Everyone will have a great time at Camp Gaw.
If you don't mind a little more traveling, Camelback is a slightly better place.
Get on their websites and compare: price, timing of shifts, relax areas, travel there time.
Ok thanks so much. Appreciate!
If you are trying to get my attention/assistance and I'm not responding, please feel free to PM me. :)

When I ask someone their Country of birth and they mispronounce it am I supposed to correct them?

Maybe ask them why they pronounce it that way.  ;)
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

Usually when I see an abbreviation I pronounce it (in my head), in short form. For example FR would be read ef-are. Therefore grammatically it makes sense to write an FR over a FR (read: a financial review). But this one just doesn't seem right, because in my head I read it as hat tip.


an HT

Anyone have an opinion on this?

This is actually grammatically correct. If it is an abbreviation that is usually pronounced or read as the abbreviation itself, then you use 'a' or 'an' based on how the abbreviation sounds, not what the actual letter is. So for FR, you would indeed use 'an' FR.
