What would a Family History Writers’ Retreat (FHWR) be if you didn’t retreat with some “old” friends and meet some new people? Not as much fun, that is for sure. If you are working hard during the day on your writing project, then shouldn’t the night time be fun? So we have designed some fun things to do in the evening.
Relaxing with friends by the fireplace will set the tone for the evening adventures. Taking off the chill (yes, it gets chilly in the mountains when the sun goes down) while drinking a great glass of wine is a terrific end to the day. But, wait, there can be more. To the extent you wish to, sharing the progress of your project with others is always a fun thing to do. You will see your own progress and support others if they have a question or are considering options. Your advice will be invaluable to them. You may wish to ask their advice as well.
As a group we will head into town for dinner. Colorado Casual is the level of dress for all occasions.
I have two favorite restaurants–Fiesta Jalisco and my BBQ joint in Dillon. Frisco restaurants might be on our list as well. All these will be up to the group to decide. We could even order cook-your-own pizza (Nick & Willie’s) and bring it to the condo to prolong the conversation time. the cost of dinner is our personal cost.
After dinner, it’s back to the condo for discussion and dessert. This may take the form of a more formal “presentation” on writing family history by Valerie or a Q & A session, “Pointers for Your Portfolio,” by Jill. We are also prepared to discuss Self-publishing. Topics, if desired, will be decided by attendees.
And, at the end of the day, we can all walk out to the back deck of the condo and see the Milky Way in all it’s glory, a sight we city slickers rarely get to see. Make sure you have the one of the star gazer apps downloaded on your phone before arrival!
Certainly, hiking, outlet mall shopping, touring, etc. are also all possible for you as well.
We look forward to seeing you at the Family History Writers’ Retreat. If you have questions do not hesitate to ask Valerie or me.
Valerie and I certainly hope you will join us. Contact us for more information.
