I like the Adirondack idea myself, but it should probably be closer to a transportation center. Think that would mean Boston, NYC, Philly, or DC. Berkshires? Catskills? Poconos?

How many people are teachers or students who would need a June-Aug. date rather than something earlier or later?

Here's a 2006 Calendar.

Eric: If it's to be in the Philly area, it probably shouldn't be the last weekend in August, since that is the weekend of the Philadelphia Folk Festival. The local folkies will be flocking to that as well as putting up their friends from out of town, and the non-local folkies will be either camping out at the Fest or clogging up the local motels, so it might be hard to find a place to stay in the area that weekend.

Actually, I'd vote for September in the Philly area: the weather is less likely to be terribly chilly, and the local folk scene is "between" the summer festival season and the regular autumn-spring concert season. June's nice, too.

Troll is correct - Florida is HOT in the summer. I like the Philly idea. Anywhere up there in October would be a riot! And the Fall colors are incredible as I recall.

I think this would be a good idea.

What time of year,? Easter is about the only chance I would get, unless it goes on in one of the half terms, but then it becomes a midweek meeting. Last week in August is reasonably sound.

I vote for East Coast US..Philly sounds great..the main thing is to be near airports that have good flights...getting to Canada can be pretty expensive...if it was a bit more toward Boston, people who wanted to go on to Newfoundland or Maine could find flights, ferries, etc...well, from Portland to Nova Scotia there is a ferry. And having something easy to get to from an airport is also important.....flying from Germany say and then havingt to rent a car and drive a few hours might not be fun with jet lag. mg

Nope.........If we can pull this off at all, it'd be a Catter function. Let's sat we pull 150 Catters......The actual FSGW schedule and all will be boogered up beyond recognition. Besides, a lot of folks are going to be getting together in everchanging "packs" and I can see some unfortunate situations developing.

Then again, I'm probably wrong. Skip it.

Camp Ramblewood is the closest thing to West Chester, PA, home of Max and the Mudcat server. Near Philadelphia. Also close to Washington, DC, which is probably the biggest conglomeration of Mudcatters. Third weekend in October! Fall colors are incredible then. (You'll invade the FSGW Getaway.) It'll cost somewhere between $130 and $150 per person for the weekend, including all meals and a bed in a group cabin. (Your travel expenses are extra, but nearby Baltimore has cheap flights to many places.) Camp's overnight capacity is almost 500, and with daytrippers, the numbers can go into the thousands. (They're planning a BIG folk festival there next May.)

You can practice by coming next year and the year after, if you can afford it, or save up your travel dough for 2006.

I'd prefer somewhere along the East coast... I like the East coast areas some real nice places - loads to see... Florida....erm... YUK!

Sorry that's a personal yuk, not meant to be contraversial, but that's what I think...

East coast is fairly reasonable (flight prices) to get to too.

I can vouch for the fact that there are some great little homebrew pubs in New England, which serve English-type ale. And the fall is rather spectacular! I seem to recall a wonderfully-tasting porter in a little pub somewhere in Vermont (once it had been allowed to warm up a bit!). I was there on a morris tour with the Chameleonic Morris Men in 1999 and the local morris sides (and folkies generally) were very hospitable. We had a great time and were there for 10 days - you would need to plan for at least a week I think.

Ale, ale glorious ale, served up in pewter it tells its own tale!"

I vote Yes, and I vote East Coast, U.S. of A. I can figure out a way to get meself up there, for sure. Although Alice's idea of Montana would certainly provide an experience even only a few Americans have had. But much as I love that region, New England would be easier to reach and probably has a higher concentration of Mudcateers, yes?

Maybe by then I'll actually be able to play the guitar at the SAME TIME I sing, and in FRONT of PEOPLE!!! Whoo-hoo!

We can start making little 'possum doodads now to sell as concessions, along with the usual kissing booths and foot-rub booths and Oh-my-what-are-you-going-to-do-with-THAT booths.

By the way, there is good beer in the US. Lots of it. It's just mainly made by small breweries, that don't advertise nationally the way the big dishwater operations do.
