Registration procedure: Because of budget cuts and staff retirements the registration procedure has not been finalized. The camp office will be closed during the winter, so reservations of sites will have to take place at a yet undetermined date. Since we have the entire camping area reserved, the date for site selection is not a problem. It just might be later than in previous years. We will be accepting registrations for the Annual Gathering in January 2012. A list of registered TCT members will be sent to those that will be responsible for site reservations. Registration material will be available in the Winter Newsletter and at www.tincantourists.com after the Winter newsletter is distributed. You will be notified as to when ite reservations can be made. Site reservations will probably begin after the Camp Office officially opens for the year. This may be at the beginning of April.

Contact person: Forrest Bone at tincantourists@gmail.com or (941) 302-2415.
