Re: Tickets for a First Time Camp

Placement and Ticketing DGS are redoing their entire philosophy based on past camp ticket entitlement abuse.

No one knows in advance what the new system will be until the BORG announces it.

I think I shared an elevator with Gordon on Wednesday. His family is prominent in supporting homeless services here. Villain or hero, we will see.

Re: Educating the masses.

The preliminary census shows virgins significantly down. It only takes a small number of MOOPers to cause a problem. But if virgins are down and MOOP up, we may have a very serious problem: veteran MOOPers. Ditto, 447 MOOPers. Good do-ocracy plan to do! I would guess the powers that be would like to...
