FireDrums VI

Thursday, May 1st - Sunday, May 4th, 2008



FireDrums is about bringing the global Fire Arts and Drumming Communities together to share knowledge and to propel these burgeoning Art Forms forward. The past 4 FireDrums were blessed with some of the most epic Fire Spinning and Drumming Jams of all time with participation from some of the world's most amazing Fire Dancers and Drummers. Truly inspirational!



FireDrums will always be open to everyone at any skill level even if you've never lit-up. Whether you're learning, teaching, sharing, inspiring, or being inspired, we welcome anyone interested in being part of the abundance of advancement that occurs when a convergence of this magnitude transpires. We look forward to revisiting old friendships and creating new ones with those who love the beat of the drums and the warmth and glow of the flame.



Everyone was a beginner at some point in their development and you can often learn just as much from teaching as you can from being taught. There will be organized and impromptu interactive workshops in the various disciplines of the Fire and Flow Arts and Drumming throughout the gathering.





LOCATION: We've secured the beautiful Cutters Scout Reservation exclusively for FireDrums V. Cutter Scout Reservation is a full-service camping facility located in the coastal mountains of California above Santa Cruz. This breath-taking 300 acre camp ground is located 25 miles from Santa Cruz and 67 miles from San Francisco. Cutter is about 2,200 feet in elevation and it's in some of the last old-growth redwoods on the West Coast. There is a full-size swimming pool, a small lake with canoes, hiking trails, bathrooms & showers with running water, bbq's, and so much more!





Things to bring: Your highest self, fire toys, drums, fuel, fire safety equipment, whatever you need to be happy in the woods, camping gear, tent, food, drinking water, friends & family, flashlight, sun screen, bathing suit, layers for varying temperatures, love & good vibes.



Things not to bring: alcohol, dogs, bad vibes.



As always, this is a LEAVE NO TRACE gathering!



Please car pool as there is very limited parking!



These 2 previous topics are VERY IMPORTANT POINTS!

See ya at FireDrums V!!! biggrin

Be there or be quadrilateral


Let's turn those old bridges we crossed into ashes.
We'll blaze a new trail,
and torch the rough patches.

Posted:FIREDRUMS needs you! Sign up for Fire Safety!

While everyone at FireDrums is responsible for their own safety by having a designated spotter, there are additional SAFETY VOLUNTEERS on duty helping to ensure the safety of the event as a whole.

If you would like to volunteer please check out the calendar for open safety shifts:

http://firedrums.org/page6_volunteer.html

Then send an email with the desired slot, your name, and phone number to firedrums00@gmail.com. To see the late night shifts in "week" view scroll up to the top of the calendar page (May 1st-4th).

In addition, before helping out, each volunteer must join us for one of the FIRE SAFETY MEETINGS held at the fuel dump every day at sundown (approx. 7PM).

Please Note: This is a volunteer position. You still need a ticket to attend FireDrums!
