Normally, we have the Conception event in July on the weekend immediately following the Second Life Birthday event. Thus Conception could be July 14th -16th, which is still close to the June 23rd SL Birthday anniversary. However, we have a number of Burn2 Burners who plan to go to BRC this year, and that date may make it difficult for them to volunteer or build for Conception - they will be busy preparing for BRC. For this year, there was a suggestion to move it to a quieter time of the year, so we don't stress out our volunteers when our biggest event of the year will be opening for building in early September. That suggested date is May 5th - 7th. Which to choose? We're asking YOU!

- January NYE, Winter Burn
- February OPEN
- March / April Burnal Equinox (March 24-26 in 2023)
