One of the highlights of Winter Camp XVII was the first Hobby Demo.

Conditions at Winter Camp XVII proved to be conducive to a successful encampment. The perpetually cold weather allowed for the completion of most planned activities, both indoors and outdoors. New events included a hobby demo, a game of Alermeraine, and an alien design contest. The Quest, repeated from 1992, went to outer space. The hobby project included the demonstration of the previous selections and new selections for 1994.

Of significance in the realm of Winter Camp attendance was the absence of pioneer Michael Osvath. Now only three of the 113 who have ever attended Winter Camp, maintain unblemished records.

Curiously, the meal program deviated from the plan and included much less baking than traditional. When a menu was not planned for the international smorgasbord (presumably for financial reasons), a second pizza meal was substituted without complaint. New meal themes included the civil war lunch and Troi meal. The Troi meal featured a specially designed cake of a feminine shape patterned after an episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Publishing presses regained some fertility as Winter Camp XVII was graced with the first feature novel for Winter Camp. Mark Bollman-->'s Channel 120 provided 50,000 words of stimulating reading for the Arrowmen present. The Winter Camp News continued its recent trend of precamp and postcamp editions. Jeffrey Rand defined 326 more words in Big Bro's Word Book.

Much has happened in the days following Winter Camp XVII, but it is only prologue for future Winter Camps leading to the end of time.
