NEFFA, Housing

April 25th, 2006

Much fun at NEFFA. Lots of people. There were 12 of us down from Swat and staying in Medford, resulting in 26 people in the house Saturday night. Driving wasn't as bad as I expected, though it would be nice for the future to have additional van certified people. I danced a decent amount more than in the past, and played in the festival orchestra with Laurie. I still want to try and have there be some ML Breakfast Room contras next year, and I think Laurie and I would be able to play well enough. Allison needs to learn to call.

Finances also worked out ok. The ending amounts were:

expense van car total
tolls $26.20 $26.80 $53.00
gas $129.00 $80.50 $209.50
rental $138.00 $0.00 $138.00
totals $293.20 107.3 $400.60

This works out to $31 per person who went, or $27 per person who told me they were coming. For full cars, if we're renting, it looks like the van is the most efficient. With 12 people it would come to $24 apiece. That's not bad. And I think David German would take a turn driving next year.

Also, housing has happened. Me and David German have the big room of the Quint, Alex George and Chris Green have the small room, and Julia has the single. Laurie is across the hall in a barn double, while above us David Chudziki and Lucas, and Katie and Allison have the two two-room doubles. Other people have gotten rooms in ML too. So nice to have all that stress over with, even though it was mostly other people's stress.
