Target

Been involved with youth hockey and community centers since is was growing up during the 1950's.

First and foremost, regardless of the activity you have to set a specific $ target. Flying by the seat of your pants will result in many negatives main one being that people are careful when they do not see a firm objective. This is due to the fact that scam artists do not bother with clearly defined $ targets. Also with a clearly defined $ target its is much easier to evaluate progress and manage time and volunteer efforts.

Concentrate on activities that may be repeated annually since the biggest problem is time and having to re-train volunteers or find qualified people is not productive.

Avoid activities that may put you at risk. Beer counter during a weekend tournament raises money but if you have a brawl as a result or a DWI accident that may be traced back to you it is not worth the effort.

Good luck.
