Pre- and Post-Event are where the REAL fun happens

EZ and Comrade Heathen have some super-duper volunteer opportunities to offer. Can you help with any of these?

The DPW, or Department of Public Works, is responsible for infrastructure — and because we’re in a new venue, that’s a big job! They need folks for Thursday, before the Burn, and Monday, after the Burn. The hours are 10 am to 6 pm, on-call. To sign up, email heathen@burntoranges.org.

This weekend, November 4-5, there’s a work weekend at the property — the more, the merrier! Come out to work and meet your Event Coordinators and team leads. You can work for both days or just a few hours, but bring chainsaws, weed-eaters, and implements of destruction. Wear bug spray, sunscreen, and gloves. Volunteer hours rewarded!

Also this weekend, CueTip needs help with effigy construction, starting at 8 am. Construction experience and tools are helpful, but warm bodies will also do. Volunteer hours rewarded!


HURRY! WWWW closes on November 4 at 6 pm

We’re accepting submissions to the Who-What-When-Where for a few more days — get your events and activities in there! AfterBurn: Restoration is going to be packed with nonstop fun, art, and learning, so be sure your offerings get listed. Use the Google form to submit your events.

Hug counters

Here are just a few of the items submitted so far:

  • Introduction to taiji and qigong
  • Who can collect the most Hugs for the Needy? Get your hug counter at The Hermitage — it might be you!
  • Take the giant puzzle challenge at “Esoteric, a year’s growth” in the Indaba
  • Get your morning coffee and snacks from Camp Java
  • At the Tainted Tater: Saturday evening dance with DJ Goodwood’s beats while noshing on hot delicious fresh cut French Fries
  • Bring your thoughts & positivity to “Inspire,” an interactive art piece in the center of our city

Got an idea to help your local community? Get a grant to do it!

Community Action Grants are intended to fund grassroots projects that help our local, Florida communities. Submit your idea now for a chance to present it at the Community Grant Salon at AfterBurn: Restoration. You can read more in the blog on the Burnt Oranges website. Here’s the link to apply — use this Google Form.


Community BBQ: Bring your plate, fork, cup, and appetite

You all know the importance of bringing your own cup to events at AfterBurn. But for this one, you’ll want a plate and a fork, too! The Board of Burnt Oranges is hosting a community-wide BBQ dinner at AfterBurn: Restoration at 8 pm on Friday, in the Indaba. There will be pork, chicken, beans, mac & cheese, slaw, and buns. Bob has noted a distinct lack of PIE on the menu, so if you want to bring some, or anything else to share, do it!

Email bob@burntoranges.org for his favorite pie recipes.

Last call for RVs and other vehicular sleeping accomodations

Friday, November 3 is the deadline to submit your “Camping Vehicle Application.” If you haven’t registered it by then, you’ll have to sleep in a tent, like Bob does.


Got an extra ticket? Need a ticket?

There’s a Facebook group, “Florida Burns Invitation Exchange,” where you can post ticket requests and available tickets. Use this link to request access to the closed group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1443944539178932/
