    • In a follow up to the previously posted article. it seems like Disco Château and AEZ were both unhappy with the way it was written, but the details were confirmed by sources out of both camps. It is my duty to be supportive of our campers and our leaders, but in my capacity on this web site have called out camps in the past where there was controversy.

      The article paints us in a poor light. There were a few villagers that were really bothered by the sound from Disco Chateau. I didn’t complain, I didn’t have issue, I can sleep through most anything. However, they started the earth shaking sound at 3 am. That pissed off quite a few villagers. mostly because we talked to them many times about the late night sound level being way over the top loud. They were patient with excuses like, “its a different DJ tonight”. One villager in particular really got hot about it. Always the same attitude, “it’s Burning Man”. The Rangers kept saying, go talk to them. Basically the Rangers did nothing. Fact is, to register as a theme camp we have to agree to a set of guidelines to get placed. Sound requirements are no more than 90db. That’s the agreement they made to be placed. They violated the agreement. I don’t see it being any clearer than that. I personally feel they had a very cool idea, the camp was awesome, they tried to give a big gift to BRC, but they couldn’t have cared less about the neighbors. It was most likely only a couple people being dicks, but the camp as a whole is responsible for the public interface. It has always worked to meet the neighbors, talk about events we all plan, except this instance. – AEZ representative

      Being able to see ourselves and learn from the mistakes from others is paramount in learning to do better next time. As for Disco Château they have had a change of leadership in order to nip those issues in the past in the bud. We have to mitigate our own damages and according to AEZ the Rangers were not being effective. Talking to each other was not effective.

      In a writeup on Facebook with a camp in a similar situation, the effected camp went to the Ranger Station and pleaded to a Ranger supervisor to intercede.

      Bottom line, Placement is taking this issues seriously and we all have to comply. The difference between what happen (as the original article was written above) BAAAHS and Disco Château is the response of the two camps.

      The feedback from the article is a little one sided because AEZ chose to make a response while Disco Château declined.
