Charlie Baum Getaway 2008 (436* d) RE: Getaway 2008 07 Aug 08


At long last, the registration form for the 2008 Getaway is available for downloading. Print it out, fill it in, and send it back to Dean Clamons, the registrar at the address on the bottom of the form. We made the form two pages this year to make it a little more readable and hopefully, a little less confusing.

The Getaway is a weekend of music-making and socializing with folks from the local Washington, DC area and from all over the world. Note that it's earlier this year than the past couple of years—the first weekend of October—which may mean possibilities for gatherings outdoors.

We have 50 rooms with beds in heated (and air-conditioned) buildings. You'll need to bring bedding, pillows, and towels. We'll provide comfortable beds, with bathrooms and hot showers down the hall (with separate men's and women's facilities in every building). There are lots of bunk beds, and there's a discount if you'll accept an upper bunk.
You can even bring a tent or an RV (but no hook-ups available). Because the camp charges us, RV or tent campers can get no discount beyond what you'd get for taking an upper bunk.

Our public gathering areas and several of the bedroom buildings are handicapped accessible. If you can't handle an upper bunk, please let us know. We can also handle special dietary needs—let us know in advance. We even have a kitchen available to us 24/7 with refrigerator, freezer, and microwave, if you want an in-between meal snack.

There is NO SMOKING is allowed in any of the camp buildings. Because it's a facility run by the Methodist Church, we are asked not to bring any alcohol.

We have rates for one, two, or three nights, and one for day-trippers who don't want to eat. (You MUST register in advance if you wish to dine!) If you register for two nights, your registration fee covers three meals and a late-night snack both days on Saturday and Sunday. A three-night registration gives you an additional night's lodging and breakfast
on Monday morning. One-night registration gives you all meals and snacks on either Saturday or Sunday and, if you wish, a bed on either adjacent night.

Our rates have gone up a little this year because the camp's charges to us have gone up. If it's a problem, don't worry—the scholarship fund is healthy enough to ask for a price-break if you need it.
