Previous years' organizing pages: ['09],['08], ['07], and ['06], which include the complete page editing history. For earlier years, see*/ (2000-2002, after that, its spam)


This page was for the evolution of Burning Man 2010. That year the Black Rock Roller Disco was located on the Esplanade at 2:30. Black Rock Roller Disco Wiki has CURRENT YEAR info.

Our neighbors will be Disorient and the Opulent Temple. (Landmark: the Death Guild's Thunderdome). This is a high traffic area and big time party zone, just like I like it!!! This promises to be a very exciting year as it will be the 10th year for the GodFather. Our area is about 150 ft. by 250 ft., much larger than what we had last year. We're not on the grid like we have been for the past few years, but we have great generators and are prepared for everything. BRRDredadnwhitesmlr.jpg

D, shows all the edits you did after I moved the wiki. I'm not sure if there's anything I didn't move that needs moving. I just moved the intro. -Jesus

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) t/c 15:39, August 20, 2010 (UTC)


The purpose of this page is to help us self-organize, so we can have a great camp. Hopefully this wiki page will require 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

Bulletin BoardEdit

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!)

Wazup Black Rock Rollers!!!!!

I made it home with Tim and we will be loading up the van early in the morning. We are picking up 30 extra sheets of masonite to go with the 80 I already have by 7 AM Robert and Lorena will following us back.

We should be back on the playa by about 4 or 5 PM. There are still other campers coming so please be aware of our camp space needs. You are probably all out on the playa on a georgous star lit night riding the Soul Train and having a fantastic time.

Keep Rollin'

The GodFather

Main SectionEdit

Here we keep track of vitals for each camp member. Let's try to keep things in a consistent format:

  1. Start with your playa name. (optional: Pull down where it says 'Normal' and choose Heading 2.)
  1. Add Pay status (not authoritative).
  2. Your expected arrival-departure times, in MonAM (i.e. sometime Monday morning) format.
  3. 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.
  4. 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...
  5. 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.
  6. 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.)

Jesus. PAID. EARLY Arrival: Sunday (2 weeks before the temple burn).

  • Bringing: (!)
    • Kill-A-Watt electric meter so we can resolve problems like those we had last year. Repaired!
    • 10'x20' 'tent'.
    • 20'x20' 'tent' - would like to have, but don't have the room. Patrick has offered to lend his to me. ANYONE HAVE CARGO SPACE FOR IT, CONTACT ME ASAP. Daniel may have room; we're figuring it out. It's too big. Looks like this tent will NOT be making it; haven't found room.


Cool: adding photos to the new wiki is much easier than on the old wiki. Lots of ways to do so. Upload is easy.


I've been looking into storage options. Who would be interested in going in on shared storage? This would mean that at the end of the burn, you put your stuff in a storage container that's in camp. For $700, folks will take it to Gerlach, store it for the year and return it to camp the next year. ($300 for the transport and $400 for the storage). Link: (There may be cheaper options if we have less stuff or ship ourselves, but this makes the most sense, IMO ) Personally, I know I have a bunch of stuff I'd like to put in such a storage unit: my 10x20 tent. I'm betting Patrick would want to store his 20x20 tent in it. If we have to deal with the floor and skates and racks ourselves, then we'd need this. If we'd had this, we'd still have our art car! -Jesus. WaterWalker 23:03, August 18, 2010 (UTC)

D and Cheryl arranged storage with Iverson Ranch. $1000 per year including transport to/from our camp location. -Jesus, on-playa. -
Conversations indentation like this. (Use colons to get indentation or use the buttons.)
Storage is our biggest cost. If the org keeps storing the floor and skates on the ranch, we're good. If not, we aren't.


We can get a container, we can get a dry van trailer, and lots of pallets, or a flatbed truck.

Possibly dated current (15:50, August 20, 2010 (UTC)) info:
Black Rock Mini-Stor (is currently full, but call; they expect space to free up.)
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.

Upcoming EventsEdit

We hate to set deadlines, but we need folks to get their $$ in so we can start buying shit in advance. August 20 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 Otherwise, send it by mail to D. Miles at 830 26th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94121.

One of our past events: BRRDPartyfinal2010F.jpg


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. 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


Ideas: -Jesus

I'm also bringing up a USB Wi-Fi stick, USB extension cable and a DirecTV satellite dish. Curious to see if I can use 'em to get much better Wi-Fi reception. Hope so. -Jesus


Campmates looking for or offering rides among each other. (See also: ePlaya)

Jesus is looking for a ride up. I'm going up a week early. I've posted to .

Camp LayoutEdit

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.
