Readers, I’ve been out of the “Event Director” stage of my life for a few years now, and focusing on the software side and growing the Good Times business has been tremendously fun, challenging, and rewarding. But yesterday I had a call where I was essentially being asked to be Event Director, and I must admit it was a refreshing change of pace!
There’s something exhilarating about working together with other people to take a heap of puzzle pieces and somehow put them all together just right and see a successful event happen right before your very eyes! Sure, you have to deal with the headaches but the reward of a job well done makes them all worth it.
Even in the earliest of planning stages and asking questions about expected volume of participants, course layout, number of events, volunteer coordination, signage, backup plans, timing strategy, registration strategy—all of that is simply fun to discuss. Well, it is to me at least!
Speaking of planning stages, where are you in the planning of your races for the rest of this year? The end of June is quickly approaching, and late summer and fall race planning is hopefully in full swing for you. This is a great time to consider Good Times software for your race registration and race timing needs. Call us, and we’ll be happy to give a live webinar to show you the software and how easy it is to use.
Have a great weekend!
