A summer South Bay Burner Picnic has become a tradition for the past several years. We’ve called it the BBQ-A-Newbie picnic, and it’s certainly a way for virgins to get some playa orientation. We’d like this to be a get-together for the entire community, too, and one way to do this is the proposed “Theme Camp Speed Dating”. No, it’s not about finding a hook-up hottie for the playa; the idea is to have many of our 60 South Bay Theme Camps (www.southbayburners.org/sbb-theme-camps/) talk to the newbies and match up campers with the type of playa camp that most appeals to them. We plan to also host a Costume Exchange(give a second life to your favorite playawear) and Camping Equipment Exchange (old coolers, outgrown tents, things you don’t use anymore because you’ve upgraded), and a Make-it-&-Take-it bike decoration station.
– Something to grill or feed 3-4 people
– Loved-it-but-over-it playawear for the Costume Exchange
– Gently used camping equipment for the Equipment Exchange
– Info about your Theme Camp to share with the newbies
