Is this ticket fake?

Post by mnmng » Tue Aug 28, 2018 10:55 am

Hi, I am a first burner and just got a ticket. This ticket looks like fake...
Does anyone know this is real or fake?
No redemption code on the backside of the ticket.
Please let me know, I need a help!
Thank you.

A couple years ago, ‘15 or ‘16, the DMV mailed a bunch of us a letter, which made no mention of it but the envelope had a free ticket inside.
Instant big exciting thrill!
Upon closer inspection it was a last-year’:s ticket.
That was a good one, they totally got me. It’s good that the time honored Burning Man traditions of misinformation and fuckery are alive and well.

Each year that I have volunteered at the event (14,15,15,17), around January, I have received a Thank You letter/envelope from BM ORG that was signed by the leaders of the venues where I volunteered and also enclosed was a real ticket from the previous year.

I've gotten the same. It's lovely to have a non-destroyed copy (though I have my dusty "real" tickets from those years as well)
