      SerpentStone Litha Gathering
      June 22-24, 2006
      At Splendor Hollow

      Come join the SerpentStone Family as we celebrate Midsummer,
      Discover the secrets of the time known as the Festival of the Bitter
      Greens, the Green Corn Festival, and the Mango or Melon Festival.
      Any way you slice it or dice it, it is the festival of the First
      Harvest, the first fruits of our labor showing forth from deep within
      the Earth where dark secrets dwell. Join the dance and the drumming,
      and discover the secrets that have traveled from deep within to
      become the fruits we share in love and trust.

      . Notice:This gathering is NOT clothing optional.

      PLEASE BRING: tent, sleeping bags, blankets, rain gear and clothing
      for both hot 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!

      Treat each other with respect, and respect all paths. Take care of

      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
      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!

      information concerning merchanting at this gathering, please contact
      the merchant coordinator as soon as possible!
