That's going to be a great program. I wouldn't want to change any of it. However, if there any spots left open, do you think a session on crime(outlaws, highwaymen, prisons, hangings, beheadings, etc)might be possible?

Whoa! I say, Whoa! On this side of the American continent, at least, there are only 24 hours a day available. Just how is this done?

Actually, I would love to see a tentative agenda- when do things begin, how many things overlap, when do things end? At this rate, it feels like the only time we'll get to just plain play is while loping between activities.

Love it.

After dinner, folks start separating out into sessions, and everyone is welcome to sit in on any one of them. You will not be hurting for time to play together. BTW, what instruments are you and KT bringing?

since Camp Ramblewood (once cleverly called "Camp Escher") is on a hill, all you need to do for your exercise program is choose workshops that require moving from one building to another....

If your goal is to avoid exercise, pick one spot for morning and one for afternoon, and dont move....you will have fun either way. For those who have never been there, I will post some 'general' pictures of what former years looked like...maybe later today.

From: Jeri

Edmund, it's just in my nature to come up with ideas that no one has thought of before. I thought I was being terribly original.

Rita, I think one always has to address 'punishment' when they talk about 'crime'. Otherwise, it just looks like bad guys get away with all sorts of things. Plus, there are a few songs about punisment that don't talk about the crime. All those 'gallows tree' songs where people are wondering what they're going to get when the guy's dead. A huge percentage of All Songs Ever Written will fit this workshops... murder, theft, rape, poaching, incest, adultery, beheadings, hangings, naked pages with big swords, damning people's eyes, eels (or marrowbones), throwing people off the ship or leaving them on and sinking it, transporting people someplace horrible such as Australia...
...maybe you should have a workshop for "Songs that Don't Fit in Crime & Punishment." There ought to be a couple.

Ebbie, Friday night ends when people fall over. Saturday, there are workshops, then the concert, then it ends when people fall over. Sunday is a lot like Saturday, but with gospel music. On Monday, we eat breakfast and sing (if our voices still work), and we try to avoid falling over because it was too hard to get up in the first place. At some point on Monday, various 'shooers' come around with cattle prods and tell us to go home.

Last year's Getaway was wonderful. I've often thought during this year that it just couldn't get any better. But now, after reading all this I'm not so sure. Waiting for the Getaway to come around again keeps me going all year long. I feel sorry for anyone who can't make it. Rita, Carly, Nancy, and all the other behind the scenes folk, thanks for all the hard work you are doing on this weekend. I can't wait!

Sinsull, the list posted in this thread by Rita on 9/27 at 9:56 p.m. is as close as we can come to an "agenda" at this point. We're still waiting for responses from some of the people we have contacted, and when we get those, we'll have to sit down and figure things out more closely. But that list should give you a general idea, keeping in mind all the caveats Rita mentioned.

Whatever the exact program, it's bound to be a blast! We haven't had a bad Getaway yet, and this is the 40th one!

Hmm, I guess I'd better get my registration in! I was waiting till I found out if I could stay over till Monday morning, but it looks like that's not to be. One of these years...

Anyhow, folks, your patience will be rewarded before long!

Looking forward to seeing everybody!

Here is the Getaway schedule:

Saturday schedule grid
Sunday schedule grid

To print these files, it may help to select "Landscape" in the printer file setup.

Proofread them, please! I know there are errors.

The timing of the workshops was very tight this year. There are a number of leaders with time constraints, which limited us. We try to set up different styles of workshops for various musical tastes in each time slot. But we know most of us have wide ranging musical interests so of course there are conflicts.

Workshop leaders, make sure we haven't scheduled you in two places at the same time. Make sure your name is spelled right. Make sure the workshop we have you doing is the right one!

And, please let us know if you have a conflict, or are very unhappy about missing whatever is scheduled against you. We may be able to move you, although it is a very tight schedule. Or, we may be able to find another co-leader to assist or replace you so you can see at least part of the conflicting workshop.

We have been asked to set up workshops on "The Songs Kids Really Sing" and on "Nature, Plants, Trees, Gardens" etc.

The problem with "Nature" is that it had to be scheduled against some real blockbuster workshops. We moved it about four times but in a nice, full schedule there are always conflicts. Would anyone like to lead this, where we have it scheduled?

The problem with "Kids" is that we just didn't know who to ask. Who is fluent in this kind of song? The kids concerned are about 9 to 12 years old and have made it clear they don't want "nice" songs about little duckies, they want parodies and irreverent stuff if possible.

SINSULL (and Kendall, probably) are going to miss half of the Fielding workshop on Saturday, and I'll miss half of theirs. (I almost said 'Rick' workshop, but there are enough guys named Richard - Mostly 'Dick' - so you could use that as a title some year. 'The Large Richard Workshop'. I'll stop now.

Anyway, they'll miss half, but if you slide the RF workshop down, I'll miss Elizabeth LaPrelle, and I'll complain about that.

Sunday, from 11:30 to lunch, I want to be at everything listed. I don't think you can do much about that though.

Sinsull, I see what you mean. I'm starting a list of conflicts we might be able to do something about, so I'll put your comments on it.

By the way, I'm going to start a thread (Prety Soon Now, when I have some leisure time ha-ha....) on Elizabeth LaPrelle's brand new first CD. Oh my goodness it is good. She'll have them at the Getaway, of course.

GETAWAY CRAFT & CD MARKETPLACE

The space between the dining hall and the TV room is our Marketplace. For example, Folk Legacy and Camsco Music set up tables there when they can get to the Getaway. And Bill and I set up a table of our woodworking. Etc Etc Etc.

Feel free to bring your own CD's or crafts for sale. Except for FL and Camsco it's mostly on the honor system, since no one wants to sit and take money when they could be off making music.

This year we're asking people if they would make a donation, earmarked either for the Getaway Fund or the Scholarship Fund, based on 3 to 5 percent of their craft and CD sales. It's purely voluntary though!

We have a Silent Auction in the marketplace area to benefit the Getaway Scholarship Fund. (Minimum bid increase is $1.00) Be generous in your bids -- it benefits us all since it lets some of our favorite people come to the Getaway in years when they couldn't afford it otherwise.

This year, there will be a Make-Your-Own-Earrings area, with materials, findings, & instructions. It will be available all weekend and the small fee will benefit the Scholarship fund.

Any other ideas & suggestions?

Well, Mike, you said it isn't critical, so I don't feel your request puts any pressure on us. And it didn't sound like whining/whinging, just an honest comment on what you would prefer.

But, you know, I have been rushing to get this posted for more than one reason: First, people are very eager to see it; and second, we now have until Tuesday to get people's feedback and see if we can tweak it into being a bit better for everyone. ... And then give people a quick chance to look at the tweaked version, and see what we inadvertently made much worse....

If I can move all the songs in the White House back for half an hour, for instance, so that Kids doesn't totally overlap Kendal & Jacqui's wedding celebration, we can have a fantastic leader for kids songs (Gorgeous Gary, who never stopped being a kid, thank heaven....).

One great thing about the Web is this kind of feedback loop is now possible.

You may an e-mail annoucement as well as the notice on this thread. We want to reach the non-mudcatters for their feedback too, so will e-mail all the registered people and the ones we know have been lollygagging and aren't registered yet but we know they are coming. :-)

The Committee may not be able to meet before Sunday, but we may do a few things via phone and e-mail.

Rita

My brain is exploding! I can't be in three places at once! Guess that means another great Getaway.

I thought the wedding hour was supposed to be a surprise. Kendall was genuinely concerned when I acted stupid today (Don't say it, Captain!) about what he and Jacqui were planning for an affair. I asked about a sit down supper. Does SHIVEREE mean anything to you people? hee hee.

YAY Dani!

Oh No Sinsull, you wouldn't!!!! WEll, I guess you would -- maybe we should keep their cabin assignment a secret? Anyway, Tinker and I sorta decided it was time to go public with the wedding party.

SINS, look at the schedule, a sit down LUNCHEON is much easier to place in this time slot. And Dinner is so much more formal....The Cap'n requested simple, and by scheduling things around luncheon we can avoid the necessity of black tie and move to simple elegance as a dress code. Now if you can just convince Kendall that a Top Hat is fitting and proper....

Reminds me of an old (I think New Yorker) cartoon in which Hannibal is tapping his toe impatiently waiting for his wife to be ready. She is dressed to the 9's: feathed hat, pearls, heels, the whole bit. She says, "Dammit! I thought you said we were crossing the Alps with ELEGANCE!"

YAY Dani! I found out you were going to the Getaway the same day I heard you might not. Would not be the same without you.

note....the longish outlook weather forecast indicates a good chance for rain, at least on Saturday, so be prepared...temperature high 40s at night and high 60s during the day. Cooler than we'd like, but not unexpected.

I drive this BIG van, and will have some extra blankets and such available, and perhaps those who are driving and have room could add an extra to offer those who are flying and might be short....

I am debating whether to bring a space heater for that back room, as the long thin one I had the last two years disappeared late Sunday night last year...*sigh*....we shall see. (It is nice to warm the hands before playing...)

I can bring some extra comforters and pillows if they fit in Tinker's car. Towels too.
