After lots of soul searching on whether we actually would attend this year due to the ticketing decisions of BMORG my family decided to go for it, so 2012 is my year to FINALLY burn! Spoke with about 6 different theme camps about joining but we are an industrious bunch and we thought since there are so many virgins this year we will have our own totally virgin theme camp:-) I submitted the plan yesterday for the Black Rock City Parks and Recreation theme camp by virgins so we will see if we get placed or not, but regardless we will be there in our full virgin force!
Our plan is for a family oriented playground camp and will include foot powered "yabadabadoo" bumper cars and bumper car ring, revolving teeter totters, swings, park benches with misted shade, body and face painting as well as amazing playa wear we have crafted ourselves to gift, and a craft table with supplies to make Black Rock City souvenirs/memorabilia to keep or gift. We are a family unit, middle aged adults with adult children, pretty mellow, and uber prepared. We have pretty much everything we need, I am not looking for money, just for participation. We live in WA state but that does not really matter unless you do live anywhere close and want to help build the bumper cars and ring but we will have it all done regardless. To participate on playa you just need to be there and commit to help out by being in the camp for shifts you can sign up for. Since we are new there is no chance of any of the BMORG's distributed tickets so we cannot offer that, but if you are a ticketed virgin, not too crazy rowdy, feel you could commit to manning the playground at certain times and want to camp with very organized happy campers let me know. Single virgin burners that were lucky enough to get a ticket, you are totally welcome to go with us as well as families or couples or anyone else for that matter. With that said, none of us really want to babysit folks that are unprepared or do not know how to maintain so please keep that in mind. While we would of course help any other person in need, I really do not want to be holding your hair back while you are puking with a hangover...at least not repeatedly:-) We are open and nonjudgmental however and if you can maintain whatever makes your hair fly back is fine with us! We may have a alter abled registered vehicle if we can manage it and if anyone joins and is coming from the NW extra transportation for the playground rides would be helpful but again we will manage if not.
So....putting it out there....any virgins want to participate in a big way your first year let us know!
