Let's Start With The Tickets!
You all ready to have some fun, right??? I know! Everyone has been ecstatic and waiting for this announcement for several weeks now! Well here it is! Come reserve your spots now! We will have 3 different types of tickets and two are already sold. The first 4, are premium, which will come with all of your meals provided, your own luxurious room in the mansion with all the amenities and even your own personalized swag bag.
When I say personalized, it will have your name on virtually everything we put in there! We are going to let those go for $300 each. If you are a couple sharing the room, be sure to let us know so we can adjust the swag accordingly. We also have 5 other sleeping quarters in the mansion we will part with for $200 each. These will also come with free meals and personalized swag bags except - you don't get a fireplace and private bathroom and/or jacuzzi and well, you know, it's still cool just to stay with us! The rest of the tickets will be $100 each and you will get a swag bag and be able to come out to party with us! Witty might even feed you a time or two LOL! This is the perfect option for those that want to drive an RV or even brave the hard mountain grounds at a campsite! Beer and wine will be on us (maybe) Friday and (for sure) Saturday night! Well, hopefully not literally on us, but you know what I mean. Plus, you get to partake in any of the fun stuffs (like touching faces) that we will do!
How To Purchase Tickets
Witty has been mulling this over for quite awhile, and with recent changes, a website doesn't even seem to be necessary anymore. That being said, @enginewitty will be taking payments for tickets in several ways. Contact him on Discord (same name) and tell him how you want to pay. You can use STEEM or SBD and send it right here through this blockchain. You can also use BTC, LTC, BCH or ZEC, just ask @enginewitty for an address. All cryptocurrency prices will be referred to from CoinGecko. He will also use PayPal as an option and there is always an alternative route if need be. Just talk to him, he's pretty easy going.😎
Here is the major kicker. Due to poor timing and planning on @enginewitty's part, this isn't going to be as big as he originally wanted. As it stands, we have room to entertain up to 30 guests at the mansion. This means that we will still give small, more informal presentations and of course - have plenty of fun. Now, if we do sell more than 30 tickets, @enginewitty will go out of his way to rent a larger venue where we can have a more formal setting in. Once we have it nailed down better as to who is coming, we will issue a loose schedule for people to plan around. We still have a fundition campaign set up for those that would like to stay posted and follow us there as well! A couple people have already donated, some even anonymously, to the effort. THANK YOU!
Sponsors & Guests
Obviously, things like this cost money, and as our personal budgets aren't the world's largest, witness @enginewitty (currently ranked #92 on Steemian.info and head of The Alliance), has been reaching out to people and communities to seek their support in making this happen. These are all communities he associates with on some level, helps to support in various forms or fashions and are -he feels- also heavily vested in the future of STEEM. This list is more complete now, and we still may have room for a few more. It would be fantastic if @blocktrades or maybe @someguy123 from @privex put a stamp of approval on this! (sigh) As it stands, so far we have:
- @adsactly - ADSactly has been a supporter of The Alliance almost since its inception. One could say that @adsactly is @thealliance and @thealliance is @adsactly. They love that we have been supportive of them as well and we all agree that the #steem #blockchain is one of the cryptosphere's best kept secrets. They run a witness (currently #54) and have been helping to secure the chain for ages. They already have several things in mind for a presentation and some beautiful things to unveil to the people in attendance! They really are about community and we thank you for your commitment! Stop in to their discord sometime and say hello!
- @ssg-community - #steemsilvergold 'pirates' and The Alliance family have always meshed well together and there is a strong crossover of members from each community. Upon speaking with @raybrockman and @thedamus, there was a big 'Hell Yea!' involved! Maybe we'll see a new 2019 STEEM Round unveiled or have a live #monsterraffle? Rumor has it that the #monsterraffle4 will coincide with The Block Party! I do know of something really kick ass that'll be exposed! Be exciting to see some shiny people there! Thank you for your commitment!
- @spl - After speaking with @bethalea, she was all about having some representation for Lucksacks and the Steem Poker League. Wouldn't it be fun to have a live poker tournament? I'm game! Thank you for your commitment! Looking forward to my deck of cards with that sweet ass on it!
- @freewritehouse - This is a treat for anyone that wants to expand their creative hand. @mariannewest has committed to helping sponsor and come up with a few fun activities for people. This is a very unexpected and appreciated gesture as there were multiple communities and people asked that had far deeper pockets and more time on their hands that declined - many thanks! I look forward to a live #freewrite activity!
- @oracle-d - Though unable to actually attend, @starkerz has agreed to help out in various other ways and be a sponsor of this event, so we thank him heavily and will be spoken of and thought of fondly throughout the process. Did you know they were a witness too? (currently #93) They help so many people, maybe stop in with your extra vote?
- @guiltyparties - Good ol' Guilty has come forward and will be throwing some things together for us! He is also a witness (currently #61), representing multiple communities including the veterans here on the chain. Very happy to see this long-time blockchain enthusiast offer what he can to assist in our endeavor. Word has it, he is sending along a little surprise for our goodie bags!
- @nainaztengra - She has been a long time supporter of #thealliance and we are happy to call her smiling self 'family'. Thank you sweetheart! We really appreciate your contribution!
- @thecryptodrive - He has given a healthy donation to the cause! Thank you sir! He is a stellar witness (currently ranked #8!) Be on the lookout for DLease and the exciting things they will be bringing to the table!
- @josephsavage - On behalf of @steembasicincome, he has promised to support us with 100 SBI bonus units (for @thealliance) and 2 bonus units for everyone that attends, and then 5% bonus units on all enrollments from our attendee list that come in the first 30 days after the event. How sweet is that! Rumor has it, they will have a representative there to fill us in on their vision moving forward with STEEM as well!
- @brisby - Such a sweet soul on this lady! She has given some of her hard earned STEEM to help further the cause and we are ever as grateful to you as we are any donations received to make this happen for everyone! Thank you Briz!
- @eonwarped - What a wonderful surprise to see one of @helpie's go to guys step up to the plate with his own personal wallet and donate some of his earned rewards from the blockchain! We all thank you sir, totally unexpected!
For all the people/organizations/communities that have agreed to help us out and give what they have been able to. It's going to be real fun, I promise! There have been open discussions about various things we could do aside from some expected and anticipated presentations from our supporters and sponsors. I did mention musicians will be coming and @carrieallen, @chrisroberts and @enginewitty will also be 'performing'! Here's some of ideas that we have come up with:
Event Ideas & Performers
- A LIVE comedic acting performance by Carrie, Chris & Witty (The Lord of the D) featuring scripts from their show - The Play House! This will happen and it'll be an absolute blast!
- @katrina-ariel - A smashing performance at #steemfest has landed her in the eyes of many and she has won #openmic since then. Her voice is captivating and we are looking forward to seeing her live again!
- @zipporah - has agreed to come to Colorado and share her beautiful voice with us! Maybe we can even get her 'on stage' for some of The Play House characters!
- @sirlunchthehost - YES! He will be bringing along his musical talents and comedic experience to help entertain everyone, plus, will be helping to design and distribute some of the sweet gear we have planned to drop for ya!
- @raybrockman - Did you say a live pour? Shiver me timbers mateys! This be some mighty fine booty ye be bringing!
- @mariannewest - We can all do it on the computer just fine, but how about a live freewrite session? Heck, Witty will even get in on that one!
- @dfinney - The new lovely mod over there for the @ssg-community has unexpectedly donated from her own pocket! You realize, you basically bought yourself a ticket, right? Many warm thank yous, truly.
- Some of the sponsors will have representatives there giving speeches and presentations on their communities and companies like @adsactly, @steembasicincome, @thealliance and more!
