Our artist for the booth design this year, Sarah Dalesandro, has a post on her blog detailing the design of the booth this year, along with dozens of construction photos and details. Well worth a read, and also check out her other projects while you’re there.
Thank you very much Sarah for all your efforts!
Update: The tent is up and the carpet is down. Next, Holliday Flowers will load-in the facade, tables, chairs, benches, shelves, and bar for the tent. We will need some muscle around 2:00 p.m. this afternoon, Monday, May 12, 2014, to unload the truck and set-up the interior. If you are available, please text Clay and let him know or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be sure to bring sunscreen and water when you come down to the tent.
For the rest of the week, mainly Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning, if you have any spare time to assist in finalizing the tent, please let us know and we will put you to work. Otherwise, I can’t wait to see everyone Wednesday at Friends and Family Night!
Here is the new load in plan.
We are waiting for the floor to be installed in the tent so we will NOT be meeting Saturday morning for load in. However, we will need a few people and a truck on SATURDAY to pick up the team’s new commercial refrigerator. If any team member has a truck and able to help out Saturday morning, please let us know.
SUNDAY we need members to come down to lay the carpet since it MUST be down before Holliday comes down Monday. This is very crucial and has to be done, rain or shine. Hopefully, the weather will be on our side. Dress accordingly. We will also pick up tent supplies from the team’s storage locker on Sunday.
Holliday Flowers will be doing the main load-in MONDAY morning so anyone that can be there please make arrangements. We hope to start when gates open at 7a.m. Monday for Holliday Load-In.
As always times may change but as of right now this is the best plan.
The Board has worked very hard this year to ensure that this will be an incredible year, yet again, so please make plans to help us out so come Wednesday we can all relax, grab a beer, get some great food from Chef David and get the party started on the right foot!
Finally, there are a few of you that live in town that have not received your team bags, they are still at our bar sponsor The Blind Bear. Please make sure you get those as soon as possible. They open at 5 today and while you are there grab a beer and start your Friday off with a bang! Its goong to be a great year gang, plenty of suprises coming out of the kitchen to fill your bellies and Jamie and Jeanette will be slinging some tastey adult beverages! Look forward to seeing you all.
PLEASE contact Clay Thompson directly if you are able to help with any of the load-in or email us at email@example.com
The Moody Ques team member bags will be available for pickup at The Blind Bear beginning today, Tuesday, May 6, at 5 PM.
The Blind Bear is located on Main Street just south of Gayoso. Hours are 5 PM-3 AM Monday-Friday and 12 noon-3 AM Saturday and Sunday.
The Moody Ques are pleased to announce the addition of a new team sponsor. Start Co. will be partnering with our team this year.
Start Co. helps budding entrepreneurs build their ideas into businesses. The company has accelerators, programs, workshops, meet-ups, mixers and more to help give entrepreneurs the tools they need to get going. They also work with business professionals and community leaders to provide mentoring to those with ideas.
Empowerment is a big part of Start Co.’s ideals. They believe that women and minorities should have the tools they need to turn their vision into reality. The company also believes in empowering students, with programs at the University of Memphis and Rhodes College utilizing its resources. Another area of focus is community empowerment, serving as a mentor to public service organizations.
In addition, the company has launched Start Co. Angels, a network of business leaders committed to growing the Memphis region’s economic base. These leaders not only provide crucial early-stage capital to startup businesses, but strategic guidance as well. “Success takes more than investment. It takes involvement,” reads the company’s website.
We are very happy to welcome Start Co. to the Moody Ques and look forward to mingling with their guests in the team booth. Welcome aboard!
