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 cold

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
http://www.serpents tone.org/ gatherings/ packinglist_ text.html
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.
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

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
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
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!

Let go of the old to make way for the new!
Each of us has things that no longer call to us, have memories
attached that we need to let go, or that we feel just need to move
on. Bring your items (please cleanse them of any negative energy)
and leave them with a clue of who you are for someone to pick up or
exchange. Trades not necessary, but nice. If you pick up an item,
try to find whom it belonged to, and make a new friend!
Childrenâs Trick or Treat
Children, dress up in your best costume, and join us trick or
treating around the camp. Adults, bring treats for the kids!
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.
