Re: Cost Preparation

Don't worry about being a spectator. Come and see what you can see, learn what you can learn and connect with what interests you. Then as you process your experience afterward, then you can see in what ways you can contribute in the future, whether on a local level or at Burning Man. I learned quick...

Re: It's (not) a conspiracy! Tickets are harder to find this year! Be vigilant!

Yes, it was harder this year. It doesn't always work out like it should! But tickets still have a way of making their rounds if you surround yourself with different FB groups and camps. I'm not able to make it this year and passed on 3 different ticket offers... so I'm always confident that a ticket...

Re: Party/Bar Requirements for Legal Drinking Age

I look over 21 and was asked at some places... others not so much. A friend of mine brought their expired license and fared well. My thought is this... if you're over 21 when it expired, you can't go back in time and become any younger... so it shouldn't matter. I keep up with my stuff but would pre...

Re: What happens if your camp is placed but doesn't have enough tickets?

Thank you! That's what I was thinking but wasn't sure. Our ticket numbers are slowly increasing, so I'm confident we'll be in the clear.

Looking forward to returning to the playa!

Re: What happens if your camp is placed but doesn't have enough tickets?

It would be the 2nd one. Sorry for the confusing question... I'm asking for someone else. Yes, adding people to the camp should be rather easy. I didn't think someone from the BORG would come, count heads and issue a citation because we're short a few people based on our application - but wanted to ...

What happens if your camp is placed but doesn't have enough tickets?

Hello good people, I'm part of a small group who is planning to be placed this year as an interactive camp. Right now we have about half the tickets needed based on our application (total, 15 campers) and the question came up, "What happens if we don't get all our tickets?" Are we dinged for next ye...

Re: What is the ticket situation?

I thought the org would release something a bit more than "there is more demand than tickets" response. We could have conducted a stress test on the new system to work out some of the kinks before the official date. I doubt a ticket sale "redo" would be realistic or feasible, but there is a sense th...

Re: Burning Man 2017 Ticket Information

You'll have to wait about 2-3 weeks before the event starts to see demands increase for legitimate tickets. It may sell before then but I will be shocked if the week before its not gone. But like anything, its still a gamble. An expensive, risky, high stakes gamble.

Have fun!!! :mrgreen:

Re: Let's make the burn a truly multi-ethnic event.

So I think all my points have been stated already... Part of the challenge is perception, but that deals the individual. A good question is what are they exposed to in their community? That will tell you were they will "hang out". I've had the same response organizing TEDx events for the past 7 year...
