So I posted this on our Kickstarter:
Second, if you would like to share a memory from last years project, an interesting story that maybe included The Pier or maybe an idea in regards to how you would like to experience Pier 2, please post a comment on our Kickstarter and/or another public forum.
One of my favorite memories was maybe the first night of Burning Man. A handful of us were standing at the end of The Pier, practicing our hippie fishing techniques when one of the large yachts approached. Unnoticed behind them, a massive glowing red shark started circling in the water.
We all cried "Shark!!!" Calling the Yacht team into action. There was a frantic chase, each circling around each other at the end of The Pier.
One of us called out "Try to catch it" and with a flip of the wrist a beer can attached to our trusty fishing pole was flying through the air toward the mighty red shark.
That beer can landed in a small opening in the front grill of the shark car. It was like the beer can knew its mission as it wriggled deeper and deeper, getting well stuck as the shark whipped away. With a bit of quick thinking, well maybe medium thinking, we cut the line fearing we would loose the rod. We all laughed as the shark zoomed away, 30 ft of line dangling off its nose and a beer can wedge in its grill."
Thought it would be good to share here too
