Western MA Pagan Pride Day

Western MA Pagan Pride Day is tomorrow, Sat. the 13th, in the Student
Union Ballroom at UMass Amherst. Weather permitting, some of it will
also be outside on the... um... troubled land by the pond.

At least a few of us will be there, doing our CR thang. We've asked
that our table be next to the Asatruar, but I don't know if they're
assigning spaces ahead of time. We'll be selling books (The new CR
FAQ book), talking to people about Gaelic classes and some upcoming
rituals and activist events. Look for the blue or purple Celtic
banners, and probably some tartan here and there.

*Disclaimer* I am not one of the organizers of this event, and don't
really know who will be there or where they're at spiritually or
politically. But we're going to provide a CR presence, and hopefully
some of the folks who come will be looking for what we have to offer.
We know we're rather different than many of the groups who will be
there. Hopefully it will go well.

Right now we're just planning on staffing the table and hanging out
with whoever shows up. But if there's enough interest we can do a
more structured talk/workshop/whatever. If folks want to do a ritual
outside, you might want to check this out first:
http://www.bandia.net/crones/dcHeal.html (yes, the last few panels are
set at UMass). Last I checked, the land at UMass was in need of the
Psychic Ambulance and Guerilla Astral cleanup squad. And every time I
go there we wind up having to do some sort of mopping.

Anyway, the Asatruar are leading the main ritual, an Ancestors Blot.
The band Incus will be performing, and there will be some discussions
or panel type things.
