Hello there, folks!
Before we get to the weekly events, we'd like to talk to you about RTX Austin 2018. Specifically we want to give you all some details on the Rooster Speak Meet Up Party 2018. This year we had a little bit of a hiccup during the planning process where our regular venue closed down and we had to change venues. We feel like this was a blessing in disguise because The Star Bar turned into probably one of the best venue's we've taken over in the history of our parties!
This year, we had a total of 92 tickets purchased through our EventSmart page, 65 regular and 27 Child's Play tickets. We've $135.00 that we will be donating during the Extra Life community weekend thanks to you! We had 26 walk ins this year, some who were regulars, some who heard about our event through social media over the course of the weekend, and some who were brought along by friends of the server!
That being said, with the money that we were sitting at last year, the ticket sales, walk ins, Tumble 22 catering, and Star Bar fees, we are pleased to announce that we are at $1,946.05 in the black.
Our jaws are on the floor. We plan on using this money to continue keeping our server running, putting a lot of it towards the next year's party, and we'll figure out more and will keep you all posted on it. This is your money that you've helped us accumulate, and we have no intentions of keeping it hidden from you. Our initial plans for next year are to and keep the four hour party length because we feel we've hit a sweet spot there!
Did you attend our event? Please feel free to fill out this anonymous survey and let us know what you thought about it!
The staff at The Star Bar are already asking us when we'll be back, and tentatively we can say we will be seeing them next year for sure! They had nothing but praise for our group, and were incredibly thankful for our politeness, even with those darn Irish Carbombs and Adios MFers in our systems!
With that...onto this week's events on our server!
