I hope you guys are right. I could just see them coming up with something making you move it off site, just out of spite. Not trying to piss on the plans, I think it's awesome. Just wanted to throw that out. They control the property which means they could justify it however.

LMAO

This is brilliant!

Some of the food needs to be delivered to the old lady who went off on the Midget.

If its happening on Chiefs property there might be some special rules for that kind of thing. Especially if you're going to be advertising it all over.

I'd ask a lawyer who would give you a decent pro bono answer but, at the very least, incorporate as a business entity or non-profit to make sure that the protections offered by such laws are extended to the organization and, by extension, the founders/operators.

The more on the up-and-up you are, the less effective any attack on your efforts will be.

Just my $.02.

We would be partnered with known charities from the area. There's no way we're taking all that on in 4 days. We're just using our brand name to get cans there and do some good in the community.

I think doing this with an organization that is established (or in their name) is a way to address the requirements of the law below:

And for the record, this is an absolutely brilliant idea.

Here's a rough draft type idea...rent the fairgrounds for parking and charge people 20 bucks a car if they donate at least one can of food and use the money to hire a bus service to shuttle people to the stadium and back.

Save people money and take money out of Clarks pocket at the same time as doing the "Can Pioli" idea.

If not the fairgrounds, are there any other places that can accommodate for something that big?...also are there any bus services that could handle the volume of those logistics?

BossChief 11-27-2012 12:44 AM

^ maybe an idea for the Indy game?

We've had exhaustive conversations about this avenue. After you take on the expenses of shuttles, rental, cleanup, security, marketing, and liability insurance, it's a horrible idea. Why would anybody ditch an hour of valuable tailgating time to board a shuttle to save $7 and stick it to the man? They wouldn't. They will just pay the $27 just like they've always done. The biggest problem with shuttles is you pay drivers for a full day to make 5 or 6 5-10 minute trips 3.5 hours apart. If it were just one drop and you're chartering a bus for one hour, that's an easy expense but when you have to pay CDL drivers to sit and wait 3.5 hours, that's another animal.

This is really clever. Big props to the guy who thought this up. Huge props.

Maybe you could find a member here who practices law that would handle it on a pro Grbac basis.

My bad. I mean pro bono.
