-will we be able to access the classrooms on Thursday (during registration) to drop off our looms?

-when will we be notified of which residence hall we will be housed in?

-is there wireless available in the suites or lounges?

I see there is free wireless. And the residence hall assignment was on the same letter I rec'd about which class I am in. (I think I was so excited about the class, I stopped reading and just tucked it into my MAFA booklet!)

So I am still wondering if the classrooms will be available for loom drop off on Thursday afternoon? Some of us are bringing more than one loom, and sharing a suite with others who are bringing more than one loom, along with some floor looms and possibly wheels.

Unless dorms are bigger than I remember, I'd rather lug the gear to the classroom Thursday afternoon, since I am going to certainly have to make 2 trips. ;-)

I have rec'd a PM that in the past, the classrooms were accessible for loom drop off during registration.

Another question that represents the face of younger weavers...

-Will the campus fitness center be available to us, and if so, what are the hours?

I am teaching at MAFA and have been told that there will be access to classrooms all day Thursday so you can drop off your loom and equipment. Gettysburg College has always been very good about access with the classrooms. I believe the classrooms will be open into the evening.

Hope to see some Weavolution members at MAFA next week!

I still haven't heard back from the e-mail I sent to MAFA reps, but I did find on the college website that the center is open 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. weekdays, and 7 to 11 weekends. There is also a nice looking pool, and they list "open swim summer hours" 10-1 weekdays. (But you'd probably have to skip lunch to get in your workout.) I am not sure if a room key will grant us access or not. That is what I am waiting to hear. 

So, will I see anyone else in the gym at 6:30 a.m.? (righhtttt...)

Fashion show item and 3 X 5" card with name and description.

Loom tools—like your screwdrivers, packing paper, extra shuttle and bobbins, bobbin winder, wire cutter and pliers, loose weights to fix a broken warp ...others???

Counting down the hours...
