- Why is UCC paying for UniSFA's camp?
- Incredibly rare for camps to make profit
- Camp isn't targeting UCCans as there is no LAN
- UCC camps started going downhill because they are overregulated
- Examples given:
- Regulations on alcohol
- Excessive number of student leaders/etc in charge
- Space might have enough room for a LAN
- Recommends committee checks out Ern Haliday in person

- UniSFA has an existing booking for the end of the year
- Understanding that the offer was made in goodwill
- Camp can make money
- Camp can offer social connection for people who have missed out
- There is a cross-over in the member base
- Joint camp is not specifically one way or another
- Good opportunity to experiment
- UniSFA and Unigames have run successful camps
- Itinerary of events has been drafted

- There was never going to be a 2020 camp
- Partly based on pandemic
- Also due to losses in previous years
- Would like to see a 2021 UCC camp that is our own
- Does not have to be in exclusion of this joint camp
- Alcohol does have a scheduled time, as with food

- Campmittee to follow up on whether there is actually room to fit a few compys at camp for LAN
- Advertising to happen soon also
- We can make it work!
- Is a good opportunity for people who have been starved of events and social time

  • [MPT] had a chat with Samson
