In December, I will undertake the project of hosting the largest professional quality Sepak takraw tourney ever held in the United States. The tournament will be at an alternative sports convention in Las Vegas called SkillCon, which has the potential to be very well attended by the general public!
SkillCon is an exciting development for several reasons:
1) the event will be professionally filmed and edited in order to produce a showreel. The product will be distributed to US organizers of sepak takraw events in order to stimulate the promotion of my sport to the public and mainstream media.
2) my event appears as if it will be the best attended event in recent years . . . Teams from all over the USA, of different races/ethnicities, who normally do not attend each others' events, will compete together at mine!
3) The event will be sponsored by Marathon, the premier Thai company that produces nearly all of the sepak takraw equipment used during international tournament play. It will be the first such sponsorship of a sepak takraw tournament in the USA.
4) Players and fans who attend SkillCon will have free access to two workshops, where they will learn from 5 members of the US national sepak takraw team. To my knowledge, this has never happened before.
In a few weeks, I will launch a crowd funding campaign on RocketHub in order to raise the funds necessary to publicize my event, to fund my event to the extent that will entice players to travel cross-country to compete, and entice corporate sponsorship.
