Art Shanty harvest this weekend!

Postby metis » Thu Feb 12, 2009 6:21 pm

ok so pending safe ice (which it would seem tot be since they're' still open sat it seems) we're gonna try to save this thing. schedule:

sat 11am, hoot, theo, myself and anyone else foolish enough to help organizes my garage for an hour or two, (PM me for directions) clearing a space for this... whatever it is that hoot has found. possible scouting expedition to determine tool and transport needs afterwards. kittens and hot cocoa provided for those who help tidy. (the cocoa you can retain, the kittens i get to)

sunday, time marginally tbd, i assume mid morning, we start to dismantle this... http://antarcticshanty.blogspot.com/ in a reasonably organized fashion, and transport it's bits to my garage.

hoot, you're in charge of figuring out when we do this sunday. AND confirming with the folsk that this is still a go, and they didn't' decide that a liter of petrol and a zippo would be a more fitting finale for their project.

the fruits of our labour will belong to the group as far as i'm concerned should we want to use them to build a shanty next year, or do whatever with them, although i'm not certain i'll want them to live in the garage an entire year depending on what they pack down to.

I've tried to call and email my contact at the shanty but haven't heard from her yet. I'm trying to get ahold of her again tonight but I think that if she doesn't get back to me by 10 or so tomorrow night, we'll just have to call it off. There's no point in starting a two day project if it won't work out.

If you were thinking about helping out with this project, check back tomorrow evening for a status update.

So, it doesn't need rescuing?
Beer and pie?

That's a bummer. Hopefully we can still get involved in the ASP next year.

i'd love to do it next year. not only is it a lot of fun, but it would also give the group some great publicity.

once this year's event is wrapped up, i'll get ahold of the event organizer to get info on requirements, fees, timelines, etc.
