Creating new Chiefs Training Camp Guide ... StJoeCampGuide.com - need content advice!

So I have heard from a few people that the "guide" they give out at Training Camp sucks. Has crap in it like "McDonalds" as a restaurant in town and other questionable info.

So, it got me thinking (dangerous, I know) ... why don't use the collective power of ChiefsPlanet to put together a REAL training camp guide?

I'm willing to grab a URL and put a site up on the server for this and do any programming it needs. I know this is obviously a little late in the game but hell if nothing else it would be good to have ready for next year.

I'm not talking about news and commentary, we have Chiefsplanet for that... I'm talking about a site that has all the info you could want if you were planning on going to St joe to watch camp. We could even program a simple section that spits out PDFs people could print out with the info they want to take with them.

So who thinks this is a good idea? Any suggestions?

The URL chiefstrainingcamp.com is taken but KCChiefsTrainingCamp.com is available.. too long?

Great idea. There isn't shit out there for St. Joe bars on Yelp/Urbanspoon type sites. I'm planning on throwing together a scene report from The Missourian a week from today, I'm not even sure if they serve food. A guide put together by townies would improve the experience, imo.

Ha, The Missourian... haven't been in years but I remember it being a little rough around the edges but some really really good pool players there. One guy there was good enough that you were lucky if he missed twice per game.

I'd love to get more of your perspective as someone planning to go to St Joe and looking for info. What exactly would be most useful for you? If we can put together a definitive list of what the site should contain we can start to layout how to present the info.

Obviously since I already have code in place to map all the bars and link to their facebook info/posts/pages we have a starting point at least.

Well, since all the practices are at 8:00 am, I figured I'd catch a practice then make a day of it in St. Joe injecting some $$$ into their economy. I live pretty healthy, so when I do something like this I'm looking for a dive type place with beer/drink specials, unhealthy bar food (hopefully something unique to that area, ie BBQ in KC) and blow off some steam anonymously while enjoying not being at work. Parlay the excitement of football season being around the corner if you will. Nothing chain-like, local stuff.

I like to know the vibe or a place, if they serve food, hours, pool tables/games, music, method of payments accepted, maybe read a review or two, hopefully see a picture of the place, that kind of thing.

Great idea. You just need the right people online to give you what you need.

The local aspect is key for me as well. I know that some people will want to know all the options including chains but frankly, screw em, I would rather just put high character local places on the site.

Right now, all the info I pull I get directly from Facebook but it sounds like it'd be a good idea to add a custom description field to the DB and populate it with any info we can get from locals (I can add some but most of my info is probably outdated)

The great thing about a fun little project like this is that St Joe is small enough to make this fairly easy. Plus you really don't want some massive site, rather, it needs to be straight to the point useful info.

So, what other info would be good to have?

Anyone who has a second, check out the following sites and see what they have that we should "borrow."

ok it sounds more and more like this is worth exploring further. One thing I am shite at is design so unless a web artist type wants to step up, I'll probably just use a template. But before I can start looking for one I am going to need to have some clue as to the layout of the site...

To do THAT we need to group stuff together into the important categories of info... and decide how to present it.

I'm off to work on that now but feel free to post suggestions if anything comes to mind!

I'm all in to help, but I have limited information on the area or the current guide to give perspective. My background is in digital marketing and SEO, so if you need assistance there, I'd be happy to lend a hand.

Side note: what about KCTC.com?

Sweet!, yeah we'll want to make sure we get the site optimized so it comes up on searches.

... and KCTC.com is taken.

Should have done my research before I even pitched it

Anyway, just give me the details (obviously it'll be on the back end of development) when necessary. I can work with you to optimize the SHIT outta the beast.

HUZZAH! I found the actual printed guide that they are giving out!

http://www.newspressnow.com/frame/?h...d-5fdd6c5916af

Holy crapfest batman! That is an embarrassment. There's some decent Chiefs info there but absolutely nothing that helps someone find anything ELSE in St Joe. Ok, yeah we definitely need to do SOMETHING.

We need someone to do some recon on the "St Joe" tent at camp. See if they are just as useless.

It appears the only people doing a decent job of things is the Facebook page..

Made me work to find it! Had to read my post 3 times before I found what you were referring to. And no it's not an evasion, I meant when it comes to design I am a follower of Shia Islam!
