And in a major fail, I realize I don't have extra fliers. So sadly tomorrow won't work. I will order more for the June date. Sorry, all.

I can make both.  I'll see you tomorrow @ 2:00 North/Damen/Milwaukee.

Super! I have time this Sunday and June 8th. Want to plan for both days flyering? If so, we can aim for Wicker Park this Sunday and Lincoln Avenue near Fullerton and heading NW. How does 2 pm work?

I would be up for a flyering and am free most Sunday afternoons. This coming Sunday I would not be available.

Katie--sounds like a plan to me.  I'm free most Sunday afternoons up to June 22.  Anyone else in for this?  Any preferences for date?  If you've never been on one of our flyering events, please join us!

Hi Tom - that would be great! I've flyered casually around where I live. What would you think of a Sunday mid-day event around Milwaukee/Wicker park?

Comment by Thunder Snow on May 11, 2014 at 10:08am

The weather's finally getting nice again, after our tough winter.  Anyone have any ideas for some Look Chicago flyering events?  I'm thinking Lincoln Avenue south of Fullerton or Milwaukee Avenue in Wicker Park again, as these are seriously narrow, busy corridors.  Other ideas?

Hey Katie, can we get together & talk about what you guys are trying to do. Busy this Sat. But Sunday is open for Marlene & I. Could do brunch over this if that's cool with you & Aaron. Thanks -Tony

Hi all - I hope I can help, too. Steve - thanks again for the generosity.

I had been in talks with Todd at Break the Gridlock - he had mentioned that as part of the Break the Gridlock organizations we can get support for hosted websites and financial processing, in case of donations. Kevin - if you want any help or background insights on this, let me know. 

As for fees, the first year we incurred some due to the bike light program and website hosting (Aaron and I paid for this with some help from Chicago Conservation Corps), flyers (paid for primarily by Freeman Kevenides Law Firm and Steve's first donation). We currently have approximately 800 flyers in stock for spring time (and hopefully auto show) flyering. Other than potentially getting a banner for events, we are pretty cost efficient right now. I'm sorry I've been remiss on the transparency for funding and that I don't have exact information at the moment.
