We Are SO Grateful!

June is approaching quickly my fellow STeeMPeePS! I love that there have been several people stepping forward with random donations and neat sponsoring packages we are excited to bring to you and announce. So, we will start there and then get into some of the recent changes. Thank all of you that have already contributed in some manner and thank you to those that will! We have a fundition campaign set up for those that would like to stay posted and follow us there as well! Yes! With the assistance of @pennsif, @zen-art, and a few other helpful Steempeeps, we have gotten the support of @fundition to move forward with help from the Steem community as a whole. Our appreciation is in full force for their acceptance.

Sponsors & Guests

Obviously, things like this cost money, and as our personal budgets aren't the world's largest, witness @enginewitty (currently ranked #95 on Steemian.info and head of The Alliance), has been reaching out to people and communities to seek their support in making this happen. These are all communities he associates with on some level, helps to support in various forms or fashions and are -he feels- also heavily vested in the future of STEEM. This list is more complete now, and we still may have room for a few more. As it stands, so far we have:

  • @adsactly - ADSactly has been a supporter of The Alliance almost since its inception. They love that we have been supportive of them as well and we all agree that the #steem #blockchain is one of the cryptosphere's best kept secrets. They run a witness (currently #52) and have been helping to secure the chain for ages. They already have several things in mind for a presentation and some beautiful things to unveil to the public! They really are about community and we thank you for your commitment! Stop in to their discord sometime and say hello!
  • @ssg-community - #steemsilvergold 'pirates' and The Alliance family have always meshed well together and there is a strong crossover of members from each community. Upon speaking with @raybrockman and @thedamus, there was a big 'Hell Yea!' involved! Maybe we'll see a new 2019 STEEM Round unveiled or have a live #monsterraffle? Rumor has it that the #monsterraffle4 will coincide with The Block Party! I do know of something really kick ass that'll be exposed! Be exciting to see some shiny people there! Thank you for your commitment!
  • @spl - After speaking with @bethalea, she was all about having some representation for Lucksacks and the Steem Poker League. Wouldn't it be fun to have a live poker tournament? I'm game! Thank you for your commitment! Looking forward to my deck of cards with that sweet ass on it!
  • @freewritehouse - This is a treat for anyone that wants to expand their creative hand. @mariannewest has committed to helping sponsor and come up with a few fun activities for people. This is a very unexpected and appreciated gesture as there were multiple communities and people asked that had far deeper pockets and more time on their hands that declined - many thanks! I look forward to a live #freewrite activity!
  • @oracle-d - Though unable to actually attend, @starkerz has agreed to help out in various other ways and be a sponsor of this event, so we thank him heavily and will be spoken of and thought of fondly throughout the process. Did you know they were a witness too? (currently #92) They help so many people, maybe stop in with your extra vote?
  • @dsound - Talking to @prc is always a joy as he has a great attitude. Music will do that to you. They have agreed to have representation there and perhaps give a presentation. Beautiful thing too, because we have some great musicians showing up to perform! They also run a witness (currently #106) for those that have extra votes! Thank you for your commitment!
  • FreedomEx.io - A brand new exchange attaching itself to the blockchain from some familiar Steempeeps has stepped up to the plate and have agreed to help sponsor the event. Aside from running the @freedomx.witness (currently #127), they have been working hard to help get STEEM out of the bushes and into the playing field. They recently launched their own token - FREEX - and have beautifully secured STEEM to be part of the NetCoins integration! Congrats guys! Stop in to their discord for more information about the exchange.
  • @guiltyparties - Good ol' Guilty has come forward and will be throwing some things together for us! He is also a witness (currently #58), representing multiple communities including the veterans here on the chain. Very happy to see this long-time blockchain enthusiast offer what he can to assist in our endeavor. Word has it, he is sending along a little surprise for our goodie bags!
  • @nainaztengra - She has been a long time supporter of #thealliance and we are happy to call her smiling self 'family'. Thank you sweetheart! We really appreciate your contribution!
  • @thecryptodrive - He has given a healthy donation to the cause! Thank you sir! He is a stellar witness (currently ranked #9!) Be on the lookout for DLease and the exciting things they will be bringing to the table!
  • @josephsavage - On behalf of @steembasicincome, he has promised to support us with 100 SBI bonus units (for @thealliance) and 2 bonus units for everyone that attends, and then 5% bonus units on all enrollments from our attendee list that come in the first 30 days after the event. How sweet is that! Rumor has it, they will have a representative there to fill us in on their vision moving forward with STEEM as well!
  • @brisby - Such a sweet soul on this lady! She has given some of her hard earned STEEM to help further the cause and we are ever as grateful to you as we are any donations received to make this happen for everyone! Thank you Briz!
  • @eonwarped - What a wonderful surprise to see one of @helpie's go to guys step up to the plate with his own personal wallet and donate some of his earned rewards from the blockchain! We all thank you sir, totally unexpected!

The Party House?

We have decided that from June 20th - 23rd, to go with a more 'intimate' setting for our 'sleeping quarters'. This beauty sleeps about 50 people and that is what we are estimating (fingers crossed) will ultimately show up. With this intimacy comes a great many things which will be more inclusive in the following RSVP post. We are still going to have a place to give our presentations, have our performances and PLAY, so rest assured, this is probably going to kick more ass than we wanted it to when we had the hotel in our sights. Facts are though, we did start planning this a little later than we should have, so some things were out of our reach that we wanted to get with the hotel. For those that want to drive in an RV or go camping, there is a cozy spot about 20 minutes from the house and we will all still be close to Colorado Springs but not too far away from the majestic scenery of the Rockies. It'll be awesome, we promise!

So Thankful

For all the people/organizations/communities that have agreed to help us out and give what they have been able to. It's going to be real fun, I promise! Especially when you have some AWESOMESAUCE like @carrieallen out there and familiar with the territory and happy to see to it we all have an absolute blast. There have been open discussions about various things we could do aside from some expected and anticipated presentations from our sponsors. I did mention musicians will be coming and @carrieallen, @chrisroberts and @enginewitty will also be 'performing'! Here's some ideas (a few concrete) that we have come up with:

Event Ideas & Performers

  • A LIVE comedic acting performance by Carrie, Chris & Witty (The Lord of the D) featuring scripts from their show - The Play House! This will happen and it'll be an absolute blast!
  • @zipporah - has agreed to come to Colorado and share her beautiful voice with us! Maybe we can even get her on stage for some of The Play House characters!
  • @katrina-ariel - A smashing performance at #steemfest has landed her in the eyes of many and she has won #openmic since then. Her voice is captivating and we are looking forward to seeing her live again!
  • @paintingangels - Another of the chain's wonderful voices, has agreed to come and give us a special show! We are definitely looking forward to meeting her and hearing her play and sing!
  • @sirlunchthehost - YES! He will be bringing along his musical talents and comedic experience to help entertain everyone, plus, will be helping to design and distribute some the sweet gear we have planned to drop for ya!
  • @raybrockman - Did you say a live pour? Shiver me timbers mateys! This be some mighty fine booty ye be bringing!
  • @mariannewest - We can all do it on the computer just fine, but how about a live freewrite session? Heck, Witty will even get in on that one!
  • @bethalea - Bring your butt over here and play some poker with us! With real cards! THAT would be super cool!
  • Several of the sponsors will have representatives there giving speeches and presentations on their communities and companies like @adsactly, @steembasicincome, @thealliance and more!

I've hired the rowboat, I'm picking @silverstackeruk up on the way (I need someone to help row). We will see you there!

Ha ha! Excellent! We will build you a sail to speed things along :D

Welshy that seems legit. Bring a life jacket 🤣

Sorry, Wi-Fi is a bit dodgy out here in the Atlantic. Ssuk sends his love and says we won't be long.

This looks abso-fucking-lutely amazing. I hope I'm feeling sane by then!

you better be, I just got plane tickets

Everyone is really going all out to make this party awesome! HUGS to everyone who is involved for all of the efforts you're putting in!

I think that the idea to have a party house is pretty inspired, not to mention fitting to a 'block party'! Any guesses who is on kitchen duty? 🍽

So cool. This is probably better than the hotel!

Excited for my fellow Steemians and wish I could make this one!
