Great meeting last night at the BurningSNOW Center! We had a really good turnout of folks come to hear Candy Boy, Just Don, Eric and myself talk about the Global Leadership Conference, so much so that we never even got around to talking about the Ten Principles. We ran out of time because there were so many good questions and conversation revolving around the GLC and other topics. We spoke about two wonderful presentations that happened at the GLC, and you can find out more about them here:
New people came, and we had a great bunch of long-time Burners and newish Burners. Lots of discussions happened and plans made for future events. Ranger Cheesehead talked about the Milwaukee Beer Society’s events and would like to get a Burner group together to attend. Here is their site: http://milwaukeebeersociety.com
Speaking of future events, we’re thinking of these topics below for May, but we’d also like to send out a survey to our Wisconsin Announce List (that’s you!) and find out what you want to hear about. We’d also like to get some Build Dates on our Calendar, for folks who are interested in helping us conjure up a new and improved, lit up, giant snowflake sign for Snowflake Village. So, while we look at our calendar to pick some build dates, on May 21 we can talk about…
** How To Get To The Event and Back – Driving? Flying? Swimming? What’s the Best Route?
** Cooking Recipes – Eating Well or Just To Stay Alive?
** Leave No Trace – Why This Is Really, Really Important.
In the meantime, there’s talk of creating a special interest group such as Tesla coil building. And Ranger Cheesehead is thinking of bringing to the next meeting or any meeting, some small scale propane art that anyone can do. So, mark your calendars for our next get-together:
7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
BurningSNOW Center for the Experimental Arts
2578 N. Weil St.
Our last two Monthly Meetings are planned for:
July 16 – Newbie Night! Our big extravaganza for all those who got tickets at the last minute and are like, “Oh, No! What Do I Do Now????”
Thanks again to everyone who came to last night’s meeting! You gave us valuable insight and information and we’re looking forward to having a great Burner summer with you guys! Can’t wait to see who comes to next month’s gathering!
