SOS Beltane Officiated By TOSS (Armadillo Acres)
Spirit Of the Sycamore Tradition will be camping at Armadillo Acres for this weekend as we celebrate with a Maypole Dance, rituals and other activities. Tickets will be $25 per adult if purchased in advance or $30 at the gate. There are no showers on the property but there is a park 7 miles down the road with showers and flush toilets which has a $4 entry fee per adult per day. 2 porta-potties will be provided for the event (more if advance purchase tickets exceed expectations). This will be a "rough" camping environment so please pack and plan accordingly.
Please see a tradition elder to purchase advance tickets.
From Dallas, head east on I-30 to Mount Pleasant. (About 115 miles depending where you are coming from).
Exit #160 to Highway 271/highway 49 and turn right. Watch your signs through Mount Pleasant and stay on 49.
Continue on Highway 49 approximately 17 miles to Daingerfield. Watch your signs through town and stay on 49. Continue on Highway 49 approximately 8 miles until you are just past Hughes Springs.
(There is a 4-Way stop at the intersection and it is right next to the Wildflower Inn and Cafe. Great place to stop for food. Decent price, large quantity, home made, damn tasty.) Turn right on FM 2612 Loop.
Continue about 0.5 miles. Turn left at the "Love Chapel Cemetary" sign. (The County Roads are not marked very well if at all out there. Just watch for the Love Chapel sign, it's easy to spot.)
Continue about 1 mile. Road will merge with another, stay left. Continue about another 0.5 miles. (You will go past CR 2987 on your right but not as far as the Love Chapel Church on the left.) Gate will be on your left and not easy to see until you are right on it. There is a green "Underground Cable" box very close, watch for it.
People from other locations, use the intersection of Highway 49 and FM 2612 as your way point. It is just south east of Hughes Springs and north west of Avinger. Find your best route to that location.
