2007 STREET TEAM!
« Reply #50 on: February 12, 2007, 08:04:02 am »
Dearest ST peeps,

There is another fair next weekend, the Asian Celebration in Eugene, at
which Copic Marker has offered us a little bit of space on their table.
I already have three people who have volunteered for shifts at manning
the table.

So far we have the following people interested in helping, but we still have some holes in the sced. we need to fill:

- Ellen
- Vondan
- Rachael
 

Please let me know if there is anyone else out there who would like to attend and help out Street Team!


Once we have a count we can organize shifts.

Here is their web site:
http://www.aaforegon.com/asiancelebration/

It is two days, Saturday and Sunday, February 17-18, and 10am-6pm both
days.

Contact me via email, PM or just post in this thread, thanks!

As the person who conduited this (Marianne proposed it to me, I forwarded it to Meg & Jeff) I spoke with Marianne today. She is the Copic distributor who is  sponsoring KC to share half her table.

Tonight she picks up the passes. There are like 10 of them, like 5 volunteers per day potentially.

Someone will need to pick these up before the event or they would have to pay to come into the event to pick them up during.

I could potentially meet Marianne there while she's setting up Friday night. She sets up after 4. I would be able to be there after 5:30 if she is still there.

I might be able to come by her work some time tomorrow instead potentially........

I personally could not do a shift until after I got out of school on Saturday, meaning no earlier than 2 on Saturday.

Maybe I could do something like 2 to 5 on Saturday.

Sunday is my only day off and so if possible I would prefer to keep it that way.

However, if the other folks can only come Saturday, then I would be willing to do perhaps 2 hours on Sunday, provided I did not also have to do Saturday, if that makes sense.

I have never been shown how to take registrations and it would be helpful if I could get that info ahead of time if possible.

Thanks everyone!

PS It would be great if someone from Street Team could let Marianne know what to expect, either through me or I left Meg a voice mail with Marianne's email address for her to pass on to Jeff.

Yay us go team!

Hello Everyone!

First off

Team Eugene
- I will be PMing you with more details, but thank you for being willing and able to help out this weekend.  We will probably just have fliers to hand out and posters to hang up - we will probably not be taking registrations - just point people towards our website (shown on the fliers) if they want more info or wish to register. What we learned from the Portland Chinese New Year festival was that it is important to educate the public on what anime is, what kumoricon is and that we exist (and that we're fun and there's lots to do etc. etc.)

Secondly - here are some photos from the Chinese New Year in Portland:

Just wanted to give one more shout out for the "Oregon Asian Celebration" at the Eugene Lane County fairgrounds this weekend. Times are 10a.m. - 6p.m. Sat and Sun. They are expecting 20,000 people (prob. less because of the rain, but still a ton!)

They will have cooking demos, crafts, martial arts, entertainment, an Asian marketplace and lots more.

Admission is only$3 and KCon will be sharing a booth with Copic markers. If you go, please stop by and say hi!

Yo.

Thank you to all who responded w/ snailmail addresses and info.
I will be in touch soon.
More fliers have been ordered - yippie!

We have so much cool stuff going on / coming up - check it out:

- Volunteer for Sakura Festival at Uwajimaya Beaverton! Can you feel spring in the air, people??? Cherry Blossoms? Those fish pastries?? Thread here: http://kumoricon.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4025&highlight=
PM me if interested! (and thx to you who have already.)

- Come to the March Meeting! New date: Sunday, March 11 instead of Saturday, March 10. The time of day (2pm to 5pm) and location (Salem Public Library) remain the same. Please view http://kumoricon.com for more info Update: The room is Anderson B.  

- Check out ChibiCon! Kumoricon is setting up a booth trade with Chibi Chibi Con, a small con in Olympia, WA run by a local anime club.
It is held March 17-18,Thread here: http://kumoricon.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4027&highlight=
PM me if you can man the booth for a bit.

- Volunteer for a stint at the table for SakuraCon - known in certain circles as K-Con's big sister. http://www.sakuracon.org
PM me if you are going and would like to volunteer to help the cause!

- Post in Cosplay. com - yes, Street Team is in existence on the Information Superhighway of the internet (sorry!) Get the word out about kcon online! Thread here:
http://kumoricon.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3902

- Rally the MySpacers! Another good place to post cosplay pics and let everyone know about kcon! Thread: http://kumoricon.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3841

- There is a DeviantArt thread and a GaiaOnline thread somewhere on these forums, but don't let possible anime fans escape the reach of Street Team there! Word of mouth is one of the #1 ways people find out about cons, so let everyone know what we are and tell them to register before April 21 to get the best price!!

Remember, there are incentives for volunteers to put in hours, and if you signed up as Street Team, we need your help (and I need you to let me know what ur up to so I can justify my existace to the higher-ups!)

Also coming soon is a "Where did you leave tha fliers?" thread with a list..of where people left fliers.

Yeah.

I need someone to put together a convention photo / scrap book to be used at Street Team outreach (like SakuraFestival, other cons etc.) That way we can show people what the con looks like. At certain places we can just have a laptop showing a slide show or even YouTube, but not all places have power. Anyone want to help?

At the Pocky Club meeting I dropped of some fliers and posters with Oishii Desuyo and her friends. Since they're in clackamas they're 67% more likely to visit Fubon in the next month. They're all official members of Pocky club now, and therefore Street Team volunteers.

I told them to find this thread and post if thy find places to drop them off. I also gave them two sets of the Street Team info packs. Jeff can attest to this since he showed up at the meeting and made our day.

Sometime this week, I'm going to start asking Sushiland (Clackamas) and perhaps some other Asian stores if I can put up posters.
I'm glad to be part of the team! I'll try my best! :3 Thank you~

Other good places to try:
- Cafes (post a flier or two on their bullion board)
- Libraries (ask if you can leave some fliers in the free newspaper / flier area)
- Restaurants (again, ask if you can leave near the free newspapers or counter if staff seem interested / clientèle seem right.)
- Larger chain stores (Boarders, Tower Records etc. - many times they cannot display at counter etc. but they may be interested in having a few for staff - sometimes they have bullion boards too.)

I have already dropped off fliers at Things From Another World in Beaverton. That's my comics shop so I stop by there often to make sure they're stocked and out posters are still on the windows.

I didn't see any fliers but I know that the Kinokuniya bookstore in Beaverton has our posters up.

I can probably stop by Heroes and Hobbies in Beaverton, but I don't like those guys, they're creeps.

Running out of Wheat!? What will they make the bred with?

Everyone -- sorry I have been out of touch.
The Uwajimaya Sakura Fest is happening today Saturday April 21! Please visit the Kumoricon booth to register if you haven't yet, and you can walk away with your badge today!!!

Here is the directions to the store, which is one of the most awesome experiences in the greater Portland area if you ask me!

Repost from main page:

April 23, 2007 – Tier 2 Registration ends on Sunday

That’s right: you have 6 days to register before the price goes up to $35. If you pre-register after Sunday, you will not receive your badge until August (or at the Convention if you opt for Will Call).

We’ve just passed 400 preregistrations. With so many registrations at Sakura-Con, Sakura Fest, and online in the past few weeks, we can see increased excitement this year over last.

So register today! Let’s shoot to get 600 registrations by Sunday, April 29 at 11:59 pm!


We can do this! Using our patented Street Team Word of Mouth powers, be sure to mention to anyone who is thinking about coming to Kumoricon that if they want to get the best price, they should register now!

Thanks all.

I actually have a whole bunch of materials that I haven't been able to use yet. Anybody free on Friday or Saturday with a car? There's a whole bunch of places along Cedar Hill Blvd in Beaverton that I haven't been able to get to since it would take so long to walk to all of them with a big bag of flyer and stuff.

Any takers for racking up the volunteer hours? I'll buy you an ice cream cone!  :D

Yeah, I would definitely like to meet up with anyone who is going to any of the days. I am aiming for every day, but may not make the Thursday, unfortunately. Still, it'd be nice to meet up with some forumsters.

I'm just curious, is there a list that we can look at that has all the places that have been visited and what has been done there. For instance, one place I went to accepted a few flyers, but didn't want a poster or advertising/donation info at the time, because it was so early. I'd just like to know where the word has been spread and...how much of the word, I guess  :)

YES!

However, I can only update it with as much info as Street Team members give me, so if you see something that needs to be updated, let me know.

We really should plan to start closing the loop with some of the stores etc. (after the May meeting would be great) since deadlines for Vendor and Panel reg is coming up in June (I think)...

Did I mention I still have 4 or 5 hundred flyers in Eugene. I have been to busy fighting Darth Real life and moving my workshop to do anything with them. And this week if any one comes by 685 Wilson in West Eugene 345 3256 to pick up flyers i'll let them help paint the showroom

Ok I need more fliers!

Haha Sarah I will also e-mail this to you, but dakrum and I went out and hit the Vancouver area.

We went to Amazing Stories, a comic book store, and gave them fliers.  

Sushi Hana on 136th and Mill plain as well as Fusion Bubble Tea right next door and gave them fliers

At the Vancouver mall we hit:
Borders - poster (which they are now displaying) and fliers, they were VERY excited because they will be at the CON this year since it is in Vancouver
Suncoast - gave fliers and poster for the employees
Barganza Pearl Tea - gave fliers
Hot Topic - gave fliers
Audrey's Treasures (Hello Kitty Store) - fliers and 2 posters because the cashier wanted an extra for themself
Unique Imports - gave fliers, but is was SO cute, this couple cam over to us to ask us about the anime convention and if they could have a flier for their granddaughter because she is coming to K-con as her first con and we gave them a poster too!  Felt special <3

Ok and that is really it.  Went back to Mind Candy but they were closed so I will have to go again later!

Wow leashy! Good job!

I'm going to be swinging through Cedar Hills Crossing this weekend, finally, and I'm worried I won't have enough fliers. I have two bricks and a whole lot of posters. I'll give out as many as possible.

Before Pirates on Saturday Mr_Mustash did street team work under my supervision (I showed him where the places were).

We visited Small World (a Sanrio store, one poster), Game Trader (who took posters, fliers, and the info sheets), Powells Books (the rest of our fliers for their manga section), Borders (hung a poster and fliers on the community board), and Best Buy (took some fliers for the break room).
All of these place are in Cedar Hills Crossing on Cedar Hills Blvd in Beaverton.

We also got over to the Beaverton Wunderland. They gave us their office number for people to call. 503-238-8582

Heroes and Hobbies was closed and has no hours posted. Again, I've heard bad things about that guy. His store is mostly back issues and not new manga type stuff.

Things from Another World in Beaverton still has enough fliers.

There is a Bubble Bubble place right near Beaverton Fred Meyer that someone should visit as well.

One of my biggest faults is forgetting to bring posters and fliers when I go places. D:

However! That's going to be changed! :3
Places I'm planning to hit soon:
• Sushiland in Clackamas
• Things From Another World in Milwaukie
• Suncoast in Clackamas Town Center

Anymore places in Clackamas/Milwaukie you'd suggest?

BTW, Vic and I handed out a few fliers to people at our school and we've seem to have gotten good feedback. :3

Hello everyone!

Well, Street Team 2007 is winding down. We are still looking for any shops, restaurants etc. that have shown an interested in being involved (vendors, donations, ads etc.) but other than that (and due to the fact that we are nearly out of fliers, added to the fact that the batch we were going to have at the July meeting was misprinted, AND registration ends AUGUST 11 -pant pant-) we're in the home stretch.


If you have leftover fliers, I ask that you get them out onto the streets now!
Hit your favorite / most popular places again ('specially busy places like Powell's bookstores or Things From Another World comic shops, etc.)


And, be sure to tell everyone you know that the last chance to pre-register at the $35 rate
(and hopefully not have to stand in the registration line - pre-reg should be much faster this year because people will have their badge ahead of time) is FRIDAY AUGUST 10! 

Thanks again to all of you!! You have really helped this year's pre-reg skyrocket (at last count it was 800 strong and growing - a number we didn't reach for anther few weeks last year!!!)
