Linking your favorite traveling artists across the globe
And the 20th Anniversary of SerpentStone Gatherings
September 7-9, 2012
At Splendor Hollow, Sevierville, TN
The Harvest of the Dream.
Morristown Area Pagans, on behalf of the Serpent Stone family, invites you to join us for the celebration of a Harvest of 20 years worth of loving labor!
About 20 years ago, Lord Serphant and Lady Rhiannon planted the seeds of SerpentStone. To grow, not a coven, but a family, belonging to the Lord and Lady.
And what diverse seeds were sown!
Some were seeds of encouragement, to help each other to strive for our highest ideas and our highest ethics.
Some were seeds of support, to walk together and work together to grow strong and true along our paths.
There were seeds of new groups, seeds of new gatherings, seeds of new friendships and seeds of new creative ideas!
Although we have come from all walks of life, with many different stories, many have come and found acceptance, love and family.
Now, after the years of labor, we have reached the final Harvest of Serpent Stone in its current form!
The fruit is ripening! The seeds are dispersing!
What a beautiful gift for the Lord and Lady!

PLEASE BRING: tent, sleeping bags, blankets, rain gear and clothing for both warm and cold weather, flashlight, snack foods, ritual gear, drums, and other musical instruments. Plan for a wide temperature range, even at this time of the year, but tending toward the warm side. Remember your feast gear and eating utensils (Styrofoam and other feast gear is no longer supplied!).
If you need to buy things before or during the gathering, please stop at one of the larger stores in town, rather than the small local convenience stores. It keeps the small stores able to supply their regular customers, and keeps the rumors and security hassles down.
NOTE NEW MEAL POLICY: We will provide light fare on Friday night and only supper on Saturday. Any breakfast offerings (ready to serve only) contributed will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please bring pot-luck offerings for the feasts. It need not be prepared unless it is baked. Items such as fresh fruits and veggies, cheese, sour cream, honey, breakfast meats, breads, desserts, and salad items are very much welcomed by our kitchen witch. Please drop these off at the kitchen as soon as possible after arriving, so our Kitchen Witch and helpers can begin working their magic! Having enough for everyone is dependent on everyone bringing something for the kitchen, so please help us have a bountiful feast!

RULES TO LIVE BY
Treat each other with respect, and respect all paths. Take care of those you come with, and respect the land, by leaving your campsite cleaner than you found it. Most of all, HAVE FUN!
No illegal drugs, firearms, drunken behavior, bad attitudes, violence or other inappropriate behaviors will be condoned on the site. We DO enforce the no drugs rule, and the security team has active duty law enforcement officers serving among them, so don't bring them!
No pets. Service dogs only will be permitted at the gathering site. All other pets will be refused at the gate, so please do not bring them.
Please bring: positive attitudes, appropriate gear, and food for the potluck contribution! Please note: We are working very hard to keep our prices low, despite rising costs for sites, food, and fuel. If you can add something, even a dollar or two, to your registration, it may help someone else be able to attend. Community service: Each participant needs to contribute two hours of community service during the gathering. It is basically just a little of the background work that lets a gathering happen, and may include helping out with registration, food preparation, heralding workshops or rituals, helping with the site, or cleanup. It's fun, and a great way to get to know folks better!
An email confirming your registration and giving directions to the site will be sent about a week before the gathering if we have received your completed pre-registration form and your payment.
