OK, the Zion FREE Workshop is set in concrete!
It will take place in Zion from Monday January2 through Friday, January 6.
It appears that we will be a good size group and as usual we should all have a great time!
If you have not notified me that you want to participate please do so ASAP!
I have lost count of how many Free Workshops we have had by now - my guess is 15 or 16?
During 2006 we will have 3 Free Workshops, the first one in Zion in January. The next Free Workshop will (as usual) take place in Joshua Tree National Park January 27-28-29. The last Free Workshop of the year in October is still up for grabs! Owens Valley? Yosemite? Or? If you have ideas for a great location please email me!
You need to sign up right away!!!
The Workshop / Gettogether is filling fast.
Start 2006 in one of the most inspiring places on Earth: ZION!

How about holding some in the Northeast?

I am thinking Northeast since I live here and would rather not fly/drive. I am pretty sure Florida would also function as a great destination.
Info for the Pioneer Lodge
Hi -- I know that you want to use the thread. However -- I need to make sure I get this info to some specific folks that demonstrated there interest in staying at the Pioneer Lodge. Unfortunately -- it doesn't look like there will really be a break unless we get up to twelve rooms -- in which case we would get a room for free. Additionally -- it appears that they will be upgrading the cheaper rooms during this time -- and so only deluxe rooms will be available at $89.
I won't really be able to make reservations for anyone -- because they will want your credit card to hold the room. So if you want to stay there -- please make your own reservation, and let them know you are in the Free Zion Workshop. Since only 3 or 4 people were interested -- I doubt that we will reach the 12 room barrier. I personally have enjoyed my stays there -- and will perhaps stay there again. I like the pie the best.
It might be interesting to find out if one of the bigger hotels might give us a break -- this could be really good if they also have a meeting room.
The Best Western has rooms for $65. I do know of a big house with 9 bedrooms that can be rented for that time for $250 a night.

Let's see what I've got in the magic trash can for Mateo!
I think Claire meant for this originally to go to all of us -- So I am responding.
Hi -- I saw a photo I believe you shot for Sunset Garden -- nice work.
I never cared that much -- last time I was in Springdale with Per we stayed at some rv place and the guy was kind of insulting (to me- but not anyone else as far as I know)-- so I moved down the street to the pioneer. It's a long story. I'd rather stay somewhere with good darkrooms. I do like the pie however.
The El Rio is run by John -- and he has just ten rooms -- which are $39 each -- so he has the deal.. He doesn't have any meeting facilities but the number is
995 Zion Park Blvd
I think that he might be the cheapest in town
Claire also points out a free campground -- but I'll be staying indoors -- since it was a bit cold last year at New Years time. See Below.

Why don't you try the Del Rio Motel in Springdale? I stayed there several years ago and the room was $39.00--and it was clean and comfortable. For those of you who don't know this, there is a free camping area along the Virgin River between the towns of Virgin and Rockville. Ask at the Zion Visitors' Center and they will give you directions.
Just a brief note abot the best western -- that may be a very good choice because they may have a meeting room as well -- and frankly -- if it rains -- we're going to need some indoor space. -- they are big enough to handle the whole group and possibly give us a discount

Guess what those are?
