As we nail them down, look here for details about:

Stuff to Bring

Mission Control advises that in addition to clothes (think layers) and such, bring bed linens or sleeping bag, pillow, towel, soap and shampoo (fragrance-free if possible), alarm, clock (or cell phone or other ringy thingy to wake you up in time for breakfast), and your own personal mug if you'd like to cut down on waste, morris kit, instruments, and anything to ensure you (or someone's good time).

Costs: NASA has cut our budget, so...

We have a few items that are available in return for some coin.  The only surprise is that because of costs to us, the ale T-Shirt price has increased from $18 to $20, so if you ordered one, it's a good idea to bring an extra 2 dollars.

Also available, remember that Friday night dinner is not fully funded.  We're asking your help in bringing $5 per person to help us cover those costs.

Did you miss out on the 2008 Ale'election Central t-shirts.  We have a few of these still available for only $12.  It's your chance to cash in on the economic downturn by buying one of these collectors items on the cheap!
