Organizing Your Big Game Party with TeamSnap
Share This :
With the Big Game in Houston just two days away, itâ€™s about time you started thinking about your party. If youâ€™re inviting friends (or enemies, depending on what team they root for), a little party can become a big handful.
Fortunately for you, TeamSnap is here to help. Though you probably use us to manage your team, club or league, you can also use TeamSnap to get your Big Game party in order. Hereâ€™s how we can help:
1. Get an Accurate Headcount
A party isnâ€™t a party if no one shows up. Plus, in order to arrange seating and provide enough food and beverages, itâ€™s important to know whoâ€™s coming and who isnâ€™t. TeamSnapâ€™s Availability feature is perfect for finding out.
Just log in to the web app and create a new event. Make sure to give it a good title (hint: Calling your party a â€œbashâ€ makes it sound extra awesome). Once you click â€œSave,â€ everyone on the team gets an email invitation to the party (or bash). Once they answer â€œYes,â€ â€œNoâ€ or â€œMaybe,â€ youâ€™ll have an accurate headcount.
2. Assign Food Items
Are you asking everyone to bring food to your party? If so, make sure itâ€™s done right. If everyone brings whatever they want, you might end up with 30 bags of tortilla chips.
Instead, use TeamSnap Assignments. Click â€œNew Assignmentâ€ next to your party, then enter whatever food items youâ€™d like folks to bring. You can either assign the items to specific partygoers or let them sign up for whichever ones theyâ€™d like to bring.
3. Update Everyone Who Canâ€™t Be There on TeamSnap Live!
Itâ€™s sad, but thereâ€™s always someone who canâ€™t make it to see the big game on Sunday. Maybe they work late, or maybe they had prior plans. Whatever their story, they donâ€™t need to worry. TeamSnap Live! will make them feel like theyâ€™re at the party.
Update the score and send real-time updates to the entire team from your phone. You can also send pictures of the party to anyone who canâ€™t be there. TeamSnap Live! comes with every TeamSnap plan, so download our free mobile app to start using it.
