URGENT: Posters & Flyer distribution - WE NEED YOUR HELP

Post by lucas » Mon Jan 10, 2005 11:49 pm

Crew,

We -really- need your help over the next couple of days. So much work has been put into this event, now's the time to make sure it pays off.

[ Flyers ]
Around lunch time tomorrow (Tuesday) BreaksRBest (Glenn) will be taking delivery of over 2000 flyers at his office.
If you are able to distribute flyers please collect some from him:
8 Balmoral Place, South Yarra.
0411 808 328

[ Posters ]
Some time tomorrow or Wednesday morning Friday (Lucie) will be taking delivery of 1000 A3 posters.
If you are able to put these in a good location, please arrange to collect them from her.
9 Dundas Lane, Albert Park.
9682 4800

If anyone is not able to pick up posters/flyers, please post your address here and we will see if they can be somehow delivered to you.
No promises though as we are running out of time.

[ Areas in Need ]
It seems that the Fitzroy (Brunswick St, Smith St) and St Kilda (Fitzroy St, Acland St) areas are in need of some serious promotion.
Please, if you are able to distribute flyers/posters in these areas we could really do with your help.
Particular attention is required around the backpacker hostels in St Kilda.

[ Other Areas to Target ]
City
Chapel St
Chaddy
Southland

We can't have enough feet on the ground between now and Friday, so if you could donate some spare time we will be eternally grateful.

Ani and I are happy to poster/flyer bomb Acland/Fitzroy streets on Wednesday - if anyone else can do it Tuesday though that would be obviously be preferrable - the earlier the better ;)

Southland and Chaddy shops (that were up for it) are postered, though they could use flyers - happy to do that too. Should be able to do that Tuesday.

I will be at DMC tomorrow, I'll collect some posters / flyers from BRB and they'll be in the shop.

I'll try and do a quick bomb at lunch though always prooves impossible when no-one can mind the shop.

Let's do this people.

would be happy to go down brunswick and smith streets this afternoon. only problem is i have no transport and work in the city. would be ideal if i could meet someone after work in the city or pick them up from some where. just work round the corner from e55 so could maybe pick them up from there?

Happy to do wherever, I live close to Chapel and can also do the CBD if required.

Have already visited a number of relevant stores at Melbourne Central and all have been happy to display material.

I still haven't got the flyers yet, just called them and they should be ready in the next couple of hours.

I'll post again when I have 'em


Nik, could you possibly do a run to St Kilda?? I don't think there's anything at all there. especially places like Backpacker hostels.

Does anyone know the name of that really fancy backpacker place that just opened in St Kilda?

Is there any way you could swing by Glenn's work in South Yarra? I think he was taking delivery of more flyers this arvo.

PM me if you need his phone number.

BRB, do you know what time tomorrow morning?

If it's early-ish I might be able to come over Sth Yarra before work. will be a bit of a mission though so will need a definite time.

I have 1000 posters in the AMAD office now...

You know I'm doing all I can to help with the show but I simply cannot leave the office during business hours to put posters up right now with my work load :(

So I need people to help get these out!

I'll take 500 home to Windsor so that if people find it easier to pick them up from there they can :)

Eskay and I have just bombed fitzroy st, the beach, and acland st with flyers, and the few posters I had left. It really won't hurt if some people want to hand out flyers again tonight, tomorrow and even friday, if you have the time.

Also, POW were painting their board, and we are up :D

brb, we only had like 2 or 3 a4's left. We handed out flyers, and left some in some shops. But mostly gave to passers by and the people sunbaking on the beach...

(put 2 posters in a backpacker place, 1 on fitzroy st, and one in a restaurant in Acland St)
