Some Ticketing Tips

Just a friendly Hyperborean reminder that Ticket offers are good for 3 days before they cycle back into the system for the next people on the waitlist, that means most current offers are good until 11:59pm tomorrow night (25th).

That means you should :

1) Be checking https://tickets.tohyperborea.ca/ daily to see where you are on the waitlist or register if you haven’t yet!
2) When your ticket offer comes up, don’t wait too long! 3 days can go by before you know it.
3) Be patient, the waitlist should be moving on a daily basis now, keep your eyes peeled.
4) If you are unable to go, please release your ticket offer so the waitlist moves quicker.
5) Check your “Promotions” and  junkmail for important emails. If you add ticketing@tohyperborea.ca to your contacts to ensure you get the emails notifying you of your ticket status.6) Once you get your ticket, sign up for volunteer shifts to help make Hyperborea a better place at https://signup.tohyperborea.ca/

If you have any concerns please reach out to ticketing@tohyperborea.ca

Ticketing Update 4-23-2018

Hello Hyperboreans,

The first batch of tickets cycled at the passing of midnight last night. The current round of ticket offers are valid until 11:59:59pm on April 25th. At this point, those who have received an offer but not bought their ticket will be cycled back to the end of the waitlist, and those who are next on the waitlist will get a chance.

Also in regards to our volunteer system, we ask that you please sign up for shifts online after you have confirmed that you are buying a ticket.

Ranger Training
We are always on the lookout for more rangers!

Rangers are participants who volunteer a portion of their time to ensure the safety and well being of participants. They are not cops or security guards, or nor are they here to stop anyone from having any experience they want.  Their efforts are non-confrontational & unobtrusive. For example – they won’t stop you from climbing up that giant piece of art, but will call for help if you fall off.

If you interested in volunteering to be a Ranger for Hyperborea, being a liaise with the community, other departments and external agencies,there will be training pre-event and at the event. Please email the ranger leads at rangers@tohyperborea.ca for more information.

Volunteers
Hyperborea is run entirely by our team of amazing volunteers. The more hands we have making the festival run the better it is and we’d love you to be part of it. given the ability to select various volunteer shifts, below is a link to some descriptions around those positions.

Remember, if you volunteer 8 hours in good standing at Hyperborea, you get access to the volunteer directed sale the following year. If you have any questions or concerns please email volunteer@tohyperborea.ca

More information in regards to opportunities can be found here http://www.tohyperborea.ca/volunteer/volunteer-opportunities/

Fire
The Fire Art Safety Team is here to help participants safely bring fire art to Hyperborea. This includes fire performances, controlled burns, and flame effects. Our department is comprised of experienced artists, fire safety volunteers, and trained professionals.

Ahead of Hyperborea we are here to inform you of requirements for fire safety.
Flame effects must comply with NFPA160 and must be inspected by FAST. When you arrive at the event with a flame effect please check in with FAST for a quick inspection. If you intend to burn an art piece you are responsible for a burn plan and staffing a perimeter. In either situation you need to contact FAST at fast@tohyperborea.ca as soon as possible.

For additional information check out http://www.tohyperborea.ca/participate/fire/

Leave No Trace!

Hyperborea is a mystic and beautiful land, and it is up to each and every one of us Hyperboeans to ensure it stays that way.
 
We strive to be an effective Leave No Trace (LNT) event. There is no trash pickup at Hyperborea, so it is up to each of us to eliminate Matter Out of Place (MOOP). Whatever you bring in, you must bring out.
 
MOOP includes but is not limited to: bottles & cans, rope, debris, fruit peels, cigarette butts & ash (bring along a tin to ash and butt out), ash from fires, glitter, grey water, basically anything that wasn’t there before we arrived. Also don’t throw your MOOP in the portapotties!
 
Please bring heavy duty garbage bags (so they don’t rip in your car when packing them out). Carry a ziplock bag with you on your Hyperborea adventures so you can pick up trash you find along the way and dispose of it without having to detour to camp.
 
Last year one Hyperborean didn’t have a MOOP bag and had to carry a banana peel so long that it was given a name.
 
What are your best tips for dealing with MOOP?

Volunteer Appreciation Ticket Offer Extended

Hi there Volunteers!

We know there has been some difficulty getting used to the new ticketing system, as well as a few quirks with the implementation.  With that in mind, and to make sure that everyone who is eligible has a chance to participate, we have extended the volunteer appreciation ticket offer one week, until March 18th.

So here is what I need from all of you.  If you volunteered 8 or more hours in a recorded, official capacity last year at Hyperborea (gate, greeters, rangers, dpw, etc) and you don’t yet have a volunteer ticket keep reading.

  1. Head over to tickets.tohyperborea.ca and make sure your registration is complete.
    1. If it already was, you may have the option to purchase a ticket, it will tell you if you do
    2. If it isn’t, please complete your registration as if you were entering the lottery
  2. Once you’ve completed/verified your registration, you haven’t had the opportunity to purchase a ticket, and you completed 8 or more official volunteer hours for Hyperborea in 2017 then please fill out this form to let us know: https://goo.gl/forms/Qt5Kib0mVOBXJ2Y72

Hyperborea wouldn’t be possible without all of you, thank you so much, and I can’t wait to see you all in the fields!
