THANK YOU to everyone who donated and participated in our drawing! You may recall that first prize was ONE TICKET TO BURNING MAN, and second and third prizes were MOMAFire goodie bags, which include a T-Shirt, sticker, and patch! Prizes will be distributed soon!
FIRST PRIZE: Tarek Touzi
SECOND/THIRD: Gabriel Cressy and Danielle Burt!
Information regarding our just-for-fun / playa pump-up party on August 19th will be coming soon!
Want your very own fire poofer? For $250 you can have one of the 8 poofers directly off of the MOMAFire art piece after the burn! These are 1/2″ poofers with a 1/2″ redhat solenoid valve and a 5lb expansion tank. Add a hose and fuel and you are ready to poof 15 foot flames! You will be able to build the same type of poofer at Big E’s poofer class in October or November (TBD) for $350.
Want your fire poofer AT Burning Man? You can pick it up on Thursday before the piece burns!
Contact Big E ASAP to pre-order your poofer. Act fast, we’ve already sold 2!
If you’d like to donate directly to the project to help offset our fuel cost deficit, you can send donations to Big E via paypal. Send to firstname.lastname@example.org and select “gift” as the type.
The winners of the Forgotten City ticket raffle have been drawn! The lucky grand-prize, who will receive two tickets to the Forgotten City is Peter from the drum circle!
Three other winners were chosen to receive a MOMAFire t-shirt, including Jen Crum, Nick, and a ticket with only a phone number! Those winners will be contacted and delivered shirts when the shirts are available.
A very big thank you to The Forgotten City for not only donating the tickets, but offering to match every dollar generated by the raffle! In the end the raffle generated $430 and The Forgotten City matched that AND added more, giving us $600 dollars! Total raised: $1030
So thank you again to Damian of the Forgotten City and everyone who purchased tickets and otherwise supported this project so far! Locals supporting local art! We really appreciate it!
Kickstarter campaign and a little bash coming soon!
Momafire weekly update
Construction is 98% done, only waiting for fire puffers to be finished before painting can begin. The project will be painted in water-based latex. Kickstarter campaign should be available by the first week in May, and raffle tickets so far total over 85 sold. More will be sold at Wednesday fire practice and at the Burning Man Community Town Hall meeting on Saturday. Schwag will soon be available in the form of 3-inch circular MOMAFire logo stickers. The first poofer-hardware tech interface test happened at Burning Mondays and was a great success!
