So Gulfcoaster, you plan to deliver folks to their Plug & Play camps for a fee. Hummmm. Tell me how this is a good thing.

Re: Cultural Course Correcting post by Marian Goodell

Hey Doc, It's good to hear your voice. (In my head.) This is the traditional time of year that the 'wingnuts' come out with new, insightful ticket ideas. Sometimes they've been to one event and it's their first post on ePlaya. This year Marion has prompted lively discussions all across the internet.

Tiger Man is a placed camp of 4 with one fluid space. We install foam and fur on your bike seat so you can enjoy your ride. (Lots of sore butts out there.) So far everyone loves us including the placement team.

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

I love to hear people's opinions. Once they start guessing, (at anything. Not just numbers.) I lose interest fast. It's like someone telling you about last nights dream. Hypotheticals lose me even quicker. Speculation based on hard facts is sometimes interesting. Just an observation I've made about ...

And last year we saw a good live band killing it down on the Esplanade, seemed to have a real draw.

Re: Bungee ball alternative?

DriKnow, I agree on how to do the bungies and that I'll never want to thread anything through the grommets again. When you first get your tarp the grommets are spaced so far apart. I like to add more so my tarp fits tightly on the frame. Twice as many holes to thread. (Back off jokers. That one is t...

stephanie your mind wanders in funny ways. That's a not-so-fine idea. You can buy Mario a ticket in the main sale. Designated tickets are a reward for a camps stellar participation last year. You can't give DGS tickets away to strangers as rewards. Someone in the camp will need it.

bBadger, Oh, and no, it's not "stealing" when the conditions are met for you to lose a deposit. It's a deposit, that's what it's for. It seems obvious that you understood the conditions -- conditions that were met because Playa Skool's plot of land did not receive a perfect MOOP score. So your $250 ...

XPTom, You're right. I shouldn't have mentioned the option of moving them out. (Unless the next step for bad behavior would be not being placed the following year.) I just don't think they warrant placement on the esplanade.

Ano, that is a carefully written letter. Nothing more. It's not a random opinion from placement. Why would anyone want to hide it? Last year they put a moratorium on outside service providers. No new ones were allowed. That is a step in the right direction. This year we've been informed not to contr...
