Here's the latest from the ol' playa postcardmiester, Annie. She has created a great "Phony Express" playa stamp that the post office will print for postcards @ a cost of $.89 or she cant print off the same stamp that will require a regular $.29 stamp to go along with it. Last year we went through $??? in stamps. Question. Would you like official post office stamps (and will we get financial help) or should we go with the play stamp and hope some of you will help us with $.29 stamps? Annie has been working on some great signs for a "Phony Express" office. We're hoping someone will come up with some saddle bags for delivery of the card to the BRC post office. I'd love to post her stamp design to this forum, but I don't know how. If anyone would like to see them, let me know your email and I will send it.

I've seen ads for making your own legal stamps, but I never looked into what they charged for that. Way too much. I suggest every one support Chollabill with bringing some stamps. I usually gift the BRC post office with bunches of stamps anyway, they really appreciate it. I'll start bugging our post master (89411) for card stamps, he gets a kick out of getting a Black Rock City (89412) card. Maybe BRC will go get the Empire zip code, I just read they are closing the town and loosing their zip.

I've looked up the permits required, they don't look that intimidating, even a geologist could figure them out. Basically, no home cooked, or wild game, or road kill, only store bought ice, and you need a wash station (spigot on a barrel of water and soap) and a 3 basin utinsel wash; (wash, rinse, sanitize) AND someone be skeweried on the permit as the responsible person, and take food prep temperatures on a log. So here goes the Placement Announce from today::

NEW FOR 2011: FOOD PREP FOR ≥125? - PUBLIC OR PRIVATE - NOW NEEDS A PERMIT

In order to fight the threat of food-born illness on the playa, this year the Nevada State Health Division (NSHD) is expanding their requirements
for camps preparing food who must have a health permit and schedule an inspection. You must apply for and be permitted as a Temporary Food
Establishment by the NSHD if:

• [NEW] You will be cooking or serving food to large groups of more than 125* FELLOW CAMPERS of your theme camp on a consistent basis.

(If you have a communal kitchen shared by 125 or more campers, but meals are prepared individually, or in smaller quantities than for
125 persons, a permit is not required, however we highly recommend you research and review safe food handling practices, starting with
the Nevada Division of Health information).

• You wish to share, cook or serve food or beverages to the general Burning Man population (gifting food).

Bars and pre-packaged food exception:

• NSHD does NOT require permits of, or regulate vendors who wish to share, prepare, or serve the following items only:
o Alcoholic beverages
o Foods that are commercially pre-packaged, individually packaged/packaged by serving and non-temperature sensitive.

• Temporary Food Establishment Applications are available online at the NSHD’s Environmental Health Section website:

http://health.nv.gov/BFHS_EHS.htm -- Scroll down to the Burning Man specific content denoted with flames.

Applying

The health department has forms ready to send out to you. It costs about $50.00 to apply for a basic permit. The process is simple and
the health department is easy to work with. They are genuinely concerned about the health of our citizens and prevention of food-born
epidemics, so it is their duty to inspect food preparation areas. Like the other public safety agencies on the playa, they can issues
citations and fines for violations, and/or shut you down for non-compliance.

ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS: Please contact Cindy Ulch (775) 623-6591 or email culch@health.nv.gov.
You may also contact Ellen Kunz (775) 623-6588 or emailekunz@health.nv.gov in Cindy’s absence.

If you are not COMPLETELY sure about your particular needs, we strongly advise you to contact us before calling them. They need about
4 weeks to process your permit so don't leave this to the last minute. Contact us or them soon!

The process in the last couple of years is for you to send your permit fee to the Health Department. On the playa, they will have morning
hours at Playa Info in Center Camp to give you your permits and arrange for your inspection. Future announcements will have their days
and hours for permit distribution. We will also be posting a reminder about food permits -- including important deadlines -- in the weeks ahead.

Please pass this information to who ever it concerns in your camp.

Water

Large quantities of water (250 gallons+) being used for projects that
entail full body contact or consumption by people must be "potable"
and come from state health department approved water sources. If you
are bringing in a water truck or are hauling in large amounts of water
you should speak to us directly. There are health department
regulations that you need to be aware of. Email us at placement@burningman.com

Water being used for misting systems and ways that do not involve consumption
do not need health department clearance. It is wise to make sure that you have
"potable" water and the source is reputable!

Public pools and showers will not be permitted. Art pieces
involving water are not considered showers unless they are labeled
such and encourage bathing. If you have questions about this, email us
at placement@burningman.com

Kitchen/Bars or Drinks

If you are providing beverages and/or food for your camp and friends,
no health permit is needed.

PUBLIC kitchens of any sort need a permit. Remember, Burning Man does
not tolerate the sale of anything at the event, including food. We
have cultivated a gift economy. If you are caught selling or bartering
food like currency the health department will shut you down -- if your
neighbors don't get to you first!

Fresh Squeezed Juices

Fresh juice is food. If you are giving away freshly-squeezed fruit drinks to anyone other
than your CAMPMATES and FRIENDS, you must get a permit.

Ice

Ice is considered food by the health department. Although there should
be no permits needed for bars, your ice source must be approved by state health.
The easiest way to comply is to purchase your ice from commercial sources in the
surrounding towns as you enter our city, or from us at the event. (Monies from our
ice sales go directly back to the town of Gerlach as a gift.)

GENERAL HEALTH & SAFETY

Check out our page on health related issues. There are all kinds of
interesting topics covered, from pregnancy to rebar safety, first-aid
kits, fuel storage, etc.

http://www.burningman.com/preparatio...th_safety.html

Sooooe If anybody wants to step up and has a sizzling desire to serve BACON, (or something else) here's the forms:

Nevada State Health Division

http://health.nv.gov/PDFs/BFHS/Tempo...ctionSheet.pdf

http://health.nv.gov/PDFs/BFHS/TempF...Guidelines.pdf

and no, we haven't heard anything back about being placed, that probly won't be until July-ish.

Nope... sorry man! The empire thing... They are idling the plant, so the zip code is being "closed" because the post office was closed. Actually, all empire mail now goes to Gerlach for a short while. The Postal service will hold the zip code until it re-opens.. (hopefully). I doubt they'll recycle it.

It's weird driving around in Empire now (it's gated and closed so the general public can NOT go in)... No more cars, no more anything.. Just empty houses. I'll probably take some pictures in a week or 2... Nevada's newest instant Ghost town...

But on the BRC note, a new zip code for it would ROCK! Right now our postmaster in Gerlach separates the mail, and the BRC PO picks it up daily.. Not a real big deal actually, but even so.. Our own zip on playa would be damn cool....

Taz, how's the 4th JuPlaya turning out? I'm still hoping to get out there this weekend but might just camp in the truck for a night or two. No work here for days, now I'm hearing rumor of an all night transformer swap out about Thursday and Friday.
I'll try GPS to the Man coordinates when I get there.

The playa looks good. The lake it still out there, but it's about 2-4 miles north of last years event site. Note it moves based on the wind. It's ok driving between 3 and 12 mile, but I do not know how it is on the trego side, which is where most people go for the 4th. Also don't go farther south then 3 mile. You'll get stuck!

Placement: WeStillDon'tKnow! Here's a bit of the latest placement announce:

PLACEMENT ANNOUNCEMENT
The process is taking a bit longer than in previous years, but we are committed to contacting you individually in one week, to let you know if you have or have not been placed, and to give you your approximate location.
There's been some confusion, so we want to again say that the website listing of camps at
http://www.burningman.com/themecamps/11_camp_vill.html is of all the camps who requested placement. It is not a list of camps that have been given placement for 2011.

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>

RITES OF PASSAGE CITY PLAN
Our city is bigger this year. There are sixteen new short radial streets. 2011 will see the birth of a new mid-city corridor/boulevard.
The 2011 city plan can be found here for viewing and download:
http://www.burningman.com/preparation/maps/11_maps/

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
RADIO BROADCAST YOUR CAMP & EVENTS!
BMIR-FM, 94.5 is The Voice of the Man and is one of the best way to let
Black Rock City know about your theme camp and events.
If someone in your camp is an audio wizard, we are now accepting
pre-recorded announcements.
Not sure how to record something ahead of time? No worries! J Kanizzle,
BMIR's Production Manager has put together this handy tutorial that
shows you how to download and configure Audacity, a free audio recording
program. The tutorial then takes you through the basics of creating your
very own announcement.
The tutorial can be found at : http://tinyurl.com/mn55p5

Remember to let people know the basics : what, where and when. Please
keep announcements under 60 seconds and send them to us in either .mp3
(320 kbps) or .wav format. If you are sending us an mp3, you can just
email it to us at BMIR@BurningMan.com if it is a wav file please host
it somewhere and send us a link to download it (
http://www.megaupload.com ) is a good free service for this.

When can you send them to us? Right now. The sooner the better. BMIR
is now on the internet year round for your listening pleasure
http://www.bmir.org and starting August 1st we are going to begin
playing some of the PSA's to help build excitement for the playa this
year. We need to have them by August 21st at the latest.


Can't make the August 21st deadline? You can also put your
announcements on a CD or flash drive and hand deliver them to us on the
playa. BMIR is located in Center Camp, on the Ring Road at 5:45, right
between the Rangers and The Department of Mutant Vehicles.

Now if you just can't pull this off, no worries. The BMIR Production
Office will be open every day from 12N to 4PM during the event. You can
come in and we'll help you record an announcement right on the playa.

See you on the playa and remember to bring an FM radio!

<><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><>
SHARED REFRIGERATION



....and it goes on. Not my choice of street names for the city this year, but we're not on that committe. DMV processing is going along with about 140 applications left to be processed. Last I looked, RoboShaw is still in the Flame que, waiting on that committee to review the applications with flame effects. I've missed a few online meetings, I don't know the status of HeyWagon.

Woo and hoo.
Next month is Playa time fellow campers. Perry's photos make the playa look pretty good.
Now if we can only find out where we'll be and what the heck we'll be doing.

May I suggest that we all bring dust proof outdoor games and potential signage materials
and we can sassy up our camp upon arrival.
Perhaps a meet and greet/planning session/happy hour on Monday?

Sadly we will miss our fellow organizer Mark this year but we will carry on.
Looks like we'll have 20 or so rigs.

HeyWagon got turned down for being not lit and arty enough, with time allowed for an appeal. They also didn't seem to like that Brian offered it as transportation for the populace, although sharing his ride is what he loves to do.

We're working on a makeover that has more of a "concept" in the hopes that the extra effort and pizazz will appeal to the powers that be.
