    Ok, this is the official Toy Drive thread for October 14th, 9am-til we drop. This is in front of the Gamestop on Wetmore/1st. Bring everyon you can. We need to advertise this as well, so Ill make up a flyer and post it on the photbucket site, so anyone can download it, and take it to some where they would be interested (like R Galaxy,Toys R Us, KB ;))

    I would like to advertise this in the Tucson Weekly bulletin board. It cost 5$ per line with a maximum of 7 lines. With the way money is right now, I can only contribute about $10. Can anyone else throw in about 5$? If so PM me and Ill send you my Paypal address, the cut off is Tuesday for anything in the next issue (before our event)

    I posted the flyer for the toy drive here:

    if anyone wants to distribute it, right click on it and save it to your computer, I think it is already sized for printing.

    very nice poster.. I printed one.. about 6x9 is the size it turned out.. I can put it on a larger sheet of construction paper and frame it for posting around town.. it will work nicely.

    good job D!!

    How many of these can we get up in the next few days!! I will commit to getting this poster to the grant and campbell bookman's and the speedway bookman's.. and I will call coffee exchange and see if the owner will allow us to post it at his business as well. Also I will ask Casa Video if we can post it there as well, obviously we can put it up at gamestop.. I am assuming Dustin is already working on that though.. what about the other gamestops?

    how about Cinnabon.. Chris.. can you post this there at Cinnabon??

    also I will check with the library.

    I don't want to duplicate asking.. so if you plan on going somewhere specific let me know and I will not go to that place.

    A couple of problems with the poster.
    1) Chewbacca's shortened name is spelled C-H-E-W-I-E
    2) Just found out yesterday from the knee doctor that I am not going to be cleared for work until October 20th. So I don't think it would be a good idea to be up on stilts before then. My employer would not find it amusing. Ergo, I need to withdraw my "costumed" presence from all TFF activities until after the 20th.

    Short version: the Wookie is "gone" until after the 20th.

    Sorry, but I had to point this out:
    The Wookiee spelled "Wookie" wrong.
    Thought it was funny especially with the new license plate.

    Yes, Mike, it is quite amusing. It is going to be even more amusing when I start "spellchecking" EVERYTHING you post from now on.:mad: [face_whistling] [face_thinking]


    Oh, when will the "fun" end..?:D :p :D

    Here's hoping this post gets where it is supposed too... I have been having problems for more than 24 hours now with posting.

    Do we have what we need for saturday's toy drive.. Dustin are you bringing tables and chairs.. and what do you need for the rest of us to bring? Jake is bringing our big rolling bucket to collect toys in, and of course water.

    If someone can bring a radio so we can have sme abckground music that would be great, or a standing fan for those wrapped in leather to avoid smelling like burnt bacon? Otherwise materials to makie some poster sized signs that say "Toy Drive" or "toy drive for TMC and UMC's kids" suff like that. Ill make one big sign, like the one at the katrina event, anyone have a long piece of canvas for a homemade banner that says toy drive? I was hoping for somrhting to be seen from the parking lot.

    I don't have any canvas.. but I will bring some poster board for making signs.. along with markers for writing. Also we will need tape to hang stuff with.. strong tape for the walls as I remember.. or it will just fall down.
