Because of the nature and size of our event, attendance is currently by invitation only. This year we will have 28 spots (7 small groups of 4 participants).

If you are interested in attending, please contact Iveta Brigis. Once you have RSVPed, we will send you payment details to confirm your spot. We look forward to seeing you there!

Preparation and Directions

Where: A private 13,000 acre private ranch with a lake, mountains, and a vineyard in Healdsburg, CA
How Do I Get There: Drive north from San Francisco for 2 hours. For those flying in, San Francisco Airport (SFO) will likely be cheapest and the best option for carpooling.
November 11-13, 2011 (yes, this begins on 11/11/11)
How Much: $140 per person total, includes 2 nights accomodations and a tasty, healthy salad bar Friday night
What Do I Need to Bring?: Your own food for meals on Saturday and Sunday(and perhaps a little to share with others), athletic clothing, frisbees, a bathing suit (indoor and outdoor towels are provided), cool resources to share, and an open mind. The closest store is 50 minutes away, so please plan ahead and bring everything you'll need.
What are the Accomodations Like?: We have rented the main house and a guest house that sleeps 28 people with a combination of bedrooms with queen and single beds. The house has all the towels, linens, and kitchen equipment we will need, and a huge kitchen that should be fully stocked.
What will the Weather be Like:? Temperatures in the 60s, and the hiking trails could get quite sunny.
Communications: The main house has wireless internet.
