Re: 4:30 Neighborhood Camps

RhythmWave is very happy to be back on the block along Arno@5:00ish. Conceivably in the same (most excellent) spot at last year.

Please come dance with us!

Re: Who got tickets in the Directed Group Sale?

One of ours started in her Burner Profile and waited for a refresh to show the link. Never got it, so finally went to the email and got to the waiting room.

Sadly, however, at 12:48pm received the message that all tickets were sold.

Bitter sweet. :?

Re: Who got tickets in the Directed Group Sale?

Well, that wasn't so bad. About 10 minutes, overall. Two key points: (1) use the email link and bypass the Burner Profile, and (2) don't panic. :mrgreen:

A woman I knew made a pee funnel by snipping off the top of a birthday party hat. Utilitarian, yes, but handy.

She also made a sports bra out of a pair of my tighty-whities.

Nothing for RhythmWave yet.

Incidentally... anyone know (or care to speculate) if camps that DON'T get placed will also receive a "customized, individual" notice of some sort?

You think, "Hey, if we get 100 people to camp with us at $100 a pop, well damn. We could pocket $10K!" Of course, I'm not taking this personally, but it's worth noting that none of us is pocketing anything, let alone ten grand. And while I understand your point, sadly, those of us in the "core" don...

We do ask for each of our members to contribute $100 and 3 handles of booze as camp dues, though. We expect that to cover gas for our primary gear and people-hauling bus and trailer, gas for the generator, more booze, and will buy us a new 7000 watt generator this year.

Re: Metrics for placement

A 50x50 shade structure with a bamboo dance floor sounds awesome, but 130 people to build and operate that? While you may very well be right about why we were rejected, just for the sake of clarification our camp has about 85 people and we schedule two to three offerings (of dance, yoga, meditation...

Re: rejections

They are making the 12:01am landgrab even worse (while simultaneously asking us to spread out our arrival times). And since we'll be spending Monday and Tuesday setting up the basic needs of our camp, we'll have a lot less time to install the decorative features we had planned. Net result: LESS ART...
