Flipside Flame March 2017

March marches inexorably towards the Reckoning!
Several deadlines are coming up, so be sure you’re on top of them!

For more info, stay tuned to:

Remember, if you have something you’d like to contribute to the Flame or Announce, use Flipside Flame/Announce Submission page to send it in. Announce tends to be near the beginning of the month, and Flames usually get published around the middle of the month. Get me the info at least a week before then, and I’ll do my best to get your contribution included.


City Signage Wants You!  

City Signage is looking for faithful citizens to band together and create street signs!  That’s right, you named ’em, now help us label them!  City Signage helps you find your way in the dark.  You know, when you’re tired and lost and desperately trying to find home, street signs will be there for you!  Be there for them, now!

Where?  Lloyd, the Warehouse!  3106 Industrial Terrace, Austin, TX 78758

When?  Church Nights in March and April!  (Wednesdays starting around 7:00ish, unless traffic)

How?  Wear clothes that can get paint on them, show up, ask for Emily, help, and clean up after yourself!

It’s really that simple.

If we get done before the end of April, I’m sure there’s plenty of other stuff for you to do, or just visit and hang out.

Theme Camp Registration  **BEWARE THE ENDS OF MARCH**

Theme camp Registration closes at the end of March!  

That means you have to register your theme camp before then!  

Registering early helps City Planning help you find your best spot, and you are running out of time to register early.  

I’m not saying you’ll get stabbed 23 times if you don’t get your registration in, because I don’t know how many people are in your camp.  I’m guessing they’ll each want one good shot at either your abdomen or your face if they don’t get placement because you didn’t register ON TIME.   So, the number of stabbings will be the number of campers minus one (unless you believe in Seppuku, then count yourself, too).

Do you love Dallas people?

If you love Dallas people like I love Dallas people (or more, for that matter), you might be interested in going to hang out with them!

Burning Flipside is hitting the road on Sunday, March 26th, to hold a Road Show/Town Hall in Dallas!

That’s right.  Pyropolis’ people aren’t afraid of answering the tough questions, unlike some people.
If you want to help spread the love to Dallas, contact Meredith your 360 Area Facilitator:

Hello!  Ticket Lead here with a few helpful hints.

You should know by now whether or not you have a ticket.  If you KNOW you sent everything in, but your status is still PENDING and you have not received notice of a ticket, your ticket registration did not get processed.  

If this is the case, you are going to have to do a little work…

  1. Did you send it in a USPS trackable envelope?  If so, track it down.
  2. You kept your receipt, right?  Use that money order receipt and see if your money order has been cashed.  If not, cancel it and get a refund on your money order.
  3. If it was cashed/remitted, find out who, what, where, etc.
So, you have an extra ticket and you want to transfer it to someone else.   Read the instructions on your ticket emails, but know a few vital things.
  • When you log onto the Ticket Page, the little blue paper airplane icon to the right is the transfer feature
  • You have the option of changing the NAME or OWNERSHIP on the transfer page.
    Since ownership of tickets is through the email address, MAKE SURE YOU CHANGE THE EMAIL ADDRESS WHEN CHANGING OWNERSHIP OF TICKETS.

—–> If you change the name only, you still own the ticket, but it’s under someone else’s name and that causes problems.

—–> If you change the ownership, but not the name, at least the recipient can claim the ticket and change the name later.

  • The recipient will receive an email to claim the ticket.
    Follow instructions.
    Hint: copy the ID code from the .pdf to claim the ticket – it seems to work the best.
Your 2017 Ticket Lead.  (Area: Communications –> Tickets)
