Uh oh! It turns out Info-bots aren’t actually robots, but humans, and we made a big mistake in our last communique, on an important detail.
The second Main Sale for tickets to Lakes of Fire 2014 starts at 8:00 A.M. Eastern Time Zone on Saturday the 22nd.
Saturday’s ticketing window DOES NOT start at 12:00 noon . . . . as was mistakenly stated earlier. Your friends at Team Info-bot are sorry for any misunderstanding. Please accept our apologies, and plan on getting up earlier for the second batch of ticket sales. http://www.lakesoffire.org/ticketinfo/ More information and FAQ’s here:http://tinyurl.com/kraken14tixfaq
Speaking of mistakes, if you signed up to volunteer before February 18th, we are so sorry, but your information was lost. Please go ahead, bear with us, and fill out the form again. http://www.lakesoffire.org/volunteerform
If you’re bringing an art project or theme camp, fire spinning or fire art, a mutant vehicle, or other contribution to Lakes of Fire culture, please register your participation! http://bit.ly/LOF2014-registrationform We love to facilitate projects and artists we know are coming!

Lakes of Fire's site, Lucky Lake Campground, is privately owned and operated by our friends and trusted partners. Comply with any reasonable request that law enforcement, your organizers, your hosts, or their employees make of you. Failure to do so is grounds for removal from Lakes of Fire, and that's way less of a good time.
Abide by all relevant local, state and federal laws. If you see law enforcement officers, be friendly. Lakes of Fire cooperates with all local, county, state and federal officials.
Sorry puppies! No pets are allowed.
VOLUNTEERS & EMERGENCY SERVICES
Lakes of Fire is a 100% volunteer-run event, which means there are lots of motivated individuals, aka moties, to wrangle! There are also a lot of volunteers busy volunteer-ipating that need pre-event coordination and on-site support (read: food and swag). If you’re interested in herding cats, wrangling new volunteers on-site, or helping appreciate our volunteers during the event, please consider spending some time with the rockin’ Volunteer Coordination Team!
Want to volunteer? Great and thanks! Just follow this link: http://www.lakesoffire.org/volunteerform/
We apologize again to those who signed up before February 18th. Please go ahead and fill out the form again!
Thank you tickets for qualified volunteers from 2013 are now closed.
EMERGENCY SERVICES TEAM
The Emergency Services Team is looking for first responders with medical, fire and ems certifications to volunteer at LoF’14. Volunteering for the Emergency Services team is a great way to give back to the community. If you have certifications and are willing to volunteer some time please fill out the form at this link. The fire team also has openings for non-certified individuals that just like to play with fire (you'll have to take an onsite training the Friday of LOF), click the below link too. More details will follow in the coming weeks.
MENTAL HEALTH BRANCH
The Emergency Services Department (ESD) of Lakes of Fire is seeking professionals to assist with this year's addition of crisis services. Not all injuries and accidents result in physical wounds at Lakes of Fire, and this branch is specifically for those with experience working in the mental health profession (LCPCs/LCSWs, LCPs/LSWs, MHPs, rape crisis counselors/victim advocates, domestic violence counselors, SANE nurses, mental health nurses, etc.). We will be on-call to help heal those who are in non-physical pain. For more information on getting involved, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

CAMPING: You know you love it!
Lakes of Fire has primitive camping and porto-potties, and that's it. Rely on yourself for your survival.
Lucky Lake Campground also includes a freshwater, no-wake, no-gas-motor lake with over a mile of shoreline and catch and release fishing, but no lifeguards. Be well aware that you swim at your own risk.
Lucky Lake's 180-acre site is also equipped with several trails and dirt roads. Bikes are welcome, but be aware: mountain bikes will get you around more easily.
If you're not used to camping, you can find information on what you need for camping here on this helpful Camping Checklist http://www.lovetheoutdoors.com/camping/checklists.htm. Failure to bring these necessities will result in way less of a good time.
LEAVE AT HOME:
* Fireworks & sparklers – only the Effigy Council is allowed to bring Fireworks to Lakes of Fire
* Guns or weapons of any kind
* Pets – aside from ADA-qualified assistance dogs
* Glass – a serious impediment to our Leave No Trace Principle. Cans are preferred.
* Illegal substances of any kind.
SAFETY: Watch it!
Lakes of Fire is a 75-hour outdoor event. You're expected to rely on yourself for all your basic needs.
Please prepare for rain, wind and other extreme weather. Failure to do so may result in way less of a good time.
Beware of toxicodendrons-radicans (poison ivy). Leaves of three? Let it be!
West Michigan is home to a variety of wild animals. Take measures to ensure food and trash are secured and stored where raiders cannot find a meal, make a mess, or create a health hazard.
If you're severely allergic to bee stings, or bug bites, please take the appropriate precautions. A once-over check for ticks before you leave is a good idea, too.
Please be aware that there are no lifeguards on duty on the beaches of Lucky Lake. Swim at your own risk, and always with a buddy.
We encourage self-reliance in all situations, but some medical precautions are in place, including a volunteer medical team and an on-call ambulance if needed.

Art Honorariums fund transportation costs, event fuel costs and some minor repairs IF needed. please note; ArtHub Art Honorariums are NOT for funding the creation of new art work or for finishing previous projects!
