The greeters are the face of the event and form a newcomer's first impression of Black Rock City. Their mission is to orient and educate arriving citizens while spreading wit, whimsy and infectious enthusaism to carloads of people.

Greeters explain the "Don't let it hit the ground!" principle, clarify the concept of Community (Burning Man stylio), and answer all questions in offbeat yet helpful (or endearingly hostile) ways. Enlightening new and returning participants alike is a vital role.
