Hi, Carolann!
I am working on persuading DH that we ought to come to Harrisburg again as just one brewpub while waiting for the train to New York wasn't enough...lol
I'm looking at the finances, hope I can make it (will there be anyone he can chat to about craft beer and trains while we are sewing and dancing???)
Hoping very much to see you there, regards, Miss Lisa

Lisa -

There are several other train enthusiasts who come to the Conference. And I'm fairly confident we have several interested in craft breers.

Miss Lisa,

My husband is a craft beer enthusiast and would love to show your husband some of the local craft breweries.  Although, they may need a DD, which can be provided.  In fact, he is currently brewing some amber lager.

Carolann,

As previously communicated, I am so looking forward to this conference.

We have talked about it and as he spent ten days going round the pelopponese (I'm sure I've spelt that wrong) this year on a diesel train we decided that it was entirely reasonable for me to do this by myself next year!
So my first solo foreign trip is coming up.
How do I arrange to share a room at the hotel??? I.e., do I have to name someone to share with? Anyone mind sharing with a slightly mad fifty-year old Englishwoman? X
I'll send the forms in after payday....!!!
We looked at flights and I can get straight to Harrisburg on Wednesday, no trains required (tho I'm sure I can slip one in somewhere!). X
regards,
Miss Lisa

Miss Lisa,

If you're on Facebook, you can post a request for a roommate on the Genteel Arts Facebook page.  I'll also keep your request in mind; there is always someone looking for a roommate.  Smiley  If you want to make a hotel reservation now, make it in your name; you can add your roommate's name(s) at a later date.

I'm looking forward to meeting you!

I really wish I could come, but I'm saving up to fly back for the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Cedar Creek next October.  In addition to visiting my son (in the 6th Ohio Cavalry, who has pretty well recovered from his injuries from getting bucked off his horse last June but is currently looking for a gentler horse!), I'm hoping to do some serious leaf peeping on the Blue Ridge!
 
Fortunately, several of the scheduled classes were presented out here in Oregon City last July, and I was privileged to attend them!  Any time the Academy wants to return to the West Coast, I'm ready and waiting!
