We're back from the desert! Juno was amazing. Built and burned in style, no significant injuries. It was very well-received.

A second Kickstarter campaign is now live. We've had to go back in for a second round of funding to cover the expenses of transportation, panel cutting, and some other aspects of the construction that have run over budget. Please spread the word to help raise the balance.

Also, the kind folks at the gamelatron are running a fundraiser for the temple on Saturday July 28!!
