*This is not a flash mob but a related event promoted and hosted by the AFM*
After the success of our Ninja Recuitment Run we have decided to have a Ninja Raid on Adelaide, hosted by the AFM. The event will involve everyone dressing up as ninja’s and have several ninja events finishing with a ninja photoshoot. Ninja attire is mostly black with a black t-shirt fashioned into a Ninja head piece like this.
We are going to do some extensive promoting of this event with flyers and posters and are expecting to get alot of people to come along. Help us out by putting up posters at your work/school/uni/fridge and of course bringing all your friends along.
The Adelaide Flash Mob now has a presence on MySpace. While Facebook is quite large and useful for organising events, MySpace is even bigger and we are missing out on reaching a significant number of people who are loyal to MySpace so we have decided to create this group because the more people we get for our Flash Mobs, the better they will be.
If you are a MySpace user yourself or you know people who are then please invite them to the group.
Our no pants event was mentioned on ‘The Today Show’ in the U.S. They were interviewing Charlie Todd, the founder of Improv Everywhere, and were discussing various ‘missions’ pulled off by the group.

We have created a UniSA Flash Mob Group as a special AFM project to try and attract more uni students. We will use this group to organise specific Uni Flash Mobs as well as events such as fundraisers and pub crawls. The group is managed through the UniLife (the professional student services provider for UniSA) website. Normally a group needs to get 10 *premium Unilife members before it become affiliated with UniSA/ Unilife but we have been given a special temporary trial period of affiliation to try and attract the premium members*.
That means that we need to attract many members quickly. Members don’t need to be premium but we do need at least 10 of them to remain affiliated. If you’re interested then head on over to the Unilife website clubs area and sign up for an account. Then visit our group home page and join up.
*Premium Membership of UniLife costs $20 and can be purchased online

or at any UniLife branch office. Premium Membership gets you a discount card with huge savings on restaurants, take-away, travel, accommodation and entertainment, Priority access to the UniLife Second Hand Books Service and 20% off ALL UniLife ticketed events.
We’ve used many other channels in the past but these days Facebook is the main way we organise and promote our events so that’s where we suggest you follow us. We’ve been running for over 10 years now and many of our original organisers have moved on or are too busy to organise events. If you’d like to see an event happen, taking the lead yourself to organise it is the best way to ensure that it happens. Feel free to contact us through our Facebook page if you’re interested and we’d be happy to lend assistance with advice and promotion (keep in mind however, that posting on our page will only reach a small percentage of our audience organically so in order to get maximum exposure for your event you should consider doing a promoted post which might cost around $30 – $50).

Hello everyone once again.
My name is Nick and I have been brought on as an editor/ updater of the website. The reason that the site has been somewhat neglected of late is because myndphunkie (the administrator) and I have been quite busy. The Adelaide Flash Mob, however, has not been dormant during this time. First I should explain how this group and website came about.
In around September of 2007, I was browsing youtube and I came across a funny video consisting of about 100 people chasing one person down an alley way. The video was called ‘100 person Flash Mob
,’ and it prompted me do some searching to discover what Flash Mobbing was about. I became very interested, amused and excited about Flash Mobs and decided to found the Adelaide Flash Mob Group on Facebook to organise Flash Mobs in our wonderful city. I also created a group blog on blogger. I wanted to make sure that our blog was easy to find so I checked our google ranking by typing in Adelaide Flash Mob, and sure enough we were right near the top. A few days letter I checked again to see if we had made top spot and to my surprise there was another website there… www.adelaideflashmob.com (this site). Adelaide is years behind the Flash Mob craze yet both me and myndphunkie decided to start organsing them in Adelaide at almost the exact same time. Rather than competing with each other (which would have been pointless) we decided to combine out efforts and thats why we are now united as one group; the Adelaide Flash Mob.
Keep an eye on the website as I will be bringing it up to date with everything that has been going on with the Adelaide Flash Mob since its inception. In the meantime, check out our Facebook Group .
