Wandering Rangers
Wandering Rangers are participants at Kiez Burn who volunteer a portion of their time in service of the safety and well-being of the community. They act as non-confrontational community mediators, providers of reliable information, facilitators of public safety, and navigators of the edge of chaos. They encourage self reliance, individual accountability, and shared responsibility. They mediate situations involving citizens, the organization, or cooperating agencies. When circumstances dictate, they act to uphold the principles of our community.

Day or night, pairs of Rangers can be found engaging with the community, enjoying the art, and always ready to help sort things out.

This is a sober shift!

Ranger Station (aka Headquarters) at the Saloon tent.

I really had a lot of fun last year and, from the feedback of a lot of volunteers, they as well. So totally up for bringing it to life again this year! Fak-yah!

Wonderers is mostly about volunteer coordination, and don't need much regarding materials, but I think it'd be pretty cool if they have their own space (last year we were squatting Welfare and First Aid) where they can gather, change shifts, shelter and keep the stuff. (We can still squat)
Maybe some little tent a little bit like this (with deco and stuff?) Dream still to be filled up in case of consent.

a tent for Rangers.... at Schloss Schönburn last year I used my Sibley 500 as a tent for Ranger meetings. It easily seats 6-10 people sitting in a circle. It is more costly but more awesome, too. You can ask Canvascamp if they have 2nd Hand/used ones on stock and give them away cheaper (I bought mine at a discount from them this way).

Note: frederik.hiergens @ canvascamp is the guy to ask. Note: He borrowed a camp about 10 of these to bring to Nowhere 2008, I was part of their camp, I loved them from the start. We borrowed Nowhere one for gate, the gaties loved it.

We will have a covered space at the saloon dedicated for Rangers that can hold small meetings before we head out. The space will have cubbies to store supplies, electricity for charging walkies, rain cover, a heater, and a light permanently on.

@cristinaolano during the leads meeting, @lisa111 + Gur (not sure where to find him on talk) expressed interest in being involved here

@jck check in here in order to not double efforts.

@cristinaolano - The Saloon as a camp is interested in helping to shape the not-so-lone rangers. There is a discussion about this going on. :)

That is amazing! We could have Sheriffs as this year's rangers @jck !


Cris Wed 27 Mar 2019 5:30PM

Nice! But, where is that discussion taking place?


walto Wed 3 Apr 2019 7:35PM
