We are a DIY event, and are able to produce the gathering because of your help taking care of crucial roles. Like making and serving meals, as well as helping check in at the gate, set up and breakdown.

We are a DIY event and your participation is what makes it all work. In the past we asked everybody to volunteer on one of the crews, but we're now big enough that we don't really need all 500 of you in the kitchen, let's be honest. So this year we've shifted our team around a little bit so we can me more able to facilitate your ideas. So, what are you bringing and how can we help you?
