WWFM 2017 (World Wide Flash Mob)

posted Mar 27, 2017, 6:52 AM by Greg Jewett
WWFM:  June 10th, 2017

Ideas being bounced around:
  • Can we moon them down at the Capitol?
  • How about Mt Bonell or by the cows in the Arboretum?
  • Line up in front of Precision Camera and everyone take a flash photo at the same time?
  • Does anyone remember the "Splash Mob" that I hosted years ago? It was at the splash pad near the Palmer (Parmer?) event center at Lady Bird Lake. Everyone had water guns and/or balloons - we had a water fight. It was a blast and since it was so hot that day, a welcome relief. It was also well attended. I would love to do that again! 
    • There is a splash pad in Champion Park along Brushy Creek... Better Parking and not in the down town.
    • There is also one at Northeast Metro Park in Pflugerville. Remember the place where we did the "May the 4th Be With You" flash mob? That was fun!
  • Always alternatives!  We could have a Splash Force Mob!
