In perusing the wonderful Gemini and Scorpio newsletter, I found the following 3 events all happening on the same day.
What a beautiful world we live in.
PARTICIPATORY: The Return To Mau Mau Island
Gather your clans, construct your water crafts, sharpen your skills, hone your alcohol tolerance. There are no spectators; this is a participatory event. You must have a team of three or more people in matching or clearly themed outfits. Non tribe affiliates will be eaten. You must have a team flag attached firmly to a pole. Be well provisioned with water and supplies, there are no delis in the ocean. Take away with you everything that you bring. There will be very little investment in infrastructure. This means if you don’t bring a boat, arrange passage on someone’s boat, build a boat, bring floaties, tubes, barrels, bags of floating detritus, etc, you will sink. No use of motors while people are swimming. There is parking at the end of Gerritse Ave. Improvised watercraft can be carried to and assembled and launched from the beach, but must be polite and fast, then you must park your car elsewhere after unloading. Gerritsen Beach is directly across from Mau Mau Island. The flotilla will form between the beach and the island. Do not swim to the flotilla or island, there are swarming jet ski that will kill you. Seriously. Have a valid driving license if your boat has an engine. We value our most remote and secret location and don’t wish to draw attention, so leave no trace. (Gerritsen Beach, end of Gerritsen Ave, BK, 12pm-dark, FREE)
