This was for 2009 planning.  It's so last year.  You want to go to the 2010 wiki.




Welcome to PlayaGon Village




The Early Arrival passes have been issued!  There were ten (10) given to the Playagon.  A pseudo-anonymous and somewhat arbitrary distribution system has been established.  Please refer to the following Answer.


A: The Playagon has recieved a total of ten (10) Early Arrivals, which allow one (1) person to get in on August 28.  These will go to individuals with key pieces of large infrastructure which require early access in order to set up safely and sanely.  If you have tasks which require you to be in early please send a request and justification to chosenatrandom@gmail.com, who is the unenthusiastic anonymous gatekeeper to these highly sought after passes.   See the Early Arrival Coordination for more details.

Q: As an inhabitant of the Playagon can I get in early?



The PlayaGon is an infinite-dimensional hyper-inclusive synergy fusion cell for immanentizing memetic evolutionary transcendance.  Also, margaritas.

Public Interaction Space


The PlayaGon features a 25-foot diameter dome, which is the primary public interaction space for the Village How to Train for a Mud Run.  Camps and individuals can reserve time in the space for their presentations, lectures, discussions, performances, and so on.  The Dome will have a sound system, chairs, et cetera.  Participants are encouraged to bring art installations for the dome.  (See pic of the dome below)

So I am currently schedule to get to BRC around 4pm tomorrow. I likely have an early arrival pass waiting for me via my old camp so may be able to help setup (not that anyone who is setting up can read this).
