additional pertinent information: Spring Council is where the site for the 2012 Gathering will be determined and gathering layout begins. There will be travel to see sites the scouts propose, lots of walking, discussion and consensus. Come & plug in. Be prepard and self sufficient. Bring clothes for warm, wet and cold weather, good boots/shoes. Water and Food to share, shelter (tent, sleeping bag, etc) your own cup bowl spoon, all the stuff you'd need for gathering & a sense of humor. This site was chosen for Spring Council because it is centrally located to proposed sites and has no bearing on where the gathering will be.
