Running Head: Intro to Sports Management Final 4Introduction to Sports Management Final PaperAbstractThe following paper talks about what my classmates and I did throughout the semester in the class Introduction to Sports Management. We organized a 5k run, walk and bike event called Meltfest. It was a community based event and will become a year to year event, bettering the community more and more each year. Organizing this event got the class to reach out, contact people and experience situations that may be asked of us in the future with our jobs. While organizing this event we were able to understand what our job may be like depending on what direction we go with our degree. In class we spent majority of the time thinking of ways to better the event and organized certain things like the gift bags, the route, how we were going to set up the streets etc. After the event we thought of ways to fix things that went wrong or changes things that the people didn't like.Relationships Between the Book and MelfestThroughout the semester one could begin to realize the relations between the book and Meltfest. After the event we determined that the organization of Meltfest was related to communication, sport facility and event management, all of these being really important to the success of Meltfest.The biggest relationship was communication because without communication this event wouldn't have ever happened. Meltfest got its start because of the class communicating, calling sponsors and getting ahold of anyone that would help. First we all split up into groups. I was a part of the sales group and the first thing we had to do is communicate about what each person in our group had to do. After we established what each person was in charge of we then picked up the phone and started dialing. We called the certain businesses we were supposed to get in contact with and communicate with them about what they could help us with. Throughout the organization of the event our class had to also communicate with the business club because all decisions went through them. Without communication there can't be any organization and without organization the event wouldn't be successful. The communication was the key to making everyone happy and to making sure they had a good time. In short, everyone communicates with everyone. If you tell one person about the event they are going to tell other people about it and communicate.Another big part of Meltfest was sport facility because without the proper facility the event cannot function well enough to make the people and the community happy. When we started the event we already knew that the event would be at the Brewhouse, we just didn't know where all the venders and stage were going to be. So that took sometime going over. We spent a couple class periods going over where we wanted the stage and venders to be. Once we had that figured out we had to okay it with the business club and the head of the event. One issue that...
