    Distribution.

    Need people to stick their hand up for distribution this year.

    What I would like is for people from all over the stadium to be involved and selling copies.

    Ideally we would have 10people with about 20copies each.

    All you have to do is tell people what it is why it is and that its just a gold coin.

    Please post here if you are interested and I will start organising logisitics with money exchange etc.

    We will have at least 2 issues as I have almost 2 complete issues read to go.

    More distributors the more we can sell. We could be looking at a much larger print run in future.

    Exactly. Part of the problem was not having enough people to sell, it is just as important as writing for the zine.

    I'm willing to put a shift in for you

    but what you don't want to get happening is the same people do it every time.

    An idea for positioning sellers would be near the food and the beer lines. People with loose change will be more likely to buy.

    Don't think it's ever really been sold in the ground tbh - usually outside of the ground before kickoff.

    FWIW to anyone thinking about helping.. I helped sell these a couple of times a couple of seasons ago, and 20 copies will be way easy to sell - you'll do it in no time.

    Can you give us a list of dates we're selling what issue, and times for kickoff etc Bmac?
    OK

    b mac or g fish will confirm this but it depends on the content.

    if we post anti gve, anti hsg they aren't going to be opening the doors, but if its all good feel stuff than they would be accommodating for us to sell it in the ground.

    Can confirm.

    We used to send it to jarrod, he would suggest edits. Usually pretty small cant think of real issues he arked up about.

    If the suggested edits were okay by me, we made the changes and sold inside. If the suggested edits were trying to control content we simply ignored the requests and old outside.

    It was all quite amicable, jarrod was great to deal with, we both knew where each stood on the deal and were cool with things. It never really impacted on sales. The clubs main concern was being seen to be supporting things that may go against FFA regulations as to what was allowed inside stadia, rather than criticisms of the club.... That's how I saw the way that things were dealt with.


    Just run a story praising ford over Hyundai or flares should be allowed to be used by more than just the RBB and all will be sweet

    Ok, it appears selling inside the ground is out.

    I would still like 10 people, but that is being overly hopeful.

    The first two issues are out - 20/10 (3pm K.o.), 2/11 (7:30 k.o.)

    I need 10 people for each. If I get the hands the work is easy and we can each spend less time pre-match doing this.

    What I hope to achieve:

    30-50 issues sold at tenzo
    15 issues distributed to 10 people who wander around the stadium grounds (Hockey corner, Servo lights, Northern side near go karts, Styx bridge, back gate, etc.) Selling each of their issues as people come in.

    still held accountable by the corporate. Isnt a zine supposed to be controversial and sometimes against the hiearachy. needs more fks & cvnts in it.

    True, but no really controversial submissions were made, so it never really came to a head.
