Supply list for Weiser


Clothes...
Daytime it gets kinda hot but in the evenings it can get cold.There is a
Laundromat in town which we usually use at least once while we are there. There is a public pool in town also and we usually have at least one water fight in camp so bring a swim suite.
STAGE CLOTHES: Nice Blue Jeans and a white Shirt (not a t shirt) For Monday nights performance AND formal wear for Friday's performance Of the National Anthem. Black pants and White Shirt. We will be presenting ourselves as professionals who understand what an honor it is to perform at Weiser...If you don't have  stage clothes you will not be able to perform with us.
Also PLEASE Bring your RMFC shirt to help publicize our contest!

Must have's
*Your Fiddle (of course) - rosin, shoulder rest and extra strings
*Guitar if you have one and play it (also chord charts)
*A good tape recorder or mini DISC recorder - not a mini voice recorder as these tapes are useless for later use.
*Plenty of blank tapes & Batteries - remember cheap tapes break and sound bad.
You should record at every opportunity, this is mostly why you came. At Jam's in the camp ground especially. If you do not know the person you are recording you should ask permission before punching the record button. This way they know and approve of the recording. this is just common
courtesy. Don't expect to play at jams outside of our camp...you should listen. You will know when you are ready to join.
Recording The Championship div. and your age div.(all rounds) is required.
*Video recorder - If you have one Bring it. You will find video of your division and the Championship div. very helpful in the years to come.
*Flash Light - helpful when heading to the bathroom at night!
*Folding Chairs - if you are flying please send extra chairs with those who have room and are driving. We especially need stools and armless chairs for Jamming.
*Towels and other shower "stuff" - Since you will need to take your stuff with you to the shower's I have found it easier if I put it all in a bag to carry up to the showers. Often shower trips have to happen quickly so it is good to have it all together and ready to grab. There is power in the bathrooms for hair dryers and curling irons.
*Beverages - we have found that pop disappears very quickly at Weiser so we should have a fair plan about how to keep the supply up. We will have large drink containers for lemonade etc...
*A Watch- most of the time we are on a tight schedule so make sure you know what time it is!
*Journal - If you attended last year bring your Weiser Journal. All students must hand in an essay at the end of Weiser... this should give a
thorough account of what you learned and experienced at Weiser, at least one page.

Extra Heavy duty tent stakes - If you are tenting it you will need them.. we do get some wind gusts!
Bug spray,Sunscreen,Snacks,Pillows,sleeping bags extra blankets
