Greetings Ceinwen, 
Don't know if your zip falls in to Gate's Edge, Stargate or Westgate, but as you are in Cypress,
there are lots of members living on the west/northwest side, playing with all three groups; you
may want to check out their lists and websites to keep up to date on activities near.  

*Lancaster Community Center has an arts night on Wednesdays, located at FM 529 between Barker
Cypress and Fry.   
*Westgate hosts A&S night at the home of Thomas and Kemma on 2nd and 4th Mondays, and they are
located at Fry south of Clay, we hold scribes night on the 4th Mondays; on 8/23 we'll begin
looking at Acanthus Leaves and start painting them in Sept.  
*Gates Edge scribes meets 2nd and 4th Tuesdays, at 1960 near TC Jester.   

When I visited Caid (sis lives there) was told most events are day-only that end around 6pm,
though Caid does some camping too.  Many events in Ansteorra will hold a dinner-feast, then folks
head home around 8-9pm.  We tend to consider a 3-hour away event a 'day-trip'.  Also, there will
probably be more camping than you are familiar with; but so much goes on in the local area, you
can still event without camping till you guys are geared up for it.  Though I hardly camp anymore
these days...getting old and slow.  

All in all, you will have fun exploring the different kingdom customs and habits.  
Welcome, Hillary
