Thought I would stop in.
Yo, It's Sam. I was wandering about the web and was curious if anyone still used this anymore?

Been a while since I have seen regulars from pods. ^.^

Hope everyone is doing well! Heehehe

Current Mood: curious

Full refund of the $31.00, and they were very nice about it. No problems.
Per part of the message I got back in one of my emails to Reserve America:

"We do not cancel or change any reservation through a web mail request.
Please call Customer Service at 877-612-1100 about this reservation."

I called the number and held until someone picked up. It was very smooth, the gentleman was very nice about it, and I was provided a full refund of the $31.00 I was charged for my one site for the 13th through the 15th. I was not charged a $9.00 cancellation fee.

I don't know if Eric L has had any luck in getting them to automatically refund all of us which have made reservations for the invalid date, but if it turns out you need to call yourself, do it quickly just to be sure you don't run into any technicalities that cause your call experience to be more difficult.

I will continue to be a Reserve America customer, and am looking forward to a summer of camping here-and-there.

Luck to you all,

Devil's Hopyard is Officially NOT OPEN next weekend (April 13th-15th)
I have received official word from the state office that manages Devil's Hopyard that the campground is not open until April 20th. I will be calling Reserve America this afternoon for my particular reservation, asking for a full refund, including the $9.00 cancellation fee, since the reservation is wholly invalid. I will let you know how that goes.

From the results of the poll, its almost evenly split (for the few who have responded to the LJ and Yahoo! polls combined) on preference for before or on Easter weekend. Unfortunately, the CT Department of Parks and Recreation is unanimous on their lack of open-ness before Easter weekend. Sorry I forgot to do this research last night when I set up the original polls. Please continue with this poll. Results will be tallied at the PODS afterparty during a little "ok, this is the date" Q&A session I will hold (and then post teh rezultz).

Poll #664862 BELTANE - AFTER EASTER WEEKEND? (21-23rd)

Hello again. As it turns out, no state park is open before Easter Weekend in CT this year. As a result, I am running another poll.

I would rather have Beltane on Easter Weekend (14-16th)
I would rather have Beltane the weekend AFTER Easter (21-23rd)
It does not matter to me, I can attend either of these two weekends.
I cannot attend either weekend.

Poll #664266 BELTANE 2006 - EASTER WEEKEND?


NO - I will not be able to go to Beltane on Easter Weekend.
YES - I can go to Beltane on Easter Weekend.
BLAH - I would rather Beltane be held the previous weekend (April 7-9).
HEY! - I would NOT be able to attend Beltane if it was scheduled for the PREVIOUS WEEKEND
*SHRUG* - I can attend Beltane REGARDLESS of whether it is scheduled Easter Weekend or the previous weekend.
WAAAH! - I cannot go to Beltane with the presented dates.

Ok, all Beltaine money is do this Thursday with no exceptions. If for whatever reason you can not pay then you MUST talk to me PERSONALLY so that I can evaluate the situation and find an appropriate solution. The following people are going to Beltaine:

Rene, Jon, Brendan, Sharon, Sam Kim, Amanda, Sharayah, Matt Riggs, Melissa, Raff, Ray, Mary, Sarah, Steve, Roger, Eric the Elven, Brendan Miles, Katelyn Pratt, Cid, Schnapp, Ian, Jess (Bob) and Jessica's unidentified four friends.

Some of you have payed already and I thank you greatly for that. The rest though owe money, you all should know who you are (Amanda you are fine now by the way).

We have also discussed Cars. There are 11 cars total going that will be staying onsite, leaving us with room for extra cars if needed which is fine. We believe all but the following are fine for rides:

Cid, Schnapp, Ian, Jessica, and Jessica's unidentified four friends.

If anyone wants to claim them for driving, you will have the ability to do so on Thursday.

For tents we believe that the following people have extra space THAT WE KNOW OF in their tents:

Raff (4 spaces), Eric (4 spaces), Sam (1 space), Roger (4 spaces)

Those tents alone are able to accomodate the remainder of people who we think do not have tents right now which would be the following (making the assumption that Rene and Jon have their own tent):

Ray, Mary, Katelyn, Cid, Schnapp, Jessica, and Jessica's unidentified four friends.

That leaves plenty of space, and only takes into accounts the tents that we currently know exist.

Food is already being bought. If you want any form of junk food, you best bring it yourself though because there is no junk food on our grocery list this year...you have been warned.

We will discuss Beltaine in depth tommorow but those are just some heads up for all of you to prepare and GET TWENTY DOLLARS OUT OF THE BANK AND INTO MY HANDS!!! *sigh* That is all.

Beltaine Planning
Cross Posted to:
UConnPODS Live Journal Group,

UConnPODS Yahoo Group

Dear Podlings:

This is your loving Co-Pres Haldan speaking. I got a chance to have a nice chat with Frank today and we together came to a decision about the planning of the Beltaine ritual. It will be done across the course of two-three meetings (depending on how well things go). The meetings will be as follows:

Prior to PODS on Thursday, February 25, 5:30 pm-6:30 pm
This meeting will be a general brainstorming meetings. The emphasis will be on "What are good ideas for a Beltaine Ritual" and Frank and myself will add in ideas that we have already discussed some.

Prior to PODS on Thursday, March 3, 5:30 pm-6:30 pm
This meeting will be to take the list from the prior week and pick out the ideas that work. New ideas will most likely not be heard since that was the purpose of the prior meeting. Emphasis will be on actual ritual elements and ordering of the elements.

Prior to PODS on Thursday, March 17, 5:30 pm-6:30 pm
Depending on how things go, this meeting may not be required. If it occurs, the emphasis will be on finalizing plans, possible filling in some gaps that people will work on over the break period.

The finalized ritual will be presented to the group on March 17th. PLEASE NOTE: The presentation will not be a discussion session, unless it is to point out a major flaw (example: not appropriate cleansing done). This is not a time to complain and state that it should be done a different way, that is what the planning sessions are for.

If you are unable to attend these meetings but would like to put forth input, you may email it to me in advance and I will present your ideas for you (I may email you back asking questions so that I understand fully what you are going for) at Haldan.Smith@uconn.edu or you can IM me at GloryOfTheStorm on AIM. Your ideas can be as indepth or generalized as desired. Thank you all for your co-operation in our attempts at a smooth planning process and getting it out of the way early so we ALL can concentrate on the symposium.

Thank you for your time,

Haldan Smith
Co-President of UConnPODS

Peace, Love, Live Long and Prosper, Rock On
