The Blurb of Bob, Volume 4, Number 5

June 14, 2021

We’re meditating on what it means to be prepared.


It’s that time of year again: hurricane season. Fortunately for us burners, preparing for storms every year is a breeze, as we have everything we need in our camping bins. Don’t forget to make sure your batteries are still good, though, and stock up on any sundries you’d like on-hand.

We’re feeling especially saucy now that we’re fully vaccinated! Thanks to that, we’re readier than ever for AfterBurn, as it’s safe for us to gather once again. Yeah, we’re feeling pretty emotional about that.

Okay, let’s get down to business. I have some important updates for the Burnt Oranges community.

In this issue:

  1. New Burnt Oranges membership plans
  2. Theme camp registration for AfterBurn 2021
  3. Camp La Llanada property use
  4. Art Committee Survey
  5. Remembering Fay Ocampo

Zoom Registration for April Gathering

As you may have learned, Burnt Oranges is offering a new membership system with burner benefits. These memberships will help Burnt Oranges do what it does best: help our community make great art! Click on the link below to learn about what each tier offers.

Theme camp registration for AfterBurn 2021 is open

As we get closer and closer to AfterBurn 2021, it’s time to prepare for gathering once again with our burner phambly. I for one am completely stoked to see people and share art, gifts, treats, and dranks. To that end, it’s time to submit your application for theme camps. Click the link below to get started!

Camp La Llanada Property Use

If you were lucky enough to attend AfterBurn in 2019, you probably noticed that Camp La Llanada has some pretty nice facilities. This year, we want to open up more of those spaces to you. Interested in utilizing an outdoor kitchen? Or anything else? Let us know, fam.

Art Committee Survey

The new Art Committee would like feedback from past art grant recipients. Kindly fill out the form here if that’s you.

Remembering Fay Ocampo

Our community has lost another beautiful soul way to soon. Fay Ocampo was a fiery spirit in all aspects of life, and as a goblin and fox she was known to be a little mischievous, too! She was a well respected fire performer, and took great pride in fire safety. As for many of us, burns were home to her and she looked forward to growing as a ranger and one day a fire lead.  She is missed by so many and our love goes out to all whose lives she touched.

Thanks for reading…and for making art, supporting art, and taking the survey! Do you want to share a photo of the AfterBurn schwag in your home? Email it to me, and I might use it in the next edition of the Blurb of Bob!

How ’bout that?
