Meeting on 1/13/2016

We met online today using Google Hangouts and it ended up working really well. I like the idea of meeting in person, but this is a great tool for sharing the meeting for those who need to catch up after.

We talked about camp fees and the process of getting people registered for the camp. At this point we are expecting about 25% of the 2014 camp coming back. We are alos looking into the group for new leaders who can help drive the camp. Changes include:

  • Mary is taking a stronger role for the kitchen and Kevin says he is going to help back her up
  • Kevin is also another good candidate for being more in a lead role in camp in general
  • Doug is taking the lead on a couple projects he says he can build at home including:
    • the sign letters
    • the new shower
  • We have some additional projects in the groups tab at the top that are also needed
  • We talked about the camp fees and they seem fair. We are including a level that allows people to opt out of the kitchen scenario and food plan

2016 Sun Guardians

Hey, this is Toaster. Been working on the plan for 2016. I do not think it will be as much as work as it was last year, because we have a lot in place and a few places to fine tune. It seems basic on the surface. Pending a discussion with my key players many of the details for 2016 are already on The “Joining Sun Guardians” Page and the “Burning Man 2016” Page, too.

  • Do we have the leadership we need?
  • Is there a way to bring a more solid plan to the playa?
  • How do we prevent, what has been an epic fail 3 years in a row, when it comes to breakdown?

This lotus blossom is unfolding… be amazed.

We will need:

  • stronger sound management and system
  • rigging and planning manager
