The retreat begins Thursday night at 6:30pm. Please plan to arrive no earlier than 4pm and no later than 6:30pm if you’ll be joining us for dinner.

Dinner will be served at 6:30pm and our first session will be at 7:30pm Thursday night. (PLEASE: if you can make it, plan to be there for our first session at 7:30pm, if you won’t make it for dinner, you’ll need to pick up dinner on the way!)


We’ll all be carpooling to the cabin since all parking spaces are taken. There are only 7 cars available, so make sure you sign up to ride with a group! In the carpool spreadsheet, find a car with available spots, note the meeting time, and add your name!


We’ll be ordering t-shirts for all men attending the retreat, so take 10 seconds and let us know your t-shirt size. Ordering closes Monday, May 6th at 6pm!
