Four rental houses have been booked for the 2020 YAG.

Two holds 6-8, one holds 8, and the other holds 6. Depending on how the men/women numbers work out, we will assign them accordingly.

There are a couple extra spots open for guys in a pinch.

Total cost per person will be a minimum of $80 for the entire weekend (you can arrive as early as Thursday and leave as late as Monday). If the houses are not full the cost per person will be higher, but considering that hotels in West Chester average $120 PER NIGHT this is still a significant savings.

Houses will be assigned on a first come, first serve basis. NO SMOKING or loud music is permitted at any of the properties.


When planning flights, keep in mind that the airport is about an hour’s drive south of the church. Arriving early on Thursday or Friday is not a problem; there will be people setting up in Helfta Hall and any help is appreciated!

If you are staying at the YAG rental houses, you can arrive on Thursday and leave as late as Monday.

DO NOT book flights out at 8 am on Monday morning! You will be exhausted, our volunteers will be exhausted, and it is not fair or polite to ask them to get up at 5 am to take you to the airport that early.


If you are flying to Cincinnati and WILL NOT be getting a rental car, you need to REPLY IMMEDIATELY to emails sent by the YAGermeister requesting your flight information. If we do not know when you will be there and you call us at the last minute we WILL NOT come to get you, and you will have to get an Uber to bring you to the church.

We coordinate pickup and drop-off at the Cincinnati-Covington (CVG) airport as much as is possible, but our drivers are all volunteers so this service is entirely dependent upon their generosity and free time.

Pickups will be at the Level 2 Baggage Claim. We may have our shuttle people carry signs but they will only be there for limited times so do not expect that you can arrive out of the blue and automatically get a ride to St. Gertrude’s.
