Other hosting options

Here is a site to some hostels in honolulu, that is like right in town.  Some of the places we would go are around town, the prices look good.

Sad because you don't get to run through the jungles, hunting, killing, cooking and eating your lunch [or supper?]
Still can, it just won't be wild boar... http://www.americanparkour.com/component/option,com_smf/Itemid,159/topic,20046.0/

I think my version is more fun.  Super-predator/ predator/ prey ;D Try to catch your lunch, while something out there tries to kill you.

I honestly have one major goal in life, and I will do whatever I can to accomplish it.

It's what he was describing.
It's a game we play each year at a summer camp where i teach.

It's ridiculously fun, and would be great for movement training.

I actually took a hunter safety course this past winter, but I dunno if I am man enough to take on a wild boar with only a knife. Those things can fillet you before you realize it. 

Either date option works for me, although depending on how far people are traveling, flying back on christmas eve could turn into almost as much of an adventure as the jam its self. If I can land a job I'm in for sure, otherwise I might have to rationalize dipping into my savings account for this one.

Regarding bringing Bows, as long as it declared and in your checked luggage you shouldn't get any hassle. You might even be able to  bring the bow its self in your carry-on so long as it fits the dimension restraints, but the broadheads for sure would need to be checked.  Worst comes  to worst UPS it to Ozzi or someone from HIPK.

Well now ;).. If that's the case might I suggest moving it one week earlier? like Jan 15-18th? That falls on Martin Luthor King Jr. Day, which many schools and colleges are closed for. Unless there's some reason I'm not aware of, in which case the current date is far enough in advance to allow for propper planning.

Thoughts on that anyone?

@ Elet, what kind of predator and pray game you play? We created one here at HIpk.

@ Elet, what kind of predator and pray game you play? We created one here at HIpk.
We play one designed to teach the kids the food chain and energy ladders in the ecosystem, but it would be very easy to tweak to point it more towards motion artists.

We have 3 main catagories; Herbivore, Omnivores, and carnivores.
Herbivores must collect food and water tokens from a hiding place in the playing area.
Omnivores must collect water from its hiding spot, and food as well, or they can catch an herbivore and steal their food tokens.
Carnivores need to catch the other two to steal their tokens.

We also throw out some kids as disease, and natural disasters, they kill anybody.

Then we have the hunter, which isnt something i would use with a group smaller than 50.
he simply has to see you, call your name, and your dead. But he can only kill every 30 seconds.
You gotta be able to hide quick...

Whoa! Current date? Did I miss the post about it? Probably... Im pretty absent minded about it. Whats the current planned date? I gotta know once its set in stone. I really wanna come out to this one, and itll be my first national jam, but I have know far in advance to get off of work.

Elet, That sounds like absolute fun haha. Maybe we can get enough people before or after the jam that wanna play around!

EDIT**

Since I havent done this yet, I figured I better.

 Depending on when the jam is, I might be staying 2 weeks.
 Being hosted would be awesome, but if there is not enough room then I can bring a little one man tent.

For these dates I can host 4 people max (maybe more if you're okay camping in my backyard), email me at rfuruya@hawaii.edu if you wanna stay with me.  First come first served... Only if you're 100% sure that you're coming though.  I'll see if I can cover food costs for the people staying with me since you're paying so much to come here anyway.

OMG OMG OMG OMG I have those days off from school since it's the semester break!!!! So that solves the time factor for me!  :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* :-* Ozzi!

Now I have to just check the $ factor and discuss with my Fairy Godmother.
