WHO:
Michigan Burners past, present and future and our regional burner

(or past) year's burn, make plans for next year, meet fellow
burners, gain inspiration, contribute to the community, wear your
playa fashions, feel better about the default world, share your art,
and much more. Decomp gatherings offer burners a time and place to
share together – we welcome all past, present and future burners to
come out and join in.
