Hope you can attend.

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!!  You are invited.


 We are inviting you to attend the Gathering of the Tribes 99 to be held June 10-13 at Indian Springs State Park between Atlanta and Macon, Georgia.  The Gathering is sponsored this year by the Coven and Grove of the Crystal Dragon, Pair Dynion Grove, and The Southeastern Pagan Alliance (SEPA).  You can obtain information about the Gathering at:
You will love this park!!!!  One of the oldest if not THE oldest state park in the United States.  Given to the State of Georgia by a band of Creek Indians in the early 1800's.  The natural spring in the park,  is famed for it's healing properties.

Leave your mundane worries at home, get your tent or camper set up, and settle in for an enjoyable weekend of Pagan Networking, Drumming, Music, Knowledge Exchange, and Fun.  The natural setting of Indian Springs State Park is rich with historical  and ancient native american energies that will allow us to renew our connection with the Mother!

The Gathering is growing by leaps and bounds! There is a tremendous upsurge of interest in Pagan, Wiccan, and other  "Magical" Traditions. This is an International wonder to behold and we are proud to be a part of it!

To help you defray the cost of your attendance, if you can collect at least five registrations for the Gathering from your Coven, grove or Pagan Friends and send them to us with your signature on the top right hand corner, you will be given a free admission to the Gathering.
Good Luck!
