There are quite a few new Blockheads who may not have heard about Billy Dean’s songwriting retreat at his farm, Dean Acres, and since we have just ONE slot open for June 6th, I thought I’d send this info along. First person to pay their initial amount gets the spot.

Go here to sign up via PayPal:

What is the Retreat?

The retreat will be a one day session, offered on two different days, in which you will get the following:
– check in and continental breakfast at Billy’s farm outside Nashville, TN
– morning songwriting session 10am -1pm, 4 groups of 3 people, moderated by Billy
– lunch 1pm-2pm (provided)
– afternoon songwriting session 2pm-5pm, 4 groups of 3 people, moderated by Billy
– dinner 5pm (provided)
– song performance of the eight songs potentially written during the day by those in attendance (bring your own instruments)
– everyone departs with a gift basket
There are slots for twelve people at each one day session.
There are two dates available: Monday June 6th and Tuesday, June 7th. (ONLY ONE SLOT IS LEFT AND THAT IS ON JUNE 6th)
The cost to attend the retreat is $350 per person for a one day session.
– Payments will be taken only through Paypal.
– Your deposit of $175 reserves your spot. Deposits will be taken until all slots are reserved, closing no later than April 1st, 2011.
– The remainder of payment ($175) is due in full by May 1st, 2011. After receipt of final payment, directions to the farm and final details will be provided.
– This is a first come, first serve reservation based upon deposits received. The first twelve deposits received for each day will be reserved a spot.
– You will receive a confirmation email (seperate from Paypal) that your spot is reserved.
– Cost does NOT include transporation or lodging. You are responsible for getting yourself to the farm and for your own lodging offsite.

Hope to sell out this last slot quickly so Billy can finalize all his planning.
