The 2014 California Morris Ale
Presented by Rising Phoenix Morris
Upon arrival each team will be presented with a set of clues to a mystery. Towards the end of the feast Saturday night each team will be asked to present their findings for their mystery, including the victim, motive, means, opportunity, and proof.
We will have craft beers and cider. The camp will provide sodas for lunch and we will have some water on the tours. You may want to bring a refillable water bottle. Any booze other than the above is BYO. Those of you bringing anyone under the age of 21 will be responsible for their not drinking any alcohol and personally liable for any consequences if they do drink any.
There is a wonderful seafood dive on the corner of PCH and the street leading to the camp called Neptune’s Net (your land mark for that turn anyway). As far as we know they close around 7 or 8 in the evening. We will have dinner available between about 6 & 8 in the evening on Friday for a suggested donation of $8.00 per person (this is not provided by the camp or included in your ale fees). We will have both meat and vegetarian options. In addition, the camp will provide light munchies through the evening.
We will be contacting everyone by email who said they needed transportation assistance. If you need it and don't here from us, please contact us ASAP.
Likewise we will send the menu to everyone who indicated
they had special dietary considerations (vegetarians are just not that special
anymore). If the menu is in anyway unworkable for you, please let us know ASAP
and we will see how we can accommodate you. But it looks like everyone should be
able to eat plenty of what’s there.
||That other stuff:
*One of our guests is highly allergic to lavender. Please refrain from bringing or using any personal products containing lavender for the weekend. We also have a few folks sensitive to perfumes – your consideration with this is greatly appreciated

We may need help shuttling our out-of-town friends on Sunday to
the pub stop and onwards to the airports. There will be a sign-up sheet at the
registration desk to hook up those who can offer rides with those who need them.
