What:
Free Comic Book Day
Where:
Heroes for Sale, 582 Karangahape Rd (opposite the petrol station and one shop away from Newton Rd)
When:
on the floor 10am til 5pm
Our tasks:
Collect for Kids-Can, be photo opportunities and mingle with attendees. We will be able to also advertise for the Rebel Legion and 501st.
We will essentially have the middle corridor formed by the comic shelves and comic cupboards and desk to work and be a star wars space. We are also being offered the very back of this large space for staging our own props or set pieces. The glass frame is just over 3m wide and 3m tall.
Other groups: There will be an artist and board games creators in the left side of the store and from 1pm there will be the Auckland Sci Fi club on the right. There will also be Auckland Libraries with a trolley of Star Wars novels that members of the library can borrow on site (bring your cards as well).
Prep time:
The doors will be open to get in to the shop at 8am, but not to the public. We also have the opportunity to store costumes and props overnight from Friday if it will make the morning commute easier and easier to set up any set pieces. Also earlier in the week if that would fit in better.
Ammenities:
Stu will cover parking if we arrive early at the the carpark just north along K Rd, if we can carpool this would be helpful. There are all day Saturday rates, please use this ($5). Or there may be some street parks available- some have time limits, please be careful.
There is a kitchenette at the back right we can use to relax in (best to sit as far back as possible as it is partially open) as well as some refreshments through the day. If the day is clear there is also a back balcony we could stage as an off show space.
Some on site storage on site in a locked room and in the kitchenette, please be mindful of the stock that is in both areas.
Two large toilets located back left (one m/f and diabled) at the back wall, these do open directly in to the store so it may be an idea to have a buddy system in place to use these and not crash into the public. There will be a table top game just in front and there is some screening from the comic shelves in the middle of the room.



This is classified as a mid level formal event, so preference is given to approved formal and informal costumes but I am able to approve costumes for the day for those who are not yet members Smile So send me a PM or reply here if you are interested and we can see what we can do.

Hey guys! So we have the opportunity to help support another local business this up and coming FCBD. This year there are Star Wars comics, yay!

Heroes for Sale have relocated and really want to make this a special day. I am meeting with Stu this week to really get an idea of what he wants but there is going to be room for display of our propoganda and props as well as photo opportunities. It sounds like a really fun day.

I am sharing all info with our sister group Outpost 42. Over there there is another event listed for FCBD but this just means we as a community can support two local businesses at the same time Smile

There will be facilities but no parking behind the shop but will be on the street (the shop will be open early for us to kit up).

Also fundraising for another children's charity so we can feel good about having fun again Wink

More details, and a proper timetable for events when I meet with Stu in person.

A successful day - the store was crowded with avid comic readers for the whole day, and we helped raise over $500 for Kids Can. Smile
