      Hi Tom, sorry to hear you didn't receive anything. It looks like we don't have your address for a tshirt, so please send that to me. As far as the ProLo appearing dead- we've been working to find a new spot since our Kickstarter ended. We were going to sign a lease on a great new space for July 1, 2013, and that fell through at the last minute due to our not being able to secure a long enough lease (we couldn't get the owner to guarantee that we could stay in the space longer than two years, which didn't align with our goal of really nurturing a scene in a new place). We are still actively looking at new spaces, hoping to find just the right spot. Most recently had a meeting with someone on Wednesday about a potential space that will be vacant as of fall 2014. We've also been exploring a rebranding of sorts, and/or partnerships that would allow us to really grow the educational aspect of the space. This is proving to take a lot longer than anticipated, and we've had some hurdles along the way, but in the end I feel that when the Project Lodge returns, it will be a very solid and strong venue for arts and music.

      Totally get your frustration though, Tom- I'm glad to see that you're still thinking of us and please feel free to send me a message if you want to discuss it further-- always happy to expound on this outside of the comments board.

      I also never received anything. Backed this because I think the Pro Lo was a great project, but it appears dead and I'm curious where the money raised went...

      I've personally caused $500+ in damages alone. When I get my first million I'll pay you back the rest.

      Little Red Wolf has donated because we love this space and hope it continues well into the future. When you come to give us the singing telegram we insist on providing backing instrumentals.

      Please help keep the Project Lodge around! It is a very simple space but has so much potential for art and community events and is so vital to sustaining the local music scene.
