One of the features in my coverage of the ‘StrangeCreek Campout’ of this past weekend that will be up on this site; is this recreation of a small pamphlet all Creek goers recieved upon arrival. Within its small black and white pages were statements, rules, and most importantly rosters of all the bands playing at the event’s three stages.
I did my best to replicate the flavor of the event that is in those pages, even photopgraphing the advertisments for other upcoming events. Also, in the rosters I provided a link to the information page of each band’s facebook, myspace, or offical website to give readers more information on the bands themselves. Excuse any spelling or grammatical mistakes in the texts below, chances are that is how they appeared in the actual pamphlets. Having invested a real lot of work into this, I hope you will enjoy this feature. The photographs and a short article on the event will be posted in the next few days.

Battle of the Bands!
We hear from so many talented musicans who want to be part of the Wormtown scene. Onme of the hardest parts of organizing these events is ‘breaking in’ new talent while maintaining our great relationship with bands we’ve watched grow over the years. So we host our ‘battles’ (very friendly affairs, really) both to check out new bands and to give some of them an oppurtunity to work thier way into a festival set. The next battles will take place in August. But you can sign up starting in June, by e-mailing Derek@wormtown.com– include your band name and a link or links to check out your tunes. We’ll have online polls on www.wormtown.com and Facebook to narrow the field and see who rises to the top. The shows are always free for fans!
Hop on the Wormboard! the friendly interactive community online at www.wormtown.com is a great place for keeping in touch with wormtown friends, swaping notes about upcoming happenings, making each other laugh, and asking questions about wormtown events throughout the year.
Facebookin’– Join us as a friend of Wormtown Trading Co. (spelled like that), another way to keep in touch about upcoming wormtown events and be the first to know about news, updates, and developments.
As always www.wormtown.com will have the latest news on things like the upcoming Wormtown Festival, Camp Creek, this Summer’s ‘Battle of the Bands’, and other wormtown happenings in the Wormtown world! There’s also a place to join the mailing list for regular updates!

We are proud that our gatherings have grown more family friendly than ever. We think of our community as extended family, and our brothers and sisters now raising families can still enjoy the festivals as our wonderful family camping staff help provide a safe and entertaining haven for them and thier children.
We ask that you keep a few things in mind. Firstly, stay involved with and aware of your family members. Please don’t treat family camping as a babysitting service; guardians should always be mindful of thier responsibilities. If our staff thinks there is a problem, they will be proactive. Please never leave young children unattended if they are old enough to roam check in with them often and keep them close after dark. If a child is missing, don’t hesitate to contact staff for immediate assistance. Safety is always the highest priority.
If you did not come with children , please be respectful of families around you, and mindful of the safety of youngsters. Family camping is not the party spot; please tone it down in that area at night. The are here to help, but “it takes a village” as the saying goes, and the safety and comfort of all is our highest and constant concern. In other words, “play smart” so everyone goes home happy.
