Boys, i have done this half dozen times and it is a real money maker......we called it Stars in thier Peepers and it was on same lines as TV. stars in their eyes..........All contestants get dressed as the person they are singing as....I actually allowed some of the people to mime if they wanted as it was mostly all about entertainment not just good singers, that way every body had a chance of winning.........First one i ever did about 4 or 5 years ago the pub made 4000 so it shows you what can be acheived....If you need any help just pm me. We had stage with smoke machine same as Tv and it was above all ....a great laugh...........all contestants had to pay a fee to enter plus raffles and takings you can earn a few quid!. got dvd of some of singers for ideas if you need.

Maxi and Renzie - either keep this on the topic of the karaoke fundraiser or start another thread to argue about fundraising.

All your bickering is detracting from what should be a big pile of fun.

But it's not off topic, the event was published purely as a fund raiser so the most important thing is what is it raising funds for. Then all the details about how it will be setup can go ahead.

I mean, if it's to raise funds for the International Fund then I will put my name in to sing, but if it's to raise funds for the Dennis Masterson appreciation society then perhaps not Wink

So sook those mothballs Pfft

Sorry but I thought in Septics first sentence she says to keep on topic of the 'karoake fundraiser'.

So please explain why discussing the fundraising is not on topic?

What have you been telt about me always being right!!! Angry

If you want to riase funds, why not do a monthly "Lottery" through the website?

1 to enter, and the winner gets free IM entry, or Free accommodation at a 15's, 11's or free entry, etc, etc.....

It may work, no?

(Just as an aside to fund raising)

While it's a good idea there may be laws preventing us doing that, different if your selling football cards etc

What i mean is that you two are nagging at each other about where the funds should go to - brid or france - this is a whole different can of worms which does merit discussion but should NOT be taking away attention from what the topic is actually about.......start a new thread for it Pfft

Take a telling or i'll staple your boy parts to your computer desks

Now off you two go and continue your "bro-mance" over where the funds should go to Grin

Soooo...forgive me if i don't trawl through the last lot of guff, did we get around to looking at dates? The details can be sorted closer to the time, dates need to be sorted ASAP though. I threw a couple in the mix, 26th June or 28th August, any thoughts?

I think the 28th August would be a good date as everyone will be able to attend.

It also gives Dennis etc plenty of time to get it organised and promote it as much as possible.

Whats the chance of getting this up and running by forming a committee at the fundraiser next week in East Kilbride. We have to find out how many people are willing to sing to make it a success and take it from there.
