Thanks, Janie! Earlier today I tried to post this monumental news myself, but even the Mudcat link-maker could not overcome my essential techno-klutziness, and I was unsuccessful. There's just no explaining some things.

Anyhow, do keep in mind that the schedule is subject to change -- though we fervently hope not to have to make changes!

Enjoy! See you all at the Getaway!

I have set aside some jars of home-made reduced-sugar jam for the silent auction. Also, a cast-iron candle-lantern in the shape of an owl (nice for outside, with a citronella candle in it) and an enormous Chinese porcelain teapot, both previously the property of my elder brother. Both items have been in my house for three years without being used even once, so Out They Go. But they're nice (at least in my opinion), so the silent auction is the destination.

I am trying to rearrange my schedule to attend.

I'd be happy to help with random craft activities (I have fond memories of an impromptu let's make stuff out of broken jewelry" workshop last time I came, mumblety-many years ago.)

Would home-canned goodies, or fresh-baked ones, or jars of fudge sauce, be good for the auction?

Janie, I have an interesting pile of sheet music and music books I think would be good for the auction. If I can get it to the Getaway via some kind soul traveling from here to there, I'll send it along. Does that sound like something that would be welcomed?

If you are coming, pleas remember to bring something for the silent auction, which funds the Getaway scholarship fund. Equally important, bring a little cash or your check book so you can bid.

Items small and large welcomed. Many of us Mudcatters, me included, have in the past been able to attend the Getaway because of scholarships.

If it is covered in dirt or fuzzy bunnies, or is actual trash, please don't bring it. Otherwise, one person's trash is another's treasure.

Well folks, for all of you folks visiting the Getaway that are still in town on Monday night September 26th, as well as those who are here all the time, once again I will be hosting a sing at Zed's Cafe 8225 Georgia Avenue in downtown Silver Spring MD from 6:30-8:45pm for all who are not completely sung out yet. Good food served in a living room atmosphere. We did this last year on Getaway Monday, and I do it when special people pass through town for a while now. No alcoholic beverages and we're just singing for the hell of it, but good times have always been had. I'd like to make this a yearly tradition, and the owner likes having us there. Let's join together for one more night of song to complete our Getaway weeKend memories. I hope to see you there, if you're still in town and available.

I have sent in my registration. I believe I have convinced my wife Marge to attend this year. We recently purchased a used Road Trek RV. We are not sure why we did it since we have never been in an RV before. I believe the RV will also be attending.

I officially retired and I hope to learn some new tunes and songs.

I believe I will be assisting in a Humorous Songs Workshop along with another old hand and I'll be aassisting Donna Fletcher in a workshop on "ways to sing the blues".

I am looking forward to all of it.

We're looking forward to our Getaway return after missing last year due to a poorly-scheduled work commitment.

It is going to be a very *interesting* Getaway for us. As the local gang knows - but the rest of you likely don't since lazy me never posted it here - we adopted a baby boy last year. So there will be THREE of us turning up in lovely West River.

BTW, the little guy is already a showman. Score one for environment versus genetics... 8-)

OK already, and I'm bringing the agoraphobic side of the family to the music all night section. Just in case I'll print out a registration form and snail it in.

Art Brooks, I noticed that too but found it worth it to join FSGW later just for the Echo Park events.

Something that should be corrected in the registration information: it says something to the effect that the Getaway is cheaper if one joins FSGW. FSGW is a wonderful organization, especially if one lives in the Greater DC area (we don't). OTOH, it costs more for a family membership ($45) plus two adult 3-day camps ($422, total $467) than for two non-member 3-day registrations ($462). Just saying.

The program is shaping up nicely -- still quite a few issues to be resolved, but we're confident it will be great. It's ALWAYS great! Hope to see lots of Mudcatters there!

As for that beat, I don't need a shave, but a two-bit haircut that doesn't look like one might be nice.......He DID incorporate bits of kids' games and a lullabye into his signature song. There are quite a few folklore references tucked into Bo Diddley songs. But I seriously doubt it'll ever formally happen....
