The Decatur Makers PRS Team is orchestrating a flashmob during Maker Faire to help gain “Moxie” points for the DM “Maker Barbie’s Barbie Mobile” (Power racing series car) on Saturday at 11:58AM.
We need an out pouring of support, so if you’re at maker faire, please help us out…
(OPTIONAL) Step 0… If your wardrobe supports it, please wear a PINK shirt, with a NON-PINK over-shirt or jacket. This is optional but highly encouraged. Pink tu-tu’s, jump suits, hats, socks, pajama pants, capes, bikinis, capes, wigs, roller sates, etc. are highly encouraged, but not required to participate in the flash mob!
Step 1 – As soon as you arrive at the faire, stop by the Decatur Makers booth (I think #F66) and pick up two Pink Balloons..
Step 2 – Arrive at the Power Racing Series Track no later than 11:58AM on Saturday (rain or shine). DO NOT START THE FLASHMOB AT 11:58. Wait until the PINK Barbie Mobile is being presented and begin discretely blowing up your balloons. Feel free to tie them if you want, or leave them untied, so long as you can wait until the “Secret Magical keyWord” is spoken to release them…
Step 3 – Our fearless leader Lew Lefton will say a few words to begin our Moxie presentation… It will last 10-15 seconds and a Barbie themed musical montage will begin. DO NOT RELEASE YOUR BALLOONS UNTIL THE “secret magical keyword” is spoken…
Step 4 – The “Super magical keyword” is still TBD and may not be known until the morning of the event… Hopefully, you will know the “secret magical keyword” by the time you get your balloon.
Step 5 – ONLY when you hear LEW LEFTON say the “secret magical keyword” RELEASE YOUR balloons into the crowd. Remove any optional clothing covering your pink garments and vigorously dance and shout in support of Decatur Makers PRS Team!
Step 6 – REPEATEDLY PRESS the button located on the Moxie board for the Maker Barbie’s Barbie Mobile” – the more times the button is pressed, the more likely we are to win!!!
Step 7 – When the moxie contest is over, please stick around (or come back) until 1 PM and 2 PM to support your Decatur Makers!
Thank you all for your support! – Please reply if you have any questions! I hope to see all of you out there!!! The more balloons and the more PINK we can gather the better!!! – feel free to recruit others, and share with friends!
PS – if anyone is interested in helping out during the race as a volunteer we still need one or two more people – must have a valid drivers licence!
