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. Pease plan for a wide temperature range, even at this time of the year. Remember your feast gear and eating utensils (Styrofoam and other feast gear will not be supplied!).
This site is more primitive than the last so as of yet there are no shower facilities available, but there is a creak that you can bath in so please bring all environmentally friendly bio-degradable soaps and shampoos please.
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: OUR MEAL POLICY: We will provide a soup 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!
