What part of your own theme camp do you want to contribute to spark a longing for the playa in others? Is this the year that you are finally bringing an art car? What ideas are gestating in that burny brain of yours that reflect the Carnival of Mirrors and Midway themes? Bring it --- make it --- show it off!

BBQ-A-Newbie Regional Picnic

Sunday, July 12th in Fremont

    One last hooray before we head for the desert. The South Bay and East Bay burners are hosting a joint meet and greet on July 12. Bring a dish to share if you can. We will have Bar BQís available it you want to cook something. Bring you swimming trunks if you want to go for a dip (sorry no skinny dippin). Shameless promoting for your project is encouraged but we need to keep it on the low down. Bring your swag to gift. We will have games to play and prizes to win, and rumor has it a water fight may break out. Mingle network and nosh before the big push to that experiment in the desert. Looking for a camp to join or looking for a couple more camp mates? Want to help out on an art project or maybe you need help with an art project? Are you a virgin eager to learn the ropes or a dusty expert or maybe you are just burn curious? We have rented out a pavilion so we will have shade. We will be kid and dog friendly. Beer and wine are allowed but no hard liquor. No amplified music is allowed but we encourage you to bring your acoustic instruments. The picnic is FREE as long as you register; you can register for the picnic at this eventbrite link.

We will be hosting the picnic at beautiful Quarry Lakes Regional Park in Fremont. Quarry lakes is 1.2 miles from the Union City Bart. Entrance is FREE if you bike or walk into the park and it is $5.00 to park if you drive. Quarry Lakes has swimming, hiking, biking, and dogs are allowed on a leash. The address to the park is 2100 Isherwood Way, Fremont, CA 94536. The park opens at 6:00 am and closes at 5:00 pm. We will start the Bar BQ's around 10:00, games will start at 1:00, mooping will start at 4:00. If you want to come early and help set up we will be arriving between 6 and 7 am.

This is the last in the 10 principle meet and greets the South bay Burners are putting on. The theme is radical self reliance. The park has graciously allowed us to set up a hexayurt, evapatron, swamp cooler and portable shower for your inspection.

If you are interested in fund raising or want to share or show a project or help set up and tear down contact us using this eventbrite link so we can work out the logistics.
