Summer Camp Commissioner Jay Goldberg has announced a one-year suspension for both managers following their participation in a bounty program, whereby the two groups attempted to poach opposing crew members, with a cash payout offered to the person who initiated the hire. Goldberg confirmed that he has become privy to information demonstrating that while former moe. Lighting director and current Umphrey’s l.d. Jefferson Waful was the most high-profile figure involved, a variety of luthiers, furriers, masseuses, cobblers, cordwainers and culinarians have been implicated.
