    Event : SpoCon's entertainment corner during Bloomsday, May 1, 2011

    Contact Name: Heather Kelly, Cheeser

    Venue: Downtown Spokane Washington

    Event Start: 5-1-2011 8ish am - 1:30pm
    Event Website: http://www.bloomsdayrun.org/
    Expected number of attendees: >50,000




    There were about a dozen that I can remember from last year. Basically some high energy music is pumpin' while we waved, high fived, and danced for hours. Not for everyone, but you also can stay as long as you can.

    Water will be provided.

    You will also get Bloomsday volunteer shirts if you let me know what size you want in time.

    So, I know I'm going, Both Alfredo and Nathan are planning on it, who else?

    Erik! Glad you're able to be on board!

    Mason, does this mean that arrangements have been made for the music and SpoCon banner?


    EDIT: For shirts, I'll take a Medium. If Noelle is able (and I'd be willing to bet money she will) she'll want a Small.

    Yay Smudge! I'm glad you can make it!

    Alfredo:
    I do not know what the music and banner arrangements are, just that she wants a repeat of last year. I've emailed her to clarify and I'll let you know.

    Heather was wondering if we could do any skits? Of those participating, is anyone interested?

    Hmm.
    Let's see. I'll be wearing 50 pounds of armor and a mask with little-to-no visibility, carrying a VERY solid shield, and a 9ft. spear with (though fake) very pointy dual tips...
    If anyone's interested in risking a cuncussion or something worse, then, yeah, I can do a skit of some sort...
    Truth be told, I am probably best utilized JUST standing somewhere and trying to look cool.....

    Given the timing I think skits probably aren't in the cards this time. Mason if they are available, I'll take a 4 or 5x shirt. If they aren't it's all good.

    I'm debating on what garb to go in this time, (Shadow Jedi, Nerf herder/smuggler/guy with too many guns, Renn faire garb, fantasy/guy with too many blades or???) Any thoughts?

    Yeah, I didn't want to push the skit thing, but I mentioned it in case someone wanted to run with it. I think that we can put anything together on the spot anyway.

    Ok, so I screwed up and took too long to get her shirt numbers. I hope we can all be friendly and work through who really wants one and who can live without on Sunday.

    No worries on a shirt for me, not important at all.
