MAGSTOCK CAMPFEST 3
SUBSONIC SURF MACHINE IN THE YEAR 2013
This is the 2013 magstock site. Some details on this page are subject to change.Welcome to the painfully simple MAGstock CampFest site. It's supposed to look bad.
We're sticking with the simple look so deal with it.
Right now, the pertinent deets only:
REG for MAGStock 3 Is down until event. If you registered after 9:00 PM on 7/22/2013, you will have to re-reg at door.
The original map is not valid. Very few things will be in similar locations.
A bunch of nerds from MAGFest get transplanted to a campground for rocking out, camping, grilling, and forced socializing. Think "family reunion".
Clint, Charles, everyone stupid enough to work for us, and everyone stupid enough to attend. Read: Existing MAGFest staffers and attendees and their friends. NOT people that cannot go to MAGFest if they attend this.
July 26-28, 2013.
Small Country Campground in lovely historic rustic something Louisa, Virginia. (read: your cell phone may not work well VA)
Address: 4400 Byrd Mill Rd. Louisa, VA 23093
Directions: Take Interstate 64 exit 143. Follow signs for "Small Country Campground" and/or "CAMPING" (north from the exit). Be a good nerd and use Google Maps (mapquest sux). Then turn right onto "Unnamed Road" into the campground. The generic highway signs for "Camping" are easy to see.
Help us by helping yourself: If you want to use mass transit to get there, it's a campground in the middle of nowhere. You're going to need to find a way to get to Richmond or Charlottesville and then find some folks to carpool with or something.
Do not reserve a spot at the campground. Paying us gets you in and a camping spot.
Typically there is so much to do at MAGFest that MAGnerds don't have time to just sit around and chill out with their friends and drink (well, except drink). We need an excuse to do absolutely nothing for an entire weekend other than rock out and throw people in a lake and charge you for this awesome opportunity.
SERIOUSLY? TAKE MY MONEY! HOW MUCH?
As much as you want to give us.
Actually, we just want $40 until July 1, after that/at the gate the price will go up (this thing's barely planned as is, we need to get that fixed by getting people prereged). This includes entry for one person and your ability to sleep at the campsite Friday and Saturday nights.
We will be equipped to take paypal in advance or cash and (probably) credit at the gate.
Is there any way for me to get in for free?
Even the people in charge are paying the registration fee. If you bust your ass reasonably for us or help us out of a tough spot or something we'll help reimburse that but you should be prepared to at least pay in advance even if you're going to get it back.
OK WHEN WILL PREREGISTER OPEN I BEEN POSTIN BOUT IT ON FACEBOOK FOREVER AN EVER N U WONT ANSER MEEEEEEEE:
Prereg is now open!
What's this "it’s dangerous to go alone"
Ok, first of all we never said that, you're thinking of Zelda.
Second of all, going as a group is highly recommended. This is real camping so you're going to end up in a tent with other people in it, and if you don't have a tent, you'll need to know or befriend someone with one. Stay with someone you know and trust.
You forgot the "Take this!" part.
Nuh uh! The item list is here
How are you placing tents?
We have 20 slots to start off with, pick one with your friends and we'll take it from there.
Seriously, we have lots of space, pick a spot and check with us before you set up. Don't be a douche to your neighbors. People will be allowed to set up next to you so choose wisely.
SHARE THE SPACE AND SHARE THE POWER.
I want to make gobs of money and sell things to unsuspecting campers!
Good news! We have no idea how we're going to handle this!
If you've just got a few things you want to sell out of your car, cool. If you want to pitch a canopy (that's what she said) and do it you need to talk to us first.
I have a band and I want to play! How can I do this?
First, pretty much nothing about this show is going to be pro or even close to ideal. We hope to have some gas money for everyone that plays and everyone is going to have to share gear. It's a bunch of nerds rocking out at a campground and we're doing it on the cheap.
Still interested? First, we want your band to be nerdy somehow. The "only game music or chiptunes" rule from MAGFest won't apply to MAGstock. We're going to do 30-45 minute slots or something like that. Music will probably go from like 11am until 11pm (which is when quiet hours begin).
Quiet hours? <nick>What is this?</nick>
Don't worry, we can still talk and have smaller parties during quiet hours, it just can't be as noisy and there are going to be other campers in the campground so we don't want to rock this rad boat.
How are we going to play games at a campground? Is there going to be any power?
The campground has more power than the Hilton did. No, seriously.
You will need to get creative so your things do not get wet. Or just bring portables and don't whine, please don't whine.
Are there showers? Running water?
Most definitely yes, and if you don't take a shower we are throwing you in the lake.
There's a lake?
Yes, there most certainly is a lake.
Do I have to poo in the woods?
Unless you think "morning wood" means being constipated in the morning, yes there's a toilet, that's what "running water" means.
Will the running water be hot?
We're going to make it so hot for you.
How do I get on the internet when I'm at a campground?
It's slow, but it's there. You may want to use cell phone internet, but even that's a little iffey. You should be able to at least check your email and facebook!
read: If you're playing wow at the campground you will be ejected with no refund.
Sup dog, we herd u liek pets so we put a dog in ur dog so you can pet while you pet.
Pets are allowed and there is no charge. They must be kept on a leash at all times. The site has aggessive breed restrictions so please call them first. There's a no barking and biting policy and a maximum of 3 pets allowed per campsite. Since we're all going to be crammed together you may want to consider leaving your pet in the care of someone at home.
Can I bring my kids?
Kids are allowed and there is no charge. They must be kept on a leash at all times. The site has aggessive breed restrictions so please call them first. There's a no crying/whining and biting policy and a maximum of 3 kids allowed per campsite. Since we're all going to be crammed together you may want to consider leaving your kid in the care of someone at home.
My kids aren't that young.
Then they're going to have to pay like everyone else, and we expect them to behave like everyone else.
Where am I going to get food?
Will, our head cook last year will be resuming his position and will (for a nominal $25 fee) be willing to cook you three-ish meals Friday, Three meals Saturday and two-ish meals Sunday. That's eight meals for $25. That's like $3.25 per meal. You would be insane not to take him up on this offer. P.S. His menu is over here: click here.
Getting food from Will doesn't entitle you to food from everyone who's cooking, just Will. Your neighbors aren't Will. Unless he is, in which case the food you paid for is at the pavilion anyways.
If you don't like this idea, Louisa is nearby and has some food places and you should certainly bring snacks and drinks for yourself and friends!
Fire! FIRE!@#!!1 haeeheaehahahaea!
Calm down Beavis. Don't set any grass or trees on fire. Or your TP. Keep the campfires in the fire rings.If your site does not have one and you want to build a fire, please build a sufficent fire ring. There will be people there able to lend a hand, we have a great community.
Can I drink?
The campground operators understand that you want to have a good time, and so do we. But if you yarf on the moon bounce we are going to crucify you.
They're also very good friends with the authorities. Don't piss them off.
Also, new this year: We can no longer allow alcohol on the beach, in the water, on the pier or on the strange floating waterslide thing. Sorry.
WHAT IS THIS MOON BOUNCE YOU SPEAK OF
They've got a moon bounce buried in the sand and it rules. The floating thing in the lake, is still there.
ARE YOU SERIOUS
YES WE ARE
This sounds really boss but I have another question / think you guys are full of it / just wet my pants / need to go eat lunch / my mom needs to make a phone call now.
