We have been presenting the Black Rock Roller Disco at Burning Man for the past 20 years!!!  For the past 2 years we have presented the roller disco at the Electric Daisy Carnival (EDC) in Las Vegas.  It is about the same size as the rink we present at Burning Man, but with one distinct difference - IT HAS OVERHEAD SHADE!!!  We are raising the funds to build a shade structure for the Black Rock Roller Disco at Burning Man 2019.   We want the rink to be as popular in the daytime as it is at night.  At EDC, they pay for all the costs.  At Burning Man, we have to make that happen.  We need your help!!!  Please donate!!!

Risks and challenges

Building shade over the roller disco will not be easy. We will have to post supports around the perimeter and lay a wire structure across the top for the shade cloth to lay upon. The shade cloth will be attached to the perimeter posts. It will lay like a giant tarp, but the wind will be able to go through the cloth making it float.
