2013 Geek Gala Work Day #2

  • Oct 12, 2013 · 11:00 AM
  • Giddy Geeker's

Join us for our second Geek Gala work day! Help make our 5th annual Geek Gala a smashing success.  Helping us out on this day can also earn you a free pass to the Gala (t-shirt sold separately) 

What will we need help with? Everything! We'll be building and painting sets, designing games, sorting and logging donations, and anything else we might need.  

Please bring with you any tools, materials, and tents/shades/ folding tables you may have.  Also, wear your grubbies and be prepared to get dirty. 

Please post what you can bring.  Also, if you have any connections for possible donations of building materials, fabrics, craft materials, etc, please speak up! 

Thanks!

I will be providing lunch and drinks, but feel free to bring your faves to shares well.

    Hey everyone! This work session will be very messy! Unless you opt out of set-painting and just work on games, most of what we're doing involves paint, glue and fabric. Most of what we need built has already been constructed, now we need to paint some more and cover some stuff with fabric soaked in glue and paint. It's messy but awesome! A few things we need you to bring if possible: a sewing machine and someone who knows how to operate it (will not get messy or be anywhere near glue), we need staple guns with staples that you ARE willing to get a bit messy with glue and paint (it is all water-soluble, so it will clean up) and maybe a few extra large buckets to dip cloth into some paint/glue mixture. That's it, please let me know if you have questions. Thanks!!!!! :-)

      Please bring that just in case - there can be a lot of people stapling at one time! Thanks!

      I have the sewing machine :)

    Any reason I shouldn't bring my young labor force (15, 14 and 11)?

    October 10, 2013

    • Stan P.

      I don't think there's any reason not to. The help would be appreciated!

    I'm willing to help out w/the painting etc as needed as well as sorting and logging donations. I do have A LOT of books and some other items to donate to the GG, but can only bring one bag of stuff on the bus Sat.

    If anyone has any old action figures or Barbie's that they don't care what happens to them we can use them for a Gala Game. Just bring them with you to the workday.

    sorry I will not be able to attend. I had so much fun at the first work today.I will be in the mountains of Georgia completing my zombie apocalypse survival training. I hear they're actually doing free reenactments of deliverance I was thinking about going to see that. I was wondering if anyone seen my battery charger for my drill I think I left it at the first work day.

    Hi again,
    I keep saying I'm coming, and then never seem to be able to, but this time is different. I now have my new magical geek belt. With it's ominous spectacular powers wound about my waste I will no longer be overcome by bouts of pain or other stuff. I will bring small hand tools and have a set of air tackers from small brads to 2x4 size.(These are about 3" nails) I just finished a spine surgery but it looks like I'll be ready to help by 10/12, if only to bring stuff and cheer on others. I for sure should be able to sort and record stuff. Let me know if there is a need for boards (2x4, 1x4, 2'x4' pressed wood shelving etc, as I have some left over from some storage shelving I'm no longer using.
