The Crossroads of the Aether
So I am Captain of a Small but growing Airship named Lenora. We are having money problems as we are all in a ... shall we say poor we are all in poor form. While we all know how to make everything expensively and what not we don't know how to get to events.
As a Captain I'm a little scared of my crew hating me for not being able to get it all together but I just don't have the money or know how of how to get everything out there.
Pretty Please with a big Cog on the tipy top?
Howdy Batty, Might I suggest you do some fund raising projects with your air crew. Stuff like washing cars or mowing grass as a group to pool the man power so you can all benefit. You will need a treasurer to watch over the funds and be accountable to the group Open a free checking account as a way to keep track of the funds and it should require two people to make withdraws so no one is tempted. Your first (by my way of thinking) is to make up some long lasting and very well made signs that will show off who you are. By doing this you are being pro-active in your home town by doing things that make the town a better place and you show off what Steampunk is and who you are. There might be a movie coming out soon called, War of the Worlds: Goliath, get with your local theater and see if you can dress up in period wear to help advertise this movie, Plus it will most likely get into the paper (HINT!: You need to give the paper a call and tell them!) and give you a chance to say something about what your airship is trying to do. Some of the members could dress up and advertize the Steampunk idea to your town. A group that gives back to the city is a group that is helped by the city. This will not make you money but you could adopt a street or road to put your groups name on the map too. This means you all get together and pick up the trash for that section of the road. They do it in Texas I do not know if it is done in other states.
Hey Batty you need to change the font color on your profile page, it is red on red and therefore un"red"able. hehe I was able to see you are from Texas so you have a chance at adopting a road.
