Theme Camp Placement Notice

Postby zorro sings » Tue Feb 07, 2012 3:09 pm

Thought this might have been discussed by now.Interesting how it almost pleads(the somewhat ironic"hedge your bets" line) with theme camps to register despite the fact that they may not get it fully together for 2012.Risking alot of empty lots but what can you do?The tone of the email was seemed concilatory to the camps and imagine a lot of slack will be granted for theme camps that do manage to set up this year.

We hope to perhaps fuse with another camp to pull it off this year.Imagine other camps may be thinking same thing. Of course working out details of some kind of merger with some other camp may be tricky.Made more so with the April 26th deadline and need to figure out what area of the city to apply for that both camps are happy with.In any case,although with no certainty we will be there,we will register.Youneverknow.

Hello Campers -

The current ticket shortage has hit us very hard. We are writing to encourage you to register your camp, even if you are short of tickets. Thanks to those of you who have been sending feedback, suggestions, and hard figures and data around the current ticket shortage. What's encouraging is the community is, after the initial "@$##!!", pulling together, and some ticket needs are slowly decreasing as camps gage their own ticket inventories and work toward redistribution. Please 'hedge your bets' and register.

If you haven't yet, please read the blog post from February 3rd here:
http://blog.burningman.com/2012/02/news ... situation/

In a nutshell:

"Burning Man’s most important priority is to make sure the community stays intact in the face of the current challenges."

The ticket shortage is impacting theme camps, mutant vehicle projects, and also Burning Man's core volunteer infrastructure. The majority of our volunteer staff of our departments have always purchased their own tickets.

With that commitment in mind, we want to encourage you to register your camp, though it appears currently that you do not have enough tickets for even your core people. We do not want you to miss the opportunity to register your camp, should solutions to your ticket shortage appear after the April 26th Placement registration deadline. The Placement questionnaire goes live in nine days: on Wednesday February 15th at noon Pacific Time.

Finally, look for information on this list soon for how to RSVP and attend our upcoming our upcoming Placement Resource Forums
Limited seats in person, via phone and the web will all be options. For now, save one of these two dates:

Wednesday, February 15th, 6-9pm Pacific Time
Saturday, March 24th, 11am-2pm Pacific Time

Hang in there.

Thank you,

- Placement

I am certain Barbie Death Village will be teeming with people this year, some newbies to TTITD, some newbies to our camp who camped elsewhere last year, and some grizzled veterans such as myself. A little ticket SNAFU is not going to stop the best damn theme camp on the playa from getting their shit together. So we're looking forward, always forward; we'll see you in the desert.

Wise words, my friend, Omar..... Yes, this certainly poses larger challenges for many Theme Camps, and risk of moneys going into April. Although we had already decided not to Theme camp this year, many of our close brethren are very concerned.....

It is good to note your collective plight is on their "radar", and here is to hopes of a do-able solution.... I truly hope your camp and many others are able to pull something off this year.....

Comrade,Fraternal greetings from our socialist and revolutionary camp.We hold high your Juche example in the highest regard and take heart in your unbending stance of ever advancing in the face of ill winds brought about by the fervor of The Popular Masses in their desire to share our Sacred and PBR stained Dust.

Our history of shared sacrifice in solidarity and service to The People is legendary and common knowledge to all fair minded observors.

After the recall of our Newspeak Translator from Aleppo we have devined your message as worthy of further talks,at the highest levels, in how the year 2012 may play out for our ever resiliant entities. As always we are grateful for your kind words and profuse in our praise for the leadership of the VII Congress of the fraternal and progressive Apokoliptika.

Always For The People Omar Suarez President A'Vie
