    Jan 3, 2013, 7:49 AM - 2013 Toronto Prop Party #1

    Last minute stuff
    -June11/13

    -All exhibitors have now been allocated their tables.

    -If any one has any questions at all....I mean any questions at all....I mean....any...questions...at all.
    Just shoot me, John or Mike a PM.....ASAP.

    Exhibitor Accessability
    We have changed rooms this year, but you can pull up close to the doors for the Convention Centre entrance. For those bringing 'large' display items please let us now ASAP.

    Safety and Security of your stuff
    This year we have a much larger room. It seemed that way until we started moving table around. We also may have much more people attending this year and many of them may be from outside the RPF or the 'known' community. We strongly remind you to keep on eye on your tables at all times if you feel uncomfortable. If anyone needs help at their tables, also let me know right away.

    Buying and Trading
    Strongly encouraged, please bring stuff you want to trade or show off. Many regular members already know this.

    __________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ _

    ****UPDATE****
    -June1/13

    - Those who want table space, make sure to confirm with John ASAP
    - Those wanting to donate any prizes, please advise myself or John as to the nature of the 'item' and approximate dollar value.
    - Those wanting to do 30-60 minute demos on any subject, also please contact us ASAP.

    2 weeks left now, wow it creeps up fast doesn't it?

    The time has come to begin the planning for this years prop party.

    All updates will be made in the 1st post so expect it to be edited as the planning evolves.

    I am not up to snuff on all the conventions around that time of year.
    Ive listed the major ones starting from April 2013 to the end of August 2013

    ----------------------------------------
    Apr13 Ad Astra
    May24-26 Anime North
    Jun22 - Can't Stop The Serenity
    Jul? Polaris finished?
    Jul26-28 - ConBravo
    Aug23-26 Fan Expo
    -----------------------------------------


    Planned Improvements

    Admission of $10
    I want to make sure that the admission fee will be no higher than $10 per adult and children will be free.

    Location
    Same location but in a larger room.

    Raffle
    The raffle will probably work a little differently this year. Prizes will be given detailed descriptions in advance with details of who donated them, how they were made and their approximate value.

    Also, each prize will have its own ticket box. Example, 10 prizes, 10 ticket boxes. That way we can feel more comfortable that we can increase our individual odds of winning the prize we want.

    Its too soon to know how many prizes we will have but I am sure they will be great and there will be no last minute additions to throw anyone off(like last year-sorry about that).
    **updated June11/13
    **see website for prize details.

    Silent Auction
    We may also be having a silent auction to help generate money for the event.

    Food
    The plan will be to sell food tickets. Well have the usual pizza plus I would also like to do sandwiches. I just want to ensure everyone actually gets a chance to eat something. Last year there was definitely NOT enough pizza. The challenge is always guessing how many people will be attending.

    Group Photo
    Will be planned and scheduled. Last year we forgot all about it.

    Demonstrations/live builds
    Demonstrations were a nice addition to last years party. They will be scheduled for 30-45 minutes each.

    Features

    - BTTF Delorean Time Machine
    - Knight Rider KITT
    - RC R2D2


    Please give me your feedback.

    June/July works for me. Should be good for just about any date in those months.

    I like the idea of the ticket bowls as well. Lets one load up on a prize they really want!

    I'll of course be good for a prize donation or two. Maybe a Hellboy Book this time.

    Was thinking about it and June is probably better than July. More people still at home because kids are in school.

    Yep. I still think a lot of people don't use the main index page at all.

    You'll get much more input with a PM linking to this thread.

    Any June or July date is good for me. Plus Jeff and I will come up with a prize or two. Maybe even a hero Stargate Atlantis Wraith pistol with some of my electronics inside...

    All sounds great. I'm probably more available in June than July.

    A thought on tickets. Maybe offer advance tickets for slightly less. ie 10 in advance, 15 at the door. and do it through eventbright or something. then you can possibly get a better count for attendance. I'm happy to help set that up, I have an account and do tons of events with eventbright. FITC on Eventbrite
