BRC LLC Contract Signed

yes, the rumors are all true, team-Gnome went to the bmOrg HQ Friday and signed on the dotted line . Red Hats were worn. Courtesy beverages were consumed. We hammered out the gnomenclature and discussed all the hoopties that we will be jumping thru to get our gnomey hands on fat stacks of BM cash. Thank you Crimson and DaveX for being gentle on our first time, you really did make us feel special. But I hear you asking, "what does this mean to me, the rabid fire-gnome fan?" Well, mostly that if you go to the big dusty this summer you will get to see the geegnome firing with frightening regularity 'All-Week-Long'(tm); thanks for asking you self-centered git. Once that first check clears we will be off to market for casting supplies, so if you want to see how a 5 foot high, 350 lb almunium gnome is made, well... so do we!

The Gnome is Funded!!!

Despite some stops and starts, I can happily say that The Gee-Gnome Project will receive a grant from Burning Man! This is great! It means that the chances that our gnome will explode in a huge fiery ball have gone down dramatically, whether you like it or not. It means that we can make a more beautiful gnome. The gnomes demand it! It means that we'll have a nice, big, fat fuel budget to burn up all week long at the playa! Thank you Burning Man! I hope that you're as excited as we are!

While The Gee-Gnome Project is funded, if you have ever worked on an art piece, or gnome someone who has, you'll gnome that there is never enough money. So! You should start looking forward to a kick-ass fundraiser now. Ain't gnome party like a gnome party!

Team Gnome WTF? Dinner Party!

Team Gnome was going to have a dinner party to celebrate a couple of things, but due to the current economic climate, we had to just hang out and have fun together. It is out gnomish way. Here are a couple of pics of Team Gnome repping our hats that the lovely Margaret has made for us!
