Ride Sharing

This space is offered to post rides offered and rides wanted to the HFAA Annual Workshop. These can be long distance (Washington, D.C. to Folklore Village, for example) or short (Madison airport to Folklore Village). Most people arrive on Thursday and leave on Sunday, though rides might be possible on the other days of the workshop. To have your offer/request posted, please email us at rides@hfaa.org, telling us where and when the ride is offered/requested. We will post these on the site, with e-mail addresses spelled out. Notice that you will have to put in the proper @ sign where we have simply written "(at)"  and a "." where we have written (dot). This will help protect our listers from receiving spam. If you see something that works for you, please contact that person directly. PLEASE, let us know when your space/need is filled so we can take you off the board.

Note: The buses have varying stops in Madison. You can coordinate with your ride to make sure you meet up at the right place! 

We hope that this method will enable you to attend the HFAA Annual Workshop or help others come to the Workshop.

See you there!
