1. after approving the plans design and pictures for the camp art car and getting us all to dump thousands of dollars in materials and manhours - the DMV rejected it once it got to the playa becasue it looked like what we said it would look like.
2 All the rules and regulations about propane use changed and we couldn’t get permits to do any of the flame effects or flame art we had built - even though all the other art on the playa didn’t have to follow these same rules.
3. I got the total run-around and mistreatment by the rudest women at both media mecca and playa info about getting camera tags for a art doc about our group I was working on - so I couldn't even shoot video of our own campmates.
4. and our campmates and close friends who spent half a year practicing and all the time and expense of submitting a video and choregraphing got the shaft when they cancelled the conclave.
One of these things failing is inconvenient but it can be expected at Burning Man, two failures a serious run of bad luck - but all 4 is a total wipe None of it our fault, all of it totally controllable at the org level. (as per #4 - dust storms finished at sundown at 9:00 - there was more than enough time for the conclave before they burned the man...)
So overall as a janitor - the Org gets an A
but for arts support it failed us miserably this year.
and its report card reads "DOES NOT WORK WELL WITH OTHERS"
