The local suckers organizers & planners who do the Getaway seldom think 'much' about it until after our 2 day festival at Glen Echo park the 1st weekend in June. We are in the last stages of planning that.) (If you can be in the DC area then, it is really a great place)

(When the Getaway was really 92.418% local, we often didn't get really into gear until August...and a lot of the planning still doesn't happen until then.)

I'm sure Nancy will pop on with what she knows... (no doubt some ideas have been tossed about about guests who might be available.)

Well, don't go hounding me for potatoes just because I come from Idaho. Or sheep either, for that matter.

As far as I can tell right now, barring strikes, earthquakes, medical problems and other things over which I have almost no control, I'll be there.

Yes, I can bring a rapier...but a dagger would be more convenient.

Well, the bottom line is, yes, it's too soon to ask. As Bill pointed out, a lot of FSGW folks have to get through the Festival before they can even begin to thnk about planning the Getaway.

That said, rest assured the the planning HAS begun. We are in the process of lining up our official invited guests (not as simple a task as it might seem, since we can't pay them anything), and have so far confirmed Debby McClatchy, Caroline Paton, Linnea Palmer Paton, and Molly Andrews. More are pending. In a few weeks we'll be asking for workshop suggestions, so get your thinking caps on.

Rapaire, I'm delighted to hear you'll be joining us this year! And it sounds as if we'll have a lot of other fine folks returning. Please do, in fact, let us know if you intend to come -- it helps with the planning.

Menus? You gotta be kidding, Mary! We have NOTHING to do with that, fortunately or unfortunately, depending on your point of view.

Sleeping arrangements? What exactly is it that you want to know? I expect the arrangements will be pretty much as they have been in the past, but Jennifer can't even begin to think about that until all the registrations are in, etc.

Speaking of registrations, a few decisions have yet to be made before we can put the registration form on line, and those decisions won't be made until July, in all likelihood. So cool yer jets, folks, and relax in the certain knowledge that it will be totally fabulous, as usual.

Looking forward to seeing you all in October!

Nancy

"Will there be an adequate stock of various potables?"

When I was in Wichita, I sometimes ate at the 3rd Pizza Hut ever opened...before a standard 'look'. They rented space in a ex-restaurant space on the 2nd floor of a building near the university. One night, a friend brought in a bottle of red wine (they didn't even serve beer!) and set it on the table.
Soon a BIG waiter came stalking over, looked sternly at the fellow and announced..."You're not allowed to have that in here!..so will you please keep it under the table?"

This is a Methodist camp... the rules will be explianed...

Rap -- Mary has answered your questions accurately, if over-succinctly.

If transporting a sleeping bag is a problem, as it often is for folks coming from a long way off, let us know closer to the date and we'll be sure someone brings extra bedding you can use.

On the matter of "potables," please check out this thread, in which things on this topic are spelled out pretty well.

"Potables," of course, includes fruit juice, coffee, tea, water, soda, milk -- you know, the kind of beverages most folkies usually consume.

Rap, Rapaire - the outhouses are heated and usually have a full supply of Sears catalogues on the floor too. You may be expected to slip the valets (Big Mick, Bobert, Amos, Bruce, etc.) a little sump'n (like a potable or a special favor) but it's not a law. And you don't have to sew name tags in your clothes unless you plan to shed them in places other than your bunk room. (Maybe during the floozy dance at Bobert's Blues Band?)

Encouraging him in such matters is ill-advised, Genie. A tall beefy man well past middle age, Rapaire is not something to see shedding his garments.

On the other hand, maybe he and Lonesome can partner up and bring about a dual-moon system (or if the weather gets chilly, a Blue Moon event).
