I am senior staff and I am a member of the city planning commitee. You can be sure that sound is going to be one of my priorities.

I was responding on the placement issue. As I explained, placement is not part of rangers. We can help mediating, and be more aware of specific camps needs for the following year, but, we are not rangers.

All I can really say is that a lot of work has been done this

I like this idea. Ask for it in your theme camp questionnaire next year. Frog [quote="geekster"]I think the plazas and the avenues are a good way to get the regionals more involved in the event itself. The regionals could provide art for the plazas and be placed around them. Burning Silicon, my loca...

What do you think about the avenues this year ?

The title says it all. What do you think of the 4:30 and
7:30 avenues ? Did you notice the new keyholes ? The
4:30 and 7:30 plaza ?

Re: Esplande is to be creative

The placement of theme camps is done by their requests (not always fullfilled), by the level of interaction (at least what they say they will do - reality might be different) and what is possible. There is, of course, a main direction. For instance, there has been focus on the 4:30 and 7:30 avenues....

The best thing to do in this kind of cases is to contact IMMEDIATELY the person who has granted your early arrival. Frog [quote="geekster"][quote="capjbadger"]Oh hell...

This is not that simple, and this is not even really the problem. Burning Man is issued an event permit that starts on 8/28th (Monday). Even if the date of the begining of the event was set earlier, there would still be people who would like to come earlier to setpup. There is more than "just" the B...

Geekster is almost completely correct. Except that Theme Camps that have been allowed on the playa before Monday 28th, are, in fact, supposed to be building their camps. This is why they are there earlier. The restriction you are mentionning are for the staff and volunteers (non theme camps), that a...

You are correct Chris: more theme camps means more placement
issues. But, while we approved 546 camps (versus 468 last year),
we received over 600 applications. In short, it is even "worse"
than you think :-)

I am from "BMORG" :-)

Yes, the deadline for theme camp early arrival was the 17th.
You need to be registered/mapped to apply for early arrival.
Without early arrival approval, the earliest you may enter Black
Rock City is Monday 28th 0:01 AM.

Registered camp means that you are placed. If your camp is not
placed, then you are not registered. If you are not registered, then
you may not arrive before Monday 28th 0:01 AM.

And there is no smoozing, bribing, etc... in the placement team.

No grant budget

Hi, The Black Rock City Placement does not have any budget for any grant: no Theme Camp has received any grant for many years now. The last grant given to Theme Camp was in 1998. Remember that grant money comes from ticket sales. Giving grants to Theme Camp would mean that the ticket price would hav...

The communities are, indeed, space where some of the villages will be
