Now the details:

Bring your virgins, your newbies, your dust-free friends... And introduce them to the Burners in their backyard. This as an event FOR and BY Burning Man volunteers and their NOOBIE friends... (yes, bring your kids too!)...

***All Burningman Departments will have representatives on-site to answer your questions about the Burn and to fill you in on how you can help!***

Whether you are a Burning Man veteran, or are a virgin burner "NOOBIE" who wants to meet burners and learn more about the event, this picnic is for YOU!

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! After all, we're out to ed-ju-ma-cate them virgins on how we do it in Black Rock City.
