PLAN Preparation

  • cpg is not going to be the VP of OPs so we will need a group of people to work on plan.
  • Hardison will help us make a list of things to do that we will need to organize plan.
  • The group of people that are going to help with plan will need to be able to make important decisions.
  • People will need to be able to be committed if they want to help.
  • We will need to organize plan far in advance so we will not need to worry about setting things up shortly before PLAN.
  • Since Hardison won’t be here during PLAN, we will definitely need people to help out.
  • sponsors should be a priority.
    • We should have one person dedicated to sponsors.
    • We should build our relationship with potential sponsors so we can get in contact with them quicker in the future.
    • We will definitely need help from giggles to get the League of Legends Riot sponsorship.
  • 501(c)(3) is a requirement for many businesses, but instead we may be able to obtain funds by putting them through the University.
  • Someone will need to rent out the rooms early at Parkview.
  • bigguy, our VP of finance, will be the person to help us get concessions.
    • We should focus on getting a wide variety and enough of popular items, since leftover items will go to Computer Club.
  • Additionally, the webmaster will need to set up the website in advance so people can sign up.
  • Pre-registration on the website should go up about a month in advance.
    • Pre-registration gives us general attendance information, tournament interest information, MAC addresses, and tournament team registration.
  • Posters should also go up early so people know about PLAN.
  • An Overwatch tournament is expected to bring in a lot more people.
  • If we need any more information or if we have any questions, we can contact Hardison.
  • Over the next couple weeks, we will be dividing the needed tasks for PLAN to multiple people.

Oculus Rift Computer

  • Our temporary machine for playing on the Oculus Rift is gone.
  • We should buy a new gaming PC if we want to power the Oculus Rift.

Lockpicking Demo
