Potlatch 2009: Turn Back Time

I’m proud to announce…

Potlatch 2009: Turn Back Time
July 3, 4, and 5 at Sixty Acres Park in Redmond, WA.

The “Turn Back Time” theme is fitting in a couple ways:
•   The song, just like Potlatch, turns 20 this year.
•   It’s a reminder to return to the original days of the tournament when Great Spirit and Community Respect were paramount.  I know 99% of you had nothing to do with the shenanigans from last year, but let’s make it 100% this year!

Registration opens today, Wednesday 3/18, at http://potlatch.discnw.org/. 
•   Potlatch 2009 players must be 18 or over. Please contact potlatch@discnw.org with any questions.
•   March 18th: Bid window opens
•   April 24th: Bid window closes - $950 (USD) Initial Team Fee due
•   This fee covers up to 18 players per team. If your bid is accepted, we’ll need you to confirm your exact roster and list all players on your team.  After 18 players, there will be an individual player fee of $40 per person.  For example, if your team comes to Potlatch with 21 players, you’ll pay the initial $950 fee at time of registration, and then we’ll contact you separately to make payment arrangements for an additional $120 fee.  All fees will need to be paid prior to the tournament, and only registered players will have access to Potlatch game play and services.
•   May 4th: Bids will be given out

Bids will be granted on a variety of factors.  We’ll be looking at Spirit, History, Experience, Geography, Bid Creativity, and Volunteer Activities for DiscNW (local teams only) as just some of the team traits during the Bid selection process.  This year, there will be heavy focus on Bid Creativity.  Write us a poem espousing your love of Potlatch.  Sing us a song praising the beauty of the Northwest.  Choreograph a modern dance interpreting the life of a salmon.  Get the idea?!? Here are two examples of great bids received in the past:

Please limit videos to 2-4 minutes (we love seeing your creativity, but please keep in mind we can’t spend days watching all the submissions). Also, YouTube videos are just one form of expressing your team’s creativity.  Feel free to utilize other forms of media as you see fit.
* Please don’t send perishable goods. We open the bid packages all at once for the selection process in late April, so items like fresh fruit or ice cream sent in March might not survive very well. 

We’re planning to have 100 teams!!!  Looking forward to seeing some great bids!  If you have any questions, please contact us at potlatch@discnw.org. 

Thanks,
Potlatch 2009 TDs

Bump.

Just a reminder that the bid window closes in less than 2 weeks.  Please register and send in those creative bids soon.  smile

FYI - the team fee checks will not be cashed until June 3rd, and only if your bid is accepted and confirmed. 

Thanks,
