Clue Bar Pre Burn
As we prepare to build our camp in 2020 we need your basic information so we can plan accordingly. This form is to be completed by each member of the camp utilizing the email associated with your Burner profile.

Step one in radical self-reliance. Before you complete the form, an important question we ask of you is "Do you read your emails?" If you can easily answer this with a yes, kindly proceed further. A lot of important communications and correspondence will be coming from both the Burning Man Organization and Clue Bar Murder Mysteries camp via your email and it is important that each member take full responsibility staying abreast of these communications, responding in timely manners, and following all instructions provided. This also applies to dynamics duos, wherein one partner follows the correspondence on behalf of both, this simply does not work in conveying information that each individual campmate needs to be responsible for.

Step two in radical self-reliance. Each camp mate needs to register with Burning Man prior to completing this form at The email that you associate with your burner profile will be the only email that we will be directing communications, DGS ticket allocation (where appropriate), etc.

We also want to convey that we are upping the bar on what it takes to be a member of our camp for upcoming years. What we are asking for from each new(ish) camper is the following:

Spending more time in the camp and connecting with more members. This is how we create a community, by being willing to forgo some of the party at the burn vibe and getting to know each other better by being creatively and socially involved with the camp and organizers. Since this camp is our vacation, we want to spend it at least somewhat with people we connect with, rather than just with folks fulfilling the bare minimum required to be here. People that go above and beyond to show us that they really desire to make friends, spend quality time together, and check-in periodically to see what’s needed is the next level of who we want to join the camp.

That being said, if you can share several ways in which you can see contributing in this manner to the future of Clue Bar camp, that would help expedite the manner in which we allow folks to join. Thank you for your time, and looking forward to hearing from you!

The Ten Principles
Read them, know them, live by them.
The 10 Principles
Our community is committed to a radically participatory ethic. We believe that transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through the medium of deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play. We make the world real through actions that open the heart.
Burning Man 2020 will take place August 30 – September 7 in the Black Rock Desert in Nevada. Burning Man is not a festival! It's a city wherein almost everything that happens is created entirely by its citizens, who are active participants in the experience.
Please visit our web site to embed our Google calendar dates.
What date do you anticipate arriving?
What date do you anticipate your departure?
Clue Bar theme camp will have an all-camp mandatory meeting on Monday, August 31st. All in our camp are required to be in attendance. We will discuss expectations, efforts and our events throughout the week, detail shift and job duties, participate in a Consent workshop, and discuss the many roles of law enforcement on the playa.
Do you agree to schedule accordingly for your participation at our all-camp meeting? *
Black Rock City, Tokyo District
Leave No Trace
Our community respects the environment. We are committed to leaving no physical trace of our activities wherever we gather. We clean up after ourselves and endeavor, whenever possible, to leave such places in a better state than when we found them.
Are you planning and scheduling your departure to participate in the strike on the morning of Monday 9.7. Strike is when all camp will dismantle and pack infrastructure and decorations, load trailers and vehicles for transport, participate our all camp MOOP patrol, and participate in all restoration duties required for our campsite, prior to leaving playa? *
Radical Self-reliance
Burning Man encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.
What will you be living in? For those selected to join Clue Bar, a layout questionnaire will be provided for additional information.
Clear selection
Radical Self-expression
Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient.
Is there anything special that you plan on contributing to Clue Bar camp, based on your experience or ability? (Construction, graphic design, etc.) This includes efforts prebuild, for the build, camp activities and themes, etc. Please do not leave blank.
Burning Man is devoted to acts of gift giving. The value of a gift is unconditional. Gifting does not contemplate a return or an exchange for something of equal value.
In order to preserve the spirit of gifting, our community seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We stand ready to protect our culture from such exploitation. We resist the substitution of consumption for participatory experience.
Do you have any resources to contribute towards the creation of camp (sound system, lighting, power, etc.)
Radical Inclusion
Anyone may be a part of Burning Man. We welcome and respect the stranger. No prerequisites exist for participation in our community.
Do you plan on bringing a new camp mates(s) forward for consideration into Clue Bar?
If yes or maybe, is this a Virgin Burner? All Virgins must be sponsored, the sponsor is responsible to assist with acculturation and for virgin's shift(s) should they miss them. Choose responsibly. Sponsor need only have attended Burning Man in the past and presently camping with Clue Bar.
Clear selection
Name and location (Country or City/State) of candidate. Please include their email address.
If this is your first burn, who is your sponsor? All Clue Bar virgins must have a campmate sponsor.
Civic Responsibility
We value civil society. Community members who organize events should assume responsibility for public welfare and endeavor to communicate civic responsibilities to participants. They must also assume responsibility for conducting events in accordance with local, state and federal laws.
Camp Dues
Theme camps generally have camp dues. Amounts vary greatly by camps and amenities, however, we have kept ours very modest. They will increase over time as we get closer to the burn (please see the calendar on our website for details). Ours cover infrastructure, which we have acquired yet still have more to secure, solar, and sound. This also helps cover the cost of storage and transportation on and off the playa. Presently we do not have a shower system nor do we have immediate plans to build one, due to the massive costs involved in purchasing water and pumping grey water for such a system. There are camps that offer showers, for those not traveling in by RV. Our camp features a nightly camp meal which all are expected to join. Infrastructure for the kitchen for camp meals is provided, however, meals are not. Each camp member will be expected to join several others to plan, provide and prepare one meal during the week.
Immediate experience is, in many ways, the most important touchstone of value in our culture. We seek to overcome barriers that stand between us and a recognition of our inner selves, the reality of those around us, participation in society, and contact with a natural world exceeding human powers. No idea can substitute for this experience.
Communal Effort
Our community values creative cooperation and collaboration. We strive to produce, promote and protect social networks, public spaces, works of art, and methods of communication that support such interaction.
Do you agree that you are part of a team and promise not to be a diva?
If accepted, I promise to add my info to the spreadsheet in a timely manner and not keep asking What Spreadsheet?
Will you be available for pre-build activities for camp? This could be participating in construction with the lead crew or building/transporting something independently at your location.
Please describe if yes or maybe

Prior to our burn we gleefully solicit and welcome ALL of your creative concepts, input, and ideas. Once at the burn all will be directed by your Theme Camp Organizer (TCO) (also referred to as the Lead). In the event the lead is not available, all will be ran by one of the two co-leads. This includes build and strike, placement within the camp, issues or concerns within camp or interactions with neighboring camps, law enforcement or the Black Rock Rangers. Will you agree to this, and more importantly, allow us to function as intended? *
Invites, Tickets and Passes
In order for theme camps to be successful, the Burning Man Organization (Borg) provides camps in good standing a limited number of Directed Group Sale (DGS) invitations. The Directed Group Sale invites are specifically allocated to the camp they are assigned to. Tickets purchased via the invitations are not available for sale to another member outside of our camp nor are they available to another camp. DGS tickets remain the property of the camp that they are assigned to, even in the event a purchasing member might not be able to attend at a later date. In this eventuality, the holder of the ticket must sell them back to the camp or to the designee assigned by the camp lead. The DGS process is non-competitive, in that you do not need to brave the highly competitive queue of the general ticket sales in order to secure one. This process will take place in mid-February. Each recipient of an invite will be asked to purchase the maximum of two tickets and one vehicle pass (Approximately $1200) and potentially sit on the spare ticket/pass for several weeks or months until it is assigned by your camp lead. Only the camp lead can assign the ticket. Tickets not handled accordingly will be canceled by the Borg and the member banned from future sales. A vehicle pass is required for every vehicle entering the Black Rock City, they are not transferable once installed. Clue Bar theme camp asks that all members consider rideshare with another member. We are diligently working on reducing our overall carbon footprint and do not intend to support single-occupant vehicles traveling into the city. Additionally, parking is very scarce and we prefer not to have our camp resemble a used car lot. Work Arrival Passes (WAP) are provided (without cost) by placement once our camp is formally placed. Work arrival passes are to gain early entry into Burning Man expressly for the purpose of participating in build within our camp, to assist other camps, artists and other imperative activities to support the event. WAPs are expressly not to be utilized for pre-party functions as camps who do so risk not being assigned them in the future. All other tickets (Pre-Sale, Low Income, and General ticket sales are through the Burning Man organization and are highly competitive. These tickets are however property of the purchaser of the ticket and not confined by theme camp requirements set forth by the Borg. Please see their web page for complete details and dates.
Build Crew will meet in entirety on August 27th near Gerlach, Nevada in the late afternoon. We will be proceeding through the gate collectively that evening (August 28 after 12:01 a.m. ) DGS invites will be extended only to members of our build crew. Work Arrival Passes (a next step) are EXTREMELY limited and are for the build crew: leads, those hauling in imperative infrastructure which must be assembled, and for our heavy muscle who plan on working exhaustively for two solid days and nights regardless of weather conditions. No later arrival dates will be considered for build crew. Do you anticipate or hope to be a part of our build crew?
