"News as of 3/1/2020 - Existing FLAMEBALL orders will be temporarily delayed a few additional weeks as I deal with a temporary health issue. In addition, no new orders will be accepted for a few months. I apologize for the delay, but fully intend to be back to normal production in a few months." - Gene Zapsky
