Thank you! 

 We did it! A huge thank you for all your support, because of you National Treasure is coming to Black Rock City! We have received donations from our local community, from across the country and the world. We are invigorated by the support and excitement you have shown for our project.

 Although most of the hard work will begin when we arrive on the playa, we are busy with pre-build preparations. The custom made fire proofer that will shoot flames from the top of our structure is currently under construction. The lights, fabric skin and other materials have been ordered. We have also etched our designs into the panels. More details to come!

 National Treasure will be located 600 feet from the man at 3:15.
