Well, is there a leader in the midst? I think we may need one, or two working together, to head up the cause and keep things rolling.

Hi all - having put considerable effort into organizing in the past - I would also recommend a leader is needed - but I would encourage also a "Divide and Conquer" approach. There are several aspects to the event - marketing (banners, posters, web ads, promotion facebook, etc.) - events - Charity event? Request items from vendors? competitions and general planning, groups activities, etc. Hotel discounts, etc.

But I think it all starts with a vision. What do we want this year's event to be? What parts of the past events have been the most enjoyable? I can tell you the charity events are a fun thing to do and feel like a good contribution - but they also take the most planning - which charity - where - what is the event (silent auction, etc.).

Is there a goal for the event ? for example, let's make this bigger and better - or more public - or find more baggers - or is the primary purpose a reunion of friends (of course open to newcomers)? Think about those things and then some clear "assignments" will appear. A great event can be planned , and with enough "Hands to help" it can only take a few hours of each person's time.

I nominate Matthew as Chairman of the 2015 SPEEDB.A.G. committee!
...all those in favor say "I"


My thoughts-
I'd like to see the event grow and attract more baggers, I'd also like to see some of the benefits go to a good cause. We should bring back a charity and I'd propose that charity to be Rock Steady Boxing for 2015. By supporting this cause, we could leverage any & all advertising and work with Rock Steady to promote the event. I imagine we could even get them to attend.

I also believe that vendors would be happy to donate some gear to be auctioned off for such a great cause.

If the committee members support this idea, I would be glad to help arrange this.

I can also arrange a discount rate at the Best Western, as I did this last year.

So... lets get this ball rolling! PLEASE post your ideas, comments and what you might be able to help with to make this event bigger & better then ever.

Cheers,
-Zaza

Fine by me. For the record, We did RSB as a charity for SB-III in 2012. They were supposed to have someone attend but it fell through. I think they were doing a demonstration at a Parkinson's Conference.

committee

OK...a few ideas to think about:
Speed Bag VI needs a logo. For promotional material,Posters and T-shirts
Jersey Soup & Subs as well as the Irish resturant should be contacted for sponsers, caterers, or coupons.
An itenerary of any Demos,contests, or open sessions could be posted so we can attract spectators as well.
Registration fees can be set and pre registration can be explored.
Registration can include an event shirt as well as any swag obtained from manufacturers.
Just a few observations from a guy that had a blast last year !!!

I apologize if this is a 'private' thread for the senior bagger committee. Just want to throw out there that I'd be happy to help from behind the scenes if I can. Don't know if you need help and doubt I can make it to the event - but I'm certainly willing to help in any way. I'm in the DC area, have a background in writing/copy editing / social media marketing and dabble with the creative arts too. (see www.flutterface.com) Let me know If I can be of any assistance. Again, sorry for the intrusion and hope it's a great event.
