Hello all.
I was out of the country for a couple of months but I'm back now and looking forward to the Burn this year.

The small bar will be up and running and available for everyone's use. Feel free to step up and play host/bartender and serve up whatever food or beverage you'd like to the community at large.

I do still have signs for our post card booth. Is anyone planning to host that? Annie? Bill? Pink? Did everyone get their tickets?

Plan on!
Bam

Wow, you are up close and personal to a lot of fine things going on. Bring lots of earplugs! Please come by our Best Playa Post Cards and do some painting on us and the artists making misleading post cards for the folks back home. And everybody, please bring some post card postage to gift to the post man. So, I think our address will be Airstreameri and Whatnot, 3:15 and Geek, Black Rock City, NV 89412 so we can mail ourselves something on playa.
And Plan On!

Golf cart desired for our disabled Flaming Crutchees

Hey, we have a lady coming that has a Calif disabled placard ( for some real injuries besides pins and steel in her back). No, I didn't step on her foot, her horse did that; So we'll be able to have a Disabled Vehicle on playa for her to get around on, and maybe if we're extra special she'll give the rest of us gimps a ride out to deep playa. We're looking for a golf cart; if someone has one that could come to the playa or bring to Genoa, let us know. I'm not sure yet how we'd connect to get it out of the D lot but I'm sure we can get that figured out. Had a great one found on Craigslist nearby but it got away yesterday; there's another one we want to look at with "new batteries, but needs some wiring?" I haven't had energy to check out. Thanks if you know of one.
With the Disabled sticker, the vehicle doesn't need to meet all the Mutant Vehicle requirements of the DMV, just the Disabled-ee has to be in the vehicle, the sticker would belong to her.

And more Placement Announce, Number 8

Here's Number 8 from the Placement Gods:::::::

Placement Newsletter # 8 2015

In this issue:

1. The Placement Process
2. Reading your address
3. Early Arrival Passes
4. Planning your LNT effort
5. Health and Safety, edits
6. BMIR PSAs
7. Last call for submissions for the Remembrance Plaque


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

Hello Fine People of Black Rock City!

Last week was a big one - we announced Placement and by now you've received your email and you have questions. Hopefully this newsletter will answer many of them. For the unplaced camps, even if you are not being placed, we hope you continue to read the information in this newsletter as it is relevant to everyone camping in BRC.

This newsletter gives some details about the placement process to help you understand why some camps do not get placement and some camps get moved around.

I am going to explain how to read your address and dimensions.

This Newsletter contains a correction from the Nevada State Health and Safety folks.

We also have something from our friends at Playa Restoration - it is never too late to start planning your LNT efforts.

Finally, some information about getting your Camp into the BMIR PSA list and the Remembrance Plaque.

Thanks for all the you are doing and planning - it's July and the energy is electric - keep those lists at the ready and the smiles on your faces!


- Answergirl

PS - Want to write to us - email placement@burningman.org & please put your sector and camp name into the subject line for a faster response.

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

1. The Placement Process

The Placement team considers many things when we are laying out Black Rock City. We start by reading your questionnaire and reviewing what you write in the "described interactivity" section. This is where we get to know you and the plans for the theme camps. We think about what you are offering, how many people are in your camp, how many years you've attended the event and if we received any feedback about your camp.
Then we try to find the right spot for as many camps as possible that are offering high levels of interactivity, that are unique and new or have a great history of captivating our community.

We have areas of Black Rock City where we place Theme Camps and areas that we leave available to folks arriving when the gates open.
Some folks wonder why we move camps around; for example why would we move a camp that was on the Esplanade one year to a letter street?
The Placement Team strives to layout an engaging and dynamic city. We think about how people move around Black Rock City, how they ride their bikes and how they explore their neighbourhoods.
We think about where morning coffee should go, where afternoon snacks will get good foot traffic, and we make sure that complementary camps are near each other. We think about nighttime and how all of us are drawn to head for the lights and how to keep streets inviting and enticing. We try to accommodate what camp leads are asking for too.

While we think that on playa parties are terrific and mobile theme camps are a lot of fun, we do not consider what you are doing outside of your theme camp when we are thinking about you. We place camps based on what they are offering within the boundaries of the camp itself.

We know that some camps are well known and always draw a crowd, so we might move your off of the Esplanade to change the dynamic and give another camp a chance for front and center placement.

When we decide not to place a camp, it is usually because the described interactivity is not at the level of the other camps requesting placement. Our expectations are very high, because what is offered by Theme Camps is incredible and gets better from year to year. Things that were great last year, might not hold up as well as other camps are increasing their offerings.

The best advice to increase your chances of placement is to give us as much detail as you possibly can about what you are offering, the days and times of your activities and tell us what sets you apart from the others. We are looking for unique offerings that will inspire all of us.

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

2. How to read your address

The You've Been Placed email states your camp is 100 x 150 and your address is time on the clock and street name, or street name and time on the clock.

Or you are in a plaza or center camp and your address is street name @ time on the clock.

Help!!
First - dimensions: the first number is your frontage and the second number is your depth. If you have a + or - sign, that means your shape is a not a square or rectangle and your placer can help with the details.

Second your address. The first street listed is where we consider your frontage. If the first street of your address is a number, that means you have frontage on a time avenue. If your first street is a letter street, you are probably mid-block.

If you are in a plaza or Center Camp, your address will contain the @ sign - and that means you are on a circular part of the city. We've told you what time on the smaller plaza clock face you are closest to, with towards the Man being 12:00.


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

3. Early Arrival Passes

Early Arrival Passes are required for everyone entering Black Rock City before the gates officially open.

The Placement team gives Early Arrival Passes to placed Theme Camps only. All other Placed Camps receive their EA passes from either their Department managers, the Art Department, the DMV or the Container program.

The Placement Team only issues Early Arrival passes for up until Saturday before the gates open. We need your camp to be in your reserved camping spot by Saturday. The gates open on Sunday morning and we cannot hold your space when that happens.

Early Arrival passes are offered to people who are building Black Rock City. The time before the gates open is a time to work. Burning Man is the time to play.

If you are a theme camp, your placer(s) may reach out to confirm the number of EA passes required. You can only make edits or requests for additional passes until August 1. No last minute requests will be accepted.

Early Arrival passes are not a commodity and any selling or trading or offering in exchange for anything is frowned upon. We can cancel your EA passes if we think you are using them for anything other than getting people within your camp into Black Rock City to set up your camp.


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

4. Planning and Documenting your LNT effort

After the MOOP map is published each year, a few people ask for details about the yellow or red marks that appeared in their camps. Our friends in Playa Restoration give us as much detail as possible about what they found, and we share it with you if you ask.

We know that strange things happen on an empty playa after the event is over and we know that sometime MOOP shows up that does not belong to you.
What can you do about MOOP that is deposited in your space after you have left the playa? Unfortunately, not that much, but you can be proactive about leaving your site spotless.

Start by Documenting your Clean up effort

Keep track of the following information:

How big was your camp? How many participated in line-sweeps?
Describe your clean up - how many people, what day, what time of day, what did you find.

Describe everything that was found or happened during the line sweep.
• write down the things they found in camp - during line sweeps
• take pictures of each direction - that their camp spot was clean - take a 360 showing there was not anything in the site when you left - if you have GPS - keep track of that too

Be thorough - be as thorough as the Playa Restoration Team

The Playa Resto team marks the red xs - so they know what and where they found abandoned materials. Big things are the Xs - Evaporation ponds, carpeting, trash bags, coolers, vats of urine.

The MOOP map starts a conversation - it is not a punitive measure, it is a process for feedback. We all want the entire city to be green - and we want everyone working together to achieve this.

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

5. HEALTH DEPARTMENT: FOOD PERMITS & DEADLINES

Please disregard the Health Department information from Newsletter #7 - the following information is correct.

In order to fight the threat of food-borne illness on the playa, the Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (NDPBH) has requirements for camps serving food or beverages including the need of a health permit and an inspection. You must apply to the NDPBH and be permitted as a Temporary Food Establishment if:

* You wish to share, cook or serve food or non-alcoholic beverages to the general Burning Man population (gifting food).

* You will be cooking or serving food to more than 125* FELLOW CAMPERS in your (theme) camp.

(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 NDPBH website's information).


PERMIT APPLICATION:

If you are planning to prepare and give away food or drinks to the public on the playa including fresh squeezed juice, coffee with dairy, or even snow cones, you need a permit. Here's the scoop:

The only application any camp needs is the "Burning Man Temporary Food Establishment Application" found here:

Nevada State Health Division or Temporary Food Establishments at Special Events - Forms

Look for the "Burning Man" header towards the middle of the website for this application and other food safety information and guidelines regarding Burning Man.

DEADLINES:

Via Mail: Applications must be received by AUGUST 16, 2015
Mailing Address:
NDPBH – EHS
475 West Haskell Street, Suite 38
Winnemucca, NV 89445.

In person: No later than FRIDAY, AUGUST 21st
Office Locations: 4150 Technology Way, Suite 100, Carson City, NV. Phone: (775) 687-7550 or
475 West Haskell Street, Suite 38, Winnemucca, NV. Phone (775) 623-6588.

Don't wait until the last minute. It would be a shame to have to cancel your plans.


PICKING UP THE PERMIT:
Once your application is approved, you will receive written notification of approval. However, you must pick up the permit at the event.
You will need to pick up the food permit at Playa Info in Center Camp during the following days:

SATURDAY, AUGUST 29TH THROUGH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 3RD FROM 1:00 -2:30 PM
We will also provide early-extended hours- SUNDAY, THE 30TH AND MONDAY, THE 31ST FROM 11:30 AM – 2:30 PM

We do this so that we can get an accurate camp location from which to do inspections. We are NOT issuing new permits at Playa Info.

IMPORTANT: LAST YEAR A NUMBER OF CAMPS DID NOT PICK UP THEIR PERMIT AT PLAYA INFO AND COULD NOT BE LOCATED FOR INSPECTION. PLEASE NOTE THAT NOT HAVING YOUR ACTUAL PERMIT ON HAND IS THE SAME AS NOT BEING PERMITTED. DON'T BE SHUT DOWN. YOU MUST PICK UP YOUR PERMIT AND BE INSPECTED TO BE IN COMPLIANCE.

FAQ about the Application:

Event Coordinator: The event coordinator is "Burning Man."
Location: List the location of the camp using the cross-streets (i.e. 3:30 + L). If you are a placed camp, you will know your location, but if you do not have a set location, it is fine to leave the location blank.
Source: The "source" of the food is the location where you purchase your food or ingredients (i.e. the name of the grocery store).
Fee: $50 USD payment. If you are sending a check or money order from another country please be sure to account for any exchange rate and/or make the payment in USD (United States Dollars/ US currency).
Permit Information and Exemptions: Permit information and a list of exempted foods and drinks which can be served without a permit are noted in the "Information for Temporary Food Establishment Permit at Burning Man (pdf)" document on the website.

ADDITIONAL QUESTIONS: Please contact the NDPBH at (775) 623-6588 or email ekunz@health.nv.gov

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

6. BMIR (Burning Man Information Radio) PSAs (Public Service Announcements)

Now that you've been placed, it is the perfect time to record a promo announcement for your camps events and performances that will play on BMIR, 94.5 FM. - Burning Man Information Radio. BMIR is the official radio station of Burning Man and the best way to let the citizens of Black Rock City about your camp. All the details on how to record a promo and get it to them is here : http://bit.ly/1dNclSM


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

7. Last Call for Remembrance Plaque of Names of Burners Lost: 2014-2015

Each year since 1996, an anonymous Burner has created a plaque to commemorate members of our community who have passed away the previous year. This tradition honors those who have participated in creating Burning Man and affected our Burning experiences.
This is a call out to you, our community, to please let us know of any Burners lost in the last year whose names you feel should be added to this year's Remembrance Plaque.
Please send only their name, exactly as you would like to see it appear, to remembrance@burningman.org. (Please DO NOT hit reply to this newsletter to submit a name.)
Submissions must be received by July 20 to be included on this year's plaque. Submissions after the 20th will be added to next year's plaque.
Please note that the plaque is displayed at the Man Base, not the Temple, where more elaborate and personal memorials are created by participants.
May their spirits move on to the eternal playa!

Placement Newsletter #9

More oldnew info from placement. And no, haven't seen anything else from them yet.:::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::

Placement Newsletter # 9 2015

In this issue:

1. Bars on Playa
2. Trenching
3. Announcing DJ Lineups in BRC


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

Hello Fine People of Black Rock City!

Is it just me or has time suddenly sped up?
Here at Burning Man headquarters we no longer talk about how many days until the man burns, but in the back of our minds we know that great day is coming fast.

Before we gather in the dust, we have to talk about a few dos and don'ts.

So this newsletter is about trenching, bars and announcing your DJ line-ups. Thanks to all of our friends in other departments for their contributions to this newsletter.

Also, some of you are writing in asking about Vehicle Passes. Our friends with Ticketing say "For those who have not purchased a vehicle pass from us yet, there will be an option to register to purchase just a vehicle pass in our OMG sale later this summer— so if you got tickets but didn't get a vehicle pass in the Individual Sale, or Directed Group Sale you'll be able to register for your chance to purchase one in the OMG Sale."

What good news.

As we enter the final push of prepping and planning, I wish you all good list making and great collaborations!

- Answergirl

PS - Want to write to us - email placement@burningman.org & please put your sector and camp name into the subject line for a faster response.

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

1. BARS ON THE PLAYA

Local law enforcement would like to see us continue to address the potential issue of underage drinking at our event. Though we, the organization, are not offering alcohol to anyone and are not responsible for bars at Burning Man, there are possible consequences for camps with bars and us if we do not address this concern. Please read the following to make sure you are fully informed.

We do not believe that there are any rampant problems with underage drinking at our event that would merit investigation. Unfortunately local law enforcement does not agree with us. Therefore, you should be aware of Nevada laws on underage drinking. Here are some useful facts:

- It is a misdemeanor to serve alcoholic beverages to anyone under 21 years old in Nevada. The law still applies if the alcohol is gifted as opposed to sold. Theme camps are considered public space and subject to enforcement of this law. (NRS 202.055) In 2001 the Nevada State Supreme Court limited the application of NRS 202.055 to only servers who had actual or constructive knowledge that the person seeking the alcohol was under 21. This means that you must card someone who looks underage. Conversely, if someone looks of age you are not required to card him or her.

- It is a misdemeanor for a minor to consume or possess an alcoholic beverage in a public space (e.g., theme camps, open playa, center camp, etc). (NRS 202.020)

- It is a misdemeanor for a minor to pass him or herself off as being of age. (NRS 202.040)

- Misdemeanors carry the following penalties: Up to 6 months in county jail, and/or a fine up to $1,000. Alternatively, community service may be sentenced in lieu of, or in conjunction with jail time and fines. (NRS 176.087)

- If a minor loiters in a place where alcoholic beverages are consumed (besides a food establishment) then the minor could receive a fine up to $500. (NRS 202.030) Also, if the person in charge of the "tavern" allows the minor to loiter then he or she could be fined up to $500 also. (NRS 202.060)

Historically, enforcement of the laws is either done by carding the person outright, or through undercover sting operations. None of this is new and not terribly different from most other state laws.

But what can you do to #1 Avoid illegally serving minors?, #2 Avoid being cited, or #3 If cited, demonstrate the due diligence against serving minors you used when operating a bar on the playa?

1 Don't serve anyone without ID, who appears underage.
2 Ask for ID for anyone who appears underage. Learn to read it properly and determine by the date of birth if the person is old enough to drink.
3 Post "No Minors Allowed - No Minors Served" signs to discourage minors from committing a misdemeanor by loitering, requesting, or consuming alcohol at your bar.
4 Do not allow minors to loiter at your bar: ask them to leave.
5 Confer with a co-server -- get a second opinion -- when a patron appears "youthfully" over 21.
6 Work together - if you have refused to serve a patron because they do not appear to be of legal age, notify all your bar servers of your decision. There may be undercover operatives working with local law enforcement that attempt to be served more than once.

(NOTE: Federal and local law enforcement priorities differ on one or more of these issue. If you find yourself in an unfortunate encounter please get a badge number and/or name and note what agency you are dealing with. It might come in handy.)

Bottom line: NEVER, NEVER knowingly serve alcohol to a minor! It's illegal and it's not cool.

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

2. IN THE TRENCHES

As Black Rock City grows, and more camps rely on power and fuel distribution, the issue of trenching becomes more common place.

Trenching within camps is one thing - Please follow the guidelines listed below.
However Trenching across roads is NOT OKAY. Okay? Seriously.

Our temporary roads never seem to recover very well during the event, when trenching across them is followed by a week's worth of foot, bicycle, and mutant vehicle traffic.
Similarly, large Mutant Vehicles with draggable mutations could disrupt trenching, leading to all manner of dangerous conditions.
Please plan accordingly.

If you are an Esplanade Camp and need to trench across this no vehicle traffic road, you must gain the approval of the DPW Heavy Equipment Manager via your Placer on playa. We need to hear ChAos say OK before you can trench anything across the Esplanade.

Trenching/Digging Conditions (instructions to outside service providers)

Provider shall strive to minimize its impact on the playa and shall restore the playa to its original condition at the conclusion of its operations. Provider shall use good judgment to minimize playa disturbance by limiting digging and trenching to main power distribution lines running from the power source to key power distribution points, and situations where a safety hazard will be created by leaving wires exposed.

The primary intention for trenching is the burial of electrical cables. No trenching for other purposes may be completed without prior approval from the DPW Heavy Equipment Manager.
1 Maximum depth for trenches is not to exceed six inches without prior approval from the DPW Heavy Equipment Manager.
2 No trenching may be done across city streets without prior approval from the DPW Heavy Equipment Manager.
3 Power lines must be placed immediately upon completion of trenching operations, and trenches must be appropriately backfilled and compacted. No trench may remain open overnight or for an extended duration regardless of circumstance.
4 Special care should be taken to avoid the introduction of foreign matter into open trenches during both installation and removal of cables.
5 Once cables have been removed, Provider shall follow all Leave No Trace practices which include the restoration of disturbed surfaces to their original state. Provider shall fill and compact all trenches to a surface level with the surrounding area.

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

3. Announcing DJ Lineups in BRC

Dear artists, organizers and leaders who make Black Rock City what it is,

We're writing to you with a request. We want you to refrain from pre-announcing and promoting your on-playa DJ lineups, a practice that many sound camps already employ. If you absolutely must announce your lineups ahead of time, we ask that you wait until the week before the event. Here's why:

As you may be aware, the beloved Mayan Warrior Mutant Vehicle crew recently announced their DJ lineup, much like it was the lineup for an Electronic Dance Music (EDM) festival all its own. (They have since taken the lineup down from their website, which we appreciate.) We want to share with you this comment a Burner posted in response to the announcement at Resident Advisor:

"Hey, I really love Burning Man, and I really love music at Burning Man, and as a long-time Burner, I love the artistry behind your car, the sound system, and as always, the people you bring on your car to play.

But releasing a lineup like this, over a month in advance, flies right in the face of the rules and is pretty disrespectful in general. We want to avoid turning Burning Man into an EDM festival, with people hunting for lineups and timeslots. Burning Man is not an EDM festival, or even a music festival. It's something else, undefineable."

Even to someone who loves EDM enough to comment on an EDM news site, the practice of posting on-playa DJ lineups causes an upsetting sensation that there's un-Burning Man-like activity going on. We couldn't agree more — in fact, for many years, we've discretely requested that camps keep their line-ups a surprise. So yes, we feel that sensation, and we bet some of you do, too.

These kinds of promotions create notoriety in a community that doesn't necessarily share our principles, and specifically commodifies and commercializes artistic experiences. Promotion beyond Black Rock City gets especially uncomfortable when on-playa camps, Mutant Vehicles and events are connected to off-playa commercial enterprises.

Promoting lineups to a worldwide audience is not the same thing as listing an act or an event within the confines of Black Rock City, in resources like the online Playa Events Calendar or the printed WhatWhereWhen guide distributed to participants when they arrive. Those are for reaching people who are already going to be on the playa to let them know what's going on. They are not intended to build a brand on the merits of an appearance at Burning Man. It's simply unnecessary to promote beyond ticketed Burners for an experience you're giving to Black Rock City.

Burning Man is an experiment in temporary community, not a traditional festival like the others. So when our participants post splashy DJ lineups, EDM sites and forums talk about us as though we are, spreading that message far and wide. It can also add to an already painful ticket scarcity issue — we don't want to artificially drive up demand for tickets that aren't available, and the attraction of big-name DJs can also drive up the price of after-market tickets.

Burning Man doesn't have "headliners". We pride ourselves on that. Burners don't follow anyone else to Black Rock City, they go for themselves. Please understand, we don't have anything against EDM, an art form whose vibrant community has made great contributions to Burning Man for many years. But we welcome members of the EDM community to come to Burning Man for a different experience than they're used to: to fully participate in an experiment in a temporary community.

So, while we used to ask this on the downlow, we've seen enough instances in the last couple years that we feel the need to formally ask you not to announce your lineups. If you are dead-set on it, OK, but please wait until a week prior to the event before you do so. However, as surprise is great fun, and playa rumors help make things more exciting, we'd suggest that not announcing your lineup at all would be ideal. We're asking you to listen to this request, think about it, and do what's right for Burning Man culture. Thank you.

Greetings! Pink and PattyDuke managed to get 2 tickets! Yahoo!
My friend has some Czech burners that are coming over with artwork and they need a place to camp. Can we adopt them? There are 7 people and they have tents. We can bring a stove for them to use.
What do you think? The more the merrier!

Need music player for Fire Dance

Hi all. If we can come up with something to play her music on, playa daughter Angela may gift us a Fire Dance on Wednesday evening, darkish. "Just something to play it on. Something to plug a usb or a headphone jack into" is what she needs. Anybody have something that can help? The 4 track player in the Silver Dragon don't have a plug in.... Thanks!

Hi there
Just wondering if there is a process for registering for the camp at Burning Man. We have our tickets and vehicle pass but are unsure how we would join your camp!

I deciphered that she has her music, but needs a bit of amplifer to play it on. We're in for a treat if she brings the grinder. oh, I suspect she needs 110 for that. I'll ask.

Oops, little did you know, that you just did. Read our theme camp application, study the Survival Guide for 5 questions for our Wrangler to place you and come have fun. Bring some post card postage to gift to the Best Playa Post Card table; I'm not sure whether to say Canadian or US postage since it will posted at Black Rock City, NV 89412.
Potluck dinner on Wednesday at 6, followed by some type of scientific talk or unscientific talk (according who we trip up during the day) Possibly followed by a Fire Dancer. If you happen to have FRP "Fire Resistant Protective" gear, bring it to help RMB with burning his perfectly good art work out on playa. I think he's planning on burning it anyway. We'll need a dozen or more folks to help with that fun. (People seem to want to run into burning objects, don't know why.)
Hopefully, anybody joining us in our little camp will read our theme camp application and chime in here to help with the plan, study the Survival Guide and be prepared with 5 questions out of the Survival Guide in order to be placed. Even tenters or yurts.
