Let me know if you want to go to one or both workshops. To make matters a bit more confusing, we probably will behaving a 2 p.m. workshop as well -- Digital Storytelling.

I wonder how much those concert tickets cost. If it's too much and we don't want to go to Montreal, than we should go to this. Maybe PocketChange can come too?

Special's picture

Duckie was posing a speculative question. Who isn't pocketchange? it's a point we'd all do well to consider- if we are all pocketchange then who is the papermoney and who's hand is dealing us out?

I believe those kinds of questions are the ones that belong in the comments on YWP.

Ok

starmo93's picture

gg, I already talked to her (if you are talking about babbit) and we might have like four Rutland people going in total, but i'm not sure. It's basically up to my mom, but i will find a way. We mentioned something about carpooling, but i will talk to them more. I will be there though.

They say that you know u r in love when your happiness depends on another's... but what if my happiness depends on everyone's?

Oh...

NonSequitur's picture

That weekend, I have an (overnight) cast party the night before and a function in Montpelier the night after.

Mes parents want me to choose.

On one hand, I'll be in other plays...but I loved THIS one, and I want to see it off.

There is absolutely no way I can NOT go to the thing in Montpelier, and besides, I want to go to that, too...

And of course there's no way I'm not going to this.

What should I do?

If possible, I will be there

If possible, I will be there the whole time, but it's a pretty big committment and I have a play that day and I'm not sure when it will be. Sign me up for the last two at least, and if possible I will be at the first. I'll tell you when I know.

I suppose I should be signed up for all three.

Will be there definately for the reading.

I may have a timeline to leave to get to something that night. About how long will the final gathering be? And if I can only be there for about the first half hour of it, should I still tell you I'll be there?

Flier?

Hi,

Your information about the upcoming workshops and celebration mentions that there's a flier attached, but I can't find it. I'd like to print it for a student whose work is included. Please help me find it.

Thanks,

Eve

Flyer for workshop

You can find the workshop/celebration flyer at the bottom of the signup form. Go all the way to the bottom below the "submit" button and you'll see a box with a pdf file name in it. Click on that and you'll see the flyer.

Thanks for helping to spread the word.

Flyer--still didn't find

Hi,

Thanks for your instructions, but there is no link under the submit button on the sign-up form page, unless you scroll all the way down to the bottom under sponsors, where there are links to information about the Vermont Business Roundtable but not to any kind of flyer about the Nov. 22 celebration. I've signed up, and since the deadline is today, Sunday, I will call my student's family to give them the news and information based on what I can find on the website.

Thanks anyway,

Eve

I think I'm going. I wasn't

I think I'm going. I wasn't sure, but I was talking to a teacher and she made me really want to come...

How long do you think the celebration will last? I have to be somewhere around 6:30-7 that Saturday. I might be able to get out of it if the party goes longer. But it would be helpful to know how long I should be expecting to stay.

Thanks.

yes

arrive whenever . . .

. . . you want. If you want to come for the workshops, the schedule is at the top of this page. You can sign up by filling out the form that's got a link up there too.

If you want to come just for the celebration, that will start at 5:00 and should be over at around 6-6:30.

ahhh I can't go!

I don't know if it worked, though, it came back with this red thing at the top that said something like "you've selected the maximum options" or something.

It worked. Look forward to seeing you - and all the others who have signed up - there.
