So the first Northwest Majors is done and I think it went really well. I?d like to plan the next one for Summer at around the same time. I really want to know what you guys want to see at the next tournament and what you think would make it unique and great. I also really want everyone to feel as free as possible to get involved and be a part of the planning. If there is something you really want to be a part of the tournament, then post up and we can start working on it.
My two biggest goals for the next major right now are
- 300 person attendance (registered players)
- Obtain a sponsor(s)
There are a lot of other goals, but these are ones I feel are most important to achieve.
There are also a few things we can start working on.
- Setting a tenative date
- Looking for a venue that will meet our specifications
- Start talking about other goals and figuring out a timeline
I would also like to write up a mission statement. Something that says exactly what we are trying to do. This would really help for getting sponsors when they ask us what we are trying to do and why they should sponsor us, and it will help give us direction in planning the tournaments.
So with ten months to work on it, I think we can do a lot if we start now. If people really want to get involved with the planning, we should start to meet up in person and figure out timelines and delegate tasks. There is a lot to decide on, so meeting in person is best. If anyone is willing to meet up, post up and we?ll figure out a time.
I am going to start posting up planning ideas, but I want to hear what you guys think first.
