Monsoon Puppet Meeting, January 06, 2010
Puppets decide on exciting theme for parade:
The meeting went smoothly, with the puppets doing all of the talking. Susie
Snowflake recorded the minutes. The theme is patterned after the "Running
of the Bulls", in Pamplona Spain. Despite the obvious danger involved, the
puppets felt they could rise again from any mishaps with a little paint and
needle and thread.
Running of the Puppets, February 13th
Several key points were discussed:
1. The date will be Saturday February 13th, during the Chocolate
Fantasia. 1PM meet time - 2PM parade starts.
2. Jamie will work on a permit, to allow free range of Bulls up and down
Bullard, during the parade (10 minutes).
3. A large Bull (with an embedded stereo for Flamenco music) will be in the center
of the parade, threatening existing puppets.
4. Puppet 'runners' and mobile 'bulls' will range in the rest of the
5. Human powered bikers and skateboarders will be actively recruited to
make puppets and participate.
6. In that same vein, satellite puppet Krewes are encouraged to form and
participate in 'The Running of the Puppets', and future parades.
7. The next puppet play will be on the Fourth of July. In a
special meeting at Isaac's, called by the puppeteers (puppets not invited),
it was decided to have a play after the parade on the thirteenth.
8. All puppet parades are non-motorized.
