Only 6 more sleeps!

Are you all getting really excited about our retreat next weekend?!?! I know I am sooooooooooooo excited!
Here are some last minute reminders:

1. Remember to bring bedding such as sleeping bag, pillow and sheet (if you want)

2. Slippers are a necessary item, 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. There is a refrigerator that we are able to use, if you want to put anything into it such as drinks, etc.

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) and your basics like a paper cutter, scoring tool, bone folder and the like.

5. The boat leaves Deep Cove at 4:15p.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. Once in Deep Cove, you will see the water ahead of you. Turn right when you reach the end of the road, and you will see a road to the left, that you can drive down to the dock ramp. Unload your stuff ( about three cars will fit there at one time). Then you can drive back up and find parking along the road. I will give you ideas of where to park. 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 lots of us, and we will have lots of hands to help 'shlepp' the stuff down the ramp and then back up the hill again to the cropping space! Let's hope the tide is high!!!
We've never had any problems with parking in the four times we've had the retreat. Don't worry!

6. Try not to bring everything- we have to fit 30 people and all our supplies into the same boat as last year!)

7. Try to eat before you come- we will not have dinner at the retreat Friday night, we will have a warm snack around 8:00 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.

That's about all.... any questions, please e-mail me. I will be happy to answer them for you! Can't wait to see you all there!!!!
