ADF Rocky Mountain Retreat 2016
Is this a camping retreat? No, this is an in-town non-camping retreat which will be held at three locations in south Denver, Colorado.
If I am coming from out of town, will I need to make motel reservations separately? Yes, you will need to make motel / hotel reservations separately; there is no provision for overnight stays at our sites.
What happens on the three days of the event? Friday evening will be a hospitality / bardic & drumming circle for preregistered participants. Saturday will be an all-day event of presentations and workshops; if you have not prepaid, you can pay at the door ($40). Sunday morning we will have a public closing ritual which will be open to everyone.
What is the schedule? Friday evening's gathering will start at 6 pm and probably run until about 10 pm; Saturday's event will run from 8 am to 7 pm; Sunday's ritual will start at 10 am.
Is this event limited to ADF members only? No, all folk of good will are welcome; Saturday's program, however, will be mostly ADF-centric. However, people from other traditions are encouraged to attend in order to find out more about us!
What is your price structure? Preregistration with prepayment - $30 per person; at the door, $40 per person. All payments are non-refundable.
What is the cut-off date for prepayment in order to get the reduced rate? Prepayment must be received by October 8th and should be mailed by October 1st. We will also be accepting prepayments at Denver Pagan Pride Day (August 28th) and at our Autumn Equinox ritual (September 25th at Overland Pond Park, Denver, CO). We should be able to accept electronic payments as well as cash at these two events.
Where will the event be held? Friday evening's get-together will be at a private residence in south Denver. Saturday's event will be at the Kirk of Bonnie Brae, 1201 S Steele Street, also in south Denver. Sunday morning's closing ritual will be held at Ruby Hill Park in southwest Denver.
How do I find Friday night's location? If you preregister, we will send you the information by email shortly before the event.
Will you be providing transportation from Denver International Airport? No, we cannot provide airport pick ups, but there are plenty of public transportation alternatives available. Our main site is approximately 30 minutes from DIA.
Are your sites handicapped accessible? Saturday's meeting site and Sunday's public ritual are both handicapped accessible. Friday evening's site is a private home and not strictly handicapped accessible, but assistance would be provided.
Are children allowed? And if so, do you have family rates? Although children are allowed, young children may find Saturday's presentations rather long and boring. There will be no provision for separate childcare at this event. Sunday's open ritual, however, should be more child-friendly. There are no family rates; children 12 and under may attend Saturday for free; children 13 and up would pay full price.
