There's plenty of space for tents, art, and alternative structures. If you plan to bring an art structure please let us know before the event so we can include your project in the party space.

MICHIGAN BURNERS REUNITE POST-PLAYA
Saturday, October 9 – Warren, MI

A full night event 8:00 PM October 9 until 8:00 AM Octomber 10, featuring all of the energy, art, food, fun, music, random costumes, odd installations etc. that you wish to bring and share with your fellow Michigan Burners. Please come prepared for the elements.

This is a leave no trace event -- clean up after yourself even those pesky cigarette butts! Sorry, 18 and older this time; an all ages gathering will be coming this winter. If you drink don't drive home until you're sober! If you are underage, please don't drink. Fire play is welcome outdoors, please bring safety supplies. We'll have a bonfire so bringing wood or other (non-toxic...) items to burn would be great! Tents, campers, 10x10 shade structures etc. are all welcome. You are absolutely welcome to spend the whole night with us and wakeup to Cooky's Pancake Palace in full swing.


LOCATION:

TimTV's dojo (Warren Main Ukiyo Dojo)
11380 Kaltz
Warren, Mi 48089
The building is about 3 blocks south of 10 Mile about 2 blocks west
of Hoover. You'll be in a "light industrial" area. Look for a line
of lights outlining the path to the entrance at the dojo.


We'll be using a little bit of the inside of the dojo but not much, since we need to keep those gorgeously polished practice floors nice and clean for the regular students. But, we will have access to real indoor toilets. Most of the setup including the fire pit will be in the large, nicely private fenced in area out back. This is where you'll find the mini camp setups, the music, the fire, and the joyous people playing and sharing and laughing.

Bringing Stuff / Doing Stuff:

If you want to bring something big like an RV, a mechanical elephant, or a theme camp please email me directly. If you want to do something cool and interactive please do, but if it involves permits or power or something like that please email me to work out the logistics.

See you all on the 9th!
Cooky & Roger the Plumber
Michigan Burning Man Region

RSVP: Please send an email with your name and how many folks you think you're bringing so we can be prepared. michiganburn
