Lakes Letter – Mid May


TOPICS: WhatWhereWhen Deadline | Kids Registration | Chicago Newbie Night | Survival Guide | Be a Ninja | Gallery in the Pines

WhatWhereWhen Deadline

The WhatWhereWhen Guide is a list of scheduled events put on by your fellow burners, and is a great way to get out the word about the cool things you’re doing at your camp or around the lake.

Submit your events to our What Where When Guide form before, May 17 at 11:59pm EST., or suffer the consequences!

All times in the WWW Guide are “ish”, of course.  Check out our 2015 WhatWhenWhere Guide (PDF) for an example of what to expect this year.

Kids Registration

All participants under the age of 18 must be registered through the Registration for Minors form to help Lakes of Fire and GLEA understand who to reach out to if there is a safety concern. Children 12 and younger may come to Lakes of Fire free of charge with their parent or guardian; please do not register children until your own ticket is secured.

People under 18 years of age must be accompanied by a 21+ parent or guardian, both at entry, and at all times during the event.

Chicago Newbie Night

If this is your first time at Lakes of Fire, or you need some help deciphering our Survival Guide, or you just want to connect with other burners, come to the 4th annual Lakes of Fire Newbie Meetup in Chicago at the Catalyst Collective! It’ll be on Saturday, May 14 at 3 PM6 PM in CDT.

The LoF Greeter team will get you prepped for your first (or twenty-first) burn up at Lucky Lake, covering everything from how to Leave-No-Trace and what to pack, to greater philosophical quandaries and culture concerns. Bring questions, Get Answers. Or just come hang out!

See the Newbie Night event on Facebook for details.

Survival Guide

Some topics include Gate hours and entry guidelines, camping and campfire restrictions, consent at Lakes, how to resolve emergencies, sound protocols, and Exodus.

Before posting your question to Facebook and leaving your brainmeats vulnerable to trolls, read the Guide.

Be a Ninja

Looking to volunteer at Lakes? While many departments have already filed their schedules up, one of the most important needs we have is NINJAS! Perimeter Ninjasto be exact.

Lakes of Fire’s awesomeness inevitably draws curious thrill seekers without tickets. Un-ticketed participants (aka gatecrashers or interlopers) are a direct threat to LoF’s continued efforts to grow as a community and provide a safe environment for ticketed participants.

In an effort to keep our boundaries secure, the Department of Perimeter Ninjas have been summoned! Please sign up as a Perimeter Ninja and fulfill a vital role at Lucky Lake.

Gallery in the Pines

Check out the Gallery in the Pines FAQ for more info, and then SIGN UP! Existing art welcome, and making something new totally encouraged! Show yourself. We want to see what you do!
