first yeard participating - need help with setting up an event

Recommended Posts

Hi.

 

 I live in SE Wisconsin and this is the first year that I am participating. I have a local gaming store that is willing to host an event but they're looking for more information on what they would need to do for that. Is there any information online on how a store would go about hosting an event?  I'm looking for any kind of guidance that anyone can give me on what to do. I've tried reaching out to my local guild but to be honest, they weren't really that helpful.

Heya @alautz!

 

TLDR - "Just Do it."  ;~)

 

https://www.extra-life.com <- It may go without saying.  But first and foremost make a team and get you and any and all other planners, store peeps and your friends etc., involved.

 

And make as much use of the materials and assets in  https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.page&id=1308 as you can.  While doing whatever you all want to do locally that you think will bring in and engage patrons of the store and whomever you reach out to socially.  All while keeping Extra Life the focus of what its all for.

 

https://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=cms.home <- Really going through About, Experience, and Community will give you more breadth and depth of understanding about it all.

 

Perhaps most importantly make sure you and everyone involved has as well defined "Why?" as in why you "Extra Life" as you can.  So when you're talking about it to others you'll exude a genuine without effort that people will see and feel.  And you don't even have to have it defined and keep it simple and say I've only recently learned about or started participated because you liked the idea of using your passion for gaming for a good cause.

 

Hopefully this was at least a little bit more helpful.  It really boils down to knowing about the cause.  Making it your own.  And running with it however you see fit best.  As long as its all done with good intention and positivity you can not hardly go wrong.
