Just took the plunge and started a thread called Getaway 2014: Stories after the event for memories, stories, photos and more. It was good. It was wonderful. It was better than that.

I've been in denial about not being able to come this year, but it's time to send my love and my apologies for not saying so sooner: work and personal issues have both prevented me from being able to make the trip this year.
Y'all have fun, now, and don't do anything I wouldn't do! (That shouldn't preclude very much, actually.)
Have iPad, will FaceTime -- in case anyone needs me to participate in a workshop or such like...

" Skarpi is likely to be uncomfortable with the idea. "

And that is the truth , I will bring my self TO the Getaway
with my own money , you people have enough on your own to think of
so do not do that , If you do I will not come .

at the moment I worry the Big caldera volcano Bárđarbunga , its getting
started , the Ice is melding down 23 mtr now and its going 80 cm pr day
5.3 earthquake there in mid day now , and there has been many five O ´s earthquakes there lately ....I am in the capital right now I am going home to the East of Iceland in another 15 day s ...if am lucky ..

so the best to you all and I see you in 2015 Getaway .

MMario- "start a "bring Skarpi to Getaway for his 10th anniversary" fund"
I agree and would contribute gladly. Skarpi is likely to be uncomfortable with the idea...but we have ways of making it comfy, I'm sure.

Ah well, indeed. Better too much than not enough. Be sure to check out the descriptive blurbs, which may (or may not) make the focus of the workshops clearer.

Amos and Ernie -- any chance we could hear "Goin' To the Getaway" at the Saturday concert? Hmmm?

Thank you, Nancy and Charlie, taking the time to let us know on Mudcat, and also much gratitude to all the many people with FSGW who work throughout the year, seen and unseen, to make the Getaway happen.

As truly magical as the experience of the Getaway is for so many of us, takes much more than magic for the Getaway to happen each year. Heart felt gratitude to all of the people with the FSGW who contribute their time and talents, be that contribution an hour, or be it days, weeks or months each year to make the Getaway happen.

It warrants repeating. My deepest gratitude. I am pretty confident I speak for many others who may not check in often enough to see these threads.

NEWS FLASH!!

The schedule for the 2014 Getaway is now on line! Still "subject to change," of course, but we're hoping there won't be any more bombshells. You can get to it from the Getaway page at www.fsgw.org. (I tried twice to make a direct link to the schedule, but apparently I'm doing something wrong. Sigh.)

Anyway, it looks pretty good, and I predict a grand time for all concerned! See you there!

To the tune of "See that My Grave Is Kept Clean"

I'm goin' away don't you want to go
I'm goin' away don't you want to go
I'm goin' away to the Getaway
There on that West River shore

There's one kind favor I'll ask of you
There's one kind favor I'll ask of you
There's one kind favor I will ask of you
Use earplugs if you bunk with me.

You can make your bed with a sleeping bag
You can make your bed with a sleeping bag
You can make your bed with a sleeping bag
But bring a sheet should the nights be warm.

The meals at West River are very bad
The meals at West River are very bad
The food at West River is very bad
It don't matter, ain't why we're here.

Angel bands singin' all night long
Angel bands singin' all day long
Angel bands singin' day and night long
Singin' even at the break of dawn.

The sun comes up on the Chesapeake Bay
Sun comes up on the Chesapeake Bay
The sun comes up on the Chesapeake Bay
To the silver and gold of voices raised.

Thanks, maeve, for bringing up the Silent Auction. Yes Folks, if you are coming, please bring an item to place in the Silent Auction, and some cash or a checkbook for a winning bid on some treasure you find being offered in the auction.

All proceeds from the auction go toward the FSGW Scholarship fund - More people than you might realize have been able to attend the Getaway due to help from the scholarship fund - me included in leaner years.

Let's face it, we are an older bunch, and a lot of folks who attend are living on limited retirement incomes, plus we folkies are generally notorious for spending our lives working at what we love and gives meaning and gives back to the community rather than working for the big bucks. So as modest as the cost of the Getaway is compared to most 3 day weekend retreats to nirvana, it is still a stretch for a fair number of people.

One caveat - space for the auction is limited, so please bring something, but please don't bring a huge number of items or all the contents in the floor of your back bedroom closet, unsorted, in poor repair or ready for the trash, dust-bunnies intact:>)
