"3 lights of the match" story teller needed for event.
« on: January 04, 2011, 09:05:05 PM »
Hello Appleseeders!
There is a firearms event coming up in the central Texas area and there is a need for someone well versed in the Appleseed story to come to the event and share the story and also share more info about Appleseed and hopefully get more interested people to come to an Appleseed event!

Please contact me at kvnkcrs@yahoo.com if you are interested in helping out!

Thanks
Kevin

DoubleLL and myself have done a "suspenseful" telling of the Three Strikes at a couple events which leaves out some of the important details from the Strikes, but also gives opportunity to tell more of the side/back stories in the Strikes.  Our thinking was we don't want to just give away the Strikes for "free" without someone coming to an Appleseed.

So we tell the backstory, talk in more depth about Paul Revere, mention the major milestones in general terms, and leave the Green as a cliffhanger.  Tell how the Training Band assembled, and the column comes into view aaaannd...."Come to an Appleseed to find out what happens." 

We like to tell the backstory of Sam Adams and John Hancock and the Trout.  And get into more of the first Powder Raids and how the colonists built up the maze of communication signals they did.  We like to leave the major points of the story out so that people have a reason to come to an Appleseed to hear what happens.

Just an idea.

Kevin, thanks for the interest and the opportunity, We do love to tell our story and "The Story" but we will have to discuss our current schedule and commitments before we can consider sending anyone your way. Give us a few days and we can let you know. Thanks!  :)
