# CALIFORNIA CAMPOUT - MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND - FREE!
Since Flipside sold out, we are inviting our fellow burners to join us
for the long weekend. So, in conjunction with the Sacramento regional,
we are hosting a burn at our Memorial Day campout on private property
near Cottonwood, CA. The site is a wooded 1000 acre undeveloped parcel.
It is very private yet easy to reach in any vehicle. The potential is
unlimited so bring your projects to try out or share
with fellow burners.
There will be portipotties and lots of nice areas to camp under shade
oaks. Lots of free firewood and we'll provide the basics for a BBQ on
Saturdayevening. We'll fill the evenings with DJ tunes so if you spin,
bring a set to share. A kitchen area will be set up as well as an area
for fire performance and our fire circle.
There are no tickets to buy nor are there any other charges. For
details checkout http://www.dragonsorb.org Look under new projects for
details and photos of the site.
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone @ 916-685-6833

with pepper spray and other policeweapons, treating wounds and sprains,
herbal first aid, and emotional aftercare. There are no prerequisites and
no prior medical knowledge or experience is necessary. While this is a
basic class, it is also useful for people with advanced medical training
