Trying something new this month – rather than just sending you my blather I am going to pull together anything sent to us that hasn’t happened already as well as whatever I have going on.  Let me know what you think…but remember when you reply to this message it goes to the four Regional Contacts, not back to the group.  More on that in our spiffy new footer.  Here goes!  xoxo RLL

HexenFest – with Pandemonaeon March 9th  The Oakland Metro 630 3rd Street Oakland CA 94607 Hi there. We are Sharon Knight, Winter, and Anaar. Two musicians and a fashion designer inspired by myth, magick, and the realms of faerie. This is Sharon, writing this. Winter and I travel the land as a touring duet under my name. As yet we haven’t been able to tour with our full 6-piece band, Pandemonaeon. So we decided to create the kind of festival we’d like to play at, right here in our home town. Anaar, a dark tribal bellydancer and clothing designer for Tombo Studio, liked the idea, and Hexenfest was born.

Any extra funds from this event will go towards helping fund future events.

April 15 NorthBay Regional Ranger Training  We are having a Regional Ranger training for anyone interested in becoming a North BayRanger on April 15th at Samuel P. Taylor near Pt. Reyes. We will talk about what it means to take on the role of a Ranger at a local event, learn about the history of the Regional Rangers, and run some scenarios to practice mediating possible conflicts that can arise.  To be clear – this training does not qualify you to serve as a Black Rock Ranger. That is a totally different process, which starts here.  This is a training for North Bay Rangers who worked the decompression event last fall, and anyone else interested in Rangering future Northbay events.  If you are interested in finding out more about our regional ranger training please join our North Bay Rangers discussion list at and get into the conversation.

Secure Ticket Exchange Program  STEP is first come, first served.  You will only be allowed to register for tickets if tickets are available.  Keep checking back.
