A State Of Mind
Guidelines & Event Philosophy
The East Bay Parks District and Two Day Town have agreed to a number of guidelines pertaining to the use of this beautiful area. Everyone must abide by these, so that Two Day Town can continue to happen. Your cooperation is essential to our event being a success.
Here’s a guideline about firepits:
Commercially produced fire pits will be allowed in certain locations which we will have to map in advance to satisfy Fire Marshall requirements. Please let us know if you are bringing one and where you will most likely be camped.
|No glass containers, anywhere.
It is important to keep the lawns, beaches, and parking lots free of broken glass. Bring your beverages in cans or plastic bottles, and as much as practical bring your food in reusable or recyclable containers that go home with you.
No styrofoam containers anywhere.
Beer & wine are allowed.
No drunks, no druggies, no weapons.
No smoking or vaping
Camp Quiet Hours
No generators or amplified noise or music except for Two Day Town production & facility needs.
Everyone at Two Day Town will wear our wristband. No exceptions. This policy allows our security monitors to quickly identify & remove people not properly associated with the event.
Sorry, but absolutely no pets.
Pack out your own trash.
|Only clean, non-processed wood may be burned. Park wood may not be gathered. No accelerants may be used. No bonfires are allowed. Campfires must be attended at all times until they are completely extinguished.
No attachments to the park
Vehicles and Boats
No boats or kayaks may be brought onto the lake from Lake Del Valle’s west shore during the event.
No proselytizing, advertising, or commercializing.
Being mindful of our proximity to the Ohlone Wilderness around us, our impact on it, and it upon us, we attempt to respect our coexistence in the following ways:
LEAVE NO TRACE
When we venture out, it is always nice to find a site that has seen minimal adverse impact by people. Two Day Town strives to leave Del Valle in better condition than when we arrived, and this effort is part of why East Bay Parks continues to allow us to use the area. It takes effort to keep places in good condition, and we can all help by having a Leave No Trace philosophy.
|Plan on taking home every non-consumable thing that you bring to Two Day Town.
Be responsible for your own stuff! If you had room to bring something, then you have room to leave with it. There are almost no trash cans at Two Day Town, so be prepared to take your waste stream with you.
Do not throw anything ‘away’.
Do bring reusables instead of disposables.
|Do recycle or reuse everything you bring that is recyclable or reusable.
Just because a utensil is plastic doesn’t mean it can’t be washed and reused. It makes no sense to use these items one time and discard them, only to grab another identical one later. Plastic water bottles can be refilled many times, at a tiny fraction of the original cost. The bottlers want you to use them only once, simply because they want to sell you more. Most bottled water is simply filtered tap water, no better or worse than what comes from your home faucet.
Be aware of overpackaging.
|Are you an environmentalist?
If you like like to breath clean, fresh air, drink clean water, and eat healthy, safe food, that is free of pesticides and added hormones then you are an environmentalist.
It takes awareness from everyone to preserve our planet, and every little bit helps. Please do your part to provide our families with a sustainable environment. You will be doing yourself and your progeny a favor.
