Yeah, yeah - we know ... you want
to come here and do nothing but eat, sleep & fiddle! Right? Well, we
understand that. However ... the instructors need a little time
off to preserve their own sanity!
So ... what are you going to do, while
your instructors refuse to instruct?
Bring a rowboat or a canoe ... or, at least, make
friends with someone who did bring one! (Don't forget the lifejackets.)
Gavin Lake is terrific for paddling ... and there's even a beaver damn
that you can portage around.
While you're out on the water (which is stocked
with rainbow trout), you might want to try your hand at fishing ... or,
at least, "flogging the water". (You fishermen know what
I mean. Heh, heh.)
There's lots of room to throw things (except tantrums).
Bring a Frisbee, a softball & glove, a football, badminton rackets
& bird ... or even a croquet set. (Um ... obviously, this last is not
for throwing. *grin*)
Hmm, let's see ... we're on a lake ... there's
lots of water and a beach ... HEY!!! We can go swimming! Or just lying
on the beach, catchin' some rays. (Bring some sunscreen ... and be sure
you keep those fiddles out of the hot sun!)
There will be Lifeguards on duty at the swimming
One thing everyone seems to comment on is the
friends they've made at the Fiddle 'Treat. So, if there's a break in the
action, why not grab a pen & paper and get that address & 'phone
number written down?! Fiddle friends are forever!!!
In fact, a great place to solidify those new
friendships is around the firepit. (Remember to bring weenies & 'mallows!)
Do you like to play 'Cribbage'? How about 'Go
Fish'? Look, if you bring the cards, you're bound to find another player
or two. (I'm thinking, right now, of a couple of insatiable
Crib players. But I can't mention their names - you'll just have to find
them! Heh, heh, heh.)
And, if - in spite of all this - you simply have
fiddle ... well, rest assured, you can usually find at least one
jam session going on, somewhere, whenever classes are out! And, each evening,
there is an organised group activity like the Evening Concert or the Family
