The Uncle Sammy Organization cordially invites its fans and good friends to its first official Boot Camp at Full Moon Alternative Mountain Resort in Oliverea, New York (about 30 minutes West of Woodstock). Boot Camp will be an intimate weekend experience (only 120 people!) with the band in a very special setting, featuring accommodations and camping, great food, good vibes and two nights of improvisational explorations with Uncle Sammy. This two-night event will take place on Friday, July 12 and Saturday, July 13, 2002.

Full Moon is a year-round alternative resort, conference/workshop center, and performance venue located in the heart of the "Forever Wild" Catskill Mountain Forest Preserve in upstate New York. Dedicated to the celebration of nature, music and the arts, this one hundred-acre wonderland of mountains, fields and streams is a world of its own. The facility features hotel rooms in comfortable lodges, a campground with restrooms and showers, a performance hall with a full bar, a huge swimming pool and an excellent restaurant/café.

For campers, there will be a special "Camp and Show" package for $50, which includes two nights of camping and two nights of Uncle Sammy. There are a few rules for campers: Full Moon asks that there are no kegs or beer balls and no excessive late night noise at campsites; fires are allowed only in designated fire-pits; hibachis and grills are OK. Campsites are assigned, and all campers must individually check-in at the front desk on arrival.

Campers will be allowed to bring their own rations, but be aware that Full Moon will serve buffet breakfasts on Saturday and Sunday and a special Uncle Sammy Family BBQ on Saturday evening, all at reasonable prices. All meals offer vegetarian options. Full Moon's café menu has sandwiches available throughout the weekend. Also, beer and wine are available at a service bar at the main inn during daytime hours, and there is a full bar in the Performance Space during the shows.

For those who want to spend the weekend in luxury, there are about a dozen hotel rooms still available. The rooms range from $70 to $95 per night with a two-night minimum stay. Admission to the shows for people in hotel rooms is $25 for both nights combined.

Please note that there are no ATMs or camping items for sale on premises, so be good scouts and be prepared!

Whether you are interested in a hotel room or camping, you must call for reservations! When you call, let Full Moon know that you will be attending the Uncle Sammy shows. You will be asked what accommodations you want (camping or hotel) and what meals you would like, if any. We recommend that you call soon, because both rooms and campsites are limited in number and might sell out. Whatever you do, don't show up without a reservation!

For reservations and more information call 845.254.5117; for those technologically enhanced cadets, check out the website http://www.fullmoonresort.com for directions and pictures of Full Moon. For questions, concerns and suggestions please email info@fullmooncentral.com or Colonel Matt Aronowitz .

See you on the moon!
