Despite rumors to the contrary I will be coming to the Getaway. All indications are that this will be the best one yet! I have been looking forward all year to this and to the opportunity to see so many of you again. David C. will also be attending. If any attendees have a bent toward bluegrass, please get in touch with him. He'd love to jam with you.

Seeya,

Allan

"Final" revised Getaway program schedule will be on line some time tomorrow afternoon/evening.

After I hear (and possibly take action on) everyone's plaints and complaints about the revision, I will put up the FINAL version (no quotation marks).

So, here's the thing! I only mentioned Scary Songs and Stories because it was done last year: I'm not even sure of the genesis of THAT! If there's no real interest, just drop it altogether. More time for jamming, and anyone with a good scary song or story can scare the folks around the campfire with Joe Offer!!

Yahoo! I'm a comin'!

Looks like some of my conflicts have gone away so I'll be a day-tripper on Saturday. I can eat and everything (last minute email to Knitpick, whew). So I'll see everyone early Saturday morning. Should I wake y'all up with a rousing rendition of "Rise Up Early In the Morning Shake the Devil Out Your Soul"?. I'm sure everyone at the Mudcat Cabin will have gone to sleep early on Friday night in order to be well rested for the fantastic schedule that Rita has lined up.

Look forward to seeing you in 5 days.

Rita,
It is probably too late for this suggestion but perhaps the Meet and Greet could be held on Fri. night say from 9-11pm or 10pm-midnight. Then Sat. would be free for the other workshops. I'm thinking that enough folk make it on Fri. night. Just a thought. We have such a great song swap on Fri. after dinner anyway.

Just a few more days. I can't wait.

Dani, It seems to me that when we were doing the original line-up of possible workshops someone asked me to include Scary Stories.

Would you like a break this year? Can drop it for now if you like. And do you remember -- Nancy asked me where it will be held -- was it in the Theater Barn last year? (Maybe it was Lorraine who said she thought it was a perfect venue. Can't remember.)

Anyway I'll be putting in about 10 revisions later today, so if you'd like to skip it this year just e-mail or PM me, or post it here. Taking things out is easy. Putting anything else in right now would be darned near impossible.... And it would free you up for the late night stuff.

Karen, It's "traditional" to have a late-night Friday sing and I wouldn't dare mess with that. Some folks really like the Meet'n'Greet and I think it's especially nice to let new attendees introduce themselves. We're cutting it back to 1 1/2 hours, with a free half hour after it so it can go on if that seems appropriate. Maybe this workshop has outlived its usefulness. If nobody comes to it this year, I guess that will tell us something.... :-)

One of the paradoxes of the Getaway is that by leading a workshop you restrict your choices. And there's always so much tempting stuff going on! -- But then, if nobody lets themselves be tied down to lead a workshop, there won't be all that tempting stuff going on, will there? Sigh....

Okay, got to go, I have to get to work revising that program grid :-)

This is NOT a complaint! (Believe me - been there, done that, scheduling is a job I will probably never voluntarily take on again in this lifetime - possibly for several lifetimes - repeat this is not a complaint. just general pissing and moaning...)

I've gone from not having any conflicts to conflict at almost every point!!!!!

Okay - I'll admit it - some of them are because I saw stuff I didn't see the first time I went through the schedule. WOW! What an incredible amount of stuff being offered this year.

Choices are going to be difficult.

BE VERY CAREFUL on your way to the Getaway, in the area of the Getaway, at the Getaway and on your way back from the Getaway. There is a serial sniper, killing people at random, at work in the area. I'm staying away this year.

The Getaway is nowhere near the area the damn sniper has been!....nobody has been injured just driving down the road!...You are in MUCH more danger from bad drivers than from a maniac with 4 million people to choose from.

Why in HELL would someone post a scare message trying to keep people from the Getaway???.. We can't stop doing everything in life, and the Getaway is as safe as any place in the state right now.

By the way...there are some updates/changes to the schedule...check the thread

Re: the silent auction... Rob (JtS) and I will be donating a case of Sleeman Silver Creek Lager (brought by Rob's father, Skipper Bob, all the way from beautiful Guelph, Ontario). It's brewed in the proud tradition started in 1834, small batch, craft brewed to the finest of standards. Canadian beer at it's best. We'll be on the lookout for other stuff to donate as I pack up this Shepherdstown apartment for the move to Georgia.

Because of an overtaxed brain the last few weeks, I'm not certain of which days and meals we registered for. I'm pretty sure we're registered for Friday night and Saturday night. I don't think we're registered for the dinner on Friday evening, but I'm not sure. Who would be the best contact person to find out for sure what we've registered for?

Thanks!

CarolC, You don't have to be registered for Friday's dinner, it's a potluck. Helpful if you pick up a bucket of chicken or something on the road, though....

MMario, post the things that are conflicts for you, either her or on the other thread: Schedule changes thread. Or, any of you can PM or e-mail me about conflicts and frustrations with the schedule.

Nancy King is coming over again this evening so we can incorporate everybody's pleas, gripes and complaints into the schedule if possible. IT CAN BE DONE! (mostly....) so speak up. If you have a conflict, chances are other folks will, too.

too-scared-to-go, you're an idiot. Since when has Aberdeen, MD, been in the Washington area? There aren't any strip malls within half an hour's drive of Camp Ramblewood. That's part of its charm! ... And no sniping incidents within a 2 hour drive of it, if we don't count your post on this thread....

So holler about your scheduling conflicts, folks, that's why Nancy is donating another evening to it, because we want to make it the best most satisfying weekend we can manage, for all of us.

I don't think anyone should avoid coming because of the serial sniper, but for those coming from the South, I would make these few suggestions.

Gas up well before you get to Fredericksburg, VA (two sniper incidents, the last guy did not heed his friends who gave him this same warning) Don't stop for gas again until you have passed all of 495.

Don't make any public stops (i.e. restaurants, shopping malls) until you have left I 495. You can stop and pick up friends at their houses in relative safety.

These are not major inconveniences. As Bill D. said, you're odds at being the next victim are slim. As he also said, no one's been shot while driving their car.

Reverse the rules for your return trip. Gas up before you reach 495. Don't stop again until your well past Fredericksburg.

The sniper has taken weekends (Sat. and Sun.) off so far. He's attacking every other day, so Mon (already happened), Wed. and Fri. are the crucial days.

CarolC, your Silent Auction gift is generous, fantastic, wonderful -- and is going to make us a mint for the scholarship fund I have no doubt.... What a neat gift.

Speaking of neat gifts, Jed Marum is sending another one. Should be here tomorrow.

His new CD isn't out yet, so he's sending us 10 pre-release copies with special liner notes that say "2002 FSGW Getaway Release." He has signed the liner notes and Rick and Mick (!), who are also on the CD, will sign them this weekend.

Is this not fun? Unique stuff, to be sold to the 10 highest bidders....

And we'll have some copies of Jed's first CD, at $10 apiece, and also 5 copies of the first program in Jed's new radio series. It's called "INTO THE WEST: The Celts in Texas" and is a live recording of a show he did in Dallas.

Here's a helpful hint for people who can't get the on line schedule to print (only the left side prints....):

If you have a fairly recent version of MS-WORD [yes, I know, it's a swear word, like BS, but tough....] I repeat, if you have MS-WORD, you can do the following:

1. On the web page with the Saturday schedule, click on "File...Save As" and save the Saturday page on your computer. Note which directory you're putting it in! -- And note the name of the saved file.

2. Do the same for the Sunday schedule.

3. Open WORD, then open either one of the web pages you just saved.

4. Click on "File.... Save As". This time, down below the file name where it says save as Web Page, click on the drop-down menu and change the type to Word Document.

5. Now WORD will print the file correctly. Have already walked a friend through this process so we know it works.

And no sniping incidents within a 2 hour drive of it, if we don't count your post on this thread....

-Ferrara, 16 Oct 02

I'm very happy that nothing happened to any of the Getaway goers. But Ferrara, your vindictive characterization of me as "idiot" says more about you than about me. Especially since the alleged snipers were caught much closer to Aberdeen than to Washington.

What a very bad way to end such a wonderful happening.

Just a geographical correction--Darlington is a little North and quite a bit East of Washington, DC. The rest area where the snipers were apprehended, west of Frederick, is a little north and quite far West of Washington DC, and much closer to DC than to Darlington.
