Here is the current status:

- we will have prize money, trophies and gifts for winners
- there will be professional photographers at the event who will make their photos available to contestants
- there will be a $30 sign up fee for contestants. This ensure a spot, lunch and drinks and a jersey.
- we are all looking for donations from manufacturers and local shops. Erin is working on donated beer and some schwag from Ocean Rodeo, David Wells is working on schwag from local shops and Kristi said she'd approach Duatone and Core. SFBA will be donating $500 for smoked pork sandwiches and will offer a Marine Radio for raffle. We can use all the help we can get here.
- Kristi offered to help with the event flyer, setting up social media presence and spreading the word through the Kristi/Rana/Yass/Marie networks.
- Erin is looking into some safety issues to support the Expression Session

I include the notes from Erin's last email for review, but we should plan a time to hop on a call to outline what each person can help with and make sure that Erin and I can support all of you as needed:
