Geek Gala Work Day: Set Design

Join us for the first of 2 Geek Gala work days! 

First up will be the backdrops and sets used for the stage and photo booth at the Geek Gala.  Please bring any tools (power or manual), drop cloths, paint supplies, and other items you think will be helpful.  We'll be stretching muslin over frames, so items like saws, grommeting tools, staple guns, and spare scraps of wood or muslin will be extremely helpful.  We'll also be working on a few new midway dividers, so sewing kits and machines are also welcome! 

We are also still collecting zombifiable barbies, "action figures", baby dolls and toy-sized vehicles for the set design.

Lunch and munchies will be provided.  We may also be working on a few games for the event - and testing them out. 

All volunteers helping out on this day will be eligible to attend the Geek Gala for FREE - so this is a great way to pay for your ticket if funds are tight.

Please help us make the 4th Annual Geek Gala even better than before!

    I'm leaving now also. I've got some leftover brushes, rollers, and paint trays from some painting I've been doing.

    I had meant to ask if anyone has a canopy or shade we can erect to avoid the direct sunlight. Also, I will have bottles of water on hand as well as some munchies to keep us moving - but if anyone wants to help out by bringing stuff - just post what you are planning to bring here so we can keep in touch with it all.

    Should be able to make it. I was planning on hitting a Target or something on the way there. Anything in particular needed besides the stuff listed in the event description?
