Re: BMorg *could* buy tix from Scalps put into STEP

seems like if the org figures out someone is a scalper, they can just refund the CC on file for the ticket#, void the ticket
That would work as well, but I'm not sure how they would get the ticket number from the seller?

BMorg *could* buy tix from Scalps put into STEP

The BMorg *could* buy tickets from scalpers in order to take back ownership, then "work with people" to get tickets in hands of attendees determined to have a valid interest in the event. (via STEP) Costly... yes . Solution: *Investigate methods of budget reduction from the event to make up lost sca...

@ wkorthof Where might Solar Snow Koan be located for 2009? I just got a brushless 36 volt motor hub on a quadracycle surrey bike, it helps power it a bit with some pedaling to assist. I am going to try to have extra battery packs for charging. Are you guys up for charging? Is there a good time to s...

I have brought 400 or so homebaked cookies the last couple of years and handed them out. Some people won't take them and give you a look of "yeah right, what's really in there?" I tell them it's just baked cookie dough and love, but they still say no. (*sniffle sniffle*) I found the best way to offl...

I live in Nevada City. Is this event going to be nearby? I am trying to decide between going to Belden or Stilldream. So many solstice options! How does one decide?

Is the location going to be announced? If so, when?

I tend to side with mk-ultra on this one. The temple was lit up like a club, and was one of the better if not the most appealing structure in 2008, so of course it's going to attract more people who go there looking to "party". You can't really blame them for that, since there is no reason to not be...

I agree with this idea. Isn't it time we quit looking to our youth as inspiration for everything? I mean really! What do they know? They think they are wild, original, cutting edge with their ideas and actions... It's all been done before.
