03/16/2013: Sharing of the Green Parade

Post  Ginger Spite on Wed Jan 23, 2013 11:32 am

The Missfits are signed up for the WJBC Sharing of the Green Parade in Uptown Normal. It will be Saturday, March 16 at 1:00 pm. So line up will be probably around 11 - 12. This parade was a lot of fun, and then a bunch of us got beer or Strongbow at Maggie's afterwards! So save the date! I will post a sign up and more details as I get them.

If anyone has a truck that we could decorate with signs and stuff for the parade, that would be awesome!

Should we ask Jerm if he wants to use his truck since it's got our logo and what not on it?

Not to be a pain in the rumpus, but is there going to be a sign up? Or should we just plan that all the cool kids will be there? alien (yes I know this is an alien, but he's green so he's appropriate!)

Thanks!

I was just about to post more details, Cirque! So here they are:

- Date: Saturday, March 16th

- Line up begins at noon, and we should meet at the First Methodist Church parking lot in Uptown Normal like last year and we'll get assigned our spot from there, which will be along College or School streets. The address is 211 N. School Street, Normal, IL 61761. Hopefully like last year, there will be parking for parade participants near there. It seems like this will be pretty informal, so we will just need to play it by ear and go where they tell us to go. I'll try to get there by 11:45ish.

- The parade will begin at 1:00. The route itself is basically through Uptown Normal, so it's a pretty short route. If it's like last year, it will be pretty slow moving as well. No matter, though, this will give us more time to hand out fliers and throw candy and greet fans!

- Like always we will need candy. So even if you can't skate in the parade that day, please bring candy! I will take it at practice until the parade!

Here's the sign up: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60B0B45A5AF2F4-sharing

I wish I could come to this. Last year I was going to skate in the Peoria parade, but I let a skater borrow them since hers were broken at the time. Anyway, I'll be at work and wishing I could be there with you. If anyone is interested, beads are super popular with the children at parades, so to get some attention drawn to you, someone could try ordering a bulk order of beads and hopefully they'd get here before the parade weekend. And anyone who is thinking about signing up, just a fair warning. I saw three Peoria vets eat it super hard last year from various things in the road. You do have to be sober to skate, obviously, but wearing all your gear is not required, but be mindful that there are a lot of things that will be potential trip hazards in the road. Wear as much gear as you feel comfortable with, but please be careful. I don't want to see any MissFits hurt because of a stupid piece of candy or beer can. That's my PSA. Back to normal business.

Yes wearing all gear is required!!

Also if I can sit in the truck I'm totally still in, that's like bed rest right?!?

If you can't attend the parade, bring your candy donations this week! I will take them either Monday or Wednesday. This will even count for PR/Fundraising event credit!

Hi All! Unfortunately, I have to fly home for my aunt's funeral this weekend, so I will not be at the parade. Thankfully, Lynn will be running everything the day of the parade, so no worries there. The plan is still the same. Line up begins at noon at the First Methodist Church Parking Lot, and there are two parking lots nearby which you will be able to park near the intersection of School and Locust Street. Those also should be marked!

There is still plenty of room to sign up! Also if you have candy donations please contact either Lynn or me. I will be flying out Friday morning, though, contact me by tomorrow if you want to drop off candy. I will be working at the Old BJHS all day tomorrow, so just let me know. If you want to drop of candy Friday, you will have to contact Lynn.

Have so much fun, everyone, and also drink a Strongbow after the parade at Maggie's for me!

Also, I have Bates' karaoke machine we're gonna try to hook up so we can blast from the back of the truck and talk about the bout (and how awesome we are!) So Camp, feel like yelling into a pink mic for the duration of the parade!? Very Happy

Can we hand out other things besides candy? Like, say my job gave me a shitload of store-bought cookies, and I wanted to individually bag them up and hand them out (rawrbviously, I wouldn't be chucking them at the children, just passing them out). I was thinking about stapling flyers to the baggies or something, too. Is this ok?
