2019 AWSG – Winter Weekend to Unwind
Come and hang with your fiber friends for a relaxing weekend. In addition to good company, there will be time to spin, weave, create or enjoy the outdoors. We will also have 2 fun activities, some classes and a shared Saturday dinner.
Our theme this year is “unwind”. With relaxing in mind, we are keeping things simple. Our Sat evening meal will be catered by the camp. This increased the cost to participants by $10. Someone will cook for you. You will not have to bring/prepare food for the Saturday evening meal or clean up and do dishes afterwards! We are limiting the group to 35 people so Langley hall does not feel crowded.
The camp is in the Big Lake area. Roads in winter are well maintained, but if you prefer not to drive we can help coordinate carpooling. The facilities are better suited for adult comforts than our previous location.
We will have a snack and registration table at Langley. It is the first building you will see with a large covered entry so you can unload out of the elements. When checking in, please sign up on our volunteer list. We need to vacuum/sweep and pull bedding before leaving. Since many hands make for easy work, we will divide up the tasks into less than 15-minute chunks.
Langley hall: Most of the activity will be in Langley hall. The gathering room is on the ground floor. There is a coffee bar type kitchen here with a refrigerator and microwave. All meals except Saturday evening will be here. There is a single public restroom. There are motel style rooms are on the ground and second floor. Most rooms have 2 twin beds. We have 2 rooms with a queen bed that can be rented as single occupancy at a higher rate. All rooms have their own sink, toilet and shower. Bedding and towels are provided. If you want more than one blanket and pillow, bring them from home.
Dry Cabins: The cabins will have no more than 4 people per side. The cabins are well heated and insulated. The beds are regulation twins. The cabins are separated into 2 sides by a solid wall with a door. Each side has its own heater and an exterior door. No one will be in top bunks. These cabins are in frequent use over the winter. You will need to bring your own bedding (towels, pillows, sleeping bag or sheets/blankets) and a flashlight. The shower building is also well heated and has plenty of hot water. Each of the four shower/changing stalls have a curtain for privacy.
Sharing a room with 2 twin beds or 1 queen bed in Langley is $160 per person for the whole weekend.
A queen bedroom to yourself is $220.
A twin bed in a dry cabin is $95.
Saturday only, includes dinner, is $60.

Food: Langley hall has a refrigerator, microwave and full coffee/tea service. The Dining Hall has the same for the convenience of people staying in the cabins. We will be supplying disposable plates, bowls and cutlery so no one has to wash dishes. While the dining hall is available for use the commercial kitchen area is NOT available to use.
We recommend you bring food that is easy to heat and serve for all your individual meals.
Saturday evening we will have a group meal together in the dining hall. The catered meal is pasta with either a red sauce with meat or alfredo, chicken breast optional. In addition, we will have sides of sautéed zucchini with onions, garlic bread sticks and salad bar. Dessert is also included.
Classes: We will email a SignUpGenius link to registered guests for class information and registration.
