Woo Hoo! The time has come! I know everyone in here is eager to start signing up for shifts for Myschievia 2022, and now you can!
A few handy reminders below:
Volunteer Form is here.
Shift Spreadsheet is here.
We are still under our ticket cap for 2022 so as of right now, ART tickets are still available. You can register for up to two here.
If you registered for a CV ticket or a lottery ticket, you should have already received a link to complete your purchase. The original email stated July 5 was the deadline, but we are extending that deadline to August 15 since we are still under our cap. The link to pay should be live but email NTXB LLC if you have any issues.
Since we are under our cap, LLC will look at volunteer shift coverage September 1 and consult with safety departments to determine if we can safely offer another round of ticket sales in September. We will announce early in September and we expect to conduct it as a quick flash sale of whatever tickets are left.
We expect volunteer sign ups to go live next week, so if you missed out on a ticket, you might go ahead and sign up for your shifts. The more coverage we have, the more likely we can release more tickets!
The countdown has begun! We will see you all SOON!!
THE TEXAS TICKET FAIRY HAS BEEN ACTIVATED FOR MYSCHIEVIA 2022!
Just a few notes:
We are not affiliated with any LLC. We are a 3rd party connection site to help facilitation aftermarket ticket sales between burners seeking tickets or burners trying to sell them. No Scalping - We take this very seriously!

Hot Tip: Plan like you’re going!
It's all supply, demand & timing, right now demand is high... but closer to the event (when people might not be able to go) is when the supply side of that equation goes up. Did you know that there’s actually a percentage of a burn’s tickets that never get used? Why? It’s so sad when so many really want to go and get discouraged when it sells out or may need a lottery.
When I say plan like you’re going, I mean gather and prep your gear, fun clothes, tiaras and blinkies. Plan your days off. If you can, have a backup plan of something to do - just in case. We leave our connection window open for tickets all the way through your last ticket transfer date - just in case.
From personal experience: I can't remember which year but we were lotteried out one year and simply gave up. Boo hoo. Had FOMO bad. Found out shortly afterwards that had we bothered to network, one of our friends could have helped us the week of the event because he had to turn down 6 tickets. That sure taught me a lesson.
Volunteer for work weekends!
Put the word out on social media!
Let's get you in the gate!

If you missed our Summer Town Hall, it was a great success! Lots of snacks and drinks, theme camp info booths, new leadership announcements and -of course- we decided the theme for Myschievia 2022!
From the theme presenter, Minnie:
~We always talk about “going home”. When people arrive we say things like “welcome home” and I got to thinking about what home really means because it’s different to each and every one of us.
The dictionary defines "Home" as a place of residence, a place in which one’s domestic affections are centered, any place of refuge. It’s that last one that caught me. A place of refuge. For so many of us, Myschievia is one of the only places we feel at home.
At the heart of it, coming home is where you can be most vulnerable because you feel safe and all your senses are fed. Coming home is about you. Home is not a structure, it’s a feeling. Home is the deepest part of ourselves, it’s where we find our heart and souls.~
Do you have goosebumps? Because I have goosebumps.
What about the Effigy?
What about the effigy, you ask? We're running a bit behind schedule this year (thanks to wavering Covid guidelines) but the LLC is accepting effigy proposals. Get an idea together and send it here as soon as you can! The sooner they accept a proposal, the sooner we can get the META team together and start building.
For more information on Effigy guidelines, check out this blog post here.
Don't forget your tickets!
LOTTERY REGISTRATION CLOSES JUNE 30TH AT 11:59PM CST
Make sure you register and send in your vax info to register for your GA entry!
Did you know about art tickets? Art tickets are 100% guaranteed entry tickets until they're sold out. That means NO LOTTERY REGISTRATION. And all the proceeds from the purchase of art tickets go directly to art grants!
If you need more info on the requirements to register, the link to register, ticket costs, or art tickets, check out the ticketing page!
Whew! Lots of information but I think that covered everything for the moment. We'll be keeping you updated on new developments so keep an eye on the Myschievia Discord and Facebook pages!
You know what I miss? Summer town hall meetings....
HEY, LETS GO TO THE 2022 SUMMER TOWN HALL MEETING, YOU GUYS!
Where: NTXB Warehouse
Even when-er: Doors at noon-and-a-half, meeting starts at 1:00 PM, proposals to start and one-and-a-half
Why: 2022 Leadership introductions! Then we’re gonna see Theme/EFG/Temple proposals! Then we’re gonna vote on’em! Then we’ll have a POTLUCK and a CAMPS FAIR after the meeting! HOLY CRAP
Who: You, silly. You’re totally invited.
So, dig it: voting for Theme/EFG/Temple will be IN PERSON ONLY. If you attempt to vote somewhere other than the meeting the vote-counters will not know about it.
BRING MISTERS AND FANS: It is going to be hot, so if you have fans and/or misters you can bring them and that would be very nice of you, because of sharing. You may request one butt-smack for yourself or a third (consenting) party in return for the use of your fan(s) and/or mister(s)
POTLUCK: Everybody’s doing it, man, so you can bring something, too and somebody’s gonna be all like “oh, look at that” and then eat some of it because what you brought was food. Mmmmmm, food.
THEME CAMPS: Yo, set up and introduce your camp, your art, your events and sucker some sucker into joining your merry band of campers! Suckers.
SEE YOU GUYS THERE!

General Admission Adult and Critical Volunteer tickets: $100

First announcement is that we have updated our COVID policy for 2022. At this time, we will be requiring proof of vaccination to attend Myschievia 2022. You will be required to submit proof of vaccination, including boosters, in advance of receiving ticket confirmation in order to attend. You can view the entire policy at http://tiny.cc/ntxb-COVID2022
We will be honoring tickets purchased for the NewYearsChievia event that was canceled in January of 2022. If you purchased a ticket for that event and did not request a refund, you will be receiving an email with instructions on how to register your tickets or transfer them if you no longer wish to attend. Please be sure to check the email address you used to purchase your tickets originally. No more refunds for the NY event will be given at this time.
If you did not purchase tickets for the NY event and you qualified for a Critical Volunteer ticket from Myschievia 2019, you will qualify for a Critical Volunteer ticket for Myschievia 2022. You will be receiving an email to the email address you used to register for your volunteer shifts with instructions on how to register and purchase 2022 tickets. Critical Volunteer registration will close June 30 at 11:59PM. Any unsold tickets at that time will be released to the general admission lottery pool.
General Admission Lottery:
General Admission tickets will be handled through a lottery system this year. All participants wishing to acquire tickets for Myschievia 2022 must register in advance and submit all required documentation, including proof of COVID19 vaccination. Each lottery request is limited to 2 Adult tickets and 2 Child tickets ages 0-17. Registration will open June 4 at 11:59AM and close June 30 at 11:59PM. You will receive a confirmation email that we have received your request. If your request is selected in the Lottery on July 2, 2022, you will receive another email notification with instructions for completing your ticket purchase. You will have 72 hours to complete your purchase or your request will be voided and your ticket(s) will go to the next recipient in line. We will use a randomized selection process if requests for tickets exceed the number of tickets available. Due to the 72 hour hold time, there may be multiple batches of ticket notifications so be sure to check your emails and be on the lookout for additional announcements from NTXB LLC. The form for Lottery requests can be found here: http://tiny.cc/ntxb-ticketlottery2022
