Ravography is scheduled for Spring, date and location TBA. To submit photos or ideas, please contact us! ...and, if you are involved in an interesting project or organization, we'd like to know what you're up to, so feel free to introduce yourselves. :)

- Free water provided, as always (bring your own container)

- any extra hands are appreciated, so feel free to pitch in.
- donations will be collected -- thanks in advance for your kind support!

- space is limited, so most of the parking will occur along the broad gravel road. Please park tightly and close to the side to maximize space.

Someone may greet you as you arrive and show you where to park.

- as this is a woodsy location, there is limited space for pitching tents. Please come *early* to set up your tents, and expect close neighbors. :)
- please leave the main areas clear for grooving activities.

- due to the dry weather, there *may* be fire restrictions imposed. If that is the case, please protect our forests by not lighting campfires and by disposing of cigarettes in containers provided. Bring warm clothing and camping stoves instead. We'll keep you posted if fire restrictions change.

- please take out with you *all* litter you bring in, and dispose of cigarette butts in containers provided.

Azimuth is a free camp-out style party, brought to you by your family and friends at Bside. Although our motivation is from the heart, we do not have bottomless pockets; donations are welcome. If you would like to contribute/volunteer (parking, set-up, clean-up, games supervision, etc.) please contact us by phone at 254-3468 or e-mail us. We should have the sound system set up by the middle of the afternoon (4-5 p.m.) and will be providing beats from that time till sometime Sunday afternoon. Bring a loved one, lotions, potions and lots of water, wine, food, warm clothing and shelter. Most of all bring your phattest attitude.

Please respect the site, remember to take with you all that you bring. All help, cleaning and maintaining the site is appreciated.

The Azimuth site is 30 km from the closet store. If planning on picking up supplies or gasoline do so in Squamish. We will have a supply of water available, but we are uncertain how many of you will be attending. Please bring all the water you plan on consuming and a bit more. The river water is silty but perfectly safe to drink.
