It’s time to sign-up for the 2015 KANG Navasota Retreat. It will be held at Camp Allen in Navasota, Texas, on February 20-22. The total cost for the retreat is $190. You can pay half now as a down payment. The final amount is due by February 14, 2015. Please note, there is no partial payment if you can only be at the retreat for part of the time.
Additionally, there will be fewer spots this year than in years past. So get your registration in early. All registrations MUST be postmarked no earlier than November first. Download a registration form.
So, what can you expect on the retreat? It’s a fun, relaxing weekend where KANG members can kick back and knit/crochet/weave/spin to their hearts content! There is no set schedule or any classes or programs. However, in years past many of us have ventured up to WC Mercantile in Navasota on Saturday morning. And on Saturday evening, we’ve had a show & share. And there may even be a little surprise on Saturday night…
All meals starting with dinner Friday night through breakfast Sunday morning are provided by the staff. For those with food allergies, please contact Camp Allen directly. The website for Camp Allen is www.campallen.org. I can tell you from personal experience that the meals are hearty. You might need to take a hike through the woods to walk off the pounds you’ll be putting on. Bring your flashlight for a midnight hike, though it’s not needed to get from the hotel to the conference center.
All rooms are double occupancy. You can request a specific roommate, or meet somebody new. The rooms are standard hotel rooms, so bring your own toothpaste and hairbrush.
Our gatherings during the day are held in a conference room with chairs and tables provided. In evenings we have been known to take over the rocking chairs around the fireplace. The hotel rooms and conference center are handicap accessible.
Lastly, I know some of y’all want to bring your friends and/or spouses. However, the retreat is only for members. So just pass them a membership form and have them sign up!
If you have any additional questions, please ask! You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email Angela Fryers (the retreat coordinator) at email@example.com.
See ya’ll at Camp Allen!!!
