Hi friends - This might not seem like a big deal… but I’m sitting here particularly proud of making/embedding a motion graphic video of some sting rays into our email header at only 2MB! It looks very good, I don’t care what anyone says, it’s pretty and functional and I like it.
Ok on to things you may care about. For those of you not regularly on this email, I send this note before each event with ALL of the details and participants contributing in some way THIS month. This includes our regular volunteer team plus partners, musicians, designers, features, everyone contributing in some way. If the details below are incorrect. Please reply and tell me. My goal isn’t to not make mistakes, they happen, we find them, we fix them. If there is a question mark listed we need some help, please reply and tell me. If there’s something missing or you have an idea of something you’d like to do (YES!), please reply and tell me. This system seems to work pretty efficiently at avoiding having a meeting to have a meeting… I dislike meetings, so do all of you. When we get together let's make it fun… if at some point this system fails, (ahem) please reply and tell me :-)
We have room for ONE more Espresso Pitch. I’d love to hear from somebody who can talk about that new Lake Erie Bill of Rights. It’s on topic, and holy crap is it interesting. Any leads out there on an environmental lawyer looking to represent cases on behalf of the lake?
THIS EVENT IS ALREADY SOLD OUT. and a dozen on the waitlist (which I predicted, we have a small venue this month) but it’s going to be epic, and unique, and I’m very excited you all get to be there. If you got locked out, obviously we’ll push forward any of our team members and contributors so you can be there to help make this happen.
With love and affection,
