2016 Southeast Men's Knitting Retreat Registration
UPDATE: As of right now registration for the 2 cabins is full. I am in touch with the Retreat center for overflow into bunk houses. They are working up a price for me and I will let folks know asap. Some of the guys (who asked for private rooms) may be willing to share. That would free up additional rooms.
As of now, we're starting a waiting list for rooms/beds that open up and become available. Please fill out the web form to the right to notify us that you'd like to be registered if spaces open up.
A hearty southern greeting to the male knitters of the Southeast! I think I finally am beginning to figure this whole thing out so....It’s time to start planning the Southeast Men’s Knitting Retreat 2016 !!!
We are moving back to Asbury Hills Retreat Center in Cleveland, SC (about 30 minutes north of Greenville). We are continuing the tradition of using Veteran’s day as our time to get together. This year’s retreat will be Thursday, November 10th through Sunday, November 13th.
We also have several possible classes in mind for this year including (but not limited to):
I’ve confirmed this weekend with Susan at Asbury Hills and they are very excited to have us back. We will either be in Creekside and/ or Batson depending on the number of attendees. I would like to increase our numbers this year as there is room for up to 28 attendees in Batson & Creekside combined. There are a very limited number of private rooms available
on a first come first served basis. I also need a show of hand/commitment before I can make a deposit on the Reservation. The deposit and contract are due on May 30th. The deposit total is $1131.00. I can bill you for a deposit to hold your spot ($100.00) or you can pay in full.
Dates: Thursday, November 10 (1 pm-ish) - Sunday, November 13 (1 pm-ish)
Cost: Here’s the fee/price breakdown per person:
$250.00 housing for 2 day/3 nights (Thurs dinner through Sunday lunch includes 7 meals, LINENS, and retreat fees!!!)
Add $50 for private room.
$250.00(sharing)($300.00 private room) GRAND TOTAL
Check-In Time is 1 pm(ish) (11/10/2016), Check-Out Time is 1 pm(ish) (11/13/2016).
There must be at least 8 sign up and pay to book reservation (for 1 building), then at least 12 more for the second building. Private rooms will go fast and sharing is economical and appreciated.
There will be ABSOLUTELY no refunds, once we reach the 30 Day mark (10/10). In the past if someone has not been able to attend, I have been able to refund money or they graciously donated their spot to someone. This year being on the ball with reservation and fees, I am not sure I would be able to refund full amount within the 30 days.
I have given Asbury Hills our request for reservation but we don’t officially have the reservation until I make the deposit. I’ll be signing the contract by the end of May, 2016. I need to be able to book the reservation soon so no one else books the spot. The sooner you can reserve and make your payment, the sooner I can sign the contract. If you’re interested in going, please let me know and I’ll send you an invoice via PayPal.
I look forward to seeing all your faces for this year’s retreat! Please share this with anyone
