Re: Overly Aggressive LEOs This Year?

I had a pleasantly uneventful year in regards to LEO interactions, however, a camp mate of mine was freaking out on Saturday because she claimed that "all these people are getting busted" and "large camps are getting randomly searched," and all this stuff. I think it's her first ...

OFFERED: Vehicle Pass for sale $125CAD ($98US)

I have a hard copy vehicle pass for sale here in Calgary Canada. Face value.. if you want it, pm me. I'm not sure the best way to get it from me to you. Express post? And I believe since I'm in Canada you guys can't send e-transfers.. so it may have to go through paypal (unless you know of a better ...

Plug n Play section of Theme Camp

I just got from our theme camps annual retreat and thought about a crazy idea. What if a major theme camp sectioned off a small corner of their camp as a plug n play, sold tickets for a pretty crazy price (as you'd expect for a ticket that includes a yurt, food, booze, bike, water, shower, toilet, s...

Re: I don't get why you can buy in the pre-sale and then continue to buy tickets in the main sale.

Early bird tickets (even tho they're +/-1200$) should have the regular price on the ticket (so it can only be resold at the reg.price face value.) Call the additional +/-600$ a early bird fee, apart from the ticket free that the original purchaser must eat the cost of if they decide to re-sell. ^^^ ...

I'm don't care much for the theme.. I don't really care, but I don hate the fact that the man will be in a pagoda. The last 3 man burns sucked. I was really hoping they'd go back to the skeleton man. Oh well.. I guess I'll just build my own and hold a competing man burn.

why the fuck didn't the keep the line up for the people who didn't complete purchases? I keep seeing tickets popping up, but in the half second it takes me to click on it, someone else beat me to it. It's quite frustrating, and is another thing that should be fixed for next year.
