Ok so it looks like i was shanghaied into running the M&G again and look forward to seeing you all again. The M&G is my favorite part of the burn and you won't want to miss it.

All Eplayans Welcome
I would like to reiterate that all Eplayans and their guests are welcome, regardless of post count. The first few hours of this event are closed to non Eplayans.

Food / Drinks
This is a pot luck type thing so please bring something to share as mentioned previously in this thread. We have seen some amazing food and incredible drinks at past M&G's and hope to make this year just as good.

Volunteers
Since we are burners a lot less formal volunteering is needed, however several things need to be tended in advance:

If you can help with one or more of these please let me know or post to this thread. We need commitments on these 4 things to make the magic happen.

1. Signage - An entrance sign

2. Name Tags

3. Set up help - 4 volunteers to show up early and help set up the bistro are needed.

4. Someone to organize the M&G greeters / bouncers. This will involve getting there a bit early and basically making sure that the greeters get relieved during the event so they can eat / drink / mingle too.

Casual Volunteering during the event:

Clean up - Mainly clearing tables as the food empties. Possibly replacing trash bags in the cans, and a final clean up at the end. Since we are non moopy burners this is pretty easy - if you see something that needs doing, please lend a hand.

Greeting - Work the door making sure they are Eplayans and give out name tags. This is fun because you get to meet everyone that arrives. If you are asked, please step up so we can keep greeter shifts comfortably short for everyone.

I look forward to seeing you all.

I will be there as far as I know. I am camping with a theme camp this year instead of solo so I don't yet know the timing of my other obligations. But regardless, I will find a way to get over and see you all again.

Last year was fun but this year will be funner and more bigly! :D

Drawing a blank, Thank you for doing this. (You swore you wouldn't do it again.) The last time was great. If you run short of volunteers just message me. I love greeting/bouncer. I'll bring hard salami, crackers, and weird liquor. Put me down for setup too

I'm also down to help, but considering I got distracted and didn't make it last year, I'm hesitant to volunteer and then get sidetracked and not fulfill my duties.

That being said, I'd be more than happy to help with Cleanup or anything else needed while there. I'll have my wife create an eplaya profile so she can come too! :roll:

MyLarry has never been on eplaya, but all the eplayans know him and one hopes, loves him.

Post some pics of your wife, tell a few stories, and she'll be eplaya famous in no time!

I don't think she'd be too happy with me if I started posting pictures.
She has been a slight topic of conversation on these boards in the past, but it was mostly because of certain eplayans saying that I was going to end up cheating on her last Burn (because she wasn't coming to BRC and I was camping with a sparklepony friend of ours). She wasn't the biggest fan of those posts. :twisted:

But of course that did not happen. I'm a good boy.

First burn and I am going solo.

I am not in the dust yet, but I don't think any of this would of been possible without this community.

The thoughtful responses, off the wall suggestions, and general guidance has provided me with everything I have needed so far.

I will try to think of something extra special to bring. Too bad I can't bring LeonardPotato (my name sake), he is a bad ass dog.
