2007 STREET TEAM!
« on: November 05, 2006, 12:39:16 pm »
Hello everyone! This is just a preliminary start to a thread that I think will be very active this year.

Street Team is, in a way, the pre-convention face of Kumoricon. These are the noble souls who brave talking to strange comic shop managers, interested librarians and other various parties who might want to advertise in the con book, donate an item or two to our live charity auction, or just display our fliers and posters in their stores.

Since our mascot was chosen early this year, we should be able to have posters and fliers very soon. If you would like to help out the con, but are short on time, this is an awesome way to help! Please post below and (although I am not officially the ST Leader) I will get in touch with you.

If you have helped in the past, please post and let us know what worked and what didn't. Also, if you have any suggestion as to benefits (tee shirts, patches, buttons) or another name for the group (someone last year said it sounded like an 80s breakdancing group), post those too!

Hey I learned on CSI that a Street Team is the group of hanger ons who do free work for a rapper to do advertising putting up posters and handing out flyers.  I was right ti suspect there is suposed to be break dancing involved

Howdy howdy howdy all! I will get a ST update soon and post it here. Official launch of ST will be at the Jan meeting, so let me know you thoughts on timing, things that work, things that don't, any suggestions etc. Any and all constructive input welcome!!! Also, anyone interested in ST-specific swag? Buttons? Teeshirts? Patches? ST dinner? I can't promise anything but as I said, now is the time to get all those ideas out there before things get cra-zy!

great idea just show "restaint" with the wash fangirls and bring Nekojawia along to entertain the kids

Ohhh and add a Jazz band called Otaku Funk the backup singers/dancer will be the Wash-O-Gals.  You have to play bass and wear your porkpie hat backwords and grow a little cheesy chin beard

Of course right on but will any one do it.

A multy Media and live presentation that traveled to schools and did shows on Japanese popular culture covering history, film, games, graphic arts and print could be a thinly disguised advertisement for Kumoricon and would boost attendance (at least in the chibi room) and create a larger pool of volunteers and staff (for K Con 2017).

I'm willing to do anything as long as I understand pretty good what I'm doing. Well and if I am equipped with the proper supplies. Of course if it invovles traveling to schools I would like to have other people with me. That would be fun.

NOTICE: Street Team 2007 will launch at the January General Meeting!

The January general meeting will be held at the Salem Public Library on Sunday, January 21, from 2-5pm.

101 Liberty St. SE
Salem, OR 97301

See http://kumoricon.com for links to mapquest / Googlemaps.

I would like to really start to plan the delivery dates and places for this year's poster / flier drops (will post where they ended up last year soon - watch this space!). Also go over what all we want to say. I should have the auction donation letter ready to hand out to Street Teamsters at the meeting, but I'm waiting on:

1. Letter asking people to buy an ad in conbook
2. Letter asking people to buy a table at Kcon
3. Anything else we want to get into the hands of store owners.

By meeting time I will have contacted people who have shown an interest in Street Team, but I'm gonna try to get some time at the meeting to assign stuff.

If anyone knows any other events we should be at
(Sakuracon, AsiaFest, Japanfest etc.) please P.M. me so that we can sort out how many posters and fliers we need to devote to them (and trades...)

Weeeee! Of we go!
Happy 2007 everyone!!!!

Robotech: Shadow Chronicles to début in Portland!
(From Sakuracon.org)

January 5th (7:30pm & 9:30pm)
January 6th (3:30pm, 5:30pm, 7:30pm & 9:30pm)
January 7th (3:30pm, 5:30pm, 7:30pm)

   
Harmony Gold and FUNimation are bringing the latest installment of the Robotech series to the Hollywood Theater in Portland.

http://www.hollywoodtheatre.org/calendar/robotech.html

In the year 2044 AD, the human race has reached out to the stars through the miracle of ROBOTECHNOLOGY, but not without bringing intergalactic war upon the Earth itself.

A heroic cast of returning characters led by SCOTT BERNARD and VINCE GRANT fight to end a decades-long struggle against an enigmatic alien race known as the INVID. However, the mysterious disappearance of the legendary ADMIRAL HUNTER will unfold in a treacherous mystery that could tear apart our young heroes and threaten their very survival!

Featuring the voices of Mark Hamill (Star Wars) and Chase Masterson (Star Trek: Deep Space 9), Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles features cutting edge CG animation beautifully composited with vibrant anime characters.

To purchase tickets, visit www.boxofficetickets.com.

... I'll swing by there and see if they would mind putting out some fliers or maybe a poster for this run.

Just so you know, TomTheFanboy and I went to the 9:30 showing last night.  They had a Q&A session with Ford Riley, a co-writer for the project, and Kevin McKeever, a production/marketing guy for Harmony Gold.  They gave out some posters and answered fan questions about the movie.  

I actually was able to talk to Kevin about the con and gave him a flier, and he gave me his business card.  He came to the con in 04, and apparently is friendly with Sean, and would love to hear from us.  So, I emailed Sean the info.  

^_^

We also handed out some fliers and talked up other audience members.  

It was a good night!

Yaay! Thank you all!!!  Posted below now is the "official" Street Team invite letter which was emailed to most everyone I have emails for. If you didn't get it, let me know and I'll add to my list!

<Ring Ring!>
"Hello?
"Are you a K-Con ST member?"
"ummmmm...."

If so then KONICHIWA! And welcome.

This is Antares (AKA Sarah Bartash), Street Team Leader for 2007. I am just making contact with yous-all to say hello, make sure you are still interested and gather some more info.

Street Team is, in a way, the pre-convention face of Kumoricon. You are the noble souls who brave talking to strange comic shop managers, interested librarians and other various parties who might want to advertise in the con book, donate an item or two to our live charity auction, or just display our fliers and posters in their stores.

What I need to know is this:

1. What is your real name?
2. What is the best way to contact you
(email address, phone number, forum PM etc.)
3. Where are you located?
4. Where do you know of that you would be willing to drop off fliers, ask about donations etc...?

5. Will you be at the JANUARY 2007 meeting (Salem Public Library on Sunday, January 21, from 2-5pm. 101 Liberty St. SE Salem, OR 97301
6. Are there other Aime-related things (clubs etc.) you are involved with or conventions you are planning on attending this year?

It is important for you to respond and keep in touch. I am also open to any suggestions, ideas, comments etc. you may have. I am working on some street team buttons and perhaps some other tchotchki exclusive for Street Team 2007 members, and in conference with the convention chair to find out what other things we can offer ST members. Stay tuned, and feel free to leave any information on our official link on the Kumoricon forums under "Get Involved"

HAPPY 2007 EVERYONE!!!!!

KCON At CHINESE NEW YEAR!!!
« Reply #32 on: January 31, 2007, 09:06:28 pm »
Hi everyone!! I would like to say that we are trying very hard to get a booth at this year's Chinese New Year which is taking place at the Portland Convention Center on Feb 10.

With up to 10,000 attendees, we'll need some help, so please get in touch ASAP if you can visit us at the booth for a bit!!!

This coming year is the Year of the Pig and the first day of the Chinese New Year will be on February 10th. To celebrate the longest and most important holiday on the Chinese calendar, the 2007 Chinese New Year Cultural Fair will be held on Saturday, February 10th at the Oregon Convention Center. The 2007 Chinese New Year Cultural Fair- Year of the Pig - will showcase both traditional and contemporary Chinese cultural activities including Chinese folk dance, Chinese instrumental music and
popular oldies, dragon and lion dance, and Kung Fu and martial arts demonstrations, and Chinese puppet show. There will also be more than 100 booths featuring different products and services. The attractions will
thrill both the young and old.

More info here:
http://www.portlandchinesetimes.us/cny07/2007nyf.html

I should know by Friday for sure if we have a booth.

That's my birthday weekend and I don't know what plans my friends are making. My birthday is on the 15th so they might be done by then. *shrug*


What locations should I visit when Pocky Club goes to Lloyd Center for our meeting on the 11th?
AKA the meeting-for-people-who-can't-go-to-Eugene?

They have a Suncoast and a little Sanrio type store hidden in the back. Is there anything else there, maybe the video game shops?

If any of you are worried about missing out on information at the meeting in Eugene this very same day, remember that Pocky Club is having a meeting in Lloyd Center where I will be giving out information from the meeting in Eugene.

I'm opening it up to all Portland staffers and not just the Club because not everyone can be everywhere at once. Also, if you need information taken TO Eugene, please notify me (or valliegirl if it's more "official" staff info) so I can bring it to the directors.

Would it be possible to put a word document on the Kumoricon page or somewhere we could download it of all the various email addresses and advertising rates, etc? That way everyone could easily print them out and leave a copy with comic stores and other potential vendors/donators.

Hello Everyone --

I will not be at the Feb. meeting in Eugene tomorrow
(DIVA classroom (Downtown Initiative for the Visual Arts)
110 W Broadway, Eugene, OR 97401
from 2 p.m. - 5 p.m.
)
so please say nice things about Street Team :D , and if you have any questions please email me. Also, don't forget to let me know where you are leaving fliers.

As I'm sure you know by now, I am going to be at the Portland Convention Center at the Chinese New Year Cultural Celebration from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. on Sat.  For those of you who are not going to Eugene (or drive real fast), you can stop by, say "hi" - bring your friends to register (hint hint!) Anyone who registers at the fair will have their badge mailed out special the following Monday. We will have a drawing for a "vintage" (2006) tee shirt and some stickers to give away, we'll be taking registrations and signing people up for volunteering. I'm bringing my camera! Admission is only $3!

We will also probably be doing the Uwajimaya Sakurafest in April. Please let me know if you are interested in working the booth there!

I'm pretty sure that Vallie and myself will be able to work the Sakura fest booth for a few hours. We won't be going to Seattle after all.

Thanks to all who attended the Chinese New Year Fair! We gave out over 200 fliers and about 60 reg forms, talked to tons of people - some who had never heard the word "anime" and others who are very excited to learn that an anime convention existed in the Portland / Vancouver area. We made some good contacts and hope to have photos up soon.

special thanks to lili and heidi for manning the booth!

Amazing job you guys!  I'm glad I've got a good list of people coming to the envelope stuffing tomorrow so we can get these new reg's out the door!

YAY!

pinkrandomattack: corrected, thanks!

valliegirl: Sorry for the confusion - we gave out 60 regs but didn't have anyone register at the event itself.
