2nd, smaller decom this weekend: FIRECROTCH!

if you're in town this weekend... our camp's been throwing parties for years and Decoms for the past 2. We're pretty extraordinary because of where we rock out, who attends and what we do. Although I have fun at other events I genuinely feel like ours take us back to the playa. We are sans money, sa...

...and apply glitter, in South Rock. I scouted the location today. It's a long drive but the roads are flat and hard and the directions are simple. It is a magincal place.

My camp has grown too big for its britches. We need a space to store our sets / infrastructure / car. Ideally a place with electricity. Day and weekend access to work / build things. We'd have only 1 keyholder. Occasional access to a faucet would be nice but not absolutely necessary. NOT picky about...

Turning your camp into a Non-Profit.

I'm thinking of incorporating our camp, making it a 501c3 non-profit that raises money for our art projects and gives grants to charities that our campmates have volunteered at or have been involved in.

Thoughts?
