I just got back from the Outback Bowl from an exciting week of PERFORMING and EXCURSIONS. The day I flew back, our team competed in a MN Competition and we ended up not faring so well. It made me really think about how FUN the OBB experience is for teams. It is NON COMPETITIVE and allows teams to pull together with other teams and perform for the sheer enjoyment of performing. (Without being judged.) It also allows them to participate in a talent show and showcase their skills in a FUN and non judgmental way.
Minnesota teams are so great and we would LOVE to have you long range plan to bring your teams to our event.
Our FREE COACHES FAM TRIP is filling u. This would be to learn about the Outback Bowl 2018-19 or preferably 2019-20 Long range planning for a team trip is important.
The FAMILIARIZATION (FAM) TOUR dates are August 9-12, 2018. It is for coaches and studio owners. (Not dancers.)
WHY DO WE OFFER THE FREE TOUR: It is our way to let you meet us before you bring your group on the tour. You are much more excited and reassured that it will be a quality event. You can go home and tell your group about all the places they will see…because you have been there!
You will fly into Tampa, Florida early in the day on Aug. 9. Our first scheduled event is that evening and is a hotel welcome reception with appetizers and drinks. Arrive early so you can sit around the pool and RELAX before we start. You will fly home Sunday anytime. We will be staying at the Hilton on Lois near the airport. All you have to do is call them once you have your baggage and they will pick you up.
AIRFARE: You can book and pay for your airfare and we REIMBURSE you (Up to $400.00) when your team/studio signs up to travel with us. We will be happy to help you book the airfare to get the most competitive rate. This is our way to insure that you are serious. SAVE YOUR RECEIPT.
(We have worked with area restaurants, the hotel, dinner cruise ship, and Busch Gardens to provide coaches these complementary opportunities. Just For Kix picks up transportation (some of the airfare and bussing), and many miscellaneous expenses for you!
WE WILL HAVE TO LIMIT THIS TOUR…SO IF YOU ARE SERIOUS…ACT SOON.
ROOMMATES: We room you with one other coach/studio owner. (Assistants or significant others can go for a fee of $150.00.)
The ACTUAL tour for dancers and parents will be December 28-January 3rd. This is tentative at this time. Look at rates online….so you know what their costs would be. YOU WOULD AGAIN GO FREE (so 2 trips to Florida) Request a coaches booklet to see PERK REQUIREMENTS. Teams can fly in a day early if flights are less expensive.
We feel our tour for dancers is the best around. You not only get to perform at the Bowl Game in front of 63,000 people, but you also get to compete in our BEST OF THE BEST PERFORMANCE. We also perform pregame.
If you wish to have letters from past FAM trip participants, we can provide them for you.
Please call Amanda or me with questions. We can answer your questions.
Hoping to meet you soon!
