The clock is ticking, and tocking. The deadline for team payments is on Wednesday 15th January. About 30% of you have paid so far, so thank you.
There are currently 55 tickets left for sale for the Showcase event. If you desire one, and we’re sure there’s a fair few hangers-on, supporters, former and/or injured rapperists and those would that go to the opening of an envelope, then please click on the PayPal link to the right and purchase yourself a ticket. We are highly likely to sell out, so please don’t delay, buy one/two/three today.
Remember that your ticket is the email that you receive from PayPal. So either print it off and keep safe, or electronically save it somewhere really obvious.
Merchandise. The gloriously capitalist part of any event, where the organisers attempt to come up with great designs and products and attempt to sell them to you for slightly more than they cost! We’re sticking with a nice badge and a t-shirt, as these seem to be what people want and for what they are willing to pay. We are also producing a numbered, limited edition poster of all the teams that take part. They’ll be in kit and identified by team name and competition category etc. If you google the Oscar Winner Dress Poster, you’ll see what we’e aiming for.
As we said, it’ll be a limited edition, numbered, and also silkscreen printed onto archival quality paper. A real reminder of the Bristol event. The poster and t-shirts will be available on pre-order at the beginning of March, with a 10% over-run for you to purchase at the event. Just in case you change your mind when you see the t-shirts being worn and the poster in front of your face.
And finally, there’s some gaps to fill on the grand historical roster of DERT events from yonder times. If you know, for instance, where DERT 1997 was held, on what dates, who organised it and who won the Steve Marris Trophy then please do get in touch. The information gaps are to be found on the Wikipedia page for DERT and also on the Sword Dance Union’s DERT page
