I was chatting to my knitting friends last night (yes, I'm aware how dorky that makes me sound) about possible Brisbane zombie-themed fundraising events, and we've got some sweet ideas.
Zombie bake sale, anyone? We were thinking we'd dress as zombiefied housewives and sell corpse cakes, shortbread severed fingers, that sort of thing.
How about a (Romero) movie marathon followed by a zombie disco?
'Use your brains before the zombies eat them' trivia night sound like fun?
Maybe you'd prefer a 'let's hope they're shamblers' fun run?
Given the numbers that turned up to last years zombie walk, I think getting a zombie-march-upon-the-red-cross-building donation day happening wouldn't be that hard to achieve. And there's always the possibility of skills workshops - self defence, gardening, post-apoc clothing design, that sort of thing.
Just a few ideas, anyway.
We really ought to get this Aussie chapter ball rolling!
Awesome ideas! Also, I don't think being a member of an apocalyptic knitting circle makes you dorky - Michelle would kill me if I thought that.
I'm pretty sure she has specially sharpened titanium bug out knitting needles on her person at all times.
Keep 'em coming. Whosoever organised the last Zombie walk up your way might be worth talking to.
Besides the usual let's go to the pub ideas I came up with last time (and the "Mates Donate" thing) - locally I thought of tying into the charity outdoor film showings they do here in the grounds of the Burswood casino.
Ask them to help, make the next movies something zombie flavoured and tag in from there. We would of course need to be Chapterfied first for that to work though I'm thinking.
I don't think it will be that
hard to Chapter up. West Texas got admitted so fast I didn't even know they had applied. Look at ZS Vegas, Eerie basically got that up by himself.
We definitely need to get this train a-rollin'.
Feuer - howdy dude. I love your posts, you're a smart dude. Haha, your description of Exmouth sounds like my early childhood. No TV, Girls next door, Kangaroos everywhere, Emus in the wire and fights with boys named Chad.
Indiana - where the hell did you take your nine year old to in Canberra? I heard it was only the Porn Palaces open on public holidays in Canberra.
