How the 2012 Pan Pacific Masters Games Helps Celebrate Sports the World Over

The world had the chance to watch the greatest competitors in their field compete for gold, silver and bronze medals at the London Olympics this year. But when it comes to sports competitions, the Olympics are known for only allowing the ‘cream of the crop’ to compete against each other.

With so many hoops to jump through in addition to difficult qualifying standards for each sport, getting into the Olympics is probably more difficult than the general public could ever imagine.

This leaves out a great many people the world over who enjoy, play, and may be very good at a variety of sports. Just because you aren’t the absolute best at something, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be able to compete in the sport(s) you love.

Not Just the Best, but the REST!

That’s why the 8th Pan Pacific Masters Games brings you thirty-eight different sports competitions, with absolutely no qualifying time to join the fun.

Scheduled from 3 to 11 November this year in the well-known Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, the Games will not only have sports, but nightly entertainment, catered hospitality, and a place for the competitors to enjoy the social camaraderie that goes along with the theme of friendly competition.

Hosted every other November, the Pan Pacific Masters Games present a chance for the everyday person to play their favorite sport and join a competition that is as fun as it is challenging.

Forget the Red Tape

There are 12,000 anticipated participants for the Pan Pacific Masters Games from countries all over the world. The intent is to give everyone the chance to compete at a unique, multi-national level.

Instead of rigid qualifying times, the only requirement for entrance into the Masters Games is a simple age requirement for your sport of choice (which is usually thirty years of age).

Run with the Idea

Unfortunately, there are two fees associated with entrance into the Masters Games. If you’re interested in eliminating fees and getting around age group rules for a little sports player of your own, consider setting up your own sports event!

Save money by printing your own event tickets. You need only charge enough to break even, which should be significantly less than the fees associated with the Games.

While you may not be able to invite players from around the world, you can celebrate sports with your local community and carry on the important theme of friendly competition.

A Year of Fabulous Events

by admin on February 1, 2011

Ticket Printing around the Calendar

Are you worried about attendance at your regular gatherings? Flagging interest in a meeting or party that occurs 4 or 6 or 12 times a year may reflect a dreadful sameness. If your guests feel that these events all run together, getting them to come out over and over again can get difficult.

The solution? Create the distinction of distinct events by assigning each one a specific theme and then printing Event Tickets, Invitations, and other products to announce the theme.

Some themes are easy, almost too easy. Your Christmas holiday party, is a no-brainer, and you’ll find many designs and ticket templates to sell it. But what if you gather together every month? You can choose a seasonal theme, working with holiday and meteorological conditions. Or, you can get more creative. Why not throw out the seasonal themes completely and think of the year in different terms?

Colour, for example. With so many beautiful Event Kits to choose from, you can print publicity products in a different colour every month. Coordinate by decorating your venue in that month’s colour, and then asking your guests to wear that colour. Imagine how lovely your pictures will be when everyone comes in blue, or green, or white! Members will look forward to expressing themselves, and seeing how others interpret the theme.

Other options, for which you’ll find plenty of matching Event Kits, could be sports, nature, or cities. Browse the design gallery at a large online ticket printing company and you’ll find plenty of ideas.

Planning the year out in advance allows you to create a year’s worth of thematic intent!

A League of Your Own

by admin on July 20, 2010

Whether you live in a sparsely populated area or are an aficionado of an unpopular sport, you may find yourself craving your favorite physical activity without any outlet for your physical prowess. Have you considered starting your own league? It can be as formal or informal as you like. Done properly, you can make your matches into entertaining exhibitions and perhaps even sell (or simply give away) Event Tickets.

If your nearest neighbor is twenty miles down the road, granted, it may be difficult finding enough people in your area to start a weekly game of fistball, underwater hockey, or chess boxing, but if you can field a couple teams, imagine the response from the community! Who amongst your region wouldn’t come out for such an event? If you’re the only game in town, selling Event Tickets becomes a given. Your neighbors would rather watch your roller derby than watch their grass die, and they’ll willingly pay a few dollars to do so. Even if they don’t like you, they might be willing to pay to see you fall down, or get hit.

In more populated areas, putting together your own league may be easier, even if you want to play some very silly sport, like American football. Use the Internet to reach out to like-minded parties. Gather an informal group to practice, scrimmage, and play pick-up games. Once this becomes a regular habit, you can split off to form teams. From there, the next natural step is to find a dedicated playing space and set up a regular schedule of matches. With a little success, you can find a business to sponsor your team, grown your league, attract the interest of the viewing public, and cover your expenses with Event Ticket sales.

If selling Event Tickets seems like an arduous sport to you, don’t worry. You can always pressure your spouse and offspring into attending. In fact, if you have children, you can make them go out and try to sell tickets. The main thing is that you’ve finally found someone to play with.
