The rain bums me out with regard to kids. Depending on how many children we end up with, it would be really helpful to set aside some indoor space for younger kids to play in. Parents/ grandparents can take turns watching them, but it's just not fair to ask small kids to sit and be quiet through workshops all day. I never did when I was a kid at the Getaway - we played all day, ran around, and if something interested us or there was a children's workshop or mini-concert we'd poke our heads in.

Unfortunately, unlike Prince William, there is no easy cabin to designate... and we are not allowed in the dining hall between meals.

Perhaps the ante-room off the old dining hall? (where performers wait at the concert?)

*sigh* every place has its pluses & minuses.

It's pretty important. The FSGW made a point of asking people to bring children this year, and we have really wanted to. This year we were specifically asked to, so we're giving it a try. But that can only work if the festival makes some accommodation for them. If it's raining, any kids that come need to have some space they can move around and make noise in. Otherwise the message is pretty clear - folks like the idea of children being around, but not the reality. It's hardly fair to ask children to come to a weekend event and then ask them to be seen and not heard. And it's not the way to get younger families interested in coming to the Getaway.

Sorry if I seem strident here, but this is important.

Try to relax, Dan. In addition to George's fantasy games for kids, Carly is bringing some craft stuff for them. Also, I've asked Jennifer to let me know if one of the cabin lounges might be available for kids to play. And maybe it won't pour rain the whole time (we can always hope...)

Oh, good! That's what I needed to know. I think five is a bit young for the fantasy games, but craft stuff is good, and dedicated space would be very good indeed.

Even better is knowing that we can hand our beautiful bairn off to his grandma at the beginning of the weekend and know he's in good hands for - oh, at least a few weeks while we head off to Bermuda. Right? Right? Hello?

Dan, I'm bringing plastic beads with BIG holes and gimp that are very small person friendly, as well as glass and other beads for older kids (7- 105 year olds) and cords and beading thread to make necklaces, bracelets, anklets, bookmarks, hatbands, etc...I'm also bringing lots of origami paper and instructions for folding all sorts of things, and colored pens for decorating I may bring a jigsaw puzzle, if I can find an appropriate one. We are planning on setting up part of the Retreat Center middle room as a Crafts Area; a cabin lounge for kids as well would be great.

Feel free to call me; my number is on the recent Getaway email you all received.

Sure, I'll take care of the beautiful bairn while you go off to Bermuda. I assume the Bermuda trip means no new car this year, right?

Jennifer says she's housed all the families with kids in the same cabin (she couldn't remember off the top of her head which it was, but you'll find out when you get there), and the lounge room in that cabin can be designated as kids' play space.

BTW, George Rathbone says the age range for the fantasy games is 5-13, so you might want to give it a try. No pressure, of course.

I have to wonder what was the rational for bringing kids? Do we need to define "Kids"? Small children are easily bored in adult settings, so, if we are going to invite them, we must keep that in mind.

They'll probably plug in their earbuds and play on their iPads or Gameboys and ignore everyone around them. Hours of fun, as long as the batteries last or if there is an electric outlet nearby. The kids playing games outside, doing crafts, that sounds like children from 1966.

My personal view is that if you want your children, or any children, to grow up with the view that making music (or baskets, or telling stories) are worthwhile and fun things to do, more fun then passively absorbing other people's products,they need to be around people of all ages who are doing these things, and enjoying themselves. It has been my observation, with my own son and many other families, that those kids running around seemly paying no attention are the ones who are making music and art as adults. The kids who stayed home with babysitters grew up to be fine people, I'm sure, but the folk world was that strange thing their parents did. The Getaway has a long history of having children around (ask Dan Schatz) but we have had a gap of a few years of few or no children coming. We would like to offer families the opportunity to come to the Getaway; as every parent knows, it has to be a different experience if you are responsible for kids ( and we do not offer formal babysitting.) But if we do have families coming, we can help them organize kid watching, or whatever works for them . The Getaway has always tried to be flexible to the needs of its participants. We are confident, based on experience, that parents know they must be responsible for their children not disturbing workshops. Hence Dan's legitimate concern about rain space for the little ones.

Thanks, everybody, for helping accommodate the kids. Carly said it so well - feeling welcome as a small child at events like the Getaway is the reason I and so many others still love this music and this community. (When I was a kid, my four favorite dates of the year were Christmas, my birthday, the Washington Folk Festival, and the Getaway. I still feel largely the same way.)

Must go; much to do before we head down.

We didn't miss the mess, but not too long after hitting it, re-routed through Louisiana... or Philadelphia or something. I dunno, but it took less time to get home than to get there--even with going over that big bridge thingie in NYC. I'm tired. I didn't stay up last night because I figured I had to get up the next morning and the previous two nights had been late ones. Friday was chatting, Saturday was a campfire.

I took my camera, and it never made it out of its case. Fun won out.

...and I need sleep.

I was able to make it this year and actually got to stay in Peace and enjoy all of the late night music making Friday and Saturday night. I only made it to 5:00 am on Saturday night though, not like some of you guys.

What great a great time. My most favorite was backing up Meteora on some late night tunes (Come into my kitchen was Awesome), and also the slow jam with Jon Newlin and Amy Davis. Man can they play.

Oh, and I actually led 4 songs, and got through them without crashing and burning. A real first :-).

And seeing everyone was priceless!!!!

Elsewhere I wrote this as an example of that "Getaway spirit" I thinlk it belongs here too
"What can I write about the Getaway? singing and Mummers, friendship and Max as an Egyptian Princess! everyone being on voice, and one of the most MAGIC moments ever, when, after the Sunday evening concert a very respected singer came over and apologised for not singing a song I had asked for earlier in the w/e then said, "I will sing it for you now" and started, and as she sang others around joined in on the chorouses singing harmonies, until there was about 10 altogether singing "Tenting tonight" creating a perfect and Magical few moments !! So a big and Personal THANK YOU to Judy Cook and ALL the other participants!! "
My thanks also to the FSGW freiends who may not be Mudcatters!1 (there are some) who make this old English person so welcome and at home each time I visit, Sorry To Joe, but I only sang "the Gladiator" after much pressure had been applied!!

It was a great Getaway. In addition to all the regulars there were three of my very favorite Maniacs there. Will brown, Jim Loney and Kat Logan. Excellent entertainers on their own and when combined in Meteora, just fabulous. It really pleased me to see them blend in so well in such a new venue.

I got over served again on Friday evening and paid for it dearly on Saturday. Even on Sunday I was so hung over I was not able to play the guitar for shaking like a dog passing pine cones. Still, it was worth it picking with Amos. It was sorta like being sea sick; first I was afraid I was going to die, then I was afraid I wasn't.

The NY Pike was a trial, bumper to bumper for miles and miles. We finally escaped to I- 295 for a while, then that was bunged up just as bad. We finally got back on the NJ pike and I missed the turn for the Garden State Parkway and we ended up buying the George Washington Bridge.
Got home about 11 pm with both eyes in the same socket; died for 7 hours.
I told myself that this is probably my last Getaway, but, the death threats may make me change my mind.

To all you wonderful folks who approve of what Jacqui and I are doing these days, thank you so much. My head is still living in the past when I had a singing voice, that growling out the words to songs that I used to sing is hard for me to settle for. NO! I'm not fishing!
