If you want to meet more Vegas burners then you need to come to the weekly meetups at the Artisan Boutique Hotel over at I-15 and Sahara (It's across I-15 from the Palace Station). Monday nights from 6-8 there's a meetup...the Artisan has happy hour going on as well. If you come down, when you walk in the door and your eyes adjust to the dark (you'll know what I mean), the bar / cafe / patio is straight in and to your right. Look at the bar first then if you don't see any "burner" type people come on out to the patio.
The LV Regional is going to be building a larger version of their CORE project, Lucky Lady Lucy....but this time she's being built for the City of Las Vegas. If you want to get involved in a good project and make connections with the BM community here this is one opportunity. We also have a great fire spinning group, Flameology, that is a good group of people to know. Got questions on fire spinning? You'll get answers without the attitude some groups have.
I hope you can make it out one of these Mondays...this is a great regional group, it has some strong leadership and seems to be getting better and better! If you want to learn even more check out the regional website: http://www.lvburningman.com/
It hasn't been updated for a bit (It's still on playa time) but it's still got some good info there. You can also subscribe to the Lucky Lady Lucy Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/groups/170416519676413/
(Approval's required but easy to get for that one).
I hope this helps and I hope you can make it out to the Artisan!
