Waitlist Anyone?

Posted to Amanda's Angle by Kyle Jost

You know the feeling.  Sweaty palms, heart racing, intense focus on the clock.  You have your hand over the mouse, feverishly adding items to cart and purchasing as quickly as you can in fear it will sell out right in front of your eyes.  Last time I experienced this it was for a premium camping site over spring break on the California coast.  The time before that it was for Sturgill Simpson tickets.  But yesterday, it was for summer camp.

Access Family Schedule

Posted to Tech Tips by Kyle Jost

WARNING: Only days until summer registration opens on May 24th for Truckee residents!!  How time flies!  While the excitement of getting ourselves and kiddos enrolled into Adventure Camp, swim lessons and Art Camp will be a whirlwind of a morning, remembering who needs to be where and what we actually signed up for gets forgotten by the time camp starts.
