Re: OK or not: DJ-style "dancing" bike-mounted laser?

You are absolutely not allowed to use one of those. You should take the time to read the guidelines posted on the main site since for the last couple years adherence to the event's laser policy is usually included on the event's closure order , which means that if you get busted with something you'd...

ePlaya 2018 Updates

I am very pleased to announce that at long last, and after a couple false starts, we have finished a bunch of updates to ePlaya for 2018. All in all, in the last week the site software, our custom style, and more than 18 extensions were updated. Under the hood, there are a number of improvements to ...

Re: uHaul Trailer capped at 5 days?

With any rental provider, when in doubt (or when the web interface doesn't display an option), call the number and speak to a human. In most cases they can help get things resolved for you.

Re: Using EMT and PVC for the same shade structure

It sounds dumb to me. PVC will heat to the point of becoming pretty damned flexible and unstable in that type of a design after only a few hours under the best of conditions. It only really works in a monkey hut type situation because that design is built around that flexibility. Good, solid shade d...

Re: Emergency food

Re: I forgot to register my camp! Dodgeball!

It's also worth noting that on the off chance you don't find the right fit, you can set up and have Dodge Ball at your camp regardless of whether you get placement or not. IMO, the best way to plan for this would look something like this: Ahead of the event, if you don't already have them look at pi...
