Yes, We will have a Beltane Event!

Our annual Beltane event will be held this year on the weekend of May 11-13 at the Pethericks' Great Country Estate. We will have the traditional medieval/Renaissance style pot-luck, a Belfire and a maypole dance.

Thanks to the Pethericks' generosity, there will be no site fee. I would like to solicit opinions about pooling some funds for entertainment. Would you be willing to kick in 10 or 15 dollars to get a dance troupe or other diversion? Any suggestions for favorite entertainers? Speak up!

I will post directions and a few more details soonish, but most of us know the drill by know. It's been 15 years since that fateful evening in the trailer camping lot with the cops and everything. Oy.

Happy spring, mes chères!

Re: Shameless self promotion-
Huh. Well, perhaps if wanted to have part of your birthday celebration happen in the company or happy, well fed freaks around a Belfire, you could arrange to join us Saturday night, and we could sing you the birthday dirge!

Either way, I hope we get to see you :)

And if you were interested in talking about entertainment possibilities, I assure you that we pay well for our diversions! Have you a URL I could look at?

I know you said directions later but can we know what town at least this entails? Thanks love.

Of course! It's technically Aquasco, MD, although their address is Brandywine. It's to the south, off of Old Branch Ave. About 45 minutes to an hour out of DC Does that help?

since i'll actually HAVE the $10-15 to spare for once, and will actually be close enough to attend, absolutely i'll chip in. the bellydancers sounded nice, but hell, i'd even chip in $10-15 to X&A for hosting. either that, or i'll try to remember to bring bunches of toilet paper again. >;)

Thanks, darlin'. Appreciate your support very much.

Seriously, that weekend I will have 60 finals AND 60 7-page papers which are supposed to be graded in 48 hours, so I will be to busy to attend.

I got my spring flu out of the way early this year, my cough is almost completely gone, and I won't have school that weekend!
I might actually be able to make it that weekend.
I could rent a car, since last year ride-space was limited for the baltimore folks, and even moreso this year since we are one-less baltimore folk.

I am gratified to hear that the flu is history. I do hope you can make it! I know we'll have a pretty good Baltimore contingent, but I'm not sure who's coming down when, or with whom.

We should get you on the our yahoo group for Beltane. I can send you an invite for that. Yay!
