The 7th annual GPNDG

The Great Pacific NorthWest Dryside Gather is the 'premier' WetLeather gathering (campout) of the year. The Gather'98 Boss Bob Taylor (aka bjet, aka Dr. WetLeather) (bjet@efn.org) has picked the same site in Oregon we used last year. Bob's announcement is online if you want to read it.

GPNDG'98 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 $40 for Friday/Saturday, or $35 for Saturday night only, payable in advance to Shannon (whose address appears below). I know, I know, Bob is DA BOSS, but Shannon is DA BANKER. Got it?

ANNWN Concert cancelled, damnit!

Leigh Ann's band Annwn was planning on performing Saturday night, but as of June 18th had to cancel. However, Leigh Ann and Greg may show up anyway, and you know that if they do we can talk them into an acoustic set or so...
