Registration for the Fall Retreat at the Bertram Inn 2011

Please join us for a weekend of scrapping fun at the 4th Annual

Fall Retreat at the
Bertram Inn
in Aurora, Ohio
with Work in Progress Kits

November 4-6, 2011

You’ll enjoy a whole weekend at a beautiful hotel--The Bertram Inn--eating the most delicious food. All you need to do is bring your scrap supplies, and the rest will be left up to us! Check in time is 2:00pm on Friday, November 4th. You will also be permitted to set up at your table in the ballroom at that time as well, where you’ll have an entire 6 foot table all to yourself. There will be a welcome reception served that evening, and the ballroom will be available day and night for however long you wish to stay. When you decide to retire to your room, you simply leave your table and return to it the next morning! On Saturday, you return to where your table for a full day of more fun! There will be a breakfast buffet served to us right outside our ballroom, a boxed lunch and later on we will also be served an early dinner. I elected to set it up this way so we all have room to enjoy a fondue bar on Saturday evening without feeling the least bit guilty!! You know we need that chocolate to keep the creativity flowing. And just like the previous night, you retire at your leisure and return to the same spot the next day.

On Sunday, you’ll be served breakfast, and check-out time is 2pm. You are free to continue scrapping until 3:00pm in the ballroom. And believe me when I tell you--you won’t want to leave.

Now, if that wasn’t enough--I will be offering a very limited amount of break-out classes on Saturday. Once registration is complete, I will reveal a list of classes and you can decide to partake in these or not--it is simply an option. Most of the break-out classes will be short and sweet, and project related (since Christmas will be on all of our minds by then for sure!). Pre-registration for classes won’t begin until July 1st, and since class size is limited, it will be on a first-come basis. More information will follow. I can’t say enough about the facilities at the Bertram Inn. The food there is what sold me on doing this entire event, and I hope you take a chance and decide to join me for a weekend you won’t soon forget! The hotels also offers a restaurant and a variety of other amenities, and if you’d like to see more of what is available, please visit the website at The Bertram Inn.
