Weekly organizational meetings (prior to camp)

These meeting are optional, but please try to make a few of them: it will help us all to be better prepared.   On a weekly basis the meeting rotates: ½ Sunday, ¼ Monday, ¼ Tuesdays.


For more information see the [this document].


All will be 7:00 PM Pacific Time, 10: PM Eastern Time

Via Google Hangouts: https://hangouts.google.com/hangouts/_/contraburners.org/campers?authuser=0


Please try to test the hangout well before the meeting: if you don't use hangouts you may need to install an applications, etc.   Video is not required.  You should see the message “Nobody here yet” if you try at random times.


We can try to add you on a regular voice line if you email or message matt.mathis@gmail.com.

Tickets! Tickets! Tickets!

They have started mailing Tickets!   This means that after market tickets are going to start appearing real soon now.  Start monitoring Craig's list and other venues for tickets.  (Never pay scalper prices!)

We (camp) may also have a couple of tickets come free.  I will be in touch with people on the camp's wait list to check to see if you are still interested.

Time to get organized

Time to get organized
We have about 10 weeks until the trec to the Plays.

Everybody, Please start gathering supplies for the Playa.    There is lots of online advice on the burning man web pages and YouTube.   
Remember that camp includes a kitchen.  We plan to bring most food for everybody, but everybody must bring their own emergency rations.

Please take a moment to do a quick review everything on the website and read the stuff that has been updated.

I will be calling people soon, seeking volunteers for specific jobs.






Please register for camp and to buy Burning Man tickets!

The main ticket sale is Noon Pacific Time, Wednesday March 29th.
It will only take a few minutes to sell 30,000 tickets.

To participated you must pre-register, March 22nd-24th.  See Get Tickets for details.

If there is ANY chance that you might want to join us at Burning Man (or you just want to be helpful)  please plan to sign up and try to buy tickets.  We will set up an in camp ticket matching service, so if you can't go your purchase will enable somebody else to go.

In past years only 10-25% of the people who participated in the main sale were successful.   With such low odds it would be a huge help for people can't go but do have the cash to buy tickets on speculation.   See: Ticket Faeries.  (No scalping!)

To participate in the camp ticket matching service and to help us plan, please register for camp itself at Get Connected.

Register NOW for Directed Group Sale (DGS) Burning Man tickets

Advance sale tickets for camp personnel, talent and perhaps ticket faeries go on sale Mar 1.  To participate you MUST register for camp (at Get Connected) before the DGS application window opens, Feb 14th closes Feb 24.

Everybody who expects to camp with us is eligible for these tickets.   We do not know how many we will receive.

Since it is easier to change your mind from yes to no, please sign up now if there is ANY chance you might attend.  It might be very hard to get tickets later.
