At this point, just 6 weeks out from BarCampMilwaukee6, I'm uncertain we will have the funds for both food and t-shirts.
T-shirts are a tradition for BarCampMilwaukee, and we've had them at every previous event.
That said, we still need sponsors, or donations, if we are to cover the cost of shirts.
This is the info I have on t-shirts from BarCampMilwaukee5:
The cost of shirts was $722.71
The size distribution was:
- 4 Kid M
- 6 Kid L
- 15 S
- 31 M
- 34 L
- 42 XL
- 22 XXL
- 8 XXXL
As usual, I'm fine with specific strategies like "only the first 100 people to register get shirts" or something, which would allow us to order a lower amount of shirts.
If all else fails, we can use an online shop to provide a shirt to people that they can buy on their own, which will obviously cost a bit more per unit than what we could get ordering a larger quantity locally, but it's a fallback solution if we cannot provide shirts.
We're open to suggestions here... so if you have one, please share it!
