Subject: FSGW Getaway-October 1999
From: Charlie Baum
Date: 20 Jun 99 - 01:06 AM

The FSGW Getaway weekend will be held on October 8-11, 1999 at Prince William Forest National Park, near Dumfries, Virginia, about 30 miles South of Washington, D.C., just a few miles off of Interstate 95. The venue is NOT where we had it last year. This year's site is the original site of the Getaway, decades ago--a set of scenic camping cabins built in the 1930s by the CCC set in some lovely woods, which should be in early-to-mid-peak fall color that weekend. (Bert and Max--it IS the same place you went to this past May). Food will be catered by Debbie McClatchy (if you only know her as a banjo player and singer, you haven't fully experienced her real talents!) It's still too early for most details, but they'll get posted at the FSGW website (www.fsgw.org) as soon as they're available, along with downloadable registration forms. And this thread will be updated (or a similar new thread begun). But mark the weekend on your calendars now!

Lots of mudcatters are regulars at the Getaway: Charlie Baum, Ferrara, Bill D, Bruce O, LaMarca are all members of FSGW. Susan of DT and Dick Greenhaus are always there. Several others have been there in the last few years, and a batch of Mudcatters planned to come last year but couldn't make it at the last minute. (The Digital Tradition was born at a Getaway a few years ago!) A chance to make music and socialize together, conveniently located to most of the East Coast. Hope to see many of you there.

I wandered into Wash DC in 1977, and in '78, went to the Getaway, just to see what they were all raving about..haven't missed it since. It is different than it used to be..(the average age has gone up..*grin*)..but always nice....music till all hours..(well 'some' hours for the wimps)...fire in the fireplace...walks in the woods, places for kids to run..Debbie's food..(with help from US)...there are 'planned' workshops with topics, make-your-own workshops...and just pickin' under a tree or on a porch...you never know, but you are seldom disappointed...

(and..it should be cheaper than last year!!)

Annap-- Logistics: everyone gets to stay in rustic (unheated) 1930s log cabins built by the Civilian Conservation Corps. There are beds with foam mattresses. Bathrooms with flush plumbing and hot showers are nearby, though often in another building. Food is deliciously catered in the Dining Hall by Debbie McClatchy. You'll volunteer about 2 hours in the kitchen during the course of the weekend (bring a vegetable-chopping shanty). If the cabins sound too rustic, there's a Super-8 motel about 5 miles down the road near the exit from I-95 (we've arranged for group discount rates). Iamgine a great summer camp with fall foliage... Specific details by mid-July.

Dear Charlie,

That sounds so wonderful. We wouldn't miss the log cabins, and cooking is one of my most favorite things. Even if it's only making salads or peeling taters, or sweeping the floor... My, for the first time in a very long while, I can't wait til fall. I never thought I'd hear myself say THAT! I am definitely a warm weather person. I'll be looking for the details.

Thank you. annap

Susan-Marie--there are always LOTS of kids, including several near-in-age to yours. More than a playground--we've got acres (and acres) of woodlands your child can safely roam around in, without worry about cars, and a few adults who are always organizing treasure hunts and other activities for the children. Definitely a child-friendly atmosphere!

Susan-Marie, there are always plenty of kids, but it is a forest and you have to be sure someone is keeping an eye on the little ones. We have at least one mom who usually brings craft supplies and ideas, bless her heart. Also if there are enough kids coming, we'll set up a kids' music workshop or two. There are interactive games led by one father, aided by several teen-agers who are veterans of it all, and he holds different sessions for the various age groups.

Everyone, you would do well to bring a warm sleeping bag. I'm also planning on bringing a heating pad or electric blanket if I can (there's electricity in most or all of the cabins.)

Can anyone bring up last fall's threads, including the very nice post-Getaway thread that Roger et al posted? I can't do a forum search any more, sorry.
one thread
and another

I'm going to be the program chair again this year (for my sins) and would love to set up a half-hour or longer Mudcat mini-concert, with each of the out-of-town Mudcat attendees doing a couple of songs. Also, anyone with ideas for a workshop can contact me, especially if you're volunteering to lead it. I can't guarantee we'll have room for everything, but I want to start planning now.

Also, we have Saturday and Sunday night sign-up concerts, (one song and one appearance per person) as well as the daytime workshops and the late-night singing. We try to reserve the Saturday concert for out-of-town people who will have to head for home before the concert starts on Sunday.

There are usually two, three or four sets of workshops, mini-concerts and sing-arounds going during the day. Some favorites are the 2-hour Gospel sing-around on Sunday, drinking songs, sea songs, country & western jam, and a variety of other topical workshops as well as the eternal parking-lot picking which is often done in the center of the various cabin areas, with the fall foliage all around. There's a pond, a stream and small waterfall (It's the "Camp Pleasant" site again, right, Charlie?), lots of trails.

End of commercial for tonight. We love it, hope some of you will too. - Rita F

Bill D & Ferrara--we've got the same site some of us were at for Carly's party this May!

Susan-Marie--we've got several nurses who usually come. We've also got Alice Bailes (not sure if she still uses that last name), who is quite involved in the local folk music community, who sometimes comes to the Getaway, and who IS a midwife. Of course, since notice hasn't gone out yet to FSGW members, no one has yet responded, so I can't say with any certainty she's planning on coming.

Lloyd--there might be room to park an RV at our Camp, but it won't be in a place with electricity. Or you can have a cabin space, with electricity. Or check out the Travel Trailer Village at Prince William Forest National Park (an old name, and I don't know what the facility is like, but you might find information is you linked there through the Prince William Forest Park website: www.nps.gov/prwi
The Travel Trailer Village is about 1 mile from the festivities. It's out near the state highway, just at the turn-off onto the gravel road that leads into the park and dead-ends one mile down at our camp.

Actually, from that website, I quote:

Travel Trailer Village is a private, concessionaire operated full-service recreational vehicle campground located on the north side of the park. Information and reservations can be obtained by calling 703/221-2474.

Hope this info helps.

Dunno, Mick. I think you may win on this one. Alison seems to be inordinately impressed by singers of songs. I know lots of songs, but if they aren't campfire songs, I know only the first verse and end up getting out my reading glasses to peer at the fine print in the hated Blue Bible (Rise Up Singing). My Steve Martin lookalike good looks and stunning vocal ability and charming personality (and remarkable humility) may not be enough. I can't remember the lyrics without a book, and I can't play an instrument.

Moonchild will definitely be in attendance this year and Dumfries is actually quite a bit closer than Edgewater MD by way of Tallahassee. Had to miss last year due to my grandmother's passing and felt I had missed something special. But, as a believer that all things happen for a reason ... Bill D. and Ferrara: Please forgive me for not getting in touch which I was in the D.C. area ... received traumatic scare just after I arrived in D.C. which resulted in an even more traumatic breast cancer scare, so I returned home early. All is okay, but it was like having mortality slap me in the face and knowing life would never again be as it was. But, if the good lord's willin' and the creek don't rise, I will be there this October, with calused fingers and a song in my heart. moonchild

Hey, when are the details and application for the Getaway going to be ready? I just bought my airline tickets because the fares are so cheap, what with airlines matching prices from Southwest Airlines. I got a round-trip from Sacramento to Baltimore for $218.10. I hope the Powers That Be at the Getaway will have pity on me and make sure I get a reservation. I don't know how long these airline sale prices will last. I'm arriving in Baltimore Thursday, October 7. Anybody who wants to ride with me from Baltimore is welcome. We can figure out lodging somewhere between Baltimore and Virginia - 'tain't far.

Hey, why don't all of you who are sitting on the fence about this try to get airline tickets right now at the cheap rates? (I believe the sale is only for cities served by Southwest Airlines.) If for some reason we can't get into the Getaway, we can have our own Mudcat gathering - but I suspect we should be able to get into the Getaway.
Looks like the closest airport to the Getaway that Southwest serves is Baltimore. Click here to get to the Southwest reservations page to see what cities the airline serves. You may be able to get a matching fare at other airlines, like I did with United. The fare is $198 round-trip, plus tax, anywhere served by Southwest, for flights between August 16 and December 6 - tickets have to be purchased by July 28. such a deal!

It will take a few more days before I have final information available for post on the www.fsgw.org site. I've got to prepare the hardcopy version first (for the FSGW newsletter, which goes to the printer later this week). As soon as that's done, I'll prepare a version for the web site. So expect materials in a week or so, G-d willing and the creek don't rise and the electric don't fail.

Cabin space will be plentiful. Not to worry.

As of now, the rates for the entire weekend (Friday afternoon through Monday morning) are $95/$85 for adults and $50/$40 for children 4 through 11 years old. (The second figure is for members of the Folklore Society of Greater Washington, and if you want the member discount, along with all the other advantages of membership, there will be a link on the registration to a membership form as well.) The rates for Friday through Sunday evening (as late as you care to jam) are $90/$80 for adults and $45/$35 for children 4 to 11. All children 3 and younger are free.

Rates include use of the park, cabin bed space, and food by Debby McClatchy, caterer extraordinaire: breakfast, lunch, dinner, and midnight snack for Saturday and Sunday. The all-weekend rate also includes Sunday overnight cabin space and breakfast on Monday. Friday dinner will be a potluck.

There will also be a rate for "daytrippers" (includes lunch and dinner ONLY) at $35/$30/day for adults and $20/$15 for children 4-11. And even cheaper rates for those who don't want to eat with us.

For those wishing to bring an RV, if you just park it in the parking lot, the costs are the same as for campers with bedspace. If you need plug ins, there's an RV Camper village one mile away, at the entrance to the gravel road that leads to the camp. You'll have to check with them for additional costs.

For those who wish more luxurious accommodations, rooms will be available at a nearby budget motel (5 miles away) for $48/night/room.

Hope you're all willing to work: we ask everyone to put in a couple of hours doing things, primarily in the kitchen: food stowage, preparation, chopping, cooking, serving, clean-up, etc. The kitchen is adjacent to the dining room where a lot of the music/jamming goes on, so you won't feel isolated even while you're working. In fact, the group singing in the kitchen is some of the best music. (Anyone have a vegetable chopping shanty?)

So--I'm off to do the hardcopy thing; I'll post in this thread when the web-version is up and running.

Joe ... thanks for the Southwest link ... I checked fares from Jacksonville (FL) to BWI and the promo fair, which is limited and requires 21-day advance purchase is $145. Not too shabby? Most likely I would rent a car and stay with friends in Fairfax County for some of the time, but would probably stay encamp Saturday night.

Great rates, and never fear, Sir Charles, I am fearless in the kitchen. Whatever needs to be done, from cooking to cleaning, Aul Mick is there. Now, if I can just get the Fair Alison there, it would be perfect. ***Grin&***

I can't tell you how excited I an about the upcoming Getaway. A whole weekend full of music and friends. It doesn't get much better than this. I'm especially looking forward to seeing my out-of-town friends who I only get to see once or twice a year.

Charlie, thanks for all your work to make it happen and thanks also for posting the early notice.

Pauline

Okay--the webpage is UP!

Click here: The Folklore Society of Greater Washington (FSGW) Getaway to get complete information about the Getaway. You can also retrieve a printable registration form in either html or pdf format. But since the FSGW doesn;t accept credit cards, you'll have to snail-mail the form back to the address printed on it.

Looking forward to seeing many of you in October in Virginia, about 30 miles South of "Our Nation's Capital."

--Charlie Baum

I sent my check off today. Charlie, do you think that, as a non-member, I'll have any trouble getting a reservation?

Bill D--The FSGW Webmaster (Dennis Cook) has been notified by e-mail.

Joe Offer--I don't THINK there will a problem with non-FSGW members getting into the Getaway. The note is to encourage FSGW members ot respond in a timely fashion. Of course, if you want to be rock-solid sure, you could alway join the FSGW.

Thank you Charlie. Glenn and I swill definitely be coming and we would like to stay in a cabin. We will be becoming members of FSGW. I do have a question though. Will all mudcatters be in the same cabins? That would be great.

Seeya in October, guys.

nawww...no one would DARE put all Mudcatters together..*grin*...no one would get any sleep!..

but..I suspect certain arrangements can be made..(people used to ask for bunks together, and it generally worked out)

'most' cabins are a three room deal, with a small room in the center that has 2 beds, and large rooms on each end with 4 beds in each room. there are also some other strange buildings with different arrangements, but too hard to explain here...cabins are also varying distances from 'home' (i.e., dining hall)..so those who wish quiet generally are further out..do bring your flashlights!

Wish we could be there, but we're doing a 5-day gig at the Museum of Appalachia during that time. Maybe next year.

I'll be there this year. If the rest of the family's coming we'll fly if not I'll coming over the road singing "I can drive my rig all night, there ain't been a cop in sight, 3 nights with you all it's gonna be my heart's delight" (sounds like I took it from '6 days On the Road'). Anyone know the ETA from Boston to DC. Last time I drove that way I made it to Nashville in one long spurt but that was near 20 yrs ago & I'm not that youg anymore, maybe I'll just fly reguardless

Joe, I hope you'll be learning some of those shanties, I'll be looking to be backing you up one thing or another.

Barry
