Next Ranger Training June 9th !!

Please sign up if you want to reserve a spot. Send an email to [email protected]

With Burn in the Forest around the corner our second Ranger training is on the horizon. This is an excellent and very important way to contribute. If you’ve ever thought of being involved as a Ranger, then come out to the training on Saturday April 27th and join the team!Venue TBA
Time 12 noon – 5pm

We will cover conflict resolution, active listening, communication, rangering, and peer support.

Wrangler did a great job of explaining what we do:“As a Ranger, you will take responsibility to ensure people are having a good time. Just walk around and check out the action. Our gift is to mediate conflict using non-violent communication. We are an ambassador for the event and a source of information. We are the first responders and need to maintain communications within the event.”

As our events get larger and longer we need to build up our team. For a three day event, we need at least 24-30 Rangers, for a four day event, we would need over 40 people. That’s a lot of volunteers, and without your help we just won’t have the numbers needed to make sure everyone is safe and having a good time. So you can see how important it is to get as many people trained as possible.

We are combining peer support into our Ranger team so if you would like to be one of our peer support Rangers you will need to do the Ranger Training.

It is important to note that this is a Regional Training not an official Burning Man Training. This will allow you to Ranger at any of the Regional Events in and around BC.Even if you aren’t sure of your summer plans yet, come on out and get some training on what it is to be a Ranger. It is an afternoon full of great discussion and great company !

We need you to RSVP so we know numbers. Send an email to Andrew through [email protected]

Best wishes

Ranger Andrew

Calling ROCK STARS who work with ART and ARTISTS at Regional Events!

The scale of art at Burning Man is staggering both in size and numbers.
Have you ever wondered how we deal with all of the logistics such as pre-event artist registration, art placement, art support services and the hundreds of other details related to the awesome display of art?
Ever wondered how this all relates to your Regional Event and if there are any lessons that could be brought back to your event?
Ever wanted to meet all of the great artists who populate the Playa with all of that great art?

Well, we have something for you.
We are looking for volunteers and interns for the ARTery who are involved in the art process at the Regional level.

What is the ARTery?
Check it out here.
http://www.burningman.com/installations/artery.html

This would be a great opportunity to learn from each other and for us to find new folks who might be a good fit for our team.
Let us know if you are interested by emailing here and please make note that you are a Regional Art person and please indicate the Regional area you work in.

Thanks all!

The Cascadia Burn
Date: (June 17 – 23)

Facebook Event: https://www.facebook.com/events/155270697968098
Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/BurnBC/
Website: http://burnbc.org/

Hello folks,
Next month we embark on a little adventure to a spectacular location to finally Burn the Baboon Robot.
Last summer we made an attempt to renegade Burn on the edge of the city.
We came close, but not close enough.

So now we are heading to Carpenter Lake, to the Gun Creek Campground, where a 2km square area of open space awaits our return.
It’s a stunning location with a well kept campground next to it.

Being remote, no one cares what we do.
While we are close to Goldbrige BC, and just over the Hurley Road from Pemberton, we are far enough away from everything that we shall bother none.

I am dragging a very large sculpture in a full size school bus.
We have room for 6 people who want to split gas and enjoy a nice camping trip for a week.

Once there, it’s your playground.
If you want to help get the Baboon Robot there, drop us a donation to help with gas.
If you want to bring something to set up and make noise/music with…

Do IT!
Drop me line if you have any questions.
