Ignite! 2020 Information
Hello Combustizans! The IPA can’t wait to see you at home again in 2020, and we know you are looking forward to it also. With that in mind, we wanted to share some preliminary information so you can make your plans!
Ignite! 2020 will once again be held at the beautiful Spirithaven in Stuart, Virginia on Memorial Day weekend (May 22nd through the 25th).
Ticket prices, volumes, and sale dates are finalized! 
Prices will be the same as 2019’s:
*Adults (age 13 and up) = $95.00
*Kids (age 5 to 12) = $47.50
*Youngins (under 5) = Free

Sale dates and volumes:
We’re upping the headcount a bit by 50 tickets to try and take advantage of the new parking and space gained in Pyrotopia. After this year we’ll be able to see how much more we can expand and what needs to be done to facilitate that. As is tradition with Transformus family burns, we prioritize slow and careful growth where demand is shown and volunteers can support.
*Round 1 – January 26th @ 4pm – 325 adult tickets
*Round 2 – February 26th @ 8pm – 325 adult tickets
*Kids and youngin tickets are unlimited provided guardians are attending. 

Link to ticket sales page will be provided in a future newsletter and on our website.

Ice sales are coming to Ignite! 2019 was a really hot burn in more ways than usual so, this year we plan to offer ice sales just like Transformus has for a few years. Details are still being worked out and vendors being located, but if all goes well then you’ll be hearing more info on this topic soon as well. 

Art / Effigy Grants and Playform applications are opening.
We are trying to get a jump on many of our application-based processes so, look in this newsletter for information on Art Grants, Effigy Grants, and Playforms! We want your art, your ideas, and your energy to make this burn as beautiful and fun as it can be, so get those creative gears turning and put in your application ASAP! As a reminder, all Art and Effigy grant winners get a ticket code to purchase a guaranteed ticket to Ignite!, so don’t delay!

New this year, all approved playforms submitted before ticket sales will also receive a single directed ticket code, up to our cap on codes. Don’t delay in getting your application submitted today! Playforms are part of the lifeblood of Ignite! and we want to support what you are doing to teach each other and help us all grow. This is one way we can do that. We can’t wait to see what playforms you bring this year! 

Leadership needs are always on our mind. Do you want to step up and be a team lead or co-lead?Maybe you would fit well on a Planning Committee or the TFam Board? Let us know you are interested by filling out this form.

We review this form regularly when we need new leads and we don’t want to forget about those who have expressed interest. Note, this is not an application, but it is a low impact way to get your name in the pool. We always need good leaders to step up and help make our burn the best it can be!
