Inland Empire meet and greet

Postby reznorock » Thu Jan 02, 2014 3:11 pm

Ive noticed there really isn't much going on in the I.E. and was thinking it would be cool for a get together out in the area , especially for those new to BM, and those that have been on previous occasions,to meet up and talk about BM, preparation ideas, maybe here a few stories, and of course meet burners.

I was personally thinking maybe jan/feb, no idea where though but would love to hear some thoughts on the matter from anyone that would even be remotely interested in this endeavor.

Welcome.... there is a group out here in the IE... but not an official region - yet. We're about 25 strong. These past three years have helped each other with builds, sharing, logistics and resourcing for BM. We usually have a spring time gig out in the desert where we camp and basically meet and greet. I replied to your PM. Please don't post the name of the event here. When we do, the posting gets deleted because its not official.

I e-mailed you back about all of that. the spring event sounds interesting. wish I had known about the naming of topics , id have named it something obscure involving the IE and squirrels.... of course it's not an actual event yet though now is it, more like a prospective one. technicalities might save the thread yet haha.

People organizing a casual/informal meetup in their region... okay. People using the board to promote their campouts and events... not okay. And promoting unofficial stuff as Burning Man regionals.... definitely not okay.

I'd encourage you to meet up and connect. You can have fun, look for ways to share resources, and get organized. You may even want to reach out to the Burning Man regionals team to look into what's needed to establish an official regional (just about every regional group started out with just a handful of people).

I think a meetup of people around the I.E. would be pretty handy for the new folk as well as the vets looking to get some new hands to help out. im a little surprised there isn't a regional for us as it covers a lot of area.

What about organizing around a theme camp or village? Events can be geared towards prep for the playa or fundraisers or whatever. Those seem to have been acceptable on here at least in the past.

I'm still trying to figure out the LA regional. There seems to be a lot of burny events but since they're unofficial, they are difficult to find unless you know people.

That's the same way it seems in San Diego. I hear about plenty of events after the fact but never in enough time to go.

I imagine there are probably a lot of official unofficial events people hold, I suppose it's just a matter of knowing someone that knows about it before it actually happens.

Anyhoo, make sure to join up for the LA regional newsletter as we are going to have our regional campout (BEquinox) in late march out in Joshua Tree. Also, the San Diego campout (YOUtopia) was a few months ago and was amaziballs.

I think the inland empire could definitely draw the numbers to form up a region. It's just a matter of getting organized and then getting in touch with the regionals team (like all the other regional groups do).

It's been a few years since I lived in LA, but when I did it was pretty easy to connect with local events and goings-on. Sign up for the regional mailing list, and check in with the regional group on FB. It generally includes both official and unofficial items of interest. After numerous abuses over the years, Burning Man made the decision that they just don't want event and party spam on ePlaya. This post has more info on our event posting guidelines.

I believe you are correct, and obviously being organized really is what gets anything going. I suppose it's just a matter of time.

I do understand about the party spam on the forums, although I am curious to know if specific subforum sections have been considered for random things like "parties" and unofficial events just to keep the rest of the forum clean, or if it's simply a matter of giving the wrong impression to folks.

The good news is many of us from the Inland Empire will be having a camp at Burning Man - Camp No Drama. First meeting will be early in February. We have about 15 already stating - YEAPPERS and I am a go.

Regarding region for IE, I have inquired and it always seems to get pushed aside. Not saying that is bad thing, but each year we inquire and each year it gets more attention. So come late February, I will once against inquire... one day it will happen!!!!

When and where? I have been looking for some burners for 2 years now. hard to find. I know that the OC group uses Yahoo to keep in touch. also we could use meetup .com
