Reclaimation’s 10th year was one for the history books. Perfect weather the entire week of the burn for the first time ever. A total of 90 tickets were sold and 10 “Up the Creek” tickets were given out free of charge. There were 96 people in attendance for the event.
The theme for 2018 was “10”, which made sense since it was our 10th year. An interactive, 16’x16’ effigy was built the week before the burn by a team of dedicated volunteers. ICS was implemented this year to strengthen communication and security during the effigy and temple burns. We will continue to use ICS in the future.
Ten theme camps made Singe City their home for the week.
Consent issues were prevalent throughout the burn and mediated by Rangers. Looking back at numbers, we realized that with a 52% virgin rate, we need to recruit more Rangers for 2019 and a Consent Team will be working on a Code of Conduct and educational Consent materials to be handed out at the Gate.
Due to irrevocable differences with the landowner, the BOD will initiate a land search for a new venue asap.
Only minor Medic issues reported.
All Departments ran well with no problems.
We are looking forward to finding new land and new opportunities to grow our Kentucky Regional.
