Charlie Baum Anyone with time to run SkarpiFund? (Getaway) (72* d) RE: Anyone with time to run SkarpiFund? (Getaway) 23 Jul 09


Ferrara gave a pretty good description of the scholarship fund. It basically offers price breaks to those who cannot afford the whole cost of the Getaway. The usual question, asked in private and confidentially, is "well, how much CAN you afford?" Most years, we can make it affordable for everybody who wants to come. It covers only "tuition" and does not cover travel expenses.

However, there's a long tradition of folks helping friends to come to the Getaway, from privately funding travel, to organizing carpools, to arranging for hospitality in the days surrounding the Getaway so people don't need to spend on hotels. I don't think anyone is planning to drive to Maryland passing through Iceland, so we'll need to arrange a different form of journey.

Nobody gets paid for performing--it's not a festival in that sense, but rather much more of a sharing time.
