The time is drawing near! I'm a relative newcomer, having attended my first Getaway in 2002, and I missed it last year, but gawd willin' and the hospital will let me off, I'll be there this year.

Who's coming?!!!! (and if there is already a more appropriate thread, please delete this and refresh the other - I may not have searched under the right terms.)

I see a program planning thread, a getting-to-the-Getaway thread, and a mongol-post-from-Getaway-to-Canada thread, but no generic thread. So I guess this is it!

Sheryl and I will be there.

It's amusing to think that some of the 'Catters would probably consider me an established regular, even though I've only been attending since 1996.

Hope there are lots of newcomers each year, and that the age of newcomers gets younger and younger every year!

I confess to some conflicted emotions. My son -not a folkie but open to folk within his eclectic musical tastes - actually wants to come and I am willing to spring for his fee - but if he can come it means he has not yet found a steady job!

We are indeed trying to encourage people to bring kids and grandkids, but it's tough. Both the economics of it and the demographics make it difficult. And of course there's a programming catch-22 as well: we want kids to come, so we're trying to plan some activities for them, but we don't know if any will come, so...   Janie, if your son is looking for a job, it sounds like he's a "young adult" rather than a kid. He's welcome too! Hope people will let us know early on who's coming!

The program planning is proceeding apace, and we have some fun stuff planned. We'll get it all put together in the next few weeks, and will let you know when the schedule is up.

Y'all come!

Nancy

P.S. I've been to every Getaway since 1974! I think maybe Bob Clayton is the only one who's been to more.

We DO appreciate those who manage to make it... even if not every year.. from far away. (The Left Coast of the US is quite a trek, but several from there are close to getting their "regular" merit badge. And New England already has several merit badge holders.)

Iceland, Guam, Oz, England, Israel...etc... have made it quite an event. We will miss everyone who can't manage this year.

I have 'only' been coming since 1978, but 34 consecutive years ain't bad! (Oh, that tedious, wearing, hour-long drive..... ;>)

Well, I am looking forward to another visit to the Enchanted Island with 'bated breath. Not too 'bated, of course, since it is still a month and more distant.

Nancy delightfully asked me to do a half-hour shtick somewhere in the weekend, and I am open to suggestions as to what would best delight, short of declining :D.

I'll start now mentioning the silent auction early and often. Bring something to contribute to the auction, and please check out the auction offerings and make a bid on something you might use or want. Doesn't have to be music related at all - but please, do not bring stuff to the auction that most reasonable people would agree is best tossed in the trash. Bizarre, tacky, "outdated", hidiobilia, tarnished, dusty, broken but repairable, etc. are fine and welcomed. But please, no soiled or stained cloth items, including stuffed animals, and no items absolutely festooned with dust bunnies or mold intermingled with mouse droppings, please. Just use a little common sense. If you have put out a cd or book and want to donate a copy or three to the auction, these items nearly always do well.

The location of the auction at West River is not prime, and many people either don't realize the auction is there or easily forget about it, and there is not a pa system that allows for reminder announcements at meals, so please try to keep it on your internal radar screen. Even for folks traveling some distance on airplanes there is likely some small item you could contribute or some small item you could bid on that you can transport, to, from, or both. If you really can not bring something and find nothing at all of interest to bid on, consider making a small donation to the scholarship fund. Haven't checked with the FSGW folks on this, but expect you can make a donation through the auction, even if you don't make a bid on anything.

Proceeds from the auction go toward the Getaway scholarship fund. In leaner days I have myself benefited from the scholarship fund, and these days there are many people living through lean times who would not be able to attend without some financial help.

Edmund and I are coming, barring international incidents and unignorable mandates to keep calm and remain at our desks. We have been booked to contribute to a workshop of songs about Napoleon and similarly famous historic figures, so we are also engaged in learning something new ... in six weeks flat!

Just got back from the Goderich Celtic Roots Festival, so Getaway is still a bit foggy in the forecast.
