Update #1

Holy Cow! Thanks!

Wow! We're so grateful for how enthusiastically everyone has responded to help us meet our goal. Frankly, we're a little verklempt:). We've just been overwhelmed by how quickly this process has moved along. We can barely keep up! We picked a modest goal and a long campaign time to make sure that we'd get across the finish line and now suddenly we've hit our goal and still have 38 days to go! Amazing! SO, I'm here to say, "Thank you thank you thank you" to all who have pledged already.

I'm also here to say, "Please pledge anyway!" to those of you who haven't yet. As I said, we picked a modest amount to shoot for because we wanted to at least cover the bare bones, but we can use all the help we can get to make the "Cave" really awesome. We'd already put $2,000 on the credit cards before the Kickstarter launch just on the clean-up, the seats, the painting, etc. So any additional funds we get means an automatic upgrade in our choice of projectors and audio equipment. It means new stairs, it means hiring someone local to hand build our fittings instead of settling for some IKEA or Craigslist crap. It means a new door on the bathroom, opening up our counter, mood lighting and sweet shag carpet. It also means better programming options.

We thought that in choosing 45 days for our campaign that we'd have more time to calculate how much we might need on top of the $4,000, but you generous backers are much more enthusiastic than we expected! So, please keep pledging. We'll give updates on how things are going as pieces of the project get put together. I really can't thank you all enough. Please stay tuned!
