Oops our screwing screws July, again
DS XI over Memorial Day 2005

The house yet again

Has everyone recovered from Dershstock X-treme?

Again we have run into a scheduling conflict.  He Who Has Not Been Named will be arriving, like his sister did, in early July.  So, again, we can't do July 4th weekend.  This year, Dershstock XI, will be over Memorial Day weekend, Saturday May 28 through Monday May 30. 

Zara Columbia, and her website, have been doing a lot of growing.

For more info about the party in general you can refer to last year's site or sites from prior years that contain lots of pictures and details, and can see  directions  as well.  I also shot a cool Quicktime VR of the house during winter.

Dershstock happens in Phoenicia, NY and all are welcome to come party with Zara and the rest of us.  So feel free to bring friends, family or anyone else who you think can put up with us, or who knows how to babysit.

volleyball Things to do at Dershstock:

Eat, Drink, be merry, rock climb, hike, swim, screw, play tennis, play ultimate (on the new field!), go antiquing, Hot Tubbin', saunaing, did we mention drinking, play music (or sing, or listen), play games, sit by the bonfire, read, hang out, meet cool people, philosophize!

We never really know who will show up:

Or what they might be doing:


Things to bring to Dershstock:

Sleeping bag, tent (if you want to camp), bathing suit (optional), food (bring some stuff, and we are all pretty communal about it & there is always a grill on), drinks (beer, wine, great bottles of Scotch etc. ), ice, coolers (we always have more food than fridge space), sporting gear (hiking, rock climbing, tennis, etc.), games, friends, musical instruments, CDs (it is hard to bring much music from California), towels, cameras, art supplies, good weather, philosophies!

The beds are somewhat limited , but there is plenty of floor space Muenz taking up space , and more camping space outside than we can possibly fill up.  So tents are probably a good idea.  A few people have asked about local hotels, so we now have a list, with no promises about price or quality.

RSVP not required, but appreciated.

You can get in touch with us with more questions by emailing  or   or phone us at (310) 390-8800, or up in Phoenicia (around the time of the event) (845) 688-5659 or (845) 688-5506.
