    Godfather, aka David Miles from the Bay Area, proudly holds up an award his camp won in 2011 for, “being one of the camps that most follows the principles of Burning Man and interactivity.” The rain of 2010 ruined the Roller Disco rink, so this 13th year of the desert roller rink saw an increase in size from 80-feet to 120-feet, by 60-feet, with thicker plywood as well used in the rebuild.

    If you didn't get your Burning Man tickets in the pre-sale random lottery, your next chance is now.

    The Main Sale lotto will sell 40,000 tickets, randomly this month. If you want to get in on the action, you have between Jan. 9 and Jan 22 (11:59pm PST) get enrolled in the lotto.

    According to the Burning Man ticket page, you'll need to provide them with your credit (or debit) card number, and how much you are willing to pay for a ticket. 10,000 tickets will go for $240, 15,000 for $320, and another 15,000 tickets will be sold for $390.

    Winners will be charged, and notified on or by Feb. 1.

    Burning Man officials believe this method will create an equal opportunity for participants, and cut down on ticket scalping.
