Being very near (relatively) to the Getaway site (in Richmond, VA)you'd think I'd have made it to at least one - but every year I've had something else planned for that weekend and couldn't make it. Firm intention is to be there this time around and probably with a couple of other friends in tow.

Ha, Bill!

Long story made short: I was at a recent science-fiction convention, and someone thoughtfully found a guide for me. A woman came into a discussion group and sat down next to me, and I heard her check her talking clock. We introduced ourselves and then she said, "I'm visually impaired, but I can see to give you a guide!" Well, there wasn't much guiding going on; mainly talking and meeting mutual friends for the rest of the convention! very fun. :)

Oct. 14-17 at Camp Ramblewood, for sure.

LilyFestre--when you arrive, you'll be assigned bedspace in a cabin, unless you prefer the privacy of your own tent. (You'll probably get the assigned bedspace anyway, in case you get cold.) Friday dinner is a potluck; since people arrive at all hours, it doesn;t make sense to have a dinner served at any particular time. After that, all meals are provided.

While we're at it, there's a date shift for 2006 to November 3-6, 2006. We'd like to try another camp (closer to DC, with heat and even more gathering spaces for music!) but the mid-October date wasn't available. More details on this later.

$5 per week between now and then pays your way in.
Double that and you have a very reasonable airfare included.
Tuck a little more in the jar, and you've got a nice fat fund for the auction.

Carpool and spend even MORE on all the CD's you'll want to take home!

Leadfingers & everybody,

Until a few years ago this was mostly a local FSGW event. Everyone who usually attended knew it was going to happen, and they all knew they would get their applications in "eventually," and so did the folks putting it all together.... So, no one paid much attention to making the application forms available sooner than, say, August :-).

Now that we have folks coming from Alaska and the British Isles etc we are having to arrange things so people can make their plans somewhat earlier.... We're working on it, we're working on it....

Joe, or Max, or Jeff, do you know why we aren't getting links at the top to former Getaway threads? I thought that was automatic when a thread had "Getaway" in the subject but maybe I have misunderstood.... First time ever, if so.... I just asked and Bill says somebody has to make it happen.

Anyway I think if you search for "FSGW" and/or "Getaway" you'll get lots & lots of information about what the weekend and the camp are like. But ... only believe the good stuff, the rest is a pack of lies put out by people who are too chicken to stand a little chilly weather (30 degrees inside the cabins isn't really bad, is it, Mike?) and a few minor hills....

Anyway if you find one of the earlier Getaway threads you will see all the relevant links.

But just in case it is warm, I'm bringing my swimming trunks fir the pool...

I'm also gonna revive some of my old songs from my former life so that when I go to the various workshops I'll have more to offer than MIssissippi Delta and Hill Country Blues...

Might even bring the P-Vine...

Gonna bring some moonshine, too...

Gonna do a song with KT at one of the concerts, too... We're gonna do Blind Lemon Jefferson's "Keep My Grave Kept Clean"... She don't know it yet but she will...

Gonna spend more time with my pal of pals, Ebbie, who has bailed me out of more crap here than any other Catter. Sho nuff am...

Gonna bring some "real" food, too, although the night we had salmon it was purdy good...

Not gonna attend no workshops that are entitled "Care of Muses" where folks sit around and look at a bunch of candy on a table...

Gonna bug WYSusan from now until then to come 'cause she's my bud...

Gonna spend more time with Mario, my bud Ted, Kendall and Jacqie an', well, everybody... Sniff...

Gonna get up with Ken Shotz (?) and get him to learnt me up that acapelo song he did last time...

Gonna find the Mudcat Cabin, unless its one that I burn to keep watm, to hang in a couple nights and jam and get drunk... Okay maybe not get drunk...

WYSIWYG--
The camp for 2006 is flat (and handicapped-friendly). It's on the shores of an inlet of Chesapeake Bay. Downside for you: it's a little bit father from Pennsylvania.

Folks who remember last years frigid temperatures--
Our FSGW house meterologist did some analysis on weather patterns and assures us that we've had a run of three unusually cold years, and that last year was improbably cold. Statistics being what they are, there's no guarantee of a warmer-than-normal weekend next year, but at least the odds of it being that cold again are very small.

Gotta put a tune to the NJ Turnpike song.

There is an opportunity for humor there that I'm going to ignore...

There are usually a lot of spare blankets floating around and people who get cold are the ones who don't ask. (Possibly because they don't think a nice autumn day will go all antarctic on them at night.) Instruments are usually lent if one asks, as are many things, but it's best to bring your own toothbrush and socks.

I've played blues on fiddle before, Bobert!

Bobert, the song you've (bossy!) ordered KT to learn is "See That My Grave is Kept Clean," yes? Oh, and tell Eve I'd love it if she comes! If she can put up with that much folk music, and that many folk musicians.... (Poor Eve, she is no doubt going to be addressed as "P-vine" by everyone in sight....)

For Leadfingers, Bill S, anyone else who's traveling by air, as Pauline said someone will be glad to provide you with a sleeping bag, or pillows & blanket, etc. A lot of people now bring extra gear and make it available, but better you should exchange PMs with someone and make sure it will definitely be there. Plenty of time for that.

Snuffy -- any chance you might get over here too? That would be fine.

Tannywheeler, make darned sure you aren't underdressed, or we will find you frozen into a block of ice in the morning.... Just kidding, that only happens to people who get tossed into the pool....

Pauline, we are planning to try a camp called West River in 2006. It's in Maryland, on the -- surprise! -- West River. A lovely camp, all cabins are heated and have a central area where we can hold a workshop. Plus a good sized dining hall and a nature center. It has its quirks of course but it is very nice.

It's difficult to find a camp for the Getaway. It has to be big enough to hold us all. That let out dozens of very nice camps. And then, it has to be priced in a way that doesn't drive people away. Hard to find in a large camp. We'll give this one a try.

Well goodness, the FSGW MiniFest is Feb 5, and the Washington Folk Festival is June 4-5, and we usually don't get our minds set for the Getaway until after those two events. BTW For those who can make it to the D.C. area, the Washington Folk Festival in particular is a Wonderful Event, and of course there are always mudcatters who will give you a place to stay for the weekend. Y'all come.

In re: finding places to have Getaway -- don't VA and MD have state parks with various facilities? It wouldn't make sense for y'awl to use Texas State Park facilities, but mightn't there be something similar near you? 'Course, I'm new to the mix, and you may have already looked into that and had a good reason to discard the idea.

Any Texas Mudcat Getaway attendees: Should we join up to carpool or convoy? Might that be a plan? As I think about doing this I consider other personal "errands" I could deal with in/near D.C., so might go several days early. Alternatively, a train trip to Wash., then rent vehicle for G., then home on train -- might limit gas usage and driving stress. Party going up on train? I'm starting to obsess. Gonna go think about something else.    Tw

Tannywheeler--

Believe me, the FSGW folks know about every facility available within a couple of hours of DC. I've personally researched ALL of them. The Getaway actually began at Prince William Forest Park, a U.S. National Park Service facility some 25 miles south of DC in Virginia (near Triangle and Quantico). The last time we tried to hold the Getaway there (just before we moved to Ramblewood), we didn't fit. There were some state parks that looked like they had nice facilities, but Texas (or even the middle of West Virginia) are just too far to drive for the weekend.

There simply is no perfect camp for our purposes...it's always some combination of cold, or expensive, or hilly, or rustic or 'no alcohol' or too far away..pick any 2.

well I posted to this a minute ago and it hasn't shown up on the thread...Hmmmmm.....


Micca and I will DEFINATELY be there this year....I have booked time off work already!!. We will fly out from Heathrow on the 13th October ( Don't know where we will land as yet...possibley the same airport as Micca went to last year...BWI I think) and we aim to fly back to London on the 29th October.

As Micca and I are getting married this year we have decided to postpone our honeymoon until October so we can go to the Getaway and meet 'catters!!

Time has been booked, we have been saving and I nearly have the airfare already!

Well, folks, "Sidewalk Bob and the Bad to the Bone Crazy Monkeys" is just gonna do da one song since these concerts ain't fir but one song and werez gonna do "Bad to the Bone" With the exception of KT, everyone else has heard it and I don't reckon it's gonna wherre anyone's grey matter out playin' in... I'll figure out the tabs. (What tabs, Bobert? It a George Thorgood song, fir gosh sakes and he plays eveythign with one chord.) Nevermind, I get you the *tab*...

Then Iz gonna do a duet, ("Please Keep My Grave Kept Clean" by Blind Lemon Jefferson") with KT and will do a bad recording of it and send it to her. It's gonna be in *D Modal* (double dropped D) tuning.

As fir other stuff, that's what the cabin is for where the band will most likely mutiny, duct tape me to a tree outside and spend the night having big fun....

Janis was too sick to make the trip but they wewre going to send so guy I had never heard of: Doctor Hohn and thre Night Trippers... What a bunch of pain in the butts... Very demanding and feathers everywhere...

Little did I know that one day Doctor John wouldn't be sucha pain in the bitt or that he'd let go the dozen "colored girls" with the bif feathers. I don't care, They were jerks...

We are far more subtle than that. And far more dangerous. We prefer to leave our victims severely mangled but alive. Being in ladylike mode for the duration of the Getaway, I will not participate in the sacrificial sections of the proceedings. But I will help plan them.

And ten bottles of champagne is nowhere near enough. I plan to bring some of my own favorite - Mumm's Cordon Rouge. Unless of course there is a half price sale on something vintage from the Rothchilds at Hannaford's. Stranger things have been known to happen.

Sometime in September there is a drop-dead date where we have to tell the camp how much food to provide.   That's the final absolute (almost) deadline for registering, but you can register as soon as we put up the forms, which will be after we find an FSGW volunteer to handle this year's registrations.

By mid August we'd like to have lots of registrations already in hand and have some idea how likely others are to register.

Now back to the party....

See, that's the problem around here. We got terrific tacticians and no strategists. I think relocating to Florida was a strategy!!!

Anyway, we'll fall back on the use of Bunker Buster Chick Tunes and chocolate-melting serenades and hope that keeps the sunshine turned on while we are together. Because, ya know, the thing about Jeri, and Jacqui, and Mary and others of the Invert Persuasion, is that they are just so melt-down IRRESISTIBLY fine when that sunshine is shining out, and they smile and look with their big eyes...ya just get all discombobulated and the world seems the better for it. Undeniably persuasive and irresistibly boooootiful.

So let's aim for that.

Well, I got home four days ago and I'm well enough now to sit up and take nourishment so I've been catching up on this Getaway 2005 thread. It will be great fun - and just maybe warmer. On that last night in 2004 I wish I'd thought of going to our cabin and lugging back my sleeping bag. I'd have been toasty sitting there into the night.

Mick, I had to cut back all kinds of grandiose plans on my trip. But I had a great time - met "a lot of good people and I call them friends", saw lots of beautiful scenery and LOTS of snow (especially in the Winnipeg area), lots of big sky and landscapes... My aim on this trip was to collect pretty pictures in my head to run across my mind in the days and years to come- and that goal was fully realized.

Neutering???? That never crossed my mind - too obvious. Wonder if we should tell Bobert of our plan for him, Jacqui? Simpler and less painful than for Mick but very subtle. We will have to get P-vine to ensure success.

And for any of you ladies who are thinking of falling for Mick's promises of chocolate and flowers, just examine my empty ring finger three years after the promise. The man can't be trusted. He actually thinks we can be distracted by "decent" champagne! He should consider himself lucky if I don't replace his potato with a prickly pear.

By the way, j. Loosen those handcuffs. Dr. Hotelling is asking questions about the bruises. And besides, he is a Captain. It is just not dignified. There are other ways to control him..."and his little dog too."

Camp Ramblewood for October 14-17, 2005. BWI still the nearest airport, technically followed by PHL, though given where people actually drive from, DCA and IAD might be better choices than PHL.

We'll shift camps to West River (and the weekend to early November) for 2006. Nearest airport: still BWI (it's even closer to West River than Ramblewood).

Maybe 2007, we can hope to have West River in October.

Neutering? That would be cutting off my nose to spite my face (or something)! By the way, it's too late for Seamus anyway.

Cat - I'm USING the handcuffs and whip so they are easily to hand.

SINS - I've explained away the bruises and the Doctor is happy now. Problem is Kendall will insist on trying to get to the keyboard so I have to be fairly hard on him, until I get him trained. I reckon that Bobert can be dealt with quite easily - he's such a sweetie we can soon have him under control. Maybe we can do P-vine a favour and send him home a better Bobert.

Amos - Home Security have NO IDEA just how bad this can get! That's all cotton candy compared to a concerted attack by a group of determined females. There is no escape once we decided that you need to be dealt with - it's best not to aggravate the situation and get tangled up with rabble rousers like Big Mick.

I ask myself if it is worth all the trials and tribulations of travel to show up in Chillblain County, Maryland, where banjo players who start too early get stuck to their strings, flying three thousand miles in a pressurized cigar-tube, being shaken down by "F" students who finally found work, slogging over hill and dale to find a place to sleep, only to be surrounded by svelte Amazons with their long knives in hand, chortling WIccan spells and threatening to open my harmless scrotum for sport. Is it worth it, I say?

Then I think about the possibility of escaping them long enough to play "White Boy Lost in the Blues" with Bobert some time, or maybe do "Wild Colonial Boy" with Mick, or hear Kendall play that banjo up close, and I think to myself, "Lad, it is sure that there are some things in life that are of an Absolute Goodness, and that kind of music is among 'em."

So then I think futhah, and I think of possibly helping Mick and freeing Kendall and maybe even kidnapping Micca and taking him out for a tot of something nice while his keepers are being distracted by BB's foot-rubs, and I think, "Some things just must be done, no matter how risky, because they are of the Absolute Good."

Then I think what it would be like if the whacky War Among the Wimmin was called off and I could share all this chocolate I have wi' some of my favorite Cats, and sing melty ole chick songs like "The Kind of Love You Never Recover From" (even the title gives me chills) and "I Remember Lovin' You", an' stuff, and I thinks to meself, "Lad, the world has hope and beauty in it, as well as adventure, and Hope and Beauty are always worth striving for."

So then I think I will go to the Getaway, after all.

But the durable cup idea sounds good, too.

You guys just don't get it. First, there is no such thing as a svelte folkie - nice try Amos but we ain't buying sugar this week. Next, we have no intention of harming you physically - that would be cutting off (sorry...) our noses (or whatever) to spite our faces. Lastly, neither Kendall not Micca will go with you willingly - guys they got it all and know it. Iron bars do not a prison make and there isn't a cellar strong enough to contain an unwilling Captain. Micca would just have to wave his magic crystal and fly away.

There are quislings among you, gentlemen. You can not trust your own to protect you. Bearded Bruce isn't trying to distract us, he is trembling with anticipation at the prospect of twiddling our toes. Kendall sings "I Remember Loving You" and means it! Does it rather well too. Alaska Mike is laughing at you from the position of safety - he longs to see Mick get his.

And what exactly is "his"? You have 8 months to contemplate it. We haven't decided Amos' fate yet. Maybe nothing - the anticipation alone will destroy him.

"All in good time, my pretties. All in good time."

We haven't decided Amos' fate yet.

Hmmm.... not sure I recall volunteering for this executive hierarchy, SInsull, old gel. As for your dismissal of svelte folkies, well, I gotta set the record straight here. I have seen several Folkies who svelte enough to sweat the joint off a ball-cock without a torch. (That's plumber talk). And you know, they were always so pleasant and all, and so well-informed and friendly and fun. So, never having had the honor to meet you, I just assumed you extended that principle and were svelte as well. And I am sure there's quite enough sveltitude to go around Jacqui several times over. Both Micca and the Captain, as you so deftly point out, are volunteers, and they are both reputed to have impeccable taste in wenches.

But Mick, see, you have to be gentle with. He has feelings, ya know... and like you is not someone to piss off gratuitously, no matter how large and dangerous you may believe yourself.

Quislings, now, see, that's a different story. I have never been sold into bondage before, but given the femininity of the other side, I am not sure I would complain very much.

I want it on record that I said nothing about "longing to see Mick get his." If I were able to attend this years Getaway, I would most certainly be on the righteous side of the conflict, i.e. the MALE side. As all knowledgable people know men are smarter, stronger, more generous, faster than speeding locomotives and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound.

So go ahead ladies, do your worst. The men of the Getaway can easily withstand any onslaught you might devise and rise triumphant at the close of the event. I say these words knowing full well that I will be 4,000 miles away when the s**t hits the fan.

Oh My !!!

Now boys, I don't want to discourage your wonderfully well trained behavior. After all, flowers and chocolate, champagne and love songs are all definately behaviors we encourage the men in our lives to pamper us with as often as possible. (Note to all males reading this remember Monday is Valentines day !)

But Getaway magic involves a separation from the everyday world, and you can probably be guaranteed that the unexpected is the norm. Now, if you would just relax and let us have our way with all and sundery I'm sure everything will work out fabulously.

Pissed off? Mick? Or me for that matter? I keep reminding you we mean no physical harm. Just plan to have some good natured fun with him when he least expects it. And all tastefully done so as not to make FSGW regret inviting us. Trust me - when you have been "gotten" by Mudcat women, you will laugh the loudest or at least twitter in bashful glee.

I just love the picture of a bashful Big Mick twittering gleefully. Now...how to make old Amos twitter...any thoughts ladies? jacqui? Tinker? Maybe we should have Bearded Bruce massage his feet? Bruce? What do you think?

SINS,this will take a little thought. After all this is going to be my 5th Getaway so we have a little more first hand experience with some of the gentlemen involved. And they, perhaps, are spreading unfair warnings based of their interpretation of those experiences. But we know they are capable of not only taking care of themselves, but seem to keep coming back for more.

Gary, don't worry about an Alaska fix. KT and Ebbie are headed your way again this year. And I am proud as punch that you have taken on the "Iditarod" song. Anybody that can sing the Iditarod song can certainly bamboozle a few smart alecky women who think they can get the better of the Getaway men. Teach that song to Big Mick and Amos, sounds like they could use some help.

Great news, Stephen!! One more testosterone laden creature to help us defend from the devious ministrations of these female minstrels. Be especially on the lookout for one Irish woman who looks like she could be a Sullivan, as well as a beautiful, wee lass leading a Captain around by the ear. These are dangerous creatures, something akin to the harpies. They will lead you onto the rocks for certain. There is an old husbands tale out there that says you can protect yourself by wearing a necklace of bon bons around your neck, hanging decent liquor and champagne from the doors and windows, and being able to sing a decent love song, chantey, old time rock and roll, etc. DO NOT BET YOUR LIFE THAT THIS IS THE CASE. It harks back to a time when men were seeking reasons for their natural surrounding women. While science has not given us complete understanding on these complex creatures, it has informed us that we are carrying a full load of aul shite when we act like we get it.

Anyway, bring instruments and a repertoire of good songs and I will sing with you, prior to my execution.

Lynn Title's fudge cake is another example that comes to mind, not to mention Alaska Mike's home-smoked salmon which (sob) will not be there this year unless he can somehow air-mail it.

Mike SMOKED that salmon?! You going to tell me he CAUGHT it, too!?

God, that was one of the most delicious things I've ever tasted. I actually think the camp does a pretty good job with food, but it was pretty sad that they had salmon on the menu after we had tasted Mike's.

Oh, pretty.... look...

According to Shawlmaster MMario, 50% will go to the Mudcat, and
50% will go to the FSGW scholarship fund.   AND you will be able to arrive at the Getaway in style!

Giok--
The drive from JFK airport in New York to the Getaway could conceivably take 3-1/2 to 4 hours IF it were smooth and there's no traffic. HAH! Plan on something closer to 5 hours, since we're talking reality here. You'll need to get out of the airport and follow the Belt Parkway aorund the shore of Brooklyn (and past Coney Island) to the Verrazano Bridge, cross Staten Island (that first stretch is the part of the trip that takes an incalculable amount of time, since it's so traffic-dependent), enter the New Jersey Turnpike and take it to its Southern Terminus (90 minutes), cross the entire state of Delaware (about 15 minutes) and proceed through Northeastern Maryland to Camp Rablewood (another half hour or so).

".I hope all the wonderful FSGW folks don't mind the Invasion of the Mudcatters......"
we have always had folks from 'out of town', some of whom we only see once a year or so...this is just extra. As long as it is treated as a way to share music, and doesn't become just a Mudcat 'happening', it will be fine. (If you say 'hello', and sing with us, you ARE part of the crowd pretty fast! *grin*)...but we have FSGW members who have never seen Mudcat (or even a computer) and might need reassurance. So far, it has been 97.0327% positive, and locals look forward to neat new music and people. (as you may have noticed, we try to mix the cabin assignments to increase interaction and 'awareness' *smile*)

As the general folkie population ages and scatters, this sort of thing may be the glue that allows an event like the Getaway to happen on such a scale. The worst 'problem' we have right now is that there is so much talent and ideas that it is impossible to have EVERYONE who is qualified and willing leading workshops and doing concerts! (such a problem to have, huh?)

I, personally, think that an extra day would be nice...like arriving Thursday night and having Friday be an 'unstructured' day for random singing and conviviality. That is a vague, possible thing for sometime, but it obviously would cost more and not everyone could get the time off work, etc...who knows what might happen if this grows and reaches critical mass in attendence! Wow.......

John & Skarpi, the best thing to do from there is to have some FSGW person pick you up at the airport, take you home, feed you, spend half the night chatting, provide a place to sleep for the night and drive you to the Getaway on Friday.

This will happen, if you wish it. It may be too early to set up the details, (or maybe not). Later I think we should have a thread on Getaway Travel Logistics so's we can keep track of who-needs-what. There may be non-Mudcat folks who'd love to help out, too.

That's what we did when 24 members of the Shellback Chorus arrived here needing sleeping gear & transportation for the Getaway.

If for some reason you don't want to do that we'll help you figure out what you need but ... the FSGW is, always has been, extremely hospitable to visiting musicians.

I'm here, I'm here! Bill is right, I sometimes cannot check in every day, but since I am doing programming for the Getaway, I will be around as much as possible.

We appreciate all your input; please be aware that we will not be putting the schedule grid together for some time. Rita, Bill, Charlie(in fact, most of the usual suspects) are involved with the Washington Folk Festival, FSGW's biggest single event, and so we will be busy through the first weekend in June with that.It also helps to wait until the registrar is in place, so we can see who is coming this year. However, PLEASE feel free to send workshop suggestions, info on your own talents, etc. to me or to Rita. It would be easier for us if you would PM me rather than communicate only through the thread(s); this thread alone is now over 400 entries(!) and I do not want to miss anybody.

Every year I think, "how can it get better than my memories of last year?" and every year holds new and wonderful times at the Getaway. Since I've been going evey year for over three decades, I feel confident in predicting a wonderful time, and I am looking forward to seeing you all.

Tinker,

We are touched by your forward-gazing remarks, and trust it is reciprocal, or will be soon. In any case we are in complete accord with your suggestion about inspiration. We need to get ahead of the curve so that we can persuade the Ladies of the Getaway that our sensitivity and mystic fascination with touching, deeply-felt experiences involving "frontal meditation" (as we refer to some of our meditative exercises) are not only inspiring to us in themselves, but are dramatically uplifted by inspiration in others.

Therefore we urge the Mudcat Ladies Benevolent Sensitivity Association to improve their capacity for inspiration (which is always uplifting) and their sensitivity to our forward-looking ambitions. We can use all the help we can get, despite our intense training in dexterity under mystic influences. With luck we can look forward to a program of inspiring exercises which will get us to a place where we can hit the spot, just under the wire.

With best regards,

Amos,

You can be secure in your beliefs and understandings that the Mudcat Ladies Benevolent Sensitivity Association is taking under consideration our ability to assist in the practice and demonstration of the temple's meditation program. The glorious and bountiful assets management techniques utilized my our members(although individual practices and degree of personal uplift experience is still a subject of individual discretion and hot debate) will be available through out the weekend, and randomly administered as the spirit so moves. Although the ladies have their own techniques for Becoming Overly Blessed...... your stimulating exchanges are always a welcome addition.

Blessings and Light

Tinker

LOL!

I am so delighted that the Temple is being, um, received with such con-front and com-passion.

I am sure that the asset management skills will serve our benevolent purposes most fondly. We offer our sensitive support and lessons in Braille to anyone who desires them; Teresa may volunteer as a volunteer instructor in either the Braille lessons or the asset management training, or both. That's all still to be negotiated. But for now, thanks for your support, your answers are, um, spot-on.

Clotho weaves the thread of life, Lachesis measures it, and Atropos cuts it. Sounds right to me. Of course they are also known as the Three Graces. Take your choice of mythologies. But I am definitely Atropos, so be nice.

Brett, by the time we are done, Wakana will be a ring leader. Such is our power. How do say cat o' nine tails in Japanese?

And a new candidate had been added to the list: Bro' Joe has tweaked my nose. Jacqui has the perfect plot. PMs later. Still not sure about Amos. Other than his obsession with breasts he keeps his weaknesses too well hidden. HMMMM.

Mmario I liked your suggestion for the logo.

Um, Euphrosyne, Aglaia and Thalia are the three graces actually. No relation to the Fates except they're all Greek.

It seems that Aglaia (Splendor), Euphrosyne (Mirth), and Thalia (Good Cheer) presided over banquets, dances, and other pleasurable social events, and brought joy and goodwill to gods and mortals. With the Muses, they sang to the gods on Mount Olympus, and danced to beautiful music. Personally I would look forward a LOT more to spending the Getaway with a bunch of ladies who thought they were the three Graces than the three Fates. I suppose it's too late now? Yeah I thought it was.

approximate agenda - Friday evening meet and greet and eat - potluck supper; settling in, impromptu music, much hugging and chatter. late night music continues in some places.

Saturday and Sunday - workshops, mini concerts and impromptu stuff all over the place, good food, evening "concerts" you can sign up to perform in. Some farewells. late night music continues until ??? in some locations.

Monday - groggy packing, farewelling and leaving by sleep deprived - music continues.

"Real soon now" we're going to start an edited thread with the Getaway 2005 registration information and stuff like that so information will be easy to find.

The Getaway committee are all up to our ears in work for the Folklore Society of Greater Washington's (FSGW's) Washington Folk Festival (June 4 & 5) right now. Carly & Charlie are threatening to start work on the Getaway on the 6th (hahahahahaha as Mick says) which means it will not be TOO long now. As for me I plan to collapse and do as little as possible for the entire week of June 5 and I suspect I'm not the only one, so don't grumble too much please if we're a week or 2 later than that getting started.

Jacqui, I know the captain. Any pointers you've learned from dealing with him would be useless for Wakana. Whereas he is an old curmudgeon, I am sweet, kind, and gentle. Of course, I know that Kendall is too. He just doesn't want to show it. Besides, Wakana is doing just fine without any help from western women. Maybe she has some pointers for all of you! Japanese women know how to deal with their men. They are sweet and submissive. And if you believe that one I have this property in New York I want to sell. It's a bridge...

Bill, I will take you up on that cooler. Can you stock it with something tasty? I will PM you with a list and reimburse you the expense. As for blankets that might be a good idea. We will have some kind of sleeping bags and sheet sets for sleeping in hostels but Wakana is sure to be cold as she is from a warm land and loves the tropics. Me? I have no plans to sleep. The best advice I ever got for working the Mystic Sea Music Festival was not to waste any of my time sleeping. It sond like this will be the same thing.

Oh, and I claim dibs on the best and warmest cabin/room. This is for Wakana, you understand. My own comfort is of little consequence but SHE must be comfortable. For her this environment is going to be about as alien an environment as anyone can experience. She ought to be able to sleep comfortably.

Charlie Baum is planning to start a new edited thread for the Getaway when he posts the registration forms. There has been a sad delay due to Charlie's mom becoming very ill. She died on July 24 I'm sorry to say, that's why Charlie wasn't at Old Songs. I hesitated to post about it until I asked Charlie's permission.

Once we have the permathread for registration info, etc, I think we might start a second permathread just for logistics: how many people need to have pillows & blankets/sleeping bags supplied by local people, who can provide what, who is arriving when at what airport, etc. On the other hand that may just be too much organizing ... we'll see.

We're going to make it cross-listed to this thread, which is where the banter can remain, and we'll be editing the other thread to keep the banter here and not there.

Blame it on Debby McClatchy. She's already forced me to promise to wash dishes for her at San Francisco's Camp Harmony after Christmas.

Well, if the truth must be told, maybe it was my fear of SINSULL that drove me away. but I'd better not say that. Now I'm up to eight excuses, two each on Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. The two classes I teach at church Monday are the ones that are hard to squirrel out of. I'm thinking hard on this one, but I haven't figured a way out. I won't have an opportunity to train replacement teachers until later this year, because the programs don't start until mid-September.
My wife Christina asked me who this Sinsull was, and I said she looks kind of like a prim-and-proper schoolmarm who went astray. I showed Christina Sinsull's picture, and she said that yes, she could see how Sinsull was the type of person who would give me a hard time. Of course, Christina thinks I deserve a hard time. But looking at those pictures of last year's Getaway, I thought how sad I'll be to miss seeing all those nice people this year.

After all - joe doesn't have internet connection from the Getaway and we all know he is such a megalomaniac that the thought of three days without editing a thread without concern for his fellow posters would probably send him over the edge.

If this is something like an 8 session course, simply have the last class on the 9th Monday. Two months advance notice is plenty to offer on a schedule or on a schedule change.

Dear Management:

Mister Offer will be unable to conduct his scheduled class on Monday; he has answered a higher calling to attend to the needs of his flock, an international conclave of aspiring souls who rely on his spiritual guidance to save their souls and indeed, in this hour of need, their very lives.

We regret any inconvenience this may cause, but we felt you would understand that where mortal peril is concerned, scheduling convenience must give way in favor of immediate intercession.

We will take every care to ensure Father Offer is returned to you unharmed to resume his normal teaching duties (although no guarantees can be offered, due to circumstances which may well be beyond our control).

Thank you for your understanding.

Just a couple of notes for you old timers>

If you remember back a couple of years ago (2003) a young girl named Elizabeth LaPrelle sang and stunned the group with her rendition of Appalachian ballads sung with her mother (right as the movie Songcatcher came out). Also portion of the Soup Kitchen showed up at the Getaway to sing a few songs. Well both of them just finished a series of gigs at the Center of the Known Universe, Shepherdstown, WV for our annual Appalachian Folk festival and both put the crowds away. I had a little time with Elizabeth's father who told me she is in college (forget where) and has been singing up a storm with gigs through November. Well you heard her at the Getaway first.

See you there!

Yes, and John LaPrelle will come too, IF he can get a ride back to somewhere near Rural Retreat, VA on Sunday so's he can get to work on Monday. (Sandy is going on to Philly after the Getaway.) Any ideas for a ride for John?

For those of you who are new to the Getaway, Elizabeth is a marvelous singer of Appalachian ballads (well, so is Sandy LaPrelle for that matter, and she'll be at the Getaway).

Elizabeth has has a gig every single weekend since about the middle of August, she is starting at William & Mary as a freshman, and she has a really bad cold & sore throat right now. Getting to the Getaway was just not in the cards this year. We'll miss her!

Claymore, I am excited that (a) it looks as if you'll be at the Getaway and (b) you're a member now, so we can PM you instead of having to phone you at work. Good-oh!

I just wanted to say that I *won't* be checking in here for any information regarding the Getaway, so please don't PM me here hoping to get a response. One person lucked out that I had logged in to say I wouldn't be logging in...

I love and adore you all, but if I spend my time playing in the threads, I will NEVER get all the pertinent info into the FSGW database! My [direct] contact information is available on all the Getaway documentation, so please use that to reach me with any registration-specific questions.

I am so looking forward to seeing all the wonderful people who are coming this year. I have always loved this event and as far as I'm concerned it just gets better every year.

This duplicates my post on the Getaway Program Information thread. It's important enuf that I want to make sure as many people see it as possible. Please reply on this thread

Okay, THE SCHEDULE (draft) IS ON LINE.

Saturday Grid

Sunday Grid

Workshop leaders, we want you to tell us if you are scheduled opposite a must-see workshop. We'll try to "fix it."

Everybody, tell us where your worst conficts are. We'll try to fix it if enough people holler ouch. (It's one of those things where sometimes the cure can be worse than the disease, so we're careful about making changes.)

Last year a few people suggested that the Getaway would be less hectic (and frustrating) if we had a bit fewer workshops and let them go on longer so more people could participate. We are trying that this year.

Workshop leaders are listed pretty much in the order in which they were signed up to lead the workshop. (Sometimes that's just a matter of who was home to answer the phone when we first called.)

Let us know what you think. (Oh, yes, this is the Mudcat.... Of course you will!)

Putting the Helen workshop on the same time as anything else is dangerous. I'd like to hear a George Papavgeris mini-concert. There's a good chunk of Sunday where I want to be everywhere. Where I end up may have more to do with inertia than anything else. And you have "The Three Eens" (CollEEN & NorEEN KEENe) on back to back, which is cool because they both do ballads. I'm glad Colleen Cleveland is going to be there!

Well Sinsull, Bruce has a VERY difficult work schedule. (I think he tracks the space station or something, and has to be there to make corrections and check the data gathering. Something like that anyway.) To hear him tell it, it's pretty boring all-night work. But there aren't a whole lot of people who can do it and the schedule is absolutely inflexible, so he doesn't get to choose his hours.) So I think we should cut him some slack.

Bobert,

"Like what was that about anyway... I never got it..."

I agree with this statement of yours- You never did get it... Nor did you ever try to find out.




Sinsull,

I will get the ginger there because I said I would have it available. I may or may not make it there, myself- But I will leave the boxes sealed so that you will have some confidence in them.

Long story, but if I am "unemployed" I have to be at work whenever they want me to work, (to fill in)- when I am "employed" I get a fixed schedule and can arrange time off.

It looks like I may get some leverage, since I am working this weekend. If the s/c is in good shape, and I can get out of town before they need me to work again, I should be there Friday afternoon.

I would offer rides, but there is some chance I would eiher not make it at all, or have to leave early.

hung- Equivalent to wedged, but more common at Unix/C sites. ... Synonym with locked up, wedged; compare hosed. See also hang. A hung state is distinguished from crashed or down, where the program or system is also unusable but because it is not running rather than because it is waiting for something. However, the recovery from both situations is often the same.

The official start time is 4 pm. If you're planning to help set up tables, set out chairs, etc, I guess you can arrive around 3:30 but your cabin and room assignments may not be ready by then.

Don't park in front of the dumpster at the Dining Hall, the Camp gets grumpy if they can't get to it, and rightly so.... park a bit farther away, on either side of the road, until you have your cabin assignment.

Naemanson, let's just say that the Ramblewood staff were just a little surprised last year when I rolled in at 1 PM. I was the first and only one for a bit more than two hours. It was okay. It gave me plenty of time to put the finishing touches on my gumbo. This year I plan to be there at least a half an hour later than that.

Weird....

Oh! Sorry. Getting used to a 'pass along' laptop from my sweet sis, Annie, and having a good bit of awkwardness. Dani, her daughters and I hope to be on the road no later than 9:00a.m.

I'm ready. I am REALLY ready for this. I don't know if most of you men know what a break this is for many of us 'married (or not), with children (or not)' women. Or maybe you do. Maybe it is very much the same for you.

There is so much fun, fellowship and the sharing of ourselves with one another through our music. It is small enough to have some connection with everyone there, at least in a song. It is a large enough gathering of a remarkably diverse assortment of souls to really demonstrate how music brings people together with common purpose.

In just the few brief years I have been coming, the Getaway has become an annual pilgrimage with elements of a spiritual retreat. It is an important event in my life.

I am forever grateful to the FSGW.

Bring items and $$ to spend for the silent auction.

Vote for Pedro.

I am probably the only person who attended this evening (Friday) who has internet access, so if anyone has information, they can post it here and I'll check this thread in the morning before I head back to Ramblewood.

I started going to the Getaways in 1999, and this one is the first I'm missed. Now that my weekend has quieted down for a few hours, I'm missing you all, and all the wonderful singing.
I can't complain, though. Debby McClatchy had her annual community concert last night, and it was a perfect old-time evening. And Riggy was up here for the first time. He was a guest performer, and did a wonderful job - and gave a nice plug for Mudcat from the stage.
I hope you're all having a wonderful time. Stay warm.

Charley slowed down enough to call around noon (well - slowed down is a bit of a misnomer - he kept phasing out as he was dashing to lunch while we talked) - said he was glad he took the extra blankets!! He also said he got to bed early - it was barely 4 am. Sounds as if everything is going great - and I'm sure I'll hear more once he's back home (though probably only after he's slept for 24 hours). Maybe next year....

The workshops were terrific, the jam sessions more than I could have ever hoped for, the Saturday night performance was terrific including the last big (no pun!) production number with some of the Mudcat lovelies in Lingerie that should be included in my thong catalog. Skarpi from Iceland, Niemanson from Guam, tons of English and Scottish and Welsh friends made and renewed. Canadians, folks from Alaska like KT and Ebbie, a great singer from Israel, plus the obligatory hundreds of folks from Takoma Park and Silver Spring, Maryland. My congratulations to all the folks from FSGW for a terrific weekend. I will write more tomorrow. I am too old to be up til 4 AM playing and singing!

Folks, this was simply the best yet. Great friends making great music. Dani had her girls there, and the wee Ducks were charming as they could be. This is a family event, if one wants it to be. There are a lot of kids here, and some of the adults, like Ken and Dan Schatz, grew up coming to these.

Too many memories to list, I will save that for Bobert's memory thread. But I will say this. Start saving now for next year. You will not regret it, and it will change your view of the music profoundly.

We will be in a new camp next year.

All the best,

Mick
