Default Cabin Retreat VI!



It's time to begin plans for the 2008 Cabin Retreat!! The dates are a week earlier this year, May 16 ~18 ... For those of you who are new, this will be the 6th time we've met at a beautiful log lodge in Big Rapids, MI which is about 1 hour north of Grand Rapids. It has 3 bedrooms and a large sleeping loft. For our retreat we'll be limiting the number of glasser's actually staying at the cabin to 30. There are enough beds and cots to sleep about 20 I think. The last 10 will need to bring their own cot or air mattress. There is also room for a few tents to be pitched on the property - so if that is an option for you we can allow several of those as well. And finally, there are several hotels within a 10 - 15 minute drive for those who would like to drive in during the day.

Okay, now the $$ details. We changed a few things in back 2005 and they worked so well that we’ll be doing it again this year. I will be bringing up a couple of my friends to cater our meals and clean up the cabin on Sunday. And I will also rent the oxygen from a local company who will deliver to the cabin so we don't have to worry about people transporting their tanks.

The costs are as follows:

For those staying or tenting at the cabin: $100 per person. That includes two nights lodging, Friday dinner, meals on Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday.

For those staying at a hotel: $50 per person which includes Friday dinner, meals on Saturday, and breakfast and lunch on Sunday.

For those coming on Saturday only: $25 per person which includes meals for the day.

And now the rest of the details: I need you to initial and sign a copy of the “Rules for the Cabin” and enclose it with your check. I’m hoping that will help everyone understand the premise of what our retreat is all about!

Cancellation policy: No refunds after 4/28/08, before that there will be a $25 cancellation fee. If you can find someone to take your place - great! But I will not be responsible for finding that person and you will need to arrange the payment details as well as notify me of the change.

PM me for my mailing address.

Sleeping space in the cabin will be on a first $$, first bed basis. I will assign spots as I receive your reservations.

Can't wait to see you all!

2008 Cabin guests... so far!

Oh Anne! Would you... might you.... could you?! Karen's right - GR is the closest. And it just so happens I could pick you up!

You know I'm there! (if Nancy's still my friend since I don't answer my phone and I've disappeared lately).

Anne...do it! I fly in from Arizona, drop the kids with my family in Indiana and drive up. It's worth every minute of the trip! Grand Rapids airport is fast and easy, too.

I so need to do this. I used to live in Big Rapids - it's gorgeous there!
Anne, check the flights coming into Detroit Metro airport. Those might be a little more reasonable. And if I go I would pick you up.

Oooh, I mentioned this to dh and he wants to come too! Since we lived there he still has some friends that he'd like to visit. Which means if we can swing it at all we'll need to stay at a hotel. I'm saving my pennies now!!

Deb, we have done a lot of different things at the cabin....Knitting, chainmaille, kumokemo (sp?), wireworking, seedbeading (all kinds). We have not done PMC to the best of my knowledge. We soldered a few years ago and that was a fun time too. We made glass slide strip pendants I'm probably forgetting a few things....

I would LOVE if someone did a basic hands-on PMC and soldering!

I'm always amazed by how broad everyone's knowledge is -- there are people who are knowledgeable on almost anything you can think of!

I could do a silver core demo. I already did one at Barb's, but if there is interest I could do another one.

Karla,I know! I decided last year that I would go to this one this year if they'd have me but I really want to come to the Mo one too. Well, it can be MO next year.

I'd be happy to do PMC. Last year I did it in MO and it was a little too chaotic. I'd need to limit it to maybe 6 or 8 people actually doing it but anyone could come in and watch. I'd do the PMC buy too and basically give people my price for PMC. It's just what people there want. As the first timer I don't want to butt into what you already have planned. I'll volunteer to do a chainmaille class as well if anyone is interested in that. It'll be simple beginning maille, nothing too fancy.
