Subject: RE: Northern California - Camp Harmony
Gee, Bev, you went to bed early. I got quite rained on thank you and probably sacked by 3:30 or 4:00, I forget. This time I didn't have to worry about getting sick -- since I arrived with bronchitis -- but I survived pretty well on lots of C and decongestants and singing, though by the 4th I was singing mostly bass.
Just got back home here to NW Oregon and 6" of snow on the ground, freezing weather, lots of branches down, but it's still good to be home.
Wonderful music and friends as always.
Open mike, I don't know, but I would guess the "days" are deliniated that way (Lunch, Dinner, Breakfast = one day) because that is the time period most people attend for. Because the camp is out in the tulies, not near SF, people driving in for a part of the time tend to arrive for lunch, not breakfast, and tend to like to have something to eat before they depart of a morning. Part of it is based on more afternoon workshops than morning ones, which comes from how musicians like to stay up late to sing and play.
That change has been in place for maybe 5 to 10 years. You can always stay for different periods of time by providing your own food or going out to town for meals.
