For those who don't know, in my non-blogging life, I'm an unofficial secretary!
My husband is the chairman of the supporters club for our local football team. I am his unofficial secretary, writing, typing, printing and creating various tables, predictors and minutes from meetings as well as running the club shop on match days.
It's hard work, but I secretly enjoy it!
Well, to add to the fun, in the off season, the supporters club is looking at fundraising for a stand for the fans, as well as raising money for charity.
It was decided that we could run a community event, where local football clubs, businesses and community groups could enter teams to take it turns to play 7 a side football for a grand total of 24 hours!
I didn't realise how much organising it would take. As Mark works, I've been writing notes, planning and brainstorming. So far my notebook looks a complete mess!
On my list of things we need, I've got:
- Players (!)
- First aiders
- Gazebo/pop up tents (for heat)
- Video/photography (for social media coverage)
- Refreshments - BBQ for day time?
- Volunteers- refreshments
- Crowdfunding page (for sponsorship)
- Online registration
- Floodlights and generator (for night games)
Luckily, we have a location. Our local football ground. However, it is everything else that needs sorting!
We've only got a couple of months to organise everything. I'm worried I'm a little bit out of my depth!
I have so many ideas, and I really hope we do a good job. I would love for this to be a great community event for the local area.
Has anyone else run an event like this? Is there anything I've not got on my list?
