Alright, so everybody's returned from the Playa and winter has set in. |
I've chatted a bit in person with Kristan and Graeme and I thought I should bring it here so we can all weigh in.
What sorts of things would we like to see in our camp? Here's my list
A big central tent tall enough for an aerial rig and of course the accompanying rig, a stage and viewing area, and equipment for playing and teaching and performing.
A camp vehicle of some sort. I had an idea for a mobile rigging structure that converts to a four section hammock and it'd be pulled by some sort of tractor. This is probably a little overzealous for the first year though, especially given that we have to build the tent too.
We can probably deal with basic camp infrastructure as we get a better idea of who will be wanting to camp with us really. Things like, are we doing a central kitchen? Do we as a camp want a shower? What is our trash plan? Do we want to put up a shade structure over the tent area like hardware did?
Do we do fund raising or dues or a combination? Given the nature of our camp we could probably put together a kick ass performance for a fund raiser, so I think that's something we should certainly keep in mind. It would probably also be a good idea to get an overarching plan written up so we can apply for grants. But we need to do a really good job of selling our concept if that's the case.
So what do y'all have to say?
