Gather '98

August 14-16th a Simax campground at Crescent Lake in Oregon. See for other pertinent details.

Applications are now being accepted. The price is $40 a person for Friday/Saturday and $35 a person for just Saturday.

There was a bit of a back lash about paying for a band last year so I didn't include any money for that. It would be appreciated, however, if you did like last year's entertainment to send any band donations directly to Leigh Ann.

I'm sure I'm forgetting something.
