Theme Camp Cancelation Announcement Thread

Postby 1durphul » Thu Feb 02, 2012 12:33 pm

Since so many camps were so completely decimated by the lottery perhaps what we really need is a thread for theme camps to announce that they aren't going to make it this year. Keep your anger out of the thread, and please keep the drift to a minimum. This is really just for informational purposes, not an act of protest. If you have the numbers and want to post them please also include camp size (# of people), and your estimated ticket holder percentage from the lottery.

Why wont they? There are still tickets out there and still have 200 days to get them. People will back out ect. This lottery is not the end of the world kids. Just like BMORG said they are working on a way to get camps to the playa.

That's a lot of 'if' to balance months of work and thousands of bucks in investment on, is likely why.

Jesus, do we really need another poor-me "I'm taking my ball and going home" whine-fest/tempter tantrum ? Can't we just keep this to the ticketing thread. It is nice to be on playa and NOT be reminded of the ticketing disaster every 2 seconds.....We get it. Some camps got few tickets.... There is a lovely thread for that in the ticketing forum....


PS - I'm saying this as someone not awarded a ticket in a fairly large theme camp that is till waiting to see how things shake out...

Just tired of hearing about this everywhere. When I want to rant or hear rants, I go to the ticketing forum.... I was just thinking how nice it was to have the 2012 Theme Camps section be such an oasis from the ticketing clusterfuck until I started seeing these pop-up.... Is there anywhere on ePlaya that we don't have to be bombarded with reminders about how fucked everything got this year???? Should I expect a rant section in the Q&A/Tips & Tricks forum as well? Let some of us have some peace.... Like I said, I am down there with them... I don't have a ticket and don't know if I will be going. It would nice not to be reminded of this every 2 seconds.... that's all....

Well fuck me for not noticing the sub-forum. You do make a good point.

I never go to the individual forums ever since Trillo went crazy with OCD. I just clicks the "new posts" link.

My bad.

So, yeah. Stop yer fuckin' whining in the wrong forum!

OMFG, the only people in our camp to get tickets are doing something else this year... so we're at ZERO PERCENT.

So f'n what... WE'LL be there, even if we have to set up a dome off Jungo Road and be there ourselves.

We got over HALF A YEAR to get tix. Wanna take your ball and go home? GOOD - Leaves more room for those of us who aren't afraid to pull a smaller, tighter, and leaner camp off.

DO YOU REMEMBER - the FIRST year you did your camp? You weren't half as scared as you are now, and you had 1000x more obstacles to clear. You did it then... and you want to back out because of a flacking HICCUP???

We'll see YOU on the playa, TatGoddess... Shots at Sunset, Kantina Apokiliptika.

Here's a helpful hint, friend.

Read the subject of the thread and if you don't like it, don't participate in the discussion.

Hope that helps.

Greetings folks! Lots of people getting off topic here it seems like. Anyway....

I put together The Master-BASS-Sin Station last year. Out of the 30 or so people from our camp, I think maybe 6 got tickets (me not included). We are going to downsize substantially this year and team up with some other folks. No sound, but the bar, which was the best part of our camp, will be there in full effect! Now I just gotta figure out this ticket thing!
Yo people! Check out soundcloud.com/dubble_penetration for some free tunes and things! Thanks!

Our themecamp of 30 people is cancelling our plans on registering and providing for the community. We were planning on going super big this year and bringing shade, domes, fire and food. Due to a threat from the Black Rock Rangers made openly on eplaya we cannot register for fear of our campmates being falsely arrested by corrupt law enforcement.

If anyone is concerned about the detail contained in the threat the thread was titled occupy brc tickets and was created by someone not affiliated with our camp. The threat was made by Badger of the Black Rock Rangers.

Oh boy.... you are making a big mistake confusing "BBadger" with "Badger" and simultaneously badmouthing the Rangers. Where is ISO when you need her? (Pssst.... Black Rock Rangers are not law enforcement...)

I'm pulling up a lawn chair and passing out popcorn for this one.

This isn't the first time he has gone through this example of personal ineptitude.

He was already told the facts about who is who, but it appears that he is developmentally disabled, and will continue licking the glass on the rear window of the bus just because he like the pretty streaks it leaves behind.

Its become obvious that Badger is developmentaly disabled no matter what account he posts under. But the threats made in the ticket thread are just outrageous. To threaten to collude with law enforcement in order to invent a false arrest of a participant is just out of control. Censorship has to be stopped, PERIOD. Initially I didnt take the thrats of burning tents and whatnot seriously when they were made via skype. But now that serious threats are being made on an open forum I am going to have to take it seriously. Condoning theft of private property is one thing, threatening to abuse your position with the Black Rock Rangers in order to get someone locked up with a invented case is alot more serious.
