With the first decade set of Winter Camps complete and the event now firmly established on the holiday calendar, event veterans sought to ensure its continuation by forming the Winter Camp Future Society. The groundwork was laid in 1986 and the first member was accepted a year later.
A festive atmosphere abounded, as Winter Camp X served as the celebration for the first decade set of Winter Camps. Many fine traditions were embraced from years past, including an organization similar to Winter Camp IX. The Winter Camp Newspaper began its second year of publication.
The chief celebration involved a Winter Camp Anniversary Banquet where several past participants made an appearance to reminisce about times past. The hearty meal, quite expectedly, included large portions and variety. The finest Winter Camp china was used to add a touch of elegance.
Several new meal themes helped to add culinary variety to the program. New meals included the following: Mexican Meal, Anniversary Dinner, Theater Snack, Continental Breakfast, and Random Meal. The Synchronized Dinner became the Synchronized Lunch, where the Donohue brothers were particularly amusing in their coordinated antics. The entire menu provided 19,676 kilocalories and 33.2 lbs. worth of food for each Arrowman.
Many exciting activities were tried as Winter Camp firsts, including Frisbee golf, Winter Camp Adventure Game, wacky decathlon, ultimate Frisbee, forest bowling, and a soccer obstacle course.
Several participants with an eye towards the future, formed the Winter Camp Future Society. Chief among their projects was to formulate a list of predictions for Winter Camps 20, 50, and 100. The society agreed to bring a scale to Winter Camp XX in order to weigh Mike Osvath.
As Winter Camp concluded, the Jiffy Clock began its countdown of 33,153.838 jiffies until Winter Camp XI.
