Just a bunch of questions really. . . I'm sorry if I'm not posting this in the correct place. But basically, if one were to try to run a state contest, what is needed?
here's a list of things I can think of:
a venue, with a stage and lighting?
at least "grass roots" advertizing (uuh, I guess at least notices on all yoyo forums . .word of mouth , flyers)
Judges(at least three? Do they get paid?)
a decent PA system
a dedicated sound engineer guy/girl?
What am I missing? Also, is the Ayya still in existence,(the site has been down for a while)? If so do you need sanctioning by them or another yoyo organization? Realistically what kind of money do you need to get a contest off the ground?
Any insights or comments are truly appreciated, many thanks in advance . .
