HELLO WARRIORS OF OZ!!!!!!
THANKS GO OUT TO THOSE THAT CONTINUE TO WORK DILIGENTLY ON OUR KOW – WARRIORS OF OZ FLOATS WITHOUT YOUR DEDICATION WE WOULDN’T HAVE FLOATS IN THE UPCOMING MARDI GRAS PARADE SEASON!
We had another great turn out Saturday, accomplished many task, and had a GREAT MEAL at the end of all the hard work. THANK YOU, Bonnie Primm for cooking pasta with chicken and sausage, you have some skills on the grill and thank you to all of the Warriors of OZ who attended!
Due to popular demand, starting time at the float yard will be 0900 hrs. (9am) each Saturday.
There are only 10 working Saturdays left, yes ONLY 10 before we roll in the Mardi Gras Parade. There is still a lot to accomplish before then: Finish painting all the lollipops, work on the front doors, complete painting the poppies, paint the bike, as well as the house, and many other things!
Over the last few years one of the most common words we have used to describe our floats is “3D”. That is still applicable but we now want to also make our floats, as I just learned, to “POP”. We not only want the items 3D but we want them to make it “POP” out!
BTW, we must a dozen Michelle’s in the KREWE this year and thank goodness most of them come out to work on the floats on Saturday. It does sometimes make it confusing when someone tells you to go ask “Michelle” but much more fun now that they have started numbering themselves.
On Saturday Nov 11th we will have a Mullet Fry down at the float yard for everyone who works that Saturday on the floats. I will need a head count on who plans on working Saturday, November 11th by Monday,November 6th so we can plan accordingly. I will check and see which Football Team is playing before I make the final call.
Again, thanks go out to Bonnie for the lunch and everyone else that showed up and helped out on Saturday. There were many new members working and were assigned jobs. So, when you come to join the fun you may be tasked to help one of them.
We still need artists and more volunteers to work on the floats after all they are YOUR FLOATS!
Come out Saturday and join the Warriors of OZ float fun!
Thank You without you our floats will be bland.
