Sat. Oct 28: SAMHAIN GATHERING. 7pm Gathering, 9pm Ritual. The Vampire Samhain Ritual will be a reenactment of the solar rite.

It will consist of a moderator and actors representing the God of Light and the God of Darkness with the children of the night being the vampire spawn. The symbolism will be the war that happens throughout the year between light and darkness, and from out of the Book of Nod will be the story of how vampires came into being. Suffice to say that it should be one Hell of a show -- with a couple of the classical elements remaining intact for all you purists out there. This will be a costume party, so feel free to let your inhibitions and creativity run wild! This will be an Adults Only gathering, as this is a clothing optional event. We are looking for participants for the ritual, so if you want to get in on the secret, you might want to volunteer now. Feel free to direct any questions, suggestions, or comments that you might be burning to get off your pentacle adorned chests. Drop us a line at 602-678-0644. We welcome newcomers, and all people of open minds. On a more somber note, we will be starting the evening with a ritual in memory of those who have passed on this year. There will be a very special Requiem ceremony to honor their memories, to offer our prayers to their families. We will ask that all who attend to please participate in the requiem.
