Fees, Fees, Fees...

Unfortunately organizing the event is not completely without cost - we ask every participant for a donation of ILS 250, which will be used to cover the costs of renting the place, running local infrastructure (generator gas, etc), and food for duration of the event. If this is a problem for you, please let us know in advance. Any remaining funds will be used by the Arig association (עמותת אריג) to promote the use of mesh technology in Israel.


The event itself will take place in Zman Midbar, but people who prefer to stay in Arad can always catch a ride to the event. Mattresses are available, but bring a sleeping-bag or blanket for yourself. This is a desert environment, and it can get *cold* at night, so make sure you have something warm to wear. People who would like a more comfortable bed can always stay in Arad and catch a ride to the event.

If you can offer accommodation in Arad please add contact info here:
