Announce for February ’16


Announcements abound this month, as we gear up for Spring Town Hall, Theme Camp Registration, Volunteer Calls, and other sundry loose ends we work on throughout the year.

Stay tuned to the Flipside Flame, the Announce email list, the Burning Flipside Calendar, and the official Burning Flipside Facebook Page. Remember, if you have something you’d like to contribute to the Flame or Announce, use Flipside Flame/Announce Submission page to send it in. Announce tends to be at the beginning of the month, and Flames usually get published around the middle of the month. Get me the info at least a week before then, and I’ll do my best to get your contribution included.

Spring Town Hall: NO!

You can’t spell Town Hall without “NO.”

Spring* Town Hall is coming up on Saturday, February 6th!
Here’s the Facebook event:

Theme Camps are encouraged to participate. Keep in mind that space is a little tighter at our new Warehouse (Lloyd – 3106 Industrial Terrace, Austin), so you may need to cozy up to neighbors if you’re setting up tents.

If you would like to volunteer as an individual or as a theme camp during Town Hall, please let us know how you can help by filling out this form

Theme Camp Registration

Hello, Theme Camp Leads, Busy Bodies and affiliated Marshmallows!! The day you have been waiting for has arrived! The day you find out when Theme Camp Registration opens! That’s today. The day you find out, that is. Today is likely not the day theme camp registration opens, since you could be reading this any day. Unless you are reading this February 7th. Then today is the day for both!!

Theme Camp Registration opens February 7th, 2016

Theme Camp Registration closes April 1st, 2016

So get your theme camp registration information organized and get that lovely form filled out. Don’t be a fool by waiting to the last minute.

Friendly reminder: the earlier we have your details, the earlier we can place your camp. Hint hint. Nudge, nudge. A nod’s as good as a wink to a blind man.

I’m not entirely sure why I called anyone a Marshmallow. It just… felt right. Maybe I’m hungry.

Never say I don’t love you,
♥ Ste. Michelle ♥
(Yes, we’ll let you know when the actual link to theme camp registration is live.)
