Hello all Burningman Virgins and Veterans,
Every year we call out our Burningman Veterans to help prepare the Virgins for their first playa experience. All are welcome at this BBQ but especially the Burningman Virgins. We will share information on the 10 Principles (http://burningman.com/whatisburningman/about_burningman/principles.html ), and give everyone a chance to ask all the questions they have been dying to ask but didn’t know how!
We encourage as many Veterans as possible to come and share their experiences with the Virgins! We also invite theme camps to join us and share information about their camp with anyone who is interested. And we will do our best to educate everyone about one of most important Burningman Principles, Leave No Trace.
The Virgins don’t yet know what playa time is, so please come expecting the potluck (4pm) and meeting (6pm) to start on time.
THINGS TO BRING:
1. A DISH AND/OR DRINKS TO SHARE AT THE POTLUCK
This is a self-reliant, Burner do-ocracy, gift-economy style, Leave No Trace potluck! A Leave No Trace event means is that you are responsible for everything you need. Bring a cup, plate, napkin, utensils and afterward take everything you brought home with you…yes, even that Whole Foods container/bag that you brought your yummy food in.
* If you bring something that requires a serving spoon, please remember to bring that too, and take it home with you!
* Everyone knows Burners love bacon, but not everyone eats bacon, so please label your dish (vegi/omni) if it isn’t obvious! Vegetarians: please feel free to be creative and try to out-do the baconatarians! Baconatarians: don’t you dare let them!
* There will be a grill for people to use but no one to cook for you, so if you bring something to cook, make sure you stick around to cook it!
* This is a private park so alcohol is permitted.
The Bobalicious Grill will be serving pulled pork to raise funds for the porta-potty rental since there isn’t a bathroom at the lake. We are asking for a $5 donation to support the porta-potty fund.*
2. DONATIONS FOR THE COSTUME SWAP
We will be also have our annual costume swap. Please bring your extra costumes to share with the Virgins, and maybe you’ll find a special new something for yourself!
3. CHAIRS, BLANKETS, KIDS
This is absolutely a kid friendly event! There is a private lake attached to the park, so you can bring swimsuits and enjoy. There isn’t a lifeguard on duty so don’t leave your children unattended.
We will have some pop-up tents up so the event is rain or shine! If you have extra pop-up tents or folding tables please feel free to bring them. We will be there around 3pm if you want to help set up.
4. FIRE TOYS
If there isn’t a fire ban, fire play will be welcomed after dark! You must provide a safety/safety equipment to spin fire.
From Sheridan Ave (between I-70 and Hwy 36),
Go East on 69th Ave for 3 blocks.
The park is on the right at the first stop sign.
If you are going to google map it, use W 69th Ave at W 69th Ct.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email Denver@Burningman.com
*A note from Bobalicious: The Bobalicious Grill is not a business, just a fun name for my grilling adventures. I am donating the pulled pork so any contributions that exceed the cost of the porta-potty will go toward next year’s event or go to the Denver Regional Fund which supports your local Burningman community.
