Okay, so here is where we stand as of now, no AR chapter exist and we have to start from scratch. So with that being said, I've sent a few e-mails off to various places seeing about doing a charity event WITHOUT the ZS name attached. I also have some other ideas I"ll mention below and I'll add to the list as more ideas come in. Basically we have to do the entire process over. So First off I need at least two others that can be "leaders" so we can have an official person to do the required paperwork. I am hoping this isn't too much, but hey, I can try right. My wife said she would sign up as well, but that puts two people from the same household and I would really like to see it spread out across the state so we hopefully won't have our leadership MIA again. We'll also set it up so if someone is MIA for a extended period of time and does not participate, we remove that person from the leadership role and assign someone else from the AR board.
Some ideas for Charity event:
- CarWash somewhere to raise money for charity:
- "Zombie" night at a movie theater/s and donate money to charity
- host a general Disaster Awareness event and accept donations. This could be a geocaching event to get tons of people to come and learn about this
- Movie night at Vino's in LR
On the Geocaching event, it may be worthwhile to include some of our events as a geocaching event to show up on the huge geocaching.com website and include the huge base of geocachers we have here in AR. I have talked some earthquake preparedness on the AR geocaching forums (http://www.arkgeocaching.org
" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;) and it was a decent topic and was well received.
Please let me know more ideas to add to the list and if you want to be a "leader" or "Member" The difference is one has some responsibility and the latter does not.
