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 beach towels. All rooms will have sheets and bath towels.
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 highly 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. I do not maintain a wait list because it is rarely practical to fill a spot close to the week. Some companies folks have used are Allianz, Travel Guard and World Nomads.
We recommend that folks come in "early" - meaning Saturday - if possible. It is an extra $60 for a single participant and $80 for a participant with a guest/spouse. Our form is here: https://sb-early.paperform.co/
