Hello all,

If you don’t know me, I’m Moonshadow, one of the Administrators of the Jedi Gatherings Group and wanted to let you know about two upcoming Jedi Gatherings being held later this year. If you aren’t familiar with the concept of Gatherings, Gatherings are basically a 3-4 day camping trip during which Jedi and other interested parties come together in real life to share, learn, and apply the real-life aspects of being a Jedi.

This year, we have 2 four day Gatherings being organized in Indiana and Pennsylvania:

2008 Indiana Gathering
Thursday July 31, 2008 – Sunday August 3, 2008
Lincoln State Park
Lincoln City, Indiana
Contact Person: Moonshadow (Moonshadowlight5@gmail.com)

2008 Pennsylvania Gathering
Friday October 10, 2008 – Monday October 13, 2008
Ukrainian Homestead
Lehighton, Pennsylvania
Contact Person: Driver (driverx@copmail.com)

If you’re interested, please check out the links above, or the more detailed information posted below. In addition, if you're interested, you can submit a Jedi Gathering Registration form or contact me at Moonshadowlight5@gmail.com with any questions or concerns.

I'll be continually updating the detailed posts as new information becomes available. Thanks! And hope to see you there!
