RQ Turns 10 Retreat @ Farmstead Inn Shipshewana
We are still accepting reservations for our upcoming RQ Turns 10 Retreat at Farmstead Inn in Shipshewana during July! You can read more information about this exciting event on the RQ website.
Here are a few updates for those already planning to attend:
*If you have paid your $25.00 to RQ, but not yet made reservations with the Farmstead Inn, please do so! We have just added another 20 rooms to the RQ block for the retreat.
*The Farmstead Inn must know the names of all people in your room. People who are not registered with the Farmstead Inn will not receive breakfast or goody bags as that is what is used for the count. If you’ve added people, be sure to call and give the Farmstead Inn their names.
*If you have made room reservations at the Farmstead Inn but have not sent or called in your registration with RQ, you are NOT considered registered for the retreat! Please be sure you and ALL those in your room have registered. We are the cutoff point when the retreat is full, and if you don’t have your name in by then, you will be on a waiting list. We are currently half full.
*We have created a Facebook Group to share information with those who are registered to attend the retreat. If you don’t have Facebook, please see if someone in your room can keep you updated. (If that doesn’t work, just let us know and we will make sure you have all pertinent information.) We thought this would be a good place to look for ride or room sharing too if you are interested in that. Please click the following link and request to join the RQ Turns 10 Retreat at Farmstead Inn Group.
