The Travel, Trips and Retreats Committee has planned another event for MKG members! Come and join us from March 16-18 for a weekend of knitting in a cozy lodge atmosphere just north of Brainerd at beautiful Knutson Point Retreat Center!
The retreat runs from Friday evening, March 16, through Sunday morning on March 18. The schedule (what schedule?!) is as action-packed or action-free as you want it to be. There will, of course, be knitting, eating, and sleeping.
The cost is $130 and includes lodging and 5 meals.
simply download and print out the PDF of the registration form, which is available here.
Complete the form and make out a check.
Mail the completed form and a check for the complete amount to the address on the form via US mail.
Your registration, with payment, must be postmarked before January 20, 2012. Any registrations postmarked after these dates will be processed only if there are still spaces available.
Once you're signed up for the event, you'll receive an email with a map and all the details about the weekend.
The registration form for the Great Guild Getaway is available for download in PDF format. To view the PDF file you will need the Adobe Acrobat Reader, which you can download and install from the button on the right.
Everyone must register for classes online, even those who will be paying by check or cash.
If you want your registration confirmed instantly, get out your Visa, Discover, or MasterCard, or set up a Paypal account. We don't accept American Express.
If you pay by check, we'll hold your place in class for two weeks after you register. Once we receive your check, your registration will be confirmed. If we do not receive your check within two weeks, your place in class will be forfeited.
