2012 Volunteer opportunities - partial list

Postby danprater » Thu Dec 22, 2011 2:47 pm

FYI post.

Volunteering is a valuable and *extremely* rewarding part of anyone's Burning Man experience, both on- and off-playa. I would love to have members of each group write a haiku description of what each group does, perhaps including the type of person that migrates to these roles (like for example, the Gate people are often misanthropic, greeters are God damn cheery people, Rangers are the dad you never had, etc; these are obviously not in haiku form. Whatever.)

Anyway, here are some major groups to volunteer with both on- and off-playa (in alphabetical order):

Air Playa Info
Airport
Artery
Black Rock Gazette
BMIR (Black Rock Information Radio)
Box Office
BRS (Black Rock Solar)
BRAF (Black Rock Art Foundation)
BWB (Bruners Without Borders)
Empire-Gerlach Bus Service
Arctica
Center Camp Cafe
Census
DPW (Department of Public Works)
DMV (Department of Mutant Vehicles)
Earth Guardians
ESD (Emergency Services)
Gate/Perimeter/Exodus
Greeters
Lamplighters
LEAL (Law Enforcement & Agency Liaison)
Media Mecca
Placement/Flagging
Playa Info
Rangers
Recycle Camp
Regional Networks
San Francisco Office Squad
Special Events
Technology Teams
Volunteer Resource Team

Sent in my app. Gonna get a gig one new way or the other yearly tradition. Long haul or short time-get it done on the weekend. I'll be there.

What, don't you want to put up signs and rip thousands of feet of duct tape?

I love putting up the signs and I plan on doing it again. But you see...This being on 6 month probation at work twice for two different positions has left me with a SHITLOAD of vacation time. Vacation and Comp Time added together = I could take a month off of work right now!. So what the hay. I filled out a volunteer app and indicated I'd be willing and qualified to drive semi for DPW. I could do that shit for 2 weeks prior and 1 week after. Maybe more. Hell... If I was done driving and I was available...I'd put up signs too!!!

Not to worry Robbidobbs. I'm still dedicated to the Potty Project. It's fun and I dig tearing roughly two thousand strips of duck tape. The company is excellent and one is never far from a pot to pis in. 8)

I'll kiss you full on the mouth...if that's what you want anyway.
Oh shit this is my first post. I should be nice.

Ok, We'd love to have you on board. And Robbi said that you'll have fun if you can get in on DPW.

Gonzo, it was such a pleasure meeting you in 2011 after years of reading your poetry. :D Welcome to the board!

(I was with you, Robbidobbs, Motskyroonmatick, & Plowman for a lark @ the 8:30 potties the day before Gates.)
