Dianne..I registered WAY back on March 12. Have not received anything on upcoming workshop selection, etc.?
You should have received a confirmation right after you registered. Workshops have just today been posted on the web site and you'll receive your email to make selections probably next week. You can see the individual workshop details and who the presenter is by clicking on the +sign next to the workshop. You can make your selections - but remember that you can change your mind once you get to Camp. The selections help us to determine the size of the room each workshop needs to be in, but we always allow Campers to change their mind ... even once you've entered a workshop at Camp.
Here's the links to see the workshop info:
This the first time I'm attending a Camp Widow. I was planning to take an uber to the hotel Marquis but reading through the blog, it sounds like there's a problem with that. How should I coordinate a ride from the airport?
I've used Super Shuttle when traveling alone. Can schedule and reserve online. Shows $18 for round trip airport/hotel in a shared van online. https://www.supershuttle.com/locations/sandiegosan/
If you're traveling with someone, it ends up being cheaper to share a taxi.
Most airports make it harder to catch Uber than take a taxi. Shuttles are generally not too bad to get to. I base what I use on how much luggage I'm traveling with. If I'm alone and have a lot of suitcases, I'll just get in the taxi line because it's easier. Here's a link to where you need to go to catch your Uber ride at San Diego airport: https://www.uber.com/airports/san/
We'd love to have you join us, Pathfinder. You can decide right up to the day Camp starts - especially if you're not planning to stay in the host hotel (our room block usually sells out). Hope to meet you there.
I think I remember in the past that you recommended an online site for buying dresses. Do you still have that info and do you still recommend them? Also, the theme this year is masquerade. Does that mean we should wear something exotic :)
