  • takes an afternoon to do the brackets well, get those from
  • don't be late on starting times, arrive early
  • bring your own table!
  • streamers were fun!
  • 45 people: 1 gallon of coffee is enough, 7 gallons of gaterade disappeared (could be 10), all the food disappeared (more, more), should have citrus fruits + bananas, 1 bag of non-Neon Deli ice is enough.
  • big bracket sheets do well
  • wesfest timing was excellent
  • donation bucket worked 100% better than expected
  • be sure you have blue-dot balls for young/old players
  • keep adjusting the schedule, it works itself toward a solution
  • state the rules ealier: best out of 5, poinst per serve to 9, balls stays in court!
  • let the group warm up but pull all players together for a welcome (forms cohesion)
  • take more diverse pictures and cut players out in a collage
