# 5.28-30 Benjamin free party 415 705 0600 outdoor dance experience


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  Look under new projects for 


details and photos of the site.

Please RSVP to or by phone @ 916-685-6833

 The Bay Area Radical Health Collective presents a six hour training that
will teach activists with basic  first aid training and skills valuable
for protests and beyond. You will learn about primary assessment,  dealing
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
who wish to learn more about  providing first aid in an activist context.
This course will help you to be safer and stronger in your activism.
