TL;DR: Quick update on 2018 plans and backer rewards.

2018

Josh and some of the flamingo crew put together a proposal to build The Temple at Burning Man 2018. The proposal included a scale model, which they dropped off at BMHQ on Tuesday. Here's a little peek:

 It would be a huge project, requiring an army of volunteers and hundreds of thousands of dollars of materials. It's also a long shot, since there's a lot of competition, so we're eagerly terrified. Grants will be announced later in December.

Rewards

Apologies to anyone who was holding their breath for backer perks, because we just missed our original November shipping goal. Fortunately the perks are coming together beautifully. Cassie finished books and they are delightful:

Please fill out your backer surveys if you haven't already, or you will not receive your rewards. Search your email for "final reminder" to find the notice from Kickstarter. Also if your shipping address changed since August, just send us a message with new info.
