I'm trying to restart the Oxfam Open event that you may remember from a few years ago. The event was a great success, raising thousands of pounds for Oxfam. Unfortunately, after two years the venue came under new management and the set up became nonviable. However, having found a new venue we're hoping to run on the 26th/27th of October, looking at a two weapon format (Foil/Sabre). Any comments/ideas/suggestions greatly appreciated.
Venue is in Cardiff again - on the M4 so not too bad for most people in the South.
Sufficient decent referees is a must - the problem we have is that every £ spent is a £ that doesn't go to Oxfam, Have to strike the balance between running a good event (and hopefully make it more successful in future years) and raising a decent amount for charity. Hoping that some will be willing to help out for expenses and cake (volunteers please drop me a line: email@example.com)!
