Can’t make it tomorrow but still want to pARTicipate?! 

The 2010 Café Décor Team is creating a massive amount of crazy, quirky, cantankerous, and comical street signs to go inside the Center Camp Café as part of the themed décor.  Got ideas?  We’d love to hear them!  See YOUR idea in the 2010 Café!!!

Tomorrow’s meeting will have a  SERGER SPECIAL: 

Get a sneak peak at the new, exciting, secret patched for 2010.

This is a SPECIAL call out for all your Crafterinos who love to sew, serger, and silk screen til you’re practically in a tizzy!  The 2010 Café Team is hard at work making this year’s schwag patches.  We’ll need to produce over 1,000 of these awesome little playa keepsakes and in order to do that we’re reaching out for your help!

Volunteers should come in clothes they are comfortable with getting silkscreen ink on.

Got a serger and want to help but can’t make these dates?  We’ll be able to sew faster, harder, stronger with your gear!  We’ll take amazingly good care of it and it will be stored in a safe place, patiently waiting your immanent return.

Garage Mahal Looking to Share Flat Bed Trailer Space
 
Do you have an art car or container that needs a ride to Burning Man? Garage Mahal - the magnificent double decker art car - is looking to share a flat bed trailer from San Francisco to the playa.
 
We have arranged for a long flat bed trailer that will leave San Francisco (Treasure Island) on or about Thursday July 26, arriving on the playa on Friday the 27th.  It will leave the playa on Monday after the burn.
 
Our mutant vehicle will only take up half the space, and so we are looking for another art car or container that needs to be transported so that we can share the $2400 round trip cost. There is room on the truck for a 20 foot container or an art car that is 20 feet long or less.
If you are interested, please contact Captain Ken at kdphelps@comcast.net. Thank you!
