In an effort to communicate more fully with our friends and fellow Flipizens, Announce posts will happen in the early part of the month. As described in the Email Lists page, Announce is intended to be the official channel for important communications. Big items such as Spring Town Hall, Road Shows, Work Weekends, and Theme Camp Registration dates will be covered here. All other things will be rolled into the Flipside Flame, the more casual avenue of information distribution.
To make sure your friendly neighborhood Content Lead can keep up this publication schedule, please submit items for publication in this general timeline:
Announce: Let me know by February 25th if you have things to get into the March Announce post.
Flame: Get me the details/articles/events by February 11th to make it into the February Flame post.
Spring Town Hall
Spring Town Hall is coming Saturday, February 21, 2015 starting at 12:00pm. Join us at the Flipside Warehouse, 1023 Springdale Rd. Austin, TX 78721. The business part of the meeting (announcements) will start at 2:34pm. The agenda is as follows (subject to change):
- AAR Update
- Dates announced for Work Weekends, Theme Camp Registration and Rolling Road
- Community Announcements
The Combustion Chamber is an advisory committee to the Austin Artistic Reconstruction LLC to facilitate community input & transparency for the policy-making process and organization of burn community events. They usually meet every other Monday at the Warehouse, and would love to have your input.
Head to the Work Weekends Wiki page to sign up for work weekends. They’re a fantastic way to give back to the community by preparing the land for Burning Flipside in May. Spend some time bonding with the land before the masses arrive, and share the camaraderie in the evenings while volunteering to make the whole event go!
Finalized Work Weekend Dates:
- WW I: Feb 27-Mar 1
- WW II: Mar 20-22
- WW III: Apr 10-12
- WW IV: May 1-3
Perhaps the fastest way to learn what you need to know about Burning Flipside is to have it pushed to you via email. The Email Lists page tells you how to subscribe to various email list that will help you be more informed.
Nothing about Burning Flipside would happen if it weren’t for volunteers. Volunteerism is what keeps us running year after year, and all the days in between. Check out the Volunteer page for details on what you can do. Give the gift of YOU.
Theme Camp Registration
SOOOOOON. Theme Camp Registration is not open quite yet, but will be coming soon. Keep an eye on the Theme Camp page for more details as they are available.
Want to make ART? Art that burns? Check out the Burnable Art page for details about Art Registration (which is coming soon) and some great pointers about burning your creations.
Do not be alarmed! A big change to our ticket system is that it is all will-call this year. This means that when you are ticketed in the system, you will receive an e-mail with a PDF to print out for use at Gate, and instructions for transferring tickets. You will receive a traditional paper ticket at Gate, which you can keep as a keepsake and will need in case you need to replace
your wristband or exit and re-enter the event. You will still receive a survival guide by postal mail, and you can always read the survival guide online at www.burningflipside.com/sg.
The Sticker and Ticket selection teams met February 1st to select the designs for the Burning Flipside 2015: The Wizards of Odd ticket and event sticker. The winners will be announced soon, but you’ll have to wait until you get to Gate to see the designs. Thanks to all the artists who submitted designs, and to the volunteers who helped choose the winners. Much love to Rufus and SuzyQ, our Sticket Leads, for organizing the process!
Mass Gathering Permit
The Mass Gathering Permit application has been submitted, and we expect the hearing to occur before ticketing this year. Be on the lookout for updates, and think happy thoughts about being granted a permit for another year.
