i sent a letter idea via pm and gave a few other ideas at the bottom. phurby said that i should bring one of them up here to see what everyone thought so here goes....
in the decription of the "letter body" phurby posted, it asks for you to tell what service your booth would be providing the fans. while our main effort is to give the a site to see and show them our hobby and support for starwars, i was thinking that we could have a raffle at the end of the convention. we could hand out tickets, or even sale them if you guys wanted and mabey give the proceeds to charitey or somthing, and at the end of the convention have a drawing. pick 10 or so people as winners and those people can pick a piece from the dio to take home with them. we could draw say 5 tickets for just a figure or 2, 3 tickets for a figure & vehicle and the last 2 could be for a building, pices of the landscape, figures or what ever they wanted.
we couls also do a set couple of prizes, like have a display of a couple custom figures made by some of our customizers, some real wow customs, and have a seperat drawinf for those.
this seems to me to be a selling point for the letter to get a "free booth". not only are we giving the fans a site to see and an introduction to our customizing communitiy,but we are providing a fun event for the fans to participate in and possibly win somthing and if we did decide to charge for the raffle tickets, even $1.00, and give it to chariety, that would be another great selling point for us inthis letter.
plus we need to figure out what to do with the entire set up after the convetion any how!
so what do youguys think???
