Well folks I'm sorry to say I have to go in for my other new hip in November, and I can't do the Getaway and that too.
As it gives me a great deal of pain and discomfort I must get it done as soon as possible.
Sorry to miss all you guys, but hopefully next year.

Best wishes for your outfitting as the New Bionic Man, Giok! I didn't know Skarpi and others have also had to bow out for this year. I probably will not make it, as previously thought,too, unless we make a certain sale in time. I figure that's alright, though. Those who go this year can suss out all the *wrinkles* at the new camp and have them all ironed out in time for us at next year's!

I have to add myself to this year's list of deserters. I had a lot of fun last year, especially with the sea music workshops. However, I do have to spend some time reinforcing a couple of legislative campaigns in my area, and Election Day is the following Tuesday. The Legislature is almost evenly divided this year and our district is always a battleground.

Next year for sure!

So don't trash the place completely!

Besides, the reason we come to the Getaway is to get AWAY from the artifices of Western civ...except for the good ones like cigars and good "fruit juice"...

Charlie, we'll miss ya. Give 'em hell. Kat, just get busy and sell what needs to be sold, ya know what I mean. I am sure you'll be able to save up enough between now and then... :D

I'll be there with or without the Captain. Now I have to go break this to the poor demented little lamb in my dining room. Another heart broken, Giok.

But better you get yourself healthy for next year.

Them as are in New England or NY and can't go that far, keep NOMAD in mind as an alternative.

It's considerably more urban, but you can get to it.

"(spoken)
Maria . . .
(sings)
The most beautiful sound I ever heard:
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .
All the beautiful sounds of the world in a single word . .
Maria, Maria, Maria, Maria . . .
Maria!
I've just met a girl named Maria,
And suddenly that name
Will never be the same
To me.
Maria!
I've just kissed a girl named Maria,
And suddenly I've found
How wonderful a sound
Can be!
Maria!
Say it loud and there's music playing,
Say it soft and it's almost like praying.

Maria,
I'll never stop saying Maria!

The most beautiful sound I ever heard.
Maria.

Are you calling me a FLY?! I've dropped like a lot of things, but I always thought I dropped more gracefully than a swatted insect!!

I am, reluctantly, signing in as mostly-likely-not-to-be-there this year.

There is a slim chance, but work and life realities are interfering. If I do come, it'll be a last minute squeaker.

That said, I have a FABULOUS idea for a concert set-piece and some of you should expect to hear from me about it ; )

(Perhaps I can at least convince her that she really doesn't want to be responsible for loosing me on the Getaway unsupervised:>)

Sister Annie is planning on coming also, but has got to find another engineer to go evaluate the envirnmental impact of the "Pumkin Chunkin'" in Delaware first.

I ain't worried about the skipper cuz Mary m'love, and the formidable jacqui will take care of his wrinkled old arse.

Giok gets a bye due to the operation, skarpi too, given the house, but that is it. The rest of y'all get about the business of making the necessary arrangements.

.... at least fir now, I'm leanin' heavily toward doin' just that.... Yeah, me and the P-Vine for 3 'er 4 days with no TV, no noise, no telephone, no electricity...

OK, tell Annie she **HAS** to come now! 'Cuz there's a certain other engineer who lurks around the Getaway that's curious about these environmental evaluations of the "Pumkin Chunkin" contest! 8-)

I actually recently read a book that was mostly about the Burning Man festival but also mentioned the "Pumkin Chunkin" too.

For the people whose main obstacle is financial: Thanks in large part to the efforts of many Mudcatters, the Getaway scholarship fund is in great shape. Help with the cost of the Getaway might make a difference for some of the folks who feel they can't come, especially if you would have massive travel expenses on top of the Getaway cost.

We need you! And we'll miss you if you miss the Getaway!

PM me, Charlie, Nancy King or Carly if you think a full or partial scholarship could make the difference. They are given based on need, but also on the contribution the applicant will make to the Getaway. Travel expenses are a legitimate factor in determining need! We have a tentative list of local people who may need a full or partial scholarship so we have some idea of the demand on the fund. We can give you an approximate answer fairly early.

I'm personally rather worried, especially after reading Bobert's post. There has never before been a thread of "I don't plan to go to the Getaway" announcements. People may not come, but they just state it somewhere in the main Getaway threads, where you can also see who is coming and look forward to the fun. This is a discouraging thread! Both to people who are debating whether to come, and to the Getaway volunteers who are working hard to keep the Getaway a living program and a going concern.

Perception is everything. How do people perceive the Getaway?

I agree with Ferrara - last year's Getaway was so marvelous, and this year it's almost like there's some kind of Getaway boycott underway.   Why? I don't know if it has to do with the fact that the camp is alcohol free this year. That will not deter me, I come for the music and the companionship and am not bothered about having alcohol or not. I wouldn't have thought it was that much of a factor in the equation. The cameraderie at last year's Getaway was phenomenal, and I don't think it was entirely or even mostly due to the fact that alcohol was available. I feel very bad for the folks at FSGW who have worked hard to find a place to accomodate everyone, even those who have trouble getting around, which has comfortable accomodations, and is still affordable, and on top of that they are offering scholarships to people who can't manage on their own.

Rita,

I agree. I wonder if this thread might be combined with the Getaway thread, or closed and people directed to that thread? Joe?

I think we need to remember the Getaway is an FSGW event with a long and wonderful history. Because of some overlap in membership, we 'Catter's have been priviledged to be invited to join in the weekend over the past several years, and those of us who have been fortunate to be able to attend have found our lives and our music much richer for the experience.

Perception of Getaway? An absolutely magical, musical, restorative weekend Getaway! It has truly become the most looked-forward to event in my year. Singing, sharing, listening, learning, musically empowering, fellowship, fellowship, fellowship! And I am actually an introvert and more than a little socially awkward.

Let me just say here and now, that I would love to be able to go, and not to be fighting the airline [Icelandair] for the refund of the money I paid for the fares.
I had this cunning plan consisting of hikers/cyclists aluminium bottles to get round the drink problem, so no sweat there, separating a Scotsman like myself from his drink is a man's job, not a church mouse's!
I would hate to feel that I played any part in discouraging anybody else from going by inserting a note of negativity.
I would also like to think that a lovely lady like KT wasn't going because without me she'd be sad.
Neither are true folks, so go to the Getaway and enjoy yourselves, and raise a 'non see through' glass to.
"Absent friends"
One of them at least will be in Scotland wishing he could be there!

Maryrrf, my reasons for not attending this year have absoltuely NOTHING to do with boycott or beverage. The GETAWAY is a phenomenal experience and to anyone who hasn't been and is considering it, I say, GO!!! You will have a wonderful time with wonderful people, (which is why I said somewhere back there, I will look forward to all of the wild and wonderful post-Getaway tales.   From what I read above, it's those who have enjoyed themselves immensely at GETAWAYS past, who are writing to say, sadly, that they will miss this one.

I hate this, seeing all the names of people I missed meeting last year, and now they're not coming this year. Serves me right for missing it last year, I guess.
But I DO get to meet Anglo. My last chance to meet him was at the Festival of the Sea in San Francisco. I was driving there, but turned around when I hit a huge rainstorm and couldn't see to drive - and yet the storm missed San Francisco.

Folks, please make every attempt to go to this Getaway. It is our first year in a new location, has heat and comfy beds, and promises to be a very good time. Getaway is, quite simply, Shangra La for folkies and especially Mudcatters. We have some notable absences, but as you can plainly see, they are very regretful not to be there. This is a must do event, if you can make it.

All the best,

Mick

Ummmm, let my make a little more of a clarification... The P-Vine and I have been goin' balls to the wall since movin' outside Luray a little overa year ago... Yeah, I stole away for last years Getaway leavin' a lot on the P-Vine... We talked about it and agreed that this year we'd try to "get away" together somewhere's but we're still going balls to the wall and will be until the first hard killer frost, whenever that occurs...

yeah, I prolly could have made it this year but it would have 'caused a strain between me and my lady... There will come a time when things will turn around and I'll have more time...

Like I said above, I had allready been going thru some soul searchin' and then a bunch of folks who I really enjoy being with pulled out... This ain't no danged slam book here but I've made no secret how I feel 'bout some folks and, hey, yeah, had I decided to come it would be mostly to see them... This ain't about nobody else 'cause I Loves everyone here and, sniff, eyah... I'm gonna miss seein Jacqui and Rita and CarolC and Amos an', an'....

Next year will be different...

Sniff...
