Charlie Baum Who's coming to Getaway 2011? (333* d) RE: Who's coming to Getaway 2011? 19 Jul 11

The prices and this year's registration form will be posted shortly (probably with a week, certainly by August 1), and the prices are essentially the same as last year. It depends on how long you come for and whether or not you're a member of FSGW or not, but it's no more than $206 if you come for the entire weekend (Friday dinner through Monday breakfast) as a non-member requiring a lower bunk.

Accommodation is in rooms with about 4 beds each, some of which are upper bunks. The rooms are heated and air-conditioned, and there are bathrooms down the hall. Given that there are only 50 rooms, privacy is hard to come by, but we can assign you to room with friends or acquaintances (or kinfolk, if they're coming). If you'd prefer to tent or RV or camp, that's quite possible [no hook-ups], and you even gain in privacy (though, alas, it's not really much cheaper).

Friday night's dinner is a pot-luck that goes on 'til very late, since people arrive at all hours and gathering everyone together at a given dinner hour is harder than herding squirrels. Your fee covers all remaining meals (Saturday breakfast onward) and midnight snacks. Also lodging and all the music you can consume. There is unlimited free coffee and tea, but because the place is run by Methodists, we can't offer free beer (or even non-free beer). On the other hand, they don't care what we sing, so the raunchiness of your repertoire is limited by your sense of propriety among the other attendees rather than any saintly ministration or administration.
