I have just learned that Wild Pink Yonder is going to the Alberta Urban Municipalities Association (AUMA) conference!
There will be 1,200+ delegates — some from every municipality in the entire province — and we get to speak to them for 5-10 minutes with photos from the ride projected behind us. Oooooh, the excitement!
Add to that the fact that Barry Kletke, the mayor of Trochu, has agreed to offer up a Wild Pink Yonder Mayor’s Challenge, and things are looking a little better than pretty good!
Icing on the cake is that we get to take our pink covered wagon and put it in the lobby of the hotel where they are meeting and leave it there for the duration of the conference! (This is assuming it will fit. I’ve just sent them the dimensions now … but if cars and trucks can be displayed there, I don’t see why a wagon couldn’t!)
So … anyone going to be in the Edmonton area between November 22 and 24 with nothing to do? We will need folks to man the wagon and hand out literature about WPY.
