Also.

Git.. also to follow up on the rest of your post where you asked about ideas etc. Some of the stuff I loved seeing in the other mazes that have been at Burning Man (or elsewhere)... * little hidden areas that are hard to get too, maybe have a small bar or something there to hang out at as a reward. ...

I love it!

Some of my favorite Burning Man memories over the past 10 years have been from mazes, maze camps like "mission to mars" around 5 years ago, and the year the man was in a maze (I believe it was the year "The Pysche" was the theme) So I LOVE that you guys are doing this. Why no tower though if it's a ...

Planet Earth returns in 2010!

Hey 80's dance fans! Planet Earth, the 80s Dance Camp on the 9:00 plaza last year will be returning in 2010! We look forward to seeing you guys on the playa, it's way to early to know where we'll be yet, but we're really hoping we'll be on the plaza again this year. Here is our theme lineup for 2010...

Re: Camp Perimeter Fence

Hi, I've been doing this for 10 years, and I can tell you that for a 2 person non-theme camp, a fence is a waste of time. Just circle the wagons with your vehicle and dome, and you'll be ok. If you REALLY need a fance, a good strong fence, then some crappy thing with rebar isn't going to work. I wou...

Its mostly money

I've founded or co-counded 3 theme camps in my 10 years at Burning Man. The typical life span of a middle sized theme camp seems to be around 4-5 years. The reason they don't change from year to year is money. If you give me $20K every year, I'll gladly create a new theme camp every year. The theme ...

Planet Earth

This was Planet Earths first year on the Playa, and it went above and beyond my expectations. While it's not the first time I've hosted or co-hosted a camp with 80's nights on the playa, it was the first time we wrapped it up all together into a theme camp dedicated to just 80s dance music, and it w...

Lame

If they are charging camp mates dues for food, infrastructure, etc. That's totally fine. However if they are creating a service, where you can pre-pay for meals on the playa, whether you're part of the camp or not, how is that not commerce at Burning Man?

Map

Very nice... however I believe you have your coordinates on the plaza'a wrong. From what I was told, when you're on the plaza, 12:00 is towards the man, not towards deep playa, you have what should be 12:00 on the 9-oclock plaza as 3:00. I'm 99% sure my camp (Planet Earth) which is on the plaza and ...

Re: suggestions?

Offer a raffle drawing for the set numer of early entry passes everyone can enter, you don't need to be part of a theme camp (exceptions to the approved art placement) - and now you've created a more fair environment. The rewards for being a theme camp are reduced, so I suspect theme camp requests ...

If you're trying to get placement for your theme camp, I'm afraid you missed the deadline by roughly 55 days.

Not yet, Theme Camp placement won't be announced for awhile, in past years it was around early August. Once we know our location I'll post it to this thread.
