Re: Stag Camp

Stag Camp is a wonderful bunch of people. The makeup of the camp is constantly changing as we allow newbies both to the burn or just to our camp every year. There is a core group of us that keep the whole thing going. My favorite part is that every year i get to meet new people, have a core group of...

Re: Only one ticket allowed from step?

I will be surprised if there are many tickets in the STEP program anyway maybe really late in the game, like july or august some will turn up... and now that the 10,000 are off the table for non-in-burners... everyone else is SOL. pretty fucked up if you ask me.

Re: What I think is going to happen with STEP !!!

My prediction is that they will not move camps to the front of the line. How do you decide who is more "worthy" (for lack of a better word)? How would this be done fairly? without bias? and without pissing off the community even more? Certain camps would be left out in the cold, and I do n...

Re: Official "Not Awarded Tix" Thread

Here's what this means to me. 2012= the year of the regional. at this point I am going to at least two. also my camp is having a west coast reunion campout extravaganza. Now instead of spending all that cash on the big burn, i can go to more burns, and still see my friends.

Re: well it looks like it failed.

i disagree a 100% just do random ticket/id checks and the line will be fine they already do random searches attach an id check and it would take about 15 secs longer. and the cost can easily be absorbed by the org. they are already making money. take it out of their pay checks! a name on a ticket is...

Re: well it looks like it failed.

It's as simple as this keep the previous first come first served system, have one price, and have a name on a ticket. sure it would cost the borg more but so fucking what. and then do random ticket name matches. no name match no entry. eliminates scalping and eliminates the huge overdemand. simple. ...

Re: A Lesson In Communication of Essential Information

If they wanted to change the ticketing process AND ask for what we think about it, they should annoce that a year in advance, and let us all hash it out together. by year in advance i mean if they want to change it they should say so when tickets go on sale this year. and have the changes happen nex...
