Transcript Rites of Spring Strange reports have been floating in to us about women pitching tents in apartment courtyards, and secretaries wearing hiking boots to work. Yes, the first Lesbian Rites of Spring in Texas is almost here. It will be a camping weekend, a time to relax, enjoy the outdoors, and meet new people. The entertainment will be whatever we bring--music, sports, Austin's Mother Tongue Thea'ter group, etc. It starts Friday, May 30, whenever you can get there (it's just west of Austin). We'll try to gather around 11 pm Friday night, to meet each other and coordinate anything that needs coordinating. The setting: a rustic public campground on the Colorado River. There are a few facilities--an occasional toilet or water spigot, some picnic tables--but mostly it's just grass and trees and deer and river, for miles. Since our weekend is the one after Memorial weekend, we hope any touristy hordes will have come and gone. And if the weather is overcast or a little misty, don't stay home! It'll be cooler and we'll have more miles to frolic in. Who's coming: women from Austin, Houston, Dallas, Ft. Worth, San Antonio, Denton, and Wichita Falls--so far. If you're from a small town or don't know anybody, you're especially welcome. Sports: possibilities include softball, soccer, swimming, volleyball, fishing, boating, scuba diving, hiking, and frisbee. One park no-no: motorcycle riding is allowed only on the paved road, because of the grazing cattle. Children: Everyone will be given a chance to share responsibility for children if they want to. Workshops: If people want to plan rap sessions instead of doing everything free-form, the possibilities are endless: Gays in the Medical Profession, Lesbian Mothers, Creating Women's Media, Dealing with Parents, the Lesbian Movement Today, Lesbians in Sports, How to Do the Bump...whatever we're interested in. We'll talk about it Friday night. If people just want to lie in the sun that's fine too. Music: bring your instruments, from spoons to accordions. Food, etc.: We'll have more time to play if we do our cooking in large groups. So, if you can, get together with others in your city or carload and coordinate who brings what. If you can't, you can do a sort of adventurous potluck thing anyway; bring larger quantities of a few things, and we'll throw them together and see how much chaos we have. If you have stoves, grill tops, and large pots and pans, bring them. And don't forget your sleeping bag or blanket or whatever. To coordinate things like food and tents, in Austin contact Tina - 476-5051. In Houston contact Dee Smathers - work: 526-5701, home: 529-6801. Anywhere else, write PBT if you have unanswered questions. Directions: to get from Austin to ROS First you have to get to Austin. Then arrange yourself so you're heading west out of the city on highway 71 (Ben White Blvd.). Ignore the business loop of 71. Ignore the Mansfield Dam sign. 27 miles west oTAustin, turn right on Ranch Road 2322. You'll see a rustic store on the corner there, and a sign for a girl scout camp. You'll be on this twisting Ranch Road 2322 for about 10 (?) miles, past a motel, an LCRA sign, a Girl Scout Camp, and finally—a Baptist Encampment. If it's daylight you'll see some fine views of the river. Finally you come to two signs, one saying "Paved Road Ends," the other pointing to the right "To Park Ranger." You go LEFT, on the dirt road:
