    That would be a bad thing. Also, it'd be a long trip from North Adams for nothing.

    ok I have some good news on the Table for the Con!!
    We will have a table at the Con and the price is absoluely free :D.

    Now this is where the fun begins.We need volunteers.We will need as many of you as possible to help with hanging posters to help advertise for the con,in such places as Comic Book shops,Video Stores,pretty much anywhere that people who would attend this con would frequent

    Now being as that alot of us live in different areas of the State,actually some of you actually live in other states, this shouldnt be a problem.We should be able to cover a pretty good area.

    Considering the guest list will not be Publicized til Aug 1st,I dont think we'll see these Posters til at least a week after that.
    We also need some flyers for the Con.I strongly encourage all of you that have some sort of experience in this to do so.I have set up a folder on the MSN group to submit your flyers.All will be look at and the best of the bunch will be used.Doesnt hurt to have more than one flyer.But in general the flyers should be about us as a group and FanForce in general.

    More info to come as I get it!!

    I am friends with a Manager of a New England Comics store. I am sure I can get him to put up some posters when the time comes.

    There's a hobby-shop in my town. I don't go to it, but I'm sure I could...also, there's an advertising area of my store that I could probably put a flyer in...

    If we have a table at the Con, does that mean we get in for free?

    BTW, hopefully by November I will have my stormtrooper armor :)

    there are tons of comic stores and bookstores with flyer space around here in RI if you want to advertise in the ocean state..

    also re: the flyers... i'm fresh out of art school so i could put my 'skillz' to use designing something. what sort of things should be included on the flyer, what should it say, etc?? if someone writes up the text i can lay it out nice nice. :)

    I'd have to say no for now,but you never know.I know these cons look for volunteers to help out with certain things so maybe if we give them a hand with that to it could be arranged.

    Yes we do!! It would be great if we could advertise this in NH and Maine also!! Somehow,someway I'll get some posters to you in RI.Hopefully you can make a meet before the Con.it would make it easier to get the posters to you,but if you cant I guess I good snail mail em to you.

    about the flyers,please do make some up.As for the text part,it basically should explain the group.I know your new so it may be tough for ya.I'll try and come up with something to help you out on it.Hopefully others will to.

    Well, I'd be able to make two days of the Con(Saturday and Sunday, though I'll have to be back in North Adams Sunday night for classes Monday...). Friday's another story. No way of helping out at the table then I'm afraid.

    We still have some time to do the flyers.The flyers will be used at the Con to help recrute new members.But it doesnt hurt to get started on the over all look of the flyer. I PM'd Rox about 3 days ago for some help with the flyers like he said.but no response yet.

    I will volunteer to work at the table.

    Good,thats what I like to hear!! When the time comes,I will be asking for voluteers to help out at the table.I think the fair way to do it is in shifts,that way those who are at the table have a chance to take in some of the Con.maybe like 2/3 hrs shifts at a time,but we'll figure out the best way to do it.

    When are you gonna get those posters Roy?

    I cant give an actually date yet,he said they would supply them at a later date.My guesstimate would be at least a week after the Guest list is to be announced.

    Well, I'd be able to make two days of the Con(Saturday and Sunday, though I'll have to be back in North Adams Sunday night for classes Monday...). Friday's another story. No way of helping out at the table then I'm afraid.

    Thats finr Eric,nobody has to do everyday of the con.But if they wanna do more than one shift,their more tham welcome to!!

    I'm already planning my travel for this thing. It's a shame there's no train service to North Adams itself...that'd be easy. But things can't be easy, can they? I don't want to bother my dad to have him drive all the way up to North Adams just to pick me up for a weekend...
