Newbie Night BRC Orientation (Chicago)

July 25, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 9:30 pm

| Free

If you are making your virgin voyage to the big burn in Black Rock City, this orientation is for you. After a bit of time for introductions, Flipit, Hambone, and guests will explain how the city works, offer playa tips for you to survive and thrive and most importantly, answer any burning questions you still have about getting ready for – and making the most of – Burning Man (And yes there are major differences vs preparing for Lakes of Fire).

At 9:00 or so, we’ll make time for introductions from ChiCARGO, Cobra Bus, and any other veterans who want to invite virgins to participate in their playa-bound art, theme camp, or volunteer opportunities. Then we’ll wrap up with some social time and cleanup of the space.

The event is free. Please bring snacks or beverages to share.

Presented by your Chicago Burning Man Regional Contacts

See you 7/25 @ 6:30(-ish) and… Welcome Home!

Flipit & Hambone on behalf of the Chicago Regional Contacts.
