The Most Important Date In History: 111111
The time has come.The Wales are aligning.The date which most closely resembles Corduroy, EVER,111111is upon us!Rejoice. Rejoice! Our day has come.
To commemorate this momentous date and honor thy Corduroy, many happenings are occurring. Of foremost importance will be the 6th, perhaps, maybe and probably likely the final Annual Grand 111111 Meeting. As this is surely our Grandest hour this will be our Grandest Meeting and marked by unparalleled grandeur at a location befitting our most glorious fabric. We shall convene at the magnificent Refectory at The Desmond Tutu Center on 10th Avenue in New York, NY. There, these activities will likely occur:
• Dark Secret Rituals (No photography please)
• Presentation of Awards for Exemplary Usage of Corduroy
• Awards for Best Dressed
• A person (to be determined, and of some gravitas) to deliver a keynote address
• Installation of Corduroy Messiah (child – still at large! – that shall turn 11 on 111111)
• Singing, Dancing and Poetry inspired by Corduroy
• An open bar with Beer and Wines• Additional epic and historic things
“Doors” will open for Meeting check-in at 7:30 pm and the Meeting will commence, promptly, at 8:11 pm. We will (attempt to) adjourn at the most auspicious time of 11:11 pm.
Tickets can be purchased here. As we expect reCord attendance please purchase your admission as soon as possible. This will allow us to accommodate everyone comfortably.
Please note: the Two Item Rule is NOT in EFFECT! We are instituting a THREE ITEM RULE! That means, you must wear THREE (3) items of Corduroy. You can do it!
Also—details are accumulating regarding something called: The 11 Days of Corduroy. This will commence on November 1, or 111, a date which closely resembles Corduroy. (Details regarding this extraordinary initiative to follow, here.)
Additionally, we are thrilled to announce the release of the first official Corduroy Appreciation Club pant. In collaboration with Betabrand, makers of Cordarounds™, 111 pairs of pants will be released on 10/11/11. Before they are consumed by the less-appreciative public, a limited time pre-sale for CAC Members is happening right now. We urge you to seize this rare and extraordinary opportunity!
In other Cord-related news: we recommend this handy resource for those looking to outfit themselves for the 11 Days of Corduroy, the Grandest Date and beyond. Also, we have restocked Membership Materials and some popular tie colors. These updates will be reflected on the website—once we figure out how to do that.
Hail the Wale!
Quite Cordially,The Corduroy Appreciation Club
