Announcement from the PDF Board

Dear Playa del Fuego Community,

Going forward, Playa Del Fuego, Inc. will no longer be hosting PDF at the Vietnam Veterans Legacy Veterans Motorcycle Club. The impetus behind this decision was the discovery of VVMC values and policies that are irreconcilable with the values of our community. 

Members of the PDF Board (Patty, Karnak, and Lizard) discussed our decision to leave the VVMC with members of the VVMC board of directors (Franco and Pineapple), and we are very thankful for all of the energy they and others have given our event over the years. Should the policies of the VVMC change in the future, we may consider whether to reverse our decision.  

All PDF infrastructure and burn barrels which had been stored in and around the on-site shed at the VVMC have now been moved to a storage unit in Smyrna. 

As an organization, we are fully committed to finding rental property in order to host PDF in the Spring of 2018. If you have ideas for potential rental locations, or would like to help find rental space in or around Delaware, please email ursula(at)playadelfuego.org. Please note, this effort is distinct from the effort of finding land to purchase. 

We understand how hard it may be to learn of this news, especially given how welcoming our hosts have been to our community for so many years. We are surprised and saddened to make this decision, too. But we stand by our values as an organization and as individuals, and all agree that this is the only path forward. We welcome your support and engagement with finding a new location for Playa del Fuego and in helping our community to evolve and grow together. 

Should you have any questions, please reach out at bod(at)playadelfuego.org.

Sincerely,
The Playa del Fuego Board of Directors
