About this Event

Dear Disorient Family -

The future remains uncertain, but the present is clear. Country Club X is not happening at its scheduled time. While it will be sad to watch May pass without connecting in person, we know the decision to postpone will keep the Disorient family safe.

But what does that mean for Country Club in the year 2020? While nobody can guarantee its viability, we are tentatively and hopefully rescheduling the gathering to 8/27/20 - 8/31/20.

We will use our best judgement regarding those dates and will keep you updated as they approach. But this is out of our hands for now. New York is just beginning to bring the state out of hibernation and nobody knows what will happen. Country Club X will happen, but only time will tell if it lands in 2020 or waits until next year.

Refunds remain available via Eventbrite. We'd like to say thanks to those of you holding onto your tickets by offering you a tshirt.

If you haven't already, we hope you'll use the last weekend of May as an opportunity to reach out to the friends and family you've built at Country Club over the years. As we've all learned recently, they're as close as a video chat away.

But we will all be together again in our private woodland oasis. We may have to wait awhile, but it won't be forever.

Please take care of yourselves and your people. If someone asks for help, give it. If you need help, ask.

Stay safe,

Disorient

You may bring your pets but please be mindful of them, as there are coyotes in the area. Most of the camping site is in the woods.

Country Club is minimally RV friendly. Limited number of RV passes available. The site does not offer RV hookups.

This is a LEAVE NO TRACE event. This means, leave the place you visit the same or better than you found it. Bring trash bags, and take your trash with you when you leave.

Disorient is a volunteer-run art collective.

Check out this article from 2019 for a Disorient background and history.

Disorient has very few rules, but two require declaration and elaboration:

1. Respect personal boundaries.

2. Take responsibility for your own experience.

The interplay of these two rules forms a social contract that makes our events safe places to explore your own boundaries while encouraging respect for each other. Talk to those around you about anything that makes you uncomfortable.
