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

details, and can see directions as
well. I also

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.
Things to do at Dershstock:
Eat, Drink, be merry, rock climb, hike, swim, screw, play tennis, play

We never really know who will show up:
Or what they might be doing:
to bring to Dershstock:
Sleeping bag, tent (if you want to camp), bathing suit (optional), food
some stuff, and we are all pretty communal about it & there is
a grill on), drinks (beer, wine, great bottles of Scotch etc. ), ice,
(we always have more food than fridge space), sporting gear (hiking,
climbing, tennis, etc.), games, friends, musical instruments, CDs (it
to bring much music from California), towels, cameras, art supplies,
The beds are somewhat limited
, but there is plenty of floor space
, and more camping space outside than we can possibly fill
So tents are probably a good idea. A few people have asked about
hotels, so we now have a list,
with no promises about price or quality.
RSVP not required, but
