Alliance Games Summer 2017 - Bidding

Postby kendallhart808 » June 5th 2017, 3:14 am

Hey Everyone, it's about that time of year again. I have been delaying this, mainly because it has been harder for me to actually go ahead and make requirements for bidding and to build a structured application. We are having a summer games this year. I like for the Winter Games really to be regarded as a test run. Michael and I were able to figure out what went well and what went poorly so we have tried and adjust things for this Alliance Games. Also I did talk to Billy on this, who has gone ahead and given me permission to organize the games.

So this time is a little different. Bidding for last time was...chaotic. I do not really want that to happen again, so I have created a new structured application. It requires a bit more from the bidder than before, but it all is in the interest of making sure we can pull off the games in a spectacular manner.

Before we get into that however, here is the list of sports that will be at this years Summer Games. It is not going to be anywhere near the 94 events that we had last time, as that was just way to chaotic. So we have taken the main sports from the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janerio and used them in the Summer Games. If there is a sport which you are absolutely wanting to see in this Summer Games, you can post that below and if there is enough support then we will add it to the list.

Sports:
  • Basketball
  • Cycling
  • Diving
  • Golf
  • Gymnastics
  • Rowing
  • Sailing
  • Swimming
  • Tennis
  • Beach Volleyball

Soccer was not added to the list since we already have the World Cup, but if you want to see it added then we can do that.

Application:
Logo for the Games:
Slogan for the Games:
City Profile
Name of the City:
Population:
Transportation-Airports: Name of Airports and Destinations (Continent wise). I'm looking for accessibility here
Public Transportation: Here I need an explanation of your public transportation system. Realism is key here.
Explanation:
100-750 Word Explanation of why your city should host the event.
Venues:
In this section, any venue pictures would be very nice to have and see. Understandably not everyone has venues already planned out.
I do need a list of the names of each venue, including the venue for the Opening and Closing ceremonies.
City Pictures:
Place any pictures of your city from SimCity or Cities:Skylines.
What I am looking for here:
Athlete Housing
Hotels and Guest Accommodations (this includes shopping centers and other areas for visitors)
Mobility and Transportation


So I understand that I have given you a lot of leeway with this "structured application". I will say that the best applications will be the ones with all of the parts filled out. The starred items are absolutely required at a minimum, but going above and beyond on the application is a very good sign. If you want to know what kind of pictures to put into your city pictures section refer to these two former applications http://aoin.eu/forums/viewtopic.php?f=109&t=2324 and http://aoin.eu/forums/viewtopic.php?f=109&t=2317

As far as how the city will be chosen. It will not be chosen by just me this year. The city will be chosen between me and other board members of the Alliance Games Federation which are Michael, Otto, and Billy. Anthony will also get a vote to break any tie that may come from the four of us because he has hosted the games before.

The Application Deadline is Monday July 3 at 12:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time

Good Luck to everyone and I am looking forward to seeing your bids.

So I did just update several things. First I will allow for pictures to be from real life venues and cities. But I would like now for everyone to fill out every part of the application, including the pictures.

The second part that was added is that I will need a slogan for the games.

That is all! I'm so excited for everyone's application!
