Art - I would suspect it will run about the same as the last few years -

for the full shot, non-member;
all nights and meals
roughly 175 US. - give or take a couple bucks.


Registration usually starts about september - it might run a little later this year since the getaway is later. They still have a summer festival to get through - and their monthly stuff.

*sigh*...we tried. Getting ANY camp we can afford is always a problem...and decent camps are scheduled years in advance. Must be nice...for the camp.

(We could have it in Prince Georges County Forest, like we did when we were...ummm...younger...with NO heat, barely tolerable bathrooms and a couple of gang showers and a limit of about 150 registrants...and having to so kitchen work for 2 hours and plan all our own meals. Maybe in the next couple of years we'll get back to a date we want)

Yo, Bill -- that was Prince WILLIAM Forest Park. I'd think you'd remember that -- or maybe your name is really George? :<)

And aside from all the other problems with PWFP, They wouldn't confirm reservations till only about 2-3 months beforehand. Makes it hard to plan. And the "bathrooms" were totally INtolerable, IMHO.

We'll keep trying for an October date at West River, and maybe eventually we'll get it.

MMario's right -- registration information will be along in the summer. The date's the important thing right now.

Most of the rooms are just bunks...usually 2 bunks....we are not sure how it will work. If we don't fill the place, we 'might' be able to use a lot of rooms, and allow more folks to have lowers...but I don't have the floor plans and of course, we have no head count yet..

Aw, rats! I have accumulated enough FF miles to pay for my airfare, and I had made a space for the gathering in October, thinking it would be roughly at the same time of year. Since it's in early Nov., and I've already got several bookings in San Diego for that trip, I won't be able to make it unless (doubtful) I can manage to reschedule those.   I'm really disappointed. I was so looking forward to finally going to the Gathering.

I guess you guys are gonna have to have an extra good time to make up for that.

BTW, what is the weather like in that neck of the woods in early November?

Is it really the same weekend as NOMAD? I surely hope not. Ruth and I (and perhaps the rest of the Gospel Messengers) are seriously considering coming down but if it's the same weekend as NOMAD we would have to reconsider.   NOMAD is very special to us, and I can almost see it out my living room window. It definitely is closer...

Anybody know for sure when NOMAD is? I'll have to check my literature..

I should have said two SETS of bunks in most rooms..(that I saw)...There are small cabins, and also rooms in a main, larger building. I can't remember if there were some dorm style rooms...no doubt Charley Baum will pop by one day soon and clarify a lot of it.

The weather in early Nov. can be anything from 75 F in the daytime to snow. (both are unlikely)..We have often had a warm spell after the first chilly snap, and not had any serious cold until Jan...but this is weather! We should not be surprised to have chilly nights...but we have had those in Oct., which is one reason thewre were so many votes for an all-weather, heated camp.

Getaway weekend has become a high point of my year - and the Welcome and work the FSGW folk put into this weekend are phenomanal. I almost signed up and became a member last year - then decided I almost prefferred to pay the higher fee - since I really can't participate the other 361 days a year - and don't want it to look like I'm just registering to get a price cut.

We do apologize to those for whom the conflict with NOMAD is a problem. We would love to have avoided such conflicts, but it just wasn't possible. Our choices were to stay at Ramblewood (and none of us wanted that) or go for the earliest date West River had available. So there it is. We're looking forward to seeing as many of you as can possibly make it!

I know it is way too early to line up help, but I definitely will volunteer to help again this year, and I'm sure many other 'Catters who can't help with the main work of organizing will also want to do what they can at the event itself. Be sure someone from FSGW starts a thread for volunteering when the time comes to start that kind of planning!

NOMAD is the North American Music And Dance Festival, Dani. It's held in Connecticut... most recently in New Haven. It is usually a couple weeks one side of the Getaway. I've done a gospel workshop there for many years, and it's a wonderful festival. Hopefully next year they won't be on the same weekend so I can come down to the Getaway... maybe get the Gospel Messengers to come along, too. There's always a good contingent of D.C.ers that come to NOMAD, so we'll miss them, too..

Oops. No Getaway for me this year unless they get that cloning thing figured out between now and November. Like Jerry, I've sung at NOMAD every year for many (15? more?) years, traveling from D.C. for many of them, and now from Maine. It wouldn't be fall for me without participating in that wonderful Connecticut festival. One of my few opportunities every year to see (and hear) Jerry & Ruth & the Messengers, the Patons, the Beans, the 'chucks, bbc, and lots of other folks of whom I'm very fond.
