Sukkot Of The Rockies FAQs
(frequently asked questions)
IS PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED, OR CAN I JUST SHOW UP?
Event Pre-Registration is 100% required and must be pre-paid online by September 23, 2019 to be assured a place. Because of the logistics that would be required, and also for the sake of security, we will not permit any “walk-up” on-site registrations. Please plan ahead and pre-register ASAP. Thanks!
WHAT DOES MY REGISTRATION FEE COVER?
Your registration fee for Sukkot of the Rockies 2019 includes access to: your camping space (multiple tents, RV, both); all teachings, workshops, and volunteer-led on-site activities; on-site restrooms and non-pay showers, online recordings of all teachings (for Full Event passholders], unlimited fellowship with other like-minded believers from all over the southwest and beyond, and of course the ever-popular "much much more"!
HOW DO I APPLY FOR FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE? HOW DO I DONATE TO THE BENEVOLENCE FUND?
We get it, you don’t have all the funds you need to attend Sukkot of the Rockies, but you feel very strongly that you should be here with us. We will be providing levels of financial aid on a case by case basis, so please contact us at: if you are in need of financial assistance, and we’ll see what we are able to do.
If you are able to give so that others may receive aid to attend the Feast, please go to our Benevolence Fund donation page.
ARE THERE OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES FOR ADDITIONAL COST?
Yes, tons! We kept the registration fee as low as possible while including lots to do, and there are also day trips you can take to no- and low-cost locations. For those who would like to upgrade their Sukkot experience, there are both on-site activities provided by PPIR, as well off-site group day trips planned that have some fees associated with them. We are still working out what these extra activities will be, including negotiating group rates when we can, and you will be provided with your options as soon as we’ve organized them.
WILL FOOD BE PROVIDED?
No, food is on you, and we encourage you to make plans to get together with different people each evening and share your meals. There are large stores within 20 minutes of PPIR for stocking up over the course of the week, and ice and basic convenience-store type items will be sold on site. [Recently changed policy:] You may bring your own alcohol with you onto the premises to be consumed and shared; no alcohol will be sold on premises by PPIR or Sukkot of the Rockies, and no attendee may sell alcohol on premises.
HOW CAN I BECOME A RECOGNIZED TEACHER AT THIS EVENT?
If you want to teach at Sukkot of the Rockies, that's awesome! To apply to become a recognized and endorsed teacher at the event you need to do the following: (1) Commit to be part of our Sukkot community for at least a week (whichever dates you believe is Sukkot), (2) take this sage advice from James 3:1: “Not many of you should become teachers, my brothers, for you know that we who teach will be judged with greater strictness.”, (3) get clear on what it is you wish to teach and put a short summary of it in writing (explain the core of your message as briefly as possible), and include how much time you believe you need to present it, and (4) send an email with the dates you will be at the event and your short summary to Chaim Goldman at:
ChaimG@RepairingTheBreach.global Chaim will review it and follow up with you to discuss what happens next.
HOW CAN I BECOME A RECOGNIZED MUSICIAN AT THIS EVENT?
Bring your instruments and just play and sing where the opportunity presents itself. If you wish to play/perform during any of our official meeting/activity sessions, then please write an email to Mike Schoening at: MikeSchoening@me.com and let him know your talents and how you’d like to serve with them, and he will let you know what to do next.
HOW CAN I LEAD OR ASSIST WITH A CLASS OR ACTIVITY AT THIS EVENT?
Thanks for asking; we really appreciate you wanting to serve! Please contact Vicki Morgan at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know the way(s) you would like to serve.
WHAT'S THE POLICY ON "STRONG DRINK"? [Recently changed policy]
Deuteronomy 14:25: “Spend the money for whatever you desire—oxen or sheep or wine or strong drink, whatever your appetite craves. And you shall eat there before the YHVH your Elohim and rejoice, you and your household.”
Ephesians 5:15-20: "Pay careful attention, then, to how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Master’s will is. Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to reckless indiscretion. Instead, be filled with the Spirit."
That’s our Scripturally -based policy: Alcohol yes, drunkenness no! And actually, we’ve worked out a deal with PPIR for them to buy various forms of “strong drink” to sell to Feast-goers at basically cost. We’re saving the hassle and buying on site. It’s like we thought of everything! [Recently changed policy:] You may bring your own alcohol with you onto the premises to be consumed and shared; no alcohol will be sold on premises by PPIR or Sukkot of the Rockies, and no attendee may sell alcohol on premises.
CAN WE HAVE CAMPFIRES?
Of course camping in Colorado is not complete without campfires! As long as they are well-contained in a firepit or ring that is MADE OF METAL and keeps the fire OFF THE GROUND, and proper caution and supervision is implemented, then you may have a fire at your campsite. We will also have a large communal one in center of the camp. Firewood will be available for purchase on site.
WHAT'S THE PET POLICY?
Unfortunately, we have needed to institute a "no pet" policy due to insurance restrictions and safety concerns. There are places to board pets not too far away, please contact us if you need help finding them. If you have a legally registered "Service Dog", then of course they are permitted; but not a "therapy" or "comfort" pet. If you are bringing a Service Animal, then please let us know ahead of time. We are sorry for the inconvenience (many of us are pet owners, so we understand).
WILL THERE BE ELECTRICAL HOOK-UPS?
Yes! There is an option to add electrical service for RVs, as well as for tenters with medical needs. 110v in both Standard (20 amp) and RV (50 amp) is available for an additional fee. Cost is for hookup and use of electrical regardless of the number of days used. Important: Standard 110-115 volt devices can be safely plugged into 20 amp service; and if you require 110v 30 amp, you must bring a 50 amp to 30 amp adapter. If you will be using this option, please make sure to add it when you are purchasing your passes.
WILL THERE BE SECURITY?
Absolutely! We understand the importance of a secure camp. That’s a big part of why we chose this location. The entire race track is surrounded by fencing, and there is only one entrance/exit. PPIR has its own security, and we will be providing our own, as well as deputizing everyone to be alert as a watchman or woman. If you would like to serve in the security detail, please contact Andy Gasper at 719-964-1882.
WILL I BE EXPECTED TO VOLUNTEER?
Yes, just as Y’shua/Jesus came to serve, not to be served, we as His Kingdom of Priests follow His example and foster an environment of serving others. If all serve, then all are served, and the needs of the Body are met by members of the Body. Service comes in many forms, both inside and outside of your specific giftings. As you can imagine, for a campout of this size, there are all sorts of ways one can serve. Restrooms will need to be cleaned. Tables and chairs will need to be wiped down. People will need help setting up tents, etc. If you have children, you could serve in childcare. If you have cooking experience, you can help organize communal meals. If you have law enforcement experience, you can help with security. The opportunities are endless! When you register, be sure to indicate which areas you are interested in serving at the camp. A team leader will be in contact with you to let know how you can help.
IS THIS EVENT ASSOCIATED WITH A SPECIFIC MINISTRY OR DENOMINATION?
If you're wondering, "Who's behind this event?", we want to let you know that Sukkot of the Rockies is NOT associated with any denomination, ministry, or specific congregation. It’s truly a grassroots project birthed from the heart of our Father and executed with love by everyone who felt the call AND stepped forward to help make it happen. It's being spearheaded by those in the Southern Colorado Messianic/Hebraic Roots community, but it's taken on a special dynamic because of everyone who's joined the effort. Even in the planning and organization we've witnessed the Kingdom powerfully manifest, and it's just the beginning. Sukkot of the Rockies 2019 will be a wonderful convocation of Believers in Messiah Y'shua/Jesus from every walk of life bringing their gifts and serving each other. If you would like to be part of the planning and organizing team, then please reach out to us at: Info@SukkotOfTheRockies.org
