ApolloCon: Call for Street Team help

Posted by starcat_jewel on 2014.05.31 at 21:04
It's getting close to ApolloCon, and that means the Street Team needs to start distributing flyers around the city. If you don't have any idea where to start, I have maps. :-) I can meet you to hand off flyers, just let me know when and where.

Inside 610: (I'm doing this, but I wouldn't say no to some help)

Heights area

Montrose / Westheimer area

Rice / West U. area

Downtown Houston

River Oaks / Galleria area

Meyerland

Outside 610: (I really need help with these)

North Houston

West / Northwest Houston

Southwest Houston

South Houston

East Houston


Color codes for the markers: Blue = not done yet; Green = flyers have been left; Red = don't ask (reason noted); Yellow = temporarily unavailable. I'll need to know where you've left flyers so that I can update the map. If you come across any other places that are willing to take flyers, let me know and I'll add them.

Time to Dance

It's hard to stop rebels that time travel.
But we at the time council pride ourselves on doing just that.

Get ready for the ApolloCon Saturday Night Dance

“Oh sorry small town preacher from the Midwest! Is there a law against dancing?”

The Dance is brought to you by ApolloCon and DJ HawZ and his Space Monkeys, Drunken Pirates, Slave Labor!?!?

Kevin “Sprinkles” Mallory
Sam “Neck Beard” Whittenton
Erika “Madame Hobbit“ Aguirre
Thom “Seamus” Reis

We are here for your safety and your “enjoyment.”

The Dance is Overwritten (Underwritten seems such a downer) by ApolloCon.

“We were talking about dancing.”
“It didn't feel like dancing.”
“Actually, Doctor, I thought Jack might like this dance. “
“Doesn't the universe implode or something if you dance?”
“Relax. He's a fifty-first century guy. He's just a bit more flexible when it comes to 'dancing'.”

If the Doctor can dance, then so can you.

Afraid to dance? Ask the DJ to dance first and you’ll get to see a spastic monkey with no rhythm dance.

Only dance to a certain song? Hey, I might have that song. If I don’t and you ask early enough I can have it for you. Have it on you (CD/MP3/iWhatever) I can play it for you.

The Dance is for you, all of you. This is your chance to let loose, enjoy life and be yourself.

What will be played at the Dance?

Better question is “What won’t be played?”

Can you play something I can dance to?

No, probably not. It’ll just be 6 hours of the theme from Full House mixed with Tibetan throat singing interspersed with John Cage’s 4’33”.

Are you serious?

Do you feel lucky? Will do ya?

Just remember this:

“Happiness. Love, laughter, friendship, purpose, and a dance.”

Or something like that.

The Dance is on June 22nd after the Masquerade in the Seattle Ballroom. It’s supposed to start at “8pm” but its starts the moment I’m on stage and the music is playing and goes until… I have been advised by my lawyer to plead the 5th.


Some of you have told us, “The only thing missing from ApolloCon is one of your legendary ApolloCon room parties.” Well, since it's your ApolloCon, we listened...

This year, for the first time ever, there will be an ApolloCon room party at ApolloCon! So, don't miss it—Friday night, June 21. Watch for flyers—or possibly aliens—at the con for location and time.

And we bet you're thinking, “Well, if I'd have known that, I'd have booked a room at ApolloCon, so I could stay late, but ALAS, the deadline for reserving a room has passed!” We're way ahead of you...

The deadline to book your room has been extended to Friday, June 14.

So GET A ROOM!! (http://www.apollocon.org/hotel.html) And we'll see you at ApolloCon, June 21-23!

Candace Pulleine

Posted by kgkofmel on 2012.06.17 at 23:43
Friends of Fandom/Houston Science Fiction Association is saddened by the death of Candace Pulleine, long-time Houston fan, past President and Director Emeritus of FoF/HSFA, founder of RevelCon, and ApolloCon 2012 Fan Guest of Honor.

Candace was a great fan with a great heart, and a huge love for SF, media, fandom, and the creative work of fans in all media. Her efforts on behalf of the fandom community in Houston spanned decades, and included organizations, publications, and cons. She was widely known and was widely loved.

The impact and influence that Candace had on Houston fandom is both wide and deep; it cannot be overestimated. Her passing is a loss to many individuals, and to many of the communities that make up Houston Fandom. Although her state of health prevented her from being as involved as she would have liked, Candace nevertheless was influential in the creation of ApolloCon, and we were excited about honoring her as our Fan Guest this year.

We will miss Candace. Our thoughts are with her friends and family at this sad time. Although she will not be there with us, we will honor her spirit and carry on in the organization of which she was a such a key part.

Regards,

Mark B. Hall
President
Friends of Fandom/HSFA

ApolloCon flyering help needed

Posted by starcat_jewel on 2012.06.11 at 23:40
Current Mood: busy
If you've thought about distributing some flyers but don't have any idea where to start, I have maps. :-) I can meet you to hand off flyers, just let me know when and where. Inside 610: (I'm doing this, but I wouldn't say no to some help)

Heights area (I've covered most of this)

Montrose / Westheimer area (I've done some but not all of this)

Rice / West U. area (I've covered most of this too)

River Oaks / Westheimer area (I've done some but not all of this)

Downtown Houston

River Oaks / Galleria area (everything here is done except Micro Center)

Meyerland

Outside 610: (I really need help with these except where noted)

North Houston (Clif and Doug are working on this)

West / Northwest Houston (Doug may take some of this)
Southwest Houston

South Houston (James K. will be working on Clear Lake)

East Houston

Color codes for the markers: Blue = not done yet; Green = flyers have been left; Red = don't ask (reason noted); Yellow = temporarily unavailable. I'll need to know where you've left flyers so that I can update the map. If you come across any other places that are willing to take flyers, let me know and I'll add them. Please help -- we're running out of time, and I'll be gone from Thursday thru Monday!

ETA: This call for help just got more urgent, as my car is temporarily non-functional. I can't drive Russ' car because it's a stick, and the BHV needs both license and inspection stickers. If you can take some flyers, even just a few to your workplace, please contact me.
