Re: 2018 One item a day for BM list

Yay. Heater and air conditioner fixed in my van. It broke because of excessive dust in the blower motor. How did that happen?

Sewing like crazy to fix shade structure decor. Next up....Playa laundry. I can't be the only one that unpacks a bin of playa.

Re: Walls made of Shade Cloth?

I have to agree. I have a carport set out clam style. (Flat topped roof with the legs left off of one side.) The top and back have a custom sewed tarp. One side has a end-cap coverlet made of jersey material. It bowed in too much in the wind so I sewed some nylon straps across it. The front has choi...

BRCpics, thank you for such a great gift. Having pictures of your event cements the memory in your brain. It's also useful for fundraising and necessary for camp placement. The City is divided into sectors. Each sector has a FB page. Keep in mind that events don't happen as planned. Thanks again and...

Re: The Bar 2018 Edition

It's the volunteer season. As all the individuals and departments make that last push to the playa, everyone could use a hand. Yesterday Census wrapped up some loose ends. Today I'm off to help Center Camp with decor. Maybe I'll start on my own prep soon.

Re: Ticket requested for cook for art installation crew

KlaraM, I had to google Jeff Schomberg to see which artist he is. Yes, he does fabulous work. I'm sure he has a big crew at his art installation camp. Why didn't the cook get an opportunity to buy a ticket through his Designated Group tickets? Good luck on your search.

Oh no Elliot. You don't get off that easy. Eplayans can debate the best pee bottle for more than 6 years. You might as well resign yourself to talking about dicks on this board ad infinitum. You might even get a playa name in the bargain.

That explains Center Camp with art and seating but how did a wild gathering that shuns money decide to open a coffee shop? Don't get me wrong. I'm not knocking it. I just think it's odd.

Re: Connecting Shade Cloth with clips?

What is the finished size. I can't picture cutting 12 x 100 and sewing 60 feet of it. A serger? They cut the fabric as you sew and finish the edge. You just need a sewing machine. Straight stitch.
