Help requested from ZS007. Zombie numbers swelling and we need a few good men. And women. Ok, maybe not good men. Decent ones. Well, we'll settle for OK. Anyway, we're again looking for volunteers to travel to the Albany area from October 21-23 for an event happening that Friday and Saturday, as well as Sunday for cleanup.
Volunteers from last year can share some of the fun things we did last year:
Posing for photos!
Cleaning up hooker blood! (Ok, so we made that last part up, we never cleaned up the blood.)
Selling cool ZS merchandise!
Handing out ZS fliers and spreading the good word!
Decorating the prom!
Making julliened fries!
Co-marshalling the zombie walk!
Much much more!
Some possible venue changes are coming: Zombie Carnival, A fest of short films in addition to the features, new contests.
This year we're changing up some of the jobs the ZS guys did (no more checking ID cards at the door, we've got people for that) and explanding our disaster prep footprint. We're looking to co-sponsor a blood drive with the Linda theater and The American Red Cross. An option being addressed is the possibility of the Albany PD doing digital finger prints for kids and young adults for pre-halloween safety.
We'll again need help on Friday for general setup, decorating and such. Something that is being looked into is having our meals covered by a sponsor (Price Chopper, Subway), to save costs for folks. There is camping, cheap hotels, members closer to the location, etc, for shacking up for the weekend. Other stuff is available and more details will emerge as we get closer to the event.
Right now I'm just shooting for a rough estimate of how many people would be able to help on all these days or even just some.viewtopic.php?f=75&t=69572
Here's the link to last years event to give you some idea of what went on in the planning stages. We also have some info posted up on our ZS007 facebook page from the previous event.
Hope to see you there!
