Well, shoot, how did that happen? OK, to resume:

Part 4 - Tinker;
         Kathy Westra, Jennifer Woods;

Part 5 - Another Shellbacker I regret I can't identify;
         Col K with Momnopp;
         Dani, Laura Sailer;
         Jim Bunch ("JAB").

Part 6 - Jim Bunch;
         Big Mick;
         Joe Offer.

Part 7 - Joe Offer;
         Big Mick;
         Cabins and cars;
         View of pavilion (not much used this year -- too chilly!) and lake, beyond power pole and strange box-like structure.

Part 8 - A workshop outside the theatre barn;
         Dick Greenhaus with part of his stock;
         View of Camsco booth and silent auction area, with Alaska Mike;
         Not completely sure, but think this is Momnopp's son, Dylan.

Part 9 - Peggy Jones, longtime FSGW member and Getaway-goer;
         Marge and Roger ("in Baltimore") Himler;
         Marge and Roger again.

Hope that helps, Sorcha. I wouldn't be surprised if Bill D puts up some pictures before too long -- at least I hope he will!

Some of my favorite moments this year were the hilarious "Cinderella" skit at the Sunday concert; the wonderful dining-hall singing Saturday night; the fact that a bunch of people came to my "Women's Lives in the Bad Old Days" workshop and made it really good; making the winning bid on an absolutely gorgeous vest donated to the Silent Auction by Marge Himler; a great gospel workshop followed by an amazing mini-concert by Sandy and Elizabeth LaPrelle; and much more.

By the way, those who are worried that there are no young people in folk music these days would have been pleased to see the number of young singers at the Getaway. Darriel Day, Allan Rathbone and Dan Schatz (all 2nd generation FSGW types) all led workshops, Bob Zentz's daughter Skye performed admirably on the Saturday concert, and 15-year-old Elizabeth LaPrelle knocked everybody's socks off. She is fantastic, folks, and she'll only get better as she gets older. She has a perfect "mountain" voice and presents a song beautifully. Look for more of her.

Well, I'm about done for now. Still recovering, y'know. Can't wait till next year.

Cheers, Nancy
