People heading to Pride next weekend please read!

Post by Captain Havoc » Thu May 30, 2013 9:10 pm

Hi guys!

This is a shout out to anyone planning on heading to Pride on June 15th (Saturday after next!). ARRG are going to be flyering at this and possibly even having a stall (oooh!). To make this fantastic and to reach as many people as possible, we really need your help – if you would be prepared to spend a bit of your day helping with flyer distribution or manning the stall and chatting to folks, drop me an email at amybaldwin3@gmail.com, or comment below.

We would be looking to meet up late morning-ish, probably around Holyrood car park – full details nearer the time.

Looking forward to hearing from loads of you soon :). Also, Marketing are still looking for people to take on flyering responsibilities as a committee role- if you're not on a committee yet, this is a pretty cool opportunity. Email me or marketing@arrg.co.uk if you're interested, and help get the propaganda team of awesome underway!

We thought not on skates as a general rule, because its primarily uphill really.

BUT if folk want to be on skates then that's awesome! Bash on.

We did hope people would wear ARRG tops wherever possible though :D

Whoops yeah, thanks Mo, duly edited. That would be me getting over-excited!

Thanks so much to everyone who has volunteered - this is going to be great! We will be meeting in Holyrood car park at 11.30am on Saturday June 15th- please wear something ARRGy if you can!

Just a last-minute shout-out and reminder that this is happening the day after tomorrow! :gbanana:

The march starts at 12.00, so we will be meeting in Holyrood car park at 11.30. The two people co-ordinating are Princess Die and Grrsula, so make a bee-line for them,or keep an eye out for everyone else wearing ARRG clobber! If you really can't find anyone give Grr a text on 07531075414.

We reckon the march will last for around an hour and a half – if you can't make it for the whole time that is no prob, but bear in mind that we will be heading to the pub/park afterwards :).

Please remember to deck yourself up in ARRG gear if you have any, we want to be really visible! A couple of people have mentioned the possibility of coming on skates – basically this is up to you, you are more than welcome to go for it but do bear in mind that it is going to be mostly uphill! We are hoping to do a fair bit of flyering in Bristo Square at the end of the parade, so if you really fancy some on-skate flyering action but don't want to skate up the Mile feel free to bring your skates along and getting kitted up once we arrive.

Looking forward to seeing lots of you there!

erm...with regards to a stall....i just noticed this. i am packing up all the arrg merch for ecdx and really have nothing spare apart from some random sized black t shirts. is there still going to be a stall? i could ALMOST rustle up window stickers but that's about it. sorry to come late to the party. for some reason i thought this was PRIDE London you were talking about.

We are sadly not getting a stall - blame the pride organisers who have apologised profusely, but were too late in getting back to me and sold all the stall space!

So no stall but that's okay as we can still flyer hardcore.
