Questionnaire

What kind of community event are you organizing? community meetup

What's the name of the event? CAMPerz on ze Lake

What can you tell us about the venue and capacity? City Experiences – Odyssey or Spirit of Chicago Boat, Lake Michigan departing out of Navy Pere.

Capacity 15-100

Could you break down the anticipated number of attendees? Include the projected percentage of attendees who will be Doodles holders. Goal would be to bring 50 people in total to reserve a private deck. Holders would get first dibs and any remaining spots could be allocated to +1 of the holders

What is the event's run of show? Include any planned activities and entertainment. A 2-hour cruise on Lake Michigan during the Air and Water Show warm up practice runs. The event would include food, drinks (if funded), DJ, Bags, Foosball, & a rare glimpse at the Air and Water show from the lake. We could get by without a minimum of 50, but we would need 50 to reserve a private deck for the squad.

What are you hoping to accomplish through this event? Mixer for Doodles that have traveled to Chicago for the CAMP opening event. A chance to get to know each other better in a fun setting with the added bonus of being able to view the air and water show practice runs (a very underrated day IMO). I would like to showcase the power of the Doodlebank and holder empowerment to host such events. I would like to leverage my content creation request for the CAMP opening for this even as well. I would make a video outlining the entire journey since joining the ecosystem with the purchase of a Dooplicator all the way through to the hosting of a fun and successful event.

Please detail the budget plan that accounts for all projected expenses to be assumed by the Inkubator, as well as any other participating parties or sponsors. Be sure to include any potential revenue sources. My proposed budget for $5000 would be to fund 25 OG holders and their +1’s (or 50 OG's if the demand is there) to the afternoon cruise on the Spirit of Chicago that includes all you can eat lunch buffet. This proposal can also be altered to fit another model for an earlier departure without drinks included for $4k. If demand for the event is less, we could still book the trip but share a space instead of have a private deck.

What is the marketing and promotional plan to generate demand for the event? I will push this inkubator proposal to Twitter and see if there is enough interest to the folks traveling into the city for the opening event. If we do not see 15 people that would be interested, I will pull the proposal.

How will registration / holder check-in be managed? I would request for attendees to register via google form with their information including the email attached to their stoodio account holding their OG asset. I would ask of the team to validate submissions for their spot and +1 reservation. I will confirm via email to the holder the details of the event (arrival time, location, do/don’t). Upon arrival to the dock, I will work with the onsite team to check you and your guest in to board the vessel and point you to the Doodle Deck.

Please list any known third party stakeholders (if applicable). N/A

Please list any participating organizations & sponsors (if applicable). N/A unless the larger team has any connections that would be interested in sponsoring the event.

Project Lead Additional Remarks

The boat cruise alone is a great way to see the city from the lake. I'm hoping to capitalize on the air and water show warm ups to give the people an experience that they wouldn't normally otherwise get to see.
