It's not about taking the "law" into your own hands. These are rules, not laws. Leave the law enforcement up to Sheriff Skinner's bunch and the BLM types. Also we go back to the fundamentals...this is an experiment in temporary community. That gives us carte blanche to make up our own rules if somet...

Unjun, you snuck your post in while I was writing mine. Enforcement is going to fall on us. The Rangers won't do a damn thing...so it's up to us to sort this out. BRC is an experiment in building a temporary community and that includes communication so if you run with that thought this is truly our ...

Hmmm...self-policing? Publish the SPL measurements and encourage the camps to buy the basic $40 meters and put the responsbility back on the camps. If a camp can spend thousands of dollars on getting all that stuff out there what's $40 in the grand scheme of things? Plus it would be good for the cam...

If the city had "Loud" and "Quiet" areas, this issue would be easier to resolve, maybe, but the Org no longer seems to think that is feasible or desireable. Why?

I like that idea as I take a camera but find it's kind of a pain to deal with out there so it usually only sees use on the road trip out and back. However even if all of the participants could be persuaded to leave the cameras at home you have the ORG's mission of promoting the event and allowing th...
