two things coming up!

Dear North Bay Burners,

We have two cool things coming up that can’t wait for the newsletter. One, a local Burner is organizing to create a North Bay Decompression Street Faire. Check out Tony’s planning meeting below!

Two, we have found a little space to do a teeny campout, and you’re invited! Read on for more information about our upcoming backyard Burner campout.

Ok three things, save the date for the SF Decom! At a new location, and on a new day this year.

dusty hugs,

xoxo RLL

North Bay Burners Street Faire Planning Committee Kick-off

Friday, September 29 at 7 PM – 9 PM
19 La Cresta Drive, Petaluma, CA 94952

Tony McCoy is organizing a crew to make a North Bay event happen:

Save the date, and clear your calendars. BYOB, for sharing during this event.

Steering and Planning meeting for a Pre- and/or De-compression style street Faire event in the North Bay! Why should Oakland and SF be the only options? Many in the active BM art community live up here in Sonoma County, so let’s bring the burn regionally and represent!

Expect to bring your ideas and brilliance, as well as your energy and can-do spirit, and help shape the 5 W’s for this future event. We’ll need idea people, planners, organizers, fundraisers, writers , graphic designers, presenters, advocates and, well, especially North Bay Burners!

I will update the FB post with agenda and guidance for discussion soon. Just wanted to get the notice out immediately. Hope you can make it!

(Arrive early as parking is EXTREMELY LIMITED. Recommend you park down the hill at Webster and English or in and around Petaluma High School.)
