Due to the unforeseen Mavericks Celebration Parade, we at DSVP have determined best to reschedule bigBANG! 2011 by one day, to Friday, June 17. We’ll maintain the exact same schedule as planned. Doors at 8am, with registration starting at 8:15. All the details here: www.bigbangtx.org
After running through multiple scenarios and weighing safety, cost and viability, it is determined that trying to keep the event intact on June 16 when 250,000 Mavericks fans are estimated to arrive on the very block Union Station is located, is foolhardy at best.
We explored keeping the same day with the Mayor’s office, the traffic officers and our key advisors. We also explored a truncated day, alternative locations, and moving the date to another month. After much deliberation, and many phone calls, Friday keeps our momentum, our menu of custom grown food, most of our speakers, volunteers, staff and hopefully YOU, our audience.
Inspired by the spirit of the Dallas Mavericks and their ability to pull out all the stops in the final moments of their game; we too feel motivated to give bigBANG! 2011 our best effort.
So we hope to see you there. We will be there ready to give you the best socially innovative event ever held. Should you have any problems, please come and see us at the “YES” table. It will be right next to registration. This will be helpful should you send someone in your place. No matter what, should you not be able to attend, we will have live streaming all day on Friday: http://bigbangtx.org/this-space-reserved-for-live-web-streaming-on-june-16/
It’s on! FRIDAY!
Your friends at DSVP
