Subject: who is going to Rainycamp?
From: GUEST,mgarvey@pacifier.com
Date: 13 Jan 02 - 02:19 PM

I'm going. Last I heard there was still room. It is about $75 for a weekend of do it yourself music. No special teachers or anything. Cabins in the woods Northeast of Seattle. Public transportation from airport or train or bus station would get you to Carnation I think..and I imagine rides could be provided from a meeting point, although that would have to be arranged. I do encourage people who want to meet others and have a weekend of music to come, assuming there is still room. mg

BTW, if anyone needs a ride or wants to carpool from Portland to Carnation, please let me know. I have a Corolla sedan, so I could take 1 to 3 people, depending on number and size of instruments (harmonica and pan pipe players welcome!), etc.

I am willing to ride with someone else and chip in on expenses, too. Either way, I need to stay to clean up on Sunday (about 5 PM, I guess).

You can PM me here or contact me at

I spoke with Jean this evening--sounds like Sept. 11 has impacted registration here like it has in so many ways. There is room, and she's hoping a few more folks will implusively decide to attend. Easy for folks in the Seattle area--though I will tell you that it's fairly easy if you're not nearby. I almost flew to Seattle last week to attend my cousin's funeral on Friday. I had a medical appointment I had to keep and couldn't reschedule at the last minute, so didn't go, but three days before I would have left I found a flight from DFW to SeaTac for $352. It boggles the mind!

Act implusively, plan to go and have a great time. I wish I could go, but I'm getting ready to close on a house (got to pack a heckuva lot of stuff starting in February).

check out the SW airlines fares..got some good ones these days. This is a whole lot cheaper than some of the other camps..people come all the way from California to attend....I do think that it would be a good idea to have day passes for one day attendance. I know it screws up the meal count, so I would just say bring your own food. I know several people who would come for one day and pay a percentage fee and bring their own food. I think it would boost attendance and allow some stellar people to attend in the time they have available. mg

I think the Friday evening meal may be a potluck. Here's the link to the Seattle Folklore Society website. You can find more details there. Contact Jean Smith or Bruce Baker to see if one-day passes could be arranged. It never hurts to ask.

I am so glad Ms. Rain will come to Rainycamp. What a great voice...hope Mudjack makes it too...Sad news for attendees..I probably can't bring my accordian due to transportation realities. Although if I'm lucky maybe I could borrow one. Actually I could bring my fiddle. No bow though. I should see if anyone has a spare old one.

I just noticed one of my posts above was aborted (probably a careless cut and paste operation).  It should have read "You other catters who aren't from God's Country (ducking under the keyboard to dodge the shoes and   mice being thrown), come visit us out here in the Northwest."  I do hope more of you can make it.    

Mgarvey, there'll probably be an accordion for you to borrow, but I'm told at Rainy Camp the emphasis is on singing, rather than on instruments other than the human voice, so it'll be fine, in any case. Genie

It may be my own fault. I used the "PRE" in brackets,to preserve the formatting, but I didn't realize the entry was just automatically wrapping within the Mudcat posting box and that I had not hit the return key at all. That's why it didn't automatically wrap after I posted it. Sorry.

No problem, though it was unusual to have to scroll to the right to read it! (And as I said, it was a way to refresh the thread, hoping to lure a few more folks to Rainy Camp). My Dad talked about it a lot, and I know put a lot of work into it during his lifetime. So I enjoy seeing people enticed by the discussion of the quality of the camp and the large variety of activities.

I haven't used that html tag. But it sounds useful.

Maggie, putting a note in the Help forum (click on "Help" at the top of the page) will get noticed faster, though with Joe Original still possibly on his honeymoon the clones are probably busier and it might not be fixed quickly.

I did bring Shayna to Singtime Frolics in February 2000, and that was wonderful. She's turning into quite a musician! I'll keep Rainycamp in mind for next year.

As I've said before, I'll be happy to host a Mudcat gathering in Hawaii any time someone wants to come. I don't have my huge house any more, but do have an extra bedroom. The beach park that's about 50 yards from my place would be great for a song circle, as would the large waiting room that's shared by the other three docs in my office building--after hours, of course! (My waiting room is separate from theirs, because mine tends to be full of babies and toddlers.) Just let me know when you're all coming!

Actually, I am thinking of calling a camp here at the ocean sometime in summer or fall. I always wanted an October camp, called Sunnycamp. We do have a great hall that would be perfect, except in October when it is heavily used in the cranberry harvest activities....so maybe summer. Would anyone come to Long Beach, Washington? Logisitcs are not easy, but it is about a 2 hour drive from Portland.

Big Island, Genie, Hilo (rainy) side. If enough people are really serious about this, let me know and I'll see what I can work out. Here's the monthly temperatures and precipitation for Hilo. The climate on the Kona side (about a 2 hour drive from my place; it's where most of the big resorts are and where they hold the Ironman) is almost always sunny and warm, closer to what you'd find in Waikiki on Oahu. Of course, this side of the island has Kilauea volcano.

Well, if any of you folks still want to go, it looks like there will be a vacancy at this late date, and one for a tuition-free clean-up crew member.

I'm gonna have to bail out because I've been fighting a bug all week and ended up with a stiff neck, to boot. Unless I decide to drive up on Saturday (probably about 5 hours?), I don't see how I can go.
Wish it weren't so far from Portland, but maybe there's someone closer to Seattle who'd still like to go.

there is plenty of time to enjoy yourselves if you do the work trade...the best stuff is on way late anyway. I think what they mostly look for is people to help clean up the camp on Sunday...although people pitch in...there are other chores throughout I am sure but they are not at all oppressive...but you might need to commit to staying pretty late for a drive back.

The deal on clean-up crew, as I understand it, is mainly to help clean-up on Sunday, and there should be plenty of time to participate in formal and informal activities, with the exception of the Sunday afternoon informal workshop (when the clean up crew will be cleaning up)). Everyone is supposed to be out of there by 5:00PM on Sunday.

Guest, if you are interested in going up tomorrow (or tonight) and taking my place, just call Jean Smith. There is a Rainy Camp hotline phone number given at the SFS website.
You can also email me at geniesings@onebox.com.
There's still a 10% chance I may decide to drive up tomorrow morning if no one wants to take my place on the clean-up crew. If you'd like to go, please contact me and/or Jean.

Genie

I hope you visited the sites above, Reggie, to get the details--looks like they'll have started without you. But it runs all weekend, so you'll still have time (but may need to hedge your bets by taking along a couple of sack lunches in case they've run out of wiggle room for feeding late arrivals).

I hope someone will post a few photos and run a thread to describe the weekend.
