2013 Tickets being sold here.

Postby oneeyeddick » Thu Feb 16, 2012 12:34 pm

At the Center camp, this year, but not until Sunday.

Just thought I would run it up the ol' flagpole before the Borg thinks of it and makes it official.

Cool, I'll take 75 tickets and sell at a profit to "fund my camp"

Sorry toots.

Limit is one per person,
and your photo will be taken on the spot before we mail you the actual physical ticket to you on July 24th, 2013, which will have your photo imprinted on the ticket for verification at the gate.

We have an understanding that some of you need to go home early, that why the tickets don't go on sale till after the Temple burns.

OED, you didn't get the word. The 2013 ticket will be tattooed on you in center camp this year...it also comes with a cryptochip implant to prevent forgeries. No more forgetting to pack tickets.

I cut off my dreads and lost a bunch of weight over the course of the year (and so did the 75 other people with similar photos) and now the gate workers aren't sure if it's me in the photo and we're clogging up the enterence. I paid for a ticket, I made art, I've got bacon and tequila, I drove 1,000 miles, I demand to see the man burn!

Being kippered might get you brownie points with the new ticketing system we are rolling out this year, but showing actual scars will help ensure your success.

Oh, I almost forgot.

If you have missing limbs you are automatically given one ticket per missing limb, these are non-transferable, of course.

Fingers don't count, unless you do that neato trick where you stick your stub into your nose hole and pretend like you are scratching your brain and let us take a picture of that for your ticket imprint.
Doing this will get you 20% off your ticket when you purchase it at center camp.

Some misinterpretation of the rules is to be expected due to supply/demand.

Please be patient while we finger this one out.

Due once again to circumstances beyond our control we have an announcement to make.

In order to obtain tickets at center camp for the 2013 burn you must actually be able to ride a unicycle, or play a ukulele.

If you can do both at the same time you are eligible for 2 tickets.

Those who applied for tickets in 2012 and weren't awarded tickets will get priority in the pre-sale at center camp.

In 2013 all the tickets will be crumpled up, half of them will be thrown into a dust storm. You'll then be allowed to chase them and grab as many as you like. For those who don't get a ticket this way the remaining crumpled tickets will be put in a big big hat and you'll be allowed to pull one out. If you grab two you'll have to go to the end of the line and wait your turn to try again. If you still don't get a ticket the first 5,000 people who give away all their playa gear to a nubie gets a ticket. And finally if you can prove it was you that wore that one piece green lycra suit in the previous year you'll get a ticket.

Just out of curiosity, what if I can ride a ukulele and play a unicycle at the same time. Am I still eligible for tickets?
