One of my friends was looking for ideas for fund raising events for his college honor society. We thought it would be pretty awesome to hold a game night/tournament at the college he attends (Stetson University, Deland FL, about 2,200 students). Unfortunately as far as I know, there is not much, if any, of an established FG scene there already.
I was just wondering if anybody had any ideas as to what would be the best way to go about gauging what kind of interest/attendance there would be in an event like this? More importantly, is there some way to structure an event so that we might be able to approximate what kind of funds we could expect to raise and tell if it would be worth it for the honor society to put their effort and name behind it?
I know this is a pretty specific scenario, but any help/feedback would be appreciated.
Also, I know I read some articles about fostering a FG community/tournament organizing how-to, but I can’t find it anywhere. Link anyone? Found it! It was on www.option-select.com
