Two weekends ago, Embroiderrific was fortunate enough to have participated as a hat vendor at the Washington State Elementary Chess Championship. The event was held at the TRAC Center in Pasco, Washington (approx. a 4-hour drive from Seattle). Here are a couple of articles that Tri-City Herald and KEPRTV.com wrote about the tournament.
We will be away from home base so we had to plan every aspect of the event and prepare for contingencies. Since this was Embroiderrific’s first roadshow, our main goal was to make it go as smooth as possible. We spent many hours planning, acquiring, and preparing everything we needed.
Throughout the day, the entire crew worked… talking to customers, taking orders, personalizing the hats, and checking frequently to make sure that the machines are running properly. We were all exhausted at the end of the day but we sold every single hat.
I will blog about our lessons learned another time.
Thank you very much to David Merrill and Stan Kuick, President and Vice-President of the Washington Elementary Chess Champions for giving us this opportunity to do this. We also wanted to do a shout-out to Josh Sinanan, President of the Washington Chess Federation for spreading the word.
