Gathering of the Vibes - August 12th, 13th, & 14th

Greetings Friends,

It's with great pride & excitement that we are now able to announce that we've been welcomed back to the Town of Duanesburg to join our friends at the Indian Lookout Country Club to celebrate the 10th Annual Gathering of the Vibes, August 12, 13 & 14, 2005!

What a long, strange trip the last 10 years have been for all of us. Most of you know this, but for those who may not, I'd like to shed a little light. After Jerry died, San Francisco hosted a beautiful tribute in Golden Gate Park. On the East Coast, a proposal to hold a similar gathering in New York's Central Park was denied by the NYC Park's Commission. The City's reason for declining was the significant cost in providing Police, EMS & Clean Up Crews.

After this was made public, Terrapin & Duprees Diamond News set out to find a space where the Deadhead Community could join together and celebrate the life of Jerry Garcia, his music and the love that we collectively share. Memorial Day, 1996, "Deadhead Heaven: A Gathering of the Tribe" was born. SUNY-Purchase College hosted this heartwarming gathering. In 1997, at the magnificent Croton Point Park, Deadhead Heaven evolved into the Gathering of the Vibes.

So 10 years later, as we move forward with Vibes 2005, we just wanted to let you know that Jerry is very much in our thoughts, and this year we're proud to show tribute to the man who has inspired us all, on so many levels.

Thank you VibeTribe for your love, encouragement and continued commitment to keeping the Gathering of the Vibes alive. Hope you're all as excited as we are! Please stay in touch as the 10th Annual Gathering of the Vibes comes around the bend!

Ken & the Terrapin Family
