Campsite Map: http://www.houstontx.gov/parks/image...ampsitemap.pdf

Lake Houston Park is located about 30 minutes north of Houston. It is
accessible from Hwy 59 and FM 1485. Signs point the way from that
intersection.



Jax or another Houston Jedi will be available to pick people up from the
airport on Friday, preferably Friday afternoon. Please fly into George Bush Intercontinental (IAH). Do NOT fly into Houston-Hobby since it is a significant distance from the
campground. If you need to make other arrangements for pick up, please
contact Jax when booking your flight unless you wish to rent a car.



Transportation will likely be the highest cost of the Gathering. If you
are not experienced in finding good airline deals, feel free to contact
Jax for assistance. You should be able to find a ticket for under $400
and under $300 is likely attainable as well. If you are driving, keep
in mind the possible rising cost of gas.



Accommodations: Lodging Lodges and Tents

Lake Houston Park has two lodges:

Lazy Creek Cottage Lodge is handicapped accessible, has bunk beds that can accommodate 26 people
and has indoor showers and restrooms for the comfort of guests. There
is a full size kitchen, a refrigerator, stove/oven, fireplace, and heat
and air conditioning. There is also an outdoor patio with a group fire
ring, benches, picnic table, and large BBQ grill.



Forest Creek Cottage Lodge meets the requirements set in the Americans with Disabilities Act and
can accommodate 12 guests. There are bunk beds in the main living area
and a private bedroom with 2 twin beds. The cottage has indoor shower
facilities, a changing area, a fireplace, heat and air conditioning, and
a cathedral ceiling and ceiling fans. In addition, there’s a large
dining/activity area, patio with a large BBQ grill, fire ring, benches,
picnic table, and a beautiful view.



You will need to bring your own linens for both lodges and the Houston Jedi will provide cooking and dining utensils.



Pets are not allowed in buildings in the park and dogs must be kept on a leash.



Camping facilities include walk-in campsites with a tent pad, lantern
post, picnic table, fire ring, and BBQ grill. Water is centrally
located. A shower building with restrooms is available. Tent campsites
are limited to 8 people and 2 tents per site.



Campground Amenities:

Lake Houston Park is a 4,986 acre wilderness park with a nature center,
park ponds, 12 miles of hiking and biking trails, and 8 miles of
equestrian trails.



Cost: $20-$35 per person for lodging, free for kids 12 and under

Lodging Costs:

Lodging costs for the Gathering will be as follows:

$20 if paid in full by April 14, 2011
$25 if paid in full by September 1, 2011
$35 if paid at the door October 14, 2011-02-18

Kids 12 and under are free

Lodging costs above will cover lodging from Friday evening October 14 to
Sunday morning October 16, 2011. For those attending the Renaissance
Festival and staying overnight Sunday, lodging will be an additional
cost, also dependent on the number of people.



PLEAE NOTE: Payment must be received by Thursday September 29, 2011 in order to guarantee a spot in the lodge. If payment is received
after September 30th, spots may or may not be available. It is highly
encouraged that you submit a $15 dollar deposit as soon as possible to
reserve your spot.



Tenting Costs:

Tent fees are $7 per site plus $3 per person 13 and older. If you are
considering tent camping, please contact Jax to discuss it.



Food Costs:

Food costs for the weekend will likely be between $10 to $20 for dinner
Friday night, all of Saturday’s meals, and Sunday’s breakfast. Monday
food costs will also be additional, although group food options may be
available depending on group consensus. Exact food costs will be
determined closer to the event and every attempt will be made to keep
costs as low as possible. There is also the option of providing your
own food for the weekend.



Texas Renaissance Festival Costs:

For anyone who wishes to attend the Texas Renaissance Festival, costs are as follows:

Group (25 or more): $15 adults, $6 children (must be bought ahead of time)
Advance (bought before September 24): $16 adults, $6 children
Discount (bought ahead of time but after Sept 24th): $19 adults, $9 children
At the gate: $23 adults, $11 children
(Children are ages 5-12, 4 and under are free)
As you can see, costs increase as it gets later in the year so the
earlier we know who is attending the better. If we don’t have the
numbers to buy group rate tickets it is easiest to purchase tickets
online and print them at home. If you have any questions, ask Jax.



Costs for food and drinks at the Renaissance Festival are a bit pricey
and can add up quickly depending on your appetite, so be sure to bring
enough funds or your own food. Additionally, you may want to bring some
extra money for souvenirs. Some booths take credit cards, but many may
not. There will be ATM machines available throughout the festival
grounds.



In order to reserve the lodges, we are asking for a $15 deposit by April
14th. You will be sent details on how to send your advance deposit
when you submit a Gathering Registration Form.
Full payment can be made at the door or at your earliest convenience.
Paying the full amount at least one week in advance would be quite
helpful, however, as groceries need to be purchased before everyone
arrives.



For anyone with financial considerations, please contact Moonshadow at Moonshadowlight5@gmail.com to discuss available options.

Food: Optional Meal Plan / Bring Your Own

Everyone will also have the option of either purchasing a meal plan or
bringing their own food to cook in the available kitchen for their meals
on Friday through Sunday. For those people who purchase a meal plan,
Friday night’s dinner, all of Saturday’s meals, and Sunday’s breakfast
will be provided. Every attempt will be made to accommodate anyone with
food allergies or special dietary restrictions. An exact menu will be
determined closer to the event. Meals are not catered so everyone will
be expected to help in some way, whether that is in preparation,
cooking, or cleaning after.



Events: Workshops, Activities, and Discussions

An exact schedule will be provided a bit closer to the event, but likely
activities may include, but are not limited to, Reiki training, energy
training, sensing exercises and games, sword/lighsaber training,
meditation, making lightsaber cloth bracelets, and hiking.



If anyone is interested in leading a workshop or have any suggestions for workshops, please include that information in your Jedi Gatherings Registration Form.

The main activity for Sunday will be the Texas Renaissance Festival for anyone interested in attending. The theme for that weekend will be 1001 Dreams. Details can be found here.
Feel free to dress up in Jedi robes for the event. You can also bring
weapons but they must remain sheathed. Details can be found at the
website above.



Please indicate on your registration form whether or not you will be
attending the Renaissance Festival and whether or not you would like
lodging for Sunday night so we can make the necessary reservations.


Packing List

A rough packing list can be found here, although you will not need any tents unless you’ll be staying on one of the camp tent sites.
