DULCIMERS and RECREATION UNLIMITED
THE WEATHER In moving the festival from
mid-March to mid to late April, we are looking at moderating
weather. Gone are the worries of ice, although, there may be
some snowflakes in the air. We look for SPRING TIME
conditions. The beautiful campus will be blossoming and
accessible to us with walking trails, possibilities of outdoor
A Blast from the Past:
The Blizzard of 2008 is legendary ... remembered fondly by many
folks as challenging yet exciting and will never be forgotten and,
hopefully, never repeated. Many friendships were forged that
year as everybody helped each other and pitched in to make things
work and keep the festival going. RU's Maintenance Department
proved to be just the best! A standing ovation by all as
they took a break said it all.
FACILITY As you can see, RU's campus is
quite spread out and that fact has become an increasing
consideration in the BDF planning process. With the use of golf carts and wagons, the
move-in process has become so much easier with a lot of fun mixed
into the process. We thank Donnie for making sure all is ready
and that the other volunteers helping, know what to do.
Do check out the information on RU's sleeping cabins. It's amazing to see groups of friends 'make their nests' and create HOME for four days. It's also amazing to watch folks make room for one more person ... a new face. There are no words to express how wonderful this is. Newbies won't feel that way for long.
2019 became the first year for us to be able to use RU's newest
housing option, the Greif House.
