Theme camp placement... maybe today?

Theme camp placement... maybe today?

Postby chrispburn » Fri Jul 27, 2007 9:56 am

Harley's message on thurs, july 26:

Our mapping is just about done -- and everything is looking great,
thanks to all your hard work and creativity! You should be hearing
about your home in Black Rock City VERY shortly.



what do you think -- maybe today? Anybody remember if it's been announced on Fridays in the past few years? That's what I seem to remember.

IF that's the case, I better clear my schedule now, as pandimonium and an email flurry will commence as soon as that hits...

Shes such the tease.. who knows. Many camps got early leaks of placement but I havent heard a word. Theyve done a great job of keeping the anticipation up thats for sure.

OK, I thought it was just me - "page not found", but I guess not.

I have my entire camp IMing me with "Where are we? Where are we placed? Are we there yet?"

I think I did not appreciate my school bus drivers enough...

I emailed them, and I know AG knows, so I'm sure they'll get it fixed.

maybe they've changed their minds and giving everyone
Esplanade space.

That would be sooooo cool.

as a side note - along with the link was:

Here you go! REMEMBER - Posting this URL to your public list is not
cool. Some of you have requested confidentiality with your placement.


I anxious to get our space planning done - other than that, BM should have some surprise/random experiences left, don't cha think?

Huh? Confidentiality with their placement? What, are they in a witness protection program? Why the hell would a group care if people know where they got placed?

I have seen some camps destroyed by their popularity, maybe they just want to be something people discover instead of something the hooting hordes seek out?

Either that or a conspiracy involving monkeys, I could go either way.

Also AAAAAAAAAARRRGHHHHHH!

I know the PeeFunnel folks always ask to remain somewhat mysterious in their placement. Otherwise they would get totally overwhelmed right away. Word of mouth probably keeps the visitors to a steady stream.

*WOof!*

Discreet Camps

Everyone knows that the D & E blocks (between 8-8:30, naturally) are the most highly sought after real estate on the playa.

The Gold Coast, if you will.

All the camps there insist on the utmost discretion.

Well it isn't exactly what we wanted, but its good! So the next question I have.... Who actually has a map of all of this so I can tell if we are on a corner or not??? lol That will affect our layout dramatically.


*WOof!* :-P
