Hi Gathering attendees! We’re so excited to see you on Monday. We’ve been made aware of some confusion regarding our start time. The gathering officially starts at 2:30pm, but we’d like everyone to get signed in and starting to settle around 2pm. We found something that had conflicting information…our apologies. If you can’t make it by 2pm on Monday, we understand. Our table hosts will catch you up when you get there!
Also, in case you missed it…this email went out today:
Bring a game along!
Hopefully you’ll be joining us for the evening fun on Monday, the 11th. Plan to pack your favorite game as this will be our night of connecting, having fun, and eating ice cream! Any type of game will do…board game, outdoor games, cards, whatever. Just remember. What happens at Gathering @ the Grove should likely stay at Gathering @ the Grove J.
Dress at Gathering @ the Grove is always very casual. Remember that we are staying at a state park. Plan to pack comfy clothes and shoes if you want to take advantage of any of the fun outdoor activities. Layers would be helpful as well, since we live in Ohio. Because we are an informal environment, be sure to leave your suit and title at home!
Check-in when you arrive
Hotel – If you’re staying overnight, be sure to bring a credit card with you for check-in. You can check-in to your rooms at 3pm.

Some of you let us know you want to participate…but it’s not too late if you haven’t! We’ve got supplies on hand at the Gathering for you to create a poster to display highlights of your work in the last year. Our Gallery Walk will happen on Tuesday late morning. If you’re interested, there will be a short chat on Monday at 5pm.
All of your meals will be provided at deer creek, except for Monday night. We’ll be having an ice cream bar, but no other food. There is a restaurant in the hotel.
Don’t forget about the silent auction! We’ll have some great items available, and all the proceeds go to our scholarship fun. Be sure to bring cash, check, or credit card!
Any other questions?
We’re excited to see you very soon!
