I did not make it out to the Hammers this year, but there is some info making it's way around Facebook concerning a thief. I will post the story below:
"Torchmate’s Lincoln Experience KOH Sculpture set to be auctioned to Save the Hammers Stolen during the KOH.
A six-foot tall plate metal sculpture, which was to be auctioned to raise much-needed funds to help Save the Johnson Valley OHV Area, was stolen before it could go to auction. Torchmate CNC Cutting Systems and its parent company Lincoln Electric built the 250 lbs. steel sculpture with the help of the public during the King of the Hammers event which consisted of over 200 individual plate steel pieces cut on site at KOH featured a four foot tall steel hammer perched atop a three foot diameter steel crown. Funds raised would benefit ORBA which planned to donate 100% to the SavetheHammers.org campaign to stop the 29 Palms Base expansion."
If you guys have any info on this, please post up or message me. I will make sure to pass the info on to the appropriate people.
