CORE FIRE PERIMETER VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
Vancouver CORE 2012 is still looking for perimeter volunteers! We burned a scale model of our effigy at BitF and if our effigy burns ANYTHING like our model burn, than we definitely need some help!! :)!!|
Please email [email protected] or send us a message on Facebook! http://www.facebook.com/
We’ll make sure to include you in our perimeter volunteer mailing list!!
(PS, we love all our volunteers A LOT!)
TRANSPORT OFFER FROM VANCOUVER CORE
Hey boys and girls,
The Vancouver Core Project is growing every day! We have more burners join us for builds every weekend. And now you can join us for the ride down as well.
We have extra room in our truck and are fundraising by renting it to you!
That is right, you don’t have to pack your car to the gills this year. We will take it down and back. It is really easy too.
Just bring your bins, tents, massive sleeping sets, and bikes (yes even bikes) over to my place on:
Sunday August 19th From 11- 5pm
1003 Queens Ave
New Westminster, BC V3M 1M4
That is at Queens Ave and 10th St.
I will be there with a big 2 ton truck ready to make your car lighter. It is a fundraiser to help us get things south so all we are asking is $25 for a bin, $40 for a bike. Have a bunch of stuff we can cut you a deal. We all win! If you have a large or heavy item you would like us to ship down please shoot me an email.
A few simple rules to get us through the border:
- Please label your bin/ bike/ whatever
- We need a written inventory of your belongings
- No fuels of any kind
- No water or food
- No illegal substances or paraphernalia
We will arrive on Playa on Wednesday the 22. I will give the truck’s location to people as they drop off their things.
To get your things home again it is just as easy. I will need everything loaded by 1pm on Sunday. Everything will be back to a secure location on Tuesday Sep. 4th.
If I could ask everyone to pick it up as soon as possible.
If you have any special needs or question please email me.
CORE ART WALK – Tuesday Aug 28th
Greetings Black Rock Citizens!
Megs from Team Regionals here telling you to Mark your playa calendar! You’re invited to participate in this year’s CORE (Circle of Regional Effigies) Art Walk from 2-5pm on Tuesday 8/28. We’ll meet at the Man at 2pm on Tuesday on foot, on bike, or on your art car! We’ll have docents on hand to showcase the CORE pieces (totaling 34 from around the world!) and to tell you all about the amazing projects, initiatives, and event that are happening in Regional communities all over the globe! Oh yes, and we’ll have a ton of fun! Bring you boogie shoes!
If you have an art car and are interested in showing folks around to the various CORE pieces, please email [email protected].
See you Tuesday!
SynerG GALA NIGHT – Tuesday Aug 28th
SynerG is thrilled to host our annual Gala Night at Reverbia Camp on Tuesday night. Come, bask in our lush decor & lighting, and snuggle in our cushy cush…and join the best jam session on the Playa!
Come play our instruments, or bring your own! All skill levels are welcome…come and join the live variety show that is taking the Pacific Northwest by storm! Play, sing along, grab a shaker, heckle, whistle, snooze or sit and watch. Up to you!
Calling BC/Washington burners… Vancouver, Victoria, Bellingham, Seattle plus surrounding areas & any of our friends! Wouldn’t it be nice to be sure to catch at least ONE SUNRISE?|
Wouldn’t it be nice to share that with the people you know from the default world?
- That’s what WE THOUGHT!
- An annual tradition, the last several years’ Wednesday morning PNW gatherings have been really great! An opportunity to see many people that you otherwise might not see at any other time during the week… Several people said they really appreciated the callout, as it ensured that they would catch at least ONE sunrise! And it’s a sweet time to visit the Temple, mid-week, mid-progress with everyone adding their words & thoughts…Meet you at the Temple, sunrise side, on Wednesday at 6am, & we’ll watch the sun rise together.
Nice & simple, bring whatever you feel to share, or not!
Invite your friends, campmates, associates… & we’ll see you there.FB RSVP https://www.facebook.com/
This might be our last year folks so make a plan to step out and see this kickin’ and awesome event! Stay tuned and check back for DJ line-ups, final location, libations (whiskey sours coming back!) and possible fund-raiser updates.
