Our hope was to inspire, challenge and motivate our attendees and give them useful tools to help spread the "CGS Gourd Glow" and fulfill the CGS mission with our members, our regional gourd groups and the public, in a fun and relaxed setting.

This is an All Inclusive three day, three night Package. All Guests includes: Room, and 8 meals.

FOOD SERVICE:  Unless otherwise specified, meals are served buffet style at 8:00 a.m., 12:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.  ECCO is unable to handle special diets, but will make every effort to accommodate vegetarians with advance notice in writing.  We also request that we be made aware of any food allergies, diabetes, etc.  in writing, with the name of the individual.  It is the responsibility of every individual to monitor their food choices, and provide for their dietary needs.
 
GCS Members will receive: A welcome goodie bag, and several art project kits. We will have a Trading Post with items that the members can bring to sell and trade. CGS Raffle to fund future Retreats. There will be plenty of time to work on your own projects or enjoy the area surrounding ECCO (antique shops, Yosemite National Park is a short drive away).
