We need help planning the first ever BlueNC "dinner" ... tentatively called The BlueNC Bloggers Barbecue Bash.
This topic came up in the Vance-Aycock Dinner renaming discussion, and I jumped on it. This is something I've been wanting to do for a long time. A real-life political get-together of the extended BlueNC community: bloggers, lurkers, guests, media, friends, family, you name it.
I'm happy to host the event here in Chapel Hill. I'll also arrange the catering (barbecue, of course) and some live music. But I'd really like some help making it happen. For example, we'll need to choose a good date where attendance will be high and it won't rain. We'll want to extend invitations, especially to candidates, other bloggers and media. We'll need staffing for the gate to collect money (I'm thinking $10 per person, free for kids). And all the other stuff.
Who wants to take charge? Who can help?
PS This would also be a very good time to get our BlueNC business card act together. I know I've been promising to do it forever, but I'm not a graphic designer and all my designer friends are sick of me asking them to help. Maybe someone could take charge of that project too? We've agreed to pay for 50-100 personalized cards for anyone who wants them.
