The Blurb of Bob, Volume 3, Number 2

August 17, 2019


Your Event Committee has listened to you, and we’re happy to confirm that we’ve found a new location for Camp AfterBurn. It’s FLAT, with showers, LOTS of shade and fewer ants. More information will be coming soon.

Calling all our artists and dreamers!

1. Do you art?
2. Do you want to share your art with the community at our Burns Phambly Reunion at Camp AfterBurn?
3. Are you ready to bring your “A” game?
4. Would an art grant help you do this?

If you said yes to all of the above, your time has come.

The period for formal submissions of art grants, including burnable art, is open. It will close at midnight on Sunday, September 15th.

There will be at least $5,000 available for art grants at AfterBurn.

This year we have decided to let the Phambly decide what art they would like to see brought to the event. After the submission period closes on September 15th, the Art Grant Committee will open the grants up to the Community for voting.

All references to artists and camps will be removed; we are asking that the artists allow each submission to be judged according to the art’s own merits. Voting will be via a Facebook poll, similar to the one used for the event committee members. Note: Any grant requests received after September 15th at midnight will not be considered for the community vote.

New this year: We will have some enclosed structures with electricity available to display your art and keep it safe from the elements.

Information on how to submit your art grant and online forms for submission can be found at

Submissions for the Effigy and Temple should be sent to your Event Committee via email at

We can’t wait to see what your creativity will bring to life!

How ’bout that?
