Our weekend tournament is fast approaching...less than 4 weeks away! With committed entrants from 10 states (plus one from Canada!) already, it is shaping up to be everything I hoped it would be. While I feel everything is in very good shape preparation-wise, there are a number of things that I would love to have help on, if anyone has a bit of spare time.
Would anyone be willing to help with any of the following activities?
-Transportation: Be available to give (or arrange) rides to/from the airport or other hotels to Fairfield Inn. I'd like to be able to give your phone number and/or email to anyone needing assistance in this regard.
-Printing: This includes individual entrant tally sheets (on thick stock, double-sided if possible for the Main Event version), game reporting slips, blank/challenge slips, etc. It would be great if these could be color-coded by division. Bonus points for making name tags...people will be coming from all over the place, so I think they could be very helpful.
-Setup/Cleanup: Assist with setting up the room before the Early Bird on Friday. One or two folks that could arrive by, say, 4pm, would be sufficient. Similarly, 2-3 folks that can stay after on Sunday and help with cleanup would be great.
-Registrar: Help greet people and hand them their score sheets as they arrive. Collect any at-the-door entry fees for Early Bird or Night Bird. Keep me informed of any late arrivals or no-shows.
-Food: This is optional, and hotel guests have the continental breakfast, but I think it would be great if we could provide some home-baked goodies (or a fruit tray and bagels/donuts from Meijer or whatever) in the morning, along with maybe a pot of coffee and/or juice. Also, for lunch, we could look at catering options for anyone not interested in Cracker Barrel or going off-site. Anything that simplifies things for visitors is a good thing and makes them more likely to return. Anyone that has attended the Knoxville events knows what I mean here. I would love if someone could "own" this, and look at options and see what we could do.
If you can help with any of the above, or anything else I might have missed, please let me know as soon as possible. THANK YOU!
