As we continue to progress (not quickly enough!) towards that awesome weekend in July I thought we should get started now lining up volunteers for the weekend. For each of the following areas/categories I am looking for one person who can oversee the category and coordinate other volunteers within that category. Hopefully this will make more sense after I list the categories:

Guinness World Record(s) - (Director - Indigo Ferret)Coordinating all things related to filing the paperwork, getting names of all who are participating, etc.

Food - Help organize the meals being brought in during the Guinness portion. Also take reservations and coordinate other meals at local restaurants for the group.

Sponsorships - (Director - dacoto) Contact companies to get SWAG sent to us for doorprizes and other items to give away at the event. Example might be the Red Bull girls, Tritton/Madcatz headsets, Microsoft, etc.

Registration and Welcome Crew - (Director - ThrR4nMyWolfpak, UberToast, MyFryHole, Tandar1) Keeping track of players as they arrive and making sure all seats are correctly assigned and equipped. This will need to be someone arriving on Friday earlier in the day.

Boosting Sessions - (Director - pTartTX, futiles, Partypeeps) For those coming on Friday and staying until Monday there will be tons of time for boosting sessions. Some discussions have already started, but we need a person to take the lead on setting up a schedule of these side events.

Promotion - (Director - the dren, Fafhrdd) I need a street team that can help promote the event. We are almost at 25% full with 5 months left to go, but there should be no reason we don't sell out this event. Cross promotion with other achievement sites will help.

Travel - Futiles started a thread along these lines, but we need something official that someone can coordinate directions of travel, times arriving at the airport. Also this group can help maintain records of the hotels with room blocks we have reserved and getting folks to-and-from the hotels to the venue.

In ALL of these cases I am going to be very involved helping those who have volunteered to direct those areas. For example I am meeting with the local Convention and Visitor's Bureau tomorrow morning to get the hotel rooms ironed out with multiple locations so there are choices in cost, proximity to eBash, etc.

UberToast and I would like to volunteer for the registration portion of the event. I'll keep an updated spreadsheet of people that are signed up on AchievementFest.com. We will be arriving late Thursday/very early Friday, so we could meet up with you to go over specifics anytime on Friday. At least after 10AM. LOL!!

Edit - Uber will post shortly confirming my statement.

Is there any official word from Guinness or Twin Galaxies or whomever to give some credibility to the event? Has it been officially sanctioned or whatnot yet?

Would help in the SWAG department. If there was some way to prove that we have a legit event scheduled it would go a lot farther for sponsorship.

The registration process is very straight-forward and simple through their website. It takes 6-8 weeks to get their "approval" back to then proceed with the record attempt.

Indigo Ferret has a contact at Twin Galaxies he is going to reach out to in the meantime to see if we can get some inside assistance.

One thing we will need to do is an individual application for each person attempting the single player record. The group one can be more open-ended, since we don't have to list everyone's names until the event takes place.

So, everyone who is attempting needs to register 2 months in advance? Or have we heard back as far as the whole event is concerned?

Has IF heard back from TG?

I sent you an email through the site with all of this stuff as well.

So I found out that Twin Galaxies was NOT involved in the prior Guinness record. Apparently they are involved when a record deals with a specific game high score or something of that nature. Frankly I am surprised that they would not be involved due to the potentially technical nature of this record.

My request was forwarded to Guinness and they have contacted me with what appears to be a generic "Thanks for attempting a record, please register at our website".

I am trying to follow up with a real person regarding the specific rules and details surrounding the individual record, but I am also registering at the Guinness website (http://member.guinnessworldrecords.com/register/login.aspx) and I will be submitting a record attempt to see what further information I might have access to online. If it takes 4-6 weeks for them to reply to a record setting request, I will probably have more info sooner if the live person can help me.

I will keep you all updated.

Good deal. Keep us informed.

I'm going to be a day behind on this recon work. I had to stay home today thanks to a 2 year old with double pink eye :/

Boosting director would be someone that figures out what games could be boosted, who is interested in boosting what, how long it takes to boosts those achievements and working out a time schedule for it.

If you are interested in this task, I can be of assistance, I have been known to schedule a pretty efficient boosting session.

Sorry, I should have been more thorough with my original answer. I can handle duties you have stated above. I am a bit of a organizational freak, just ask Mr. pTart. I am quite handy with Excel and I do host a good amount of boosting sessions. But, futiles, I will not turn down any help

EDIT: since you bragged on yourself, I am going to brag on me. I am known to run efficient boosting sessions as well, just look at my feedback on TA

Update the main post to this point with volunteer names.

Each of you feel free to start putting together your ideas and putting things in motion. I had a great meeting with the Visitor's Bureau today and they are getting the blocks of hotel rooms set-up for us at a few different places. They should give us a discount rate, all you need to do is mention Achievement Fest when you book the room.

Also they have given us the run of their shuttle van for the 4 day weekend. I have a few guys that will drive it back-and-forth from the airport, so we can coordinate rides for those flying in who do not want to get a rental car to-and-from the airport and then also around town to the different hotels.

Something to think about for promotion and sponsorship would be Gamer Grub and Monster Energy. This event would be a perfect fit for both those brands and I'm sure in the end there will be at least some press coverage on this.

Are you going to post something about this event on your main page? Something on the main terrehaute.ebash page would be nice.

Also, unless I'm just failing at the internets, I don't see any mention of eBash on the achievementfest page either.

Before I send out these sponsoship emails, it would be nice if these pages promoted each other. Some companies might want to look into what it is they're about to sponsor.

We added the eBash and 360voice logos to the top of the Achievement Fest page. Dacoto is hard at work on heading up the sponsorship side. He and I are brainstorming some ideas and there are some really cool ideas.

MyFryHole I have added you to the registration group and also I am changing it to also encompass a type of "Event Host" role. So for example you guys will be in charge of as much meet-and-greet as possible. I am sure I won't have much time to be able to make every person comfortable when they first arrive, so your group can get players checked in, provide their swag bag, help them get their equipment to their seats and generally make everyone feel welcome. :)
