We are now at 100 applicants for camp spots. This post is the 15 minute warning to the form being closed off.

The applicants will be randomized shortly, and notifications sent to folks who got bunks.

Good luck folks - watch your email inbox over the next few days.

Check spam? If you filled in the google form, You should get an email. I can't say whether it will make you happy or sad, but you'll get one either way.

Nothing in my email, or in the spam. I've gotten all other CM*TO emails, though.

Yep, mine arrived at 726pm EST.  The interwebs must have been overloaded with all the CM*TO emails flying.

OK, stupid question here, might as well ask in public so everyone can see the answer.
My notification says:

 "5. Payment Instructions:
Canadians:  Canadians can pay camp fees using Interac Email money transfer  to campmustachetoronto@gmail.com. "

How does one do this?   When I click on the link all I get get is an opened email.

Elaine, can I be old-fashioned and just mail a cheque?

@RetiredAt63 Elaine deals in USD payments only  To send an e-transfer, you need to log into your online bank account.  There should be an option to "send money" somewhere (where depends on the bank you use)

E-transfers are the preferred method of payments for Canadians (No Canada Post required, and it is instant).  If you desperately need to mail a cheque, please send a PM and I'll send you the mailing address

FYI Folks, getting into the private forum works like this:

Canadians...
1. You pay for your bunk
2. The next morning at 06h30 (+/-) I stumble out of bed and deposit your payment.
3. After everyone's payments are deposited (around 08h00) I send an email asking that all payees be added to the closed forum and Facebook.
4. Elves make magic happen and you appear in the forum & FB group sometime after that.

Not Canadians....
1. You pay for your bunk
2. Sometime after that Elaine deposits your payment and sends me an email that your money arrived.
3. The following morning, after everyone's payments are deposited I send an email asking that all payees be added to the closed forum and Facebook.
4. Elves make magic happen and you appear in the forum & FB group sometime after that.

Based on all this, you should expect to be added to the closed groups about 2-3 days after paying. Right now there are 4 people in the closed groups and 2 waiting to be deposited tomorrow AM. I don't have any information on American payments from @elaine amj yet, but as payments clear her account you will be added.

Payment Methods:

I think we said it in post 1 of this thread (or someplace) but since I've fielded a few questions in a few places I'll say it again...

Canadians: Payment is via email money transfer sent to campmustachetoronto@gmail.com . Unfortunately our relationship with the tooth fairy is not good and we cannot take payment in gold teeth, fairy dust or pixie sticks. We do not want to run around with cheques or get cash from you at the meetup in the Path Network on the 4th Saturday of Julember. If you truly honestly can't figure out an email money transfer we'll walk you through it. PM me and I'll call you.

Americans: Do whatever makes Elaine the happiest. She is precious to us and we want to keep her smiling. See the instructions in your emails.

International: PM me for instructions. Expect it to be some sort of online payment.

We love you all and everyone is equally special, but we hates chasing and tracking payments. It's been pointed out to me that I cause myself undue stress by trying to be too accommodating here. So, please see above. And no, we don't take Superbowl rings as payment either. We can't make change.

ROFL!! I like the way he thinks!! Gotta give my dear, dear husband a big nudge in the ribs (where it hurts the most) and point to our dear Fish as a good role model.

To be fair, he plays a part in helping the money move around too - especially since he's the one with the American bank accounts :)

I accept email money transfer, Paypal, and mailed cheques (cheques must be mailed to my Cdn address though). I'm used to juggling multiple accounts so they're all the same to me lol.

Argh.

I have a different event already scheduled. The only thing I have scheduled after June, and it also falls on the same weekend. And I booked plane tickets to Germany for it yesterday.

And then five minutes ago I sent my payment for CM*TO, went to add it to my Google calendar, and only then realized the conflict. *forehead slap*

Sad I'll miss everyone this year. :(

I'm sure it'll be a blast, as always. Wish I could join you.

FOR NOW.  You have seven months to get another 10% of the population.

@arebelspy - umm, how are we going to convince some unsuspecting camper, over lunch, that they can FIRE this year?  Can you Skype in?

Seriously, it won’t be the same without you.  :(

Today's updates are now done (I slept in - it's the weekend). If you paid last night or yesterday, watch for invites to the private forum and FB pages.

So far we have 15% of our bunks bought and paid for!

Was I supposed to send in additional $$ for the extra nights and the t-shirt?

Nope.

We are simplifying the everything this year. When we lock down the list in the summer (I think it is in July, but I'm too lazy to look up the date) we'll send out a second email asking folks to reserve extra nights, shirts, special diets, etc.

In previous years whenever someone resold a ticket we had to update all that data in our tables and it was painful. It also meant a lot of last minute reshuffling. By waiting for the add-ons we simplify the task of data compilation and we avoid a load of 'double-handling' with booking data. All of this stuff was always paid for at the gate anyhow, so there is no need to have the info this early. Locking things down 6 weeks before camp means that we have enough time to order shirts and we cut down on waste.

A second google survey will be sent out to collect the data from ticket holders when the time is right - because of this, it is vitally important that anyone who buys/sells a resale ticket reaches back to us to let us know. Otherwise we won't have the email to direct the survey to.

I can't remember which member of the org committee came up with this scheme, but I am thankful it was suggested as a way to streamline everything. I am not smart enough to have thought of it myself.

I just sent my payment to @elaine amj via Zelle (using the e-mail address in the e-mail).  Woo hoo!!
Woot! Got it!!!

Wow--that was fast!

Was I supposed to send in additional $$ for the extra nights and the t-shirt?

Nope.

We are simplifying the everything this year. When we lock down the list in the summer (I think it is in July, but I'm too lazy to look up the date) we'll send out a second email asking folks to reserve extra nights, shirts, special diets, etc.

In previous years whenever someone resold a ticket we had to update all that data in our tables and it was painful. It also meant a lot of last minute reshuffling. By waiting for the add-ons we simplify the task of data compilation and we avoid a load of 'double-handling' with booking data. All of this stuff was always paid for at the gate anyhow, so there is no need to have the info this early. Locking things down 6 weeks before camp means that we have enough time to order shirts and we cut down on waste.

A second google survey will be sent out to collect the data from ticket holders when the time is right - because of this, it is vitally important that anyone who buys/sells a resale ticket reaches back to us to let us know. Otherwise we won't have the email to direct the survey to.

I can't remember which member of the org committee came up with this scheme, but I am thankful it was suggested as a way to streamline everything. I am not smart enough to have thought of it myself.

OK--sounds good.  Thanks for that info.

LEADERSHIP,

A quick heads up; I don't have access to the CM*OT child board. I was waiting patiently per @Le Poisson guidance, but just learned that @butt_munch has access. I cannot endure Snow having something I do not have. May I pretty please have access? And apologies for whatever I messed up during registration. Probably I misspelled my own user name. Such things happen. Some times the land of Thut slides into the sea. And so it goes.

V/R,

Your enthusiasm is unbounded.

I assure you that Cdr DinglePoP has said and done nothing to besmirch your reputation or standing among the troops within the safe confines of the sooper-secret association of CM*TO attendees. I await notice from our American Payment system of your deposit clearing the chequing account, at which time I shall set the door ajar just enough to allow your USCG Approved-sized body through.

Until then, Admiral ButtMunch shall continue to attend without your guidance.

Best Regards,
Me.
