New Meetup: Transformus

From: Darrell D.

Announcing a new Meetup for The Washington Burning Man Meetup Group!

What: Transformus

When: July 18,[masked]:00 AM

Where: Click the link below to find out!

Meetup Description: If you want to come but don't have tickets, e-mail me at [address removed] and I'll see if I can find you some. Tickets are sold out from the venue, but often there are people who have extras.

Mysteria rises again...July[masked]--see for more details.


Transformus will again be held in the little piece of mountain paradise known as Deerfields. The site is a beautiful 900+ acres of private land, nestled ridgeline to ridgeline, in the Blue Ridge Mountains, 30 minutes south of Asheville, NC.

YOU! Transformus is all-inclusive, with one important exception:

This is a participants only event. A few of us good burning souls have been plotting and planning for months to get this thing off the ground. We need more of us to pull it off!

All meetings are open to everyone, so please come out! The planning group for Transformus is open to everyone who wants to help. You can get on the bus by joining our community here and please would you consider volunteering?

Transformus is a place for radical self expression, and an experiment in temporary community building. This is the place for you to come out and express yourself! There is no paid entertainment at Transformus... the entertainment is YOU (and all your freaky friends, of course)!

Transformus is a strictly non-commercial / leave-no-trace event, and is a sincere experiment in Gift Economics. No cash transactions are permitted on grounds, and even barter is discouraged. If you need it, ask! If you have it, gift it! There is no "consumerist consumption" at Transformus, and as such, you will find no concession stands, vendor tents, or garbage cans (there will be, however, ample porta-potties!).

Pack it in, pack it out. Come Bearing Gifts. Leave No Trace.

So now you say, "Why am I here...", and I say "you already know why you're here...", and (brief shining pause) you say... "TO PARTICIPATE!" YEEHHAAAW!
