Well if you didn't know, CAMP NANOWRMIO is this June and August. If you don't know what camp nanowrimo is, it's nano, but in the summer! 50k (or whatever your goal is) but in a fun summer setting (in the northern hemisphere).

A lot of people here up north have more time in the summer than in November and having two separate sessions (June and August) makes it easy to either do two nanos OR to pick which time works for you.

Here at [livejournal.com profile] allyear_sprints we're going to honor CAMP NANOWRIMO by attempting to host a couple of sprints a day. (notice I said attempt! Some of our mods are taking vacations etc, but we're going to do our best)

One thing that sets CAMP NANOWRIMO apart from regular nano are cabins. Cabins are small groups of 6-8 nanoers who cheer each other on and work together to get their june camp nanos done. We're going to do that too.

What we're going to do is set up our own cabins (that have nothing to do with the website's), so if you participate in our cabins and WWW.CAMPNANOWRIMO.ORG 's cabin you will be in two.

What our cabins are going to be about is a bit more of a competition. If you choose to sign up for a cabin, you'll earn points for your team. At the end of the month, we'll have an AWARDS CEREMONY where all the cabins are placed and prizes are given out. IT'S GOING TO BE AWESOME AND EPIC AND FUN and you absolutely won't want to miss it.

How can you earn points for your cabin, you ask? Well that's easy!

You earn points the following ways:

1. By attending sprints Every time you attend a sprint, you earn 100 points for your cabin for the day.
2. By commenting here on lj in our DAILY PROGRESS REPORTS you'll earn 500 points a day for your cabin. (checked weekly)
3. During sprints there will be certain games/sprint challenges (at whoever is hosting's discretion) and points will be awarded.
4. By winning your goal (50k or whatever goal you set) you earn 5000 points for your cabin.
5. Random awards will be given for people who cheer each other on, either in sprints OR by commenting here in lj.
6. And more!

So we'll be keeping track all month long and at the end, let you know who wins! How exciting right?!

You might have a few questions at this point:

How many cabins will there be?
That depends on how many people sign up. Ideally we'd like at least 4 cabins of 6 people but we'll alter it if more people sign up!

How many people per cabin?
We're going to have a minimum of 5 people per cabin with a maximum of 10.

How are cabins determined?
Random. Since you're never going to be 'alone' with your cabin we're just going to randomly assign people who sign up to a cabin and go from there! If you're not with your besties that's okay. You and your friends can have a competition and you can kick your friend's rear!

How do I sign up?
This post! simply comment that you'd like to sign up for JUNE'S ALL YEAR CAMP NANOWRIMO and we'll start putting you into a cabin. SIGN UPS CLOSE ON MAY 29TH!

At this point you don't need to post your goal! We'll have a goal post closer to June! Right now all we need is a commitment to join the ranks of a great cabin!

If you have any questions/comments, let me know below! Hope to see you all there!
