Football Season!

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Football, America’s pastime, throwing the ole’ pigskin. I don’t know if you are excited, but I sure am! Whether you like college football, NFL, or just like attending high school games, there is no denying the excitement for football is here. Tension has been building with the NFL lockout all summer long but now that it is finally over football fans everywhere can celebrate! So what does that mean? Being who I am, all I can say is “event!” Don’t know how to plan a football themed event? That is what I am here for! I am going to go over some basic things you need to consider to help you achieve the perfect football themed event!

Budget. You must know your budget before you begin. Once you have gotten your budget, figure out what you are looking for and how much you are willing to spend to achieve the results you want. Write out what you are willing to spend more or less on. Detail your budget so you know exactly how much you can spend on all the little things and al the big things.

Audience. Who are you targeting? What kind of football do they like to watch? If you are working for a college, you might want to focus on the college team on campus. If you are working for a company, maybe you want to focus on college and NFL teams. Maybe you could even incorporate some Fantasy Football into your event.

Venue. Where are you going to host the event? Is it accessible? Does it cost anything for you to rent out? Is it at a location that your audience can easily get to? Think about your audience when choosing your event?

Advertising. How is your targeted audience going to be informed of your event?

Purpose. What is the purpose of your event? What will be occurring at the event? Be creative! There is so much you can do with a football theme! Not to mention, we have some pretty awesome football attractions that I showcased on this weeks Game Girl. If you missed it, do not fret. Just click this link.

Feel free to comment with some tips of your own! My tips are very generalized and probably something you already know but there is nothing wrong with a refresher course!

Until next time,

BIG Changes!

Thursday, August 4th, 2011

I know I haven’t been updating this blog as I should for all of you but all of that is about to change! I have a new plan for the blog! Not only will I highlight my Game Girl game each week, but I will be highlighting various events as well! If you have a big event coming up that you have already booked with us, you might see your event on our blog a few days after your event is over. I welcome you to share the blog post about your event with all of your friends. This is just my way of saying thanks and a way to show others how amazing our clients are! Who doesn’t like a little bit of spotlight time? All of this will be started in the next couple of weeks. Things are about to get busy around here and I want each of you to see the great things that are happening. Who knows, you might even get an idea or two from another event featured! I can’t wait to get started on this project for each of you. In the mean time, keep reading my Game Girl posts and checking our Facebook and Twitter for any updates.

Until next time,

Happy New Year!

Tuesday, January 4th, 2011

First, I must apologize for my horrible lack of blogging.   I just got overwhelmed with all of the awesome new games that we are now offering and I was so busy doing “market research” to figure out how my awesome fans could use them all for their events that I totally slacked on my blogging duties.

But my New Year’s resolution is to get back to the blog.   The first thing you will notice is a change in the types of posts.   You are not going to see the game of the week here.   Nope, for that you will have to subscribe to my newsletter.   Instead, this will be the forum for me to show you how to use those games as a part of your event.   Because by now you know – we are way more than a rental company.   We are your event partner and want to help you maximize the fun for your guests!

This is why I love being the Game Girl!

Monday, June 28th, 2010

Check out these fabulous comments from a client last week who hosted a casino party.  Awesome feedback like this is why we all do what we do here at Amusement Masters!

“I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know how pleased we were with everything at our event last night.   Every one of the dealers was great, very personable, joking with our customers, people were hootin’ and hollerin’, it was a very fun night.”

Happy Memorial Day!

Friday, May 28th, 2010

Happy Memorial Day everyone!  I want to send a special shout out to all of the men and women, past and present, who have served our county.   Amusement Masters is always honored to be a part of Military events across the country.  There is nothing like seeing soldiers let loose and ride the Mechanical Bull or challenge one of their comrades to a battle on the Pedestal Joust!   And soon they will be able to challenge one another on the awesome Boot Camp Challenge!  Check it out:
