Re: Buy to sell

So I got a ticket and not a vehicle pass. I am considering buying a $1200 ticket along with a vehicle pass and then simply reselling the $1200 ticket for face value. Any thoughts on this? I really don't want to do all my prep only to not be able to get a vehicle pass. You may find it hard to resell...

Re: Barbie Death Village Reno Hotel Deal 2017

Thanks BDV for setting this up. Question - I have a couple of rather large vehicles to park (40 foot and 36 foot) overnight. We've been staying at Boomtown because they have such a large parking lot that can fit oversized vehicles. Do folks know if Sands have a lot that would fit large vehicles? DSC...

Re: Looking to get adopted :)

You know that there is nothing wrong with a camp that comes in after gates opens and finds a spot to set up. Our camp did this the first couple of years we went. We would tell folks the general area / street we were going to look for space and to come find us when they arrived. Heck, with that damn ...

Assuming the data that would tend to show that scalping is quite limited then you are probably correct.

Re: Placement Questionnaire Tips for 2016

Nicely written and informative. I'm particularly glad to see: [*] Be realistic about your needs - account for infrastructure, camp members tents, and parking all the vehicles that will come with your campmates WITHIN your camp .  Don't expect to be able to spread out or park elsewhere. I know this ...

Re: Requiring names on tickets and IDs ... have we reached a pain level yet?

An "effective" name on ticket system would also potentially decimate camps - since many campmates who are unable to get tickets in the initial sale (for a variety of reasons) would simply be out of luck without an aftermarket. A longtime (90s) burner friend at work suggested that STEP might be more...

Re: Requiring names on tickets and IDs ... have we reached a pain level yet?

Actually the data does not agree there is significant scalping: 2015 BRC Census . The BORG will also have proprietary data mining on the ticket database, credit cards and gate ticket scans. The image below shows that olly 2.8% of tickets were sold above face value. It shows only .6 were from third ...

Requiring names on tickets and IDs ... have we reached a pain level yet?

Ever since tickets sold out for the first time "back in the day" we've had the yearly mess of the main sale and then subsequent ticket scalpers selling a quantity of those tickets through various outlets.

Or another thought .. If you have a camp that wants to split into two camps, or take a year off or even burn your camp to the ground and start something brand new with a different mix of people?

How do we get contributing burners tickets who aren’t placed

So I’ve been following the plight of a couple of camps who, although they have been playa traditions for ages, choose for various reasons to not apply for theme camp placement. Some camps like to “fly under the radar” for some, ahem, fishy reason perhaps. Some like to do some sort of guerrilla art. ...
