Jeri! So that was YOU farting in the bathroom!
Just kidding...I was billeted in "The Pines", and it would have taken a nuclear blast to reach my ears.
Ya know, this is interesting, but it strikes me a bit like the constant "let's fix" Mudcat thing. Believe me, the dynamics at Ramblewood were FAR superior to any similar event I've participated in over 32 years. There seemed to be absolutely no VISIBLE hierarchy, and that amazed me. I never once got the feeling that the folks in charge (which ALWAYS means the ones who've volunteered hundreds of hours in preparation) weren't having as much agenda-free fun as everyone else...and that's rare.
It still may be difficult for shyer folk to jump in, but having "been there", I'll bet that many of the more extroverted musicers once WERE shy. It takes time and encouragement, and I saw great gobs of that at the Getaway.
Still smiling from the experience.
