There is a rumor that the Gee-Gnome was spotted at the Mad Hatter's Festival last weekend. Hopefully someone captured his image on film and will post it soon!

Gnome is at Flipside!

Thanks to some of your donations and the tireless unicorn Sara Peyrot the Gee-Gnome is in Austin, Texas for the regional burn Flipside! Mucho thanks also to Amy Bunker and the Collaborations & Cross-Pollination Kickstarter campaign that helped up get the gnome tanspo'ed and fueled up. Accompanied by gnome fluffers Mills, Josh, Denise, Brother Jess, and the aforementioned Sara the Gnome will be flipping his hat to the Gnome Ranger and lighting up the hill country. It has been reported that Lambrusco has been secured but not much info after that, hopefully a coincidence and not a causality casualty. Anyway Best Wishes to Gee-Gnome and crew as the embark on this BAD IDEA!

Flipside Bound?

With your help, our Gnome may be a Texas-bound gnomad! Over memorial day at the Burning Flipside Fest in Austin, Texas The Gee-Gnome will be showing his colors with a little kickstart from you. The Flipside theme this year is "Bad Idea" and so it is! Please consider enabling us with a pledge http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1902217603/collaboration-and-cross-pollination. Will the stickers be "gnome ranger" or "gnome on the range" only time will tell, but hopefully y'all will be saying Howdy to our own Gee-Gnomious!

Success!

Great News! The word on the playa is we hit a 'Gnome-Run'. The Gnomes were well pleased with the offering of the Gee-Gnome Project and the human gee-gnome will be further developed. Our DNA was picked up for version 0.3b and at least a 30 year commitment for enhancement. Evolution can continue and we can all breath a sigh of relief and concentrate on more pressing issues, like what a robo-gnome might look like. Well there is no place like gnome and as we all dust off and straighten out the messes we leftess on the way out I would like to THANK all of YOU, loyal Gnome Fanatics and Friends who made all this craziness possible. So Thank You and the Gnomes thank you also. Stay tuned for photos and videos and possible Gee-Gnone appearances.

Gnome, gnome, and away!


The Gee-Gnome is (mostly, kinda) completely ready to go! After many long hours, much laughter, tears, beers, deaths, and births (well, those last two happened somewhere in the world), The Gee-Gnome Project has gone from a cute idea into an incredibly cute reality. In a few short hours he will begin his mystical, dusty journey to our most favorite desert. The gnomes look forward to seeing you at GnomeHQ, that being 5:00 and 200 feet out from the esplanade, all next week.

And remember, if you're having trouble finding such a cute, little project, wait until nightfall, stay real still, listen very closely, and then walk towards the giant geyser of multi-colored fire!

Drive safely! Obey the speed limits! Leave no trace! And, most importantly, have a great time on the playa!

Garden Party pics and Thanks!

Skot Kuiper's Photos of the Gee-Gnome Fundraiser are on facebook for those inclined towards the social networking. http://www.facebook.com/search/?q=gee-gnome&init=quick#/album.php?aid=96135&id=595742374

Many thanks to all that are helping get us the funds we need to bring the Gee-Gnome to the playa, fully fueled, and salted for maximum gnomastic showing! The generosity shown has been amazing, we still are running a bit short so please consider donating. The Gnomes thank YOU!

Fundraising Success!


Thank You Thank You Thank You to everyone who made it out to the Shipyard and spent some time with the Gnomies and helped up raise some cash for the project. Much fun was had and as you can see by the gnome indicator to the right we are moving out of the red. Extra special thanks for those who couldn't make it but still donated via the paypal. If you have pictures from the party please let me know and I will post them, till then this is what the gnomes have provided.

Please, Donate. Do it for the Children.

...and by children, I mean teamGnome. Who knew that Gnomes ate that much? We children certainly didn't. If you can't come to our fundraiser tomorrow, Sunday August 2nd (see blog post below), show us some love and please hit the donate button to the upper right of this page. We need to get the little gnome pointer thingy towards the green, at least that is what my accountant is telling me. Gnome donation is too small and certainly gnome donation is too large!
The Gnomes and teamGnome will be eternally grateful.

Thanks!

Fundraiser!


Garden Gnome Party at the Shipyard, Sunday August 2nd, 1 - 5 p.m.

For immediate release several weeks ago:

teamGnome and The Bay Area Gnomish-American Cultural Coalition request your presence at the First Annual Gnomish Garden Party Fundraiser to support the Gee-Gnome Project in its final push to the playa.

teamGnome will be taking a short break from our joyful frolicking toils in the sunny East Bay to have some food and drink with our friends and supporters. We will be engaging in garden party games with a gnomish and industrial twist, showing off our new aluminum foundry with molten metally goodness, and shaking it gnome style (similar to human style, except smaller and cuter). Peer behind the infrequently pieced Gnomish Aluminum Curtain into the our workshop and
learn of the secret gnomish technology and lore.

Skip Sunday Brunch and come on down to the Shipyard! We will be BBQ-ing delicious gnomish delights, both meaty and veggie, and imbibing highly alcoholic gnomish brews, the traditional spiced gin concoctions, as well as the usual, less daring, beer and wine.

This is your chance for very limited Gee-Gnome tag and swag, so bring yer gear and walk away with our logo!

Help us help the gnomes help us,
teamGnome.
