From: Ferrara
Date: 09 Oct 01 - 11:27 PM

Due to popular demand, I'm posting a PRELIMINARY list of Getaway events on our web site. As of right now, The list is here

This list is so very preliminary, that I haven't informed some of the leaders of everything I plan to have them do :-) ... Dick G, would you pretty please co-lead Parodies with Micca (he and Jeri say you know dozens of 'em); Jim Bunch, would you pretty please co-lead Scary Stories with Dani (you did offer, you know...); and Barry, would you pretty please co-lead Shanties with Jeri?

There. That should do it....:-)

The actual time and place of workshops has not been set up yet, and there are possibly more sessions coming, depending on how much room we have.

To be continued....

I'd personally feel more comfortable with "Barry, would you lead the Shanty session/workshop with Jeri as helper?" I know a few shanties, but my knowledge about the songs and the work is virtually non-existant compared to what Barry knows. I'll try to know more before the Getaway, but I still won't even be close to Barry's level of expertise.

As I just told Jed in an e-mail, I threw up this list last night just so people can start preparing songs, etc. so there are a few details to be worked out....

I intend to update it frequently. [Operative word is "intend."] There will be changes.

Jeri, Haven't talked to Barry but I'm sure that is fine. What I envision you doing, is calling on people and helping to keep the energy very positive. Barry and various other attendees will add authenticity.

Everybody note: Sea Songs at the Getaway is a very loose category. Not just shanties. I sang a ballad once, there are lots of other songs that were sung by sailors that aren't quite shanties, and some good singer-songwriter stuff too.

Look around your house for "flea marketable" stuff to donate to the Silent Auction. Last year we brought in over $300 for the Getaway Scholarship Fund. Lots of it was stuff that was headed for a yard sale anyway.... and some of it was genuine treasures that people "fought over."

I'm planning to donate one or more of my woodburned necklaces. Brand new, not yard sale....

Sad to say, Pam Swan can't make it this year because of a family commitment, and the Milners can't make it because they're too darned popular (it's one of their busiest weekends of the year).

If we ALL bring 'em, there might be enough. Chocolate to melt on them I will NOT bring, because it would get eaten between NC and MD. Maybe Uncle Joe will bring some on the plane from CA? He's a major campfire dude.

And Jeri, I'm bringing a fiddle player with me, and she's afraid there'll be too much singing and not enough music. You do a little of that, don't you?

I am bringing Guinness for the Saturday night "Misanthropes" singaround. Those of you who were there last year may recall that Milner and I drank copious amounts of the vile black stuff. It gave such a nice jolt to our singing that we ended up doing Pointer Sister melodies and dance steps to the various and sundry shanties, ballads, etc that were being sung...........wonderful stuff, that Guinness........bollocks...........Dan isn't going to make it this year...........Finn........Marum........Corlew.......Fielding..........you are going to have to fill in..........

LOL, Mick. I'll do my best. I can manage some Pointer Sisters and maybe even the dance steps, but I'm afraid I can't touch a drop of the vile black stuff (mother's milk, as my friend Karen calls it). I have a liver issue that prevents me from drinking (more's the pity) still, I can enjoy drinking through your pleasure of it!

We're off to a few MO and AR dates tomorrow ... so I'll not be back to Mudcat before Tues. I look forward to teh FSGW weekend, meeting all my Mudcat friends in the 3D world, and seeig a few old faces as well!

Sinsull,

Please do bring the things you mentioned for the Silent Auction.

I hope (probably in vain) that we'll be able to avoid any intense political wrangling at the Getaway.

That said, I believe strongly in doing as much as possible to honor and remember the dead and the bereaved in this tragedy. We would love to have your mementoes in the auction.

(My opinion only... haven't talked to the management ... not sure we have any management ... just good friends doing stuff as a team with Charlie Baum as head honcho which means he gets to do the hardest stuff....)

Uilleand, the Getaway is going to miss you too! (No International Songs session this year ... sigh ...) And I miss you anyway.

Best to all, Rita

ps Will make a few corrections to the list of workshops and post NLT tomorrow.

Rita, due to popular demand, we can schedule the "Help I'm Lost Please Direct Me to 1935" Workshop for Sunday at 1:00pm if it suits your grid. The Jazz/Swing/Tin Pan Alley contingent is vocal and demanding, but hey, they show up, play good and bring their own libations. Regards, Chance.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA .... I DID ITTTTT .... Oh i am so glad that's done.....

Now. If I misspelled your name, put your workshop in an impossible time or against something you really want to attend, used your name in vain on a workshop you really don't want to lead, or FORGOT to list your workshop, PLEASE let me know and I'll do my very best to fix it.

If I created impossible quandaries for people by scheduling two (or even three) of their favorite sessions at the same time, please also let me know. .... Whether or not it gets fixed, will depend on how many complaints I get (and how nicely they are phrased....) as well as how impossible my schedule is for the rest of the week; so don't hesitate to contact me about any problems you have.

People making UN-nice comments will be fed a large helping of moose turd pie and nominated for 2002 program chair....

See you all very soon :-) Rita

Now......My $.02:

"What I learned from Folk-Legacy" is terrific AND important. But missing "Barry and Jeri's Sea and Shanties" would be very difficult. This is too tough a choice to leave up to us.

Do we have to actually schedule TIME for meals? We'd fit more stuff in if we just left a plate of sandwiches and a pot of coffee out!

Wonderful, Rita!!! I just wish I could make it to "What I Learned From Folk Legacy." Is there anyone who DOESN'T want to be at that workshop?! WAAAAAAAA!!!

There's a few spots on the schedule where I want to be in at least 2 places at once. It's the sign of good program, and I can't complain about the scheduling. I can whine - just not complain.

And Finn has top billing for the Sea & Shanties workshop, which means he's in charge! Barry, I'll PM you to see if you want to plan anything, or just wing it.

Point of pendantacism: Maxie's a Spiegel, not a Siegel.

Actually, kids, I'll do what I can. I took the schedule, and Dani's comment, to Jennifer's B'day party... a lot of the Usual Suspects were there.... Including Kathy Westra.

They all agree that I MUST find a way to get Folk Legacy and Shanties into different time slots.

So that will be my second-to-next project, after I make a few important (but non-Getaway) phone calls this evening.

This is exactly the kind of feedback I need, BTW, thank you all. ... and keep the comments coming, as new people read the post. One reason I posted the schedule was so people can provide feedback. In fact I may wait a bit to make the final changes.

Well, this isn't about the schedule.

Over the last few years, a sort of Getaway Marketplace has grown up, helped along by the presence of Folk Legacy and Camsco Records.

This year Bill D and I are going to bring some of our woodcraft for sale. There are tables in the room between the Dining Hall and the TV room (the one where the Bench Shanty took place, for those who were there....)

I checked with Charlie and he says he would be pleased to see a kind of community marketplace develop in that area. So if you want to bring your CD's or crafts, or reasonable amounts of other folk related stuff for sale, and set it out in that room, you may. There WON'T be anybody there to watch over it, buyers and sellers will just have to find each other during the weekend. Total honor system.

But you can have a sheet there, for people to write a note if they're interested in buying something. We all wear name tags (when we remember, and didn't leave them pinned in our other clothes) so it's not too hard to find folks.

NEW SUBJECT:

If we can find a room that works, we'll try to set up a Listening Room where people can hear a bit of various recordings before they buy, or just sit and listen to some of Dick's and Sandy's fantastic music collections.

the thudding sound you may hear the next few days will be me kicking myself - as a *lot* of the stuff I would like to be at is scheduled saturday - and I have committed to being elsewhere most of the daytime hours saturday.

*sigh*

I have only myself to blame - trying to fit too much into the same weekend.

Ferrara, we are going to be "Day" people. We are staying in a nearby motel and will be eating out or picnicing. But we will be potlucking with Micca and you on Friday. I hope thats ok. We just can't settle down who's going to miss which sports game and whose friend is coming and when Matt and my grandson will arrive. It was too complicated to think about. Unless I am mistaken we don't have to register as Day people since we will be taking no meals or staying in cabins. I know we'll miss some moments, but...

OK?

Allan (and others) - I am assuredly coming to the getaway - I will be there friday, friday night, saturday evening and night, sunday, sunday night.

However, if I do NOT make an appearance at a certain performance of Commedia dell'arte; and a certain performance of "Taming of the Shrew" my life will be hell for the next twelve months - not to mention my love life cursed. (it's *not good* to get the afr goddess of love mad at you) And my love life is in sad enough shape as it is! Plus a certain pyrate has promised to sing a song for me, and I intend to collect!

and yes, it's a ren-faire. My only excuse is that they have yet to start any 12 step programs for ren-faire addicts - (though our belief is it would take at least 24 steps anyway)

Hi Ferrara
GREAT JOB job & thanks for the changes, I guess Jeri would've feign some sort of accident to leave the shanty workshop early to make it across the street only to find me there in hiding.

Hi Kendall, so nice to see you've made it back & I hear tell in such good form too. If you're still gonna do your workshop, I was hoping that you'd let me sell ice cream from the side line, there's a Sunday kickback in it for ya.

Hi Jeri
Sorry you can't PM me, you can't even e-mail me. I somehow managed, with great effort, to break my own record in widing my abilities to log on to the internet. I did such a fine job at that it neither AT&T, Microsoft nor Gateway can put me back together. See you there, Barry (known on the WWW as Humpty Dumpty)

My spouse has pointed out that I still have too many Mudcatter-led sessions scheduled against each other, especially Sunday afternoon. I replied, "That is indeed the case ... Good Though...." If this becomes a source of general grumbling (as opposed to one misguided individual's nitpicking) I'll see about changing it.

I figure I go to the "What Did You Learn From FL Workshop," hang around for a bit of Barry, run to see Rick and Jed hanging around, run to see how big Big Mick really is, then do the Sea & Shanties workshop with clothes on. I don't think shanties are a good thing to do naked, since various bits can get caught in the lines.

So Barry, you can get one of your kids to fix your computer, eh? If your modem isn't screwed, it ought to be fixable...

Oh, BTW - I don't have to be back on Tue to work. There was a miscommunication, and I'm done for a while as of now. I have a a car and a credit card, - LOOK OUT, WORLD!

A reminder of things to bring to the Getaway--

A reusable coffee mug (cuts down on the number of disposable paper and styrofoam cups)

Those warming bags that you heat up in the microwave for a minute or two and then put next to your body to keep warm. (There will be a microwave available in the dining room for this!)

Heating pads and blankets.

Weather forecast (as of Tuesday) calls for a beautiful weekend, no precipitation, daytime highs in the 60s and dropping to the mid-40s at the coldest part of the night.

I want to be at the Iron Hill show, but between Mon when I leave and Tue night is unplanned. Actually, where I'm sleeping between Sun night and when I get home is unplanned as well. I'll have a sleeping bag in my car, and floors are just fine.

Annamill, be afraid! You might wind up with a convoy of cars following you home after the Getaway!

Flashlights aren't really needed, but are useful for finding stuff in the cabin at night without turning all the lights on. And if I wind up sleeping somewhere that's light all the bloody time again this year - AAAARRRGGGHHH! (This is too much of a reminder of sleeping during daytime in a warehouse in Kuwait with a few hundred other people for several weeks and a T-shirt over my eyes because of the bright desert sun shining in through the windows. Makes me nuts. Makes me write really long run-on sentances, too.)

Comfortable shoes are a must - lots of walking. And hills - I wonder if they've done anything about those pesky hills...

Less than 24 hours until I leave!!!
