Fundraiser. We're mostly set with logistics, with the notable exception of food. Will circle back to food after the 4/29 signature gathering deadline.
Signature Gathering. Planning a signature push this weekend, to help Joe get on the ballot. Bellingham has the highest density, and the most food traffic. If you do door-to-door in Bellingham, you need to register with police dept. first.
Article 7 of Bellingham bylaws talks about door-to-door solicitation. Appears that it only applies to salespeople, and there's a specific exemption for political campaigns (114-7).
Meet at Joe's place @ 11:00am.
21:07 < Bluelustreak> Ahoy! 21:07 < srevilak> hi all 21:07 < srevilak> shall we get started, or give Jamie a few minutes? 21:08 < Kendra> Hi Everybody.

Want to maximize time there 21:44 < Joe> The closest Barnes and Nobles next to Bellingham is 26 miles and it doesn't get much foot traffic 21:44 < noe> I think we have an exception! 21:44 < Joe> I'd much rather hit a place like Walmart or whole foods 21:44 < Joe> or even another town for that matter 21:44 < Bluelustreak> Um... 21:44 < noe> check out 114-7 21:44 < Bluelustreak> Between Walmart and Market bsaket? 21:44 < Bluelustreak> its 20 minutes from my house 21:45 < Bluelustreak> 10 21:45 < Bluelustreak> 10 minutes 21:45 < noe> We should be excepted from registering because we are politicians campaigning. 21:45 < jokeefe> would think so 21:45 < Joe> Thanks srevilak 21:45 < srevilak> noe: yes.

Anyone on it should talk it up. 21:51 < Joe> Should we send the email Friday so people can plan their Sunday? 21:51 < Joe> If we are sending it to Pirate Activists 21:51 < noe> Joe is right, probably even best to send an email right away, just like posting to the FB group. 21:52 < jokeefe> Sure. Though calling people specifically might have better results 21:52 < jokeefe> All options is best 21:55 < jokeefe> So lets get out there and get Joe on the ballot! 21:55 < Joe> ^^ 21:55 < jokeefe> Quick update on Noe's campaign.
