Conflict with the Getaway has been cited a couple of times. For the last two years we have regretted the conflict, but the November date was the only time the camp was available for the Getaway. For 2008, finally, we have been able to move back to October, which we have wanted to do for a number of reasons, that conflict being just one. So. This year's Getaway will be October 3-5, at West River Center on the Chesapeake Bay, south of Annapolis.
I'm willing to bet the conflicting dates were not the main reason for NOMAD's cancellation, however. It's pretty hard to put on a volunteer-run event when you can't find volunteers -- that I know from experience. I sure hope NOMAD's friends will find a way to revive that gathering. Meanwhile, maybe we'll see some of you at the Getaway in October!
