    New Dates for the Forum Fall Fun Get Together WITH JENNY!

    HI ALL!

    In order for the forum retreat to have Jenny participate and present, we will need to schedule our get together a week earlier. Jenny is going to Australia during the time we planned our original retreat, and many of our forum members said they don't want to come if she isn't going to be in Hamilton--very understandable.

    So, Little Jean just wrote me to say she is booking us for Wed. Sept. 24 through Sunday, Sept 28. The J.C. Penney Days celebrations will be Sept. 26 through Sept. 28. We all had a blast participating in that part of our retreat event last year. She didn't say anything about a Birthday Bash at the same time, but I'm sure MSQC will have some sort of special doings for the J.C. Penney days.

    Little Jean is putting us on the schedule for those dates. She will be pulling together a cost for us. We got a reduced rate last year because we were the first group, but now we will be paying the regular "bed" rate for retreats, depending on how you want to share--share a bed, cheaper, share a room, a bit more, have a room to yourself, that is the highest cost. She schedules through Eventbright, you can check there for the rates of existing retreats, I don't think this is on there yet.

    Please respond as to whether this works for you. As far as I can see, we need to be flexible to fit ourselves into Jenny's ever growing schedule of personal appearances. Either that, or we can continue with our previous plans, but know that there will be no appearance by Jenny if we keep our Sept. 30-Oct. 3 dates.

    p.S. so glad I didn't book that trip to Ireland Sept. 18-26!!

              These are the rates listed for overnight stays at the retreat center. The rooms are dorm style and bathrooms are located at the end of the hallway. I think there are either 6 or 8, so it's easy to grab a shower.

              REGULAR RATE: Twin bed, one night lodging for one person $69.00
              REGULAR RATE: Queen bed, one night lodging (Queen bed can sleep one or two people at the same rate) $119.00

                Sandy, you need to plan for your own meals. We just found stuff for breakfast lunch and shared, and then went out for dinner to neighboring towns or forum members homes. There are more eating options this year than last year, a new restaurant for sandwiches and a bakery with breakfast baked goods.

                They have sewing machines to rent, or you can bring your own.

                      The dates sure work for me. Waiting for my 'roomies' to chime in.

                      it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

                        The dates work for me unless something unexpected comes. I am currently planning on driving back and forth and not staying overnight. Do we know what the is the cost of just coming and sewing for the day?

                            I am trying like crazy to fit this in my schedule, might even rob the kids. It would be great to meet all of you.

                            Auntimern, especially you. I like how you think even though you are for sure tougher than anyone else I know lol

                            Does anyone stay in the downstairs rooms. If I can make this work, i do not want to take away fron those returning guests
