Hello Cardmakers and Scrapbookers attending the retreat!

Well, only three more sleeps until the retreat! I hope you are all looking forward to our second annual retreat as much as I am!!!

I just wanted to send some last minute reminders about our upcoming retreat:

1. Remember to bring bedding (sleeping bag, pillow and sheet if you want)
2. Slippers are great, since we have to take our shoes off at the hall where we will be scrapbooking.
3. All our meals will be included, but you are encouraged to bring some snacks for late night scrapbooking, or just to munch on throughout the day.
4. If you are taking a workshop, you will have to supply your own adhesive for the project (I would recommend bringing glue sticks, photo squares, and or liquid fast dry adhesive, snail adhesive, if you want- basically your favourite adhesive).
5. The boat leaves Deep Cove at 6:00p.m. Give yourself plenty of time to drive through rush-hour traffic to Deep Cove, and get there about 30 minutes before the boat leaves. You can drive your car down to the top of the dock ramp, and unload your stuff ( about three cars will fit there at one time). Try not to bring everything- we have to fit 27 people and all our supplies into the same boat as last year!)
6. You will have to find parking in Deep Cove. The camp recommends finding a residential side street, since the park parking lot does not allow overnight parking. So you will have to unload your stuff, and park your cars. Don't worry- there will be 27 of us, and we will have lots of hands to help 'shlepp' the stuff down the ramp! Let's hope the tide is high!!!
7. Try to eat before you come- we will not have dinner at the retreat Friday night, we will have a warm snack around 9:00 p.m.
8. If you want to bring some music cd's you can- we will have access to a radio throughout the day, and we'll plug in some chick flicks to keep us company during the night.

Here are the directions to the Government Dock:
Camp Jubilee Retreat & Conference Centre is a short 30 minute boat ride from the government dock in
Deep Cove (North Vancouver, BC).
To get there:
Go North over the Ironworkers Memorial Bridge
Take the 1st exit Eastbound onto Dollarton Highway
Continue East until Dollarton Highway becomes Deep Cove Road
Finally Deep Cove Road will become Gallant Ave.
The Government Dock is located between
Deep Cove Canoe & Kayak and Panorama Park. Day Parking is available at Panorama Park. Overnight parking is on residential side streets.
If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to contact me! Until then! Happy Packing and see you all on Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
-your happy retreat co-ordinator
