Starting from Scratch

I was trying to figure out what board to place this thread under and I figured the Flood is as good as any. If not, sorry! Well, I've been interested in started a Halo club at my college for some time now. This club will be a branch off of our already large Gaming club and offer on campus LANs about once a week. While I'm sure there are enough students to maintain this club once it is started, some problems arise that I am still trying to work out and would like any ideas or comments you folks have to offer. The first and most demanding problem is.. Space. Our Memorial Union is a decent sized building with a whole second floor dedicated to clubs. While I think there is a room I can "rent" out once a week for this club, there comes the problem of finding TVs/Xboxs/Halo copies and housing them all together so we don't burn the building down. I have been to LANs before and we have had enough TVs so that the most people on an X-box is 3. I have played with 4-way split screens and its not very enjoyable. My Ideal would be for there to be the most of 2 people a TV but that right there is a large quantity. Especially if the club gets more popular and gets more members. The second challenge is... Funding. I believe if a club has 10 or so members it can ask for funding from the school. I do not know how much this amount is yet but I'm sure it's not a ton. Not enough to buy the X-boxes I need. This money would go towards less expensive necessities such as Link cables, power cords, food, and fans. Another way to get funding is to ask for membership, not exactly a tempting thought in my mind. If it comes to that, what do you think a decent price would be? Next up is... Promotion. I don't want to bite off more than I can chew at the very beginning and will try to organize a nice, faithful knit that will be regulars. Once these obstacles that I have mentioned above are overcome, or dealt with enough, I would like to promote this club to more people. More people = More funding. Flyers and sign-up sheets at the Gaming Club are obvious but maybe more hands on demonstrations would be welcomed. Last year a group of people set up a TV at the entrance of the Union and offered "Halo for Charity" at a dollar a game, winner stays in. Things like this would be a great way to attract new and old Halo players alike. Are there anymore ideas that you could suggest that would help get people interested in a Halo club? Thanks all for reading this and giving your thoughts. Also, let me know how the LANs you have been to function with people over 8.

  • Me and my mates have what we called a Xbox Orgy, guess what we play. Its funny coz we all rock up at my place, do a tally on the xboxs and we have 8 of them and only 4 TVs (lack of Communication). we have awards and stuff for best flager, best all rounder, most improved and so on and so forth. We've never thought of having a club at college but i live in the lonely little state of Tasmania (in australia) and the schools and colleges aren't big enough to have clubs and what not. Pitty

  • My school has something similar to that. It's actually a video game club, but I think it should be renamed the Halo club, It's all we ever play! Hehe

  • thats cool that you are doing something like that, i sort of tried at my skool the only thing we did was a one day thing which was a small contest 5 bucks to enter and then winner takes all....I won! lol got about 120 dollars. :-P anyways all the lans that i have been to are usually at my house, i already own 3 xboxs and then a big screen tv 57", and my 31 inch tv, and a 21 inch tv....so i just ask my friend down the street which he'll always love halo, to bring his stuff, and were set for 16 peeps, and i live in a small house, lol...so its kind ahard to set it all up, we have my room, then the living room/dining room, and then i have a 100 foot etehrnet cable running into my little bros room where the 21 inch is, so yea were spread out funny, but its sooo much fun when we get going, chip in to order a ton of food from somewhere, and just kick 'n it back playin some good'old halo. hope u get ur club runnin smoothly tho, lol...good luck.
