Great idea Sam. I have to admit I'm of the same mind as Mike on this one. I'm going to try to keep an open mind until I see it. I'm getting there early, so I should have time to make up my mind before the protests start happening. :) This sounds like fun - and I just ordered 2 megaphones last week!...

You should post on the Rideshare thread, and also try to contact any burner communities near you (i.e. yahoo groups).

Thanks for the link, Eric! I just took a quick look, and they seem to have lots of good stuff. Oh, and that's a great idea about the clear acryllic! BTW: After a day in the sun, while my 3"x5" 1" deep clear plastic tray of my 'personal playa', is no where near dry, It's already cracking quite nicely!

Oh man, I just thought, what if you could you the plastic resin in a dust globe, but somehow have the dust suspended around your little man figure like it was in the middle of a dust devil? Granted, you can't shake it like a snow globe, but it would be like capturing a moment int time!

That's old info.

No, they BORROWED money from other Regions and from the Project under the guise that this was a Regional event.

Nope. The cases that were recently dropped were from Texas.
