I have this posted on Facebook as a public event, so make sure you invite your friends sooner rather than later! Since we are hosting this, I will ask for volunteers when we get closer to things! Here's what's on Facebook:
This is the event page for the 1st Annual EBRC Nerdy Cosplay Field Day!
EBRC is East Bay Renegade Cosplay and while we have been around for about a year now we have over 100 members on our Meetup.com site and continue to host all kinds of cosplay related events. This is going to be an all-ages cosplay event jam-packed with nerdy contests and activities! Since this is the first year that we are hosting it, I wasn't sure how much interest we would have so I have reserved a spot at a mid-sized park. So despite reserving the largest space there, there is an event capacity limit of 300 people. This means that to ensure you get a spot you should pre-pay for the event using the link below. (Which will also help me to purchase food, awards, etc.) I will be putting up a schedule of activities when it gets closer to the event as well as sign-ups and other details, but so far we have been kicking around the ideas of a costume contest, a nerdy fashion show/competition, trivia contests, photo shoots, cosplay photography contests and a myriad of other activities!
Date: June 8, 2014
Time: 10:00AM – 6:00PM
Place: Larkey Park, Walnut Creek, CA
Park Address: 2771 Buena Vista Ave, Walnut Creek, CA Park Map and Directions: http://walnut-creek.org/documents/Recreation/Picnics/LarkeyParkMap.pdf Picnic Site: Group Site A+B
Fee: $5 per person. This will (hopefully) cover the cost of the picnic site, food, drinks and the awards for the many contests taking place during the field day! Here's the link to pre-pay for the event: http://www.eventsbot.com/events/eb855282086 There's also an option to purchase a booster ticket which will get you a special little trinket at the event, but will mostly just help us cover our costs. If you're willing and able to get one of those tickets it would be greatly appreciated! :) Parking: It's free, but there isn't a whole lot of it in the lots. Fortunately, there is quite a bit of street parking, so carpool if at all possible :)
Please make sure you adhere to the following rules:
- This is going to be at a park where there are lots of families. This means no overly revealing or sexually suggestive costumes (not a time to drag out your Witchblade costume) or excessively dangerous weapon props. NO LIVE STEEL WEAPONS. NO GUN PROPS AT ALL. Also, this includes Nerf guns, water guns, and other disruptive toys like that. Anything shaped like a gun is NOT allowed. Use common sense with this one guys! If you think it's questionable, then it's probably not something you should bring!
- We will be in public, so please do not bring any alcohol, drugs, or other substances of that nature. And don't come to the park under the influence of anything. I'd think that would go without saying, but just in case!
- Once again, public, all-ages event! So don't be an idiot! It's just that simple!
Thanks so much for your interest! Can't wait to see you there!
