LEGO Store Grand Opening Newark, DE

Post  maarek on Thu Sep 16, 2010 9:45 pm

Hey everyone!

Anyone who is interested in coming out to the Delaware LEGO Store Grand opening to Volunteer your time and Love for the Brick please post here with when you'd like to volunteer, also if you know half day, whole day. We'll get more information when hear back from the store Manager.

When:
October 1st Friday
October 2nd Saturday
October 3rd Sunday

If it's like the KoP Opening they'll be different things to do from helping the kiddies build big bricks, to the Quality Assurance checking of those bricks
Wink
Typically Saturday is the busiest day with the most happening during the Grand opening. But help is needed for both.

More information will follow so stay tuned to this channel.

Hi guys I guess this is a bit late as Tracie has already posted. I will re-post her message to me on this thread too.

Tracie Spickerman September 19 at 10:21am
Michael Im running the Christiana Building event. I'm starting a volenteer list here at the KOP store. Let me know what is the best way to contact you guys to organize any and all that want to come out and help Smile
Cheers
Tracie

I think this and the facebook groups are the best way to keep members in touch with each other.

Evie and I will probably drop by to say hello, but I got very crowded at the KoP opening and don't do well with crowds like that anymore. Getting old I guess...

I can probably do Saturday and/or Sunday. Can I get a ride from somebody? How easy is it to get from the train station to the mall?

Does anyone know how many hours constitute a "full day?" I will be volunteering a full day if I am needed, I just don't know which day yet. I can't see driving back and forth to Delaware 3 days in a row though.

Event hours

Post  akacrash on Tue Sep 21, 2010 12:31 pm

THe hours for the Christiana Event:
Fri October 1st: 11-7p
Sat October 2nd: 10-6p
Sun October 3rd: 11-6p

Half day is a 4 hr shift.
full day is 7-8 hr shift.

I will be scheduling the volunteers on a first come basis so the sooner we hear from you, the better chance you will have to get the space you want.

I believe we will be able to leave the finishe model up after the event so we do not need to worry about scheduling anyone for breakdown on Sun. night (YAY)

I look forward to hearing from all of you Laughing

I might be interested in doing Sat and/or Sunday. Is there anyone who would be interested in carpooling? Delaware is 62 miles from my house, which equals about 6 gallons of fuel round trip.... which means if I go by myself I am not really making any profit. I can easily pick up anyone from the R5 Septa line in Colmar, or meet someone along the way. I travel 476 south to 95 to get there.

I am looking at Sunday full day and I will call tomorrow to lock that in place.

As KC mentioned, I also would be interested in carpooling from the Lancaster area if anyone is volunteering on Sunday. Just let me know.

KC,

I might be interested, especially if I end up making use of your couch.

I'd be happy to carpool. I live right off of exit 23 of I-95 (I can see I-95 from my front doorstep).

I signed up for all day Saturday and Sunday. I am interested in carpooling to save on fuel costs, and also offering my sofa and livingroom to anyone who wants to stay Fri or Sat night to save on travel time and costs.

carpool to Delaware

Post  Kreativ Snail on Thu Sep 30, 2010 11:59 am

Anyone who is going to the Delaware Opening this Sat or Sun, who would like to carpool and/or stay overnight please email me ASAP so we can set it up. If we spend less on fuel, we can spend more on Lego! :-)

I think I'm going to pass on the store opening (I probably missed the deadline to volunteer anyways). It's been awhile since I had a free weekend to myself at home.

That's a shame Rob. You'll be missed. Enjoy your weekend off though. I'm not volunteering either, I've got web site stuff to do if I get time, although I hope to drop by and say hi to everyone.

I procrastinated on pre-volunteering (I tried on Thursday and Friday but was unable to reach Tracie S.) but I plan on appearing Sunday to see if I help is still needed. The thank-you offer isn't all that appealing to me, but if I'd like to cross-promote Philcon, if they permit. (Philcon does offer LEGO-based activities that official LEGO events don't.)

How goes it, people who are there? When I phoned the Christiana store on Friday, the screaming crowd was clearly audible.
