Great Lakes Rainbow Spring Council will be held on “The Land,” in Perry, MI, 4993 West Britton Rd Perry Michigan 48872, Friday April 26 – Sunday April 28, 2013. Map to the site http://goo.gl/maps/yKhjL
For those new to Rainbow, council is much like any other gathering with plenty of food, fun, music, old and new friends around the campfire, though at some time(s) during the weekend we’ll pass the feather in a circle to decide plans for the kitchen and trailer(s) over the summer. All are welcome in council, even first time gatherers. Plenty of informal discussions and also heartsong circles are likely as well. When an actual “council” is “happening” depends on the consensus of the council, but it will certainly happen sometime between Fri-Sun.
A long list of proposed items for discussion include, among others:
1) What is TS Kitchen doing for the 4th? 2) Turtle necklace? 3) Trailer Needs 4) Dates for Gallup Picinic. 4) Trailer clean up after serendipitous meetings in the Arb), 5) date for fall council and destination 5) Scouting for Regionals 6) Cart for hauling or kit for cart 7) Water Filters/Water Movie 8) New Tarps? 9) Gallup 10) The kitchen trailer must have its tire fixed. 11) check and prep both trailers, water lines, tarps and supplies during this council gathering for whatever adventures lay ahead.
12) We must decide if and how to distribute the kitchen between the annual gathering in Montana and a campout happening simultaneously within the Great Lakes region this summer. We will need strong contingents present, committed to volunteer for seed camps, set up, and clean up for one or both sites as determined by consensus.
This land is a sacred space so please honor this energy. The gathering ends on Sunday, so please respect the land and our hosts and don’t linger after that.
Bring food to share to, there is well water available on site. If you are staying overnight bring a tent, bedroll etc. and be prepared for cold and rain, after all it is Michigan. Lovin’ You!
