TICKETS! TICKETS! TICKETS!

The 2019 Ticket Window is set in stone, making it difficult to see through it, but the date range is important because:

  • You have to register your ticket request on the website during this date-range, and
  • You have to mail in your completed ticket request during the same date-range. It’s the second most important date range of the event (the most important date range ends on Memorial day, if you get my drift).

You know you’re itching to know more. Check out the dates and details for your Flipside tickets here.

It’s what gets you the only FREE TICKETS to Burning Flipside!! Soon the drum beat of art will be a-pounding at your door and what will it be asking for?

TICKETS! TICKETS! TICKETS!

Hello, lovely Flipiziens! It is I, Ste. Michelle, Patron Saint of Ticket Distribution!

I am your new Ticket Lead, and I promise to bring you a kinder and gentler Ticket process!!*

The 2019 Ticket Window is set in stone, making it difficult to see through it, and more like a date range than a window, but whatever. The date range is important because:

  • You have to register your ticket request on the website during this date-range, and
  • You have to mail in your completed ticket request during the same date-range.

It’s the second most important date range of the event (the most important date range ends on Memorial day, if you get my drift).

Things to remember:
– The date range is January 7-28, 2019.
– No personal checks
– Clear your cache
– Read the instructions
– No.personal.checks.
– No, seriously, read the instructions.

If you have difficulties, and you have actually read the instructions and cleared your cache, you can email the ticket lead from the contact page: www.burningflipside.com/contact I promise to respond. With actual answers. To questions you have actually asked. I’m fancy that way.

Bonus round things to know:
– Decorating your envelope is your first chance to gift your art to the burner community. It cheers up the ticket volunteers, and I’m not saying there’s a competition, but you might just win, and never know it.
– If you decorate your envelope to the extent that it may be difficult to get to us (gluing stuff to the outside, covering up the space for the address, not buying stamps), the USPS will sell you a stamped flat-rate envelope for under $7 that will protect your art and get it to us safely.
– If you muck it up, I might be able to help. But you should let me know ASAP.

NO PERSONAL CHECKS!!!

*If you know me and the last few ticket leads, you should probably share your knowledge with other people who don’t know me at all. Muahahahahahah!

Love and Tickets,
Ste. Michelle,
Patron Saint of NO PERSONAL CHECKS!

Hey! Are you a person with opinions? Of course you are. Do you like sharing them? You’re on the Internet, so the answer to that question is doubtlessly a Yes. Give your feedback here!


Seeking Scribes for the Combustion Chamber

Austin Artistic Reconstruction, (AAR) LLC and the Combustion Chamber (CC) seek scribes for the twice monthly CC meetings. More than one scribe allows for flexibility in scheduling meeting attendance. Interested? Find out more here.


Burning Flipside Needs an Effigy!

Just as a reminder, your letter of interest is due by 11:59 pm on Nov. 25th! The city needs YOU. Submit your design for Burning Flipside’s 2019 effigy!

 

Burning Flipside needs an EFFIGY!

Burning Flipside needs an EFFIGY!

If you have a strong opinion or a grand vision about what Pyropolis should build and burn in ‘019, and you’ve got the time, crew, and plan for how to do it, now’s the time to tell us! For info on guidelines, check out: https://www.burningflipside.com/event/effigy/proposal

There will be two rounds for the effigy proposals. Read closely for all the info:

First we are calling for letters of interest. If you want to put together an effigy proposal, create a basic outline of that proposal and submit it to us. Once we have received the letters of interest, we will then begin the second round, where the interested parties will be given more information and asked to produce fully fleshed-out effigy proposals.

Your letter of interest is due by 11:59 pm on Nov. 25th! (Those who make the second round will be informed of the date their final proposals are due.)

Being a DaFT lead means you’re responsible for designing the effigy and leading the build team to create the Flipside Effigy, both during pre-event and on-site. You don’t necessarily need to be a professional engineer, architect, or carpenter. However, these skills certainly help. We suggest you seek advice from experienced builders and project leaders, should you need assistance or advice. It’s a challenge, but don’t be scared! Be a rockstar! Lead DaFT!

Don’t wait till it’s too late! The DaFT (Design and Fabrication Team) Selection Committee is here to help! Prior to the deadline, feel free to show (one or all of) us what you’ve got! Pick our brains! We’re all ex-DaFT leads, so we’ll be able to give you real insight into how to (or not to) build, delegate, lift, bolt, screw, nail, cut, ShopBot, beat-to-fit, transport, budget, burn, and otherwise DO the effigy things.

Contact us at: daft-proposal@lists.burningflipside.com

From all of us at the DSC, happy designing!

Seeking Scribes for the Combustion Chamber

Seeking Scribing Flipizens!

Austin Artistic Reconstruction, (AAR) LLC and the Combustion Chamber (CC) seek scribes for the twice monthly CC meetings. More than one scribe allows for flexibility in scheduling meeting attendance.

This is a great position for a reliable person who wants to know what’s going on with Flipside. If you can type pretty fast, have a couple of free hours on Monday nights (twice a month), love your community and have your own laptop, then this gig is for you.

The CC discusses all sorts of things–ranging from very philosophical to procedural––but all are topics relevant and necessary to the continued growth of the Flipside community. It’s always thought-provoking and friendly, no matter what.

What’s even more necessary is that we have people we can trust to record the meetings so that others may live vicariously/stay tuned in.

Relatively new to the community and want to geek out on the details? Be a Scribe.
Been around a while and want to reconnect with the goings on? Be a Scribe.

Interested? Want to know more?

email cc@lists.burningflipside.com OR
come on up to a CC meeting and see us in person!
