Sisters and Brothers, you have only until tomorrow, Halloween, to purchase your tickets for the Brown County Chocolate Walk at the lower price of $15. Starting November 1, 2009, the price will rise by 33%! Now is your last opportunity to get your tickets and make arrangements with me, your Chocolate Priestess, to carpool with myself and the Chocolate Coconut Acolyte to this event on November 14, 2009, from 10am until we finish or it is 5pm.
This is what you need to do to participate in this Pilgrimage.
1) Go to the event's link and purchase your ticket.
To do this as an official part of our Pilgrimage you also need to do two more things:
2) Become an official member of The Chocolate Cult via the "Followers" list on this site or through Facebook.
3) Carpool to the event because remember the environment we save means more room for growing the necessary components for the Sacred Substance.
To carpool, please send me an email (thetammyjo via gmail) and let me know if you want to a ride or if you have a car you can use to help transport people. The Chocolate Coconut Acolyte's car can hold three more passengers and hopefully we'll get one or two more cars volunteered. Once these are volunteered to meet in Bloomington, Indiana, I'll let those know who have rides where exactly to meet around 9:15am that day so we can meet, get into the cars, and then head over to Nashville. If you go with the official group you'll get your picture and thoughts published on this blog about the experience.
In terms of money, you'll need to pay for your tickets, $15 now or if you wait until November the price rises to $20, bring some money for any thing you might want to buy including lunch if we stay that long, and a dollar or two to help the person volunteering a car to pay for parking and gas.
I hope you will join us for our first official Pilgrimage with The Chocolate Cult.
In other news, I have the winners of our "2009 Halloween Treat Challenge".
Since this was our first year with any challenge I was pleased that three of our four categories were filled. Here are our winners all of whom will have the right to place a free ad on this blog for 30 days. Each will be contacted to be told they won.
