2017-"Home Tweet Home"


On Saturday, January 30, 2016 the Board of Directors held a special all-day meeting ran by Design Contest Chair, Linda Cozakos, to review and discuss each Design Contest entry.  The Board narrowed down the 25 entries to 6 finalists.
The six finalists were presented to the paid membership on Thursday, February 4, 2016 who voted and ultimately picked "Home Tweet Home" (working title) as their number one choice.

The number one pick was submitted by Richard Burrow from Mission Viejo, CA.  This is Richard's second time winning the Design contest (first time was for 2013's Fantasy Trophy winning float "Deep Sea Adventure").

This entry was submitted to Pasadena Tournament of Roses for their review at the Theme Draft meeting held on Wednesday, February 10, 2016.

Approval from Pasadena Tournament of Roses was received on February 23, 2016.

Next steps...the design concept goes before our Design Committee who will work on making this black and white drawing into a colorful float.

On Saturday, February 27, 2016 the Design Committee held an open Brainstorming meeting to solicit ideas for additions, changes and other items such as animation, special effects and decoration suggestions.


These suggestions will be used by the Design Committee to come up with the final design.

The Design Committee met several times and came up with the following working drawings.  See how the design changes and different ideas are considered.
Above is the final line drawing.  From here the Decorations Committee will take over and pick the colors so the Color Rendering can be created.

On Thursday, April 21, 2016 the general membership voted to keep and make "Home Tweet Home" the official float title.

Now that the line drawing is complete and the float title has been selected, the next step is to select the float colors.  The rendering on the left is suggested colors to help the Decorations Committee start the process of selecting the final float colors.
The Decorations Committee continues to fine-tune the color selections and major decoration materials to be used on the float.
After the rendering has been finalized, the Design Committee worked on ideas that are not shown on the rendering.  Below are some of the proposed ideas
Its now mid-June and above is the final color rendering...now construction work will begin.
