Info on Camp Mack,

Hi Ladies,

I couldn't help but need to know what to bring for the collage retreat. How about you?

I will bring my pc140 copier with some hp papers so if we need to make copies we have that till the toner goes out and then I'll put a donation bowl out.
I'll bring my usual supplies
I do have a CD player and CD's I'll bring that.

Just got off the phone with Pat Pope.


Bring a blanket to lay on and then a sheet or a sleeping bag as the beds are not soft. I think I'll bring a few top sheets so I can tuck them in and be save for size all the way around. Make sure you bring a pillow too.

But this is the list she has on the paper.

Casual Clothing
Over night necessities,
pillow and towels, robe extra....(No hotel bath stuff there)
Sleeping bag or bedding most of the beds are twin or double
Bottled water and snacks. No alcohol on camp grounds. (Only water is from the bathrooms)
Projects you wish to work on supplies books dvd-(tv's are old though) Music CD that inspire
Creativity or teach a technique and enthusiasm to create.

There is a microwave and small kitchen are by the upstairs bedding area,

We do need someone to bring coffee, cream and sugar, in dry form thanks... and maybe some filters. If you want bring your own tea too.
How about your own coffee cup.
popcorn if you like
and don't forget you camera and batteries etc,

Extension cords but there are a lot of outlets Pat said.

I'll bring my hair dryer and tack irons plus my extension cords. but if you use the tack iron technique you may want to bring your own too.

there are alot of tables there so we are set.

It's not camping out but it's not the hotel scene so we have to make it what we want... but the food is plentiful and good. I hear.

No smoking in the buildings please be respectful..

If you have any question after this email please contact Pat Pope at 630-852-2778

Looking forward to a great time together

There is still room for more collage people to come so please contact Pat Pope.
