View Full Version : Royal Sponsorships

I've been asked to put together a bid for a company sponsorship at the American Royal this year. I don't know where to start, except for looking at the cost of the meat, other foods, entry fees, etc. and marking it up. Any suggestions would be helpful.

Here's what I'm thinking:

Tea and Water
If they want booze, they supply it and stock it themselves
A big damn tent to hold 50 people
DJ entertainment
Extra $ to cover my entry and meat for two contests
Extra wrist bands for entries to the party night

What else am I forgetting?

Porta Pottys, fencing to close area, tables, chairs, music or band, security staff.

There is no cost for entry into meat contest only the sides. Entry cost is space rental and can be significant depending on size. Many of the bigt parties use straw bails to define the area. These are about $8.00 each. Plates, eating uttensils, napkins, cups, ice, electricity rental ($30.00 per with a limit of 3 things plugged in per). Booze is suppose to be bought from the Royal and they will deliver it to you. Aluminum serivng pans. Don't leave out even the smallest cost. It adds up. Serving gloves. That is just a start. Keith
