2006 THEME CAMPS & VILLAGES
Earth Guardians, Our LNT Past to the Future
We're trying to inspire you to appreciate the Black Rock environment and embrace Leave No Trace by focusing our collective artistic, technical and spiritual energy to protect our beloved playa. Hug the ground and go beyond no trace and leave positive traces (and no MOOP!) on the land. This year we're embracing our past and wondering how our traces will impact the future. We'll have a visual timeline of Black Rock, our impacts upon it and a 1950's archeological camp where you can explore the playa on your own. Join us for daily activities including: yoga, MOOPing, nature walks and restoration, hot spring patrols and LNT brainstorming. Classes, cocktail hours and many kids activities Rest by the water bar and expand your mind with our enviromental library and movies when the day's LNT activities are done.

We are a group of intergalactic time travelers, lovers, and healers here helping create a better world and further the notion that heaven is NOW! Earth Tribe manifests each year in BRC to provide a home for our people; many of whom come from different countries and cannot bring in all the essentials necessary for proper playa living. We build an indoor dome village from the ground up and from a to z. Earth Tribe does this so each camp member can fully experience the playa and find what they need spiritually, without the three dimensional distractions common to playa living.
But Earth Tribe is more than just a breezy place to lay your head ofter a long night, our village is interactive as well. In 2005, we built a public ambient dome with environmentally sound swamp cooling systems. In 2006, we intend to build a large scale, indoor community space and dance club. This will be housed inside of a large 50 ft geodesic dome and will feature: a TurboSound system, live visuals, a one watt DPSS laser system, and sacred geometry future themed decor. We also open this space to community gatherings, workshops, and rituals for the use of the space please contact us pre-playa.
We strive to be environmentally friendly by using bio diesel generators, minimizing waste output, leaving the desert in perfect condition, and creating reusable structures.
Many people from around the globe call Earth Tribe their true home. Perhaps it can be yours as well... 2006.

Easel Park is a large-scale art project. The Park consists of twelve easels which are over fourteen feet tall. Each easel holds a "canvas" which is 12 feet by 8 feet. These canvasses provide large-scale medium for artists who wish to work mural size. Some canvasses will be done prior to the event, and some during the event. Artists are encouraged to apply for painting space. The Park will also host smaller art, light shows, and has a live music stage.

Eplaya Bar Camp
Camp Description: The ePlaya Bar Camp is the physical extension of "The Bar" from the Burning Man.com ePlaya, the most prolific topic on the ePlaya. We exist as a meeting point for anyone and everyone who ever has, or ever will, drop by "The Bar" whether virtually or not. We hope to see you in the future at the Eplaya Bar on the Playa and off the Playa at the Eplaya Bar thread. We fear you may have too much fun, meet new friends and generally get addicted to the Eplaya Bar.
Full Description: Following BurningMan 2004, the ePlayan known as Tisha2 created a topic for discussion on the ePlaya called "The Bar". I think her opening lines are worth quoting here: "Well kids, I was just appreciating how much this here Eplaya is like the real playa with the witty conversation, and the mayhem, and the diverse opinions; being able to jump from one camp (thread) to another...just realized that besides the dust, there was something missing....hey! Where's my fucking drink?! SO - I take my needs into my own hands... Welcome to the Eplaya Bar! Tish the Dish, the Hostess with the Mostess at your service! She is plenty experienced (you heard me) and pretty darn hot to boot. Step right up, pull up a barstool and have a seat. The bar is fully stocked and lookee there! A hundred kegs with every beer you've ever wanted on tap! Act appropriately (as defined by you of course) and no puking! What'll it be, baby?" Now, it's true that we don't have a hundred kegs, but everything else is true! We're the physical incarnation of the virtual theme camp that our Ms Tisha dreamt up. More than that, we give you a place to come and be with those barflies you've come to know and love. We'll be recreating as much of the virtual world in the real world as is physically possible. On display, and for general use will be the bar, the NEB (never ending blanket), the megaphone, the beer, the whiskey, the stripper pole (hey I don't remember seeing that in "The Bar"), the drinks, the coffee, the people, etc, etc, ad infinitum.

Evil Space Unicorns
"The Glittery Malevolent Tome of Rainbow Blight"
In the distant year 1975, the unicorns descended upon the earth in a brilliant display of glorious mist and rainbows. Their glowing spiral rockets corkscrewed through the atmosphere from deep space, socketing themselves deep into the heart of Mount Rushmore, the valley of Golgotha, and Disneyland. The unicorns emerged and danced before the television cameras, shaking their sparkly manes and winning the hearts of all children. The children rejoiced and did anything to please the space unicorns. They braided the unicorns' manes. They fed them glittery sugarcubes. They built ray-guns. They killed their parents. Then, the evil space unicorns took over the world.
Now we, the very children who brought the unicorns to power, have grown to realize the blight the unicorns have brought upon this world. Secretly, we plot to overthrow those who led us astray, building special anti-unicorn ray-guns, and space antennas / landing strips for the other space creatures who have vowed to help us.
But, until the time comes to rise up, we must worship our evil space unicorn masters All Hail the Glory of Their Capricious Might! All Hail the Gory of Their Cuteness Spite! All Hail the Story of Their Rainbow Blight! Bow Down before their Malevolent Cuteness! The age of Reason has ended. The age of Rainbow Darkness is just beginning!
