Hi SW organizers & callers,
This came to our Belfast Flying Shoes email address. I've heard about Burning Man,
and imagine this would be a wild undertaking. Thought I'd spread the word, to cast
the net wide for Mr Stowe.
PS The Yahoo group seems to lay the vision all out (having given it a fast skim...).

Subject: first contradance camp in the 20+ years of Burning Man
Dear local dance/music contact person,
I am contacting a very large number of dance and music groups in the hopes of finding the
rare souls who can make a contradance camp happen at Burning Man. I would be enormously
grateful if you would post the email below to your local email list/ Facebook page, and
write back to me to confirm that you have posted it. (I am trying to avoid subscribing to
countless lists.) Please feel free to modify it or offer me your advice. Thanks so much,
and thanks for all your volunteer work.
Hi, I am organizing what will apparently be the first contradance camp in the 20+ years of
Burning Man (a week of extreme art in an extreme environment - http://burningman.com
Even though there are a large number of 'burners' who are contradancers, we need
to get this message out to as many people as possible in particular to be able to line up
callers and musicians.
In the discussion group
I lay out the logistical challenges and a preliminary plan for funding and otherwise
making such a camp a reality (it will be easiest if you choose 'view all' and
click the arrow that will reverse the default reverse chronological order).
I would be very grateful if you could pass this email on to anyone you know who might be
interested. I am sending this out to as many contradance discussion groups as I can, but
I won't get 'all of them' without help. Please post to the groups you know
and send me a note telling me what group(s) you have posted to.
Thanks and best wishes, Mark Stowe mkstowegnv(a)gmail.com
