So Perry et al what's new for our theme camp this year?

Maybe a carnival of some sort offering games of skill, luck, or what the *er* heck.
We could all come up with assorted tricks and treats.
Might be fun for the whole family...

Thoughts?

Thinking, Thinking, Thinking....ouch. Enough of that for one day. Surely others are better at planning activities. I'd suggest not doing food or bar, or something needing much more construction than what we had last year. I'll try to line up some geotype conscripts-er volunteers. Doesn't need to be geologists, anyone that might want to present an informal scientific talk for a few folks, or be around once in a while to answer simple questions with long verbose convoulted multisyllabic arm waving postulatitudinal responses heavily interspersed with Greek and Latin sounding isms, step right up. My three minutes of knowledge don't fill an evening for sure.

Bam,
I think that since we need to interact more with the community that your idea may work and would be relatively easy I think. We could incorporate some of these games with the scientific themes that were discussed earlier. And/Or come up with some vintage games. Like instead of pin the tail on the donkey we could pin little airstreams on Perry : ) I like the carni idea. What does everyone else think?

The ideas for carni games are endless. And it is easy.

Just pick a day and time, put up a few signs, and have some fun.
Burnstream court did it in 2007 and it was fun.

Everyone can pick something and we can have a variety of things/games/entertainment to offer.

I have an old vintage croquet set. How civilized!

Some things we've done @ other theme camps:

  1. ran a bar.... fun, but kind of boring after doing it one evening... bondage theme one year was unusual... dealing w/ really blitzed folks not that fun.
  2. built talking rude flowers - funny, but lots of technical issues. .. did not require lots of time on playa.
  3. ran a "make your own edible pasties" kiosk w/ fortune cookie dough.... really funny, and not boring.
  4. various cooking themes - food/neat beverages are a bigger draw than alcohol. Green tea was popular. Coffee is always a win (remember our charming barista next door...).
  5. Games are fun... figure out prizes ahead of time.
  6. One camp did giant jenga - much hilarity.

If we get our camp listed in "what where when how" guide, lots more
folks show up....

Bart, remind me of that when it gets closer to filling out the application.

I just went back through the posts, Zep mentioned doing a presentation on mapping software, types of maps, datums and such..Bart might do a presentation on a propane poofer..Charlyf might have GIS capability...I'll probably have some little talk about the playa dust.. There's already a few evenings after dinner possibilities for the boring science stuff... Bam and Jojo have some fun carni ideas, and hey its still Valentines Day.

Good going already!
Mid April I'll need to be getting an idea of the size of the camp to beg for, 2010's camp was a pure guess, with Zep and Mark's help.

Next, how many BM 2011 tee shirts should we get ordered, if there's interest in at least a few dozen I'm pretty sure I could coerce an artist I know, (or we could ask him to make us more of his BM 2009 Evolution shirts that few folks have yet) .... and there's a pendant design in the works like the one I wore last year, we're adding an outline of an A/S inside the Man.

BurningMan Theme this year is something about ROP, not sure what we could do with rope....

We also have an old croquet set, but how's this for a variation:

I have 3 hedgehog squeaky toys, mint condition, that are nearly round enough to roll. If we turn our plastic pink flamingos upside down, we could have a croquet game ala Alice in Wonderland.

My wife (Kim) and I will be on the Playa once again this year, our 6th. We will be camping with another camp but would love to hang out from time to time. We have never been to a rally and so I have no idea what an original Airstream looks like. My 69 Overlander is sure not one

Monte, does it predict wind too? Or probably just expect advection wind from the temp. I'm not that excited about hot, but dry is nice.

Interesting thing, I've found that if you look at our rally in the rally calender without logging in, you get a list with 4 on it: BamCamper[01-11-2011 01:39 PM] jhelion[01-12-2011 02:31 AM]woohoo! - 4 of us. JitneyBead[01-17-2011 05:47 PM] Rhyder[02-03-2011 06:01 PM]2 Burgins in a Basecamp.
If you look up the same thing after logging in, like what Mark posted at #51 there's a list of 10 of us. Airstream Forums - Burning Man 2011

Doesn't take much to comfusinate me today.

Here's something from the BurningMan energy. There's a bunch of folks that do neat stuff year round called "Burners without Borders", like the bunch that found out about the Katrina hurricane that happened during Burningman, and went down to N'Orleans and helped build houses and things. If you've never been to BurningMan, there's almost no radio, no TV, no internet, many cell phones don't work, you'll find it's a week of total news vacuum, unless somebody has a satellite link. Here's a fellow Burner that went to Cairo to help clean up just now: Cleanup in Cairo, part 1 | Love and Trash, a DIY blog for people who do things differently.
