Default 2016 MNRCRC Schedule Planning

Step 1 - We first need to identify the dates that we need to avoid. I'm looking for things like holidays and big events that will pull #'s from our club (i.e. Crawl for a Cure). We should also note other major events that we need to work around. A good example would be knowing when Grandma's Marathon is and not scheduling anything in Duluth that weekend. I'll start us off and keep adding as I think of more. But if you know of something, please post and I'll keep the O.P. updated.

**Phase 2** (2/7/16)
Next, we need to decide what weekends to hold the 12 events on. We normally try to avoid back-to-back weekends, as well as going more than 3 weeks between events. We'll decide what events next, right now just what weekends. I laid out what I think will work in Blue. Let me know what you think.

**Phase 3** (2/13/16)
Next step is to layout what type of event and location. I've found that doing these at the same time usually works best to help see the big picture. Green

**Edited three locations for scaler GTG's. These are in Orange.***

I know Barry, Nick, Josh, and myself will be gone for Nenc, and Ecc and battlegrounds if they have it. Anyone that would like to go with us get a hold of me so we know who all is interested.

Bearing in mind Josh's post, the schedule that Nerby posted works for me EXCEPT for the May 15th Byron and Oct. 2nd Finals. Both those we will be doing 1:1 events.

Thanks for getting the ball rolling Kevin!

Thanks for your suggestion. Couple thoughts...

-If we push the first comp forward a week, we could also throw in a casual test n tune on the 10th.
-I wouldn't feel comfortable holding an event at Byron if Bill & Josh can't be there.
-The "BATTLE AT THE BORDER" (not border battle) would probably have a better turn out if it was before school started. I'm thinking July or Aug.
-I think the "HOWL KRAWL" (not crawl) should be the day before Halloween rather than a week before.


And yes, I am going to be a stickler about the names above. In bold and underlined are the names that we have been using for 10 years!!!

Check the first post for my phase 2 (blue)

Like Dana says, I'll take silence as acceptance.

Ok. I've added Phase 3 (event type and location). Again, this is all open to suggestions. Post up your thoughts.

Wouldn't the July 31 event be on the 30th if it is to be the Battle at the Border?
Looks really good.

Yeah, it would be best to have the Battle At The Border on a Saturday. I just have everything on Sundays for now while we hash out the particulars.

I don't think the boomsite is a big enough area for a event, at least not a G6 or U4.
