Wildwood Fall Festival [SIGN UP][MAP]

Our squadron just received approval to have a promotional booth at the Wildwood Fall Festival at Wildwood State Park in Wading River, NY. The event expects a crowd of 4000 participants. The time will be 1000 - 1600 hrs on 22 SEP 2018. We will promote and recruit for our squadron. In lieu of a sponsorship fee, we will provide a free activity for the public. Additionally, we have a fund raising component.


We will have a bake sale so I'm looking for donations of product. It could be cookies, brownies, cupcakes. Please let me know if you can contribute and which product.


In order to not be charged for our booth, CAP will provide a free activity for the public. Some ideas I have are to teach how to tie knots; make paper airplanes; teach how to read a compass; scavenger hunt incorporating other vendors (which would db e fun), etc. So far, I have 125 paper airplanes printed in color. It's not just folding the planes, but teaching the effects of the control surfaces. We can have a cadet or two teach how to read a compass and tie knots. This will cover ES and AE. All ideas are welcome. 


I would like to promote our social media presence. One idea I have is to have people "Like and Follow" us on our pages, share it among their network, and use a specific #hashtag for the event. If they do it right then on their smart phone, we can give out a small inexpensive prize. I found on www.guillow.com balsam wood airplanes $10 for 20. If we can accumulate 100 pieces, that would be wonderful. If you can't do the bake sale portion, would you consider sponsoring/ordering a pack of planes for giveaways? I welcome all ideas. Contact me at woodtm9 @ gmail.com .


Lt. Wojtas will be the safety officer for the day, so we will have the minimum number of senior members needed; however, come on down and participate! The more merrier especially if you have a specialty like AE or ES. You can bring your family with you as there will be plenty of free activities, live entertainment, food, pony rides, wagon rides, carnival games etc. Bring a lawn chair to relax. We can always use senior members to help have discussions with the public about what we do and why we do it. Remember we are recruiting. I will need to know if you need a vehicle pass. 

In summary, if you can donate baked goods, donate a pack or two of balsam wood airplanes, or donate your time, please let me know at your earliest convenience since I will need to contact the Parks Department for vehicle passes.
