Hi all, I am still in with 1 guest. I have been very busy and am getting ready to count down the time for all of the excitment. Only 2 monhts away. I am back and will be on here more so that I can start planning all the nonsense. I cannot wait to see everyone, meet all you new friends, and just enjoy vacation.
At a minimum, we're bringing Christmas-type lights and playing cards to string on/with them, small light up mushrooms, a few tabletop items and possibly some props from a friend's theater production of Alice in Wonderland.
I'm hoping to bring at least the playing card hand fans (and provide instructions once I get them down) and at least some big papier mache mushrooms, hopefully one with a caterpillar and hookah if I can sculpt a decent looking one.

OK, I'm going to start updating the first page with lists of what each person is bringing. After a few days we should have a pretty good idea of how amazingly camp is shaping up, and if there is anything not accounted for that we think we collectivley need, we can split those things up. If I miss something, let me know, ditto if I put something under your name that you are not bringing.
Here are a few things that have been mentioned that we need materials for:
Croquet game - stuffed flamingo to maul, hedgehog hand puppets to gut, croquet balls, mallet, and those things you hit the hedgehog ball through
mirror - several ideas how to do this, so we need to decide which to try
eat me plate of cookies for passersby - we need cookies, a plate, a sign and maybe a little stand or something to place the plate on

Yeah, when I saw the countdown clock it freaked me out. Last I remember it was 80 days away. And I spent about eight hours getting our list of stuff together and scouring ebay and the internet for suppliers and comparing prices, made a nice list so I could place orders this afternoon, and then the power went out and I hadn't saved the document. Back to google and ebay all over again. Grrr. AND I JUST REALIZED I MISSED THE BEGINNING OF THE NEW LAW & ORDER WITH JEFF GOLDBLUM - SON OF A COULTER I LOVE JEFF GOLDBLUM!
I'll have some sort of eat me treats for sure. I need to make some adjustments, but I will have my flags, flagpole, and lights again. I'll come up with some sort of AiT flag, unless someone already has one.

I think we can be good and not break it, but then again I think it's safest not to bring anything where breakage is too much of a concern, especially if you're talking about borrowing it. I'd say don't worry about borrowing something that you'd then have to worry about, when I'm sure someone will be able to come up with one. We don't even need a full set, and garage sale season is coming, so one of us should be able to find a mallet, a ball and a couple wire thingies for cheap that we don't have to stress about.
Not that I think there is going to be any crazed, destructive croquet playing going on, it just seems like it might be better not to have to worry at all. Maybe I'm just being overly cautious, though.
I think I may be overly cautious, too. It's my mom's, and she doesn't seem to care if it gets hurt or not. I just don't want to hurt it because it isn't really mine and was my grandfather's. I'll bring it if we can't find another, though. We seem to be a good bunch.
