KRF II - Are you ready?

Hey everyone,

I just wanted to put a post up here to see who from Knight Rider Online is planning to come to Knight Rider Festival II? I'm curious who to look out for there and who is excited about the event as we get closer and closer to once again rockin' Fremont Street with our passion for this great franchise we call Knight Rider and doing it all for the worthy cause of raising money for The Children's Miracle Network.

I also need to post a very important poll on possible t-shirt sales at the event. It has become very important to get an accurate estimate of who would like to purchase an event t-shirt should we offer one and in what quanitity and sizes they prefer.

Here is the proposed design for the back of the t-shirt (sans event text) with a smaller show logo on the front over the left breast.

I cannot at this time guarantee there will be a t-shirt offered but a good idea of who would want one would help leverage whether or not to offer them this year.

Regardless of that though, I want you all to come out and join myself, KRO, and all the other passionate fans of Knight Rider in Las Vegas for two days of unforgettable memories and your best chance to get up close and personal with the availible celebs from the world of Knight Rider who have donated their time to our worthy cause!

Thanks again for your time and for your vote! It makes a difference!

NOTE: REMEMBER IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON BRINGING A REPLICA TO DISPLAY ON FREMONT STREET, MAKE SURE YOU REGISTER IT ON THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE AND THAT YOUR PAPERWORK IS IN ORDER! THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT!

WE NEED YOUR CARS!

I forgot to add in there because we would use higher quality printing to preserve detail as much as possible, t-shirts would be 15.00 each and they would be printed on black cotton.

As I live in the UK, I won't be attending the Las Vegas Event. But if a UK Event comes, I'll attempt to attend that ;]

I can't make it this year but would like to buy a shirt (XXL) and I would pay a little more for it. I hope this will happen again in 2011 because my car will be done and I will be there.

I will be there coming from the UK and will buy a M sized shirt. American sizes seem a bit different to UK sizes. Medium shirts here seem a bit of a tight fit on here but M american size fits very comfortably.

Nick, I think you will be safe from Medium and up.

If I have to, I will buy a Large, which is also okay but will be a bit loose.

And any idea on the prices of the posters yet?

I have confirmation that my day off has been approved, so my family and I will be there! I would love to get 2 XL and 1 S shirt. I'm really looking forward to it. I'll be driving my truck, which has the scanner on it. Anyone who wants to see the scanner in action will be welcome to come take a look at it. It won't be on Freemont St, since it's not a replica, though.

I've already made my reservations at the Golden Nugget, registered KI3T, planned out our week-long trip and looking forward to all of it. We're also going to Shelby Automobiles to take a tour of the facility as well as going out to El Mirage Dry Lake and taking some pics and vids with KI3T. Can't wait! I'll buy one Medium and one Large for sure.
Victor, I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you and everyone who is involved in this event. I think I can speak for most all of the community in saying that we really appreciate your work to make this event happen!

Thanks everyone for the feedback, it makes a difference.

Slade - at the moment I figure the posters will retail for a flat rate of $25.00 USD, the price includes postage and should be open to everywhere USPS ships. I am still working out details but when I'm ready to announce the pre-orders going live, I will make sure everyone knows so they have a fair shot to get one as they are strictly limited to 200 prints. Depending on whether we move foward with t-shirts or not, I may put together some combo deals as well. I am still at the momet in the process of setting up the webstore to handle orders and waiting to view and approve the proof of the poster before they go to press.

tamatt27 - Thanks for the support. We're trying to make this the best event we possibly can with the resources we have availible.

Everyone else who is attending, see you in Vegas!

I think that was directed at me but thanks for the info!

I did have the impression that the posters and t-shirts would be available to pick up on the day of the festival but since you mentioned shipping, I gather that the sale of the shirts and posters is strictly an online thing?

I hope there will, at least, be some memorabilia to buy on the day.

Sorry about that Skav, it was a long sleepless night and I misread Slade's name thinking I was replying to you because it was the last name I saw in the thread.

I am working on setting up a pre-order system for books and I'm not sure yet if that is going to include posters or not for pick up at the event just yet. At the moment my plans are to offer the poster for online pre-order sales in February, ship those out, and see where things go.

If I were to offer a pre-order for show pick up, the downside is I will not be able to get people their stuff before the VIP party that Friday night (which I would assume is when fans would want to get other celebs to sign their posters/books) but instead would have to wait until early Saturday to handle distribution considering I won't have a table space availible on Friday to handle fulfilling orders.

I plan to have a limited supply of KRC books to offer at the beginning of the VIP party ($40.00, cash only) for fans to purchase on a first come, first served basis (like last time) so that once I have sold out of supply there, I can enjoy the party along with everyone else.

I really have to play things by ear first to get an idea of how to make the posters availible to give everyone a fair shot (like those who can't make the event but still want to have a piece of it) at getting one since I have such a limited supply to go around. If there's enough popularity in February with pre-sales and I happen to sell out, I would consider doing another run for pick up at the festival to meet demand there.

Otherwise I will bring what I have left in stock (if any) and sell those on a first come, first served basis most likely that Saturday at my table.

Because of the printing costs involved, I'm only planning on doing one 200 print run of LE posters at this time.

For the moment I am just trying to decide what is the best route to go. I will have the details hashed out in early February and make an announcement. I'm not comfortable taking orders until i've at least approved the proof of the poster first because my concern has always been to make sure the fans feel as if they're getting their money's worth out of the products I provide and I will not settle for less.

That sounds like a fair method of distribution, Nick, if I find you, I'll be sure to ask you if I can purchase a KRC book!

Thanks.

I forgot to add that I can't afford to place any pre-orders because I'm currenty saving up 4 grand for something I want so if I wanted posters and shirts it would have to come out of my spending money for Vegas and if none are left for the festival, that's me screwed.

That's one drawback but that's life.

i'll be there! i am excited to see more people and more cars. i won't be lugging around a big news camera this time so it will give me more time to enjoy the festival. i'd get a small shirt. the smalls ran out last year and now i have a large, so it's kind of big on me.

Of course, Nick, and I honestly wasn't hinting you should go out of the way for me, either, so that's great of ya to say what you did.

Whatever happens, happens. It's cool. :D
