Previous years' organizing pages: ['10], ['09],['08], ['07], and ['06], which include the complete page editing history. For earlier years, see http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://rollerdisco.com (2000-2002, after that, its spam)
D's important announcement (Click here!) This is a MUST READ for everyone!
This page is for the evolution of Burning Man 2011. This year the Black Rock Roller Disco will be located on the Esplanade @ 7:30 Portal and will measure approximately 150+ x 300 feet (larger than what we had last year - 150' x 250')
Our neighbors will be ... This is a high traffic area and big time party zone, just like I like it!!! We're not on the grid.
Hello, and welcome, fellow campmates, to the Black Rock Roller Disco wiki page for camp organizing. What is a wiki, how do you use it? This a web page you can edit! Just click on the edit tab, above! Click on 'Help' on the left. (Or look at this page to understand. --Jesus (WW) --Jesus (WW) t/c 17:57, July 26, 2011 (UTC)
The purpose of this page is to help us self-organize, so we can have a great camp. Hopefully this wiki page requires less organization effort (i.e. 'leadership') than other methods, since anyone in the camp can edit the page directly, updating it with relevant info. This is intended only for people who have joined the camp. I'd prefer if folks sign in before making edits to this page. Create a login (ideally, your playa name, though I'm breaking that rule) and use it.
Returning visitors to this pageEdit
- Note the history tab, at the top of the page. Using it makes it easier to see what's changed since your last visit. I'm glad to see the page is a success! For example, here's what changed from Aug 8 to 12, 2006: http://www.bluwiki.org/index.php?title=BlackRockRollerDisco2006&diff=56180&oldid=55551
- If you're not comfortable editing the wiki (but try; it's really easy) please contact anyone who has made edits and ask for help.
- If you've enjoyed this wiki, here's another: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roller_disco
For sending messages to the camp/people you don't have contact info for. For sending messages from the playa to people who haven't arrived yet. (But consider whether the mailing list would be a better way to communicate!)
Thanks Parksideandocean / David W for the 16 new photos from the disco floor! Roller Derby, Jesus, Tim, D,.. - Here's a gallery! You can add more captions... it's a wiki!
Here we keep track of vitals for each camp member. Let's try to keep things in a consistent format:
- Start with your playa name. (optional: Pull down where it says 'Normal' and choose Heading 2.)
- Add Pay status (not authoritative).
- Your expected arrival-departure times, in MonAM (i.e. sometime Monday morning) format.
- In general, DON'T put your email address here; it'll get harvested and spammed, and we should all have each other's email addresses already; phone #'s are somewhat safer.
- Everyone's required to be responsible for making several major contributions. Examples: Being D, Arriving early to help with setup, and feed the camp once. Also helps: contributing to the bar, helping at fundraisers, providing communal equipment...
- What else should we track here? Oh, yeah, include all the major stuff you're planning to bring that you'll make available to campmates - for example, a toolbox, generator, shade, coffee maker, waffle iron, spices, stuff for providing big meals, a keg, ... Indicate how certain you are to bring the thing - e.g. definitely - count on me....planning to...considering...could be asked to bring..... No need to mention the stuff everyone needs to bring that's mentioned in the Survival Guide.
- Please add a photo of yourself. (optional; TRY- it's much easier here on the new wiki!) (If you added one last year, ask Jesus to copy it.)

Cool: adding photos to the new wiki is much easier than on the old wiki. Lots of ways to do so. Upload is easy.
2010-2011: D and Cheryl arranged storage with Iverson Ranch. $1000 per year including transport to/from our camp location. -Jesus, on-playa. -
- Storage is our biggest cost.
We can get a container, we can get a dry van trailer, and lots of pallets, or a flatbed truck.
Possibly datedcurrent (15:50, August 20, 2010 (UTC)) info:
- Black Rock Mini-Stor
61605 Highway 447 Empire, NV
5x10x9 (WxLxH) storage still runs $300/yr. ($25/mo to be precise) (but this is way too small)
- 10x20 $75/mo. ($900/yr)
- 10x15 $65/mo.
- 10x15 $65/mo.
We hate to set deadlines, but we need folks to get their $$ in so we can start buying shit in advance. August 10 is the deadline to get in your $75 contribution to the camp.
If you have a paypal account, you can send the $75 to D. online at firstname.lastname@example.org. Otherwise, send it by mail to D. Miles at 830 26th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94121.
One of our past events:
Bottom line is that we rack up a hefty sum of expenses to prepare for our fun in the playa. A group of us decided at one of our shindigs that we would again this year ask everyone who camps with us to contribute $75 to offset our expenses. This will minimize the amount of $$ we need to fundraise b/c past experience has shown that our fundraisers are a lot of work for little return.
- Our expected major expenses include:
Stuff bought in previous years. NEW FLOOR!!!
From 2 years ago :
- $ 400? gas to/from the playa for D's van and trailer and generator
- $ xx0? speakers, wires, adapters, MP3 player
- $ 400? alcohol for the bar
- $ 160? 500 BRRD buttons - printing
- $ 325? Lights (efficient ones to replace last year's power hogs)
- $ 105? Propane - 22 small canisters
- Our expected income includes:
- $1250 $75 x 45 members
Projected funds = $???
- Our actual income so far:
- $ 0.00 - 0 people have paid $75.00 each (According to this wiki)
Total income = $0
What's going upEdit
Art Car - StatusEdit
- I bought a cheap MP3 player. I'm thinking of bringing an iPad too. Need to get the hang of using an iOS DJ app, e.g. Touch DJ Evolution.
- $80 WinCE laptops - play MP3s in Windows Media Player. No moving parts?: http://cgi.ebay.com/7-Mini-Laptop-Netbook-Computer-Notebook-WIFI-WindowsCE-/130384943952?pt=Laptops_Nov05#ht_6176wt_1139
I'm also bringing up a DirecTV satellite dish. Curious to see if I can use 'em to get much better Wi-Fi reception. Hope so. I brought up a USB Wi-Fi stick and USB extension cable last year. Someone else took 'em home. :-( -Jesus
Campmates looking for or offering rides among each other. (See also: ePlaya)
Post to http://rideshare.burningman.com/ .
Jesus is looking for a ride up. I'm going up a week early.
- Neighbors: (same location; possible data source)
We're limiting the # of campers this year at xx burners. We have limited space so please be mindful of that as you make your plans - so, keep it tight! We're mapping out a layout plan that Dan posted below and folks can play with. If you plan on hauling out one of those big mother RV's, you have to sign up in advance to make sure we have the space for your big ol' butt. File:Discocamp.gif
We need tarps, carpet, and couches. (preferably light-weight)
The layout above is just the general idea, not the end all.
It's special fabric for gardens that is the shit - lets in light, but keeps out the heat.
Let's have a communal kitchen that everyone contributes to. Who would prefer to do their own thing? Anyone have special food needs? (vegetarian, etc.)
Are you bringing a meal to feed the camp? Are you bringing any kitchen equipment, condiments, spices, plates, silverware. Lets get an idea on what we are bringing to make it easier on everyone. Top section for kitchen stuff, second section for communal meals.
Considering DRY ICE? Here's a dry ice discussion thread from the ePlaya with comments from Jesus.
