I'm relieved to learn that there have been previous CSTS events in Sydney - and am especially glad that the 06 screening was held in the George Street cinemas, hopefully that means they will be willing to do it again this year!
And I would absolutely love for you to be my mentor! Some guidance would be welcomed - though my first goal is still to get some friends together in a team to help me plan. And I'll definitely start frequenting the Aussie websites and forums, as well as attending the Supanova Expo.
My plan of action to start is this:
1. Organise a team. I have plenty of nerdy friends, including some Firefly fans, who I will talk to during the week.
2. Determine a possible venue, possible date, rough numbers, as well as a goal for the amount of money I hope to raise.
3. Contact the venue (hopefully George Street cinemas).
4. Register on this website, before March 31st.
Feel free to offer advice or tips on any of the above. If you'd rather contact me by email, my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks so much!
