caliglassguy, first paragraph is for those submitting classes to teach. The second, I assume, is for those applying for spots to attend. Class selection is later - May or June, I think. Info is probably on the website.

Lyssa, It is fun! People stay in a variety of places - hotels, rental houses and a nearby hostel. Hopefully those who stay at hotels can give you some suggestions. There are several places to eat nearby. There's a brewery just around the corner with a small menu and sometimes a food cart on their patio. I think there's a store with a deli nearby and at least a couple of other little restaurants within a few blocks, plus other places within a pretty close drive. Some people who stay in lodging with fridges brown bag it, as well.

The closest Inns are about 6 blocks away,
There is a Hostel less than 2 blocks away with ear plugs for the train tracks at the desk (about a third of the price of the inn)
Some went together and rented a house for a week
I crashed on Nitadees floor

Thanks SO much Felicia and David, you guys are awesome! I have been working like crazy for Vegas show and got my taxes ready for my accountant this week....yippee they're done!

John, yes, that deadline is for people who want to submit classes. You will be paying May 1st and selecting classes in order of payments received June 1st.
There will be a newsletter coming to everyone who entered March 1st that will explain things a bit more than web page does.

The Whittaker hostel is pretty close and pretty inexpensive. I booked the whole garden hostel for me and a lot of my staff but the Whittaker is still open last I checked. Eugene has good transportation but a lot of folks stay in the same place and ride share. We had an instructor handling ride/room, share last year....maybe she'll volunteer again this year

Thanks again to you two for answering questions....I very much appreciate your help!
Hugs, deb

Class submissions are due. Here is what I'm thinking if teaching this year

1) opal pendants (covers the fundamentals of encasing gilson opals)
2) whale tale pendant/wine stopper (covers the folding technique)
3) reef scene wine stopper (covers making and using millefiori,filligrana, and lattacino to make a compression/implosion style reef scene)

I'll be doing two large demos as well, taking suggestions on what to do for those as the deadline for those are not looming.

Hi guys! Yes, 4 new instructors, lots of new classes and 2-3 more coming when we get the glitches out, they will be "other" and demos...possibly some fiber classes and maybe clay! I apologize for no pics on my new fish class...been waiting on a new product to finish sample fish for the class.

Lisa is sooo excited to be coming West...her classes are always amazing! I wish again I could have taken more classes but there just isn't a way to add more per time slot and keep it personal. This is going to be another great year!

David, after Vegas I will get a hold of you for some specific tech tasks, also set up and tear down info to help Jamie now that our adorable Delores is teaching!!

Wahooo!!!!
deb

Very excited about teaching a class this year, (Making a wine glass stem) that is going to be fun. The first time I went to GS two years ago I went with the intention of learning how to blow a perfect bowl and foot for wine glasses and oh my goodness I tried two classes but I just couldn't get there so I bought some from a local artist and just made the stems. It worked out so great I started making them and selling them out of my studio then I started teaching others through my studio here in Scotch Creek. And I tell you they are easy to make no experience needed. I have even walked a girlfriend of mine through the process and she had never sat behind a torch before.
So looking forward to hanging with all you guys again
Whoop whoop!! Goin to get my cowboy on. deb t

OKAY... Admittedly, I was a northern Calif gal who moved to Oregon, and wondered why we didn't move here years ago.... but, after lusting about going to this event for the last 4 years, I want to introduce myself and admit to being finally super excited to be part of it.
I am overwhelmed by the talent we will have available to us at this retreat!
How in the world can one pick from the class choices available?
I really look forward to meeting everyone and connecting with everyone

Have you decided what you are going to do for your demo's yet everyone?
hehehehehe! YES, I'm still nervous about that part. I have NO clue what I'll be doing.
Hell, I can't even figure out if I want to do soft or boro....let alone WHAT I'll be making.
Hmmmm....wonder if Karen will hold my foot again?
