Want to Guest MC a CMP Match?

I just thought it was interesting (& cool) that one of the sponsor-level perks is an opportunity to guest MC a match at the Championship or a Regional.
Another is to pitch a game idea to the GDC.
How about guest blogging on Bill's Blog?

Re: Want to Guest MC a CMP Match?

Only $200k to guest MC... I guess I can take out another mortgage.

Re: Want to Guest MC a CMP Match?

Who are the 500k+ Sponsors? I wonder if anyone pitched any ideas this year.

Re: Want to Guest MC a CMP Match?

This makes me wonder if they stopped looking at these forums for game ideas.

Re: Want to Guest MC a CMP Match?

well now we know how the Kinect got involved in this years game. I think Microsoft kinda bullied First into using the Kinect. Its not that using the Kinect in hybrid mode is a bad idea, its just this years game wasnt meant for it...

So they already know what next years game is, I bet they are just collecting everything for the KOP

While I think "bullied" is a harsh word, I do think Microsoft did have a role in pushing the use of the Kinect in this year's (and next year's) game. Like you said: Bad that it's part of the game? No. A good method of control for an FRC game? Give me 2 more weeks in the build season and I'll think about it.

Re: Want to Guest MC a CMP Match?

Step 1: Donate 500,000 dollars.
Step 2: Set a bucket of water on the GDC's desk and tell them it's their next game.
There is no Step 3.

This thread has given me a good idea for championships that could involve the CD community. Look for a potential thread next week.........

2,000 CD Folk raise 100 dollars each to send a representative to pitch a game involving water and inflatable clowns!?!

The question is who would we nominate to mc a match? Maybe Umbrella Man Barry Bohnzack or maybe fish boy...

Re: Want to Guest MC a CMP Match?

Is this only for monetary donations? Or do material donations count as well?

Because I don't know what else FIRST would do with $500,000 worth of bumble balls...

Pretty sure it's only material donations, actually, as the page says "supplier opportunities".
