Will Beau Le'Phant return in 2013?

Postby Galaxo Magic » Mon May 13, 2013 5:31 pm

Well, the DMV said bring Beau back to the playa.

So, folks, as any one that has built or maintained a MV knows. A lot of work needs to be put in pre-playa to make sure every thing works. Plus, you want to upgrade the whole MV. So what we are looking for is one or two folks in the NoCal area of Chico that would like to help us in July as we put Beau together in a warehouse and make the upgrades.

Any folks in Chico that might want to help are welcome. Be it ideas for upgrades, parts or labor.

Thank you in advance, the Beau Safari Team

We need to rebuild Beau's front leg area after the fire at 7/A on the Sunday before the gates opened. Beau caught fire from a spark from the RV that burned. Quick thinking and big fire extinguishers from Temple Crew Camp and our camp saved Beau. We managed to cover the damage so Beau could enjoy BRC. However, we will need to rework the PVC and lighting.

An elephant trainer is a Mahout (pronounced mahoot).

I always thought "Head Mahout" was a great title! 8)

Hi,

I don't live in the area. Do you have a kick starter or fundraiser?

Gosh, I hope they don't.

Head Mahhot, I like it!

No Kickstarter this year, we'll cover the 'fixes' ourselves.

I have a pendant that allows me to get on Beau just about any time, so of course, I would love for Beau to return.

I remember that RV burn at The Masonion Institute. It's funny now, but at the time...

Have fun playing in Chico tonight!

Risky, you can ride any time! Of course, we don't turn any one away unless we are over capacity.

We still need an elephant handler.... I guess Chico is just too remote.... unlike the black Rock Desert ...
