Afterparty
Afterparty. By far my favorite night was the one at Confluence Park in the tent!! Best food, drink, band, auction, and attendance... It became a "place to be" on that Saturday night and it was easy to convince wives/GF's to go. Start it a little later to allow competitors time to go home to shower and change. 7:30 or 8? Clem would be great again here, but Tim Emery could do it as well. Perhaps we could give Tim a shout-out or small gift?

Again, I appreciate all the work the volunteers and DTU do and look forward to next year!!!

Lunch
Lunch. To me, this area could use the most improvement. I loved having a speaker, politician, or celebrity enthusiast pay a visit and give a quick talk. The lunch itself left a lot to be desired this year, both on the food and service side. Perhaps a variety of sandwiches to go with something like potato salad, pasta salad, and regular salad. Perhaps we could get the patio back in play? Get the news outlets involved if possible, and they could get short quotes and video at lunch.

CarpSlam Fishing
Fishing. Can't think of much that needs reworked, perhaps more parking options listed. (for instance, for the REI beat you could park at the bottom by the skatepark, or on 15h St, I ended up in a lot just south of REI)

Early morning kickoff
Kickoff. Clem and Hobbs did a fine job explaining things. Food ideas, bananas, scones, other high energy foods, perhaps a local company that makes energy products or bars? (Nature's Bakery was fishing friendly to the PFA Tour)

Ideas and Observations
First let me say, I LOVE this event! Please know any comments or suggestions are meant as constructive or helpful only. I'll touch on each...

Draw ideas... nametags, a mic system, AV slideshow of past photos, beats etc. Fat Sullys for pizza. <---amazing Bring back TIM EMERY to host/MC this one! The Slam would most likely not exist without his ideas/vision.

Pairing Slamateur and Pro
Should be put in contact months in advance to get to know one another, develop a strategy, and set up a training program for the slamateur if needed.

Snap a photo of all the bid-sheets as soon as the auction is closed and email it to the staff collecting money.

Bathrooms!!
Either portJohns or access to bathrooms is critical at this time of day for everyone.
