Let’s start dreaming our year end event of the year. You can be a part of it; simply by raising your hand and agreeing that you will work with everybody in the team, whoever they are. This should be the spirit for this and all our events.
What the event will be, it will be up to all of us. But, it can be a ball, a big ball. I can make the following guess. We should aim big, and hit 150 pax. Music, songs and dancing should be the theme. Food, well, it is a must; for without it, many members will be unhappy. So, we want to be happy. Seriously, we should have a balance of the sexes. Let’s have all ears. Maybe, if you have a great idea in mind, yes, why not?
Let’s start looking for a band; either a live band or a musician without a good sound system. We dont need a pro, but someone who can make us feel young again. Let’s go all way out to look for new bands or musician, that SHC has not used before. Consider songs and music that we have not heard off for many many years, but were popular during our younger days. Let’s make a decision by end July 2015. We should pay for the music.
And, for the venue, why not a nice hotel venue. This time, it need not be at a country club. If you have great contacts with the hotels, and if we can have a good package of between $40 and $50 per pax, we can look at it. Food, cannot be too different, international, Chinese or even simply a 3-course Western.
As for the date, somewhere towards Nov/Dec, it can be fun. If not, we hold it in Jan. That should work too.
For a change, we can have corporate sponsors. Probably, a company to sponsor a couple of pairs of airtickets or cruise tickets to Alaska, another company to sponsor the beer and drinks, we can consume. Other ideas can be a company to sponsor SHC t-shirts for all attending members. , the latest Iphone or the latest smartTV. Great, let’s see what we can come up with. We should have other prizes too.
Activities and program for the ball. How much we will charge is still open.
Hope we can all start the thinking process. And, I am looking for a committee to handle (1) Venue, Decor and backdrop and F&B (2) Program and activities (3) Prizes (4) tickets and seatings (5) Registration and accounts. And importantly, a co-EO.
