    For those who want to spend the night(s) you may all stay in Pilgrim's Lodge. There is a large open space on the ground floor with nine bedrooms (3 bunks in each) on the second floor. The campers will sleep in cabins with designated counselors. You may arrive as early as 5:00pm Friday evening if you wish to settle in to your room. The campers will arrive between 6:00 and 7:00pm. The program will start promptly at 7:00pm Friday evening. A few costumed characters during registration (6-7pm) would be a nice touch!!! Meals, of course, will be provided to all in attendance throughout the weekend. An accurate head count will be needed as we get closer. Registrations are just starting to come in and we currently have 13 kids assigned to cabins. We should easily double or triple that number. I will continue to provide updates on the count and schedule as the weekend approaches. This is a guaranteed good time!!! :)

    UPDATE: 21 kids are now registered but we are still expecting the typical "last minute" rush. A small article promoting the camp is also running this weekend in community papers in Hamburg, Gowanda, South Buffalo, Kenmore and parts of Amherst. Channel 7 News has replied to a press release we sent out and wants to shoot video during the weekend and do a story on the camp. For those of you with kids of your own... feel free to bring them along!!! I will just need to know ahead of time so the kitchen can plan for meals. They may stay with you in the lodge, or if they'd like could stay in a cabin with the other kids. I will be at the meeting tomorrow evening if anyone would like to know more about the weekend. :)

    I'll definitely be there. My costume is finished! I don't know if I'll be able to stay over night. I would have to find someone to take care of my dogs.

    UPDATE: We have now received 28 registrations (25 boys; 3 girls). We have also had a handful of inquiries which may yet result in more registrations. Looking forward to a great weekend!!! :)

    Me, Peter, and William will try to arrive on Friday night, but may not be ready to suit up by registration time. We have to drop Katherine off at Seven Hills (Girl scout camp) in Holland, NY. If it gets, too late, we'll arrive early Saturday morning.

    Thank you all for your status updates. For those of you attending I think you are in for a great weekend. For those unable to attend, maybe next year??? The entire weekend is scheduled but that schedule is flexible. Rain may be an issue for part of Saturday but it won't slow us down. We have a good mix of both indoor and outdoor activities scheduled. Can't wait to get started!!! Please feel free to message me with ANY questions you may have about the weekend. THANK YOU!!! > DCC_Jedi (Mike Hanes)

    We are all incredible excited about this weekend!!

    A quick FYI: AJ's flight lands around 3. If he is delayed, we may not arrive by 5 but we will get there ASAP.

    Sadly I'm not going to be able to make this one. Too many assignments and errands have popped up that I have to take care of this weekend. Have fun!

    It seems like we have a great collection of club members already committed to this event. I would say that others who can't make it shouldn't feel bad other than to miss what promises to be a lot of fun. :)

    One quick thing for those attending... Bring your own bedding. There are bunks but bedding is not supplied like at a hotel. I just use a sleeping bag but some prefer actual bedding. The bunks are twin size. :)
