How to Plan and Organize your Summer Sailstice Event -
1. Choose the Type of Event:
From the Sailing/Events page select 'Create an Event or Plan'.
Host a race, cruise, rally, open house or whatever you like. If it's a members only event (maybe a race, cruise or regatta) and you're not inviting public participation select 'Demonstration'. If you're hosting a club open house or any event similar and inviting the general public select 'Public'.
Club Raft Up: Clinton Sailing Club Raft Up (Demo Event)
Club Open House: Saratoga Lake Sailing Club Open House (Public Invited)
2. Let Everyone Know:
Did you know that we have lots of downloadable artwork and prewritten content that you can use to promote your event? Take a look at the 'Organize an Event' page and follow the links to access everything you need. And if by chance we don't have what you need, let us know and we can probably create it for you.
3. Find Out Who's Coming:
When you create your Event, you'll see an column on the right side of your published event page. Send your Event page's url to your club members, friends and guests, and let them know they can RSVP directly to your event. That way everyone can see who's coming and be inspired to join them!
