Hi guys,
Stephen and I went along to the clubs meeting last night (free pizza, woo hoo!) and one of the items talked about was women's fest next week.
On Wednesday 28 May all interested clubs are being given the opportunity to hold a promotional stand in the quad between 11 and 2, with a particular focus on marketing their club to female students between.
This is not to say that we can't sign up male students too, I think it would be a good opportunity to boost our membership overall and also catch some ladies who have come to check out the other activities in the quad.
Please can you let me or Stephen know if you have any time available on Wednesday to help out, even a stand for an hour or two would be better than nothing!
Cheers,
Hanne

PS Oops, typed wrong date in heading >< can someone pls alter, thanks

I'll be free from 10ish till 3pm. What do I need to do?

Hanne
23rd May 2008, 13:24
I think we will set up with one or two bikes and a table in the quad (maybe a bike and a scooter? WWH might want a scooter of theirs out this time) and have some leaflets like we did last time, deals etc. And sign up sheets of course.
I can't bethere between 11 and 12 (test ><) but will come right after that.

I'll help, I can make it at eleven to one thirty if you guys need, I can help set up and unlike some people, hold a conversation with a girl without drooling haha. I would like to get more involved with the club.

Yep, this is not intended to be a cleavage-scavenging event but rather a serious 'join our club' thing! If you could come at 11 that would be excellent, I will help set up beforehand and be back at 12

:rofl:
"hey dushii, look! a girl holding a helmet!"

*dushi runs after her*

and when rie first turns up, we're all leaving strata in the elevator, door opens, dushi is there after running from shads to strata, goes "there's a really hot girl over at shads", and then runs off...

promo girls attract guys rather than girls, which i think this event will do anyway

Might just pop in at lunch time to see how things are going... Promo girls ? Yeah if the Red Bull girls can attract guys to sign up then I think the club could use the membership proceeds for better purposes like filling up my bike and beemer :shutup:

:cool:

Just kidding :D

I think one big bike, one small bike, one scooter would do (how limited the space is?)

Kim or Ewen's CBR, Madison or Rie's GPX (or GN) and preferbly Pink Vespa or look-a-likes

Those pics were cool Banzai....they might just attract unwanted attention too...

Last sign up we had about 7 or 8 bikes parked up by the gym.. mixture of 250's to 1000cc bikes.

1 bike only since it's in the quad. I'll talk to Don at some point but i think he'd be more interested in putting out a scooter or something for re o-week when we'll be out for a couple of days

EDIT: What's this thread tag of "sexist"? (down the bottom) Who put that there and why?

because the sign up is for female riders only, guys can sign up but the stand is not up for them which is odd, Lets set up a guys bike stand sometime with beers and deck chairs and a barbecue and pantera and loud bikes doing burnouts, and strippers. lol Oh I didn't add the tag too.

Just one bike, there will be other clubs wanting stands also. Might park Madison up there (on a tactful angle ><)


we want to be visible but not obstruct walkways etc.

And as I said, although the context is WomensFest, the sign up stand is for all interested.

motorbyclist

don't know who put it there, but it seems that NOT having enough girls is a sign of inequality, and therefore sexism, yet targeting girls for a sign up, at an event that targets girls for signup, is ALSO classed as sexism.

pisses me off how the uni goes through all this effort for "equity", making sure committees etc all have the correct proportions of different races and gender rather than who is more qualified for the job, because somehow by deliberately separating people into groups and giving some preferential treatment to "help them along a bit" (thus inevitably excluding one more qualified student because they aren't a minority) is not racist/sexist while treating everyone the same (which, ironically, is the very thing they are trying to say they've achieved) somehow is racist/sexist

See my post above, this is in no way ONLY for female riders. Womens Fest is just the CONTEXT, the reason we have been invited into the quad.

EDIT: you can argue for ages about the validity of the festival itself but what I am interested in here is if anyone is free to help recruit more club members.

No doubt some sort of subtle, flame war provoking tactic by an 'outsider' :shutup:(Ooooooooooo! Outsiders! Quick, fetch the pitchfork and burning torches!!!)

I'm a believer in positive discrimination, because various fields of endeavour often end up having a dominant socio-cultural hegemony of some sort - even though they may exist to serve society as a whole.

Being more representative of the needs of society as a whole by virtue of a societally representative socio-cultural makeup is a 'good thing' in a general sense.

I do get where MB is coming from - the rebalancing should NOT come at the cost of hiring/appointing a lesser-qualified individual. That does not serve anyone best.

Hey isn't it good idea to print some of last friday ride's photo and stick it on the table we will get for sign-up stand?

And few more photos that might interest ppls to join.

I can print some of practice day photos as well ;)

I might be held up till 1pm.

Stephen/Hanne might wanna take in that at the moment its exam/assignment period and probably not the best time for people to join up to clubs etc...

However, after the semester break, that's another story...

This is just a mini sign up, I reckon we will still get a few more though, and then they could join us on some rides in the inter-semester break.

Banzai, if you want to print some pics then bring them along, the bike by the stand should be quite a good ad ofr what we are though.

And Folcan, it'd be awesome to see you for a bit too. Stephen will be there from 11, I will come at 12, and Dushy and Banzai also, so come say hi!
Will have sign up sheets and maybe some cheesecutter petitions also (they are atarting to collect them btw, if anyone has sheets/ hasn't yet signed)

See some of you tomorrow,

Hanne (021 057 0749)

lol i think having to roll start the viffer, trying to repair the tail light, having the viffer and madison playing "wheelsies" plus the usual shit talking/dushi bashing/epic biker's arguments while standing around admiring the girl in white jeans (plus that blonde standing to her right for a while) was a good ad of what we are too:bleh:

next time we set up a minimoto track and have races around the quad - that should get a fair bit of publicity and signups:clap:
