December NorthBayNews

Dear North Bay Burners,

Holly Happidays! I hope you are all snuggly and warm and staying dry out there. Loving these rains…

Come celebrate the season by going around and around on the ice with us. For those of you who might not know, Salon isn’t just for newbies! Anyone can come, and really all we do is talk about Burning Man. You know, what we did last year, what we want to do next year. And then if anyone has questions I’ll try to answer them, and we talk about plans for projects and that sort of thing. So don’t be shy, Salon is for you too. So come play with us.

Ho ho ho, hoes!

xoxo RLL

The Burning Man Project has rolled out it’s nifty new website design, the first since 2004 when I started attending the Gerlach Regional. Ah, those dusty memories! But I digress. Check out the beauty here

and also know that our northbay address has shifted to the .org as well. So you may now reach your regional contacts at

Most of the old links and such should roll over, but feel free to update your favorites and move on over to the .org with us.

Salon will be at the Snoopy Ice Rink this month. I love me some ice skating, so you are just going to have to risk your ankles and get out on the ice. Or stay in the cafe and drink hot chocaolate and laugh at me through the window. I really don’t care! I’ll be having fun no matter what. And that my friends is the reason for the season. So come share!

And I know I said Salon’s not for newbies anymore, well really we only have one of those a year but someone said that people think it’s only for n00bs. Did I mention that mostly it’s crusty, dusty dorks discussifying TTITD? Well usually it is, just us chickens. Bok! so don’t feel shy. Everyone is welcome!

Snoopy’s Home Ice • 1667 West Steele Lane • Santa Rosa, CA 95403
