AIRPORT PICKUP: For those flying, the closest airport is Norfolk (ORF). Before booking travel, please consult with Ken. I will try to arrange airport pickup by one of our workshop attendees or me! For those flying in, linens will be provided. I can also provide instruments, plus stands.
Our houses are the 12 bedroom ocean front house called The Ocean Front Villa at 3556 Sandfiddler Rd Sandbridge, VA 23456 See http://www.sandbridge.com/rental/house.html?ID=224
And right next door is the 5 bedroom Great Escape at 3560 Sandfiddler Rd Sandbridge VA 23456 See http://www.sandbridge.com/rental/house.html?ID=161
The workshop and dinners take place in The Ocean Front Villa.
WIRELESS: The houses are equipped with wireless.
MY CELL NUMBER: 410-746-8387 – it is always on
OCEAN WATER TEMPERATURE: Typically, we should see low-mid 70’s and be fine for swimming.
THE HOT TUB will be OPEN!!
FORECAST: Typical is mid-upper 70’s and possibly low 80’s during the day and 60ish in the evening. Dolphins guaranteed!!
LAUNDRY FACILITIES: All houses are fully equipped with laundry facilities. We will have detergent.
WHAT TO BRING. Most important, besides your instruments, are towels. All rooms will have sheets. I will bring extra towels for those who are flying. Below are room assignments—please review once again. Things may still shuffle once we see all the possibilities. I hope everyone can be flexible.
Some other items to bring are beach towels, binoculars if you like to look at flying things and dolphins, a camera (of course, we have our resident photographer, Laurie). The houses probably have some beach chairs but I can’t say for sure.
For those flying in, I can provide a Rick Thum Professional, 4-5 Dusty Strings D45, 1 Songbird, 1 Overture (16/15), 1 Masterworks Ultralight, 1 Rizzetta Compact (from 1986!), a few Dusty Strings extended range (D670s, D600) and a Masterworks Soprano. All are at least 16/15 instruments. I also have a variety of sitting and standing stands plus music stands. I provide extra "practice" instruments for the second house.
I recommend the purchase of travel insurance to protect your investment. Your deposit is not refundable. In the event that you need to cancel, I will refund a portion of the full fee only if I can fill your spot.
