Subject: RE: 2003 FSGW Getaway - ideas for program
DonD..the 'Getaway' is the annual gathering of the Folklore Society of Greater Washington (FSGW) (details here)

it gets talked about a lot here, as it is on the east coast of the USA, near where Mudcat started and is usually attended by some of the regulars here....it is easy to forget that we have new people each year. We don't intend to sound like an 'in' group, and if any new folks can make it, the camp will hold twice as many people as usually show up in Oct.

It is sort of becoming a tradition for some, and there are west coast gatherings, as well as English and Australian gatherings that are heading toward a similar "place to meet other Mudcatters" status.

keep reading, and see if it fits your schedule!
