Does your camp what to light lamps?

Some of the head mucky mucks had a bit of info they asked me to share with everyone here:

FYI Everyone.

So get to your communities and try and recruit theme camps or groups of burners.

Many hands make light work.

What exactly is involved with a group "sponsoring" a night of lighting? I'd like the details so I can post them over on the Eplaya.

Badger

First off, if a group of folks shows up to light, we aren't turning them away!!

It would be real nice though if we could get enough groups signed up on different nights so we can make sure to spread it out some. In return for this commitment from them (besides the joy of lighting and our undying thanks) we'll make a concerted effort to see that they get signed up together on a route.

Also, chances are that by the group making the commitment to show up together, they're more likely to come and more folks in their group will be able to make it if they know about it in advance. (Like us saying we'll go do a Greeters shift, they know we're coming and we know to be ready for it way in advance.)

How does this happen?
Real easy. Someone from their group emails WaterDragon@burningman.com with an approximate number of folks coming and a preferred day they want to light. She'll confirm. Then we see them on their chosen night to light.

Unofficially, we go visit them on the afternoon of their chosen night and lavish them in affection and praise :)

Tastes Like Playa,

Miss Jellybean

So that's it. Drop Waterdragon an email if your camp/group would like to take things over a bit for a evening.
Don't worry, we get you back in time for all the evening/night fun. :)

I've volunteered with the Lamplighters the last couple o' years, and it's one of my favorite things to do in the city. I'm looking forward to doing it some more!
