The camper slots are filling up! If you are thinking that you will want to come to Camp Run A Muck in late June you will need to get your name on the list for hopefuls. Once all 25 slots are filled (with deposit) no more names will be excepted.

This is more of a camp where you can come and learn what is being demonstrated and then have a chance to practice it, talk with vendors, teachers and hang out with fellow glass workers. If this was a more structured "camp" the costs would need to be much higher. Since this is the first year of CRAM IT, it will be a jumping off point for more structure the following years. I can promise that you will go home with more knowledge then you came with, new friends and a great time hanging out camp style right here in Bend Oregon on this fine little mini ranch.

We were going to rent a big event tent for this but decided to build a pole structure this early spring that will be a whole barn/shop for next year. This year will be a slight more primitive then next year but still fun and educational. If you want to camp right here on the mini ranch there is NO additional costs.

Just wanted to clarify some of this while I am waiting for some of the last teacher/vendor confirmations. Be sure to get your name on the list before it's to late!

OOh, how did I miss this for so long? Add me to the list, do I need to do anything else at this time? I'd like to camp & may be bringing along a husband.. he would be playing outside, not with glass, during the day.

Thanks for posting Lori! Maybe asking about who would like to teach in the family room, patio or bathroom too?

Hi Ruth ... Just checking in to see if you've got a demo/class schedule ironed out yet. Sounds like you might still be trying to get firm comittments from teachers and demonstrators. How about suppliers...is there going to be anybody from Bullseye there? Anywho ... just anxious for more info.

Still working on the details Bonnie. Wish I had more to tell you but there is lots of interest over this coming to the email box everyday. Oh, and I got some other great news too!

I can't tell you yet.... but I know you guys will like it! Great things are happening for CRAM IT and people are coming forward in support and high interest. Those that do come to camp will be right at the top of happy pile!

So many great things happened this week with Monday and Tuesday being right at the top of my needed pile. I had a great time with Kimberly and the private class was a blast! When the beads come in the mail I will post a new thread with all the details. Then I will get the beads and glass packed for the peeps that won the Christmas decorating contest I had.

Great suggestions Mona! Sadly, this will need to be next year. I will continue to brain storm with the people that are helping with this and plan for a bigger event next year. We are drawing up plans to start the buildings here in the next few weeks. A small studio and a good size barn type building that will be set up for lots of possibilities.

I am excited with all the plans we are making to be able to have a great CRAM IT event for everyone. I am sad about the need to cancel this first annual Camp Run A Muck. (yes... traditional ways spell it "muk", but you all know I am anything but traditional and I am not talking about that traditional kind of muck anyway! ) We had a lot of interest in being campers and teachers with promises for next years event. I was hoping to be able to pull this off... but everything is pointing to next year rather then this. I can't fight the universe, so will follow it instead and go where it is guiding me. Please keep this event in mind for June 2010. June is the best time to come to the desert as everything is alive, beautiful and not hot at that point yet normally.

We have been busily laying out the grounds for the camping area and where the buildings will go. This will be easier for next year too so everyone can get the biggest bang for their bead camp buck. Food, top shelf bead makers teaching and doing demos, suppliers, vendors with a wide array of glass related goodies, bead and glass sellers, open torch times, night out at McMinnamins pre-camp hangout party and much more. It will be a blast but just not this year.
People have emailed left and right because they want to attend. When I get all the buildings I want to build done this year, there will be room for 50 "campers" rather then just 20.

All you guys deserve the best and I want to try to give that to you, even if in a small way. I have so much to give back to the lampwork community for the encouragement and sharing that has come my way. I can honestly say that lampworking and so many great hearts out there have saved my life. So, I got to get cracking and give something back. All of you are my top priority for the new tool line too. I am getting ready to have this whole new line made by a new company. I am excited about this new big change and even more excited that this tool maker understands molten glass artists.
OK, that is all I am going to say about the new tool line for now.

If you want to chat, ask questions or any other camp run a muck type comments, please feel free to post or email me. My in box for PM is nearly full and I will not be clearing it. The best way to reach me is by email.

Actually next year will work better for me too. With everything we're doing to get my Mom moved up to Oregon this spring I haven't had much torch time or much time for anything else. I would imagine that getting demos and instructors lined up for this summer could be a problem because they're usually booked for several months in advance, and all the work you're planning on doing to your place to get ready...this'll give you a little breathing room. I'll be looking forward to June 2010 !

Thanks for everything Teague! We will have a blast next year... but even better because we will have actual buildings rather then tents.

Sounds good to me! Call me sometime in the afternoon... OK? I have been swamped trying to get all the planning and everything connected to the buildings I am hoping for to be done this early year. I so want to have a nice place to this annual event at. No point in starting it off in tents if we don't have to.
