Today's sponsorship announcement at Spirit Mountain Casino went GREAT. I was so pleased. I think we managed to take close to 75 folks from many of our organizations to the VIP brunch, and the announcement piece itself went off without a real hitch.
They treated us like royalty, and I think overall everyone was pleased. We even got quite a bit of news coverage, which is unexpected with a sponsorship announcement. Anybody following us at Facebook can see the video Carol posted right after the event.
We did manage to leave two people behind, which was a bummer. It was two folks from my sister city board. I guess they didn't hear the announcement of when the buses were leaving. I actually found it humorous. The casino folks stuck them on another bus heading back to town.
I was pretty much exhausted when we got back to the office, but we still had two meetings to go. At the parade creative meeting, I suggested we do zombies. We really could have a great 'cleanup' entry that could include zombies, maybe a couple hundred of them. The people at this meeting were fun and receptive, and we were loud and rowdy--a good sign for a creative team. I think I'll end up staffing this committee now that Kristen is leaving our staff, so I'm glad to see the possibilities.
Now I've got a few hours of tennis to watch (or sleep through). I don't think I'll get much else done. Tomorrow night I get a massage, which I REALLY need. I'm starting to believe my right shoulder is never going to totally regain its range of motion . . .
