Lessons Learned

  • Put up fliers at Lucky Dice cafe & The Deep. Probably that coffee place in the mill as well, and Clay's workshop if he'll allow it.
  • Advertise in the Discord board game group
  • Send a picture of what the donation box looks like to the vendors (add it to the application)
    • Send reminders about suggested donation to vendors just before the event
  • If doing burgers, shoot for 60. On the slow year, we sold exactly 40. Don't worry about running out, when they're out, they're out.
  • Put the barricades up at 8:30, and let vendors know the barricades will go up at 8:30
  • Have $50 in one dollar bills for making change
  • Have the key to the soda machine on hand for the day of the event.
  • Send notice about the event to friendly groups more than a month in advance. We'll have the date locked down well before that anyway.
    • HEMA, etc.
