It's a cute name, and I like the logo a lot. I entered the little contest too. My entry was "Let Freedom Swing!" lol.

I like the name too, and I think the logo is fun. It's all pretty fitting.

^ I entered the contest as well. My suggestion was "Star Spangled Swings". Maybe next time, haha.

I wonder how many people came up with the same winning name? I'm sure she wasn't the only one.

Dan started it last night, by tweeting we were in for a "Mammoth Monday." (You may have noticed he's quite fond of 1970/'80s pop culture.)
It turned into quite a fun-day, as the first pieces of Mammoth fiberglass took flight.

It all began shortly after 7:30 this morning.
This first piece is part of Mammoth's first drop.

We started with a low-to-the-ground piece.
Yes, it's all ... ahem! ... uphill from here.

Each piece of Mammoth fiberglass will be lovingly guided into place by a human while being hoisted by a mammoth crane.

Want to watch the process live? Take a look at the Mammoth ConstructionCam.
Nathan shot a video of that first piece swinging into place:
