SPOTS Signs Multi-Year Deal with Burning Man LLC

April 1, 2005 - San Francisco, CA

Burning Man LLC (BMORG) has just completed 8 months of intense negotiations with SPOTS (Superior Portable Outdoor Tinkle Stations) on a multi-year contract to provide the annual Burning Man Festival with Portable Sanitation Services.  With the signing of this agreement, SPOTS  has withdrawn its pending Lawsuit against BMORG.

The Burning Man Festival is held on Bureau of Land Management property (BLM) in the Black Rock Desert, Nevada.  This baron desolate stretch of hard pan alkali dust  is located 120 miles north of Reno, Nevada. The towns of Empire and Gerlach serve as guardians of the desert region.

The Festival takes place over the last week of August 29th and ending on Labor Day September 5th.

SPOTS
based out of Reno, has been providing The Burning Man Festival with Portable Sanitation Services for the past 10 years.  "The festival has grown considerably since we first became involved"

In 1995 there were 4,000 people attending Burning Man, 10 years later, 2004 recorded 35,500 participants.  "As you can imagine we have had to increase our capacity multi-fold to accommodate an every expanding Black Rock City population", says ScottoBobScotto SPOTS CEO & Chairman of the Board.


With attendance numbers of 40,000 expected for Burning Man 2005, SPOTS was in perfect position to dictate to Burning Man LLC whatever terms it saw fit.  After the fiasco of Burning Man 2004, SPOTS was not going to be left holding the bag again.

The 400-Page agreement signed today will allow the Festival to go on a celebrate its 20th anniversary. The citizens of Black Rock City will have to abide by much stricter rules concerning Porta Potty use.  Each person arriving through the Greeter Station will be given a Key Card which they will need to use each time they enter one of the 600 Porta Potties set up in strategic areas of the Playa as well as in the towns of Gerlach & Empire.

Each Key Card will allow its holder to use any of the Porta Potties provided, but with a 2x per day Maximum use.  SPOTS will be using the latest technology to track the Potty habits of everyone who enters the gates of Black Rock City.  Violators of this policy will be subject to the fullest extent of the Law.  The Key Card MUST be returned to appropriate BMORG personnel upon leaving the event. Loss of card or failure to return Key Card will result in a $500 fine payable in Cash.  If this fine cannot be paid immediately, participants will be directed to SPOTS Reno facility where they will assist SPOTS employees in the massive cleanup effort of 600 units, which is scheduled to last 60 days.  Extra Washoe County Police & Federal agents will be on hand to monitor the overall project.

If this project works as planned, BLM plans to use the Key Card technology at all future events held on BLM land.

The contract signed today between BMORG & SPOTS is valid through the 2010 Festival.

Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
