Is everyone getting as excited as I am about the retreat? I'm really looking forward to seeing familiar faces, meeting new friends and catching up on everyone's photos! We're getting down to the last week and a half before the retreat so I just wanted to touch base with some last minute information.
I want to thank everyone for searching for friends and family to attend this retreat. When I sent out the last email I only had 24 people signed up for the retreat! I can't remember the last time that registrations were so low. But now I am happy to report that we have 40 people registered! Whew.
Here is the list of people that have paid and registered:
There are several of you that are not listed that have checks coming in the mail. I have you on my master list and will check you off once your registration gets to me! (I haven't forgotten about you!)
Now is the time to get your photos ordered, organized and ready for the retreat. Do not wait until Thursday night to order prints! I would also recommend spending this weekend doing some power layouts so you know which direction you plan to take your scrapbooks. It will save you so much time at the retreat if everything is in order BEFORE you get to camp.
You can begin arriving at the camp on Friday afternoon at 12:00 pm. Please do not come earlier as the camp gets spastic about early arrivals.
You may pull up to the Daniel Retreat Center to unload your vehicle. There is a garden wagon available to help you unload you bags. The scrapbooking room is located on ground level and the DRC sleeping rooms are in the basement. There isn't an elevator but you can walk down the hill with the wagon and go through the dining room. Supper will be served Friday night at 5:00 pm. If you plan to arrive late send me an email and I'll make sure to save some soup for you!
I will have water, pop and juice available all weekend. If there are any requests on the variety please let me know. Otherwise I will have the standards of Diet Coke, Coke, 7-up and whatever else falls into my cart!
Snacks are welcome and encouraged! We usually end up with a wonderful variety of goodies to munch on all weekend long. From veggies to cookies everything goes.
I will have a limited supply of Close To My Heart Products available for sale during the weekend. If you need something specific please let me know by Thursday morning. If I place an order by Thursday it should arrive in time for the retreat. Go to www.ctmh.com to view the latest catalog.
Well I think that about wraps it up! I'll be leaving Minnesota for Indiana this Friday and spending the week before the retreat with my family. I'll be checking my email and I might be on Facebook occasionally
so if you need anything please let me know!
Safe travels to everyone and I'll see you at the retreat.
