Dubois To: Subject: [themecamps-announce] TC ANNC #6, '04/ WhatWhereWhen/ Early Arrival Remembrance Hi All, If you need to make changes to your questionnaire please do so by emailing us IMMEDIATELY at Do not call and do not use any other email addresses. Time is running out. We need all updates by July 6th. ***Please let us know if the number of members in your camp has changed. That is one of the largest determining factors for your placement. ****Do not send additional information to the address or include it on your map or clean up plan. We may very well not see it. _________________________________________ WHATWHEREWHEN SUBMISSIONS "2004 PLAYA CALENDAR -- "WhatWhereWhen" NOW ACCEPTING LISTINGS Attention Attention!

Submissions made after July 25 will likely not be included in the WhatWhereWhen. ~Spanky & the nurse" _________________________________________ EARLY ARRIVALS Do you think you have so much to accomplished to do your theme camp that you need to come early? If so you MUST let us know what your plans are and how many people need to come early. We will review every case and evaluate who can come early and how early. We will need the individual names of all people arriving early and will not let anyone in who is not listed. Why so strict? Our event is only one week long. If too many people come early we would need to extend our infra structure to cover them. This would be VERY costly and we are not prepared to do so. More importantly, if we get too many people on the playa too early we will be in violation of our permit with the Bureau of Land Management. This could result in a huge bill ($4.00 per person per day )and/or changes to our permit. The worst case scenario would be revoking our permit for next year. We are not willing to take these chances. What do you need to do to seek early access? Please email us at You must submit a request by July 12th. We will review your request and let you know our decision by July 16th. Tell us the name of your camp, why you need to come early, who needs to come early and how early you would like to come. No one will be allowed to come before August 23th . ****Please do not show up on the playa early unless you have been notified by us that you are on the early arrival list. If you are not on our list you will be turned away! __________________________________________ REMEMBRANCE PLAQUE FOR BURNERS LOST Since 1996, Burning Man has created a plaque to commemorate members of our community who have passed away. We would like to carry on this tradition and honor those who have impacted our Burning experiences and participated in making Burning Man happen. This is a call out to you, our community, to please let us know of any burners lost who you feel should be added to the Remembrance Plaque. Please send their name, exactly as you would like to see it appear, to this address: _________________________________________ Have a great 4th of July! Harley -- Harley K.
