We're Cookin' With Gas Now! (session areas)
Most lunch and dinner meals will be served by Cave Spring's staff in their wonderful dining hall. As with all other campus buildings, it is a separate, stand alone structure with a paved, but not covered, walkway leading to the building.
Meal Schedule (subject to change):
Friday Dinner 6 PM
Sunday Breakfast - 8 AM
Saturday and Sunday breakfasts this year will be served in the dorm lounge area. Breakfasts provided will be continental: coffee, juice, toast bar, fruit, etc.
In addition to regularly scheduled meals, limited refreshments will be provided to attendees. Attendees should feel free to bring their own snacks. Keep in mind that refrigeration is NOT available for general attendees. Plans for 2007, again include access to a microwave in the lounge.
Our group will occupy one of the campus dormitories (housing unit). Our standard accommodations will be six to a carpeted suite (these suites are built to accommodate 12 campers in bunks) with a small room to sleep 2, a larger room to sleep 4 (all lower bunks - use upper for storage), a hallway and a tiled double bathroom (in suite) unless other arrangements are made. Each dorm is equipped with a common room which will be used as our primary session room, & lounge at the back of each building. One suite will be used, like in 2005, for our breakfast/snack room. Dorm common areas are not carpeted. The entire campus is handicap accessible with special dormitory facilities. Dormitories are heated and air conditioned.
ALL linens will be provided by the attendees themselves. Click here for a suggested packing list!
