ok here is my plan!i wanna make a jam in my town,with my club(in wich i am the only member right now) and a whole bunch of other shredders!
first of all,it will take place in summer next year,so i have time too plan everything,the place i wanna do it closes for winterbreak anyways!
the actual cool thing is,i will make it in a public open air pool area.one realy big plus would be,if the weather is fine we would have average of 3000 possible spectators!!!!i work there,i told my boss my plan...and he was just blasted away,he was like,yeah give all of your footbag friends a free tickets,let them hang out there the whole day,do your bag thing and so,he even wanted to call his friend who works for a newspaper here to tell him to show up and make pics and write a cool article...so full back up from my boss,means location is clear,press is definatly coming,so it will make an impact here...
but,i now need some advise from experienced people,who did this stuff before,cause i would like to have a litttle workshop thing maybe,some handout bags and so on....but i dont know were to start,bags will be no prob,when i start now stiching 4 panels,i could do a few 100´s till then but,how should i organize the workshop thing?what do u(if u ever made one)did in your workshops,what was made in workshops u took part in?and i even dont know if i realy make this workshop thing....but if i get some cool ideas together i do it.if not...this will be just a jam,a realy cool one i guess cause when youre done shredding u can go swimming,we have a huge slide wich is realy fun....so it will be cool.and i look forward to get it packed together with some kind of bandcontest(we have a lot of them,since we have a realy active young music scene)or a skating contest or something like this.but to make it a contest i would need some judges and enough players...so i guess it will come down to just a demonstration in the end...but i think it will get huge!
so what do u guys think?please gimme some advise if u have one!
oh i forgot one thing!does anyone knows when the worlds take place next year?in wich month would be enough to know,cause i dont wanna make a event during worlds,cause noone would be here,not even i!and euros and german masters would be also cool to know
so if someone has a little hot wire to some organisators,i would be glad to know some dates,u can also pm or email to me if u dont wanna tell here in public!
hey jochen...thanks yeah i will put those 2 cents in my box and we see what comes out of it! yeah i was thining about one week before worlds would rule,since they are in germany,and maybe some international players are in germany 1 week before,so that would rule!
accomodation is no problem,in the worst case of them all we put some tents beside tzhe pool area and we just sleep there! but i have a big place to get them all!i hope i can have it!
for having it a tournament...as i said,i would do a demo,but since we would be the whole day in puplic,and everyone would see us anyway...yeah a tournament would rule,but i dont have any glue...i wanted to contact our beloved big footbag clubs anyway,as well as plaet footbag...
yeah...anyway,thanks a whole bunch of thanks man,i hope i see u there!
i can mail you a german tournament guide that paul and stefan typed together.
yet i thhink you will need some people to help you in organization and all that stuff that happens during a tournament/jam.
yes yes...help is sooo needed...i hope on some footbagers and some of my friends to help me out,first of all during the event!cause even if we just jam,i guess there are a lot of things that can happen...but i have some reliable people allready on my hands,they just need to give me a "ok i´m in"
please send me that guideline...please, i think this would be a cool thing too have!
and jochen,we need to get this freedom footbag flyer translated till then,i wanna give them out!!!
ps:justin you´re warm welcomed to participate if the time is ok then...but i will tell during the next month when i am going to make it...
ok,today i made some big steps towards this event!i thought about a date,and i think i have one.it maybe will take place on the first weekend jn june,its a long weekend and it will be warm and stuff.i will need to find out when exactly worlds and euros are,but that is somehow makeable!i hope!
then,i have permission to get a bordered area for net play!its about 20 to 30 m²,i hope this will be enough!any net players?how much space will i need for 2 net fields?
then i have enough space for freestyle,i made a pic of the site we are shredding at.i post it lower.
then i have a raining emergency plan,allthoug i just hope i wont need it.since it is immpossible to get some kind of a gym here,i just managed to have a little jam inside of the then closed baiding hall.that will ruleempty pool shredding!!i guess some nice vids could be made there! full metal pool,we can have a nice reflection thing there!may look cool in vids!
then i have a plan for sleeping,if someone wants to.i could just take my genral key and let ourselfes into a loker room of a local soccer club,i have some kind of "permission" from my boss.sleeping in sleepbags should be nothing new for shredders! we would have to be out there in the morning,but we could just go into freebath and chill around there untill everyone is recovered and let the event run down chlled,have a nice breakfast in the sun and so...i think its cool...
the freestyle place is awesome,its with those walkway stones,and its huge,u can just see...like half of it!i dont know if the size is correct,it may be a bit more or a bit less...anyway,we have the rest of the bath for us too,allthough i like to get this concentrated in the entrance area,since everyone will have too pass there!just imagine this all with more sun and a lot of people and some shredders!great!
so untill now this whole event will going to be great...i just hope some shredders will show up when the time has come!oh my date would be a holiday,pfingsten,dont know in english,but i know that everyone has the weekend of that for! so no excuses!
i dont know, didnt read all that, only that it will be the first weekend of june.
keep in mind that in early june (so probably pfingsten there will be euros in lausanne, so nobody would come to your event.
fc footstar berlin
yeah if someone could tell me when the big events will take place i could organise some dates....but somehow noone seems to be able to tell me something!and if euros would be around pfingsten then i wouldnt participate in my own event!
so again:someone tell me dates of worlds and euros and gfo!!!
yeah i know... ...but i´m a bit of a spoiled brat...i allways wait untill someone moves first so i dont need to do anything...i contacted some guys before,i was told to call some guys,but i allways forget it ort have no time or something!...but u are absolutly right,i need to get my ass moving... ...thanks for the reminder!
