Thank you everyone so much for all the contribution so far. There have been some really great ideas and thanks to Lynne for compiling this vast summary! Here is a what we have going so far:


Booth Construction

Tent ? Patty has rented us a 10x10 tent with 2 side & back walls. It will be delivered on Friday and we will need someone with a van or pickup to help tear down Sunday 6/2 and return to the rental on Platte River Dr. (near the fair) on Monday.


Tables ? Lynne will bring two 5' tables to stretch across the back



Banners ? We are going to make banners like the ones shown in the following video:

We need to get the materials for this project and set a ?Banner Construction Day?. I left a message for Tim to price and locate the Tyvek for the soft banners and Coroplast (corrugated plastic) for the stencils and signs. Go here to see pictures of these items. http://www.rescue-us.org/RPRinstruction.htm

Patty thinks she has a grommet tool for the banners.
We will also need exacto knives.
A more complete list of supplies will be forthcoming.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, does someone have a big indoor or outdoor space, where we can get down and use the spray paint and knock the signs and the banners out? Please let us know soon!


TV/Computer ? to run loop videos that Chris is working on. (not sure what the verdict is on this one) Also, alternative power source to play video ? don?t know how this is coming along, or if we need it. Lorrie has a battery powered video player, but we need to no the screen size.


Professional Video Camera ? for use in ?Street Walking? type segment, Tim is working on locking this down


Promotional Materials

T-Shirts ? (Patty I think you are working on the printing of these right?) again, here is the link to what most everyone likes so far. Patty has been pricing the various printers and suppliers. This will likely go over to Monday. Bumper Stickers, T-Shirts and buttons have a deadline priority over handouts since the turnaround time for them is greater.


Buttons ? designs are also on the link. One design (bring our troops home) Patty has already ordered. Lynne's combo Vendetta-Revolution in Red White & Blue looks great. Need a couple more designs.

Bumper Stickers ? Ron Paul Revolution design in link below already ordered. (Patty to give details on this)


Flyers ? Design in link below. To stay cost effective decided on color paper with black ink. 20,000 for $184 through Quality Press. Lynne will get printed and bring to event. Patty found a list of the "Brief Overview of Congressman Paul?s Record" from a website.

We will probably have another meeting prior to our sign making session, so that we can coordinate our efforts in that direction.

Hope this isn't too chock full of information, but things will calm down a little after the People's Fair.
