Re: The LEtsGO Lounge is looking for campmates!

it -might- be.. We are the LEtsGO Lounge, (around 4:30 and E), and there was a Lego Bar camp (with vehicle) around the 7 o'clock spoke, IIRC.

I don't know if they are going this year, but it might be interesting to mash the two camps together.

Geo Dome Swap in Nor Cal?

Our theme camp has been using 17' diameter geo domes for camp infrastructure for the last few years. They can fit easily into our wagons and assemble fairly quickly. One dome has always been reserved for the public interactivity (playing with Lego), but as we get more popular, an 17 footer (which re...

"They're more important than you. Or me. Or my individual camp. " I disagree. No specific camp, specific mutant vehicle, or specific artwork is irreplaceable (maybe The Man is the sole exception). There's been many great camps that have come and gone, but every one that has disappeared has...

I'm curious as to the condition of the road. It may be an alternate route out of BRC if 447 south to hwy 80 gets jammed up again.

Many people are posting about how their theme camp only got less than 25% of the 'needed' tickets for their entire camp to go, and now the camp might not go at all (insert dramatic music) with the tone of 'you'll miss us'. I have been 7 times, and I have yet to visit a theme camp where I said to mys...

Re: An idea to help ease the issues with tickets.

I think that why they have the STEP program developed, to handle those returns (if they truly exist). The problem is that if anyone has extra tickets, the first people they're going to offer them to are friends and campmates.. not just throw them back into the communal bucket. Thus, I think the opti...

If I poop on the playa, is that supporting the theme? I can also toss around food scrap and coffee grounds if that helps. That way, in 2013 we'll be able to grow our own vegetables!

One aspect I like about the new process.....

Sending the tickets *with* the survival guide in June. Reduces postage costs! This is a good idea.



There, I'm being positive. Now I'm going back to respectfully disagreeing with other aspects of the new process, and asking questions that haven't been answered.

I didn't infer that from the info.. it would seem to be counter to the goal of having people the highest bracket they can afford, in order to leave lower priced tickets for others. If someone is willing to buy at the $320 price point, under your model, they would possibly get tickets at the $240 pri...

Re: 'leftover' tickets - please check my math

By 'media', I should have said 'public relations'. I'm referring to tickets they give to the local tribes, assorted community organizations in Reno, and perhaps/probably some political figures.
