but it will deff. change the feel of this years event coming up in Mid May.
By this I'm assuming you mean that issues such as vending and whatnot will be discourged/banned?
FWIW, I heard from friends who did attend that it was an interesting gathering. The humorous part that was conveyed back - and this ISN'T meant as a hit or jibe at you guys - is that it good number of people trying to put it on last year decided that they wanted a "Burning Man' style event but that most of the shakers in putting the thing together had never actually been. Also hear that the land where the event was held was pretty damn cool.
I'm also trying to get a feel for some fellow there along with his wife (I believe) who's been setting up similar gatherings in and around NM for a few years now. The friends I mentioned who attended did in all honesty get a mildly weird vibe from one person there who they said called (or alluded) to himself as being the 'leader' of the 3sidedwhole 'family.'
Not having been there myself I'm sure that the devil is in the details but have to admit that 'leader' in any context remotely related to BM automatically raises a flag for me. I'd be interested to hear your take on the event and not so much on my concerns. I really don't mean to suggest that the evnt is anything other than a gathering of likeminded souls but I am curious as the friends in question are pretty observant lads.
