    Smile RFP - Request for Provisionals

    Needed: Writers and photographers and for the National Rally in Gillette

    Mission: Website Rally Reports. Responsibility will be to provide MOA members who could not make it to the rally a sense of what is happening in Gillette. Each day the team will upload pictures and a description of the people and events in the photographs.

    Hours: Might be long; from sunrise to sunset and then hit the computers. Actually just take the pictures and record who is in them.

    Pay: The same as the rest of the volunteers but it may double at the next rally with accrued experience.

    Equipment Required: Digital Camera, Writing Paper for notes, Comfortable Walking Shoes.

    Helpful: Laptop Computer useful but not essential.

    Useful Skills:
    1. Experience with SmugMug, PhotoBucket or the like. If you don't know folks will teach the basics.
    2. Outgoing personality
    3. Tolerance for long hours but great fun
    4. Legible writing so others can read your notes


    Disclaimer: All photos must be owned by the person submitting and by so doing you grant the BMW MOA the right to publish the photo in any of its media, either print or electronic. No payment is made and the MOA reserves the right to refuse, edit or modify any submissions.

    If interested: Please send an email or a PM to Paul Bachorz or Ian Schmeisser and you will be kept up to date with rally details. Email addresses for Ian and Paul are in recent editions of Owners News or click private message above.

    Wonderful!

    Try to get a few shots of the thirsty multitude. Be sure to take names for photo ID and possible black mail opportunities in the future.

    No matter where you are ...

    Makes no difference what your skill level is


    whether you are here

    or here ...

    your skills are needed. Send an email or a PM. You can do the "work" while you are walking around the rally.

    So, you want pics uploaded to smugmug then? Guess that saves emailing you several large attachments...

    Ted,

    That would work fine. I will be posting a few shots from last year as rally gets closer but if you have a few shots of the "canvas chalets" that would be helpful. It would give newcomers a sense of what to expect.

    During the rally the shots will all be archived and each evening shots will be uploaded to SmugMug and posted on the forum. And if Jack is around maybe a few classic captions.

    Paul

    On the other hand, I could just load them up on a memory stick and walk that over to you.

    Around here, we call that the sneaker net.

    Paul, since I am going to my 1st MOA Rally (sans 1st BMW bike, my F800S, since my 1st bike, period, a hand-me-down BMW R50/2) by plane for 4 days, I can bring my Canon DSLR and my laptop.

    PM or email me if you want me. I don't usually use the laptop for photo-stuff, but I can load software on it for this.

    Are my relatives planning on being there to help out?

    Holly

    BTW: I just finished doing the same thing for the Icelandic National League Convention: http://inlofna.org/Conf2008/Welcome.html Got it up within an hour of each event. Now I really need to fix it up. I'll give you any decent pics I get while I'm in Gillette.
