PF thread on 4chan last night, obviously not created by me. Seems to have a member stating they are a member.
Here is the specific post: https://boards.4chan.org/pol/thread/347479747/#p347480403
Just sharing, I don't think it is that big of a deal.
This is a scripted message. An important announcement has just been posted in the #announcements channel. Please review it in detail and follow the instructions given. If we have not conversed recently (or since the last scripted message), give me an update on your organizing and any questions or matters I can assist with. Thank you.
Hey Re. the posters. You mentioned that John WA (and possibly others) orderd "alot" of posters. Do you have numbers on that? Say for example if John WA ordered 5 poster kits, I can pack them up into a single box which will save space for me. LMK if there is anything like that I can do to save space for me and them on the way home.
I will have 20 sets of posters and 10 banner stencil sets, maybe more ready and all packed up for ya.
4 for John.
Ok i will pack those separately. Thanks for that it helps me save space.
I am shipping John's to him.
We can figure out shipping since he prepaid you.
Still tons of posters and stencils coming with me. Gonna be epic. I got this printer just cranking.
Hey on another note. Do you live near Billy M? Or see him frequently?
Was gonna send a gift for him.
Final question. Ben MD said he ordered posters, never got the first order snd ordered another. Do you have 2 pending for him?
I see Billy somewhat often. I could certainly make an effort to see him not too long after December's event.
I would have to check on Ben. I could get you a tally of all the pending orders including posters but the safest bet is to just bring plenty.
Re. Billy's gift. I am gonna need to ship it to him it turns out. Anyway thanks for offering.
Re. Posters. There will be plenty for sure. Just wanted to bring that one forward to you to check out.
Hey do you know the earliest time people will be at the camp for the event on Friday? I might be getting there pretty early.
I likely won't camp out but i do need to drop all the posters and stuff off.
Also you said something about a phone being sent to me. Just FYI i didn't receive it.
Noon on Friday.
Phone has not been mailed yet.
Probably best to not mail the phone then. Might not make it here.
Re. Camp. Perfect i will get the address when needed next Friday if that is cool.
If it's sent Priority 2-Day it should arrive just fine.
The checkpoint address will be released 72hrs in advance.
I am leaving Tuesday because i have another stop beforehand on the way there. So if it isn't here by then it won't make it.
Vincent TX will be present to give it to you in person.
Vincent is confused as to how we're going to get you some physical items for the event.
You will need to visit camp at some point to deliver and exchange supplies, right?
Yep but i plan to do that during the day Friday. Will your group be there yet? Sometimes you guys arrive in the middle of the night.
You will have between 6 a.m. and 12 noon to visit camp on Saturday, does no time within work?
If that is the only way then sure. I was planning on getting hotel super close to the event location, renting a bike and being there most of the morning. See what changes and who comes / goes.
Ideally, you swing by early just after or at Roll Call at 6 a.m. I assumed you'd have a rental car and that would be emergency transport in case anyone had a medical emergency and needed to be transported from the march.
Another problem there. They have discontinued 1-way rentals. Or they want $1200+ for 4 days. It is insanity. But i will have my truck nearby.
I thought you were flying. If you have any vehicle present that is more than enough.
I have to deliver a car to NC. It has turned into one of the most F'd up plans i have had to do. But i promised to do it and i am gonna get the damn car there no matter what. So we are taking 2 cars down, and coming back with 1. Painful.
Canceling 1 way rentals is crazyland. But 3 of 4 companies have done it and the other wants to rape you on price.
So 2x the gas, 2x the tolls one way for us.
Anyway Wolf will be along too, maybe i can drop him off at camp in the morning if you can use him for something. He can't drive a truck but can do anything else.
So sure i will head up to camp on Sat. morning at 6:30ish.
I messaged Vincent a confirmation. We wi be good to go.
Here is the rough timetable of the day. Camp is 1.5hrs from the city.
Ok. I may get a hotel closer to camp then or just camp. Since i found out i have to bring my truck yesterday because of this rental stuff, i can pack a ton more stuff. I will talk to wolf and see what he wants to do.
Are there showers at this camp? (not a holocaust joke)?
There's a field, a forest, and some port-a-toilets.
Hey re. posters and stencils.
Prices on supplies are going nuts. I paid $120 for a cutting blade, that was $85 last year. Paper and Ink going up too, everything across the board.
So that said, if it was me, I would up the prices on this stuff. I do this for the org, I don't look to get paid, but trust me the costs and effort is significant and climbing.
So If I was you, I would look at a price increase after the event direct sales.
Standard Poster Kit - $50 without shipping
Stencil Kit - $30 without shipping
You should also look at your shipping costs, that is going through the roof too, but I will leave that to you.
Anyway just wanted to get that out there to you for you to think about. Hope you kids are having a great Thanksgiving holiday.
I'll get you some cash for the sets you're bringing, shipping, etc.
I don't want any cash. Just want you to get a fair price for them so you can then take that cash and use it to do more next level stuff for PF.
I do all this printing stuff to help spread the good word - free of charge.
What is the averaged out shipping fee?
$14 east, maybe like $25+ west. But i am in small town WI so your rates from a big hub city will be different.
The prices going west have gone way up it seems.
You weren't actually in Milwaukee were you?
I am just 90 mins north.
I was, is, and am.
Me and Mason stopped by Waukesha for the NJP picket protest of the courthouse, because Media 2 Rise is covering it, and Mason is my ticket to get to DC two or three days early for scouting since we're leaving on Tuesday.
So I helped M2R out and NJP by taking pictures video and questions of the protest.
Ha ha well you gotta give some notice. I have alot to do before i leave on Tuesday as well.
I only had a day's notice myself.
Check that out if you have extra time in DC. Looks cool.
Well i hope you guys are enjoying yourselves down there. Just got cold here so hopefully you brought a coat. The Milwaukee area sucks, not much redeeming there to see. Good german food though.
If you are bored down there check out the Botanical Gardens, "the domes", they are peaceful and relaxing. That is all that is good in Milwaukee. :)
Plenty to see! I am going to try to visit the memorials in downtown, and do some activism, but the current tempo includes some media stuff regarding the two big stories to come out of the area.
Now that it is cold, the riffraff is mostly indoors so you should be fine out stickering.
I am the riffraff.
To some people... lol. But you know what i mean. It is a rough town, depressing place.
Same with Kenosha, hopeless place.
Like many Midwestern towns that lost their big employer and nothing ever really returned. Milwaukee still has beer though.
If you drank, well it is the perfect town. But you probably aren't looking for that. Sprecher brewery has the best soda though, good food too. Check that out.
Already picked up some of that Maple Root Beer at the local corner store. Very nice.
Yeah Sprecher is good. Lakefront Brewery is good too, they have a restaurant too. Check that out.
Other than that, going to stop by the county courthouse, public library downtown, take some architectural pictures, sticker a bunch, and help Mason and Lucca with another day or two of videography before we head out. Then I'll take however much time we have in DC to run through the parking lots, walking route, etc. Not as fun, but necessary.
There is a "Fonz" statue downtown.
Way before your time.
If you want to stir up trouble, Fuel Cafe is the local anarchist coffee shop. We stickered it when first joined, they cried on twitter for days.
Well scratch that idea, Fuel Cafe is now a huge and corporate coffee shop downtown. Lol how the anarchists change when they get money.
I worked a while at Starbucks yesterday, so who knows. I've got a strict timeline, we'll see.
If you need posters or a banner or anything feel free to stop up here and grab what you need.
How many banners do you have? Anything that couldn't be brought to the day of the event?
Like pro printed ones? Or the canvas ones we hang and leave?
We should already have the two printed, pole attached, marching banners that we need.
So I was asking about the painted banners.
I have plenty of canvas, paint and some stencils. That said i have no time to make any. If youbwanted to you are welcome to my supplies and shop.
Dtown Milwaukee is very beautiful.
Reminds me a lot of Chicago.
Got tons more, Sons of Columbia is going to be very representative of good ole Wisconsin
