The application is ON

Don't loose hope about tickets yet, they seem to come available a week or so before the event. I don't believe 30k real BM goers got all those tickets in 30 minutes, seems more like some manipulation with boiler room buyers.

But, the application is ON, time is running down, here's a few questions needing verbosity in the application. I've copied the questions, we'll see if they paste.:::

Project Interactivity *This question is required.
What interactive aspects does your project include? Please check all that apply.

Singing
Spoken Word
Structures to Climb or Play On/With
Theme-Related Activities
Theme-Related Visual Effects
Water Art
Workshops
Yoga

Number of Campmates *This question is required.
How many people will be camping with you? This information helps determine how much space your camp might need. It is easier to find a space for smaller camps.

Interactivity is considered in relation to camp size. As you camp grows, your interactivty needs to increase, too.
3 to 6 campers
7 to 12 campers
13 to 18 campers
19 to 25 campers
26 to 37 campers
38 to 50 campers x
51 to 75 campers
76 to 100 campers
101 to 125 campers
126 to 150 campers
151 to 175 campers
176 to 200 campers
201 to 300 campers
301 to 350 campers
351 to 400 campers
401 to 500 campers (We advise limiting camp/village to 500 people or less If you are considering a very large camp/village, please contact placement@burningman.org for support).

Acculturation *This question is required.
Familiarizing newer Burning Man event participants to our culture and community is a vital role of Placed Camps.
How does your camp encourage Participation, teach about the 10 Principles and set expectations about what it means to be a Burner?

Please describe how your camp acculturates its members and the greater community.


Ok, your turn for some verbosity. Thanks RMB for the words for the "Interactivity" question.

BeadZ' vebosity [for what it is worth]¿ Primary day time, acculturation for first time burners, education based (it has been), found art , recycling into art (last two are my specialties). Acculturate with bestowing playa names on Virgins. ( another one of my specialties ).

Mutant car name & Camp app

Rex ('Crash', although I guess that would be a good name for me as well) and I are here in North Carolina with Tanya ('Bee Keeper') and Billie ('Punky'). Came up with a few more names for mutant vehicle. Hope a few of you enjoy, we sure did...

-Vag-en-nah (sp?) (name inspired by Michel story

-Volcanic Vag-en-nah

-Vintage Vag-en-nah (50+ yr old) (inspired by Gigi, Bee Keeper and Punky)

Also for camp application, Bee Keeper is a yoga teacher and would love to do as many dusty classes as we want for our camp. So you can put an [X] by that if you wish...

And please [X] GAMES as we are bringing 2 new ones. One is a new take on an old dog (potato sack races, wait for it and 10 Principle Trivia for Burgins in exchange for FireBall shots as they seem to generally enjoy that... if they answer wrong, they gift us a song, dance, or joke.

As for more acCULTturation, I remember lots of great verbiage from Chief Grump. Like we take in stray burners/burgins. We educate and peer pressure them to follow principles in order not to tarnish our stellar reputation with the playa police.

<3 Gigi

I received confirmation that our ticket order "situation" was approved.

Soooo, I'd like to join the Airstreameri. In addition to myself, I'll be dragging three girlfriends - 1 from AZ and 2 from MD. We're all virgin burners - and I'm hoping we can make it through the entire week.

I think the burden of readying the Silver Olive and all our gear will be on my shoulders. Though I've towed the Olive back and fourth across the country three times, she's been neglected. All the running gear is in order, but the rest of the systems have not been verified yet. Looks like I know what I'll be doing on the weekends for the next several months....

I've ready a lot of info on tips, planning and surviving the event - and have many friends who have been multiple times. But I'd like to know more about the Airstreameri camp, how I can help the camp and have a great experience with ya'll.

Laura (aka Funkill)

Not much activity here ... am I the only one excited?

Thinking about a shade structure... wondering if this could be modified for use? Material too thin? Frame too weak? No way do I want to "test" my awning in the playa conditions...

Welcome FunKi (no ill allowed out there..) We're a quiet group online, seems like we don't reinvent the camp every year anymore. One of us ain't here but somewhere in Europo, others are still working or just hiding out, some never do speak but show up and bring it. I'm so proud of RMB and Bob, they think it up, get through all the Arterie and FAST paperwork and bring something; right now they are working the way through DMV to bring something neat.
The "shade structure" is a Costco Carport I bought a couple years ago from PuppyLove in Reno, it's been very faithful at staying around in the blizzards and white outs(although we do nail it down with #5 and#6 rebar).
and now, back to working some more on the application... oh dear what I indenture everyone to do. Oh, we need someone to volunteer to do LNT contact.

Just a byline, but here's a link to last year's fun if anyone's interested. I had to look it up for some verbosity in the application http://www.airforums.com/forums/f288...-129564-5.html

a few more questions, Thanks Zep for the 2016 Camp Plan, a click and the application is sent. Now, we wait. Usually July when we hear, sometimes we'll get a clue by seeing us in the Theme Camp roster or somewhere.
Next, we'll need a bit of verbosity for the WhoWhatWhereWhyWhatfor, probably next month.

Hay CDONA, Happy New Year!
FunKi, and everybody, check out the BurningMan Survival guide, lots of good stuff for a boring springtime evening. Lots of terms like Leave No Trace and MOOP.
