Since we can't have a rennie New Year's gathering at Hawkwood, Lark
invites you to share the enjoyment of a rennie New Year's party at her
home. I am the Point of Contact for this gathering.
You must contact Lark for specific directions to her home. Her phone
number is: 903-989-2117. You can e-mail Lark at:
Please pre-cook sausages and links and anything else you bring.
We ask you to contribute $5.00 to go toward the cost of contracting a
few privies. This fee will greatly assist Lark (and also the rest of us
who'll need to use the privies).
Lark lives in a DRY county. You must purchase enough spirits before you
arrive at Lark's. If not, you will have to drive at least 20 minutes
away to find a liquor store.
Arie and I will arrive at Lark's Nest late morning on Friday 27
December. We will set up 2 EZ-UP canopies on Lark's patio for the
Griffin has volunteered to do breakfast with all the fixings on Sunday,
There is plenty of room for tent camping and or sleeping in your
vehicle. It is highly recommended you do not bring your RV. RVs would
take up far too much space on Lark's pasture.
Lark has a HOT TUB. If you plan to use her hot tub you must bring your
own towels. Lark does not have enough towels for everyone.
BRING YOUR DRUMS AND OTHER MUSICAL INSTRUMENTS. Drumming and jamming
will go on, weather permitting.
No drugs, please. This gathering is at Lark's home so please show
respect for persons and property in respect of Lark O'The Clans allowing
this gathering to take place at her home.
For those of you are scrapped for cash and may only be able to
afford the $5.00 for the cost of the privies, your assistance in the
kitchen area will be a GREAT donation. Me and Lark want to see
everyone come and enjoy this New Year's gathering regardless of
Please e-mail me privately to confirm your attendance by Friday 20

Come on rennies - we're talking about 3 weeks from this coming
Many of you have asked me why the party is not being held on New Year's
Eve itself - well considering NYE is on Tuesday - in the middle of the
friggin week and also considering that many folks like me and Arie have
to work on Tuesday 31 Dec and then go back to work on Thursday 2 January
me and Lark and Griffin figured, heck, why not have a gathering the
weekend in between the 2 holidays of XMAS and New Years!!! This makes
perfect sense to us!!!
Now if you want to be able to stay past the weekend - this is strictly
between you and Lark, not me at all!!!
And, the Houston group is planning a Masque party on Tuesday 31st
December - so ya see, this gathering at Lark's would have perhaps
conflicted with that party. And other folks are planning other
parties/events for NYE itself. This way, we have 3 days at Lark's to
gather and relax, prior to NYE itself!!!
T-MINUS 27 more days!!!
