Volume 5, Number 11
October 31, 2022

Happy Halloween! We hope you have a wonderful day and evening as the veil between this world and the outer realm thins out. Whether this is a holiday of quiet reflection on the beyond or a fun day to dress up the kiddos and take them out for trick-or-treating, we hope it’s one for the history books. This is also the last blurb before the burn, so we have some important deets and treats for ya.

AfterBurn 2022 What Where When Guide

Thank you all for your submissions to the What Where When guide, which you can access here. There are tons of fun events, and we’re even more stocked about AfterBurn 2022 now.

Martian Disco Skate Party
Jupiter’s Arcade is calling all citizens of Afterburn to help with the Laser Abduction happening in the Mall over the weekend! Martians will be launching an assault of lasers, lights, fog, and disco music to hypnotize us beautiful burners. If you have any lasers of your own, please bring them to set up on the other side of the Mall, and show those Martians on stage we are strong and have lots of pretty lights too.

Martians can more easily read our minds and track our movements when we move slow and orderly. So for Friday night (and maybe Saturday night too), Jupiter’s Arcade is asking all participants to join together for a Martian Disco Skate Dance Party! Bring your dancing feet, roller skates, roller blades, skateboards, hoverboards, scooters, bikes, and anything else with wheels to keep us all moving around in an ordered chaos. We only ask that you sign a liability waiver list in case those Space Invaders cause you damage.
