The 2013 Discover Hartford Bicycle Tour sponsorship kit is ready for distribution!
The sponsorship levels are the same as they were for 2012, but the package is dressed up a little more courtesy of Tara.
> Sponsor Package > Customizable cover letter
While we have a Discover Hartford Tour Committee to put the nuts and bolts of the event in place, it's important that everyone on the board help recruit sponsors. To that end, we have a list of potential sponsors in a shared file in google drive.
Please add any of your own contacts from potential sponsors.
DHT Online Registration Ready to Go
We are ready to open online registration for the Discover Tour - almost a full month ahead of last year's timeline. Rather than increase fees, we propose having just regular and late registration timeframes this year, eliminating the early bird registration.
Regular registration fees would be $30 for members, $40 for nonmembers, $10 for youth. Late registration fees, starting Sept.19 (and including walk-in registrations) would be $45 for members and nonmembers, still $10 for youth. We would also include the option for nonmembers to join Bike Walk CT when they register for Discover Hartford.
We have debated whether to continue to offer t-shirts with tour registration. Including them adds considerable cost and time. But t-shirts are another way for sponsors (and us) to get publicity. As a compromise, we will provide t-shirts again, but in limited number. We'll note that t-shirts are available to the first xxx registrants (number to be determined based on pricing).
Other Event Management Resources
We kept a running task list, a suggestion box, and important documents and notes from last year's tour on a DHT Planning Committee page, so managing this project this year should go even more smoothly than it did last year. Now just pray for good weather!
