As you may have been hearing, we have Conception coming up the weekend of the 14th of July. The Lamplighters in SL will be opening and closing as usual, and as usual we like to find a fun way to do it. Come join us and throw in some of your ideas! We also have a couple of other events to look forward to and get ready.
You can always drop a notecard on the Elders – iSkye Silverweb, Freia Guillaume, or Dream Wrexan – if you have an idea, suggestion or offer of something to share or do. Meeting today at 10:00am SLT (4th of June), as we usually meet on the first Sunday of each month. Come join us, find us on the playa somewhere.
The Lamplighters will gather for their monthly meeting on Sunday the 8th of January at 11:00am SLT, on the BURN2 playa. Come join us, help test our dragon for our walk-ons and walk-offs. Also, if you are a Fire Dancer, contact Dream Wrexan in world and let her know which times you can be available for the Fire Dances.
We also have a signup form for you to use to let us know when/if you can participate at the event. Look for the inworld group notice with link to the form.
This event is going to be extra fun!
…for this lovely video of the Fire Dancers just before the Temple Burn last Sunday.
We are called to perform the last four processions of this festival, today the 22nd of October, and tomorrow the 23rd of October.
Please arrive 30 minutes before each scheduled procession time.
10:30am SLT for the 11:00am procession followed by the 12:00pm Burn
4:30pm SLT for the 5:00pm procession followed by the 6:00pm Burn
Fire Dancers, be ready to perform upon arrival at the Man (Saturday) and Temple (Sunday)
I have some information to give about our schedule with processions on the two Burn days. We will follow abbreviated procession routes on Saturday and Sunday, details will be in a group notice sent out Thursday night.
At both the Man and Temple Burns, Lamplighters will be in attendance to lead the community to dance after the Burns. The Man will Burn on Saturday the 22nd of October at 12pm and 6pm SLT; the Temple will Burn on Sunday the 23rd of October. Lamplighters, especially Fire Dancers, are asked to be at the Lamplighters Village by 10:30am SLT and 4:30pm SLT to get ready for the processions.
In closing I leave this link with you, a beautiful thing to ponder as we look ahead to the Temple Burn and closing of Da Vinci’s Workshop, “DEAR GUARDIANS – A Burning Man Short Film”, created and uploaded by Ian MacKenzie.
Our Press Day event was such fun! We did a ride-on with Lucy which was hilarious. Quite a feisty old girl is our Lucy!
We drove all around the playa even through fire (!) and passed up all sorts of slow moving mutant vehicles along the way.
We’re looking ahead to tomorrow and beyond – and we want you to know our procession schedule, so here it is. All times are SLT.
SATURDAY October 15: 10:00am and 6:00pm
SUNDAY October 16-Friday October 21: 12:00pm and 6:00pm
