    It's one thing for a major company to contribute money and/or prizes and be a title sponsor.

    It's another thing for a group of guys who truly love the hobby to band together and spend (in some cases) a little of their own money, help out with the organization of a huge event like a National Qualifier, and be there to help make it run smoothly. To me my time spent helping out is worth more then a dollar amount placed on it.

    I say keep our name on the event. After all, no matter who the possible title sponsor is, it wouldn't be happening without those of us within the club.

    first is us then whoever wants to partner up. there wouldn't be a nenq without the hard work that has been done by members of this club. to sell out and let them come first with them just putting up a few prizes there going to just write off as advertising isnt going to sit well it sounds. the hard work and dedication to this hobby by these members is worth more then any prize money or advertising. were here with or without them. would be nice to have a huge company on board, but we did it without them in the past and can continue without as well.
    my 2 penny's anyway

    Thanks for all the input guys. I will be talking to them next week and see what their expectations are. You can believe me that I will not sell out the name of the club and all that we have accomplished for a few prizes. I think that it is awesome that a large company has interest in the event, it means we are doing the right thing. The logo for the event is already done, I would hate to asked the person who did it for free to redo it. I will keep everyone posted. I have talked to several other large event organizers and they said that an event title sponsor should give between $750-$1000 in prizes to have that privledge.

    I didn't want to throw a dollar amount out earlier because I didn't know what is reasonable but I was thinking, if they want to be a huge title sponsor, it should be at least double the platinum sponsor, which is what other clubs are also telling you. That would seem fair to me. As a lot of others are saying on here, I wouldn't mind including the sponsor in the title as long as our name is still in there also.

    I am one of the "no" votes because when I originally voted, I thought our name would be completely out of the title and only the sponsors name would be there. If we could put our name in there with the sponsor, and still get around double the platinum sponsorship ($1000), I would vote yes and say go for it. A lot of members on here put a lot of time and hard work into what has been built, especially you John. Would it be worth completely selling out on our name. I don't think any of us want that. Keeping our name and the sponsors name would change my vote to a yes if they are willing to put the cash/prizes.

    I'll be working out the detail over the course of the week. I will keep everyone posted. I responed to the sponsor and let them know that it would be a double platinum level $1000 in cash and prizes to be the title sponsor. I also made it VERY clear that the club name will remain in conjunction with their sponsor name in the title of the event. I am ok with walking away from them if they have an issue with that.

    Here is what I sent to the sponsor.

    The club is interested in the possibility of having _______ as a title sponsor. I would love to discuss further with you the possibility of us working together. The title sponsor level would basicly be a double platinum sponsorship. The only stipulation is that the club name remain in the title of the event along side ______. The club has put a lot of time and enregy to make this National Qualifier a reality.

    Thanks, John
