Pre- and Post-Event are where the REAL fun happens
EZ and Comrade Heathen have some super-duper volunteer opportunities to offer. Can you help with any of these?
The DPW, or Department of Public Works, is responsible for infrastructure — and because we’re in a new venue, that’s a big job! They need folks for Thursday, before the Burn, and Monday, after the Burn. The hours are 10 am to 6 pm, on-call. To sign up, email email@example.com.
This weekend, November 4-5, there’s a work weekend at the property — the more, the merrier! Come out to work and meet your Event Coordinators and team leads. You can work for both days or just a few hours, but bring chainsaws, weed-eaters, and implements of destruction. Wear bug spray, sunscreen, and gloves. Volunteer hours rewarded!
Also this weekend, CueTip needs help with effigy construction, starting at 8 am. Construction experience and tools are helpful, but warm bodies will also do. Volunteer hours rewarded!
HURRY! WWWW closes on November 4 at 6 pm
We’re accepting submissions to the Who-What-When-Where for a few more days — get your events and activities in there! AfterBurn: Restoration is going to be packed with nonstop fun, art, and learning, so be sure your offerings get listed. Use the Google form to submit your events.
Here are just a few of the items submitted so far:
- Introduction to taiji and qigong
- Who can collect the most Hugs for the Needy? Get your hug counter at The Hermitage — it might be you!
- Take the giant puzzle challenge at “Esoteric, a year’s growth” in the Indaba
- Get your morning coffee and snacks from Camp Java
- At the Tainted Tater: Saturday evening dance with DJ Goodwood’s beats while noshing on hot delicious fresh cut French Fries
- Bring your thoughts & positivity to “Inspire,” an interactive art piece in the center of our city
Got an idea to help your local community? Get a grant to do it!
Community Action Grants are intended to fund grassroots projects that help our local, Florida communities. Submit your idea now for a chance to present it at the Community Grant Salon at AfterBurn: Restoration. You can read more in the blog on the Burnt Oranges website. Here’s the link to apply — use this Google Form.
Community BBQ: Bring your plate, fork, cup, and appetite
You all know the importance of bringing your own cup to events at AfterBurn. But for this one, you’ll want a plate and a fork, too! The Board of Burnt Oranges is hosting a community-wide BBQ dinner at AfterBurn: Restoration at 8 pm on Friday, in the Indaba. There will be pork, chicken, beans, mac & cheese, slaw, and buns. Bob has noted a distinct lack of PIE on the menu, so if you want to bring some, or anything else to share, do it!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org for his favorite pie recipes.
Last call for RVs and other vehicular sleeping accomodations
Friday, November 3 is the deadline to submit your “Camping Vehicle Application.” If you haven’t registered it by then, you’ll have to sleep in a tent, like Bob does.
Got an extra ticket? Need a ticket?
There’s a Facebook group, “Florida Burns Invitation Exchange,” where you can post ticket requests and available tickets. Use this link to request access to the closed group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1443944539178932/
