The preparations are going great. Rob Lineberger is doing so much. We'd
be in really sad shape if it weren't for Rob.

14 paid as of today. 18 registered. Getting closer.

Rob Lineberger has been putting in more time on this than I can give him
things to do. Maybe Rob has things he wants help with. :)
There are standing offers from other folks close by also, Dave Powell in
particular. We'll take more advantage of these offers closer to the week
of camp. A lot of things can't be done until later.

Our biggest help problem will be finding people who aren't actually
going to be attending boot camp to help with things *during* boot camp.
It's a tremendous distraction for a boot camper to have duties during
boot camp. So it would be good if we could find other people, maybe
people who have already been to boot camp, to do things like do the
photography during class, run in food orders to our vendors and pick up
the lunches, get the coffee started in the morning, and drive the van
back and forth between the hotel and class in the morning and evening
(that requires someone from my department, though).
I imagine the Saturday before boot camp will be pretty busy with going
to Costco, lots of printing and assembling packets and badges, hanging
signs, etc.. My marine science project is actually hosting a data
management conference the three work days before boot camp. So that's
going to be kind of weird.
It's great that Paul Smith is hosting our regular meeting next week,
also. Lots of people doing different pieces of the whole is nice. We're
moving along with creating a well oiled machine.
Tomorrow or in the next few days we'll probably start an email list for
the new campers.
