How to Be One Tough Mudder

by admin on January 10, 2013

Premier Obstacle Course Comes to Melbourne January 2013

Some of us think we’re tough, but the Tough Mudder obstacle course begs to differ. If you’re ready for one of the biggest challenges of team competition to hit the world, then you’re ready to take on the Tough Mudder event.

With an obstacle course designed by British Special Forces to be an extreme test of stamina, strength, teamwork and mental aptitude, the Tough Mudder challenge is no ordinary event.

Completing the Tough Mudder course will give you a hardcore feeling of personal achievement and strengthen your sense of team camaraderie, all while having an absolute blast.

Tough Mudder Hits Melbourne

On 19 and 20 January 2013, Tough Mudder hits Melbourne for an awesome Australian challenge. Only 80% of the tickets are sold right now, so you can still participate in this killer course. Whether you’re entering alone or part of a team, just remember to register before 11 January 2013.

Registration includes a bright orange headband, Tough Mudder shirt, obligatory bragging rights, and, of course, a very hard-earned beer. That’s right, you get an ice-cold pint as soon as you finish the Tough Mudder course.

Not only that, but you’ll experience a fabulous post-party with live music, an awards ceremony for the toughest of the tough, and even the Carnival of Tough.

This is No Marathon

Tough Mudder is definitely no marathon. Why not, you ask? Well, because marathons are boring! The challenge is, above all else, FUN. Mudders never take themselves too seriously. Between cheeky event names, outrageous costumes, and the sweet after party, this is much more than a physical challenge.

What really makes the Tough Mudder stand apart from other courses and marathons is the simple fact that no one can complete the course alone.

Part of the challenge is never leaving your teammates behind, and making sure the whole team completes the course. That, and having a hardcore sense of humor.

Spectator Sport

For those who just like to watch, bring it on! Tough Mudder has spectator tickets available for only $20 in advance and $40 on site. Make an event out of it, and support your friends in the competition, or just come to watch the extreme fun firsthand.

You could even take it to the next level, and print up your own event tickets for your spectator group. Include a bus ride to and from the course site, and keep it organized with easy to use tickets.

Give Your Party a Sporting Shot!

Keep Your AFL Grand Final Event Organised

The 2012 Australian Football League (AFL) Grand Final is coming up pronto. Traditionally held on the last Saturday in September on the Melbourne Cricket Ground, this annual event has a tendency to draw a huge crowd at home, in addition to its being broadcast worldwide.

The AFL Grand Final Day is more than just your ordinary Australian rules football game or tourney. This shindig boasts an entire WEEK of events, set to start off Sunday before the event with the VFL Grand Final at Etihad Stadium, and on into Friday with the “Footy on Parade” in Melbourne.

Footy Fever

Millions of people are counting down the days until they get to watch the AFL Grand Final. If you can’t make it to the Ground in Melbourne for the seat at the real event, which many people won’t, chances are there’s a Grand Final party nearby you can attend that will work just fine.

And if you’re one of those fine people who’s having a party for the big Day, you’ll want to get ready for the crazed footy fans in advance.

Whether you’re inviting hundreds of people to the local pub, or just having a bunch of mates over for a BBQ, thinking ahead and staying organised can be difficult. With all the “footy fever” going on (and it’s only going to get wackier from here) you may need a bit of help keeping it all together.

Feed the Masses

Let’s face it: asking people to pitch in at a party isn’t something new. Especially for popular AFL Grand Final parties, where people tend to eat and drink a good bit, asking for some kind of donation for the food and drinks is far from uncalled for.

Instead of going around to your guests and asking them one by one for donations, consider securing the donations in advance. This will help you in 3 ways:

  1. Sell Event Tickets. Explain to your guests that when they purchase a ticket, they are paying for the food and drinks that they will consume in advance.
  2. Keep a Head Count. You’ll know how many people are coming from the number of tickets that were purchased, and you can leverage this information to purchase the right amount of food and drinks.
  3. Match it Up. It’s incredibly easy to print Event Tickets, and it’s easy to find matching media for your event. If you don’t like the pre-designed templates, enjoy the freedom to Design Your Own.

Be a team player! Keep your event organised so that everyone can have a “Grand” time at your Final party.

Free Perks to Attract More Guests to Your Event

The South Australian Living Arts Festival (SALA) is a community-based movement focused on incorporating South Australian artists at all levels of the visual arts to be part of their diverse annual celebration. The self-proclaimed mission of the organisation that holds this festival is to “bring everyone to South Australian art and artists.”

Aspiring to be the most innovative visual arts festival in the community, SALA brings together South Australian visual artists well known throughout the world, in addition to recently emerging artists who are just beginning to blossom.

One of the most notable things about this festival, of all things, is that it’s completely free. Sounds like a great way to attract people to your event, doesn’t it?

This is Only the Beginning

If you’re looking for a great way to attract more people to your next event, take a word from the wise people who run the SALA festival and offer your guests something for free.

Whether you are a musician, a painter, or a photographer, showing your work to an audience is what it’s all about. It’s how you get noticed, how you get your name out there, and how you start to build a name for yourself and your art.

You may not be able to hold an entire event for free, but start small. If you’re holding an event with tickets that people have purchased in advance, give them a drink ticket as an extra perk. Just for purchasing a ticket and coming to your event, they’ll receive one free drink.

Stay Connected

Offering an incentive is just the start. Once you get people to come to your event, you’ve got to wow them. If you already have another event planned ahead of time, when your guests come to see you that night, you can offer them tickets to your next event as well.

Let them know if they liked what they saw and want to continue to support your art, you’re going to be the first one to thank them and invite them to see you again. Start and email list, and keep people updated with your latest event news.

Offer those who support you most full-heartedly a VIP Pass for your next event. This is an especially good way to develop a good rapport with your fabulous fans.

Many times, all it takes is a little incentive to attract a phenomenal crowd.

Remember When…

by admin on April 28, 2012

Event Ticket Stubs as Keepsakes

Once in a while, you come across your old box of keepsakes, and the memories come flooding back. It may be a shoebox, an old tin, or even a jar, but when you run into it and start to look through it, every piece in there brings back a distinct feeling, as though you were reliving the whole experience.

Many people (especially young people) collect ticket stubs for this exact same reason. They want to cherish the experiences they’ve had and be able to remember what it was like to be there when they hold their ticket stubs in their palms, for years to come.

Why should anyone be deprived of such a delightful exercise in nostalgia as collecting ticket stubs? They shouldn’t! People should be given the opportunity to collect ticket stubs from any and every event they want to.

Stub-born

Some people were born to collect stubs. For some, collecting ticket stubs from events they’ve been to is akin to taking pictures with relatives; when the time comes, it’s just what they do. But seeing as it’s a pretty popular trend (collecting stubs from events you’ve attended, that is), we’re here to tell you that no event should be left behind.

Think about the last event you planned or hosted. Even think about the last gathering you had for a specific cause or purpose. Was it important to the community in some way? Did you sell tickets? If your answer is no, you’re missing out on some big opportunities.

Opportunity # 1: Give people an easy way to remember you! Even if you don’t plan to charge, giving out individual, personalized Event Tickets with specific designs or themes printed on each is a thoughtful way to offer a keepsake, which will in turn help people remember you and the cause you support.

Opportunity # 2: If you’re not charging for people to enter your event, perhaps you should consider it! Event Tickets are a great way to encourage your guests to donate to your fund. And with hundreds of different ticket templates to choose from, you can pick the right design that compliments your cause.

Opportunity # 3: Event Tickets are the perfect way to advertise your event in advance. Send out your unique Tickets to as many people as you want as soon as they’ve been printed, and watch as the RSVPs come rolling in.

Don’t let any guest miss out on a new grand addition to their ticket stub collection, or a treasured keepsake that reminds them of your organization time and time again.
