We are a group of burners located in Saint Louis, Missouri and the surrounding areas. Several of the people in our group have a yearly theme camp at Burning Man called Pandora’s Lounge and Fix It Shoppe, but not all of us camp together on the playa. We attend local art events in our area, have occasional campouts together, house parties, and just hang out in general. We have a yearly Santarchy and take part in Artica. Gateway Burners, LLC is currently working with the community to put together the very first Gateway Burn which is set to take place in September 2008. We are a diverse group of people who get together on a regular basis and we welcome everyone!

We hold a weekly Meet 'n Greet on Tuesday evenings and, along with some fire spinning and beer drinking we discuss future burn projects, gatherings, art around town, and other goings on of interest. Information on our weekly gathering goes out on our discussion list. We also hold a monthly BBQ, which allows everyone of all ages to meet and is generally when we hold our Town Hall meetings.
