I have very exciting news. The Vans Warped Tour (the largest
traveling rock tour in the nation) has approved the Free State
Project as a non-profit vendor. That means we can get 4 people in
for free, a few chairs, a table, and a tent. It is very important to
have at least a couple people at the table for the whole day. I am
the Vans contact on this.
We are onboard in Buffalo, NY on 7/26, Pittsburgh, PA on 8/1, and
Boston, MA on 8/15. Vans shows feature top punk, metal, and rock
bands. They are attended by 10,000s of people. The average age
ranges from 14-24, although parents come with many of the younger
kids. The people attending these shows are already used to snow and
cold climates, so that should not be a big problem with recruiting.
Also, many of these people like causes and many of the bands sing
about joining causes. This is a prime recruiting opportunity.
I am in the process of gathering materials to give out. I'm working
on various flyers, stickers, bumper stickers, and even matches.
However, I need manpower to help. Please, my brothers and sister,
join me and show the world what we FSP can do. I'll be at the
Buffalo show. Please volunteer for the show nearest you. If you
have any questions, please ask them in this group or email me.
