Paradise needs your Laptop-Desperate
Paradise registration team greatly needs laptops for use in the registration booth.  A new program is being written that will make checking is a piece of cake.  Programs, however,  need computers and we don't have any. .  The program will be on an external hard drive, so all we need is your computer to access the hard drive.  We will need the laptop from Tuesday through Sunday and we can compensate you with free days at Paradise if you want.  Is there anyone out there who can help?

 Experience 7 days of pure Bliss
Tuesday August 28th until Monday September 3rd, 2007.
Paradise 2007 is the annual Sex Positive Summer Camp for Consenting Adults. Held at the Redmond Longhouse, it’s a well maintained, expansive and beautiful campground, nestled on 15 acres of Pacific Northwest wilderness. There is a reason we call it Paradise.
Once you arrive you are free to shed all the accouterments of the outside world and embrace the bliss, community and freedom of exploring your sexuality and expressing yourself fully.
Your registration includes all meals, camp site, pools, classes and demonstrations, play spaces, snacks, drinks and activities. But bring your wallet, we've also got premier vendors of Sex Positive goodies waiting to tempt you.
Our Special Events are designed to educate, delight and encourage you to explore. Our presenters, staff and volunteers have been busy for months dreaming and scheming new opportunities for you to explore and play. Click on the links to the left to learn more. As you can see the overwhelming focus is FUN!
Don’t wait to lose yourself in Paradise. Early registration is available now. Registration is available to all SPCC members, members of other sec positive organizations and their friends.

The Gathering 2007

The gathering for 2006 is barely over and already we are planning for next year. Gene and family have done such an amazing job and we all owe them a debt of gratitude. They have decided to retire this year and have passed the job on to Brendan and I. We are delighted to accept and are looking forward to a great event next year.

WSIP Information
The Gathering
(Wet Spot in Paradise)
August 30th to September 5th
Held at The Longhouse in Redmond, WA.
www.thegatheringwsip.com




A Short Drive down a small hill into Paradise. A Short drive down a small hill can mean something to someone or anything to anyone, but to many it has meant fond memories of The Gathering-Wet Spot in Paradise which is only a short time a way.

A community, a place where you can be your self, a place where the Wet Spot steps outside its physical walls and comes together with the Longhouse as one community. A dream that started four years ago and continues today.

The Longhouse opens it doors, its heated swimming pool, its two hot tubs, flush toilets, hot showers, beautiful campsites, a place where we can hold extraordinary workshops, entertainment, and three meals a day.

Workshops feature the following instructors: Bridgett Harrington, Adam Jarvey, Jim Duvall, Leilani, Linda Young, Susan Hoover, Mark Silver, Tim Murray, Kathleen, and Jonn Ireland and more.

Entertainment includes Karaoke, a Night in the Pool with a DJ, a Strip Tease Contest with a Talent Show, Human Chess Games, Movie Night with a 10 foot screen and surround sound, Campfire night with s'mores and Memories you create on your own.

Relaxation is just around the corner and something you deserve.

A Special Invite to all: We will be holding an opening Unity Ceremony on Tuesday Night, August 30th. All who identify with any alternate lifestyle community are invited to attend free of charge whether you are planning to attend the Gathering or not. The Ceremony will begin at 7:00PM.
Following the Ceremony, Bridgett Harrington will be instructing "Introduction to Asian Aesthetic Bondage" free of charge to those who attended the Ceremony.

Advanced registration is $35 for each day you wish to attend.
Registration at the gate during the event is $40 per day.
