Update message from Bob (Grandfather Cave Bear) Jones:
- Brothers from past MKPNW elder gatherings.
Our summer Gathering of the Tribes event is less than four weeks away and lots going on. As of May 12th, we have about 95 people signed up. That’s pretty good news, but here is the bigger news: we have opened the entire weekend to women, but they will not join the men until Saturday evening. In most ways, nothing has really changed except that I finally realized that the best way to attract both men and women to this event was to make it easier for the women to know where they will be sleeping and eating without changing the plans we already have in place for the men on Friday evening and most of Saturday.
I had great conversations today with Nik Colyer and Barbara Henrioulle(Nik’s wife) and they are very excited (as am I) about this shift. I also talked with Peter Wendel and his partner Donna Melcher and we have all figured out how to build a separate and safe container for the women and bring the men and women together in a wonderful way on Saturday evening.
I also made a site visit to Camp Collins with Nelson Oostenink, Frank Rodriguez and John Campbell and it is a wonderful site. We have room for 194 people on site, and I expect some local folks will prefer to sleep at home. This means we have the possibility of over 200 people for this event!
I finally have clarity on our costs too. $30 per person per night and $10 per person per meal. Add in about $20 per person in overhead expenses and we expect to come in at about $140 per person.
Registration closes on May 31st, but I expect to be sold out well before then, so don’t wait. You snooze, you lose!
