Work Weekends! Dec 2-3 (this weekend), Dec 16-17 and Dec 30-31 FreezerBurn is powered by volunteers. Volunteers like you! One way to get involved is to come to a work weekend. We’ll help prepare the land, Spirit Haven Ranch, for our event, while also implementing improvements that give back to our hosts, the Council of Magickal Arts (CMA). Camping is encouraged, or you can just come out for a few hours.

Before you go: Take the Work Weekend 1 Survey 
– If you’ve never been to Spirit Haven Ranch before, read the “The Land” portion of the Survival Guide.
– Bring everything you need for the weekend, including a tent (if you’re staying overnight),
– Tools/Apparel: work gloves, yard and garden tools, clippers, work boots, water, snacks/meals, protective eye wear, chaps, etc.

When you arrive:
– Stop by the CMA Guardian Station and sign in as a FreezerBurn column so they know how many FreezerBurn volunteers are present.
– Locate the FreezerBurn point of contact for the weekend, Volunteer AF Diana Owens. She will help assign you to a task or work crew. If you can’t locate her for any reason, locate one of our CMA contacts, Samazon (Samantha) or Gary.
– If you’re there at 9AM on Saturday or Sunday, you must report for the morning’s work and safety briefing. Please listen and be respectful.

This Coming Work Weekend Tasks:
Clear the ravineby the troll bridge of wood and debris so water can pass
Clear parking and new theme camp areas of mesquite
Collect community wood, moop-ing in key areas
Help with other CMA other priorities of work

A special note about meals:
Unlike at burns, meals are available. For a donation of $10, the CMA Kitchen Witch (Brinna) will guarantee you: a grab-and-go breakfast, sandwiches or a similarly simple lunch and a hot dinner. **If you want to participate in this, email her at KitchenWitch.Lead@magickal-arts.org before 6PM on Friday.

FZBTX THEME CAMP REGISTRATION IS CLOSED *** but we are still placing camps, so please submit your camp info soon!

Want reserved placement within the event? Are you collectively bringing something to offer the community? Sign up as a Theme Camp! Theme camps can offer a service, gift, or interactive experience. Registration is now open through November 19. Not a Theme Camp? Open camping areas and quiet camping areas will be marked on the map released immediately prior to the event. If you are bringing amplified sound, you must register as a Theme Camp to receive placement.

Pro-tip: write your entries in a separate document that you can refer to, in case something goes wrong with the form. You should see a Thank You message at the top of the form window when you successfully submit. If you have any issues with the form, try resubmitting using a different browser or contact placement-lead[at]fzbtx[dot]com.

THEME CAMP REGISTRATION

This year we are expecting more camps than ever, and our city is expected to grow! This is good news, but will also require your patience as we adjust to the demand for land. We will make every effort to work with each camp to ensure smooth placement, just be sure to be specific as possible when filling out your requests. So get your theme camp out, find all the fire pits, and hike around the 101.5 acres of magical woodlands.

City Events Submission

City Policies and Guidance

Large Vehicle = Box Trucks, RV, Flatbed, Campers, Trailers, Limos, Jumbo Jets, Clown Cars over 15 feet
All RVs, Campers, and other large vehicles will be required to register with and be placed by City Planning:

**** Register your RV, Camper, or Large Vehicle  HERE
(https://goo.gl/forms/yqSlnqJF5jEsKFkK2) ****

  • All RV and Large Vehicle placement is subject to City Planning approval and placement onsite, and completely dependent on land conditions
  • RV’s larger than 25′ must be parked in the centrally-located RV area
  • The RV Zone Czar on duty will work with you to place your RV and Large Vehicles upon arrival
  • Please register your RV or Large Vehicles by 19 Nov. 
Car and RV parking is permitted only in designated areas
  • All vehicles have 2 hours to unload and park (cars will be marked at greeters with time of arrival and location)
  • Cars and RV’s must camp in areas designated as such

Your Vehicle May Get Stuck … the risk is yours. You may be required to pay for your own towing. Giant Mud Ruts = Leaving a Trace

Rain Rules

Any amount of rain will cause large vehicles to become stuck in theme camps and open tent camping, especially campsites on the southern edge of the property and the northeast open camping area. ALL Drivers Are Required to Adhere to the Rain Rules

  • Stay on the paved road, stay alert and do not go around road blocks, do not drive into Theme Camps or off the road!
  • Do not move your vehicle during or after a rain event
  • Do not attempt to park your vehicle by yourself, Zone Czars will help to ensure correct placement
  • If your camp is not directly accessible via a main road, coordinate with Zone Czars for assistance
  • You may be required to haul in your camp from the road, so be prepared (dolly, cart, etc)!
  • You may be required to pay for a tow truck if you become stuck

In case of rain *** There will likely be a limited amount of space for car and RV camping due to water saturation. Even if the land looks dry, it can still be rather squishy. RVs may end up having to camp in the designated parking areas (which is on higher ground). If you end up deciding to bring your RV, please ensure you coordinate with the on-site placement/parking teams. They will have the most up to date information about the land conditions and parking availability.

All Fires and/or fire activities will need to be registered with the FZB Safety department, or risk ejection from the event.

CAMPFIRES must be kept within pre-existing fire pits. Don’t move or expand fire pits.

Keep a fire extinguisher or a five-gallon bucket of water available at all times. Keep combustibles at least 15 feet away. At least one representative must keep the fire in safe operation parameters at all times; i.e. UNDER 3ft in diameter, unless you have been otherwise cleared. if the smoke or odor emission becomes offensive or objectionable, you will be required to extinguish the fire. Ashes must be removed from the land at the end of the event. Only use firewood from the county, and do not use treated wood. Do not burn anything (trees, deadfall or cut wood) found on land. (**Burners returning to the land please take note.)

BURNING OR BURNABLE ART must be registered with the Art Department and be within reach of a fire extinguisher at all times. This includes any artwork, structure, or vehicle that produces flame or heat.

CAMP STOVES are permitted. Monitor them closely, as you would any other open flame.

FIRE SPINNERS should have a person acting as a spotter as well as a fire extinguisher with them.

Sound Policy: Quiet Hours 6am – 11:59am (no amplified sound)

We know you like loud noises, but after 10pm all sound must be under 80 decibels at 50ft from the noise producing object. We will have roving sound marshals monitoring and enforcing the sound policy. This is to ensure the event and relationships are not jeopardized by sound complaints. Rangers will also help prevent any and all violations to the sound policy as necessary, under the provisions and the guidance of the FreezerBurn Board. Unless otherwise indicated on the theme camp registration list, camp leads will be responsible for ensuring that amplified sound is operated in accordance with the Board guidelines (which may change as needed to ensure potential liabilities are mitigated). Three strike rule, enforced by the Board. In case of emergency, theme camps may be asked to turn off their sound and assist with emergency broadcasting.

READ THE SURVIVAL GUIDE. ENSURE ALL YOUR CAMPERS READ IT TOO!
