.

It seems like that just an added expense unless you're planning on a sacrifice or a snackrifice.

Ahhh a Hennessy hammock, I love mine!

Unfortunately, there has been a wedding planned for the weekend and I cannot attend. I really wish I could but will promise that next year I will be in attendance.
