I think it was $15 per person but I may be mistaken about that. Cash only as I recall.
I am sure they made money on Bingo as the only prizes were 2 Wakarusa tickets, 2 All Good tickets, and one smaller prize which I forget what it was now, as prizes.
And I am sure the 4 tickets they gave away were comped.

Its all good though. We like bingo. Play it at the Casino a lot although we almost never win. Its a good way to gamble for an hour and know you wont lose your life savings.

This surprised me. Bingo costs money to play on the ship now? I haven't played in the last couple of years but when I did, there was no cover charge or anything, it WAS free to play. Did you need cash or was it something they charged to your ship card? How much was it to play? Sorry for all the questions, super curious :)

Glad everything worked out for you with the camping!


Ummmm... this isn't true. Bingo has always cost money to play. At least when I played on JC5, JC6, JC7 and JC8. $20 for three cards or something like that.

PS- I won tickets to Langerado on JC6 at bingo. It was the last year of Langerado at Big Cyprus. It was one of the best times of my life. I lived that shit up, yo!

damn. i was trying to let this thread drop off of page 1. it was like 2 threads away.
I was only going to bump this thread again if things go poorly again regarding these tickets.

I guess an update, since this thread is now up top again. The update is....... no update
still... waiting... to hear how / when / where i am going to get these tickets.
still wishing they had just given me the tickets on the boat.
still praying my situation does not end up like boca boscos 10KLF situation

True that! Langerado @ Big Cypress was the (.)(.)

single best festival it has ever been my honor to attend! (and I have been to a few to say the least).

I know the topic is probably as taboo around these parts as talking about our friend on JC11 who took an early more swim, but I would love love love to know what happened that they did not return the festie to Big Cypress. It is only the single best festival/grounds known to man. Why not recapture that magic?

And who do I need to mail my life savings to, to help get another jam festie at big cypress off the ground? Every time I buy a lotto ticket, my other half & I will discuss how the primary use of the funds will be to throw a massive jam fest at Big Cypress if we win.

Dear Cloud 9, please host another party at Big Cypress!


I won't talk about it but you can read about it for yo'self.

over a week out and my bags are totally packed and ready to go! Camping out of a suitcase appears easier than I thought it would be.

Got my tent.
Got my shade canopy.
Got an air mattress
Got my blankets
Got my pillows
Got some rope
Got some TP
Got a flashlight
Got some tumblers
Got my phone charger
Got some sunblock
Got some bug spray (they say it is important for Waka)
Got printouts of my flight info
Got printouts of my car rental info

There is one very important item (perhaps the most important item) which I dont have in my possession. I am told it will be waiting for me in Arkansas, and I am sure it will be. Still kind of wish it was already in my bag along with all the other items.
will report back

I'm excited :D

Bring one set of extra clothes and seal in a ziplock bag for your trip home. Nothing beats having clean clothes for your trip home after a festival. And nothing else besides putting your clothes in ziplock bags will keep them clean and fresh.

Dear Jam Cruise,

Thank you for the prize. Everything worked out. But I think in the future you should (whenever possible) give prizes out on the boat. In retrospect I would have taken $100 bar tab as a better prize over a promise of festival tickets 4+ months after the cruise. This is the first time I have ever (in my life) traveled across the country for a concert where I didnt have the tickets in hand from the moment I left the house.

When we arrived at Wakarusa, there was about 15 minutes of anxiety as we waited to see if the tickets would come thru. At first they said the list with our names on it "hadnt been turned in". Luckily I am a lawyer, and I had a print copy in my hand of every email regarding these tickets. I had also luckily emailed the head of Wakarusa ticketing a week before the festival and had a copy of that email.
After giving the emails to the guy at the counter, he left, and 5 or 10 minutes later returned with our pair of tickets. It was a relief when these were finally in our hands on May 30th. However it would have relieved a lot of anxiety if we had the tickets given to us on the boat. Just a thought.

Anyways, thanks for the prize and just wanted to let everyone know everything worked out. Thanks for everything.

BTW, nobody told us "wakarusa" is the indian word for "knee deep in mud"

lol
