A number of lessons were learned last year (2008) regarding making this theme camp happen. Hopefully things will improve for 2009
Once again the idea is put forward, now its just time to start tossing about ideas and plans for 2009.
It's not my intention from sneaking this idea from SHAKEY in any way. This was his idea, and keeping the BM spirit in mind - he still is rolling the (mirror) ball.
Things we learned from last year was securing placement - even if not reserved. Once that is achieved - hopefully long before 2009's burn, those wishing to join in any festivities will be veterans via the planning stages.
Ideally - from reviewing last year's thread, the idea is obviously "commemorating the 80's". The music, the fashion, and the gadgets.
Proposed at this moment is a communial space, with participants camped nearby. This be a rather large tent and entertainment space.
Since the Black Rock City environment has many other activities going on all week, I doubt we as a group do something every night. Perhaps a few evening parties featuring music and other fads from the 80's. Again - the joy of any planning stage is the tossing about of ideas. Perhaps a few small events, and one major event Thursday night. Of course the communal area be available for gatherings all the time at any time.
It is not my intention in any way to steal the show out from under SHAKEY. I am just hoping to continue - with his guidance and input, along with many of the others whom were considering joining the camp from 2008 to 2009. Now its just planning and tossing ideas and see where they lead, as well as whom else is interested and to what degree.
Input, ideas and other thoughts or ideas are most welcome.
Could it be that this be our "evolution"?
