Jo David posted this fun shot of the booth in full swing on Flickr. Boy that takes me back... now I can't wait for next year. Check out more of his shots from the event here. Why don't my photos ever look that good?

We're halfway thru Sunday and are in the thick of it. The Dormers have been painted with much help from Troy's talented hands. The warclub spine extensions are about done except for perhaps a bit of trimming The whole shebang has been assembled and tested open and closed.

Progress! The stand was welded this weekend... and yes it looks like it was done by a pack of marmosets, but a pack of marmosets with a grinder and black paint. Here you can see Entropy working his magic with his Harbor Freight rig. Hopefully no one will notice what a death trap it is. We still need to fix two of the feet (or redesign all 5) We have also begun the work to decorate the fabric for the umbrella. Sadly the bleach just doesn't have the effect I was hoping for so we will resort to paint. 5...
