Another way we are supporting Kai-Pod is by conducting a Burning Man 2013 ticket raffle, starting now!
Two of the ways we are supporting Kai-Pod are by (a) supplying Dawg with recycled/re-purposed lumber courtesy of Gifter and AMAS, and (b) providing him with States-side storage and work space thanks to Mel & Beth.
Today we took advantage of the nice weather to sort and stack with the help of Dusty Bubbles, John and Mel. Beth was watching the baby. Thank you!
We are really excited about working with Canadian artist Dawg on his 2013 Burning Man project entitled Kai-Pod. Check it out. )’(

WHERE: 8940/8970 N. Bradford St. Portland, OR 97203
We’ll be drawing the Burning Man ticket raffle winner, decorating Leaves, BBQ-ing with keg, listening to Music, and playing with Fire after dark (bring your toys, fuel provided!)
You can buy raffle tickets online at http://www.dustyvisions.org/?page_id=264 or in person at the BBQ.
Bring a chair and cup. We will be serving $2 hamburgers, hot dogs and veggie burgers (cooked on a separate veggie grill). We will also be serving $2 beers (Widmer and PBR) to people over 21. All side dishes provided by CORE members, a la pot luck. Feel free to bring some of your own.
Come out to commemorate the project’s completion, see Grow Fourth before it leaves for Black Rock City, support the Portland CORE volunteers, spend an afternoon with Regional Burners and enjoy a summer day with friends.

The winner will be drawn at Woosday, the weekly Portland burner happy hour, at 8:00 pm on Tuesday June 12, 2012 at Roadside Attraction – 1000 SE 12th Ave, Portland, OR 97214.
You do not have to be present to win.
Thank you for your support!
We launched a Kickstarter campaign for Grow Fourth today!
Our goal is to raise enough funds to purchase materials and supplies to build the central Tree effigy and Burn it down. We need guy-wire, hardware, lumber, metal, tinder and accelerants.
We are also working on a local fundraiser event where people will be invited to “Send a Leaf/Ribbon to the Playa.” We will be raffling two SOAK* tickets, two trees donated by Friends of Trees and other prizes gifted by Portland CORE team members. Later this summer, we will hold a second event to raise transportation funds, this time raffling a ticket to Burning Man!
Thank you for supporting Grow Fourth.
We have 3 months to build Grow Fourth…
Fortunately, our first build weekend was a success! We were graced with amazing Spring weather and worked with smiles on our faces. Saturday was spent in LostMachine Andy’s shop fabricating Stems. We finished two of four. Sunday we gathered to build a Seed and cut out Leaves. Everyone shared ideas and tools in an open and friendly atmosphere. Go Team!
Coming up: Fund raising and Kickstarter campaign to purchase materials for the Tree. Building and Burning mini-Tree models. Finding a CNC machine donation!
