Hard to believe that, though the program idea thread is humming along, I have not seen a thread for who is coming, which is not only fun in raising anticipation but can be very helpful in planning transport and other needs.
I plan to be there!

Kris is going to teach one more year, so it still isn't practicable for her. I asked her this afternoon, "How angry would you be if I went to the Getaway by myself?" She said she wouldn't be. So I'm considering it, but need a lot more information about how it works before I decide.

Hi Peter -- it would be great to see you at the Getaway, with or without Kris. Maybe next year for her?   So what "information about how it works" do you need? I will be happy to answer any questions you may have, as, I'm sure, would Charlie Baum and any number of others. Very shortly the registration form will be posted on the FSGW web site (I'll let everyone know on this thread and the program thread when it's ready), and that will let you know about costs, etc. The August FSGW Newsletter will have an article about the Getaway, and that will also be available on the website, about the first of the month. If you have other questions, just ask! Hope you can make it!

Alas, Edmund and I will not be there because we can't be in two places at the same time. We are going to Ireland for three weeks, and unfortunately the period of our absence overlaps the Getaway.

I sincerely hope the wonders of the Frank Hart festival make up for a complete miss of the Getaway for the first time since we first heard of it, back in the Ramblewood days (actually, 2000 ...)

Wish I could, Bobert. We can't afford the trip or the registration, and we'll be focused on getting the yurt ready for us to move in. I can't very well desert TL with so much to do before winter.

I'd like to, though.

Questions I can't find answers to on the website:

What does it cost?

What kind of accommodations are there? Rooms? Bunkhouse? Tenting space? RV or camper space? All of the above?

What does the cost include? Meals? Bed? Camping space? Snacks? Unlimited free beer?

As a church facility, do they forbid dirty songs? (There goes half my songlist!)

will there be people singing very long songs in obscure alternate tunings about how miserable they are because the Universe doesn't understand their need to be loved?

More as they occur to me....

The prices and this year's registration form will be posted shortly (probably with a week, certainly by August 1), and the prices are essentially the same as last year. It depends on how long you come for and whether or not you're a member of FSGW or not, but it's no more than $206 if you come for the entire weekend (Friday dinner through Monday breakfast) as a non-member requiring a lower bunk.

Accommodation is in rooms with about 4 beds each, some of which are upper bunks. The rooms are heated and air-conditioned, and there are bathrooms down the hall. Given that there are only 50 rooms, privacy is hard to come by, but we can assign you to room with friends or acquaintances (or kinfolk, if they're coming). If you'd prefer to tent or RV or camp, that's quite possible [no hook-ups], and you even gain in privacy (though, alas, it's not really much cheaper).

Friday night's dinner is a pot-luck that goes on 'til very late, since people arrive at all hours and gathering everyone together at a given dinner hour is harder than herding squirrels. Your fee covers all remaining meals (Saturday breakfast onward) and midnight snacks. Also lodging and all the music you can consume. There is unlimited free coffee and tea, but because the place is run by Methodists, we can't offer free beer (or even non-free beer). On the other hand, they don't care what we sing, so the raunchiness of your repertoire is limited by your sense of propriety among the other attendees rather than any saintly ministration or administration.

Peter--
in the words of Joseph Welch:
Have you no sense of decency, sir? At long last, have you left no sense of decency?

Peter,

In last year's parody work shop I sang a song from the Civil War. It's topic was the South's collection of the contents of ladies chamber pots to process into nitre for gunpowder. There were no kids present, but it certainly wasn't clean. I would really look forward to meeting you again. We last met at the Mudcat party that Barry Finn hosted over a decade ago.

If you have any new CD's bring them along for sail. The same for any old CD's, but I have the first two Woodchuck's Revenge tapes.
