Oh but it still moops, unless it is worn in first, some of the grass always comes loose from being walked on.

Do it. I did CampCAMP @ Alchemy this year. It was beyond a success. We were asked by some burners in Charlotte to bring it to their annual Halloween gala, CarnEvil (and, the genius behind the trailer is a poster on this board...).

There was the gifting hole...the egg lady...gosh. It was something else. If I could get to FB from work, I'd post more pictures.

One of the best parts, our "art" of empty beer cans all over the place, and the yelling we did at people who tried to pick them up.

Then the encouragement given to those who, at the end of the event, tried again. :twisted:

Oh! And in the middle of nowhere on top of a mountain, Georgia, we had a TV in the front yard - a working TV.

...I'd consider a different name, too. Something with less 100% association with something else...retro-kitsch is a cute idea, I'm sure there's a plethora of names that would better highlight how wonderful your camp will be.

Thanks to you C.f.M, RETROFROLIC shall be our camp name.

Mixtures of vodka and a variety of Absinthes served the classic way will be available to our guests.

Clothespins shall be dropped from the top of a ladder into a large-mouth bottle. The successful pins shall then be attached to the anatomy of the opponent. Last one standing wins!

Other pleasure/pain quanderies shall be forthcoming for odd entertainment and interactivity. To be sure, come nightfall, the St. Andrew's Cross, floggers, furries and violet wands will create a scene of agony and Xtacy For those who want to explore their submissive OR Dominant side, RETROFROLIC is the place.

flamingos must be fed a lot of shrimp (er, krill?) to maintain a pink hue

I understand this thread is hella old.
But, it was still a lot of fun to read as a sort of a blast from the past.
To think, that there was a time when Retrofrolic was but a seedling of an idea!

Other camps have started here. Apokiliptika. Booby Bar (or at least eplaya bar camp).

Hm...

And, um, many more...
