I'm considering it. I have a friend who's interested as well.

I'll be there, along with my BRC camp buddy Peter and his family, and several of his buddies from Davis (like we did last year). Peter and I will both participate in the new Pedal Car Figure Eight Race. :twisted:

It might make sense to have an ePlaya Meet-n-Greet both Saturday and Sunday. I'll be there both days (actually, from Friday), but it is too early for me to know what sort of "camp" name I can be found at.
I'll be sleeping in my old bus, probably on "RV row" against the fence in the parking lot.

Cool idea - I know some of you (Hi Elliot), good to get to know some of you other cats.

Here is the business end of Lux Tonalus (BM 2009) hooked up to Charlie Gadeken's "Aperion" (Solid State Tesla coil) @ MF2011.

been wanting to go to this but Symbiosis is the same weekend. Since that is at Pyramid Lake this year and so close, I will probably be at that.

Have fun and see you all in August.

I'll probably be going with my sister and brother-in-law, but I don't know if they want to go on Sunday or Saturday. Or if they get it together at all, really.
I'll try to find you, Elliot.

Word is, we'll be in the South Lot, with the other bicycle-related groups and activities. Tentative schedule for Figure 8 races is 11 am, 1 pm, 3 pm, 5 pm and 7 pm on Saturday, and 11, 1, 3 and 5 on Sunday. This is my entry:

The RV lot is hardly scenic, but last year there was some BBQing on the deck of my flatbed trailer. :D

I'll ride down Saturday - FLG is there with the Cochlea from Tympani, and Flux has BrollyFlock.

I'll swing by Nila & KK's RV afterwards - listen for the mortar rounds and look for the camo.

Just got back. Met up with Marty, Oscillator, Killbuck, Nila, Gaminwench, many others... don't remember much at the moment -- sunburned, tired,... happy.... Conquered the Whiskeydrome. Was awarded blue ribbon for Steamroller. Maybe pictures later.
