Lakes of Fire 2011: Anima Mundi

Postby Info-bot » Sat Feb 12, 2011 1:37 pm

Hi Everyone:

It may be snowy out, and colder than dark side of Neptune, but the organizing cycle for this year's event has started. Lakes of Fire 2011's location details will be available in a few short weeks, if not sooner, and we are tentatively still a go for June 23rd-26th, as originally planned. Great Lakes Experimental Arts, Inc. is thrilled to announce that a theme has been chosen for 2011's event:

ANIMA MUNDI - "The Living World"

"Therefore, we may consequently state that: this world is indeed a living being endowed with a soul and intelligence ... a single visible living entity containing all other living entities, which by their nature are all related." -Plato, Timaeus

No matter how outgoing or insular we choose to be, we remain inextricably connected to our living world. What is it in a sunset, in the smell of wet earth, or the touch of a loved one that ignites us so completely? We're all of the same place, wrought from the same raw stock, and we have existed together in one form or another since matter came into being.

In the woods of Mastodon Township, Michigan lives an extremely rare life form thought to be thousands of years old and estimated to be nearly forty acres in area - a fungus called Armillaria Bulbosa. Very little of this venerable creature is visible to the naked eye, and its moods and aspirations are unknown. Thousands of miles west, in a dry and dusty prehistoric lakebed known to have been frequented by mastodons, a great festival celebrates largely invisible connections. With Lakes of Fire 2011: Anima Mundi, we seek to forge another link in this chain of connection.

The Armillaria Bulbosa, as old as mastodons, approves.

And so does your organizing team for Lakes of Fire 2011: Anima Mundi!

TEAM LEAD CALL-OUT!!!
As we prepare to enact another amazing Lakes of Fire, your organizing team is looking for a few new Team Leads. Co-Team Lead moties (motivated individuals) are being sought to share Team Lead duties with out existing Team Leads in the following areas:

Parking
Volunteer Co-ordination
Medical
and
Rangers

We are also seeking a motie to act as Team Lead for the Sound Squad.

If you can make regular Monday evening Conference Calls, and want to help make Lakes of Fire 2011 a reality, please respond to contact burn@lakesoffire.org as soon as possible, and your Info-bot will plug you in with the person or animal to whom you need to speak. If leading a team is not for you, but you still want to volunteer, just go here: http://www.lakesoffire.org/volunteer-ipate/

Thanks!

Stay warm!

And see you at Lakes of Fire 2011!

I can't answer your poll at this time-- I am transferring to first shift in Housing, and they don't honor time off requests from second shift--Physical Plant. (You've got to love bureaucracy!)

As boss of the Effigy crew for LoF I'd just like to giggle to myself about how cool our design for Effigy is.

Your new late-June home includes a freshwater, no-wake, no-gas-motor lake with over a mile of shoreline; catch and release fishing; but no lifeguards, so be well aware that you swim at your own risk.

I just realized that in bumping up the pier's thread I'd knocked your important message off the top a mere 7 minutes after you'd put it up. And that seemed kind of... well.... rude.

So here you go....... a bump back up for you and your wonderful event which I must also miss due to living in the wrong damned place yet again.

I really have to consider moving!!!!

Ticketing went live at noon yesterday, and by 6PM we were approaching the halfway-sold-out mark!

I guess I'm not surprised, really....it's a hell of an event.

In one week, Lakes Of Fire is 75% sold out. If you have any desire to go, buy your tickets now. You literally probably only have days.

Lakes of Fire 2011::Theme Camps::Conclave::Principles/Safety

Postby Info-bot » Thu May 05, 2011 5:16 pm

Aloha!

Summer is right around the corner, and Great Lakes Experimental Arts, Inc. wants you to know that tickets for Lakes of Fire 2011: Anima Mundi are currently on sale through the website: http://blackrocktickets.com/buy/12/

Tickets will remain on sale until sold out, or until Saturday, June 11, 2011, 11:59 P.M. E.S.T., whichever comes first. Get your tickets soon! We are approximately 90% sold out, so don't delay!

Lakes of Fire volunteer organizers insist, in a friendly way, that you read the Survival Guide, found here: http://www.lakesoffire.org/survival-guide/ . . . . . like, all of it!

If you're unaware of this important info, you risk being removed or denied entry into Lakes of Fire! And that's no fun at all.

Though the ticket price at the higher tier has increased, Lakes of Fire remains a very affordable experience. We accomplish this by enacting a 100% volunteer-run event. http://www.lakesoffire.org/volunteer-ipate/


THEME CAMPS, ARTISTS, & WORKSHOP EDUCATORS:
Theme Camps, Workshops and Art Installations are your gift to the LoF community! This is your chance to radically express your vision and share with the everyone. With your participation, LoF becomes a unique expression in time, the year it was better!

When you register, your vision gets support from the Placement Team. You get a reserved spot that fits your needs and you get marked on the LoF 2011 map. When you sign up on the What Where When bulletin, you get free marketing for your space or event.

This year we already have a cinema, performance stage, supper club, improv dice, a lighthouse maquette, hoop making, Kidville, henna, frontier science, dancing, chilling, snuggling, body macrame, poi lessons, a hot mess, a canned ham and a wedding!

All projects needing placement must register in advance online no later than May 31st. http://www.lakesoffire.org/event/theme-camps/

The Placement Team will contact all artists, educators, and theme camps to discuss space and aesthetic needs.

After you’ve registered your camp, please give us your entry for the What Where When bulletin. http://www.lakesoffire.org/event/what-where-when/ You will be contacted for details about your listing.

Someone from your group must be on site by Friday, 6-24, 12:00 noon to hold your reserved placement location.

Maps of the land will be published before the event. You’re encouraged to print your own copy and bring it along.

Theme camps wishing to have sound - even if it’s just a boombox – must advise the Placement Team about the level they expect to have. They will then be placed with consideration to other sound camps and campers. Camps above a certain wattage (tbd) will be subject to special placement.

The deadline for registering theme camps is May 31st, 2011.


FIRE CONCLAVE:

If you want to perform in Saturday night's conclave around the effigy, you need to sign up here: http://www.lakesoffire.org/event/fire-s ... rmers-q-a/

A representative or your group must contact Conclave or sign up at the above link before June 1st, 2011, to apply. Email your shin, Doxie, at shin@lakesoffire.org for more information. Details of participating with Conclave will be sent via email to conclave applicants. As all fire art should be, Conclave is run in a safe, sane, sober and legal manner. Those who wish to participate in conclave will be required to follow that motto and any other requirements of the Shin, Doxie: shin@lakesoffire.org

CAMPING:
Lakes of Fire is a 76 hour outdoor event. You're expected to rely on yourself for all of your basic needs.

Here are some of the very basics you will need:
Tent, Bedding (sleeping bag/pillow), Changes of clothes (both warm and cool weather), First aid kit, Sense of humor, Rain gear, Matches/lighter, Bug Spray, Swim suit (maybe), Towel, Sun screen, Flashlight, Food, Water/drinks, Ear plugs, Eating utensils, Cookware, Garbage bags, Bacon

Failure to bring these necessities will result in way less of a good time.

You can find more information here: http://www.lovetheoutdoors.com/camping/checklists.htm .

There will be a designated area for RV’s & trailers, open camping, and quiet vs. loud (sound) camping. You will be able to drive your car to deliver your gear, but will then be asked to put your car in our parking lot, where it belongs. If you require electricity, please bring it.

LEAVE AT HOME:
Fireworks - they are illegal in the state of Michigan
Guns or weapons of any kind
Pets - aside from ADA-qualified assistance dogs
Glass - a serious impediment to our Leave No Trace Principle, if it breaks. Cans are preferred.
Firewood from outside the state of Michigan - this is also against the law due to bug infestations.
Illegal substances of any kind.

PRINCIPLES:
Our rules, regulations, and binding principles are simple, and can be found here:
http://www.burningman.com/whatisburning ... iples.html

The distilled version is this:

1) Ask first
2) Protect the community
3) Leave no trace

There are to be no sales or concessions, of any kind, at Lakes of Fire. Do not attempt to hawk your wares, whatever they may be. Lakes of Fire is a commodity-free zone.

SAFETY:
Lakes of Fire is a 76 hour outdoor event. You're expected to rely on yourself for all of your basic needs.

Please prepare for rain, wind and other extreme weather. Failure to do so may result in way less of a good time. Beware of toxicodendrons-radicans (Poison ivy). Leaves of three? Let it be! toxicodendrons-radicans are found mostly, but not exclusively, in the wooded areas of this property.

Unlike the playa, West Michigan is home to a variety of wild animals. Participants must take measures to ensure their food and trash are properly secured and stored where unwanted raiders cannot find a meal, make a mess, or create a health hazard.

If you're severely allergic to bee stings, or bug bites, please make sure to take the appropriate precautions. A once-over check for ticks before you leave is a good idea as well.

Please be aware that there are no lifeguards on-duty on the beaches of Lucky Lake. Swim at your own risk, and always with a buddy.

We encourage self-reliance in all situations, but some medical precautions are in place, including a volunteer medical team, and an on-call ambulance if needed.

There will be more information coming soon!

Can't wait to see you at Lakes of Fire 2011: Anima Mundi!

Love,

our principles.

check out this link!

THEME CAMPS & WORKSHOPS!
We have a new What Where When Events form! Please take a moment to
fill this out, even if you filled out the old one.

WANNA BE A LAKES OF FIRE RANGER?
Lakes of Fire Rangers are looking for your help this year. This is an
exciting opportunity to spend a couple hours helping other
participants have a safe and enjoyable event. In order to ranger at
LoF you must first complete a training session. This year we will
have 3 sessions available.

Detroit-Sunday June 12th at the Detroit Temple 1pm

Chicago-Wednesday June 15th at Shoebocks's house 7PM (email
drshoebocks@gmail.com for address and directions)

LoF on site-Friday June 24th at 2PM meet at Ranger HQ.

These trainings typically last 2 hours and are completely separate
from Black Rock Ranger training. If you have any questions about
rangering at Lakes of Fire please email rangers@lakesoffire.org.


Here's some critical information, specially designed to prevent you
from having any less of a good time.

SOUND: PROTOCOLS
All sound protocols are subject to change, pending further site
inspection, and a wide variety of circumstances both before and
during Lakes of Fire 2011: Anima Mundi.

Excessive sound is the single most likely reason that law enforcement
officers will visit Lakes of Fire and, incidentally, your campsite.
Speakers, in general should be placed OUT from the center of the
event.

The protocols are as follows.

1) You must report the sound equipment you have with you at the Gate,
upon entry, even if it’s just a boom-box.

2) The Sound Squad (Rangers, Organizers, and Sound Team Volunteers)
may ask you to turn your volume down to safer levels, or even
completely off. Respect these requests.

3) All sound equipment 200 Watts or larger *must* be registered prior
to the event on the Lakes of Fire theme camp registration page -
ttp://www.lakesoffire.org/event/theme-camps/ If you are bringing lower
powered sound equipment or musical instruments, please check with the
Gate volunteers for information on where to set up your camp. Ask for
a placement or Sound Squad member at the Gate to get your placement
finalized.

4) You may not use sub-woofers after 11:00 P.M. on Thursday, June
23th; 11:59 P.M. on Friday, June 24th; or 2:00 A.M. on Sunday, June
25th. Sub-woofers can be turned on again at 11:00 A.M. Friday- Sunday.

5) Total decibel output may not be more than 95 dB at 20 paces/40 feet
after midnight, and may be no more than 90 dB at 20 paces/40feet after
2:00 A.M.

The Sound Squad will be monitoring sound-levels with decibel-readers
at all times. Failure to comply with their requests will be grounds
for your removal from the event. If the police arrive with noise
complaints, they may be directed toward camps which are suspected of
violating our Sound Policies. Unfortunately, Lakes of Fire 2011 is not
blessed with five square miles of open playa. We have a relatively
small location, and local neighbors on whose good humor this event
depends. The Sound Squad asks that all camps and participants respect
the needs of our neighbors and keep sound output within reasonable
levels.


EXODUS: GET OUTTA HERE!
Lakes of Fire ends at 3:00 PM, Sunday, June 26th. All participants
must be packed up (including your trash!) and out of the gate by that
time. No exceptions. This allows DPW and EG volunteers to do their
job. If you'd like to volunteer, see the volunteers section. Please
adhere to Exodus directions from the Gate/Exodus staff. It is vital
that the local community be respected as people leave the event. This
means that everything you pack out ends up at your own home, NOT on
the side of the road or in private dumpsters!


DPW : WORKIN' IT!
Lakes of Fire happens in part through the hard work of a few bold
soldiers known as the Department of Public Works. Our focus is
providing the infrastructure, power, and grunt necessary for the event
to run smoothly. The DPW reminds you that if it's not yours, don'tmess
with it. Things put in place by LoF DPW, like signage and safety barri
rs, are there for a reason. Please respect those things and avoid
damaging or altering them, lest you be damaged or altered.


RANGERS: YOUR FRIENDS.
Rangers are participants just like you. They are the eyes and ears of
the event, and their purpose as volunteers is to facilitate a positive
and safe environment for their fellow participants. Rangers wear khaki
clothing with a LOF Ranger logo. They will be walking around during
the entirety of the event and are easily flagged down. You can also
stop by the central Ranger station, which can be found on the map.

Rangers prefer that you practice radical self reliance first and ask
them for help second. However, all participants are encouraged to ask
for assistance when they need it. Make sure to hug Rangers as they
pass by your camp. That way you know they aren't just a robot army.


MEDICAL: YOU NEED A HERO?
A volunteer Medical Team will be on hand to assist and triage any
medical problems or injuries. On-duty Medical Team members can be
identified by their yellow t-shirts. Additionally, any Ranger will
also be able to assist you in obtaining medical assistance. The
Medical Tent will be clearly marked on the Lakes of Fire map. You may
seek assistance there directly. They will then be able to facilitate
bringing you to the Medical Tent or the ambulance to you if necessary.

Self-reliance is one of the tenets of Burning Man. Please help us to
help you by bringing a basic first-aid kit with each group, and
knowing how to use the contents. If you have a pre-existing Medical
condition that you feel may become a problem during the event, please
make a campmate(s) aware of it so that they may be of assistance to
the Medical Team. If you have any questions, feel free to approach any
on-duty medical personnel.

Please do not call 911 directly yourself. Instead route the request
through a Ranger or Medical Team member so that we remain “in the
loopâ€

Lakes of Fire 2011::Kids::No Pets::Pics & Vids::FIRE!!::

Postby Info-bot » Sun Jun 12, 2011 12:45 pm

Hey Hey Hey!

Lakes of Fire 2011: Anima Mundi, is just around the corner. Time to
bring out your wild side and start thinking about the what kind of
creature you are!

Lakes of Fire 2011: Anima Mundi
Thursday, June 23rd - Sunday June 26th
Lucky Lake Campground
3977 W. Wilke Road
Montague, MI 49437
(Rothbury exit)

Sorry, the last tickets for Lakes of Fire 2011 were sold this last Saturday.

If you couldn't get tickets, we at G.L.E.A. Inc. suggest you try
reaching out to your local community by going here:
http://regionals.burningman.com/na_index.html Click on the green
button that represents your area, and then see how to get in touch
with other burners in your area. THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING!

Please remember that Lakes of Fire and G.L.E.A. Inc do NOT operate a
"will call" booth, nor are there ANY cash sales at the gate. Our
policy is "Won't Call." You are responsible for any ticketing
transfers to or from other participants. If you're over 13, bring your
bar-coded ticket! If you're under 13, a non-bar-coded ticket will
suffice.

We still need more volunteers to fill in our empty slots in the Lakes
of Fire volunteer Schedule this year, especially with the Parking,
Greeters, Medical, LNT and Ranger Teams! Follow the link below to
volunteer at: http://lwww.lakesoffire.org/volunteer-ipate/ or email
breedlove@lakesoffire.org

There is more information on Fire Spinning and Flame Effects below. As
a brief reminder, if you're bringing any art piece involving fire, we
need to hear from you BEFORE the event! Please write to
flameeffects@lakesoffire.org and send us a description along with any
plans or photos/video you might have.

To keep our agreement with the fire marshal, we need to know what's
coming, so remember to check in with us (Fire Safety and Performance).
Our camp will be on the road you come in on. All flame effects will
be "tagged and bagged" on the way in, but contacting us first
expedites this process.


KIDS: BRING 'EM!
Lakes of Fire is a family event that welcomes participants of all
ages. Here's a Facebook group of LoFers who put together Kidsville!

http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=152841608112861

People under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a 21+ parent or
guardian both at entry, as well as at all times during the event. You
are responsible for the welfare of minors in your care. Please be
aware that there may be adult-specific activities or theme camps, and
that grown-ups may not wish to curtail their own free expression to
accommodate your children, or minors in your care.

Minors 12 years old and under will be welcome to join Lakes of Fire
free of charge. Participants 13+ must pay the full ticket price.

For the protection of kids at Lakes of Fire, all parents & guardians
are required to register their kids (or minors in their care) at the
greeter's station. If you fail to adequately supervise minors in your
care, you will be ejected from Lakes of Fire, immediately. No
exceptions.



PETS: SORRY!
With the specific exception of ADA Qualified assistance dogs, pets are
NOT allowed at Lakes of Fire. The Event volunteers have chosen to
adhere to this rule, and we have puppies too. Your pet will be turned
away at the gate and you won't be admitted until you return without
any pets.



PHOTOGRAPHY: PROCEED WITH RESPECT!
Lakes of Fire is a private event, and we expect participants to
approach photography with respect for others. There is no filming
without express permission. You have ultimate responsibility for your
image, and should ask photographers or videographers how your image
will be used. You must ask permission before photographing someone,
and avoid photography that could be intrusive of someone's privacy. Do
not take or publish, in any manner, ANY unauthorized pictures of any
human subject, or any pictures for a commercial purpose. We reserve
the right to act on any violation of these guidelines by requiring
erasure of images, or by removing violators of these policies from
Lakes of Fire.

No commercial use of photographs taken at Lakes of Fire is allowed
without the express written permission of Great Lakes Experimental
Arts, Inc.



)( FIRE: YOU KNOW YOU LOVE IT!
Fire is a spectacular part of our event. Volunteers are working with
local fire authorities to safely enact the best fire effects possible
at Lakes of Fire.

PERSONAL CAMPFIRES-- You can make small personal campfires in the
provided fire rings or bring fire barrels. Please use common sense.
Clear an area around your fire, don't have it too near your tent, and
keep some water or dirt on hand to put it out if the wind kicks up. Do
not, ever, leave a fire unattended!

)( FIRE CONCLAVE-- Sorry. Signups for spinning fire in conclave are closed.

Details of participating with Conclave will be sent via email to
conclave applicants. As all fire art should be, Conclave is run in a
safe, sane and sober (and legal) manner. Those who wish to
participate in conclave will be required to follow that motto and any
other requirements of the Shin, Doxie (shin@lakesoffire.org).

FIRE SPINNING-- All participants are welcome to spin fire at their own
risk as long as proper safety procedures for your art are followed.
Our deal with the local authorities stipulates that all fire on the
grounds--including poi/tools and any other fire art -- will be safe
and legal. Not sure how to do that? We will have a pamphlet for all
fire artists at the gate. A few things to remember: Never leave
unattended fuel on the ground, always have a fire safety with you with
an extinguisher and/or wet towels on hand.

Please do not spin fire in the pine woods; the dried needles are very
fire prone and the land owner politlely requests that we not set his
woods on fire! Again, Safe, Sane and Sober spinning!

)( FIRE SCULPTURES, POOFERS AND OTHER FLAME EFFECTS-- The big stuff,
if you will. Even big stuff needs to abide by the Safe, Sane and
Sober motto of operation. If you wish to bring larger-scale fire art,
you must contact Fire Safety Team Co-Lead - Russian Wulfgar at
flameeffects@lakesoffire.org. Note: this is for non-poi/spinning
flame effects, Group II and above. Failure to contact the Fire Safety
team regarding these devices will be grounds for their disuse during
the event. These devices can only be used in open areas, not among the
tents. The Fire Chief has a right to inspect them for safety. They
must be attended at all times, have emergency shut-off valves in easy
reach and have a fire extinguisher nearby.

The Fire Safety & Performance Team is here for your safety! FSPT staff
has the right to shut down any use of fire that threatens other
attendees, endangers the event, or breaks our agreement with the local
fire authorities. Failure to abide with Fire Safety protocols may be
grounds for your immediate removal from this event. FSPT recognizes
and abides by NFPA Section 160 and all other applicable laws and
expects fire artists to do the same.



ART CARS & MUTANT VEHICLES!
Mutant vehicles are a unique type of art that is welcome to roam Lakes
of Fire. If it has a motor and is not completely powered by human
propulsion, it's considered an Art Car or Mutant Vehicle. Art Cars
typically resemble the shape of the vehicle they're made out of and
are radically decorated, turning a car into a mobile work of art.
Mutant Vehicles however, are typically radically modified/mutated
vehicles transformed to look like something other then a car or truck.

Both Art Cars and Mutant Vehicles are welcome at Lakes of Fire. Owners
are required to pre-register, sign a waiver, and license their mobile
art at the Greeter's station. Owners are responsible for the use and
behavior of their vehicle during the event regardless of who drives
it, and agree to only drive in approved areas of the event, to yield
to pedestrians, bicycle, Ranger, and Medical traffic.

That's all for now!

See you at Lakes of Fire in just two short weeks!

xoxoxo,
