The History of AA at Black Rock City

An account by Anonymous Camp founder Ranger Dan

In 1997, there was one meeting at noon next to the Center Camp Cafe on the day of the Burn (on Sunday back then).  We were the Burning Desires group and found each other that day through a small ad in the Black Rock Gazette.  Twelve of us sat on straw bales in the blazing sun near a generator that was supposed to cover our voices.  I’m not sure how successful that theory was as we had to raise our voices above the generator.  From the shade of the Cafe, one would have seen a dozen people in a tight circle cooking in the sun and yelling “Hi Dan” in unison.  It was probably obvious what was going on.  We collected a list of e-mail addresses at the end of the meeting and stayed in contact through the year.  From that list, Anonymous Camp made it’s first appearance on the playa the next year.

Open AA Meeting Statement

This is an open meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous. We are glad you are here, especially newcomers. In keeping with our singleness of purpose and our Third Tradition which states “The only requirement for AA membership is a desire to stop drinking,” we ask that all who participate confine their discussion to their problems as they relate to alcoholism.
