This will be the official thread. The other is full of maybes.

So it will October 7-9 at Camp Morehead in Nahcotta Washington on Long Beach Peninsula, Washington State USA. It has been held in this small camp most years. NOTE BENE: It is not anywhere near Ocean Shores.

The camp is very rustic and the facility is showing its age, but the natural setting is truly beautiful..right next to the oystering activities. It is about 2 miles from the ocean, and right on Willapa Bay. A lot of the trees had to be cut due to wind damage so it is a bit more bare than before.

It is a small facility, with a main lodge with kitchen, 5 cabins plus one small cabin for anyone with special needs, a bathroom building with a side for men and one for women (you have to spell that out these days because dire predictions have come true about coed bathrooms). There are a couple of other buildings, a ping-pong/rec building and I think a boat building that will be reserved for blue book preferees and instrumentalists.

Cost is $55 for the weekend, Friday through Sunday and includes meals. Friday will be a potluck. The other meals we will rustle up ourselves and clean up after. There will be a professional cleaner at the end of camp so we don't have to stay and clean (thank heavens). We can prorate any number of ways so feel free to come for part of the camp or sleep in a motel next door ($60/night).

The emphasis will be on people who like group singing, without books. THere will be accomodations for people who like singing with books, but especially at night the main lodge will be bookless, except for your personal use. We will keep the recreation/ping pong room reserved for people who like books, but unfortunately it is not heated except for little space heaters..but if the weather is good it should be OK. The facility just does not lend itself to these two different preferred styles, but we will do the best we can with what we have, which is a little 4-H camp.

You can call me at 360-642-8049 for more info or to register. Or you can PM me here or email me at mgxxxxxx@yahoo.com (6 x's.)

It has been a lot of fun in the past, with good food, good singing..modest accomodations. mg

mg, do the cabins have any room in them for a small circle of chairs (folding chairs, camp chairs, folding canvas chairs) to be set up for smaller groups?   Lots of people could probably bring a chair or two with them if it would make small group sing-alongs or workshops possible. The old site really didn't have any room for people to set up even a small circle.

They do..it is the same site unless you were there one year when we were at a larger camp nearer the ocean. We will have to use one or two cabins for workshops during the day. I was there yesterday and main lodge looks OK. Kitchen looks OK..good pizza oven but otherwise is still awaiting remodeling. I need to get into the other buildings...one with ping pong table is OK for workshops and I will bring a space heater for it..one reason I insisted on early October is weather could be warm still..I think there is yet another building..in fact two...one seems to have boats in it (can't use them though because of grave danger...there is a river that runs through the bay right into the ocean and sweeps people away....so can only have very experienced boat leaders)...

We will have an ongoing fire in the lodge and can have a fire in the firepit outdoors...

Good idea to bring a folding chair anyway..there are benches and chairs stored in on of the buildings but I need to do some more checking.

if the description scares anyone, there is a nice, old-fashioned motel almost next door (not right next door but a couple of properties away I found out). $60 a night for a room with queen, run by a nice couple who are oyster farmers. The camp is not in awful shape so don't be scared but don't come for the grand accomodations either. mg

I think the workshops are starting to develop. Probably a sea shanty/maritime one, probably one of Pacific Northwest songs, probably one for hospice-type situations.

The loss of trees at the camp makes it look scraggly. I am thinking I could talk to a horticulturist and see if people could bring a tree to plant that was appropriate for the area and use. mg

mg, if you can send me a PDF flyer with all the relevant info on it, I can email it to the PDF membership. Also there's a Linda Allen/Frankie Armstrong PFS concert on August 23, and we can probably get some flyers printed to put them on the tables for people to pick up.

I think if you email a flyer like that to Bruce Baker, he can probably also send it to the SFS members and make it available to people at the SFS song circles over the next few weeks.

Well I'll be darned if I can find a previous thread for this year.

Anyway, I made a very pitiful web site

http://sunnycamp2011a.webs.com/

http://sunnycamp2011a.webs.com/


Hopefully it will improve but it at least says where it is and how much etc. You have to put the 2011a in there..there is another one I started that is just 2011 but I can't get into it for some reason.

Anyway, time to be thinking about it..October 7 through 9 in Nahcotta Washington on Long Beach Peninsula..just in time for cranberry harvest. mg

Thanks...it looks like it is going to be a small group, which is fine for the location. Hope people decide to come...weather should still be good, although you never know. If I have scared you off because of the plain accomodations, there is a nice motel almost next door. We never know until the last minute who is going to come..they are notorious for that..but since I am that way myself going to camps, I let it slide...so there should be lots of room up to the last minute.

Cost is only $55 for weekend. I have to update the prorated bits because I did not count in the cost of firewood for those who come for the day..

But if you can't afford some of the pricier camps, come to this one..fun but totally casual. If you bring a carload of people with you, I will give one free "campership" to driver or designee (3 people extra). mg

Tis you tis you I hope. Lots of maybe people and they are truly great. Some of my personal favorite people. I can guarantee we will sing without the brakes on...but I am reluctant to name names...but I can guarantee that we will have fun...

If you prefer the blue book method, there will be opportunities for you during the day, and a building set aside for evening singing, but the late evening session will be done from the heart, with your personal reference books or papers if you need them....but no turn to page whatever..and at some point ditch the turn-taking.

I will say that we are developing a sort of maritime theme, with workshops on women at sea, maritime songs and a sea shanty set. We will also have an Australian song workshop, plus I might do an October song workshop, plus a local person will do Hawaaian and a great songwriter from the San Juan Islands will do a Pacific Northwest song workshop...I am hoping some of the locals will come..there are absolutely great people in Astoria and Cathlamet etc..but they tend to not come. In fact, they don't come. But I am going to make them this year.

If anyone can't afford the Getaway, come down to Sunnycamp..bottom SW corner of WA state..only $55 for the weekend. Modest accomodations but great scenery and music and I think the food has always been good. mg

Feel free to call me at 360-642-8049 until 11 p.m. Pacific Time or email me at maryogarvey@yahoo.com. There is a very humble web site at http://www.sunnycamp2011a@webs.com I think. I will check it out. you have to put the 2011a in because if you just put 2011 in it will take you to a site I started but can't get back into so it is less complete.

Now, for how to get there...you must have a map and it is best to come in daylight as there are a couple of confusing points...the simplest way is to get yourself somehow to Astoria, or right where the bridge is on the Washington side. If you are in Oregon, cross the bridge, turn left, go to Ilwaco, through stoplight..pointing north. Do not go up the hill. Go through Seaview and Long Beach lights. Go about 10 more miles to Ocean Park (NO NO NO DO NOT TRANSLATE THAT TO OCEAN SHORES). Turn right at the light at Jack's Country Store (There are only 4 lights on Peninsula). Go till road ends in a T. Turn left on Sandridge (there are only 2 roads going north and south on peninsula and both are OK). Go about a mile until you see the Port of Peninsula on your right. There is one house past it and then Camp MOrehead where camp is. There should be some sort of lights where you turn in the evening. If you make ti to Harborview Motel you have come a bit too far so backtrack.

Hope you can make it. We have lots of room. It will probably be a smallish group. And don't be intimidated by emphasis on non-blue books. You will be more than welcome, and you will have opportunities to sing with blue books druing the day..it is just the late night singing that we ahve to choose which way to go and this is what we have chosen. mg

Mary ... I'm absoulutly DELIGHTED to learn that there will be an emphisis on "non blue book" singing. It's sorely needed. Singing from the "heart", as you say, is what brings out the real folk music. And getting away from the dominate "round robin" pattern also allows more spontanaity. (sp?). Often a "Barbra Allen" will bring forth several more versions, or a good discussion of the ballad.

I really wish we could be there but I have to do a concert that day up North. I will be there in spirit tho. Are you coming to Rainy Camp this year? bob(deckman)nelson

I'm not tied to the blue book, nor do I really even like it as a tool for group singing, because it's not formatted u a song sheet where you can glance at it quickly for reference when needed.   But I do think that song sheets - big print - can be very helpful when you want group participation in a song that most people don't know, especially if the song doesn't have a chorus or repeated lines.   I do really enjoy harmonies and other musical things that require 2 or more people singing. So I'm glad song sheets are not taboo.

I also have no quarrel with "chaos mode" instead of taking turns in a circle, except when a few people jump in so often with songs that it's hard for others to get a chance to perform or lead theirs.   

It sounds like this should be a very good camp even if the numbers are small.

Genie ... There's a new techinique that some folks are beginning to use at hoots to counter those occassional singers who "dominate". We all carry a small pair of wire cutters. Usually just setting them on a table, in plain sight, is enough warning. But I have seen them used to cut the strings off the offenders guitar. IT's quite effective. bob(deckman)nelson

Here on the East Coast, some multiple-day weekend events often start with once 'round the circle on Friday night, and it's free-form after that. We also have a few song circles which don't necessarily proceed in a circular fashion, but the participants DO keep track of who has or hasn't sung yet, and shy singers are coaxed to offer a song, and dominating ones are given cues (subtle if possible, or not subtle as necessary) to hold back.

the circle game was the first song i learned on the guitar...it is a
tried and true method for singing groups, too.

One singers circle that i know of (Reno, Nevada area) sends out a list
of songs for people to have ready for the next gathering. I think they do base it on blue book (pages etc) when i hosted open mike sessions i liked to pick a theme...such as celtic for March (St. Pat's) etc.

I do have good memories of thesunny camp i attended...and hope you all
have a great time.

I will post a separate thing on this but Camp Alexandra handled it very well I think..now they have the advantage of having several nice rooms where people can find something to their liking..and Sunnycamp is very restricted as to space, especially space that can be heated..which is why I have been so honest about our preferences and people can join us or not as they choose...anyway, they just told people that people have different preferences and if you find a group doing stuff in a certain way, leave them to it. Join them if you are OK doing it that way, but do not break into their group and insist on doing it your way, which is what has happened almost everywhere I have been...and I am talking about groups that have distanced themselves from the main song circle area. They also had people sign up for certain rooms..like there is a group up there that likes unacommpanied singing..they could have..but didn't this time..sign up for a group. I signed up for a chaos group..no turns. Another person signed up for a traidtional song circle where you could use books etc. What has been missing for so many years is just direct honesty..that there are different preferences..major big preferences...big enough that people will quit coming to certain events..and it is very easy to solve in a camp with several rooms to sort people out in (again, we do not have that luxury in Sunnycamp). mg

Coming up soon.

There are several people in Seattle and Port Townsend who would love rides...this is the hardest part of putting on a camp and next year I think I will arrange somehow for a van to drive down.

It is going to be a small group this year, but mighty...don't let any discussion of blue books versus not keep you from coming...you will be quite welcome..it is just that we can not do the blue book thing late at night..it does not work for us period..and the only room I can offer is basically unheated except for a little space heater..it is like a cold garage..so that is why I keep emphasizing the no blue books..if I could arrange a nice alternate space I would but I can't and those of us who are coming prefer the no book style. But there will be infinite opporutnities during the day for those who want to sing out of books. We can reserve one of the cabins for it.

I dragged the food over today with the help of a young man I hired..boy do I suggest hiring help and not depending on chore lists and volunteers etc...it is the last final cleanup that just kills you when you just want to hit the road and go to bed..but we will have cooking and dishwashing chores for sure..but with a small group cooking is fun..and people can always go into the kitchen, rummage around, and eat when and what they want as long as they clean up. Looks like I found a nice Willapa Bay Chinook?? salmon..it is probably being caught tomorrow...should still be fresh or we can freeze it..

SO PLEASE COME AND HELP ME WITH THE RIDE SITUATION..YOU DON'T HAVE TO LIKE MUSIC..PEOPLE COME HERE ALL THE TIME FOR THE GO-CARTS AND WALKS ON THE BEACH AND SUNSETS AND STORMS AND PHOTOGRAPHY AND QUILT SHOPS. wE ARE A TOURIST MECCA. MG

How did it do that?

Here is a more or less good enough schedule for Sunnycamp (you can tell we are a bit casual).

Maritime and Other Workshops
October 8, 2011
Camp Morehead
Nahcotta, Washington, on the Long Beach Peninsula



Camp Morehead, just north of the Port of Peninsula on Sandridge Road, Nahcotta, WA. Cost is $5 plus $5 for any meal

Friday: Potluck and group singing….6 p.m. on. $5 plus potluck dish.

Saturday:

9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. -- Women at Sea. Alice (Wendy has been called back to sea.) Alice is the director of Maritime Folknet and a great organizer of maritime music events. Discussion of the roles women have played at sea, with songs interspersed.

10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Australian songs. Dick . Dick is a long-time member
of the Portland folk music community. This workshop/song-circle is a chance to sing all the down-under songs you know, and Dick will fill in from his collection.

10:30 a.m. to noon. Songs of the Pacific Northwest, with maritime focus. Tim . Tim is an educator from Guemes Island and has written some wonderful songs of the Northwest. He will be joined by other writers on northwest maritime themes.

Noon to 1:30. Lunch, $5. Vegetarian soup, make your own sandwiches, cookies.

1:30 to 3 p.m. Maritime songs by Bill . Bill is leader of the Victoria Nautical Song Circle and a great song leader. He will be joined by several people and of course everyone will sing along in choruses.

2:00 to 3 p.m. Hawaiaan songs by Cate . Cate is a local journalist who has lived in Hawaii and collected some wonderful songs.

3:00 to 4:30 p.m. Sea Shanties, led by Wayne of Seattle. Wayne is a fisheries expert, and a great sea shanty leader. He will get everyone singing for sure.

3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Autumn songs by Mary . A selection of songs celebrating the season of autumn. Some of the most beautiful songs are on this theme.

4:00 to 5:00 p.m. (Uncomfirmed). Sean nos singing by David of Portland. David is an expert on the Irish style of Sean Nos singing, which is unaccompanied, very old in style. He is held in great respect by the people in Ireland who sing in this style.

Other workshops might be added by people at the last minute, but there will be continuous maritime themes from 9:30 a.m. to at least 4:30 p.m. There will be lots of singing as well as information given on maritime history.

People are welcome to stay for a salmon dinner (only $5 if enough salmon is available) and stay for a short concert followed by group singing. It should be noted that group singing will be led by song leaders for the most part, and does not involve use of song books, but there will be lots of choruses etc.

Sunday there will probably be a gospel workshop, along with whatever people put together. This is not a shy group, and there will be lots of singing, probably loud vigorous singing. We have great song leaders and can use lots of chorus people. No singing experience required.   Join us if you would like, and a meal again is $5. Lunch is at 12. People will probably drift away by 3 p.m. probably, or earlier if they have a long drive.


Contact Mary at 360-642-8049 or mgxxxxxx (6 x's)@ yahoo.com. Web site (be sure to put in 2011a) is http://www.sunnycamp2011a.webs.com. It is OK to just drop in but we can not guarantee a meal for you.


David..hope you don't mind..we had a cancellation. Let me know if this is a problem. mg

Transportation: I am flummoxed. A number of people -- maybe 4 or 5 would love to come if they can get rides from Seattle..and one from Port Townsend. I don't know how to provide them..I have pretty much exhausted my resources. Is anyone in driving distance..including from Bellingham and B.C..willing to pack your car with as many as can safely pack and come down..you can come for free and charge them gas. I hate for people to miss such a lovely time and I picked all these huckleberries that will go to waste..well, not really because extra food is given to food program.

Anyway, worst case scenario..public transportation is doable.

CHEAP BUT GET UP VERY VERY EARLY.

Get to Olympia by 9:30 a.m. or so. Get off at Greyhound station. There is a Starbucks across the park if you need a bathroom. Get on bus to Aberdeen..cost about $2 or $3. In Aberdeen..check schedule...I think in about half an hour a bus goes to Raymond and South Bend. It will kick you off in South Bend. There is a nice little museum there, a great state capitol..county I mean..up a steep hill..not much to do otherwise..At about 3 I think you get back on the bus and go to Naselle. In Naselle you catch the Astoria bus. I think you stay on the Astoria bus and it goes to Ilwaco. Then I can't remember if you transfer in Ilwaco or not..but anyway, take the bus that goes on to Ocean Park and winds around past Oysterville. Tell the bus driver you are going to camp Morehead near the Port of Peninsula..he/she will knowt he Port if not the camp. Don't get off in Ocean Park.. (DO NOT TAKE BUS TO OCEAN SHORES FROM ABERDEEN). Stay on bus..it loops all the way around the top of the peninsula. It should drop you off right at the camp. If you miss the camp on the way around DO GET OFF AT JACK'S. It is about two miles..it should get you there around 7 I think. If you get off at Jack's (You pass it once, loop around, should get off at camp, but if you miss it, get off at Jack's when he turns..just ask. Then call me at (hope I can find my missing phone) at 360-244-0952.

OTHER WAY..EASIER BUT MORE EXPENSIVE.

tAKE TRAIN TO Kelso. Get off in Kelso. Google Wakkiakum On the Move. There is a bus that will pick you up at the train station around 3 p.m. I think..but double check. If you have a long wait there is a great historical msueum a few blocks away. Take the bus (best to call the number first and confirm them pickin you up)to Naselle. In Naselle, take the Astoria bus, and then follow directions above, getting to Ilwaco, then Ocean Park, then staying on bus, looping around until you get to Camp Morehead..about a half block north of Port of Peninsula. Watch for Harborview Motel..it is .3 miles past that.

GETTING BACK. SOL AS TO PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION, BUT I AM PRETTY SURE THERE WILL BE SOMEONE WHO CAN SQUEEZE YOU IN..NO GUARANTEES THOUGH. IF BAD COMES TO WORSE..I CAN PUT UP ONE OR TWO PEOPLE IN MY LITTLE ATTIC..AND THERE IS PUBLIC TRANSPORT THE FOLLOWING DAY..CAN GET ALL THE WAY BACK TO SEATTLE FROM 9 A.M. TO 7 P.M. ON A SERIES OF BUSES, OR CAN TAKE LOCAL BUSES TO KELSO AND TAKE THE TRAIN.

sURE WISH we had some drivers..part of the problem is everyone drives tiny cars these days.

Call your friends in Seattle and tell them they can come for free if ehy drive 2 or 3 or x people. mg

Seeking riders (or ride) to Sunny Camp. I live in south Seattle (Columbia City), drive a Chevy Aveo and am definitely going to the camp.   I'd love riders to share gas and possibly driving (it's a stick shift). Aveo is a compact, has seat belts for five (!) but not a lot of luggage space, so skinny, guitar-less people are especially welcome.   Oh, and I'd really like to leave Seattle before rush hour, ideally by 2PM.   Anyway, give me a call at (206) 721 4940, and maybe we can work something out.

Sounds good to me. We are working on this behind the scenes but still need help. The problem is that this is a group somewhat hard to pin down..they might come, they might not. They might come Friday or Saturday. They might go by way of Wenatchee or Louiville..Here are some options if all else fails.

Take train to kelso, arriving by 2 or so..check schedules..contact Wakkiakum on the move..a bus will pick you up at Train station and take you to Naselle..get on Astoria Bus..have change and ask if it is cheaper to get a $1.50 ticket or not..it will be no more than $1.50. In Astoria, I thin, you stay on bus..ask driver to make sure. He/she will take you to Ilwaco. I think you stay on bus and come to Ocean Park, stay on bus, tell driver you are going to Port of Peninsula/Camp Morehead. Bus goes right past it...it loops around north end of peninsula. When you see Harborview motel you are almost there.... 0.3 miles...Do not go past Port of Peninsula..in fact get off before but if you miss it (hard sign to read from other direction) get off no later than Port of Peninsula. You will see huge piles of oystershells in the area.

I am reasonably sure we can get people back to Seattle more easily than getting them here. Someone else is probably taking the public transport from Seattle..there is another way that is very cheap but requires getting up very early, getting to Olympia by 9:30 to train station.

I just talked to Robinia and she and another woman are going to carpool so my official worry is over. Now one person in Port Townsend, but she has the choice of getting to Seattle either the day before or teh morning of to hitch a ride.

This is the hardest part for me and something I will turn over to a transportation expert in the future..I am serious about renting a van of some sort..it would be great. mg

Had a little water scare about boiling water because of e. coli test a bit north of camp but I called and it is not our water system and they have passed all tests. Nevertheless, we will be taking all sorts of precautions in the kitchen with dishes etc. For some reason this year I have been very concerned with food safety issues..I mean we always try to follow the rules but we'll be super careful. I think it would not hurt for people to bring their own bottled water but again our water will be OK and has passed inspection, in case anyone has seen the report (it is for Oysterville and we are not on that system..and no one has reported an illness, it is from their inspections).

I will take all suggestions into consideration. I am going to quarantine the dishes and cooking utinsels we use, and have brought a number from work and home. I don't expect a huge crowd..Saturday we could have locals joining us but I don't know how many..we'll just have to be flexible. mg

Go there for most information you might need. Looks like weather will be mixed like today..sun, showers, rainbows, unicorns...

We are short on kitchen dishrags, towels, pot holders. If you have old ones you don't mind perhaps getting ruined or stained, please bring, along with any fancy teas, jams, condiments that you might have sitting around. Must be unopened and not expired and no question as to their freshness and safety. Also if you want gourmet coffee, I was going to get some but am running short of money..that is because I am too lax about making people fork up. Anyway, if you want to drink anything but FOlgers, better bring it yourself. mg
