Yeeeeaaaaahhhhhhh! *happy dance!!!*

Dear *******,

Congratulations you are a SOAR Scholarship recipient! The committee was so impressed with your use of the web to further the craft of spinning. We would like to offer you a full scholarship to SOAR 2005 that covers the workshop and retreat fees as well as food and lodging. You will be responsible for travel and any other miscellaneous expenses. We have destroyed your deposit check #269.

I know you will be bursting with questions. Here are a few pertinent details. At SOAR we will announce all of the scholarship winners at the Welcome and Introductions on Sunday and Thursday evenings. After Thursday’s introductions the 2005 Scholarships Recipients and the SOAR Scholarship Committee with have the opportunity to eat together at dinner and ****** SOAR’s photographer will take a few photos. You will be asked to provide a follow-up report to the committee by July 1 of 2006.

A confirmation packet from *****, the SOAR Event Coordinator, will arrive in the mail shortly. Please let either of us know if you have any questions. And again, congratulations, we all look forward to meeting you.

Best Wishes,

Liz

I get to spend a *whole week* playing with fiber. And this scholarship, one of only a couple as far as I know, was given to me by my *peers*. I'm having a serious fiber artist moment *silly grin*

I haven't been this thrilled and excited since I got my grad school acceptance letters to Yale F&ES and Harvard Law.

*tosses in some extra jumping around for good measure* *maybe even a squeal*

I'm terribly pleased (I mean, com'on - how often do you think I jump up off the couch or squeal??), and wish it were November right now.

Thank you thank you thank you so much for the letter you wrote for me - I'm sure that put it right over the top *smile*

I'm looking forward to bringing everything back to the community, and getting those group projects going too. I'll take the lappentoppen with me to make reports from the scene too.
