Yep, I'm signed up and made the first payment already. I'll made the final half payment in the next week or so.
Once I started doing the math on a hotel (I just didn't want to do the HAB for a week), my wife pointed out that if I could get a decent deal at the Marriott, it'd likely be cheaper (or about the same) than renting a car all week. So, I called their booking folks (not the front desk) and asked for a week-long rate for SC. I was told there is a 'trainer' rate of $99/night. So, I got that. I'd always wanted to do the Marriott at Camp so this should work out well for me.

That's great! And, you'll have pool access all week, too.

Anyone else here wanting to do the week-long adult program this fall?
I'd think that any team I'll be on will be about half alumni and half first-timers. That's how it worked out for 'Hoot Camp' in 2016. I was surprised how many people did a week-long program their first time.

I sort of doubt it. As the week-long camp usually starts early and goes late (especially the post-camp meets at the bar there), I'll bring my swim trunks but I doubt I'll be at the pool much.

Always pack your swim trunks. Ya just never know! I know some of our alumni parties tend to lean away from the bar and more poolside. It depends on the group, and the weather!

This should come as no surprise to many of you here, but I had an 'extra' SC flight suit and I decided to put my Advanced SC patch on it (don't recall where I found that but they're almost impossible to get these days), then added an Army Astronaut patch as well, I'll probably wear it at least once this fall:

I also got a new nametag with army wings and my call sign...
