    Sooo....

    ...CPR training for athletics as well as overeating events. Sounds like we need to have an Outdoors CPR training class

    Who will step up to the challenge?

    We have, on the sign up sheet, 19 members + 13 guests(not including Gumbo and Timberrr's guests. Are you each others guests ?). So that is 32 signed up so far.

    -MightyMouse and Duffy, samsara. I know your coming barring Devine intervention. That makes 35.
    -Ewker, we're still thinking of you. Come on down, it's a short 1 day drive and you don't have to hike in
    -Running Feather, I'm so glad you decided to come back. I need someone who likes fire as much as me

    It's not mandatory to sign up, but, it is helpful for those planning foods for others.

    Hope to see you there.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    On Gumbo's first post is the Attendance Spreadsheet link and Planning Spreadsheets link.

    On the Spreadsheet, she included on the bottom, 3 tabs: Meals, Supplies and Equipment, and FH4 Activities Sign Up.

    Please take a few moments to see what you may want to consider helping with. Thanks in advance.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    I've never known anyone to have a problem before. Car campers are welcome.

    We do ask that you be considerate of those with smaller children, leaving the sites closest to the toilets for them and some sites close to the gathering area are reserved for our vendors and organizers. In both cases, these practices have been adopted to ensure everyone's greatest possible enjoyment.

    P.S. Welcome to the wonderful world of hammocking!

    Raffle

    I wanted to ask the community about something related to the raffle. In years past we have drawn from each tier and then put all tickets back in give everyone an equal chance at winning the grand prize or tier one items.

    It is not uncommon for the items in tier one to be valued well over 100. Would anyone feel slighted if we limited any one person to a single tier one win, regardless of how many raffle tickets were purchased?

    In other words, once you select your tier one win, you can't win a second tier one prize. This would apply only to the top tier. My thought is that this would be in keeping with the spirit of the raffle, thereby giving the most people the chance to win. Again, my only motivation is to ensure the greatest amount of fun by everyone who participates in the hang.

    I'm just thinking out loud here and have not changed or published the rules for the raffle yet. I feel it is something that needs to be settled before people start getting tickets.

    I'm in for the "1-win per person, on top tier" group. Multiple tickets will still give you the best chance to win, but allow for others to also enjoy in the fun. Good call.
