Get to wharf early to avoid traffic.
One way to count people: look at a map the USA = 50 people. Look at a crowd. How many 50s do you see?
Another way to count people: Look at a 10 x 10 display of items. That is 100. How many 100s do you see in crowd?

)'( Last year BM Tix on Craiglist started out HIGH and ended up going at face value before the event
RELAX. You are safe enough to ASSUME you are going. Plenty folk asked for more tix than they needed to cover their friends / family / camps.
You might post a Tix ad in the WANTED section of CL 
http://sfbay.craigslist.org with fun creative text of who you are, once a week if you are bored, or try different text each time.
also List trades or OFFERS of what you will exchange in the SIGNATURE of your EMAIL
speaking of TRADES take a look at http://sfbay.craigslist.org/bar
perhaps you can ask for what you want; perhaps stop saying oh I'm fine each time a friend or stranger asks how you are doing. Instead answer that you seek a BM ticket then repeat your offers or trades. Let your friends be your angels and matchmakers. :)

Note if you offered BM $390 your ran in all 3 races. If $320 then 2 races. if $240 then only 1 race hence the % spread...

- STAY INFORMED. The latest ticket information and resources can be
found at http://tickets.burningman.com and will be disseminated
regularly on the JRS and/or the Burning Blog.

Possible interpretation of BM ticketing process (spreadsheet)
Realizing that the BM ticketing process results are a bit of a conundrum, I had a rough and ready shot at building a spreadsheet (with a glass of wine, you understand) to try to gauge the probabilities of winning tickets. With a few basic assumptions (and assuming the process worked in the same way as advertized), a few rather interesting results emerge whch seem to be about we are seeing. Of course, it would have been more predictive to do this before we had some results so I couldn't fix the assumptions (accidentally or inadvertently), but oh well!
Rough probabilities of winning a ticket at all seem to be:
If you bid $240, 14%
If you bid $320, 41%
If you bid $390, 95%
I could be quite wrong, of course. There do seem to be some results on our yahoogroups and on our facebook page "SiliconVillageBurners" that seem to correlate with this a little bit. You be the judge. More results, the spreadsheet and an explanation can be found at our new webpage http://www.siliconvillageburners.org Hope useful.
