View Full Version : Planet's input needed on this years fundraiser


Nzoner
02-23-2007, 09:29 AM
I know this is early but a couple of ideas have come up that I wanted to get feedback on.

1.Look at moving the Saturday party to a different location just up the road from my place that will handle alot more people.The reasoning behind this is being able to get the public involved i.e. more money for the charity and also a percentage going to Kyle and the Planet.

The 2nd part of this idea would be to stop the public function towards mid-evening and then we(the planeteers)move the rest of the evening back to my place.


2.This idea came from another person and would include the Saturday party with everyone either staying overnight at Casa De Nzoner's or a local hotel and actually having a continuation of the weekend festivities in the gameroom during a Chiefs road game.I understand that we have a few planeteers who come a great distance and going to Arrowhead is a big part of their reason for doing so.

The Sunday party would of course include the Chiefs on the big screen plus 6 other games on the tv's and we would look at having an actual tailgate party here etc.


Anyhow,just looking for some feedback on these ideas all thoughts are welcome.

Thanks all.

Having the first of the party elsehwere is probably what you'd need for the fundraising part of it, yes - my only concern is how much higher is the fee going to be, you'd certainly have to rent a hall or whatever, yes? Other than that, what other activities would there be other than having the band, will there be pool like at your place for example? Darts too? If so, how much extra will it mean for the partygoer, such as myself?

We should have it at my estate...

followed by a Chiefsplanet fishing derby...$10-$40 to enter..pays three places. Catch and release. We'll have weighers and keep track of the weight. Time limit could be three hours.

There would be no reason to make the tickets higher as the extra people would offset additional costs.

As for additional things to do,that's why I'm looking for feedback now,it's a little tough with my schedule to try and throw everything together 6 weeks out.

Okay, well I would think some games would be appropriate, can you rent out a bar for a private party for a few hours? Is that realistic?

Again,I don't really know what all is possible until I start checking,I just wanted to get a feel for what everyone else thought as to whether I should check into moving the party or not.

As far as I'm concerned this is the Planet's party and all of you who attend and/or want to attend should have a voice.Having it at my place is fine and we did raise some decent funds for the charity last year it's just do we want to try and do more.

As for the whole "more" angle, if history is any guide....we'll get about 40-60 people, with 100 or so others who will talk about coming or wanting to.....who can't/decide not too/or otherwise have conflicts that will prevent them from showing up. Maybe I'm wrong though.

That gathering at the brewery pub in Olathe a couple of years back was really good. Something along those lines would be great....live music is always good too--especially if the place is big enough to spread out, so pool-dart-game type things can be going on simultaneously on the "other" side of the joint.

If you start the party elsewhere, don't let the police know. A few hours of drinking would be enough to get people DUI's while en route back to your place.

I like the idea of the road game, but that's just my opinion. I've gone to a game completely hungover and sleepless before, and it wasn't nearly as much fun. At least I would have a little more of Sunday to sober up before driving 3 1/2 hours home.

Are you raising money for the same charity as last year, or will you be choosing another. I'm personally inclined to give to the American Cancer Association, but again that's just personal preference. I'd be happy knowing my money was going to any good cause.

Baconeater
02-23-2007, 01:30 PM
I'm really open to about anything, although I do think having it elsewhere is going to complicate things such as what Luv mentioned about a bunch of us drunk fuggers driving back to your place. I don't think it's a bad idea to start talking about it now to get the idea into more people's heads and hopefully get a more people to show up this year.

Bowser mentioned golf, my first thought on that is (other than I don't play) you'd be banking on the weather being nice, which is a crapshoot.

Bug brings up a good point. I do like the idea of not having to get up early after partying late. I know some of you party animals can do that but I don't do that very well. However, the travel from a bar or whatever other venue to Casa Del Nzoner might cause some issues with DUI.

I'm not sure what your fundraiser is, but I'd like to see a fundraiser sometime for the little girl who fell thru the ice and drowned here awhile back near my place... They are trying to raise money to start up a dive team in our area for such events...

Last I heard, they have near $6,000 raised, and that's just half of what they need...

I'm not saying this is what needs to be done, but thought maybe the planet might want to do this sometime later on in the year...

I like the bus idea, safety first when it comes to transporting 100 drunks.

I also don't mind spending the whole time in NZoners. Plenty of activities, but might get a little tight if it's cold outside and there are 200 people.

But you don't have to worry about as many 'rules' and such (laws, whatever).

I also like the idea of not having to get up at the ass-crack of dawn (that's why just stay up the whole night anyway)

If getting up early is an issue, why not try to schedule around a 3pm or night game?

I'd like to keep the same charity simply because Mrs Nzoner has RA and she is a big part of helping out with our anuual weekend.

The place I was considering if it's avialable is not more than 2 miles up the highway from me but I don't know what all they have to offer.As for the road game here I was thinking ahead to a Planet breakfast tailgate with Bloody Mary's etc. plus we could all hang out together 1 more day all together without the hassle of trying to sell 40 tickets,collect money etc. and then still taking the chance of being spread all over Arrowhead.

Another benefit of the doing the road game thing is it should be a little more affordable since we wouldn't have to make a donation to Carl as well.

ANy one of those can easily be set up just like March Madness. Just want to try and get at least 16 participants. I have done that before with darts. Turned out to be pretty fun. Just played 301 with double in.

At least four. That tells me that, once you've got four people, then you'll play. How did I read that incorrectly? When I think of a tournament, I think of at least 10 people at the table to start. Saying at least 4 sounded really low to me. Sorry if I misunderstood.

Okay, but you may not like it.

I always look forward to these get-togethers for two main reasons: 1. Getting together with my friends from the BB who have become real life friends. 2. Attending a game. All other considerations are secondary. (And sorry, but no way in hell am I traveling 500 miles to watch a game on TV.) Obviously I have no problem contributing to your personal expenses for throwing the party, and I certainly have no problem contributing to the Planet fund (a drive of any kind for support of the Planet is long overdue, IMO). But as far as the charities go, it's just an added burden on top of what is already a fairly big expense for me. I'm not made of money, and gas, travel expenses and game tickets aren't getting any cheaper.

There were a lot of familiar faces missing last year, including a good chunk of the core group of people I most enjoy seeing when I come down. It was a real bummer that they weren't there. I know some of them had other things going on, but I can't help but wonder how many of them didn't show up because they felt the same way I do.

I appreciate all the work you put in these things, Joe, and I certainly mean you no disrespect. Your house is a great place for get-togethers. But I've personally had just as much fun meeting people at a local bar. For me, its about the people and the game.

Dude,no offense taken,this is the kind of honesty I was looking for and I totally respect where you're coming from.

As for a chunk of the core group missing I can't say why except for the ones I know for sure(Brian had a fraternity party in Rolla,Brandon was working,Russ was working) as for others(Jamie,Bob,Phil,Roy) I can't say except that none of them have voiced any concerns to me personally about the weekend and if they or any others feel that way please let me know.Please feel free to add other core members you're referencing as this was only my 2nd year hosting and I'm going off the top of my head while typing and no offense to anyone I'm forgetting.

Jeff(jsp) did put in a post last year about the cost to which I replied there was no way to get everything we offer at a bar for $50.As for your situation I have to say since you don't spend the evening with us and you don't drink $50 is alot of money for what you're getting compared to others.

Again,thanks for being candid this is the type of feedback I need,I do appreciate it.

I couldn't afford the party AND a ticket to the game. I'd hate to have to leave that early to drive home. Especially if I've been drinking the night before. 3 1/2 hours driving is torture when you've had little sleep. I can understand those who would rather go to the game, especially if they're travelling very far.

I think that the concept of having an away game bash has merit. Part of the problem with doing the home game thing is partying until all hours of the night and then getting up at 5:00 (or not sleeping at all) in order to get to the tailgate on time.

Certainly having an away game party would fix that issue.

By the same token, it is an all day party. Most people have left, passed out, or have simply had their fill by 10:00 PM. You could shut down the gameroom at that time. If people want to keep drinking, send them down to the pond. It's only the most hardcore of partiers who are still up at 3:00 AM. Heh heh.

I don't see a lot of out of towners coming to KC (St. Joe) for an away game party. If that's what we want then let's go with it. But if we're still planning to cater to the out of towners, we should keep it as a home game weekend.

FWIW, I didn't attend last year for a variety of reasons. By themselves, none was a show-stopper for me but cumulative we opted to skip it.
1. Priority shift. We don't drink heavily anymore. But if we had come, we probably would have.
2. Money. We bought a new house and had a custody battle last fall. I simply didn't have very much entertainment money left in the coffers.
3. Leadership. I stepped down from all my positions of influence within the Planet and the charity. I thought the courteous thing to do would be to stay away and let some other person(s) naturally fall into that role.
4. We ran ourselves ragged last fall. We didn't have a weekend to relax at all. The party is great but between the party and the game, the weekend is shot.

Perhaps it would be a good idea to have two different get-togethers; one aimed at locals, and one aimed at out-of-towners. Clearly these two groups would tend to have different very different priorities, obligations and expenses.

Your post gave me a new idea,it would be a little extra work but I think it would be worth it.

Why not have a Planet Bash/Fundraiser in St Joe(very early in season) that lasts a weekend,possibly a Friday night icebreaker,the Saturday party as normal followed by the road game on Sunday.As many know we have the room to accomodate this or there are plenty of reasonable hotels just up the highway.

Secondly,later in the year,a Planet tailgate and home game with no ties to a charity so we can keep costs at a minimum.We'd have to agree upon a game early enough to go ahead and get tickets then like Frazod said meet up at a KC bar on Sat night and then have the planet tailgate and game on Sunday.

I'd be willing to do the bash/fundraiser weekend as well as coordinate the block of tickets through Arrowhead as long as ALL tickets were paid in advance by those wanting to attend.Could you or would you be willing to organize the tailgate?

Personally,I think this would cater to all Planeteers,those local could do one or both plus we'd still have an event for the out-of-towners.

Yeah making time for 2 could be a problem for some but I don't see the money being much different at all if you've attended in the past.

As for the fundraiser,my idea would be to cut back on Saturday's menu to help with Sunday's tailgate and party so we wouldn't have to adjust the price much.

Dole's working on some hellacious musicians for this year,I've already had the pleasure of hearing and I'm hoping to get a local client to help out with sponsoring that.

The game tickets should be about the same but who the hell knows with Arrowhead,I think I recall seeing a thread that single game tickets were taking a 17% hike.

Lastly,I can't speak for Phil but I'm assuming his tailgate would be reasonable especially if everyone is required to BYOB.

LMAO, yeah, I'd more likely be shitcanned trying to figure out if I could jump the thing.

Bob Dole just realized that he can't make the trip if it's for the 9/16 game.

Thought I'd bump this for anyone who still might want to give their opinion.

Thanks to the schedule makers if we do a home game we're pretty much stuck with the Vikings unless I plan on missing my college reunion and shoot for the Bengals game.

There's a good away game on 9/30, if you were still going that route.

FYI, The Chiefs Coalition fundraiser/party/tailgate is scheduled the weekend of the Vikings game.

I'm still fine with the idea of an away game. Heck, you might get more people there who would otherwise be going to a home game.

I still like frazod's idea,maybe do the fundraiser opening weekend vs. Houston(should be a winnable game to boot) and then plan on a home game later(possibly Denver in November,with a tailgate with no charity ties.)

A Friday get together for those that can make it in,Saturday party with live music,fireworks and bonfire not to mention the anticipation of a new season.

Everyone will be sick of pre-season,the weather should be good,all teams will be playing so KC on the big screen and Donks @ Buffalo on one of the other tv's followed by the 3 o'clock games(for those that can stay awhile) featuring Bears @ Chargers and Lions @ Raiders.

I'm seeing some real possibilities here.

I was talking to Bob Dole earlier and since he's looking at bringing a couple of musicians with him this year we're going to see what their schedule is like.

I've had a couple of suggestions on other things we could donate too and would like some feedback if anyone is so inclined.

When we disbanded 37 Forever I felt the logical move was to go with The Arthritis Community Services here in St Joe because it was local and because Mrs. Nzoner was diagnosed with RA and her contribution to making our parties a success is next to none.

Any thoughts are appreciated.

In honor of Jared Allen, you could donate the procedes to MADD, DARE, or some such anti-substance abuse education organization.

We'd be helping the ones who have a problem with it. We drink so they don't have to. :)

We raised about $6k last year at a bar here doing a fundraiser for a guy who needs a liver translplant.

Bump for a good cause. I'll be there nzoner. Maybe have Pinatas cater? They're good people and maybe you'll get some business with a little help from Stewie. :)

So how does your wife feel about you going around and doing everyone's moms all the time?

Well, I can check with some friends of mine and see if they'll stop by. Are strippers ok for this party?
We are still waiting for the strippers you were going to bring last night.

If you start the party elsewhere, don't let the police know. A few hours of drinking would be enough to get people DUI's while en route back to your place.

I like the idea of the road game, but that's just my opinion. I've gone to a game completely hungover and sleepless before, and it wasn't nearly as much fun. At least I would have a little more of Sunday to sober up before driving 3 1/2 hours home.

Are you raising money for the same charity as last year, or will you be choosing another. I'm personally inclined to give to the American Cancer Association, but again that's just personal preference. I'd be happy knowing my money was going to any good cause.

Bug brings up a good point. I do like the idea of not having to get up early after partying late. I know some of you party animals can do that but I don't do that very well. However, the travel from a bar or whatever other venue to Casa Del Nzoner might cause some issues with DUI.
If the drinks will follow us to Nzoner's, as I know they will, I can wait to do my drinking to help keep a few Planeteers safe for the trip back. I am sure there would be at least a few others willing to take on designated driver duties for the move back.
