it's coming up fast

I hope you are all looking forward to our 5th edition of Camp Crop-A-Lot as much as I am!!!

I just wanted to send some reminders about our upcoming retreat:

1. Remember to bring bedding (sleeping bag, pillow and sheet if you want)
2. Slippers are great, since we have to take our shoes off at the hall where we will be scrapbooking.
3. All our meals will be included, but you are encouraged to bring some snacks for late night scrapbooking, or just to munch on throughout the day.
4. If you are taking a workshop, you will have to supply your own adhesive for the project (I would recommend bringing glue sticks, photo squares, and or liquid fast dry adhesive, snail adhesive, if you want- basically your favourite adhesive) and your basics like a paper cutter, scoring tool, bone folder and the like. If you are taking a recipe or mini album class consider contacting us to find out what size photos or recipes to bring so you can FINISH your project on site.
5. The boat leaves Deep Cove at 4:15p.m. Give yourself plenty of time to drive through rush-hour traffic to Deep Cove, and get there about 30 minutes before the boat leaves. You can drive your car down to the top of the dock ramp, and unload your stuff ( about three cars will fit there at one time). Try not to bring everything- we have to fit 35 people and all our supplies into the same boat as last year!)
6. You will have to find parking in Deep Cove. The camp recommends finding a residential side street, since the park parking lot does not allow overnight parking. So you will have to unload your stuff, and park your cars. Don't worry- there will be lots of us, and we will have lots of hands to help 'shlepp' the stuff down the ramp and then back up the hill again to the cropping space! Let's hope the tide is high!!!
7. Try to eat before you come- we will not have dinner at the retreat Friday night, we will have a warm snack around 8:00 p.m.
8. If you want to bring some music cd's you can- we will have access to a radio throughout the day, and we'll plug in some chick flicks to keep us company during the night.
Hmmmm, anything else, will be posted...
