Take Me to Your TARDIS

If you're unfamiliar with the Doctor Who sci-fi TV series, you might be wondering what the TARDIS at the Time Travelers Ball is all about. Doctor Who, the central character in the series, tools about the universe in a time-traveling spaceship called a TARDIS, which stands for Time And Relative Dimension In Space. Its exterior appears as a blue 1960s-era British police box--but its interior is infinite!

How did Poudre Landmarks Foundation have the good fortune to procure a TARDIS for the ball? The answer is that one of our talented board members,
Dick Spiess, had the idea of building a TARDIS to use as a prop for photos. Dick is shown here standing in front of his amazing creation at last year's ball. Dick built this dimensionally accurate reproduction based on original drawings of props used in the Doctor Who series as well as the original police call box upon which the TARDIS was based.

PLF extends heartfelt thanks to Dick for donating the TARDIS. Dick, who became involved with PLF and the Friends of the Waterworks after retiring from Poudre Fire Authority, says, "I never suspected that my desire to continue community service would have me creating a TARDIS. However, if it helps raise funds for such a worthy organization, I am glad to have had a part."

Come to the ball and have your photo taken with the TARDIS by a professional photographer. You'll have some fun supporting PLF's mission to preserve, restore, protect, and interpret the architectural and cultural heritage of the Fort Collins area--and get a cool picture of yourself as part of the deal.
