Great Lakes Rainbow Fall Council 2011 Notes

Great Lakes Rainbow Kownsayl, Clownshow November 4-6 in Perry, MI

25 Family members in attendance.

I. Calendar 2012

1. Love-In

Friday-Sunday Feb 3, 4 and 5, 2012 at Paul and Colleen’s (directions TBA)

start time: after coffee, Friday morning. Come prepared for sledding.

2. Spring Council

Saturday-Sunday April 28 and 29, 2012 Green Eagle Farm 

Start time: 4:30 pm

Prepping the kitchen trailer for the Annual gathering will be on the agenda.

3. Family Reunion Picnic

Saturday June 9, Gallup Park, Ann Arbor

Over the one-way bridge, follow the Huron River in the direction of flow till you reach a giant field, and we’ll be under the shady tree (most likely).

Start time: 4:19 pm

4. Annual Rainbow Gathering for Peace and Healing
July 1-7, 2012.

The consensus from the Washington gathering was for the 2012 gathering to be someplace in the White Mountains, Tennesse, Kentucky, North Carolina, Georgia, or Virginia.

5. No Organized Activity in the Arb

Last day of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs

Saturday July 21, 2012, 4:19 pm

If you and the family happen to be picnicking in the Arb to end out the Ann Arbor Art fairs, don’t be surprised by serendipitous meetings with friendly faces, musical instruments and picnic baskets, in the main meadow, toward the river. Because the Arb has firm rules against organized activities, we feel it is important to make sure that if folks show up there, as many often do at this time in July, they understand they are freely assembling of their own volition, and that no one will be organizing anything on their behalf.

6. Fall Clownshow

October 20 and 21, 2012, at the Darling’s in Perry, MI

Start time: 4:30 pm.

II. Other discussion items:

1. Marijuana is more legal then ever.

2. If the Turtle Soup Kitchen is to serve at Occupy Detroit (or Occupy Lansing), we’d need some Family to stay with the kitchen 24/7. Though general support was expressed for the #Occupy Movement, no one in the circle was able to haul the kitchen and stay with it for the duration. #Occupy may be more in need of expertise than equipment.

General Assembly meetings take place for Occupy Detroit Saturdays at noon and Tuesdays at 6pm.

  1. Sorry I missed the Council. Turned out I could have come up, too – I had a meeting scheduled for Saturday afternoon, but the meeting was cancelled at the last minute. But, by the time the meeting was cancelled, I had already made plans for the evening. Missed y’all!

    Looks like I’ll miss the next event, too – the first weekend in February is one of only two weekends all winter (the other being A2 Folk Festival weekend) that I’m always booked. But, there’s the Fun Tournament on New Years Eve, as always, and it’s likely I can make Spring Council. Some Rainbow energy sounds great!
