NEW 2021 DATES!

LAUNCH DELAY ANNOUCEMENT

To our friends, family, confidantes, fellow lovers and dreamers, from the Country Club X Team,
 
Due to intergalactic events that are currently causing chaos, disarray, pandemonium, and a general brouhaha from alpha centauri all the way to the crab nebula; we are again forced to delay departure of spaceship Astrodynamica until more suitable conditions prevail.
 
That is to say, we need to push Country Club to a safer date in 2021.
 
For many of us, this is a place where we meet friends that we only see a handful of times a year, feed parts of our souls that do not have many other outlets, and expand our worlds by sharing experiences with those with whom we would otherwise not be granted company. We miss all of you, and we hope you are finding ways to stay connected despite the situation. These times are difficult, but it can be made better when we move through these times together.
 
So here we are, moving our date to spring of 2021, and we are really, _really_ looking forward to seeing you there: so long as we don't get invaded by bugbears or extragalactic extremists or whatever else the multiverse decides to up the ante with. Frankly, we would find very little surprising. Our spirits are high for a successful launch when conditions clear.
 
Your tickets are still good for our postponed date, Thursday May 27th, 2021 through Monday May 31st 2021. We can’t wait to see you at the gate and enjoy our forest escape together. As always, refunds are available to those requesting via Eventbrite.
 
While we continue this long strange trip to our launch date, Disorient has a few ways to come chill with us. We will be gathering in the Multiverse at Virtual Black Rock City 2020, as well as some online happenings. Keep an eye on our FB pages for information on how to join Disorient presents: SO GOOD, our online portal to the Disorient experience.
 
In the meantime, as we inch closer, we will be keeping you all informed on how our planning is going, volunteer, theme camp and art forms will remain open. Stay safe out there,

YOUR INVITATION

Remember to book your tickets!


Travel with us to an alternative timeline in a retro future where 1950s mainframe computers power our interplanetary colonization taking the human species to far-flung new realities. Bathe in red light and drink in the arid nights of hopeless romantics building the martian chronicles and sipping on orange colored drinks with the zippy name on everyone’s lips.

Join Disorient for year 10 of our annual journey of deep chilling, off-the-grid futurist relaxation. Country Club is a lake and lush green woodland oasis where blissful self-reliance meets massive multiplayer techno and technology participation. Explore a constantly shifting blank canvas of music, art, and performance. Country Club is a fundraiser organized by an all volunteer team. All profits are used for Disorient art creations at Burning Man.

CAMPING AREAS
Please note the designated FAMILY FRIENDLY and OPEN CAMPING and CAR CAMPING. We ask you to respect those wishing a quieter experience in the family areas. Open camping is available beyond the marked spots. Please check in at the gate with any questions and our Lady of the Manor will assist you in locating a perfect camping spot for you and your crew.
GLOW STICKS
In 2017, due to some negligent campers littering their glow sticks, glow bracelets, glow necklaces, etc, clean up was a real problem. Since then, our policy has been to ban these single use items. Please DO NOT bring them. We invite you to explore fiber optics, EL Wire and led strips to light up your night experience.
FIRES
Fires for large groups will be coordinated by Disorient production team. Personal small fires must be kept off the ground, in fire dishes, and in well-cleared areas. Extreme care must be practiced to keep from scorching the land.
DOGS
Dogs are welcome, but please be aware that the Main Stage can reach levels that are harmful to dogs’ sensitive ears. Please keep dogs away from the Main Stage area. TICKS
Ticks are part of camping in Upstate New York. Please come armed with DEET and Permethrin.
PORNJ GUARD
Pornj Guards will be on site to help maintain a safe and consensual environment for all campers. Campers behaving aggressively will be warned once. If a second intervention is necessary, offending campers will be asked to leave.

SAUNA
Use good judgement with the onsite sauna. Children under the age of 18 are not permitted to use without direct guardian supervision.
LAKE

Swimming is permitted in the lake. Please feel free to bring floats, rafts, small boats etc. There is no lifeguard on duty, children under the age of 18 are not permitted to swim without direct guardian supervision.
LEAVE NO TRACE

Country Club is a pack it in, pack it out experience. There are no trash cans onsite.
WHAT’S LNT? WHAT’S MOOP?
LNT is Leave No Trace that you were there. MOOP is Matter Out Of Place. Anything that is not natural to the Country Club grounds is MOOP. Flakes and ashes from burnt material also counts as MOOP. You take out every scrap of material you brought in. That includes all your garbage. DO NOT dispose of anything on the ground. Do a thorough MOOP sweep of your campsite before you leave.
LNT CODE OF CONDUCT
PLASTIC
Plastic disposable cups, just don’t. Bring your reusable cup.
Don’t throw plastic into fires. The fumes will make you feel funny, and not the good way.
HIDE YOUR GARBAGE BAGS
People tend to throw their garbage into whatever open trash bag is available. If you do not want to take out loads of other people’s trash, consider a tarp to cover your trash. Also, it makes it easier to separate trash from recycling.
PACKAGING
You can reduce the amount of trash you have to take out by removing any excess packaging from your supplies before you arrive at the event.
CIGARETTES
Carry a butt can. Use it. Best practice- roll your smokes so you are not leaving filters to be picked up by our rockstar Disengage Team.
LEND A HAND
Some campers will be coming via bus and cannot bring out bags of trash. Please help these people if you can. If you can’t take extra garbage out, please gift some trash bags to the Disengage Crew.
CARDBOARD
Do not burn it. It becomes a flakey mess that is impossible to clean up.
