The DECOMmandments: Survival Guide & Vital Dos and Don'ts!

This is going to be our best Decompression ever, but we must do these things or there won't be one again here next year. Please PARTICIPATE in making this our best Decom ever! Read these DECOMmandments so you know what we all must do to make this a positive experience for everyone. Help save Decom!

* Come at noon to enjoy a full day of art, theme camps, performances, great people and community! * Enter at 19th and Minnesota (all other entrances are performer/artist/theme camp/art car check-in only). * Express yourself in your finest playawear and costumery * Pack a picnic for the park and warm clothing for night. * Respect our neighbors. Enter and leave the Dogpatch--our home for 7 years--very very quietly!!! * Dont park in driveways or drive on Minnesota St. * Tread lightly on our beautiful new park...no stakes, dogs must be on leashes, no fire or amplified sound, no vehicles or bikes of ANY kind in the park. Please use main entrances and do not cut through bushes, where there are new sprinkler heads hiding.

* No renegade sound systems or unauthorized fire art/fire performance. If you haven't already been confirmed for sound or fire, please leave it at home! (no exceptions)

* No drumming, loud or amplified sound after 10pm - ANYWHERE on Indiana or side streets! All theme camps must stop sound at 10 sharp! If you hear it, stop it! (this excludes Gamelan X on the Mariposa Stage performing 10pm - 11pm. They're supposed to do that!)

* Do stay from 10-Midnight to quietly talk and enjoy the art, theme camps, and our time together * LEAVE NO TRACE! Pick up any trash and help us recycle * Leave your cars home: Take mass transit or bike. There will be a Taxi Stand at the corner of 18th and Minnesota end of night and bike racks are at the corner of 19th and Minnesota.

* If you drive, carpool, avoid driving on Minnesota St., and park at UCSF Lot on 16th St. and 3rd (enter off 3rd St going South OR 16th, going East. Should be just $5-$6 all day, instead of usual $20!), park near Ballpark or on Illinois St.

* If you are an approved and placed art car or theme camp, please DO NOT DRIVE OVER ELECTRIC CABLES OR DISTRO BOXES. Please be extra careful end of night and help your neighbor exit safely!

* Note that break-down is 10pm for the park. All art and any theme camps placed there must be out by Midnight. It is 12am for everyone else.

*The Street FaIRE! Ends at Midnight. * EVERYTHING and all vehicles must be off Indiana and off 19th and 20th between Minnesota and Indiana no later than 2AM so street sweeper can come through! By 2am all sidewalks must be swept into the street and all large trash items packed out!

*** Please come back Monday, October 9th 11am-4pm for our annual neighborhood and park clean-up! We want to leave things in even BETTER shape than we found them. So, we'll start on Minnesota and 19th, move to the park, Indiana, then surrounding streets. We have a small and hearty crew, but many hands make light work. Bring gloves, brooms, shovels and plastic bags if you got 'em. We'll bring donuts and love you even more! HOORAY!!! ...And if ya can help with a community bulb planting and park service in November, e-mail Firekitty(at)burningman(dot)com now!

See you at Decom!!!...and THANK YOU for bringing the best of Burning Man to SF and for your part in creating "Black Top City"!
