Press Release: Burn2 - Notes from the Town Hall: Parcels, Pricing, and the Theme!
For those of you who weren't able to make it to the Town Hall meeting on the 11th of August, here's the skinny!
This year our event -- the only Burning Man Regional Event that is allowed to burn the man -- will be held from the 20th to 28th of October.
Expect to see all the events you've come accustomed to, building on the playa before the event, and even BURN2 only activities like the Skin Burn! We'll even be having some great workshops leading up to the event, including a porta potty building workshop on Sunday, the 19th of August at 5:00 p.m. SLT!
This years theme? After much discussion, we're proud to announce that the community sought to remain aligned with the theme of the big burn in Black Rock City. Out theme is Fertility!
For 2012, we are offering four regions, with 61 camp parcels for sale and an additional 34 parcels to be given away. We're also inviting four artists to the event: watch for more information on the artists we've invited soon.
We have eight art parcels we'll be giving away specifically for juried art: three 2048m parcels and five 1024m parcels. Additionally, five 1024m juried theme camps are being offered. If you want to apply for one of these, please visit the juried art and theme camp submission form at http://burn2.org/art_camp_submissions
We're very excited about parcel pricing this year. We applied over US$2,400.00 in donations to help reduce the cost of parcels. The prices for this year's Burn2 parcels is as follows:
4096m camps (with 936 prims) are L$14,000
2048m camps (with 468 prims) are L$7,000
1024m camps (with 234 prims) are L$3,500
Parcels are available RIGHT NOW in Burning Man- Deep Hole.
There is also a lottery for 17 512m camp plots. Donate L$10 to enter the lottery. Only one entry per person, please, and these parcels can not be transferred nor sold.
Finally, as always, we're always blessed with your time. If you wish to volunteer as a greeter, a guide, a translator, or other needs, Check in at the volunteer signup form at http://www.burn2.org/volunteer-signup. If you're a DJ or a live performer who is interested in performing at the event, please contact Buttermilk Panacek!

BURN2 is an extension of the Burning Man festival and community into the world of Second Life. It is an officially sanctioned Burning Man regional event, and the only virtual world event out of more than 100 real world Regional groups.
The BURN2 Team operates events year around, culminating in an annual major festival of community, art and fire in the fall - a virtual echo of Burning Man itself.
We'd like to encourage you to use the following labels and hashtags when you write about the event: Burn2, #burn2 . We will promote those tags to make it easier for people to find your content
