    Default Banner Day - 28 January 2011

    I think it is time for one of those to start off the year.

    Director's, you okay if I get this rolling?

    At least I know where all the banners are this time.

    Email them first, before posting the event perhaps?

    Not knocking it... cool idea, but just a suggestion

    There "may" be some "regulations" about the frequency of Banner days?

    No problem from me on this. If the other TB'ers agree, why not invite the WD's over to assist on banner day?

    Okay, dont know about your encounters, but last time the boyz in blue advised that it's against municipal bylaws to display banners without City's approval. A feisty redhead and anotha brotha of my motha smooched em over, but apparently it wont be considered good form if we have stuff confiscated - even though we might be R-A-S-L. Go figure!

    Can you get the go ahead from all Directors and as Brendon said the frequency of these days.
    If you happy then I would be okay to schedule them for the year and then run with them.

    Methinks, perhaps, that RT did consider this (yes, I am psychic, in case anyone is wondering... at least I think I am)...

    Hey, I am more than happy to see any banner day, anytime, anywhere, with or without authorisation. If our banners get confisticated, hell we can ask the "dogs" to fund some more.

    you go girl, if any one gives you flack, tell them AMZ said it was OK.

    It can like to be my biffday on that day ... soooooooooo if someone brings me chocolate cake on a bridge somewhere, I'd be ecstatic to go and hang a banner on a bridge and hand out some of those yellow sticky things.

    What time of day do you normally run the banner day? If I can get my banner back from you I can put it up on the bridge over Kliprivier Drive.

    @WC You must be a wonderful person 'cause it's my daughters birthday too and she rocks

    Colyvon, talk to Stranger, he usually hangs the banner on Hart Avenue between Swartkoppies and Michelle Avenue, more exposure as a lot of drivers get on at Swartkoppies. Only thing is you cannot get on Hart Avenue directly from the R59, but not a biggie

    We want more bridges covered, so leave him be at Kliprivier.
    Will post a plan shortly.

    even better have him hang the poster on the north side of the bridge, facing the south bound lane Cover more cages that way, as about 99% of all people driving north will pass both Klipriver and Hart Avenue

    Just a suggestion

    It's called "unsolicited advertising" according to the cop who "let us off" - He said they (the metro cops that enforce the law) would not only confiscate our banner, but our bikes and paraphernalia too, and slap us with a R10K fine

    So, be careful out there, I hope the Jhb cops have got better things to do than harass you.

    I'm off to the courts next week to find a legal way around this and will post my findings then
    I never try anything, I just do it >;
