“I have commissioned the wonderful Phil Rayner to make our ship shaped fire pit. Obviously the actual amount is more than the £100 we made from the banquet. Any further donations gratefully received. PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org”

Any chance on seeing a rough design? I’m curious as to exactly how awesome this will be!
How much more money is needed?
A design was posted to the FB group. Hopefully this will work:

I think only members can see that. You might be able to download it and post it? I’d love to see the design…
It works fine for me when I’m not logged into Facebook so I’m hoping it’s ok.
That should work for you?
Is the base solid ? It appears to be.
OOOO!!! I like that!!
It’s a boat shaped dream come true.
blows off some heavy dust from the thread
Is this still being used? Do we have a communal fire pit area?
The pit was definitely commissioned and exists! I have been away from the Coast for a couple of years now though so I don’t know how often it is used these days.
Ah that’s a shame. It would be nice to see the nation all sat round together. Still. If it’s not anchored in a communal area anymore, maybe it could be again. I’ve always found fireplace gatherings the heart of campsite bonding
The fire pit suffered terribly a couple of years back - the of the legs fell off and it was practically rusted through. It has been repaired since, and it has scuttled around between the odd camp (Krakenfire had it for a while, purely on the basis of ‘if you fetch it from storage/where you saw it in Highguard, you can use it’). It doesn’t especially get used as a focal point of a communal area, but it has been used as a part of various national celebrations that have involved fire.
Ah that’s sad news. It sounds like a work of art.
Thanks for that.
I’ll add to my personal goals the communal gathering of the coast round a fire
I think the parador aspect of the coast may be why it never took off in the coast. There are a number of groups that host gatherings and the differences and competition between them, I feel, is a big part of the social fabric of the Freeborn brief.
I must have skimmed over that section. Thanks for highlighting that for me.
I can see your point and it does make a kind of sense. Hrmm. Something to think on.
