Re: Trilo on Tickets

sorry Zaphod, perhaps i wasn't clear enough, yes Burning Man is massively exciting I wouldnt be coming otherwise. But and this is a big but, if the theme camps can't make it and people cannot make plans because they won't know till march if they can make "big art" then it means we will have the res...

Re: how will STEP be structured?

it doesnt really matter since only like 17 tickets will be sold back to STEP anyway I heard from an inside source at the LLC that on Feburary 29th, they will actually be cutting off the head of a chicken and then will distribute tickets to selected theme camps depending on the patterns of the blood...

Re: New BRC Vehicle Sound Policy

Actually, it was done as a request to give some breathing room to the large art pieces and the rest of the playa. A lot of the large art pieces were being used as very large party backdrops, sometimes with competing sound systems. A number of the artists complained they couldn't even work at their ...

Re: 2012 Theme Camps - will you make it this year?

The problem with some of the stats, as I see it, is that most of the numbers are coming from registered theme or otherwise large camps. There are a lot of totally unaffilliated people who go to Burning Man, and by this I am not just talking about 'tourists' or 'spectators'. I was one of them until ...

3rd time burner here. Completely appreciate what you are doing to rectify the situation. I think all the STEP ticket should go to theme camp members. STEP tickets will only trickle in, IMHO.
