Cabins, cabins, cabins!

HEY, FAM!
Thanks again for bearing with us and being patient as we continue to get the DEETS in order. One of our core volunteers was busy time traveling, so that should explain all of the glitches in the matrix you’ve been experiencing. Fortunately they are back in this dimension and we haven’t been consumed by the butterfly effect… yet.

Okie dokie artichokie, here’s what you’ll find in this newsletter.

  1. Cabins, cabins, cabins!

Cabins, cabins, cabins!

As you shake the dust off of your tent, your clothes and… well, pretty much everything else, you should know that we here at Burnt Oranges have a real luxury provided to us for Afterburn 2022: cabins! Folks who took advantage of this luxe option at PreHeat 2022 will tell you that they’re awesome. To that end:Applications are now open! You may apply for a cabin here, starting at 6pm tonight. The last day to apply for a cabin is Sunday, October 16, 2022.

Applications are first-come, first-serve, and will be processed in order of receipt. Also, an application is not a guarantee of reservation. If your request is approved, you will be assigned a cabin and will receive a PayPal invoice from  for the required deposit. Cabin deposits ($100) are due within 48 hours of invoicing. Applicants who fail to pay the deposit by their deadline may lose their reservation. Once your deposit is received, watch for an email from Ticket Tailor with your cabin ticket.

The last day to remit full payment for your cabin is Friday, October 21, 2022. Those who fail to pay for their cabin by this date may lose their reservation but will forfeit the deposit — so please plan accordingly. Applications will be reviewed beginning October 1. We will contact you directly if we have questions.


Thanks for reading… and for making art, supporting art, and being a part of our community! Feel free to send me any updates.

Get those plans in order

HEY, FAM!
Here we are in the thick of summer, staying cool on these sweltering days. Penciling in a visit to a spring or planning to take a dip in the pool to cool off? Or maybe you’re preparing for That Thing in the Desert that’s coming up. Either way, I hope you’re doing something fun in the near future.

Okie dokie artichokie, here’s what you’ll find in this newsletter.

  1. Thank You, EPC!
  2. AfterBurn 2022 Dates
  3. AfterBurn 2022 Theme

Thank You, EPC!

I have a dispatch from the Burnt Oranges Board of Directors hot off the press! 

The Board wishes to extend a huge thanks to the Event Planning Committee for their dedication during the 2 years that our burns were on hold. They did a great job keeping planning moving forward as well as hosting additional events in between. We are grateful for their planning of PreHeat 2022. While KC, Whitney, and Gabriel ‘Swami G’ are stepping down for a much overdue break, we are thrilled that they are staying on in other roles of leadership in the organization.

The Board is thrilled to have Amber ‘Stardust’ of the Event Planning Committee staying on as the new Event Planning Lead. She has already organized the tasks for AfterBurn 2022 and she is ready to kick-off planning. We are excited to continue supporting her in her continued leadership role.

The Board is also excited to welcome Tammy Amsler as our new Art Lead. Tammy has several years of leadership and team experience in addition to being a successful artist herself. While her initial focus will be on Event Art Grants, Effigy and Temple for AfterBurn 2022, she is already brainstorming how to help grow art in the organization. She is excited to join the organization and to get to know our artists, community and events.


AfterBurn 2022 Dates

AfterBurn 2022 will be held November 4 – 6, 2022 at Camp La Llanada, 2819 Tiger Lake Rd, Lake Wales, FL 33898. Planning has been kicked-off! See you on the playa!


AfterBurn 2022 Theme

The AfterBurn 2022 theme is… drumroll… extra suspense… Martian Disco! We can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Get those plans in order

HEY, FAM!
I hope you had a great time at PreHeat 2022! I sure did, spending my time gambling at that quirky casino, enjoying those delicious post-burn grilled cheese sammiches, swimming in the super refreshing swimming pool, and sleeping soundly in my cabin. Those were the icing on the cake, huh? Of course, my favorite events were the effigy and temple burns, as well as the Friday night parade.

Okie dokie artichokie, here’s what you’ll find in this newsletter.

  1. Post PreHeat 2022 survey
  2. AfterBurn 2022 Announcement

Post PreHeat 2022 Survey

While I had a blast at PreHeat and wish I was back at Camp La Llanada already, I still want to know what you thought of the event! That’s why we created this handy dandy Post PreHeat 2022 Survey. Feel free to let us know what we got right, what we can do better next time, and anything else we need to know. We’re a community, after all, so we need to hear from you!


AfterBurn 2022

Yes fam, there’s good news to be had: The Board has approved having AfterBurn 2022 and they are finalizing dates with the property. Rejoice! I’ll have more on that in the coming months.

Okie dokie artichokie, here’s what you’ll find in this newsletter.

  4. Cabins are Sold Out
  5. Volunteer Signup
  6. Theme Camp Registration
  7. COVID-19 Policy
  8. Art Grant Second Deadline Approaching
  9. Certified Lifeguards Still Needed

The Guides are HereAre you planning to play with fire at PreHeat 2022? The bust out your readers and take the time to thoroughly read the Burn Guide. Yes, there will be a quiz. 

The 2022 PreHeat Survival Guide is also available, and is jam-packed with helpful deets. 


Ticket DeadlinesTier Two tickets for PreHeat 2022 are still available. Get ’em while you still can at Ticket Tailor : https://www.tickettailor.com/events/burntorangesinc/609977#

The member reserved ticket deadline has passed, however, and all ticket sales (excluding vehicle and RV passes and ice pogs) close on Friday, 4/15 at 12PM. Word on the street is that this is for everybody, no exceptions: no ticket, no entry!

You can also find all the event details via our Facebook event: https://fb.me/e/2XvcZ58yq — and don’t forget the website: https://floridaafterburn.com/ 


Ticket Assistance Update

Ticket assistance is available if you are unable to afford a ticket. We will do our best to accommodate your request. Applications will be accepted until Monday, 4/11 and the final day to obtain tickets is Friday, 4/15 at 12PM. Please fill out the form under tickets on the homepage:  https://floridaafterburn.com/ 


Cabins are Sold Out

Cabins are all sold out, fam. We’re so happy this new program has generated so much interest! If you reserved one, remit payment by Friday, 4/15. Also, be sure to sign-up all participants staying in your cabin pre-event or at Greeters. No participants will be signed in to stay in a cabin if they are not on the list.


Volunteer Signup

You can still volunteer to sign up for a shift at PreHeat 2022. As you know, no burn can happen without volunteers, and we’re all about that. I myself am a volunteer, so be like Bob and sign up here: https://floridaafterburn.com/volunteering/

Leads are working hard and will be emailing everyone to confirm their shifts. You may also reach out anytime to the teams. Email addresses are on the website, too


Theme Camp RegistrationTheme Camp registration closes on Friday, 4/8. The website is being updated with this year’s placement map. Stand By.
Get your camp activities to me for the What, When, Where guide by Friday, 4/8. Email with the names of your camp builders for Thursday Worker Access Pass/Early Entry approval.


COVID-19 Policy

In order to burn safely, you will need either proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within the last 48 hours to attend PreHeat 2022. Since there are indoor spaces at this event, we thought it to be the most responsible thing we can do. So in the spirit of radical self-reliance, make sure you have one or the other by the time you get to the gate. Read the full policy and any updates on the homepage: https://floridaafterburn.com/


Art Grant Second Deadline Approaching

The deadline to apply for an art grant is 4/8. Have a last minute project in mind? Funds are still available.
https://floridaafterburn.com/art/


Certified Lifeguards Still Needed

Certified lifeguards are needed to have the pool open at Camp La Llanada per our contract with the property, and trust us — you want it open. Two lifeguards are required at all times to open the pool. Unfortunately, the prior vendor has opted not to re-sign with our event due to the nature of it (mainly alcohol is available, and their lifeguards had to stay overnight due to drive distance/time to the property each day. The company felt there were too many liabilities). That’s where radical self-reliance comes in again fam, and we’re sensing a theme. Are you ready to bring your life-saving skills to the table?

The American Red Cross lifeguard certification (with First Aid/CPR/AED) is all that is required to meet the property’s certification requirements. Financial assistance may be available if you wish to be certified. If you are in the Tampa Bay Area, check out: https://parks.tampagov.net/web/wbwsc/webtrac.wsc/search.html?SessionID=si&module=AR&keyword=Lifeguard

If you are currently certified or wish to certify to volunteer, please email both Event Planning at as well as Volunteers at .

Remembering Peter Goetz

We are saddened by the passing of another phambly member, Peter Goetz. He was a longtime, cherished member of our phambly along with his wonderful wife, Sandra — and he was a fighter. In his own words: “And I’m not losing the fight. It will be a tie cause I’ll take the fucker with me.”  You never lost the fight, Peter and you indeed took the fucker with you. May you rest in power, and we hope you are enjoying all the kratom and catching all of the pokemon in the beyond.

Our love and comfort goes out to all who are feeling the loss of Peter. If you desire and are able to provide assistance to Sandra, a GoFundMe as been set up for her: https://gofund.me/5142bb0e

Remembering Kat-Hefter-Kirkpatrick (Star Kitteh)

We are sad to report the passing of Kat Hefter-Kirkpatrick (Star Kitteh). Kat joined the Florida burn community in 2015, sharing her vivacious and indomitable spirit with all who interacted with her. Although she may not be very well known in the community at large, she was well loved by those with whom she made camp and shared good times. She will be sorely missed by so many.
