Gentle readers,
 As we are working on the planning for the next event(s), we are also looking for ways to increase attendance at these events.

Please feel free to submit your ideas here and we will review and consider any and all suggestions.

Thanks!

hmmm, let me think on it....

Radio perhaps, but costs
I think timing has a lot to do with it.

Also focusing on advertising earlier.

Secure prizes earlier, to give people more incentive to make it fit their schedules.

Possibly have a few computers available for people to rent who don't have pc's.

32 hours is just too long.

Publish a tentative tournaments schedule sooner.  Base it on the number of teams signing up and adjust as more teams sign up.  Set up the tournament sign up online.

See if we can get a couple vendors to offer hardware etc. for sale at the event, then they might advertise the event in their store.

There used to be a computer sale at the radial hall once a month and one somewhere in lavista.  Perhaps there is a way to advertise there.

See if there is a way to get into some High Schools.

That's all the ideas I have for now.

As was noticed at the last lan party, it's the inability to control the foul language after repeated requests to do just that.

I wasn't just picking on you young punks.  It's just more fun for all if a little self control is exercised.

Not all "punks" are young, and there are several high school kids show more restraint and self control than us adults.  Careful with the prejudice.  We run the risk no matter how we promote of having people with foul mouths and lack of self control at our evetns.  Bottom line is we need to be proactive, ensure the standard is set, example is demonstrated, and violators and warned once, and then removed.

It just needs to be communicated that not everyone uses that language and we also have certain children approved/allowed to participate in these tournaments. If participants cannot use self control/restraint than there will be a warning. If that does not solve the issue, then they will be asked to leave.

Rico,
 Be glad your parents care enough to check on you.  Some kids have parents that don't even care enough to ask about ANYTHING!

I have found that in my house I cannot curse at all.  Even if I had just hammered my thumb, the slightest utterance will get me told on by my daughters faster than Wolfy runs from Spade.

It is a scientifically proven fact that...

[list=1]
  • Children will ALWAYS tell on dad.
  • Wolfy never runs from Spade, only with him.
  • Hammers are designed to hit thumbs first.
