Re: Plug&Play Camp PlayaSkool - Camp Probably intentionally left Moop to keep deposit and legally steal money from peopl

Mario, don't feel hurt by the mean comments. Rise above it and become the best burner. Not everyone blames you. We all had a virgin year and made plenty of mistakes. Ano is right. Placement won't get your money back. They are in charge of doling out spots to camps. If a camp gets too unmanageable, t...

Re: Plug&Play Camp PlayaSkool - Camp Probably intentionally left Moop to keep deposit and legally steal money from peopl

I won't criticize you for your choice of camp. I could barely get my luggage to the far side of Cambodia because there was no in-country flights. If I were to go to Africa Burn I would do it a lot differently than the one in Nevada. In other words I'm not blaming you as long as you don't continue to...

email placement@burningman.org Put the name of your camp in the subject line. Also put esplanade and the cross street if you know it. (Like 3:00 or 5:30 or whatever street was closest.) That way it will get to the person in charge of placing it last year. Placement deals directly with camps and thei...

Mario, I'm sorry to hear this. It's a shame that it's coming up now. Last week, camps were notified of their 'standing' in the eyes of the placement team. When was your camp informed of the non-refund? I hope several of the members passed this info on to the Borg. We had some discussions here about ...

Canoe, The woman was a self proclaimed rebel. Her reasoning for being allowed to ride it was the recent popularity of kids turtle cars. They have 4 wheels and so does she. Therefore she gets to ride.

Canoe. It really is to everyones advantage at the event to play by the rules. Its not complicated. If you are genuinely disabled, get your vehicle permit. If not, make it art and apply for the license. Able bodied participants can create a pleasing 4 wheeler.

Re: Virgin Burner's coming from Sydney, Australia

If you can afford it, buy the expensive tickets when they are offered. Otherwise you take your chances. If there is a local burner community your best bet is to join them. Help with projects. In return your new friends may help you get tickets.
