      A Celebration of Life

      SerpentStone Litha Gathering June 24-26, 2005

      At Splendor Hollow near Sevierville, TN

      The soil has been tilled, the seeds planted, and the magick of life abounds! Come celebrate a magickal life as we await the harvest to begin. The Oak King is bursting out his branches to enfold us in his blessings of life. Come share with us pathways of life, light, love and fellowship as we explore life through knowledge exchange. I dare you!

      Special Event:

      Start saving your pennies! You don't want to miss out on this laughter filled, fun infested, money making event! All proceeds go to help defray the costs of our gatherings. (Drum roll please!) We are having a WET WITCH Contest! Yes, that's right folks. Now here are the details! In order to help keep things fair, each contestant will be issued an official contest t-shirt (which they may keep). What one chooses to wear under it or not is up to each individual. An entry fee of $10.00 will be necessary for each contestant. People can pool their monies together and pay a 'contestants' fee. Anyone not wishing to participate will not be asked to do something they are uncomfortable with. Each contestant will have a voting 'can'. Votes are one penny each! The one with the most money will receive the coveted crown and title of Wicked Witch of the Wet! Now for more fun! Many have asked me to "get to be the one" with the water hose! Soooo in order to let everyone in on the fun of wetting these witches down, water filled water pistols may be purchased at $1.00 each. Come have some fun with us!


      PLEASE BRING: tent, sleeping bags, blankets, rain gear and clothing for both warm and cool 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!). For more helpful suggestions and a checklist for what you should bring, see our Suggested Packing List online at


      If you need to buy things, please stop at one of the larger stores, rather than the small local convenient stores. It keeps the small stores able to supply their regular customers, and keeps the rumors and security hassles down.


      We'll supply food for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, and main dish supper on Friday and Saturday. 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!

Contact the Registration Coordinator to make arrangements.


      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, or 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 is asked 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!

      Merchants: This is a small gathering with limited space. For more information concerning merchanting at this gathering, please contact the merchant coordinator as soon as possible!

      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.
