Charlie Baum FSGW Getaway Oct, 2015 - lost & found posted!! (114* d) RE: FSGW Getaway Oct 2 - 5, 2015 - schedule posted!! 30 Sep 15

The Getaway should be able to happen. I talked to the folks at West River this afternoon. Even during the last big storm that sent a storm surge up the Chesapeake Bay, Hurricane Isabel, all their buildings stayed dry, and their paved parking lots were in good shape. (Just everybody--don't park off the pavement!) The worst scenario they imagined was if high winds take the power out--they have generators for the water system and the dining hall, so we can flush toilets and they can feed us, although the other buildings and cabins could be dark, so bring flashlights or lanterns, just in case.

We're keeping an eye on the storm, which has been VERY difficult to predict. If the Getaway has to be cancelled (which I think is very unlikely), there are a LOT of us who live in the DC area, especially Silver Spring, and we will party here (and find room to put put up guests amongst us.) My guess is that we will have a fine time, but wet. Bring rain gear, for sure.

If any problems arise, we'll post on the FSGW website: , and we'll try to post here as well.
