I finally heard from Abby -- our contact at Berea. As we know, the college's schedule was all SNAFU thanks to Covid, and their sessions are running late. Here's what Abby has to say:
"My apologies for the delay. Here is what I am being told. It IS possible for you to come the final week of May if you would like. HOWEVER, I am nervous telling you that is okay because it means you will be in the dorms less than 48 hours after our students depart.
I would feel more comfortable telling you the first week of June, but let me know what you think about that. I know you wanted to keep it in the month of May if possible. Let me know what you’re thinking and we can get you scheduled.
So -- what do you all think about the first weekend in June -- that would be Thursday June 3 through Sunday June 6th? Can we get a consensus in the next day or two?
June first or even second week sounds good to me. Kenh get what you think will work the best.
Let me know as soon as it is firmed up and I'll get a banner ad up on FOTMD.
I have three twelve cup coffee makers. I can bring coffee, and coffee condiments. We can use one for hot water and folks can bring their own chocolate or tea bags or instant decaf. I think keeping it simple will be much easier on the planners. Kenh I would presume whichever dorm there will be kitchen space as last time.
richard: Having some wonderful rain here. The farmers are thankful. Just in time for the soybeans and peanuts. Meteorologist are predicting more than an inch the next 24 hours.
