Hello fellow Burners,and welcome to all you first-time Burners!
In our sophomore year, Vedges&Gimps Camp is now recruiting new membership.
If you are someone with a disability(namely of an ambulatory nature,but we also have a few with borderline-mental ones...)who feels they might need easier transport around the playa in order to explore,network,visit other camps,or maybe(heaven forbid)get to the medical tent,we welcome you to join us.
This year we'll be aligned with Hot Wheelz Camp,who have also focused on the needs of handicapped Burners for several years.
We'll bring 3 handicapped-authorized vehicles: a Jeep and 2 customized golf carts.
And if you are reasonably able-bodied, we also need to hear from you. We want you as part of the newly-founded Black Rock City Department of Transportation!
This might include driving all around the playa in one of our carts, or assisting those getting on and off any of our disabled-friendly vehicles.
It'll be fun and will allow you a great opportunity to see all that can be seen at BMan'08 and make new friends, all while participating in a very good cause!
In addition to those benefits, we expect to be placed near Center Camp;the "hub" of Burning Man. We also expect to be connected to the electric grid,which allows us power usage without total reliance upon gasoline-powered generators.
But it's important to share that we also will need gasoline(a dirty word!) to fuel our 3 handicapped vehicles. We require that our members bring at least 5 gallons of 'extra' gasoline to keep those vehicles running all week.
Vedges & Gimps Camp/B.R.C.D.O.T. is limited to only providing the aforementioned transportation services,and very limited camping space.
You are responsible for bringing in your own food,water,and other necessities,as well as packing out all of your waste and recyclables.
E-reply soon.Time's running out!
Or call (510)452-7231.
