Subject: RE: Getaway Memories 2006
I say Three Cheers for the Getaway Committee, for pulling off such a major change with so little confusion by being bigger than life and juggling madly. I wondered last year how Charlie, for example, manages to do it, but this year I found out his secret. It's not software. He keeps his pockets stuffed with little slips of paper constituting his filing system, and shuffles them like a card sharp at regul'r intervals. Sometimes the most brilliant solution is also the most straightforward and simple.
I saw nothing to kvetch about except the one confusion about the quiet rooms, and as far as I have been able to track it, it was primarily one person's widely distributed and vociferous concerns that escalated it into a major issue. All it needs, I would say, is a pre-determined policy about where the all nighters may lark about, widely communicated.
You guys are the heros of the Getaway and I am really grateful you make it happen. Thanks again.
Barry, thanks -- I thought I knew the difference between Boston and Boothbay, as far as accents went.
