+ I’ve got a brilliant idea for the event but it will require money to execute, who is responsible for paying for things?
As a part of the evolution of AWBTO, we are no longer creating a budget and driving the financing of the events. If you want to go wild, go for it. Just know that material costs are up to you and your team. With that said, the AWBTO crew may be able to connect you with folks who have previously helped financially support the events.
+ Are there any specific rules about what is and isn’t allowed?
First and foremost, follow the campground rules. Keep the overall schedule and space in mind so that we do not have multiple activities planned for the exact same time and space. The AWBTO crew can provide further direction as needed if you have questions or concerns about something you have in mind. Just because we didn’t have a particular activity or element in past events does not mean you can’t change things up. Use your creativity and leverage the AWBTO community to bring your vision to life! We ask that you keep us informed of your plans so we can help coordinate and communicate the overall schedule.
+ What are some examples of things not done before that we can do?
Maybe you’d like to promote and strengthen the sharing and community by managing a trading culture at A Weekend Beyond The Ordinary. You could create the guidelines, space, and logistics for folks to share items they have created.
+ How do I start?
Tell us you’re interested through the sign up form. That’s the first step. Then as you need to bounce ideas around, use your friends, AWBTO community, or the AWBTO crew. And if you need further guidance the AWBTO crew can assist. And if you’re a master organizer, don’t worry, as long as you follow guidelines and keep us informed of your plans, we won’t get in the way.
+ I already took on an activity at past events. Can I continue doing so?
Absolutely! We are not asking anyone to give up something they love doing. Please continue making the magic happen.
+ I don’t want to own or lead, but I am happy to help someone else.
Perfect. The folks organizing activities will need help. You can volunteer to help all you want!
