I doubt if any of us can say we haven't been touched by Breast Cancer. Both my mother and Graham's mother had it, and so did my best friend. I am encouraged however, by the raised level of awareness, the reseach, and the opportunities that we have to help win the fight against Breast Cancer. There are so many times when we feel helpless, but actually doing something to help fight Breast Cancer is certainly one of the times when we can do something. Why not now?

Walk for the cure; donate balloon decor for the cure;
do whatever you can do to support
BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH
!

..... RMS Breast Cancer Ribbon
Rouse International, along with you, wants to help.

Balloon Graphics Using RouseCAD™ Software
Dale Moore, CBA, CRA: assisted by Greg Arrigoni, CBA, CRA
Presented by Rouse International LLC

Come to the RouseCAD™ class to learn how to use Rouse computer assisted design software. RouseCAD is™ a computer program specifically programmed to design with hexagonal grids. Creating a sculpture or mural needs to start with a drawing. See how easy and professional this can be done using RouseCAD™. Dale and Greg will show how the software converts your picture or drawing into an easy to use balloon graphic. The design tools allow you to change and enhance the balloon graphic to your specifications. Designing balloon graphics is fun and easy using the RouseCAD™ software.

Balloon Sculptures Using RMS™ Grid - Hands-on!
Dale Moore, CBA, CRA; assisted by Greg Arrigoni, CBA, CRA
Presented by Rouse International, LLC

For beginners and advanced balloon artists, Dale and Greg will teach the steps to create incredible balloon sculptures using RMS™ Grid. You can use stock sculpture designs or create your own. Stock RMS™ designs include fish, snowflakes, a sea horse and many others, as well as shapes such as stars and hearts.

Come join Dale and Greg and learn how easy it can be to create custom, spectacular balloon sculptures in both single and double layer techniques to create amazing designs. As you know, Greg is so good at rigging, and he will show you some of his best rigging tips for RMS™.

Best of all, Dale and Greg will put the RMS™ Grid into your hands and let you play.

Don't Miss The First Ever RMSJAM™ !

Rouse International is sponsoring its first ever RMSJAM™ on Friday, November 6, from 9:00 PM to Midnight.

Dale Moore, CBA, CRA, and Greg Arrigoni, CBA, CRA, representatives of our RouseABOUT Family, will be hosting the RMSJAM™ during Carl and Jason's Friday Night Frenzy. The event is scheduled in Sequoia 1 and 2 (also known during FLOAT as the BalloonHQ.com Competition Gallery).

And there's "Moore" + Arrigoni.....
"In addition to the RMSJAM™, Dale and Greg are going to be producing a large RMS™ mural of the FLOAT Logo. If you're interested in coming in early (Tuesday morning, November 3) to FLOAT, and helping with this project, please email Dale by clicking here: andonballoons@yahoo.com or call him at: (612) 866-0353.

OK. You asked for them, so here they are:
"FREDDIE FOOTBALL" AND "FORREST UMP"

"Freddie Football" and "Forrest Ump" are easy, impressive, 2D RMS™ figures. All you have to do is load the balloons with the RMS™ Double Layer Technique (IT'S SOOOO EASY!), and then cut out your guys. The figures that Silvia and Sandra made are 6' tall and are made with RMS™ Banners.

Just think how well "Freddie Football" and "Forrest Ump" will complement some balloon goal posts and/or other balloon football decor!

MAKE "REAL MEN" OF THE BOYS

Rouse Matrix football playwe and referee in 6 foot and 12 foot szes
Sandra Moreira & Sylvia Santos stand with these 6' and 12' RMS™ football figures.

 

 

If you are working in a gym or another big venue, make "real men" of the boys. Use 8 RMS™ Builder panels instead of 4 RMS™ Banner panels, along with 11" balloons instead of 5" ballons. Suddenly you have 12' RMS™ Linebackers on the field! Every team needs a backfield like THIS!

Get even more cool figures by making a front and back. You know, a face on one side and the helmet on the other.

Greg Arrigoni used this idea with his Gingerbread Girl/Boy Buffet Centerpiece. It's one figure, but two-sided.

Awwww.... Aren't they adorable?
RMS™ 2D is so easy. YOU can make these cuties too!

A little thinking will be required to figure out the doublets for the two sides of the figure, but OH MY! It will be worth it! We'd love to see some pics. In fact.....

LET'S HAVE AN RMS™ 2D DESIGN CONTEST!
Contest starts NOW; ends October 31.

Who will be the first to make a two-sided football player?
