This year's summer regional event for Toronto Burners - mOOseman weekend - is set to return to our new Moose homeland Minden, ON. Our site this year remains curiously pristine and beautiful, awash in Moosey memories and will be adorned with loving art from our pARTicipants of course, including a new effigy template to be offered with a porcine aspect. The site includes "community" style features such as a 30’ diameter rock formation fire pit with access to a conventional Kawartha style public beach approximately 5 km or a 5 minute drive from the site. There are several paths through the woods in the conventional Kawartha style as well, crafted with equal parts forethought and force. Lamplighters invoke the magic of the arcane LED sciences to provide just the right amount of light for those whispered Moose utterances in the forest. There are songs and long trailing echoes of moonlit laughter that echo long after the thump thump beats are turned down in the knowing anticipation of the forthcoming dawn. Tickets may - and should - be purchased by pARTicipants 19 years of age or over via the Eventbrite link above and in-person at drink nights in Toronto (check the BurnT facebook station or try email below) starting the week of May 18, 2014.

This event adheres to these 10 core principles:
http://regionals.burningman.com/network_principles.html

Volunteering
An event of mOOseman's magnitude needs many hands and minds to come together to be a success. Given the scale of this year's event, it is critical that all pARTicipants volunteer to assist in some capacity to make the event a success.

We're all volunteers so why not join the fun of working to make the event happen?

Email campwarhol [ at ]gmail com NOW to get involved and watch for news, updates and call outs from the Team Leads who need YOU! Even a couple of hours of your time before or during the event will make it run that much better. Volunteering is also a great way to meet or get to know our community pARTicipants better.

Art & Art Grants
BurnT is committed to supporting and funding where possible interactive, collaborative, community art. We welcome all pARTicipants to create art at mOOseman that will enhance our collective experience. This is your chance to satisfy a deep soulful desire to create and share your work with others in a non-judgemental, supportive, an inspiring environment! Be creative, think outside the box and tell us your vision! Together, in all modalities of artistic self-expression, we create the magic that is mOOseman! Please email to burnon.artgrants@gmail.com to request and submit an art grant application. I encourage all new people who have never put in a art grant to do so!!

YOUR pARTicipation
No advertising, commerce or spectating. Mooseman is about pARTicipating and respecting the 10 principles above. We're not about promoting commercial or political causes, participating in commerce, or showing up to be entertained. Bring yourself to the event and make mOOSeman 2014 a success by getting involved.

General Camping Area
The camping is gorgeous with a versatile terrain, which includes a small central crevice that is nestled between two forested hills, circling back to a majestic stone fire pit. In keeping with the natural beauty, minimal camp structure is encouraged in this area. Generators are strongly discouraged. Fires and all sources of open flame may be banned in the general camping area, depending on regional conditions. This is real camping: electricity and potable water will not be available in the area. Foodstuffs and organic refuse should be kept locked away, thereby not encouraging camp invasion by wildlife. There is a public lake with swimming a short (5 km) drive away.

In & Out Policy
Site in and out access for cars will be restricted during the weekend due to space restrictions. Please email campwarhol [ at] gmail if you will require in/out privileges.

Fire & Fireworks Policy
Fires are entirely dependent on environmental conditions and local burn policy. Fireworks are NOT permitted at the event. Weapons are NOT permitted at the event.

Children
The leadership team is currently working with a parent committee to include children in some capacity at Mooseman. We will announce our policy with regards to this next week - week of July 4th. Please email the address below if you have any questions/concerns/points to make about children attending this event.


Pets

Requests for pet admissions will be considered on a per-case basis to the leadership team. Please email the address below with a statement of the pets character as well as a management plan for the pet or if you have any questions/concerns/points to make about pets attending this event.

Leave No Trace
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We are all expected to clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
