The little billies won't hurt you Jaz! don't be scared of them!
You can tell they'r good goats because they have circles for pupils.

Evil goats have hourglass pupils and sometimes mohawks.

I have ab unch of fliers and I will be going by Powell's in Beaverton soon (harrypotterharrypotterharrypotter) and I'll be sure to check Things in Beaverton as well.

I didn't know if we planned to get more since the last batch was misprinted or are we just gonna give out the misprinted ones and like tack onthe website address to them? ;-; Vancouver needs fliers everyone!

Antares, if you can post or send me the phone number of West Side Pizza, and any of the other delivery places downtown I'd like to add the phone numbers to my map.

I saw a Chinese takeout place but I never got it on the map, I noticed you grabbed one of their menus, could I get their address from you?

I'm planning on getting their menus linked up later once I know what places delivery.


leashy, have you eaten West Side's pizza before?

I have and they are very yummy! They have lots of specials where you get a pizza, 2 liter soda, cheese bread, and dessert pizza for around $20.  I will see if I can stop in to get a bunch of their coupon things for our swag bags or something.  They also deliver and are the closest pizza place to CON, I think they also stay open until around 11 or later as well

I'll give them a ring at Westside pizza next week. They seemed really interested in providing coupons for our bags, as did Burgerworld.

From Jeff -- Seattle has been fliered -

·         Zanadu Comics (downtown location, gave enough for them to bring half to U-District location)
Also posters
http://www.zanaducomics.com/

·         Kinokuniya Seattle
They recognized Kumoricon and said their Portland store was participating! Better result than last year, where they just had me place the flyers inside the Uwajimaya flyer rack. This time they put them on the checkout counter.

·         International Model Toys
Also posters

·         Video Hop
Next door to IMT—Japanese video rental store. Mostly Japanese TV shows recorded directly off of TV on home VHS tapes and DVD-Rs, intended for Japanese-speaking customers. Carried a good deal of anime, but a haphazard selection and not really an anime-themed store.
Gave a small number of flyers

·         Anime Kingdom (Bellevue)
Also posters
http://animekingdomonline.com/

·         Kicks Hobby Japan
Also posters
Interested—asked about exhibitors table. I emailed information to them tonight, and CCed exhibistors@kumoricon.org. Said there was a good chance they would be willing to have a table there. I also gave them program ad info.
http://www.kicks-hobby.com/

·         Scarecrow Video
Also posters
I had emailed them in advance to display these. I work with Scarecrow as part of my Sakura-Con staff position of Video Room Coordinator, also (which is a fun coincidence).
http://www.scarecrow.com/

All of these were repeats except for Video Hop.

Great! Thanks Jeff!

I am out of fliers and don't know if the messed up batch is reprinted. I will try to take the posters I have (I still have a lot) and double check places to see if they need anything else / want to donate / are or can display poster. If any Street Team members still have posters, pls. check places you have dropped fliers (main stores at lease) and see if you can put up a poster (if they don't have one up already.)

There are still about 3 weeks left to preregister and have your badge mailed to you!

When I checked on Things from Another World, they still had the poster but I had to take back the fliers. they told me they don't want fliers on the counter for more than 6 months. Also, there were other people bothering them about the con, so pay attention to the street team updates people!

So next year, I'll bring them their fliers in May and the crucial summer months will be covered.

If I didn't state this before, we have gone around to all the restaurants w/in walking distance from the Convention Center in Vancouver, and a few within driving distance, to alert them to the fact that we will be having the convention over Labor Day Weekend.

Last night I spoke with Excalibur Comics and dropped off some fliers.

Also, we have more fliers so please PM me if you need more!

I just emailed Burgerworld and West Side Pizza.

Starbucks might warrant a call-back. Same w/ Subway. We didn't get a chance to stop at Quizno's (which is in the same bld. as the indoor portion of the Farmer's Market.

Others are up for grabs -- we'd need to get the list back from Jeff T cuz I didn't make a copy :-P

Ooh, I always forget about that Quizno's! (mental note to eat there at least once come Labor Day)

Hey, it might help get the Quiznos to work with us if you get a recommendation from the Quiznos next to the Doubletree, they had just opened before Kumoricon 2005 and they gave swag coupons. If it worked well for them they could probably give a good recomendation to their fellows up in Vancouver.

From what I recall they were only open until 4pm on saturdays and closed on sunday so good luck because they probably are closed on labor day

That's fairly dumb. They won't stay in business long that way. Nevertheless they may extend their hours for us, especially since we won't be the only draw for a lot of people to that area that weekend.

http://blog.oregonlive.com/breakingnews/2007/07/vancouvers_indoor_farmers_mark.html

A sad note to that effect: "Less than two years after the Vancouver Farmers Market jumped into the restaurant business with visions of a bustling indoor bazaar like Seattle’s Pike Place Market, its directors are giving up.

The nonprofit organization is more than $200,000 in debt and losing more almost every day.

The indoor market this week told its vendors that the indoor space will close Sept. 30. The weekend outdoor market will remain."

Too bad! And the guy at the indoor infodesk was really nice - telling us about how he bought Pokemon for his daughter but ended up getting hooked!

HI!

Please check out the Anime News and Current Events - two movies at two different theaters.
If anyone is going and has fliers, please ask nicely if we can leave some! I really wish the theaters would give us a headsup. We will just have to keep on them!


*EDIT - I stopped by there tonight - 7/30 and dropped off fliers. Got all the info on how to get notified next time they show Anime!
