Default Sponsorships for your teams...

We've discussed the how's and why's before but what kind of ideas do you all have for 2006 as far as obtaining sponsors? I'm attaching a draft of a flyer I just completed (been thinking about how to do it for weeks). What are your thoughts on doing things this way? And if you like the ideas or they give you some off-shoot ideas, feel free to take it and use it (except for the logo of course!).

Does the sponsor dinner occur at competition? having to feeding an extra 20 people would be a hassle I wouldn't want to take on at a contest. Extra people hanging around, expecting to be entertained is just asking for trouble.

Maybe you could have a sponsor's night party before the season begins and another one when the season ends.

That's a GREAT idea, Rob! I think that will be something I run by my two team members. Thanks!

I am with Rob on this one. If you have ever cooked a contest you know that it is controlled chaos. You sometimes have much to do and simply have not enough time to do it. Most of the biggies in our sport indicate that the details can be the difference at an event. It would be tuff to concentrate on those details when entertaining sponsors.

Sure, there's always extra meat, but if you read the sponsors agreement, there could be an extra 45 people hanging around. Now the sponsor's given his money and is expecting to be fed, lauded and entertained at the "Sponsor's dinner'. Having to do this when you're supposed to be concentrating on cooking perfect the BBQ, to me, would be an insane burden. I say it's better to do this at a seperate event.

What I'd do, and this is what I tell my friends and family, is tell the sponsor that they're free to stop in after turn-in and stay for the awards. There's plenty of time to feed them while waiting on the judges.

My only problem with this is that as soon as I bturn in my last item, I'm busting arse tyo break down, clean up and load! I barely have time to get it all done before the awards start...

What are you doing after the last turn in?

We usually take a little time to recover. Then the breakdown starts. If friends and family are there - they get put to work!

I couldn't imagine starting to break everything down right after turn in. We consider that time our "enjoy the moment" time. We rest, drink, eat, mingle with friends family and the public. We save the cleanup for after the awards.

I like to relax right after turn in also. THis is usually when I have my first beer. With any luck there are some family and friends there to start cleaning up.

One thought is if the sponsors are there to eat up all the left overs, maybe they will pitch in and help with cleanup just for the heck of it.

I'm really hoping to streamline my process for 2006 so I don't have to rush to tear everything down so quickly. Seems, however, that most teams I've been around are ready to get the heck outta Dodge after the last turn-in and get to breaking down ASAP. If I streamline my processes (and only have one cooker to clean up as opposed to three), I can enjoy a little rest time after turn-in.

But anyway, back to sponsors, there are a couple of good suggestions above that I believe I can incorporate into my info sheet. I want to finalize what I want to do as soon as I can so that I can start looking for sponsors after the holidays.

If we do well this year I will very seriously consider a consession trailer just because of the reason you mention....to streamline things. All I need in it is a couple of cabinets, a stainless steel Prep table and the three sinks. It would make it easy just to wash the cooking tools, put them away, take down the canopy's and we are out of there. If in the future, if I get a spicewine, I can roll it into and out of the trailer.

i didnt read the whole thread, so this may have been covered... but aint no way I'd be feeding 20 people the night of the competition.. Forget the distration it will be, forget the time it will take, forget the people running around, I'd just be to damn tired after entertaining to be up all night cooking and be fresh for 5AM if i can squeeze in 1n hour or 2 of sleep.. its a bad idea.. have a sponsers dinner, get them all together once or twice thru the season, and maybe allow them in the tent friday night. but a party.. no way i'd do that.
