Well hello there.....
I see this made it over here after our dear,nice guy, Smokey got chewed up and spat out. Poor fella!
For anyone wondering, No, this really doesnt bother anyone spinning fire at Burningman festival. (Unless BM LLC makes it a rule,which it hasnt.)
For all you's out there that think Controlled Burn(my Fire Conclave) did this? Please take a step back and get informed.
We have had to have a Regulated Fire Marshall card, to spin in large public venues for almost a decade!!! I kid you not!
The Nevada Fire Marshall Imposed this against us so many years ago, Im not even sure when the exact date WAS??? Its just ALWAYS been that way. The only fight That Controlled Burn did do was to fight for our Children who spin with us. We have had in the past our own flesh n blood children, who can out spin the crap out of us, spinning with us legally with no Fire Marshal card, as it was unsaid, that if the parent was there with a FM card we were good. Then...Sparks, Nv got a brand new Fire Marshal from another state??? We had a gig, all permitted etc....they had never seen Fire tools and wanted to put that into our inspection process as well(all new to us,&%@#$)!
Well we all layed our tools down for her to inspect and when the kids layed theirs down along with all ours...she said WHAT? No Kids...we said um ya! These Our KIDS not just kids we grabbed on the side of the road here, these are professionally trained kids. So thus far started our war against Sparks, NV. We dont spin there hardly anymore because of the uphill hell they put us through. And because they wont even entertain the kids performing, at all.
So what we got was a formal law that gives our children a way to still be there (in some shows) some they just wont and we cant do anything about it.
Please read through the post on CB's website. Its the only way to get the whole story.
And understand that Controlled Burn is only attempting to keep Fire performance a legal thing, not like most of the rest of the Country, hiding in back alleys,Rooftops or warehouses to enjoy their art! Thats not fair. So we made sure WE (our families) will ALWAYS be able to spin legally. Dont like it? Dont move to NV.

We have more rights here to spin fire then most states! Dont forget that one!
