Are you building a structure and want land/help?

Post by joiebotkin » Fri Jul 19, 2013 5:11 pm

Hello friends! I posted on a different forum but this one looks more relevant. Here's my story:
My wonderful Burner community has been a theme camp for the past five years and every year we've built a giant three story pyramid that has space for activities we offer and community/lounging space. However, this year instead of bringing the pyramid we're interested in building something else - connecting with a group that's has a structure, helping them build and joining together our camps. We're looking for a group who has a structure - ideally a structure they've already built at bm (tested and true), which would also ideally offer community space or be able to host an event (last year our event had 350+ people, about 50 at a time). We're excited to join together, build together, make new friends and create an awesome community that gives back to the playa!
We are a theme camp with a designated large parcel of land so big structures are great! We have lots of volunteers eager to help build, participate and make new friends. We're inclusive, openminded, laidback and community oriented, from S.F. and L.A. Lets get together and build something amazing!

You don't want to bring your own structure for your camp, you want someone else to bring one for you?

That does sound much easier!

are you KIDDING ME?

we need help!!

I'm madi, I direct the playa choir...

we've been rehearsing and singing on sunday mornings for the last 7 years, varied spaces on the playa...from Jazz Cafe, to PEX to recently the camp Playatel.
Playatel is the only space that has been big enough to house us, as we have grown to over 65 singers and a full audience on sunday mornings.

This year, however, Playatel does not have a theme camp and have not been placed. So I've been trying to get folks to help set up and tear down the dome, a HUGE dome, the old thunderdome to be exact. It's an incredibly beautiful dome, and I have some hands, but not enough to really pull it off easily, ESP for breakdown.

would you, could you, be our angel that could ensure that things are together for our wednesday first rehearsal??

please contact me directly at:

love love love,
Madi...

Hi All,

Camp Atlantis is building a similar sized dome to thunder dome at 4.30 and portal. We could use man power and advice! I know I need to get my hands on 3/4 dome hoists to support the weight of the dome during construction / take down, but I'm having trouble sourcing them - does any kind soul reading this have any ideas??

Thanks

Alex
