Where Are You Volunteering in 2016..... ?

A unique and distinctive culture emerges from the Burning Man experience. Rooted in the values expressed by the Ten Principles, this culture is manifested around the globe through art, communal effort, and innumerable individual acts of self-expression. To many, it is a way of life.

Looking forward to meeting you both, winterdream and Chaps! I'll be there, so shout around for "scout."

Remember that you don't have to sign up ahead of time, so any day you realize "oh, it's mid-to-late-afternoon-ish!" come by Center Camp. If you're early, we'll be having one of our themed parties in the lounge. If you're the planning sort, gate Sunday, man burn Saturday, and pre-event Saturday tend to be the days when we need the most help.

No, I don't have extra tickets. Don't ask me how to sneak in. I don't care if you are Larry's lover. If you arn't on Gate road, you have to deal with me or my crew. (By the way, Since Burning Man happens of Federal Land - any LE related tickets/citations/etc have Federal consequences...)
Turns out I am not burning this year. No issues, just taking a year off to do different stuff in possibly less dry conditions...

Hope everyone has an AMAZING burn! :)

Sorry to hear that Rice. You drove/trained my first Perimeter shift in 2014; turns out I'm more a Gate gal but my husband Malty got hooked. Hope to see you in 2017!

The Lamplighters are special. They walk by us at the Black Rock Beacon every year, and what happens? We start up the chorus of

"WE LOVE YOU, LAMPLIGHTERS!!"

They are good people who are underappreciated.

go to your burner profile, you should be able to find the volunteer questionaire there. you can always swing by playa info at center camp during the event. I believe they have an on the spot volunteer board there.

If you decide to put in some volunteer time at the last minute, go to Center Camp. The Volunteer Resource Team runs the 'V Spot' in Center Camp. They have the low down on who's short handed.

Yes it is!
Ice cubed, like to the 3rd power.

Did you sign up for any shifts?
Obviously you did, because it was mentioned at least twice in earlier posts.
Should have read older posts before asking questions :x

I'm volunteering at The Zendo Project this year. I'm really looking forward to having shifts to go to outside of my camp.

Greeters is the BEST job on playa. Come out to play with us. Please sign up - but if you haven't, check in with the Lead greeter, who will train you, let you greet with a veteran greeter to get comfy, and then you get to welcome a lot of people home.
