Burn in the Forest tickets update
Okay folks, three days remaining to get in your requests for ticket transfers and such. The Registration Team wraps up their work on July 7, 2012. After that, you’re on your own to figure shit out.

The only way to get a ticket to BitF at this point is to put your name on this shared doc & hope someone phones you before Saturday when they realize they have an extra ticket. The transfer process requires the new person to fill out a form, so please get your reggie transfers in ASAP, ie not at midnight tomorrow night!

This sheet is NOT administered by the registration team but by event participants! Radical Self-Reliance… and stuff. All your questions are likely answered at: http://burnintheforest.com/tickets/

Oh and if you just got your ticket, go see the announce msgs you may have missed, with things like things to bring, etc… they are archived here: http://burnintheforest.com/participate/announce/

Rangers & Peer Support WANT YOU!

Howdy Folks,

My name is Wrangler.
For those of you who don’t know me, I am from Victoria and just finished leading our regional event Otherworld. I am excited to be leading the Ranger team for Burn in the Forest with Andrew Martens. We are also working closely with the Peer Support team.
I am writing you today because we need to have a few more volunteers for both teams.

As a Ranger, you will take responsibility to ensure people are having a good time. Just walk around and checkout 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 a Peer Support volunteer, you will take responsibility for your fellow guests. Our primary goal is to ensure there is a safe place for people experiencing a crisis. Our gift is to provide the warm comfort of a hot drink, some water, or maybe just someone to listen to you. We are here for you. When you are ready we make every effort to reunite you with your friends to ensure you have the community support you need.

Together, the Rangers and the Peer Support teams represent the backbone of our community. Our gift to the community is to make sure everyone is safe and having a good time.

The practical requirement to be a part of these teams is to volunteer for one four hour shift and be sober.
We have a highly recommended training workshop
Saturday, July 7th
12pm to 5pm
1738 Parker, just off Commercial

If you can make it, please RSVP so we know how many people to expect.
If you get lost, please contact my Ranger Lead partner, Andrew at             604.269.9463
The workshop will cover conflict resolution, active listening, communication, rangering, and peer support.

If you would like to volunteer for Rangers or Peer Support, please register and sign-up on the website:

See you in the forest,
~ Wrangler ~

Pre-BitF work that needs to be done in Richmond

Hi all.
So, there’s a bunch of work that needs to be done this Saturday, July 7th. These tasks include simple carpentry repairs, white-wash painting, and making signs. We’d love to have your help – in fact, please come and help! Wear appropriate and safe clothing (ie no open toed shoes) and if you have tools that you’d prefer to use yourself, please feel free to bring them too.
11am ’til we’re done @ Lummox and Robert’s place – 2200 No. 6 Road, Richmond.
Cheers, Pi – on behalf on the Production Team

CORE Life Tree Build day!

Life Tree will be holding a public build party this Saturday July 7th @ 1:30pm (yay!). We have lots of leaves to cut for our tree and we’re asking for some community help!

We’re looking for people who may have used a circular saw before (or feel confident using one) and others to help hold boards for cutting. Please RSVP at [email protected] or on our facebook event page at: http://bit.ly/LifeTreeBuildParty1 so we know if we have too many volunteers.

We’ll bring the saws and saw horses, you just bring your wonderful selves!

With some community help we don’t expect the building to go on too long (just a few hours), but we are hoping to turn this into a mini-afternoon-potluck-get-together.

Come for the build and stay for some snacks and drinks so we can all get to know more of our community! Help by bringing some snacks and beverages of your own!

If you can’t make this one, fret-not, we’ll be having at least 2 more build events leading up to the burn! Also, those looking to help in different ways, or have unique skills that they want to offer up, please email [email protected] or message the facebook page at: http://www.facebook.com/BurningManVancouverLifeTree2012

The address is 1784 east 7th Avenue; it’s about a block or so from Commercial Drive Station, come in the back, building starts at 1:30pm.

Hope to see some of you there!
