Once upon a time there was a bear. This particular bear really, really
liked Pic-i-nics, you see, and the bear's name was "Yodi" or something
like that. Anyway, like I said, he really, really liked pic-i-ncs, but
every year Yodi most looked forward to the annual Burningman Pic-i-nic
in Golden Gate Park. However, the burners were didn't look forward to
Yodi too much cause he was always trying to swipe the Pic-i-nic
Baskets. Well, those Burners were crafty folk, you know, so one year
they started to invite their Virgins. And as everyone knows, Bears and
Virgins are sworn enemies...This is where you come in...

That's right! Bring your virgins, your newbies, your dust-free friends...
And introduce them to the Burners in their backyard. This event is
open to all regardless of affiliation (yes, bring your kids
too!)...Saturday June 16, 11AM-6PM in Golden Gate Park...

***Silly Bear, Baked Beans are for Burners***

This here is a Potluck BBQ...
Bring something for the grill, or a dish to share, or drinks to
share. It's self-reliant, Burner do-ocracy, gift economy-style, Yodi!
After all, we're out to ed-ju-ma-cate them virgins on how we 'do it'.

*12 oz beer per adult, per hour.
*Enough grillable food for you and your group.
*Layered clothing that preferably sparkles.
*A good folding camp chair or picnic blanket.
*'Leave No Trace' garbage bags.
*Sunscreen & shades.
*Common sense, an open mind, and a positive, playful attitude.
*A Frisbee or ball is highly recommended.
*Coleslaw, Frito Pie, Potato Salad, Ambrosia!
*Goggles and face masks in case of dust storms or bear attack.
*Virgins! Newbies! More Virgins!

Like a BRC theme camp, a certain level of stuff will be provided: such
as charcoal,
plates, utensils, and condiments. You know, the basics...yes, condiments!

***The Deets***

*What: "BBQ A NEWBIE" Pic-i-nic.
*Where: Pioneer Log Cabin, Golden Gate Park, San Francisco.
*When: SATURDAY JUNE 16th, 2007, 11am-6pm.
*How: By Car, Bike, Bus or Foot. The Log Cabin area is plainly visible
from the 'Y' where Stowe Lake Drive branches off of JFK. It is just to
the west of the new DeYoung.
*Due to the new saturday parking policy in GGP, JFK will be closed
near our site, this could impact parking, so it is recommended that
you take tranist or carpool. Riding your bike is great too, especially
if you are carrying a covered dish. And less cars is more green,
