The Blurb of Bob, Volume 3, Number 4

September 17, 2019


Announcing a fabulous new venue for The Burns Phambly Reunion at Camp AfterBurn!
Camp La Llanada, 2819 Tiger Lake Rd, Lake Wales, FL 33898
November 1-3, 2019

This past weekend, the organizing committee, department leads, and Burnt Oranges directors held a Leadership Summit at the new venue. We conducted safety training, scoped out the property, and decided where to put the art. The camp is a well-developed FLAT property with shady camping, a swimming pool, showers, and indoor gallery space. Most importantly, it has fewer ants!

  • Tickets will go on sale September 30 at $105 per participant. AfterBurn is an all-volunteer event, so as soon as you purchase your ticket, you’ll need to go to Signup Genius and sign up for shifts. We’ll provide that signup link in our Sept. 30 announcement. We recommend you buy your ticket ASAP, because if we get enough volunteers to release additional tickets, the price will go up after the first block of “Volun-Tier” tickets are sold.
  • If you are a Mandarin Supporter, thank you! You will receive a separate email with a code that allows you to purchase a $90 discounted ticket right now.
  • Did you do a ton of volunteering at last year’s AfterBurn? Reach out to your team lead or send an email to . You may be able to buy your ticket early!
  • Everyone attending must have a ticket, including children. Minion tickets are available at the following prices: Under 5, free; 5-11 years old, $45; and 12-17 years old, $90.

Vehicle Passes
To encourage carpooling, every vehicle coming to the event must have a Vehicle Pass. These are available during all ticket sales for $10 per vehicle. Please note: There is no offsite parking, so every vehicle coming to the event will need to purchase a pass.

RV Passes
We have a parking lot set aside with a limited amount of space for RVs and camping trailers. If you are planning to camp in an RV or travel trailer, you’ll need to purchase a $25 RV Pass instead of a Vehicle Pass.

Theme Camp Registration is now open!
Now that you know where we’ll be, it’s time to submit your theme camp registration. To submit the details of your awesome plans, go to the Theme Camp page.
