Drumming at the Wyld Fire Beltane Hunt

So it's been a very long time since we got together and drummed, and our latest opportunity will be at the fabulous Wyld Fire Beltane Hunt.  This is fundraising event to benefit GNOPPD, a local non-profit here in New Orleans fighting religious intolerance.  The event is taking place at Gryphon's Nest Campground, a 52 acre retreat in Springfield, Louisiana.  You can find more info about the campground at

All of the details for the event can be found at  The event costs $30 to get in, BUT DRUMMERS GET IN FREE.  Not-to-mention, after the drumming, there will be a pool party with an open bar and food.

What you have to do:  There will be a "hunt" going on, where people divide up into "predators" and "prey" and they go running through the woods hunting each other.  During the hunt, they need drums constantly drumming.  Then there's a ceremony following the hunt that needs drumming too.  After that, it's just a party for the rest of the night.  Firedancers will also get in free.

You can email me if you have other questions about it.  Obviously, you need to bring your own drum.  The event is an overnight event; however, you don't have to stay the night if you don't want to... it's just offered for people who drink too much.

    Sounds interesting. Doubt I could afford to go. Might wait until I know the people in this group a bit better too. Drinking too much won't be a problem ... I very rarely drink. Just not into it. I DO play drums though :)
