Hi Everyone and welcome to another Pub Crawl update, with little over a month left to go time is now seriously running out to join up for the crawl â€“ in order to finalise t-shirt designs all cities and venues will need to have sent through their details to us [Pyssedas@yahoo.com] by Friday 5th May.
Again if you have friends anywhere around the world who might be interested please forward on this message to them! We are seriously trailing last yearâ€™s total despite having at least 23 cities involved.
What do I have to do to be involved?
I received a message the other day that some people were unsure what they had to do to be involved â€“ itâ€™s simple and its free â€“ here are the basic steps:
1. Decide you want to have a beer [or liquor of your choosing] on Saturday May 27th
2. Decide where you want to have it â€“ this could be a pub/bar, your house, local gutter etc
3. Send us the details of where you will be drinking and we will add you to the list
4. Huzzah â€“ that is all you have to do!
5. Decide you want to get in contact with all your South American friends to get them involved
6 new cities join up:
Welcome to Sydney and Orange in New South Wales and Perth in Western Australia, our first New Zealand City Auckland. Two more cities from the USA, Portland in Oregon joining us for the first time and we welcome back Seattle Washington which has a crawl of 5 pubs finishing at The Irish Emigrant.
T-shirt ordering time:
T-shirts are by no means mandatory and we are not seeking to make a profit from them. Once again this year the shirt design will be sent to anyone who wants it so that you can print it locally to you if you wish.
Last year through bulk ordering here in Australia we managed to produce shirts for the following prices [These included postage to wherever you are in the world] $22 Australian, $18 US, 10 English pounds, 14 Euros. This is indicative only at the moment as it will depend on how many order we get, and of course on exchange rates. Please let us know ASAP if you are interested in getting a shirt!
Melbourne Crawl requests loan of Carlton Draught Horses:
For reasons lost in the mists of time, the Melbourne leg of the crawl traditionally carries a potted fig plant around. As the fig has grown over the years it is now too big to be easily carried â€“ to help out with this problem, one crawl member has written to CUB asking if we can borrow their draught horses and cart on the day â€“ text and updates of CUB responses can be found on the forum
If you havenâ€™t yet done so why not check out the Pub Crawl forum, http://www.pyssedas.com/forum/forum.asp?FORUM_ID=2
it is full of useful threads to organise the local legs of your crawl. For example, people coming on the Melbourne leg of the crawl are asked to RSVP there!
OK- if you have made it this far through the update you must be reasonably keen â€“ once again, please take the time to let a couple of your friends know about the crawl â€“ the more who are involved the more fun it is for everyone. If there is anything we can do to help you out with this please feel free to get in contact.
