Willkommen am Checkpoint Charlie.

The Gate is often the first contact participants have with the Burner community. Gate volunteers check every vehicle entering for contraband, verify registrations, (kids and dogs, too), introduce kids to rangers, and inspect vehicles. Gate will also ensure that each participant will read & sign Release of Liability, which also mentions guidelines for personal use of video and cameras (basically, don’t – unless you get permission first)

Gate Hours:
Wednesday: Noon to Midnight
Thursday/Friday 8am to Midnight
Saturday 8am-6pm.

If the gate is closed by the time you arrive, you will be able to park in “D-lot” – where you can wait till gate opens for placement in the morning at 8:00 am. In case of emergency there will be porto potties and a “call box” at gate that you can use to reach someone, a ranger, gate lead, or event lead for help.

Greeters are the face of Saguaro Man and help form a newcomer’s first impressions. Greeters distribute dog tags, review nudity and porta potty etiquette, how to have fun rules, hand out “Who What When Where” guides and maps, and encouraging bell ringing and dirt angels. Education of the 10 principles is the biggest part of greeter duties.

We invite you to take on a shift or two at Gate/Greeters. A gate lead will meet you at the start of each shift and go over your responsibilities. Each shift will last 4 hours.
