First Pagan Church of Asphodel announces...
What to Bring: Weather-appropriate clothing and footwear
Acct. Id: 415396
Event Id: 104663
When: Sep. 21st. 2019
Where: Hubbardston, Massachusetts
We honor Herne
Event Details: The pack of hounds howls in the darkness, the prey huddles in the woods, and the tribe circles the campfire telling tales of the Hunt and painting on the cave walls. Every year, Asphodel holds our Wild Hunt in honor of Herne the hunter. The Hunt will held be at Cauldron Farm on Saturday night, with the afternoon Mabon ritual the next day. Anyone who chooses to come MUST CONTACT US and choose one of six groups to join - Predators who run in a pack to hunt, Prey who will spend a lot of time hiding in the woods, Priests who tell stories, Artists who paint the Hunt, Firetenders, and Cooks. It is acceptable to join more than one of the fireside groups; those who want to be Predators or Prey must choose one or the other. Some people choose the Predator group because they are "hunting" something in their life; some choose the "prey" group because they want to sacrifice something in their life.
To attend, you MUST get approved by the leader of the group you want to join, and let them know they will be coming. If you are an official member of Asphodel, you can join the Asphodel list and comment there. Otherwise, please email Kricket (head Priest) at email@example.com and she will forward your email to the correct group leader.
Please wear warm clothing and sensible shoes, especially if you are going to be in the Predator/Prey group! Other rules and requirements will be given to attendees when they register. Due to the risks of running around in the woods at night, this ritual is not appropriate for kids. Teenagers will be considered on a case-by-case basis, after discussion with their parent.
Event Location: 12 Simonds Hill Rd in Hubbardston
Event TIME Details: 6pm-Whenever the ritual is over
Directions: To get to Cauldron Farm, take your best route to Rt. 2. Take Route 2 to Rt. 68 south to Gardner. You'll go through the rotary, then pass a Big Lots and then a Wal-Mart. Continue south on 68 and you will enter Hubbardston and civilization will abruptly drop away. Mind the 35mph speed limit in the center of town! Go south until you pass through the center of Hubbardston, or what passes for it - post office, gas station, fire station, library, etc. It won't last long. Go through the blinking yellow light. Go down the hill and look for a billboard on your left that says "Wachusett Lumber", shortly after the speed limit goes back up. Take the left at the billboard onto Old Princeton Rd. Bear right at the first fork. Continue past little farms and houses until you come to a sign saying, "Dangerous Interscetion" (spelled incorrectly) . Do not turn into the Moosehorn housing development just before the sign. Instead, take the right fork at the "dangerous interscetion" onto Simond Hill Road. We are the first house, a little ways down on the right. It is a red house with green trim and murals on the garage and barn. There is a parking area first, then a little ways down is a paved driveway, where people usually pull in to unload. Here is a map of our property.
If you are coming the east via Rt 2, you can take the exit for Rt 68 South, Hubbardston, and that will take you through Gardner, where you will see gas stations, fast food, supermarket, Walmart, etc. Alternately, you can save a little time by getting off Rt 2 in Westminster. (The bridge on Healdville Road is finally repaired.)
Coming down 62 from the West, where 62 crosses 68, you will pass Asnacomet ("Comet") Pond on the left, then on the right is Upper Intervale Road / River Road. (Upper Intervale is poorly paved, and useless as a shortcut on your way out, no matter what your GPS tells you.) Ed Clark Road forks off to the left just beyond there. Take Ed Clark Road past the horse farm, and Simonds Hill Road curves off sharply to the left. We are a ways down Simonds Hill Road, on the left. Coming from the East on 62, Ed Clark Road is hard to spot, as it is a fork going the other direction. At least it has a street sign now. It comes up fairly quickly after you cross into Hubbardston, and looks like a driveway. If you miss it, you'll come to 68 North, so continue as above.
You can park in our North field, unless it has three feet of snow on it, it is full of mud, or you've got low ground clearance. For smaller gatherings or classes, you may be able to leave your car in the driveway, but please ask when you arrive. For large camping events, we will have a shuttle that will bring you and your car to the nearby (free) parking lot. Unload your stuff in the driveway, and we'll direct you from there. DO NOT PARK IN THE ROAD! If you park along side the road all wheels must be off the road.
