Far smaller, less ornate organizations than FSGW (not to mention individuals) run weekends similar to the Getaway. You don't need all of the FSGW complexity to do it--the FSGW has evolved over DECADES. Don't try to replicate the organization with all its bureaucracy. Just invite anyone to campout at your place. Actually, Dick Hamlet, who is a long-time Getaway attendee who now lives in Oregon, and I were discussing the camping faciliites at this year's Getaway, and he said that the Pacific Northwest is loaded with kids camps that are VERY cheap to rent off-season. Or just have everyone camp in your back yard and pot-luck in your kitchen. Think small, but DO IT!
