WinShape Retreat--April 26 & 27

We trust the following will help you find your way and enjoy your time at WinShape Retreat:

  • WinShape Retreat is a relaxed and walkable campus.  (Comfortable shoes are recommended.) Please let us know if you need assistance traversing from the parking lot to the Conference Hall. Also note, the campus is intentionally “unplugged”—there are no televisions in the rooms.  (This might be the perfect time to enjoy a good read after the Firebowl Break.)
  • Upon arrival at noon you will be served lunch in the Great Hall.
  • The Annual Membership meeting is scheduled in the Conference Hall at 1:00pm.
  • Check-in time for your overnight room is at the Grand Chalet between 5:00-5:30pm.
  • You will notice on the agenda free time Tuesday evening between 6:30-8:00pm. During this time WinShape Homes graciously offers a tour of the Bowlings home. For first-timers, please be sure to add this to your schedule. Vans will pick up after dinner on the back side of the Conference Hall.  Those who have previously toured the home are welcome to revisit the Bowlings.
  • The Firebowl Break is a lovely early evening outdoor event set up around fire pits beginning at 8:00pm—refreshments will be served.
