    And what do we do after we roast the marsh-mellons?
    I believe it?s what you humans call, a sing-a-long.


    Grab your sleeping bags, get ready to pitch the tent, start rubbing those sticks together...
    The first ever, FanForce Camp-Out is in the works. The Toronto Long Line and Young Jedi Niagara, along with Buffalo, Syracuse, Rochester and other NY FanForce chapters are planning on spending an evening round the ol? campfire. But don?t fill up on the Smores, because we?re going to be camping at Six-Flags Darien Lake where there are dozens of rides designed to make you toss your cookies. Roller Coasters. Roller Coasters. Roller Coasters.

    So a day of rides. An evening of camping. The potential to be the largest SW fan gathering since Celebration. Sound like fun? Yeah. But here?s the catch...

    We need rides. Drivers and vehicles.
    We need to reserve in advance ? that means moolah asap.

    Take care of those two things and we?re on our way to a weekend of fun. So here?s the Plan?. We head down Saturday morning, bright and early. The cost of admission is $50 Cdn. This covers your campsite and unlimited use of the rides at Darien Lake. We spend Saturday at the park, camp overnight and return mid-late afternoon on Sunday.

    If you have a vehicle and are willing to drive people to the park, then we?re willing to fill your tank. The group will pay for the costs of gas for anyone who chooses to drive at least one other person.

    Admission to the park is actually on a sliding scale, with the price dropping the more people who go. I?ve set the cost mid-way along the scale but if there is money left over, we will throw that into the group kitty to fund the aforementioned gas costs and future club events. We will need to reserve as quickly in advance as possible. I will handle the booking and put it all on my credit card provided you give me the cash upfront.

    I hope to be able to make it, but can't confirm.

    Sounds like fun. I've been to Darien Lake a few times - fun place.

    What, you mean in the pouring rain? I hope not.

    Each campsite can hold up to six people, so when I book mine, that will insure at least six of us are taken care of. If we can get over six to confirm by this weekend, we could concievably reserve an extra campsite to have a couple of spots in reserve for those who aren't sure and still not be out of pocket if they choose not to come.

    I'm in pretty much the same situation as Nyla, I'm afraid. August will hopefully mean a major job shift for me, problem is, it means I can't leave the city that month, or until it happens (whichever comes first). But there is always the next one!

    I'd love to come, but I don't think I can confirm at this time. If you've still got space in your camp later on when I have money, I'm in, but I can't say anything for certain at this time sadly.

    okay.
    So it looks like the vast, vast majority of us are working, broke or both. I'm personally bowing out so I can take the time to focus on the impending wedded bliss that looms on the horizon.

    Those of you who are interested in going to the Darien Lake campout, I suggest you head over to the Niagara forum and contact YJN.

    Maybe we can have a 'too wussy to go into the woods' movie night at my place some time. I'll cook up some Dr.Pepper smores and we can watch some camping classics like, Friday the 13th, the Blair Witch Project and Meatballs. Anyone interested? Anyone in the city prefer to host the event to save everyone the journey out to Miss.?
