Iconoclast: Camping facilities, BYOB H2O
Thursday 9:45 p.m.
Gene Ellis reporting for The Iconoclast

Due to the large numbers of people expected to descend on Camp Casey this weekend, the second camp has been closed to tents. The front area must be cleared to accommodate the larger crowds. There might be a limited number of spaces in the ditch at Camp I, but overflow campers must find area camping facilities in Crawford, Waco, and other Central Texas campgrounds. A list of area campgrounds will hopefully be compiled. Bob Sutter at the Crawford camping area can only accommodate 10-12 campers.

According to Ann Wright, camp coordinator, they are thrilled with the number of people wanting to come, but there just isn't all that much room. "We couldn't have accommodated any of this if we hadn't been loaned this additional land for Camp Casey II. This has been a godsend."

Wright also strongly suggested that visitors to the camps this weekend bring their own spray misters, perhaps a kerchief to be soaked in water and tied around the neck, a six-pack of water for each person, anything to help stave off problems caused by intense heat. Due to the crush of people expected, water supplies may run short if more donations do not come in. So BYO.
