I'm still not 100% sure that I will be attending the Kansas City Warped Tour this year, but if I do go, I'd be happy to run the table there.

There is a slight catch though... I was originaly planning on going there more to sell merch from my webcomic than anything else. Would it be any kind of a conflict if I did both?

edit: If I do go, Paul Tripp, who is also a FSP liaison will help run the table as well.

I'll be in Kansas City along with at least one other person.  I hope to see you there.

I can work the San Francisco stop.  I sent you a PM on the FTL board as well.

If you are willing to move from your home to New Hampshire, surely you can talk at least one person every six months into doing the same.

Update June 16th 2006:

Roycerson, thanks for volunteering for Kansas City.  I hope you have fun in a few days.  Ward, I’ll talk to you at Porcfest about the NJ stop.  And Daniel, thanks for volunteering to help with the San Francisco table.

The 6/23 St. Petersburg stop looks to be confirmed, so I changed it to blue for confirmed.  Also, we found a sympathetic table at the 6/28 Atlanta stop that will feature the wicked awesome FSP bookmarks.  Thank the guys at the Libertarian Party of Georgia and http://www.ThinkLibertarian.com for that!

Remember, we are still looking for volunteers at stops (mostly) from mid-July until the Tour ends near mid-August.  Feel free to tell anyone you know about this opportunity!

The opportunity for me to have time for the Phoenix, Arizona stop just opened up for me. I sent you an email. If you can still use volunteers for that stop, message me back or call me ASAP so that I can plan on going. (please  :))

I worked the Kansas City show yesterday.  We signed up 4 FSP members and handed out a lot of FSP and FTL fliers.
Our biggest giveaway item were our FSP matchbooks so we wrote something about Free Talk Live inside all of them.

More for the corner! ;)  Can we have permission to keep these images and use them any way we like?  That would include permission from any of the people *in* the pictures.  Please email me at president@freestateproject.org and let me know.

Roycerson, you and your crew rock!  Thank you so much for doing that, and extra thanks for providing tangible evidence!  It's very encouraging to see other volunteers out there working to make this thing happen.

Here is a tiny 6/21 Nashville blurb-

3 new Members and 5 new Friends.  I am not sure how committed all of the Friends are, though.  I'll be making an excel sheet to make it easy for people to sign up for our monthly newsletter and/or myspace. 

It was hot, dusty, and there was a ton of great music. 

Here is Joseph’s blog about it, along with a picture I took.  We were running low on supplies when I took the picture.

Sounds good.  It's cool that you learned about the FSP from the link on the Warped Tour website.

In St. Louis we got 2 new members and 6 friends.  I consider that a considerable improvement over KC  because we got a lot less traffic where we were located.  We were close to one stage but that stage was seperated from the rest of the venue.  The other stages being arranged in a circularish pattern, ours was in an offshoot so that the traffic we got was more likely to be those that had a destination while the meanderers hung around the main thoroughfares. 

Some things that worked well:
  I taped copies of all our flyers to the table and people would read them as they walked by even when it was far too loud to talk.  It was a lot of fun to watch people as they read the info and see their reactions as they got to certain parts.  It's completely foreign to me how some people are intested in the words liberty and freedom but get completely turned off when it gets to the part about small government and low taxes. 




We also had a myfriends sign up sheet with over thirty signatures.  In some cases I think the myspace sheet prevented further discussion because people would sign it and, relying on the newsletter they'd be recieving, not be interested in further conversation at that time.



The good part about being away from the action is I got the oppurtunity to have several good conversations with socialists and freedom lovers alike.  One guy selling his bands homemade CD's told me he likes high taxes.  My suspicion is that he was not reporting his days cash income to the IRS.  I also had a good long conversation with a libertarian who voted republican until the last presidential election when he went with Badnarik having concluded the GOP is no longer the lesser of the two evils and is now just evil.  He hadn't heard of the FSP in a couple of years and was very interested in how it's going.  I hope to see him soon on this forum.

It was long day.  I left Lee's Summit, MO at 4:00am and got back at 2:am after dropping off the others in Kansas.  Anti-Flag played right in front of me and I got a real good crowdsurfing shot from my spot at the booth with the help of digital zoom and some photo editing.



After the Non-Profit area shut down we went back in and chatted with Helmet for awhile.  Watched some bands I'd never heard of as well as Joan Jett and NoFX before driving back across Missouri.

For those of you who are in the neighborhood of one of these stops and aren't volunteering.....why not?  The KC show cost me for two concerts (and these are big multi stage shows with lots of popular bands) I'm out a total of 1 black ink cartridge 1yellow (FTL Logo) cartridge and 1/3rd of my other colors (copies of flyers).  2 tanks of gas and 6 dollars for a well-deserved funnel cake.  The KC show was only 1/3rd a tank of gas and half the ink.  Punk isn't my thing my but I have a great time anyway.  NoFX had a trumpet!  That's what punk needs.  More brass instruments;D

Here's more pictures:

Lisa got us a whole case of Monster from the Monster people!!!  That's like a 50 dollar donation!






This guy liked the porcupince flag so much he took a picture.  I was so happy to see him liking the flag.  I took one too.
