Three main things to share with you: Beltane, a local pagan campout, a BIG pagan campout. Read on!ABOUT BELTANE
RSVP – If you are planning to attend, you must let me know. For supply preparations, I need a general head count sooner rather than later. Contact me at (970)224-4797 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHERE – Ritual will be held at Treehenge (just east of Lee Martinez Park in Fort Collins). If you need directions, let me know. If we have a blizzard (which is not unheard of), we will move our festivities to the shelter at Lee Martinez Park. Thatâ€™ll keep the wet off but it doesnâ€™t block out the cold so be prepared for unpredictable Colorado weather.
WHEN – We will begin at 5:30 PM on Monday May 1st. Please be prompt. Upon arrival everyone will be invited to make flower crowns before ritual begins. The potluck will follow the ritual so you may need a snack before arriving. Food may not start until 7 or so.
WHAT TO BRING â€“
- Drums and noisy toys
- A bouquet of flowers
- Wear bright, happy clothes, fun ritual garb if you like, horns and fairy dust, flowers, leaves, mud masksâ€¦
- Vegetarian food and/or drink to share
- Personal, non-disposable dishes and utensils (throw away items are very un-pagan-like)
- Donation money (always appreciated)
If anything else occurs to me, you will certainly receive another e-mail.

Alyx Reese, the ritual coordinator for Dragonfest this year has asked me to send these announcements (Iâ€™ve edited them down).
Dragonfest is looking for ritual presenters. If you have a Mystery Ritual or some other special rite youâ€™d like to present, please e-mail your ideas to email@example.com.
And they are looking for priests/priestesses who would like to participate in the Multiple Drawing Down. The format is changing this year so priests and priestesses will draw down for shorter periods. If interested e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
And for the entertainment stage: they are looking for performers (no auditions required). If interested, contact Thomas email@example.com.
