im down for helping sponsor, organize if its in Houston. I can provide some kind of prize package as well. I know a couple of people to help.
also, the bill liebowitz classic has an excellent contest format. its a little out of the ordinary, which is why I think it would work excellent for TX.
here’s a link : http://www.riotmouse.com/blc/
shoot me a message, if you want we can start planning for spring break.
The things of big concern that would be needed:
JUDGES (I say 3, kyle being one, im sure he could point us in the direction of the others)
SPONSORS (not too hard)
PRIZES (Even easier)
EXCELLENT LOCATION (FREE and somewhere that’s public enough to alert any media to the contest is great)
all the other stuff shouldn’t be too hard to get, banners, media, social media organizing.
ive got an amazing graphic designer in mind to create the contest logo.
and I don’t mind designing and hosting a page on my website that we can redirect to.
Edit: kyle let me know if ive forgotten anything important here.
also, years ago, Leo Qin posted a amazing article about organizing and hosting contests and clubs on the Old YYN forum, it should be archived…
