Hey everyone,
at the last Zombie Squad meeting we started throwing around some ideas for SZ Prepper Fest 2013 (working title). I was thinking of having a 1 full-day event on a Saturday or Sunday that is dedicated to all things prepper. I think we're aiming for late May/early June but that is negotiable.

Possible EVENTS:
- talks about survival skills/ experiences etc
- workshops on how to make stuff
- training (and possibly certification) in first aid/cpr (or in-field first aid)
- local bands to close out the evening
- what else?

Possible VENUES:
- Pittsburgh Ironworks (Bates St. in Oakland). This place has parking. There's a bar but it's secluded so people don't have to be >21 to enter. They have a large space with a stage as well as an area upstairs.
- art spaces downtown?
- others?

LOGISTICS questions
- does zs allow sponsoship from retailers? we could get vendors
- door cover?
- community members may be willing to talk/run workshops for free
- bands may play for free
- venue may allow us to do it for free (their profit comes from the bar)

I would really like to help make this thing happen and can't wait to hear more ideas!

~d

Thanks drdirx!!!

Feedback peeps? Maybe we need to post a poll? I am thinking June or July would be nice, but I'd like to see what other events are around and when. Bueller? Bueller??

I would try to make it if it was a Saturday during the day.

I would love to help out where I can. I've been wanting to be more active with the sector and this looks like lots of fun.
