Ok, looking for a little advice from the wakeworld community, we are interested in having a wakeboarding event in West Palm Beach on November 17, 2007. The event will be sponsored by Coastal Surf and Ski (local boardshop) and JR Watersports (Mastercraft Dealer), the event will by what we are considering a PROS and JOES event, where we will get five or six pro riders to come out and people can pay an entry fee to ride some amount of time with a pro that day. The day will end with a demo/comp between the pro riders with events/vendors and what not going on all day. It should be a unique experience to let the average wakeboarder (me) spend some time with some of our idols. Anyway, in trying to get a permit through Palm Beach County it has become apparent that the best course of action is to run this event through a non-profit club. Well immediately it brings attention to the fact that this area does not have a wakeboard club (what a shame, South Florida Huh?). Anyway, we are trying to do that now, I just wondered if anyone had advice or words of wisdom or pitfalls to look out for as we proceed in forming the club. Also does anyone have a set of bylaws from their club that we could use as a template for ours. Any help would be appreciated. The goal is to get wakeboarders in this area organized so that we can start to have events and grow our sport, after all we can ride year round. Any help would be appreciated.
