2021 Fall Crop Retreat (Croptoberfest)

 Elizabeth and I are really excited to announce that we WILL have a Fall Crop Retreat (Croptoberfest) this October.

Here are the details I have.  I may update periodically as I have more information.

Dates:

Friday, October 1, 2021 beginning at 4:00 pm and ending on Sunday October 3, 2021 at 4:00 pm.

Location:

The Hampton Inn, Burley, ID

Prices (payment links below):

$160 per person for 2 people to a room

$130 per person for 3 people to a room

$115 per person for 4 people to a room

This fee includes 2 nights’ stay at the Hampton Inn (Burley), plus continental breakfast both mornings, and your own table space for the weekend and other fun goodies from us!

One thing to note:  the fees are slightly less than my Spring Retreat, but that is because you are on your own for the other meals for the weekend.  There are plenty of local restaurants nearby who will even deliver, we’re told.  Or, if you prefer to bring your own food, there are refrigerators in the rooms and you will have access to microwaves.  

The retreat deposit is $50.  The final deadline for the deposit hasn’t been determined yet – it will most likely be mid-August.  As usual, when that time comes, your paid deposit is what holds your spot for the retreat.

The remainder of the retreat fee will be due by September 15, 2021.

Those are all of the details I have at the moment, but I’ll update as soon as there’s more to share.

Payment links:

Hope to see you soon!

Spring Crop Retreat 2021

So glad that we are able to have the Retreat this spring!

Here are the details I have.  I may update periodically as I have more information.

Dates:

Friday, March 5, 2021 at 4:00 pm to Sunday March 7, 2021 at 4:00 pm

Location:

The Ashley Inn, Cascade, ID

Prices are staying the same as last year (payment links below):

$225 per person for 2 people to a room

$185 per person for 3 people to a room

$170 per person for 4 people to a room

This fee includes 2 nights’ stay at the Ashley Inn, continental breakfast both mornings, catered lunch and dinner on Saturday and Subway lunch on Sunday, plus your own table space for the weekend and other fun goodies from us!

The one difference from previous years is this: Karla and I cannot provide dinner on Friday night.  The hotel cannot allow us to bring in food.  So everyone is on their own for Friday night dinner.

What about Masks?

The Ashley Inn told me that Valley County has a mask mandate.  That means when you’re in town, going to the store or a restaurant, you may be required to wear one.  However, the Ashley Inn is private property and when you are inside the hotel, you are not required to wear a mask.  It is recommended, but optional.  They also have hand sanitizer easily available.

I will let you know, I’m high risk and have not had a vaccine, so I will be wearing a mask that weekend.  We also have plenty of room to space ourselves out.

So, since we’re getting started a little late this year, here are the deadlines:

The retreat deposit of $75 must be paid by February 5th to hold your spot.

The remainder of the retreat fee is due by March 1st.

Typically we have to pay the hotel two weeks in advance, but that’s not reasonable this year.  We do, however, have to have the final list to the hotel two weeks before March 5th.  Plus, the hotel has told us that if for some reason we have to cancel, the portion of the fees related to the catered meals will not be refunded, so please understand that if you have an issue, such as the need to quarantine or another emergency, we will work with you to refund as much of the fees as we can, but we cannot refund 100% if it’s after February 19th.

Those are all of the details I have at the moment, but I’ll update as soon as there’s more to share.
