But unfortunately I do not have everyones' phone number so I will like to take this opportunity to reiterate our idea.
Timo, myself and some of the old Ghana athletes came up with the idea of organizing the first time reunion for all Ghana athletes including anyone ever compete in track and field in Ghana.... We want to use this time to organize the occasion and base on the out come of this year 2010, then we will decide on the subsequent years to come.
Initially we proposed to host the event in Virginia, since that seems like where we have the majority of our athletes residing at the moment.
Secondly, we proposed the Independence Day weekend in the US i.e. first week in July.
Third we are indecisive on whether to host the event in a ball room by renting a space or in one of the athletes house.
Reasons that come up was that: Most of the places to rent have deadlines on when to close, i.e. around 1am or 2am.. But in some one house we can also have our TDB.
At this moment, we are in the preparation stage, and we are welcoming all ideas on board:
c. Possible sources of funding the event
d. Get cost estimates (site rental, food,drinks <http://sfo.thegreatevent.com/content/food_bev.asp>, sound/lights, entertainment, etc)
f. Deciding on who does what
g. Budgeting for the event
h. Transportation and traveling
Please feel free to communicate your ideas . Also if you know any athlete who is not on the mailing list, let me know.
Again my email address is email@example.com and face book as Afia Owusuwaa.
Thanks for your contribution and effort as a Ghanaian Athlete
