First Meeting Nov 17 @ 6pm Location TBD. Discussion will be on the 2022 event. Looking for Coordinators and folks interested in helping out.
What is Fire and Ice?
-- Every year the Gateway Burners and Arch Reactor partner up and run a fundraiser in first quarter of the year. Generally it takes place in the Feb/Mar time frame depending on location availability and our proactivity in getting the event set up ;)
-- The event itself Morphs and Changes slightly every year, but generally it includes things like : Music (live & DJ) / Dancing / Alcohol / Science Demos / “Art” Auction / Food “Competition” / Fire performers / Costume Contest / other randomness such as Liquid nitrogen Ice cream
-- Both Groups evenly split the “take” from the event down the middle (after expenses), so it’s important that we pull our portion of the work. Putting in the work beforehand generally means we have a great turn out at the event. The “Arch Reactor” reason for the event is fundraising for the Awesome Grant program. In years past AR has brought in around $2000 each year, with variances each year.
Why are you reading this?
-- It’s time to start spinning up this process and we are looking for 4 or 5 people to work with a similar group from the Gateway Burners in planning the events. The responsibilities are pretty simple in that there will be several meeting, both in person and virtual, where we get all the ground work in place. IE deciding what exactly the event will be, scouting locations, planning events and all the general “grunt work” that setting up a larger event takes.
If you are looking for volunteer hours this is a great way to stockpile them.
If you are New to the group, this is a great way to dive right in.
If this isn’t for you don’t worry there are additional opportunities to assist later in the process on the day of as well

I have been absent of late though I believe I can be of help for a attraction for this years 2022 Fire and Ice. I have been whipping up a mobile manipulator robot and have made good progress wit the design and parts. I would like to see if we would be able to build and program it to serve drinks for this years event. I will fund much of the hardware though I would ask if there are members that would like to help build/program the functions needed.
