In General (who am us anyway):

The California Morris Ale has been a spring time (April-ish) tradition for over 20 years.  It's a gathering of morris teams from throughout the state, the west coast, across the U.S., and internationally as well (we love to host our U.K. comrades).  We gather to dance, perform, and generally carouse, while sharing in that peculiar recreation known as morris dancing (but wait - there's more!)

Since the host, location, and website for the ale moves from year to year (usually back and forth between northern and southern teams), this website exists so that folks can always find the latest information by starting from the same place.
