Letters to the editor : NYS Sheep and Wool Festival participant concern about lodging

August 24,2012

It appears that the NYS Sheep and Wool festival has many Workshops and people come from all over the country to attend October 18-21, 2012 at the fairgrounds.. and there doesn’t appear to be enough local hotel/motel//B&B options. I wonder if the townspeople (readers of this blog) know about http://couchsurfing.org. If not, perhaps you can host some interesting out-of-towner fiber lovers (knitters, etc) for a few days by finding them there. It’s a match making site for travelers and hosts.

Many of you have spare rooms and perhaps hosted a reporter or 2 during the Clinton Marriage thing… Well this website is a well-organized method of hosting and being hosted during your own travels… Etiquette and protocol are all on the website. There’s a Mid-Hudson Valley group…. http://www.couchsurfing.org/group.html?gid=17220 Thanks for helping host visitors to Rhinebeck and beyond! I know that right now, people are trying to book places to stay and have to go 30+ miles away. This is another solution.

Hope it works out for everyone.

Thank You, David
