Hosting our own event?


There has been a lot of talk and enthusiasm about us hosting our own event. There has been enough of it That I think we should get the ball rolling.


Something that you need to keep in mind is hosting an event is not the same as going to and participating in an event. It's work. We wont be fighting a whole lot, if at all. What most of us will be doing is troll, security, Heraldry, weapons check, errand running, night life organizing, cleaning, etc. It is work but it has the potential to be fulfilling work within the game. And I think we can pull off a great one.
 

Now that that is out of the way, the first thing we need to discuss is location. I've been looking for one for a while with no success so we need help. We need a location that will allow a campfire/s, space enough for 30-60 people to camp, and access to water.
Things that we would like but dont need, is access to bathrooms, allows drinking, and perhaps has kitchen or great hall area that could be used.

Post info you got emoticon

Don't aim so low. I would aim for at room for at least 100 people in case units like Atlantis, WotS groups, and GTG come in addition to the non affiliated fighters of Florida.

It's not really that. This is our first event. It's a lot to handle with just the number I suggested and in the grand scheme of things, most of us are still new to the game. On that same note, this being our first event there is no precedence showing that we have proven we can run a good event that will be worth the drive. I know we can, we have to show others we can. That and it's hard enough finding a place I described above. If we get lucky and find a bigger one then great. For right now that is the minimum of what we need.

The only problem with hosting a day battle is that we would only be able to maybe draw North Florida Floridians and not Central Florida Floridians. While there are lots of awesome fighters in Jacksonville/Pensacola, there are a lot more fighters in the lower parts of the state. A campout would have enough of an appeal to get people to come give it a shot. No one wants to drive four hours to fight for two and drive fours hours again (except for maybe Magnus).

We really dont need people to come up that far for a day battle in order for us to get practice for events. It is well within reason that we can do both day battles and a camp out.

I ran some numbers and sent some links to meager already.

There is a place in Tallahassee called Dog Lake, it has enough room for our purposes, and good grounds to camp on. You can rent this spot from the city for $100.

[sign in to see URL]<-- This is how we reserve room and locate the best area for what we're doing

 All we need from there is restroom facilities which are a $150 per unit per day (this is an estimate and I will be double checking and researching more thoroughly.)

Tallahassee is also well know for it's affordable hotel and liquor prices which will attract a lot of people. If we can raise the money to do this we can promote it at the Next Ides and Winter War. May is a great time of year to fight in Tally emoticon I hope this helps and I really look forward to doing this!
