Update #18

The Ichthyosaur Puppet Project

3 comments

Hello friends of the Pier Group! We would like to thank you again for your contribution last year, and let you know what we are working on this year. 

Jerry Snyder, our fundraising lead and all around good guy to have around, is leading a project to make a life size wooden puppet of a 50' ichthyosaur. It's an exciting project that we are really looking forward to bringing to the Playa. I hope you will take a couple minutes to look at the video for this project, and if you are able to make a contribution of even a few dollars, we would be grateful! Also, if you could share this video with your friends, that would also be a big help!

There are just 18 days left on the Ichthyosaur Kickstarter, and we have about $3400 still to raise. If you could all put in even $10-20, it would take us over the top.

Thanks, and we look forward to seeing you on the playa!!

Update #17

The Pier Group Project for 2013

1 comment

Hola,

The Pier group has grown to the point where we have moved past piers and boats and mermaids and fish (there is nothing wrong with them, we have had lots of fun with all 4,...wait erm,...). 

We have now moved into the realm of,............. THE ICHTHYOSAUR,... wait what,... why is he using so many periods,...isn't that still water related?

Mr. Jerry Synder, of the Yerington Synders is leading a project of cult like proportions for The Pier Group. What is it, why is it here, why are people singing hymns? Why won't they just answer my questions?

Because we are trying to be mysterious, or just silly!!!

Matt/Janky, The Pier Group
