Participation Picnic - San Francisco (June 1st)

Postby trilobyte » Mon May 13, 2013 3:43 pm

This excellent annual event will be happening on Saturday June 1st at Hellman Hollow in Golden Gate Park! Come one, come all to an awesome potluck style BBQ picnic. Newbies and veterans alike, even bring your dust-free friends who don't quite get why you're packing up and heading off to the middle of nowhere at the end of the summer. Introduce them to the Burners in their backyard. This as an event FOR and BY Burning Man volunteers and their NOOBIE friends... (yes, bring your kids too!)…

Complete details haven't yet been pushed out through the Jack Rabbit Speaks or SF regional group newsletter, but I'll re-post the info from last year that's not likely to change.

***Burningman Departments will have representatives on-site to answer your questions about the Burn and to fill you in on how you can help!***
Whether you are a Burning Man veteran, or are a virgin burner "BURGIN" who wants to meet burners and learn more about the event, this picnic is for YOU!

This here is a Potluck BBQ...
Bring something for the grill, or a dish to share, or drinks to share. It's self-reliant, Burner do-ocracy, gift economy-style! After all, we're out to ed-ju-ma-cate them virgins on how we do it in Black Rock City.

PARTICIPATION PICNIC SURVIVAL GUIDE...
"You must bring everything with you to survive the pic-i-nic"
  • At least one 12 oz beverage per adult, per hour.
  • Enough grillable food for you and your group.
  • Layered clothing that preferably sparkles.
  • A good folding camp chair or picnic blanket.
  • 'Leave No Trace' garbage bags.
  • Reusable cup.
  • Sunscreen.
  • Common sense, an open mind, and a positive, playful attitude.
  • Coleslaw/Frito Pie/Potato Salad/Baked Beans/Ambrosia.
  • Goggles and face masks in case of dust storms or bear attack.
  • Burgins! Noobies! More Burgins!

Somewhat like BRC, a certain level of stuff will be provided:
Such as charcoal, plates, utensils, and condiments. You know, the basics...
yes, condiments!

Enjoy a (hopefully) sunny afternoon in the park with music, games, activities and Burners like you!
