Standard Operating Procedures


Essential Gear

  • Working Shade: A small shade structure that can be easily setup by one or two people in windy conditions. This structure goes in the back of the Los Angeles truck with a generator and a cooler of water, to offer the setup crew some minimal shelter and lighting for night work, before the real work begins.

Packing and Inventory

  • Equipment such as generators, stoves, refrigerators, bars, road cases, tables, chairs, and coolers should be tagged with waterproof labels stating A) the owner's playa name, B) the owner's full real name, and C) the vehicle the equipment should return from BRC in. Reasonable attempts will be made during camp teardown to deliver equipment that has been properly labeled to the appropriate vehicle.

Personal Packing

  • Items that may end up in a public space such as the kitchen, bar, or showers should be tagged or grouped in a plastic container that is tagged with a waterproof label stating A) the owner's playa name, B) the owner's full real name, and C) the vehicle the item should return from BRC in.

  • Food to be stored in public refrigerators, freezers, or coolers should be tagged with waterproof labels stating A) the owner's playa name, and B) the owner's full real name. Note that no attempt will be made to ensure that refrigerated foods go home with their owners - they will go home in the refrigerator they were left in, and will be divided up by the camp members in the destination city. Reasonable attempts will be made during camp teardown to deliver loose items that have been properly labeled to the appropriate vehicle.

  • Every member of the camp should have a basic survival kit packed separately from their other gear, and readily accessible for when they arrive in BRC. This kit should include any gear or amenities that they might need to thrive during camp setup, assuming there is no shade, shelter, or seating in place yet. Even if you plan on arriving well after the setup crew, this is a good idea - you never know what may happen.

  • Every member who intends to use the kitchen should have a plastic container with a lid, properly tagged with their identifying info, containing any equipment, spices or other cooking supplies they are bringing for their own use. There will be a space in the kitchen for these personal supplies to be stored in between uses, and to be kept separate from the public supplies.

Camp Teardown


Loading the Trucks in BRC

  • All equipment and personal items should have been tagged with waterproof labels stating the vehicle the item should return from BRC in. As the trucks are being loaded, these labels should be a guide regarding where each item should go.

  • All food remaining in the public refrigerators at the end of the event is up for grabs. Anyone should feel free to take it as their own during loading, or to leave it where it is to return home in the refrigerator that contains it.

  • All trash bags should be loaded into the Los Angeles truck after everything else has been loaded into it. They will be dropped off before any of the other contents of the truck are unloaded.
