Re: First arrival videos??

Are you speaking of the animated arrival maps? Previously the maps were done by hand, however now they are automatically updated. We'll have to determine if we're able to construct an animated arrival map for 2019 at the end of the season.

Re: Want to add porches to Super Gourd round hole

While the porches were designed for the crescent entrances, you can use them on round entrances. However, you'll need to be careful as to the placement of the porches on the round entrance to make sure they attach to the gourd properly and make sure you fill in any gaps with caulking. There are inst...
