Doug, from Colorado.
     He joined us at the last moment a few years ago,
     and quickly showed he knew how to screw around
     with bikes. 
     Then, a couple years ago, he spent some quality time
     in Vietnam, helping "screw broken children back together"
     -- which just might make him our resident Mensch.

     Jim, from Southern California -- now Portland, Oregon.

     Not only is he a bicycle pro, but he is a wheelwright --

     an expert at lacing spokes!

     And he is a long time Burner.

        Jason & Laurel, from... uh... The Seven Seas -- as in...
    they recently spent five years exploring the World on
    their sailboat.
         But they are first time Burners, so there may still be
    a little something new for them to discover.  For one
    thing... less water.  Are you ready for dust-baths?

    Tony & JoAnn, from Chico, California.
    More people from Kinetic Sculpture Racing!
    They showed up as spectators at the Grand Championship
    KSR many years ago, and wound up -- before the first day
    was over -- volunteering themselves as crew members on
    Elliot's machine.  (Mostly pushing it!)  In further races, Tony
    showed himself to be a crack fabricator and welder when
    Elliot's racing kontraption broke down again.

    And wonderful friends ever since.
    Have burned several times before.  And get this:   They are

    the inventors and fabricators of our main shop shade trusses

    -- 1,250 square feet of shade -- clear span!

       Mike & Dana hail from Truckee, California. 
    As preschool teachers they like to get down and dirty

    in sandboxes and mud-pies, so they are excited to

    experience their first Burn! 
        (They have NO IDEA what "down and dirty" means.
        Dana is also a Master Baker, and Mike likes to play
    with bicycles and old VW's.
        And they are friends of Ed & Kelly.

          Glenn & Kai’om, from Chico, California.    
     Long time Burners and friends, and finally joining
     our camp in 2018.  Glenn is a full-time musician,
     but I hope… our Baldwin Grand Piano – which he
     tuned for us every day last year – is not the only
     reason they are joining us!  ;-)

    These two DOUBLED our camp's Smile Factor when

      A full time technician on high-end bicycles for the last ten

         Jerri ("Jelly"), from Davis, California.
    Kinetic Sculpture Racing has not been the same since Jerri

    discovered the sport and showed us what enthusiasm

    and determination really looks like!   

       In camp, she specializes in giving massages, and it seems

    she simply does not know how to stop doing that, so come

    on by and request a relaxing work-over!
