GPNDG'97 will be held at Simax Group Camp at Crescent Lake, Oregon in the Deschutes National Forest. The campground is located on the NE shore of Crescent Lake just south of Highway 58, and roughly 50 miles north of Crater Lake, OR. The cost this year will be $25 for Friday/Saturday, or $18 for Saturday night only, payable in advance to Shannon.

ANNWYN Concert Saturday night!

Leigh Ann's band Annwyn is planning on performing Saturday night at the Gather. Many attendees enjoyed their performance at last year's Gather in Republic, WA.

The upfront costs of hauling musicians and equipment to Oregon are substantial. Annwyn is requesting donations to help cover the transportation costs for the group. (Hopefully they won't need mosquito repellant like they did last year). Donations can be sent to:

Elf Hill Music and Mayhem, Unltd.
2455 Ashby Ave
Berkeley, CA 94705-2034

CDs and cassettes will be available for purchase at the Gather. Questions or comments can be sent to leighann@sybase.com or shannonk@sequent.com.
