glad you had a great virgin Burn. Let's face it; if you can't have a great time at BRC then there's not much hope for you as a human being.
As you're based in London you'll be able to get your fix of Burners throughout the year.
There's a fortnightly gathering at Burning Pub
and various events and fund raisers throughout the year for both Burning Man and Nowhere projects.
Get yourself on the Playadust
and London Burning
mailing lists to keep yourself in the social loop.
There's also the London Decom which is due at the end of November/first weekend of December. Be sure to bring along some mates to introduce them to BM and get them hooked for 2009.
If you've got any other questions feel free to email me.
