Greetings all!

I am the new Street Team Leader for Kumoricon. It was great meeting many of you at the May meeting. And now it’s time to hit the streets! Below is a list of the people I saw at the meeting. I will try my best to get in touch with each of you in the following week (May 22-28, ‘06) to make sure you have the information and material you need to spread the word about Kumoricon!

•   Kyd compromise
•   mgken
•   Hellsap
•   Neco_Chan
•   Snowspell
•   Leashy
•   Haru
•   Dizzy-Kat
•   Para / ParaNexus
•   YOJIMBO - I didn’t catch your forum names, so I’ll try to contact you offline or through the Yojimbo posting.

What is Street Team? It's a team comprised of people who are willing and able to deliver fliers and posters to local businesses (comic shops, restaurants, etc.) I am putting together a checklist of other stuff you can ask at the same time, and trying to map out coverage areas so we’re all not going to the same shops.

If you have any questions, or if you would like to join the street team, please PM me or email me. I’m sure this will be a great team, and I hope that we can plan something fun at the convention to reward everyone for their hard work!

I was one of the Yojimbo who signed up to do it. Your best bet of contacting me would probably be through email or PMs here on the forums.

When Spindrift asked me to start a list of stores in Eugene I said I could take the information around town when it is ready.  But I’d rather not be called a street team, it sounds like I’m supposed to put on a trendy Japanese track suit and drop and Break dance at random times as Mini Moni wannabe college girls appear out of no wear and stop traffic with an impromptu Karaoke.

Vondan I am shocked that you would not dress up in a trendy track suit and break dance.


Everyone point and make fun of Vondan for not wanting to break dance for us

Hello -

I just sent an email to those of you who wrote yours down at the meeting.

Emails I have:

Necko.chan
snowspell(?)
Leashy
Haru
dizzy-kat
Paru

Also - please let me know where you drop stuff off (stores, clubs, libraries etc.)  I am trying to get two more bits of info for the packets (charity info and vendor table info) and we should have posters soon. If you need more fliers - let me know; remember we have a limited supply, but if you know of good places, we want to get the world out. Thanks!


P.S. Thanks for your help Vondan - you can be a Publicity Shinobi if it makes you feel better...  A breakdancing shinobi!

Go ahead and count me in, as there's a couple of really good places I can think of to drop off fliers that are right on my way to school.

Yes a shinobi a person of shadow and so fitting the word back from the Sword assesment it is a type of wakizashi used by shinobi of thr Ichizan Ru cir 1600.

And street team should put on a show in track suits on a set that looks like a street intersection.  I'll be the old man with a news apaper who shakes his fist at the kids

Philomath sucks ass.  I lived in Monmouth, worked in Corvallis and my roomie at the time had family there.  Neko, don't forget to hit Monroe and possibly make your way up to Toledo, Newport and the like if you can.

Can I add something to that?

If someone asks a question you don't know the answer to, tell them you'll get back to them on it, ask it here, and get back to them when someone can provide you an answer. That way we can all inform ourselves of what other information the vendors are expecting of us. And get business cards or the vendor's contact info, and pass them on to Sarah. They will be essential to keep for years beyond.

Week of June 5 (thirteen weeks 'till con!)
« Reply #22 on: June 05, 2006, 08:21:49 am »
Hello All!

Welcome to summer - almost here. Please check out our new fansite page - Street Team HQ! It is a work in process but is looking good, and it has the ad sheets ready to download (if anyone needs them.) FYI we would like the ads for the con book by June 30. Major props to darkerlight for the fansite:

http://kumoricon.info/street.php

I am still working on getting a.) more fliers and the posters and b.) a list of places to hit. Here is an update of what I know about who is going where:

Necko.chan = Corvallis, Albany and Philomath
Leashy = Vancouver
Dizzy cat = Milwaukie
Paru = NOVA, PORSFIS  other clubs and shops and such...
TomTheFanboy = Beaverton, Tualitin
Trumby = Clackamas
Kendra = Beaverton
Vondan = Eugene

Please let me know any updates/ changes or if I'm just dead wrong :-). Also, please post if you need more fliers. I should have them in hand soon, along with the posters (I know two of you have gotten in touch with me already...).  

Please post to let myself and others know once you drop stuff off somewhere and any general comments (interested in ad, didn't want us leaving fliers, etc.).

BlackjackGabbiani: Posted at Powells

Whew. I think that's all for now!

Fliers are here!!! I can drop them off / mail them if you tell me where.

Or - if you want to pick them up from me, let me know and I can have them avalible for you (I live in Milwaukie).

Also -  I edited the checklist above to let you all know that you do NOT have to ask everything at every place. If we just have help getting fliers out, that is supurb and we really appreciate it.

Speaking of which - here is the list of places I have hit and the response I have received:

Things From Another World, Milwaukie -- Dropped off fliers with Sane, the manager. He encouraged me to contact Lisa at Dark Horse Comics for donations (Meg our con chair talked with her last year)

Redding Library, Milwaukie -- Left fliers in magzine rack near enterance.

Counter Media, Portland -- Dropped off fliers. He said he would contact us if he wanted a table etc. (good source for henti for those of you interested)

Reading Frenzy, Portland -- Dropped of fliers. Said they cannot donate. Not interested in a table, but said that they would pass on info to some of their zine makers who draw manga.

Video Lair -- Video rental shop in Sellwood. Has a small anime section. Dropped off fliers.

Others???

I've droped off some of those flyers over at Future Dreams(Portland), I'll ask about tables etc this friday, I do belive they have done tables at conventions before.

I've taken some to NOVA already, talking with webmaster for a link.

the Tengokuno club(UP.edu) doesn't meet durring the summer and the end of the semister party happened before the meeting. the next time they meet would be after the con or rather at the con for those attending.

 Again waiting for late July for the takashi miike movie to ask Clinton street theatre about droping them off.

there are a few video stores that if i had time I could ask the best one would be movie madness, HUGE section devoted to anime, VERY popular.

NW film center will be showing "sons of Samurai" a marathon of samurai movies from June 30th to August 12th. I could ask if I attend one of the movies.

I do have some flyers left, but not sure how long that would last.

Thanks for that! Sounds great. I am not sure if Powells has a place for the fliers, but you can check. According to the list I have, they have already turned us down for donations.... Hawkeye?

Hello everyone!

Yes.. the posters... well, we currently have no posters. They are still coming. So for now, just go ahead with the fliers. Thanks!
 
Also, here is The list of Comic Book Shops on the web - searchable by any city in any state (and other countries too!)

 http://the-master-list.com/

Granted, we are dropping fliers off at more than just comic shops (gaming and card shops are great too, along with libraries, Asian grocery stores, video rental places, etc.) but this is a really useful list (however, note that some data has not been updated in a while - I noticed that one place was closed but still on the list)

- Signing off

I Know they are into anime they always have the K Con flyers and they have the largest anime section in town and used to host an anime club    I told the manager that if any one comes in to ask to get in a huff and say that VonDan is his Official K Con ambassador.

I hit a few more places:

Main Branch Library - fliers left at info desk. They said they'd put them off. Nice shelf of manga in graphic novel area

Powells downtown
- they were very nice and let me leave them at the desk nearest the manga section.

Gamers Hideout
on 99E - left fliers and info

CDGameXchange
also on 99E (McLoughlin Blvd.) - left fliers, got name of contacts to possibly approach for donations / ads etc. Dave or Joe reachable on Mon or Thurs A.M. I have their phone number (Darkerlight, I'll bring that to the meeting)

I checked on the fliers I had left at the Milwaukie Library and at Things from Another World in Milwaukie and they still had a few left. I also stopped at Excaliber, thanks to the post here - they do have an awesome collection of anime! The lady who works the manga section works Tuesdays but I didn't catch her name. (p.S. I didn't have my fliers with so I didn't leave any there yet....Hawkeye, did you want to hit this place?)

Future dreams has fliers I talked to the owner and right now  he has alot on his mind and said to ask in a few weeks(last friday).

Things from another World 42\sandy mentioned firstly that the millwalkie store makes the choice about any of this then corrected themself's and said Dark horse Corprate office. They did ask me what the other locations said, I said I personally did not do the others and can't remember what was said.
So I just droped off fliers.

I was running late to go visit cosmic monkey friday, they are not open monday So I'll go tomarrow.

I left some at Heroes and Hobbies, a collectables store in Beaverton. The man I talked to wasn't really responsive, and asked to be contacted by someone who was 'from the convention' before putting out the fliers.

The rest were distributed at The Pillows concert in Seattle.

We are doing really well - but we gotta keep it up! I just realized that we only have two general meetings before the Con! ACK!

I will have an update up VERY SOON as to where we have hit for sure, where I think someone said they were going to drop, and places we still need to go.

ALSO - the posters are STILL comming, so depending on when they are printing, maybe a few of us could get together and check on some of the places we have already left fliers (the responsive places :-) ) and see if they a.) need more fliers and /or b.) want to hang a poster.

More soon,

I went to Emerald City Comics on saterday.  They wanted ALL the flyers but I left them 30 as they are the bigest anime renter in town.  They want a poster and such and more flyers.  I talked the the manger and they dont want to vend due to the distance and I asked about swag for the acution and he said keep asking him he'll think about it.  If the con was in eugene they would be all over it.   Gonna hit some more stores tonight

I talked to that guy a coulpe of weeks ago, he said he doesn't drive for any distance, must get car sick. I mean c'mon, those glasses.

So if you could let us know when the posters get in, I could pick some up and drive to points south and deliver. Unless you really want to mail them. Personally I could stand to get out of the house.

Wanna go for a drive vondan or anyone?

I'm a nerd so I HAVE to play D&D. That and if one guy is gone for that game session the others cant play and they have to sit around playing consol games and making geek talk for 6 hours.    If there had been no D&D after the meeting I would have said every one come to my workshop to play with the sewing machines and costumes supplies

Dropped off fliers at the following locations:

Things From Another World, Milwaukie -- Dropped off fliers with Sane, the manager. He encouraged me to contact Lisa at Dark Horse Comics for donations (Meg our con chair talked with her last year). Lisa is no longer there. Our contact is now Kelly Macsisak. I mailed her a letter and left her a Voice Mail. I will attempt to f/u. with email. 6/23 - checked and there were still some there.
Redding Library, Milwaukie -- Left fliers in magazine rack near entrance. 6/23 - checked and there were still some there.
Counter Media, Portland -- Dropped off fliers. He said he would contact us if he wanted a table etc. (good source for henti for those of you interested). I will send an auction letter. Cool place. Gotta find out the owner’s name (recon mission to collect business card in order…)
Reading Frenzy, Portland -- Dropped of fliers. Said they cannot donate. Not interested in a table, but said that they would pass on info to some of their zine makers who draw manga. Perhaps take off auction list, vendor list, and ad list (if such lists existed.) Receptive to fliers so I will try back with posters. They have the CUTEST stationary (see scan - below) - they also carry a book called Fruits and Fruits II http://www.blackjelly.com/Mag2/gallery/fruits.htm - which has some AWESOME costumes…
Video Lair -- Video rental shop in Sellwood. Has a small anime section. Dropped off fliers.
NOVA - Northern Oregon / Vancouver Anime club. We have a link to their site - can they reciprocate? Have they?
Future Dreams Comics - Tables etc.? Paru believes they have done tables at conventions before. The guy was busy when we asked him but did not say no. Antares will F/U / mail him something.
Main Branch Library - fliers left at info desk. They said they'd put them off. Nice shelf of manga in graphic novel area
Powells downtown - they were very nice and let me leave them at the desk nearest the manga section.
Gamers Hideout on 99E - left fliers and info
CDGameXchange also on 99E (McLoughlin Blvd.) - left fliers, got name of contacts to possibly approach for donations / ads etc. Dave or Joe reachable on Mon or Thurs A.M. I have their phone number (Darkerlight, I'll email you. - Antares)
Things From Another World (42nd\sandy street)-  mentioned firstly that the Milwaukie store makes the choice about any of this then corrected themselves and said Dark Horse Corporate office. They did ask me (Paru)what the other locations said, I said I personally did not do the others and can't remember what was said.  So I just dropped off fliers. Antares will check back with Corporate.
Heroes and Hobbies -  Hawkeye, do you want to make contact, or take them of the “list”? The man Kendra talked to wasn't really responsive, and asked to be contacted by someone who was 'from the convention' before putting out the fliers. hobbies@yahoo.com.
The Pillows concert in Seattle.
Emerald City Comics - VonDan hit, they wanted 100 fliers. He gave them 30. They want more fliers and posters. My be interested in auction (Antares can send beg letter), not interested in vender table.
The restaurant we had our June meeting at :-)


I'm pretty sure we have the following shops covered:

Matt's Cavalcade of Comics - NecoChan?
New Age Comics & Cards - a Beaverton local; Hawkeye, Kendra, TomTheFanboy?
Nostalgia Collectibles - Ditto
Things From Another World Beaverton - Ditto

Uwajimaya (they already have posters up in their merchandise section!) - Ditto
Game shop in Beaverton Mall (name?) - Ditto

I was just wondering if people would like to do a road trip and deliver flyers/posters around the state? I don't know exactly, but I thought this way we could get some more experienced con-goers to talk to shopkeepers about flyers, and still have a picnic somewhere. And also cover a little more ground quickly.

Just a thought.
Have Fun

Dropped off at Just Be Complex, China Town Portland
I have contact info for follow up, and they are interested in a table.

Also flyer drop Ground Kontrol Gaming and Backspace Internet Cafe.

Antares, I have 5000 more flyers, but the posters have to be recreated, as the file was CORRUPT. Ugh, bad luck. I'll do my best to get them in tonight, but it may not print until after the holiday. :(

I'll hit Jantzen Beach this weekend, in case y'all were wondering if this was being worked on.

Yeah, that post from Gus was actually from me.

Flyers dropped of at Uwajimaya, Karaoke Box.

The posters had to be recreated from scratch. I have the image uploaded to the printer now, but with the holiday weekend, we won't have them until Thursday.

Note to all publicity. When you create an image, icon, poster, flyer, etc., ALWAYS make sure you create it at 300dpi or better. I finally found an uncorrupted save of the poster only to discover the background was 72dpi. Very grainy on an 11x17. The background will still appear grainy, but this time its because of the FLCL inspired design, instead of a bad copy. And this time its a Portland bridge.

Also, the printer requires CYMK, not RGB.

Little details like this can cost weeks of time that we could have been using to hand out posters. (To be fair, it helps to have money to pay for the things, too!!)

Today I had a successful flyer run!

Dropped off flyers at:

Kicks Hobby Japan - This was a small store and seemed like the most promising, and the most anime-centric. They also had a large DVD rental selection, which is impressive.
543L N.E. Northgate Way
Seattle, WA, USA, 98125
http://www.kicks-hobby.com/

Zanadu Comics - Two locations, I went to the downtown one. They were happy to display the flyers and offered to bring half of them to the U-District location! Saving me a trip. :) Large manga collection, much Tokyopop and Viz, saw Shojo Beat there.
1923 Third Avenue (the one I went to)
Seattle, WA 98101
and
1307 NE 45th
Seattle, WA 98105
http://www.zanaducomics.com/

International Model Toys - An anime-themed shop specializing in models, figures, and toys. No website, but I discovered it by accident because it was next door to one of my planned stops!
601 S King St.
Seattle, WA 98104
(no web site)

Arcane Comics & More - Only a small manga section (said they only carry manga when people ask for it). However, they were happy to display the flyers, and said they would point them out to their manga customers.
5809 15th Ave NW
Seattle, WA 98107
http://www.arcanecomics.net/

Pink Godzilla - Import and retro games. They weren't sure they could show the flyers (I think the distance from Seattle to Portland at least discouraged it), but I gave them some.
601 S. King St. #101C
Seattle, WA 98104
http://www.pinkgodzillagames.com/

Kinokuniya Bookstores - They directed me to a sort of "free newspaper" stand where I could place the flyers. The stand looked a bit crowded/messy, not sure how long they'll last in good shape. :)
525 South Weller St.
Seattle, WA 98104

Seattle Public Library - Central Library - Had a place at a single table for flyers with a modest selection already present, but had to get approval to add any there. I left them off and they will decide. Unfortunately I doubt ours will be accepted, just based on the few I saw.
1000 Fourth Ave.
Seattle, WA 98104

At every place (except Kinokuniya where it was an open stand) I also gave a printout of the web site's "Contact" page along with the flyers.

I think there are several more promising places in Seattle for me to make another run but with today's trip I am out of flyers! (On that note...how many is a good number to give out? I varied it a bit by place based on my estimate of effectiveness at that location. Usually I gave places around 50 or less.)

Also I'm emailing publicity with a few follow-up notes.

Jantzen Beach, You have been warned.

I stopped into all the retaurants in decent walking distance to give them a heads up. Looks like McDonald's may offer a promotional coupon, and Border's (attached to Starbucks) will be building their manga collection up.

Every manager was extremely grateful that we took the time to warn them well in advance.

Flyer Drops
Morning Glory (Sanrio store) in Lloyd Center (man, I hope they buy an ad. I don't think anyone knows they are there.)

Border's books Lloyd Center, though they can't display flyers , they can distribute to employees.

Restocked Powell's Book store in downtown Portland. (Once again proving that local is better. :P)

Way to go Paru and Jeff. I am waiting to hear from the Beaverton branch.

Oh, and I have been leaving between 20 -100 brochures depending on the location. When in doubt, check with the store to see what will get them through the end of August. We have more fliers now (tho not unlimited).

I have printed Ad letters (25), Newsletters (25), Ad rate sheets(25), contact lists(25), and a few checklists. I could not access the Zip file to print flyers. I got the 404 error message.

It looks like all I need are flyers and posters, and perhaps a clue, and off we go!

Nostalgia and Collectables, no nerdy girls to report so I dropped off 20 flyers, they are not interested in being a vender or donating for an auction outside of eugene

Addictive behavior, no nerdy girls to report so I dropped off 20 flyers, they are not interested in being a vender or donating for the auction as they have no anime related stuff

Big City Games of Eugene, no nerdy girls to report so I dropped off 20 flyers, they are  not interested in being a vender they have done K con and S Con before but not this year (I think it’s a chain so a store in Portland may be there), need to come back and ask the manager about a donation

Emerald City Comics, no nerdy girls to report (but when I was telling some friends about the lady who wants to introduce me to her niece in china and get me a china girl wife two mousey Asian girls in glasses appeared from behind a shelf and ran off) picked up 30 flyers (some Bogart had brought in a stack of 200) still said ask him latter about a donation

Evolution Gaming, One nerdy girl in glasses reading a book to adorable to look at so I talked to a bunch of old time war gamer guys with gray hair and then dropped off 30 flyers, they are big anifans but can’t go due to family commitments, will ask his boss (wife) about a donation

Sent e-mail to "Brooklyn John" who used to have a radio show called Media Circus, a media and culture review, on Saturday afternoons here in Eugene. He replied back, saying he would love to  come to Kumoricon, and even to host a panel.

Just sent him links and asked him if he had ideas where to go to place flyers/posters.

I listened to Media Circus every week, called in once and then they canceled the show the next week.   I was gonna try and call a lot as I  was in film school once.  After looking in the shows photo gallery after the  call screener said she wished there was an action figure of her I started a Pirate princess Holly with box art until she said she got engaged

The POSTERS are here!!!!
« Reply #65 on: July 11, 2006, 08:17:38 am »
Yes, the wait is over. The posters are here, and they are great! Please email / PM me if you need some. We really need to do another big push to get out to the shops. Some quick points:
1. Con book deadline EXTENDED. People can still buy ads until July 31.
2. Tables are still avalible for VENDORS. Be sure to mention this and put anyone interested in touch with exhibitors@kumoricon.org
3. A good idea is to run off a copy of the CONTACTS PAGE from kumoricon.org to leave with managers / owners of store. http://kumoricon.com/?page_id=17
4. Also still accepting ANY AND ALL AUCTION DONATIONS.

Please let me know if you have any questions. I can drop off posters werever you may need them, or I can give you my address if you would like to pick them up. Thanks and Good Luck!

Street Team Update – 7/14/06
« Reply #68 on: July 14, 2006, 04:55:16 pm »
We got some good response from people thanks to the posters being in.

Besides posting here and emailing the core group of Street Teamers, I contacted about 50 people from the forums who at one point or another expressed an urge to help out the con. This has lead to packets of posters and fliers being mailed to

- Bend, OR

- Newberg, OR

And dropped off in

-         Beaverton

-         Vancouver

-         SE Portland

Also , Jaybug took a mess of them back to Eugene with him,

So watch those places for posters to start popping up!

Also – I mentioned in one of my emails that we shouldn't hang fliers on telephone poles – here is the law info behind that: http://www.leg.state.or.us/ors/368.html - 368.942 Posting notices, signs or pictures on structures within county road right of way prohibited.
I didn’t know that until I worked for a political group and they told us not to. So "the more you know" hu?

Oh my gosh, the posters are BEAUTIFUL!!

I have started my attack on the city of Vancouver, putting posters and fliers up on anouncement boards in my apartment complex and local stores like fred meyers and before I really visit to comic book stores and stuff I am going to go around to alot of other apartment complexes and put the posters up near the mail boxes where there are announcement peg boards.  I hope that works out because I always pay attenion to the things on my peg boards and I know others will as well!

Deliveries made to the following cities, shops.
          Roseburg; Neverland, Heroes Haven
          Grants Pass; Neverland
          Ashland; More Fun

Only took 9 hours.

This Friday, the coast run. Need to contact Dustin, that he can do Florence. While I go further south.

The owner of Heroes Haven told me that a fellow stops by on his way to Brookings and drops stuff off every year. Hasn't yet. I ask, who is this? Because it may be nice not to drive so much if I don't absolutely have to/

Neverland of Grants Pass said it has been a couple of years since someone stopped by for Kumoricon. Was glad to get stuff.

Neverland in Roseburg was all excited about the con, especially the gaming.
Have Fun

Street team ... need to... get out... one more time... before ... PRE REG ends...

That means NOW thru August 10 peeps!!!


Please post / email / PM me as to what you are hearing on the street.
Anyone interested in the fact that....

- We have a few tables left
- We have some room left in the con book (but need to know if anyone wants ads like now)
- We still need AUCTION donation

By the way, the Live Charity Auction will have a table in the vendor room where we will be displaying auction items and, if we get donations soon (as in before the end of the month), we can thank the donors in the con book! Also, if any of YOU have donations you'd like to make to a GREAT CAUSE (http://www.pearmentor.org) please get in touch with me. (takes off auction hat)

Finally -- I wanna put together a final wrap-up report so let me know what's going on out there as soon as you can.

Thank you all!!!
May your Pocky-box never be empty.

Update from Paru
« Reply #76 on: July 31, 2006, 10:36:50 pm »
SWEET!

here is another update:

Right now as mentioned I'm working on some details for event for NOVA memembers I have given out 7 posters and a large chunk of those fliers.
I plan to post something on the NOVA mailing list after the weekend.
In terms of kumoricon fliers and what not... 1 poster given to Future Dreams, Didn't have time to check if they put it up yet. They are moving I belive before the Convention, so can't be too sure what they will able to do.. 1 Poster Given to Clinton Street Theatre with a few hand fliers. Also gave a poster and those index cards to a video store a block away(has section devoted to anime).
Earlier Today I gave Cosmic Monkey a poster and some more cards(they were almost out). While In the neighborhood I stoped by Tower Records by Gateway and was greeted and Thanked alot for coming. 3 posters and about 5 cards. I didn't want to press them for other info but... the person(possabily manger\owner) knew it from last year and was worried about it selling out even now. I explained I don't know that information but was told to still pass this out. He said he could take a few of those and make his own copies of the fliers on paper(thus saving me those index card fliers for something else). I have a few more idea's that might be good: Movie Madness and Just Be Toys. If they don't have any.

Feel Free to update this at the forum, I'm not exactly sure when I'll be able to, sometme next week I think.

I have taken a poster to my local library.  There is quite a few anime fans that meet up at the Washougal library.  Most of them are middle schoolers/early high schoolers, but I'm sure that some of them will be interested.  Plus, one of the librarians there is into anime, as well.  However, I know he won't be coming because he and his wife will be off somewhere over the weekend, I think he said in southern Oregon.

ha I'm also going to Grants Pass this weekend - on 6th street in downtown (near A st, kinda near the 7-11) there is a newish cybercafe, might want to consider dropping a flyer there. Further up the street  on the other side there is a gaming place for tabletop but they might have gone out of business. I don't know of any comic shops there but I'll ask my bro and get back to you.

I don't mean to spam, but whoever put the fliers up at the bookstore in Uwajimaya did a good job - they are difficult to miss and well-placed considering how "busy" that store already is. I haven't seen any at Small World Surprise (I call it the "Hello Kitty" store) at Cedar Hills Mall, but I haven't been there in a week or two.

It's cool that Yahoo let you put up the fliers kylite ^^.

Ok so I gave out the rest of my fliers a couple of days ago but I didn't get a chance to post until today.  Let me share my progress in Vancouver:

I left fliers at the following locations:
*A Community board in the Fred Meyers by my work
*The community board at my apartment complex ( several times because people keep wanting them)
*The community board at my old apartment complex.
*Mind Candy comic shop
*Amazing Stories comic shop
*Special Thai (my favorite thai resturant!)
*Borders at the mall
*Hot Topic at the mall
*Barganza, the bubble tea place at the mall
*Suncoast at the mall
*Sam Goody at the mall

And that is it, I was surprised that so many places at the Vancouver mall were open to letting us put fliers on their counters, Borders even took a poster to hang up!

So those are all the places I hit before running out, unfortunately no one donated or anything, but that should really help get the word out there in Vancouver! =D  I feel accomplished!

The only poster i've put up so far is on my cubicle.

That's Stream ECE in Beaverton. I've got the little flyers next to each of the email machines in the brak room though, the people that takes stuff down doesn't pay much attention as long as you don't put them on the walls. Heh heh.

I've already had a couple of takers.

@superjaz, if antares doesn't have flyers/posters for you, I have some. Just stop by Creswell on your way south. Also, I did get posters/flyers to Neverland in Grants Pass, but you may want to see if they are doing ok, and/or need more.

Yay! Scarecrow Video in Seattle has our posters and fliers!



The fliers are on the top of the shelf in front of the room (middle of the right photo).

These guys were a huge help to Sakura-Con so it is no surprise that they were happy to help us as well. :)

I have no posters or flyers (since I'm not in the street team) but if anyone lives around Clackamas, Barnes and Noble at the Clackamas Town Center would be an ideal place to post, as would the Milky Way Bubble Tea shop right off of Sunnyside.  In Gresham, there is a huge Borders Books with a really large manga section and I have seen countless people sitting around reading them in the store so no doubt these would be great places.  I would go there myself if I had posters :)

I've been the primary one doing it. I've kind hit a snag. I'm broken my hand about 2 weeks ago. I think I still have 3 or 4 more posters and aliitle bit of those index card fliers. there was one place I had in mind before I broke my hand. I eneted hot topics at lloyd and among other things I picked up some Anime wrist band. The  clerk asked "isn't there a convention going on?" I said I'll try to come back and drop something off.

As for auction: future dreams who said maybe before has moved(i think still showing poster), when i visited the owner was out so I couldn't ask. As for cosmic monkey, again broken hand really prevents me from doing much traveling. I'm already expected to have still have a cst after the convention.

so if someone else could ask them cool. If I have any left overs I'll
*try* to drop them off at the meeting(I doubt I'll be staying). I did post about kumoricon on the nova ML and the web master does have a link on the site.

Hey all --

Just a really big Thank You to all your hard work. I can't say street team had something to do with record-breaking prereg, but it couldn't have hurt.

If you can, please use up the supplies you have in restocking stores and places you may have already stopped. I hit Uwajimaya again at the Hawaiian fest this weekend because they were out of fliers. I have very few left (we started in May with 10,000 fliers, and after Fanime and passing them out to staff at a few meetings, I can acount for a lot of those being spread around by you guys). If you really have more than you can deal with before the con, please bring them to the August meeting (I'm gonna run around Jazen beach and downtown Portland probably to drop what I have left off). If you can't bring them to the meeting, well, try to get a hold of me just so I can have a count of how many we went through. You won't get in trouble or anything - we really just need to know how many we need for next year, and how many people thought were an acceptable amount.

Thanks so much !!!!
On to K-CON!

i have somthing sad to say, when i went to seattle i thought about taking a spare poster to advataize the con but thought "its a uwajimaya i'm sure they have kumoricon stuff there but i'll take a poster just in case"
of course i forget the poster,and when i get there they dont have any love for kumoricon no notheing , i talked to the gril there she said they usaly advatize for sakura,
she did say they just got a new manager so he might of took them down or something but still :(

I did manage to drop off a poster at Things from Another World last week.
So yeah they have one finally. Two weeks before the convention but hey, people will more likely remember it.
